Diner Reviews
  • "Columbus is such a great restaurant town that I sometimes forget how classy and timeless Lindey's is. The food is always delicious and the wait staff professional but fun. I took a business client to lunch there yesterday and was reminded once again how fabulous the spot is!!!"

  • "Even though we spent about an hour and a half at our meal, we almost felt rushed, the service was so efficient. The food was attractively presented and tasted delicious. I had the filet mignon, which was excellent, although not the best cut of beef I've had. It was slightly difficult to cut, but tender to chew. Overall we enjoyed our evening tremendously, would just like for it to have lasted about 2 hours. We were looking for some place different for our special occasion restaurant, and were very successful!"

  • "The place is quite large and the patio seating looked like the place to be. Food was well prepared and presented. It was a Sunday evening and the fastest meal I have ever had; in and out in 1/2 hour. Would have preferred a slower pace between courses."

  • "3 of us took our best friend to brunch at Lindey's for her birthday. It was wonderful. The server was terrific. He immediately 'read' us and made excellent suggestions. The food was terrific and the setting was great for a special occasion. I always enjoy eating here and like having it as my "go to" for celebrations."

  • "Have been going here for years. Love the spot, but was disappointed with the food. Seemed like meat quality wasn't good. Had rack of lamb (no flavor) and filet (stringy)."

  • "Lindeys has the best patio in Columbus. Unfortunately, not the best food. My salad was literally a spring mix from Kroger with some oil on it. Super disappointing. The kale Caesar sucked as well- Harvest pizza has a better one. My crab cake was pretty good, my fiends lobster risotto was undercooked along with my other friends burger. I have been for brunch and I think it's a better menu for that time of day. Lindeys- update your menu and get a new garde manger."

  • "I took my boyfriend here for a romantic brunch, I had a special request for a romantic table for two area. They met all my accommodations, the staff was very personable and professional. I loved the atmosphere, and the food was excellent. The prices were very fair for the quality and ingredients in the food. I highly recommend this restaurant, and we will definitely be dining there again."

  • "My second visit and I was as happy this time as the first time. Food/wine was definitely everything I expected. The service was spot on and our waiter Bill had a personality and good knowledge of the menu. Will definitely return on my next trip to Columbus."

  • "Patio with myriad of flowers was background for under the umbrellas dining experience in German Village. From the warm sourdough loaf to baby kale Caesar with roasted hazelnuts, then Sockeye Salmon on a bed of arugula, and a memorable key lime pie with pecan Graham cracker crust, it was a meal to remember!"

  • "Our family has used Lindey's Sunday Brunch as our celebration ritual since we held out wedding breakfast there. The service is superb, the food perfect, and we love the atmosphere. Lindey's is a local institution and you'll see why when you eat there."

  • "Visited Columbus for a long weekend and had to be sure to visit Lindy's. Great service, great food and a wonderful outdoor dining/bar space as well. German Village is such a wonderful backdrop for Lindy's. Hubby had the grouper and he said it was probably the best he has had. I had the shrimp and lobster risotto- there were so many shrimp I could not eat them all! A shared appetizer, a cocktail each as well as a glass of wine each and I think the pre tip bill was right around $105.00. Will return next time we are in Columbus!"

  • "On a moments notice, we were able o get reservations, clean up and head down to German Village to Lindeys. We pulled up and they had complimentary valet, we were seated right away and enjoyed a nice relaxing and romantic dinner. Wonderful food and great cosmos! Would definitely visit again and would highly recommend!!!"

  • "It was a pleasure to treat my friend to a well deserved retirement lunch. It was a beautiful day in the Lindey's garden to celebrate a long and accomplished career . The staff was attentive and our lunch was delicious. Thank you all!"

  • "The waiter was marvelous, he was very attentive and humerous. The first course was fresh and very tasty, all five of us had choosen salads. The filet was the best I've ever had, however the mashed potatoes were cold upon arrival. My guests experienced the same cold taters. The rack of lamb was seasoned well, but there was no lamb taste. Two plates were ordered, one came with a good portion of sauce, the second plate had very little. The porkchops were notable as well as the tornedos of beef. The wine and port list was excellent, especially the Moscato. Creme burlee was a little weak as well as the peanut butter chocolate dessert. The guest with the Lindey post mortem. French pressed coffee was excellent."

  • "I have eaten at Lindey's in German Village many times and have always had a good experience, breakfast, brunch or dinner, inside or outside. This time I was with guests from the middle east and I know that they were impressed and said they would come again with friends."
    Dined on 8/10/2014
  • "The food, as usual, was wonderful. It was slow in coming, even on a Sunday that was only moderately busy. The major problem was that one person was served the incorrect food. Everyone else at the table clearly heard his order, but the waiter brought a totally different dish. The rest of the party had much earlier finished their meal when his correct order came. The waiter apologized, but the mistake compromised an otherwise fine anniversary celebration."

