While they do have snacks and beverages available on the theater's mezzanine level, I would recommend eating a quick and satisfying meal downstairs at the Whole Foods within the Shops at Columbus Circle complex.

Most of the seats at this venue are plastic director's chair height style with built in arms and a footrest. Not a problem for me, but in observing the audience as I waited for the performance to begin, noticed that for some patrons, it was difficult for them to comfortably fit in the chairs since they are not adjustable in terms of width. Be forewarned and potentially spring the extra bucks for the select café style table seats down in the orchestra level if this is a concern for you or ask the staff at Lincoln Center to help find you a more comfortable location if possible.
