Diner Reviews
  • "The evening was very enjoyable, service from Jennifer was outstanding. The valet personnel were extremely polite and accomodating. The atmosphere was perfect for our occasion, the food was high in quality and preparation. It was a very enjoyable experience."

  • "We visited for our first time on Friday, after reading great reviews on Lindey's. The food was truley outstanding! We are foodies and have tough criteria to consider food to be outstanding. The steak my husband enjoyed rivaled the top steakhouses in town, and was, in his words "the best steak I've had in years". The staff was very professional and attentive without being part of our date, or intrusive. The ambience was just right, it felt like a night out, without the stuffy feel of comparable restaurants. A true neighborhood gathering place. I would absolutely refer a friend, and have already encouraged several friends to give Lindey's a try. Thank you all for a wonderful date night."

  • "For many years, Lindey's has one of my favorite restaurants in Columbus. The food and service has been great each time I have been there. It is a good restaurant for special occasions and has a great patio for out door dining."

  • "The food was great and the patio is stunning. We were seated and greeted immediately and then once our waitress brought out our drinks she vanished never to be seen again. Had to flag people down just to get cheese on my daughters pasta. Poor management on the patio with a busy bar and horrible service with one waiter for every dozen tables!!! Worst service ever."

  • "Early dinner on the patio Thursday night. Food drinks and service all excellent and the setting just lovely."

  • "Went to the restaurant for a birthday celebration. Food was good. Service very good and the ambiance very pleasant. The courtyard is a must on a pleasant spring/summer/fall evening. I think that the food could be better with less "going on"--meaning that dishes do not always have to be blended with seafood for some awkward Midwest version of "surf-and-turf." Similarly, am I the only one who does not like pork? Why mess up an otherwise perfect dish with additional flavors that do not always blend well. Kale is great, but again, many restaurants seem to be overdoing it with a green. It's not always good to go with the latest food fad, and there are other great greens (lamb's lettuce, endive?) out there."

  • "One of our go-to places when we want the atmosphere of Germain Village and the certainty of a great experience. We can always count on the atmosphere being right, and the food not disappointing. The make a great Manhattan, too! :-) My only complaint, and it's not Lindey's fault, is that many diners think tee shirts, sloppy shorts and flip flops are acceptable attire for better restaurants. I know it's hard for the proprietor to be the fashion police, but send them to McDonalds! Keep it classy Columbus!!! Fortunately, the underdressed are the exception at Lindey's, but I like better dress in better places -- you don't need a coat & tie, but..."

  • "Business lunch scheduled, just happen to be a perfect day and we were able to get seated on the Patio! I had only had dinner on the patio, so this was a fabulous highlight to my Monday!"
    Dined on 7/15/2014
  • "I have eaten at Lindey's twice in the last month, once with a group of 13, once with just my wife and another couple. Both visits were very, very nice. The food was excellent, the service was good, attentive, but not intrusive. My wife and I will be going back. This is my favorite restaurant in the city."

  • "Excellent food, great spot. Wine selection very good beer selction needs to be expanded. Service fair at best."

  • "We were seated immediately at a perfect table in the main dining room. The waiter was prompt with beverages. The lamb chops were cooked to perfection and the presentation was appealing. We will return soon!"

  • "my husband had the soft shell crab special and thought it was delicious! I had the grouper which was too salty and overcooked!"
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "Great service and always consistent in the experience. We arrived at bar towards the end of happy hour before being seated. The bartender was clearly flustered, even sweating, but otherwise professional. Drinks were good. Appetizers were very good---mussels, carpaccio, and calamari. Salads are always fresh and tasty. Entrees were good to very good. Though we equally love seafood and meat, we find Lindey's does better with meat. The dishes are always well-seasoned, perhaps too salty for some tastes. We also spent some time with friends at the bar patio, which is always a good scene. This was the perfect choice for our group of varied preferences and ages."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "I mentioned in my Open Table reservation that it was our anniversary. We were given a large quiet table in the upscale part of the restaurant. The manager stopped by several times to see how we were enjoying the evening, our waiter was exceedingly kind and attentive and they provided us with desserts free of charge. It was extremely enjoyable and we will be returning many times."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "Our server Feather was rude, food (tuna tartare) okay. The manager was apologetic after we finished our appetizers & drinks. We had dinner elsewhere. I brought a guest with me whom had never been there before. I was embarrassed by the experience."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "My family and I had dinner at Lindey's and were not disappointed in either food or the service. Our only disappointment was there seems to be little or no communication between the hostess on the outside patio and the hostess in the inside dining room. Otherwise, the food was excellent."
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "This was our first time here. We heard really good things about the restaurant and wanted to try it out for ourselves. The food and service were great! We enjoyed ourselves and will be back soon."

