About

This restaurant is permanently closed. Lincoln is a balance between old and new, modern and classic, rustic and refined, casual and formal, everyday and special occasion. Lincoln offers an honest expression of Portland cuisine – direct and elemental yet sophisticated. The front of the house warmth is delivered by a team of seasoned local professionals who focus specifically on genuine and attentive service. The food is simple, not fussy. The food is direct in style, flavor and presentation. Seasonal fare on the changing menu concentrates on what is grown in the Pacific Northwest. What’s listed on the menu is what's delivered on the plate.

Came for Lincoln's last night, everything was delicious, as always. Can't wait to try Chef Jenn's new project RAY.

Lincoln isn't closed, so I'm not sure why the entry indicates this.

We went for a birthday and although we had intended to stay a while, service was slow and very off. Our table was clearly an afterthought. We ordered the Portland Dining Menu plus an appetizer and they forgot the appetizer, then seemed completely nonplussed when we mentioned it. Rather than come and apologize for forgetting it (and leaving us waiting 45 minutes between salad and dinner), the waiter kept sending the bus boy over and then breezed back as if nothing had gone wrong. With so many other amazing options in Portland, I won't be back anytime soon.

Excellent food! Sad it is closing, but glad the chef is opening a new restaurant in the same space.

Great preparation of skirt steak! Magical sauce!
The salad had the perfect amount of dressing.

We were quite disappointed about the restaurant as it had been listed in the top category. We had to wait over an hour to get our food. The portions were small and the food wasn't outstanding as we'd expected. Paying high prices is O.K. if the food is exceptional but this was not. I hadn't realized they'll be closing their venue which would account for these issues I'm afraid.

We went because they're closing; haven't been before. The salads were decent. The pasta was amazing. Steak was suprisingly decent. Dessert was fab. Service was abysmal. The restaurant was chilly and loud. But the pasta....

Food was delicious, and we loved the decor. Our first visit to chef Jenn Louis's restaurant, but not our last!

We had a dining month menu as well as a few other things. The skirt steak and dessert (not the same dessert posted on the online menu) on the dining menu as well as the brussels sprouts were excellent. The salad that came with dining month was a little underwhelming.

Third time dining here and I'll be going back again. The service is outstanding. Attentive without intrusion. You are made to feel as if you are in the chefs home amongst friends who are super excited to cook for you. Delicious, creative, direct, honest food. Totally cravable pastas and fun small plates. Main dishes are creative and inspired without being pretentious. Simple yet innovative combinations. Great value, and I never leave feeling overstuffed or too full to enjoy the rest of my evening. With all the hype around the Portland food scene, Do not miss out on this gem!

Cuisine was interesting and well prepared. Unfortunate the kitchen got way behind and orders took 1 hour or more to be served. Another table was 1:45, our server was apologetic and you could see them waiting for meals to serve. For the us the experience was not worth the wait.

One of my favorite spots. Every bite of food seems like it was made just for me. I have yet to have a single bite that wasn't absolutely fantastic. Jenn Louis and her staff are lovely and just add to a wonderful night out, every time.