  • "My family and I dined at Lindey's to celebrate graduation with my family on a Saturday night. I made the reservation for 5 people on Tuesday and the only available reservation times were 4pm and after 8:30pm. If you want to dine here on a Friday or Saturday make sure you make reservations enough ahead of time!! The food was very good. The lobster and shrimp risotto was very good and a good size. The ribeye also looked very filling since it came with a side. The salmon did not come with a side, so I recommend getting a salad or soup as a starter. The restaurant was a bit noisy inside--so it was hard to hold a conversation across the table. There was a large group nearby so that was a big contributor. Overall a lovely evening."

  • "Pretty much everything on the menu is good. I got the sea bass which was moist and tender. I love sea bass and there are many restaurants in Columbus that serve it and do it well. It's a great spot for special occasions as well, but parking is a pain on the weekends."

  • "15th wedding anniversary and I wanted to do something nice for the wife. After reading reviews and talking to many people...Lindey's was the name that came up the most. Sat on the patio as it was a nice evening. Started out with calamari and shrimp appetizer. Was good...little spicy but good. Wife had the salmon and I had the trout. Both had excellent taste. Topped off the dinner with a fabulous coconut cream pie and frozen peanut butter and chocolate mousse. Staff was friendly and did a great job."

  • "You just can't miss with the food at Lindey's. I have dined here probably 30 or 40 times over a period of several years (I come at least once and sometimes more often every time business gets me to Columbus) and have never had a bad meal. The atmosphere is just lovely -- warm and inviting but never stuffy. On this particular occasion I need to take one star away for service ... our server was distracted by a party in the private room upstairs. That's fine, but on a Sunday evening when the place wasn't even half full, make some other arrangements, OK? I should not have to go out to the bar myself, you know? Still, the food was just great, the apology was sincere, and I will rush back the next time I'm in town."

  • "Lindey's is one of my favorite restaurants anywhere. I have sometimes stopped in Columbus only to dine here. On this visit the food was just as wonderful as ever -- the steak frites and wedge salad are just amazing. But I have to mark the place down this time for a rare and unusual service lapse. For reasons best known to him, the manager began a stemware inquisition while the restaurant was still quite full of diners -- including my table adjacent to the scene of the crime. He apparently noticed a glass with some spots at the next table and he deployed several servers to wipe every glass at every empty table, upbraiding them loudly for not having done it already. Attention to detail is fine - but do it when the place is closed, buddy."

  • "I've never actually written an online review, but this venue has compelled me to do so. The ravioli on the top of the plate was cool and the ones underneath were warm? Our flat bread had almost nothing on it and the center pieces were actually relatively soggy. We most likely will not be back unless a friend is having an event/party at this venue. The only positive aspect would have been the staff, they were friendly."

  • "We had a reservation for brunch and, after being shown to a table in the front dining room near the entrance, requested a more private table where we could talk. We were then seated in the rear of another room, where most people were finishing their meals. It was a bit noisy at first, but by the time we were finished with our meal there were no others left in the dining room. The brunch dishes (eggs benedict) were excellent and the fruit was exceptionally fresh. Even though the dining room had emptied, there was never a "push" for us to leave and the waiter simply checked with us regularly to make sure we were not in need of anything. We truly appreciated our time for conversation and thank the staff for accommodating our needs."

  • "No one can resist having lunch in the beautiful patio at Lindey's when the sun shimmers through the trees and the breeze is light. We were seated next to the fountain in the center which was filled with happy golden fish and greenery. It's just one of the best, nicest outdoor dining experiences in Columbus, Ohio. And, lunch was outstanding because of a reimagined Crab Louie Salad -- it was amazing. Rather than scattered on greens, the salad is now constructed with layers in a circular shape and the dressing gets a chance to shine along with bright, crisp, diagonal slicings of green onion and, of course, plenty of delicious lump crab meat and buttery avocado. Thanks, Lindey's! It just gets better every time!"

  • "Great restaurant, fabulous food! Nice that you can have your choice of fun, noisy spot to eat out front by the bar or more quiet and intimate in the back room. Service is great from the moment you valet your car. (parking in the village is a pain)."

  • "Stopped in for Restaurant Week 2014. We were quickly seated, and our water glasses were filled. Then we waited almost 10 minutes for our server to stop by to take our drink order. The rest of the service was ok, but nothing special. While it was restaurant week, it was also a Saturday night, which is always quite busy. Dinner was tasty. The duck wings and the pork belly tostado were both nicely prepared. The shrimp and grits was a great combination of flavors, but was slightly surprised of the small quantity and size of the shrimp. Maybe 6 shrimp that were 30 count. Compared to my dining partner's 6 ounce filet topped with an egg over roasted veggies, I felt a little cheated. Desserts were good also. Overall a good meal."

It feels like being in Paris....same ambience, wonderful food, a very special place where we have celebrated many important occasions from romantic lunches for two to graduations, engagements, birthdays, and dinner with great friends. We love it and go back again and again. Highly recommend!"
