Diner Reviews
  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "my husband had the soft shell crab special and thought it was delicious! I had the grouper which was too salty and overcooked!"

  • "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."

  • "Great Food. Great service, just an awesome place. They even have their own book: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1933197285/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=1933197285&linkCode=as2&tag=uc9us-20&linkId=JR2HPFCSBM2LRHN4"

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "It was a lovely dinner with family. My 80+ year old LOVED his meal and we always enjoy the quality of the food. The service was excellent too."

  • "We went for the food and the ambiance - an eclectic menu and wonderful outdoor seating, especially at night. However, we were very pleasantly surprised by the creative drinks on the specials menu, and the helpfulness of our server to select the right beverage for our meal. A truly great experience all around. (And be sure to try the fish tacos!)"

  • "Lobster bisque was amazing. Scallops were amazing. Lamb was amazing. Waitress was super friendly. Atmosphere was great. Perfect dinner overall."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "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."

  • "Perfect place for brunch! The service is always excellent! Food is delicious. Patio area is lovely! One of my favorite place in Columbus!"

  • "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."

  • "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."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "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"
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "We have dinner at Lindey's whenever we visit my in-laws in Columbus. They have included many locally sourced ingredients like the trout my husband had for an entree and the vegetables in the soup that our server mentioned is grown in house. I appreciate the kindness and the efficiency of the staff at Lindey's and look forward to my next visit."

  • "The evening was perfect. The food runner Umberto was terrific - he even bought the table a dessert to celebrate father's day."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "I came here with high expectations as this is notably one of the nicest restaurants in Columbus. Unfortunately, our experience was a debacle due to lack of communication by the hostesses regarding the patio vs. indoor seating arrangements. Also, once I was seated with my party it took (not exaggerating) ten to fifteen minutes for our server to come to the table to greet us, and he was not very professional or knowledgeable. I likely will not be back as there are many other restaurants at or below this price range that I know will provide an exceptional experience."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "After ordering an appetizer, we then selected our main course. The main course was served before we finished our appetizer. S-L-O-W D-O-W-N. Eating at Lindey's is supposed to be an experience, not just a meal."

  • "This was our 2nd time eating here and the food and service was great! We have been to many high end restaurants both in Ohio and out of state...Lindey's rates right up there with some of the best!"

  • "We celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary there last weekend and enjoyed it even more than the last time we celebrated there 2 years ago. We discovered the patio and it was outstanding. There was a lively crowd there at 5:30 p.m. on a Saturday and we waited at the outdoor bar for maybe 10 minutes for a table to open up. The service at the outdoor bar wasn't the greatest, but our server at the table more than made up for it. She gave us great recommendations and service. I had wild-caught salmon and it was the best I've ever had. My wife had farm-raised salmon and it was wonderful as well. It was a beautiful night and nothing could have made it better than Lindey's."

    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "For all that this restaurant has going for it it seems they have forgotten how to provide excellent service. Waited 20 minutes at the bar before we were even given a drinks menu, another 20 minutes at our table after being seated before we flagged down a waiter to tell us about the specials and take our orders."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "Came in from out of town to celebrate a big occasion and Lindey's was just superb. The restaurant is in a charming area, the building and decor are interesting and provide a lovely backdrop for a fantastic meal. The staff was attentive but not hovering and the food was very good. Thanks for a memorable evening!"

  • "We had a very nice meal for our daughter's birthday. The fish tacos were delicious and very fresh. All of our meals were beautifully prepared and excellent tasting. The atmosphere was a little noisy, but it made you feel a part of the "fun crowd.""
