    Lindey's is one of our favorite places in Columbus, both for the food and the service. Friday night's dinner wasn't up to their usual standards. Our server was great, which I have come to expect from Lindey's. The hostess, however, stood at the podium in front of us talking to another staff member for a couple of minutes while refusing to acknowledge us. (There was no quick, "I'll be with you in a minute" or even a nod to let us know that we existed. She just ignored us.) She didn't offer to take my coat, which I had to pile onto the banquette. My trout was delicious, but the potato cake that came with it was soggy and oily, and the green beans were a bit overdone. Everything else we ate was tasty, though. We've had a lot of good meals there, and we'll go back, but maybe not as soon as we would have.

    I have always enjoyed Lindey's for lunch and dinner. Considering the quality and quantity of food the value is incredible. The service is always impeccable and everyone from the valet to the host or hostess wants your experience to be the best. I always buy their gift cards for the holidays because the recipients are so appreciative. You don't have to be in a large city to enjoy the big city atmosphere at Lindey's.

    Lindey's servers were very attentive but the overall atmosphere is very "exclusive" and it seems like newcomers are pushed off into a side room. Service and food were both very good but could have been more gracious if we weren't made to feel that our menu choices weren't higher dollar items. We will look for a more friendly, welcoming restaurant next time.

    We drove down to Columbus from Medina,OH. We had a late afternoon appointment and were looking for a nice restaurant with good food and drinks. There aren't too many restaurants that fit that bill Especially at lunch. The menu was distinctive,service great (thanks Frank)and food very well presented and delicious. We will definitely go there again

    This was my first time at Lindey's and it DEFINITELY lived up to the comments that I heard about it from my co-workers. I travel into Columbus frequently and stay in the downtown area but had never been to the German Village area before. Lindey's is a short cab ride from the downtown hotels and the food was outstanding. I had the New Zealand Lamb and a Wedge Salad with a glass of Pinot Noir. Everything was great - reasonable price, great tasting food, great presentation, excellent service, and classy ambiance. I'll definitely be going back.

    On my visit today with my family I was tempted to go with the nut crusted chicken salad as I always do. I asked about the crabcake eggs and potato meal and the waiter said it was a good meal and a good choice. And he was right! Every bite was very savory and delicious! Can't wait to come back and get it again!

    Lindey's never disappoints. We have Sunday brunch there whenever we are in Columbus. We have tried a number of dishes, but always return to Eggs Lindey's. The Flatbread topped with mixed greens salad was amazing as well as the Carpaccio. Our server was friendly and made sure we were well taken care of even though they were very busy. We loved that he noticed we were all wearing black and immediately changed out the white napkins for black ones.

    Going to Lindey's was part of my 48th birthday present from my husband. We went on recommendation of a friend who adores the place. IT WAS PERFECT! We had an elegant 5 course meal which included appetizer, soup, salad & main course then desert (with wine, ice tea and cappuccino and Irish cream coffee to go with our bananas foster). Service was great, they kept our drinks (water/wine/ice tea) filled, and offered suggestions for wine based upon my preference, the free valet was great, and the coat check was helpful. Jennifer was our server and she was friendly, helpful and overall fabulous! My husband said he's glad we went there, and will be going again. AWESOME! Best birthday dinner EVER! Thanks Lindey's! ♥ ♥ ♥ We are VERY VERY HAPPY :-)

    They were out of the wine we ordered and offered 2 options they claimed were comparable. One was less expensive and not comparable. It was a Sauv Blanc aged in oak, a characteristic my husband does not care for. The server SHOULD have known this difference. The other, which was more like the wine we intended to order, was more expensive. When this has happened at other restaurants, we have been offered the comparable bottle of wine at the same price as the wine we originally ordered. Lindey's refused. We ordered the less expensive bottle out of principle. My husband did not care for it. The food was good, but we have had a lot better at this price point. New to the area, we were hoping this would be our new date spot. We will keep looking.

    They have an outstanding service staff who know the menu and wine list well. My husband particularly likes their bone out 12 oz steaks which he found they had taken off the menu. Hopefully, they'll be back next season. The crab cakes were tasty but seemed rather small. The "shoestring" deep fried potatoes are one of my favorite things.

    I know when I take guests to Lindey's the experience will be excellent -- from food, to surroundings to service. That was certainly the case during my most recent visit. When Lindey's opened many years ago, there were far fewer choices for great dining. Now that Columbus has a wealth of great culinary choices, Lindey's remains up there with the best of them.

    We waited for our waiter for slightly over ten minutes with no one coming by to indicate they would be with us soon. The restaurant was not even crowded/full so hard to understand. Once we did get someone, he was not happy initially but got better as dinner went along. Food is just ok----nothing special. We went there because of hearing it was an exceptional place. It is ordinary run of the mill.

    Great food and atmosphere. My date and I had never been to Lindey's and they made it a very special occasion. There is honestly not a single thing I can think of that I would like to have been different. The waitstaff was very friendly and knowledgeable and were not pushy trying to rush your food out and get you out of the restaurant. I will definitely be going back in the Spring/Summer to sit outside which looked great as well.
