Service is only matched by the great food.
It is our GO TO place in CBus for special meals/events.
Has been for years.
Not cheap...but you get what you pay for.

Mother’s 84th Birthday. Early evening dining. The food was amazing-service was a little slow- however we had an early seating so I contribute that to all servers were not in yet and one of the bar tenders was doing an admirable job.

The acoustics are not great for the hearing impaired. We will return because these minor inconveniences can be overlooked because their chefs are incredible!!!

My wife and I ate at Lindey’s before going to Hamilton. The food and atmosphere were excellent and people were friendly. We did feel a little bit rushed by the waiter, who came back to pick up the completed credit card slip a couple minutes after I filled it out. Something you mostly see at shift change or closing and at a lower price point

We had previously only had lunch so thought we would return for a post-afternoon Hamilton dinner. The valet parking was awesome. The three of us were seated at a table wedged in a corner close to a water station and the restrooms. We had made the reservations back in December when I purchased the Hamilton tickets. The food was delicious, the service was efficient, although not very friendly. In all, we would return, but we weren’t overly impressed.

Food was very good, lunch time is very loud and crowded could barley hear myself think. Despite that we will definitely return because of the great service. But most likely around dinner time. great overall would recommend to anyone!

I love Lindey's for a casual lunch, business lunch, an afternoon or evening cocktail, lazy weekend brunch, an intimate dinner, dinner with friends, a private event upstairs. Other than that, it's so-so. Oh yes - and the Patio. Mustn't forget the Patio. Counting the days. Did I forget anything?

Great food and service. My lamb was perfectly cooked, as was my dining companion's pork. Carpaccio was an excellent appetizer.

We sent my wife’s soup back to have more added to it. The manager came out and explained that the portion we we’re served was the 12oz serving and to add more we would be charge for two. I said never mind to adding extra to the soup. We sat for about five minutes and the waitress comes over and ask if we wanted anything else (she was great). We asked her if they were bringing my wife’s soup back out and she told us the manager said “we didn’t want it anymore”.

Environment and service was excellent. Crab cake was phenomenal I also got the lamb which unfortunately was extremely rare instead of medium. I never have the guts to send something back so just ate it anyway and it had good flavor just cold as ice. I will be going back

Environment was terrific, if you’re looking for a fine dining experience but in louder, bustling atmosphere. The food and drinks were fantastic and although costs are higher, you absolutely get what you pay for. Will be making my trips to Lindey’s more frequently!

We had two kids (10 y/o) with us who had never been to a nice restaurant before. Our waitress was so good with them when they asked questions, for example, about clearing dishes and getting sauces on the side. Made it a very special night.

My favorite restaurant -I'm a neighbor and go there often - 25-30 times per year. Only thing, after 6 years of this and three XMAS parties of 30+ and unending summer nights on the patio... they still don't know who my wife and are...

We had a party of 6 for dinner. We enjoyed our evening! Cocktails, appetizers, dinner, and desserts! Since the restaurant is in a house each room has a different character and vibe. I would like to go back in the summer and enjoy the outside seating.
