Excellent, as good as everMany restaurants fade over time, but not Lindey's. The food is excellent, service is exactly right, and the ambiance -- especially the outdoor patio on a beautiful evening -- is perfect. The wine list is not spectacular, probably less than 100 choices, but offers a good variety of excellent wines and a nice selection of affordable and interesting options. The atmosphere is not stuffy, but casual and upbeat. It's the perfect combination of neighborhood gathering spot and exceptional fine dining.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMBest of the Best!We are always so happy to be at Lindey's! Love it!6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMPatioWe sat on the patio and I must say that it made the atmosphere that much better. Food was excellent as always.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMMy favorite restaurant. NeverMy favorite restaurant. Never disappoints. Consistently good.6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMI had to ask for a spoon forI had to ask for a spoon for my soup. Same for a steak knife with my steak. A bit surprising for a restuarant of this caliber.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Best DayOur group of 6 called after we knew we would be running late and Lindey's said it was not a problem. Then we arrive and were seated, but were saddened to not be outside on the patio. We asked if there was any chance of finding a table and a waiter assured us there was room, then led us outside, without a problem. We had the most wonderful table on top of the most wonderful waiter named Zach. He gave us a five minute educated explanation of the menu recommending his favorites and the best dishes on the menu. The food was amazing and the prices were rather reasonable. Zach continued to wait on us adding his hilarious wit and charm to make our experience one of a kind. Lindey's will always be my first choice when I visit German Village.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMNice way to spend an eveningWe enjoyed soups, steaks, and dessert in an attractive atmosphere. I really love their bread service, too.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMMemorable.Hubby and I were in Columbus for a weekend of shopping, gamboling and the Art Festival on the Sciota River.
Dinner at Lindeys in German Village was memorable. Hubby ordered the salmon special, I, the Grouper. Asked to sub the risotto for mascarpone polenta. Waitress said since that was on the Salmon spec not the Grouper, to choose something else. OK - no biggie -
But during the salad course, she said she WAS able to get me the Polenta accompanyment. Delish! Both of us enjoyed the food, not rushed or intrusive. Will definitely go back.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMOverall, it was my BirthdayOverall, it was my Birthday & my meal was good, but a couple of people in my party food was cold & they had to send it back . The manager did gave of free desert. I thought that was very nice.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat!What a wonderful night! My steak was perfectly rare and succulent!

We will be bck and we live an hour and a half away.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversary dinnerI brought my wife to Lindey's for an anniversary dinner before going to see Wicked. The staff was attentive and the food was very good.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGood but short of greatI live in the neighborhood and walk to Lindey's. It has always been good but it remains short of great. My complaints are minor but sauces are sometimes average and at my last visit the coffee was lukewarm. The service again good but not great. I recommend Lindey's with some minor reservations. You will get an above average meal at a very above average price. This however is not five or even four star dining.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMLindey's does greatWe were a big table with seperate checks, a late arriving diner, special orders, drinks and appetizers for some. The food was superb but the level of service was what was most impressive. We never saw them sweat and this was a tough crowd to please.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a wonderful lunch.We had a wonderful lunch. It was perfect for us.

Excellent patio and great food.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother wonderful dinner at LindeysWonderful food and service. Well done as usual.Always appreciate their attention to detail, quality of the food and personal service. Thanks.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMLovely start to the weekend!We had an early Friday evening reservation, when the dining area was still relatively empty. The music was a little loud (set for when the room is full), but our waitress was happy to turn it down. Service overall was friendly and efficient, and one minor misunderstanding was quickly and quietly resolved. we like the decoration of the room and the lighting, the view onto the neighborhood streets was relaxing.
All our courses were excellent, portion size was nicely controlled so that even after a soup, a salad, a main course, and a dessert, we were comfortable.
The one-way system in the neighborhood (German Village) makes getting to the restaurant a bit of an adventure, and allowing some signs for the restaurant would be helpful.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways excellent food!We've eaten here a few times and always had delicious food. Sitting out on the patio in nice weather is a wonderful dining experience.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of Columbus' BestI always choose Lindey's for my birthday celebration with my family because the location, atmosphere, cuisine, and service all come together to deliver a perfect dining experience. I particularly enjoyed the Risotto which is consistently terrific!5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat choice for after graduation!We visited Lindey's to celebrate our son graduating from high school. We had a party of five and would have liked to eat outside but they said they didn't have a table big enough, which was okay. The food, as always, was superb! Our waiter could have been a bit more attentive but we just flagged him down when we needed him. Sunday afternoon is a good time to visit there because it wasn't busy.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of our favorites for years!One of our favorites for years!

