Great experience on the patio. Nicely spaced out and beautiful scenery. Amazing service followed with a great meal from beginning to end
As always everything was great. The service was excellent along with the food.
Only one person had leftovers, everyone else cleaned their plates. Really good food!
The patio at Lindeys is beautiful and comfortable. Food is consistently great and solid service. Attention to details and cleanliness are appreciated!
One of the best restaurants in Columbus, always a good choice!
Lovely patio and efficient, friendly service. Food was good but not exceptional and the cocktails were not satisfying - skimpy and weak. We still enjoyed dining there, and usually the food is excellent. We will certainly return.
Great food! Highly recommend the Lamb Chops!
Loved everything about it . Food was delicious and everyone from the host to the waiter were great . A must go if you are in the Columbus area .
I’ve eaten there several times before but for some reason tonight was a total fail. Service was horrible and the restaurant was not that busy. No excuse. It took 20 minutes to get a cocktail. The food was mediocre. Lobster bisque served with no spoon. Finally got the attention of a server who was not ours, and by the time the spoon arrived the bisque was cold. Asked for fresh lemon for my appetizer...,still waiting for it! Risotto was crunchy! Overall, very disappointed.
Great classic American fine dining food and atmosphere! You won't overpay. You'll pay for what you get: good food, great ambiance.
We were able to get a table outside which was a real treat because the weather was very pleasant. The ambiance, wine, and food was very good. Lyndey's doesn't disappoint.
Covid has pushed us to the dining room but we love Lindey’s and will always come back.
First of all the food tased great but that is the only good thing I can or will say. For a Thursday night there was a small crowd, but i couldn't hear my wife across the small table we were seated at due to the volume.
The mirrored walls carried the conversations from other tables from over 30 feet away. The small portions were expensive and you only get meat and potatoes any vegetables or salad was extra. I feel a Caesar salad that only had lettuce and crutons for $9 was a bit much not to mention the price of half full wine glasses and meal.
We will not be back nor will I ever recommend this place
It was awesome!
Lindey's was well prepared for our visit, with safe distancing and all staff wearing masks.
Our service was excellent and food quality exceptional. We have always enjoyed Lindey's and will certainly be back.
Anniversary dinner. Spacious 2nd floor outdoor patio due to COVID. Waited 45 min for table; patio doesn’t take reservations. Bar a little slow with drink orders. However once things got started, the food and service was great. Delightful, friendly staff and delicious food.
Everything was delicious! They were able to make the risotto gluten free for me, very good! The chop salad was so flavorful!
We immediately felt safe and taken care of from the moment we walked in the door. The wait staff was THE BEST. Highly recommend their brunch.
Always a favorite and always great!!
Unlike some establishments, Lindey's has retained their excellence over the years. You can always count on outstanding food and great service.
Great food and service as always. Good health protocols in place ~ we were very comfortable. It’s the little extras that you experience at Lindey’s that make it a consistent favorite in Columbus. Best calamari I’ve ever had....my rainbow trout was just gorgeous ...my husband had a beautiful pasta dish. Even the way they pack up leftovers is elegant ! A wonderful evening.
Honestly this is my 7th time returning to the restaurant post the COVID shut down. I had hoped by now that the kinks would be figured out, but I keep finding myself disappointed. Lindeys has always been about the details, and things are simply being missed left and right.
1) Steak knives were not provided for lamb and steak, and we had to ask
2) Two things were not available on the menu - and we only found this out upon ordering.
3) We ordered a 50/50 grey goose martini, and a vieux carre, classic cocktail drinks - the bartender sent the server back asking how to make it. First, its pretty disappointing that your bar staff does not have classic cocktail education, and secondly, all he had to do was google search it.
4) I used to be greeted personally when I came, as a regular, and the hosts knew what table I preferred etc, and this does not happen any more.
5) I have ordered several bottles of wine that were out as well
6) Not once have I had a manager come touch the table and check on our experience, this used to happen each time
7) Half the staff is wearing tee-shirts, and it looks like a CMR restaurant now, instead of a superior venue.
I love Lindeys and I will continue to come back, so I share these things so we can improve and grow thru this covid crisis. By keeping the service up, you encourage regulars to come back more often. Thanks so much for your service!
Fabulous! We will return!
Loved the outdoor patio! It was beautiful
We drove an hour to experience Lindey's for our 1 year anniversary date night, and it was 100% worth it. All of our food was superb, our waitstaff was extremely attentive and friendly, and the restaurant itself had a great ambiance and vibe. We will definitely make the trip back to Columbus at some point to try more of the menu!
Another great meal @ Lindey's even with pandemic restrictions.
We loved everything, the hospitlality was outstanding, Mike, the manger was wonderful and made sure we had a great experience. Thank you Mike!
We don't eat at Lindey's often, but every time has been a great experience!
We ate on the patio atmosphere was quaint but upscale. Our waiter (we forgot his name and I wish we did not b/c I want to give him credit) was amazing; helpful, energetic, funny, informative and talkative but not in a bad way. We started with the calamari it was amazing! Then I ordered the “breakfast”; eggs were poached to perfection. My wife ordered the salmon salad and she loved it (she shared a bite and it was great! We will be back soon, very soon. I wish I could have included a photo but it was too good to just let sit there!
Perfect dinner. Michael was a fantastic server and every course was outstanding. Entire staff made sure health protocols were being followed and that, even given the COVID restrictions and rules, we had a first class evening on the patio.
Excellent COVID-19 safety measures. Very accommodating as we asked to be seated outside, then back inside. Great brunch.
Always great food. The service is always just a little less than what I would expect in a restaurant of this caliber- but stellar service is really hard to find anymore. Service is generally hit or miss here. We went at an odd hour on a Friday, just prior to dinner time (415pm); the staff were having loud conversations in the dining area, mostly "shop talk" but it was really distracting. The food was really good!
Consistently top shelf for 30 years
After meeting earlier with Amanda about a rehearsal dinner at Lindey’s in October, we sat down with friends and had a fantastic meal and great visit. The staff was cordial and very timely when needed. Even though we live a 100 miles away, we will be back.
Wonderful food, excellent service. Patio is beautiful! Can’t wait to go back.
We went here for our anniversary dinner. The patio is up to the hype that I've seen about it. It was beautiful. The food was amazing and the wine and mixed drinks were perfect (my husband who hates tequila even liked my margarita). The service was great and they were sure to congratulate us on our anniversary. 100% would recommend to anyone celebrating a special day or just wants to treat themselves.
Best restaurant I have been to in years regarding ambiance.
Really happy with the COVID precautions that they put in place. Also glad they opened up the upstairs for outside seating. Best ambiance in Columbus for outdoor dining.
The food was superb and the service was very attentive. We even had a visit from Chef Max Avon and a nice chat. Looking forward to going back again.