  • "Met our son their for Sunday brunch. Food was great as was the service. Lived in or around Columbus for years and years but never got to Lindeys. What a regret. Also regret not eating outside when it was offered by the hostess. Beautiful setting."

  • "Two of the three steaks ordered were overcooked. We ordered them medium but they came out well done. The waitress took them back and sent the manager over. The manager came to the table and offered a cup of soup to me but by that time I had already finished my meal. The manager never offered anything to my dining partners who were waiting for their steaks. This was my husband's birthday so it ruined the meal. Later on the waitress told us to save room for dessert because it would be on the house. That part was good. It is annoying that they refuse to take reservations for the patio. We had to wait at the bar and found the bartenders to be very unfriendly. Again I was disappointed because this used to be an excellent restaurant."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "Loved everything about this place. Went for brunch and everything was amazing. We sat outside, in what feels like a lovely garden, right next to the fountain. The beignets were outstanding as well as the crab and eggs and the french toast. The waitress got our order wrong and did not offer any sort of discount along with her apology, however, the food was so delicious and well priced that we didn't even care. I cannot wait to come back and try other items on their extensive menu."

  • "We were not in a rush, but took 10 minutes to get water; nearly a half hour before someone offered to serve us. First glass of wine came with lots of cork in the glass. Second glass a little better. Tried a third, then ordered iced tea. Tried the lamb, a specialty item. It was OK, but the potatoes were tasty. My wife had salmon, but was under-impressed. Dessert was delicious, but was never offered coffee. Chris, the waiter, made an effort, but the support from the kitchen and bar wasn't there that night. Will not be on our favorites list for sure. May try again, but not for a while. A shame because we had high expectations. Not how we wanted to celebrate our anniversary."

  • "My wife and I recently moved to the Columbus area. This restaurant had been highly recommended to us & did not dissapoint. Al fresca dining on the patio was very nice. Staff was friendly and helpful. Maybe the best grouper I've ever had. Gave us two complimentary deserts for our anniversary."

  • "I had the tournedos of beef. I ate it in very small bites, the way you do dessert, savoring every bit of it. I closed my eyes and wondered if steak got any better than that. The mashed potatoes were equally good. Service was impeccable. If you are having a special occasion, mention it in the reservation. Parking was a modest challenge - if you aren't familiar with the area, let the valet park your car."

  • "We shared the ahi tuna appetizer - small but delicious. My wife had the crab cakes, I had beef tournedos - all outstanding. Added a side of bistro fries - very tasty."

  • "Outstanding food that did not mirror service. Waiters used table next to us to wash and polish wine glasses. Waiter brought check to table wearing latex gloves. Was speechless of service compared to reputation and previous experiences. Water glasses remained empty most of the time.many tables empty, so no excuse for below average service"

  • "When I booked my reservations online I noted that my wife and I were celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary. As soon as we came in the restaurant, the Maitre D congratulated us on our anniversary....a very nice touch! Food and service was excellent. Our waiter took an interest in who we are and why we were dining out that evening. He has been at Lindey's for 16 years which is impressive."

  • "Lindeys' never ceases to amaze. This is a true gem for Columbus. This is the fourth anniversary dinner we've had at Lindeys' and every one was memorable. For lunch, a drink at the bar, outdoor dining or a romantic dinner, you can't beat it."

  • "With anew menu in place, don't work the stalwarts remain, Lindey's continues to prove itself time and again. Whether for a business lunch (as this was), a romantic dinner, or just to hang out at one of the best patios in the City, Lindey's remains our top choice."

  • "First off they tried to seat us at the table that required two people to sit next to each other instead of across from each other, very bad setup. I had to request to sit at one of the other five open tables for a party of two. I saw the hostess try to seat two other couples at this bad table, both of them requesting to move, before they found a sucker pair to take it. I ordered the steak frites, the NY Stip came pre-sliced so it was dry, potatoes were overdone, arugula was wilted. Date ordered the filet, it was overdone compared to her order of a medium steak. Waiter was non-existent most of the time. Had to ask other waiters passing by for drinks and water refills. Best part of the meal was the appetizer, we ordered the calamari."
