On our cruise, the week after SharonN's, we ate in the Lido twice for dinner and one night there were no table cloths and the next time there were. I don't know what the difference was. One night they carried our trays to the table and the other night they didn't.
When you enter the LIDO, you sanitize your hands and a greeter prepares your tray with napkin, utensils and a salad plate. You push the tray along and serve yourself from the "cold" items (salads, fruits, breads, etc) but for the "hot entree's, you choose from the varioius entrees and servers on the other side of the buffet scoop it on a plate, and hand you the plate. Then you continue down the line. We were never able to serve ourselves from the "hot entrees".
They have different stations, such as a pasta station, the meat/fish entree's with veggies station, a soup station, the sandwich station, etc.
I agree with SharonN, the food wasn's as good as in the dining room. Sometimes the entrees were the same, but the dining room always had one or two entrees that weren't being served in the Lido.
