On review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes, the series holds an approval rating of 100% based on 15 critic reviews with an average rating of 8/10. The website's critical consensus reads, "An intimate portrait of medical professionals that explores triumphs and complications in equal measure, Lenox Hill is as engrossing as it is eye opening."[10] On Metacritic, it has a weighted average score of 87 out of 100 based on 8 reviews, indicating "universal acclaim".[11]

Daniel Fienberg of The Hollywood Reporter gave a review stating," Lenox Hill aims to inspire, and the eight-episode first season ends up more emotionally nourishing than intellectually satisfying—not that there's anything necessarily wrong with that."[12] Daniel D'Addario at Variety said, "With an openhearted curiosity about its subjects and a patient, clear eye, the series comes to no conclusions about the way we administer medical care now, but leaves its viewer with ample information to draw his or her own."[13]

In its 'Best of 2020' reviews the New York Times included Lenox Hill in it list of 'Best Shows Ending in 2020.' The Times critics called it "a riveting narrative and a modern wisdom text about the ebbs and flows of life and loss." [14]
