Wonderful food and gracious service in a beautiful setting make Lisbon Cafe Grille one of our favorite restaurants. They serve “freshly prepared, authentic, Portuguese food.” (website) Their goal is to “…give you a ittle taste of Portugal and have you leaving with a smile on your face.” (web) lWe were happy to bring friends who had never been here, to enjoy an experience we knew would be memorable.
Valet parking is uaually available, but there are two handicapped spaces in the paved lot. There is a bench in front of the entrance.
The street level single door entry leads to a vestibule and another single door. Right inside is the hostess area. The main dining area is to the left, full-height bar,lounge and private dining area are to the right.
The informal lounge area has some tables and chairs. We were lucky to be seated in a somewhat private corner of the main dining room.
Wood and tile are on the floors. Tables with comfortable chairs, linen tablecloths and napkins, are nicely spaced to allow for easy navigation and conversation. There is a full-height bar/lounge area. The décor here is somewhat more contemporary than the original Lisbon Cafe in Carle Place, but it is just as welcoming!
Homemade potato chips on the table are a treat! Family style Portuguese Cuisine from a varied menu makes choosing difficult, but, it seems that no matter what we order it is always delicious. Tonight, a seafood combo with saffron rice (Paelha Marinheira), and bronzino were the entrees of choice. Salads and cod cakes made for great appetizers. A lovely white wine from Portugal was a great addition. Our friends loved it, as we thought they would.
The wait staff is always wonderful and clearly aims to please. The feeling is that they are happy to have you there. We know that reservations well in advance are a must for weekend evenings, so be forewarned.
The small, main restrooms, although multi-stalled, are not handicapped accessible. A large, single-occupancy, handicapped accessible restroom is located towards the back of the bar, near their private dining room. If you aren’t sure where it is, just ask!
As always, we at Destination Accessible advise you to check a venue’s website, http://www.lisboncaferestaurant.com, when planning a visit, to “know before you go.”