The patio is so beautiful and relaxing-an oasis in downtown Columbus.
The staff was attentive and the halibut special was perfectly cooked. We cannot wait to go back for another evening.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesomeThe menu is varied with something for everyone. The food was superb with large portions. The lunch crowd can get somewhat loud but manageable. Parking is a pain so take advantage of the free valet parking.

The food is even better.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMPatio Time!Lindey's patio is one of the best I've been to. I wish reservations could be made for the patio, but if you get there early enough, you can beat the rush. The food is consistently good and that bread they serve is to die for! Definitely worth a visit, especially now that patio dining season is here.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday dinner for wife.My wife choose Lindey's for her birthday.

We haven't been there for over 4 years and it was perfect then and is still perfect.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMMemorableThis was our first visit to Lindey's and it was wonderful. We were celebrating our daughter's graduation from Denison University and couldn't have asked for a better experience. The round table in a quiet spot was so nice for the 7 family members. The service was great and the food delicious. I really appreciate everything that Lindey's offered to make this celebration perfect. The next time we are in the Columbus area we will return5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were celebrating a collegeWe were celebrating a college graduation and had a large party. They were very accomodating. The food was delicious. The service was excellent and attentive and we loved the atmosphere and the neighborhood.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMBartender (lack there-of)Loved the ambiance of bar/open room of the restaurant, however, the bartender (Zach) needs help in understanding when a customer arrives at the bar, bartender sees customer waiting at the bar, bartender should at least acknowledge customer waiting versus completely ignoring. Not thrilled with bar service at all for the money!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGerman Village TreasureLindy's is fun to find, fun to order from a wide menu and fun to share with one someone special or a whole tableful of celebrants.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious Food, Unique CombinationsMy husband and I went to Lindey's for a date night because we know that it is a reliable place with delicious food. We were not disappointed. My husband got the tomato basil soup (a special that night) and it was so creamy and he was raving about it so much that I tried a spoonful. I agreed with him! I got the scallops and as it was placed in front of me, the lady at the table next to me siad, "oh--the scallops look good!" They were! The whole combination of flavors added to the dish. My husband got the ravioli with the pumpkin and mascarpone. He said it was fantastic! For dessert, we got the post mortem, which we have shared before. Sooooo rich! Fabulous! Their cheesecake is always good too--imported from NYC. Very creamy.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AM3 Year wedding anniversaryMade me a hero. I called ahead and asked for a specific booth that my wife and I had a special picture we had taken together when we were dating. When we walked in, they had the booth ready with a candle and wished us a happy anniversary. We had a great time and the food and service was wonderful (as always). Well done! For my wife and I Linsey's is our place to go and celebrate special occasions. We always make great memories. Thanks for helping to make our anniversary special.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food and friendly. PromptGood food and friendly. Prompt free valet parking. It was a good way to end
a busy day at OSU graduation !5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMDidn't want our business.Our reservation for 4 was on 5/5/13, 4:30 P.M., after the Ohio State University graduation. We got stuck in traffic, so we called the restaurant at 4:15 P.M. and told them we were running late. We were told they would hold our reservation until 4:45 P.M. and if we arrived at 5:00 P.M., we would have to be finish dinner by 6:00 P.M. because of other reservations. My inclination was to go elsewhere, but my wife wanted to try a restaurant in this area. We arrived before 5:00 P.M. and we were seated promptly. Nothing was said. There were about 12 tables with 1 in use. By the time we left the restaurant at 7:00 P.M., 2 other tables were in use. They caused us unneeded concern as we celebrated our son's graduation. Food B+, service A+.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome experienceHad a great time, food was tasty, servers were friendly, I would definitely recommend eating here5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Fine Dining ExperienceMy family went to Lindey's for my sister's graduation.
