                                                Lindey's has become one of our top choices for a special occasion. The food is top notch and the service is professional. It has a free valet service, which is great for its location in German Village. The cocktails are very creative (I had one that incorporated red bell pepper in the mix, if you can believe it!) and the wine list is generous. Great ambiance too. All around a fantastic choice for that important meal!

                                                Food was good. Waiter was nice although he kept checking in with us in a very casual way. When we learned he was previously a bartender and just changed to a sever that made sense. He’ll be a great server

                                                The patio is absolutely gorgeous! The fountains, flowers, plants, trees, and views were definitely the best part of our experience. I ordered 2 different drinks of which they were out of ingredients. I then ordered an appetizer that they were also out of. Needless to say I was disappointed. The food we did order was good- nothing great. The service was also okay- nothing great. If I go back, it will be for the gorgeous patio setting!

                                                The menu hasn't changed in years and the food is getting worse each time I visit. We go for the patio but had to sit inside due to the wait outside and the decor is dated. They were sold out of almost everything we ordered and did not proactively let us know what was nixed from the menu until we ordered. The price is not worth what is delivered, and it is quickly becoming a place I don't think I will continue to visit.

                                                Great food and beautiful patio. Server was very very rude, barely acknowledged us, never told us about the menu. We ordered two appetizers, one came before drinks. I ordered a salad with fish, but came with wrong fish on it (salmon not shrimp), also asked for no nuts and salad came with nuts on, server did not care one bit when I brought this up. She gave us our check without even asking if we wanted anything else.

                                                Pure class from this establishment. Servers are welcoming and helpful to walk through the menu for drinks and any food item from soup, apps, entrees. The lobster bisque is delightful, the tuna tartare was refreshing, and the lamb/tournedo filet's were very flavorful although they were cooked a little too well for medium rare. All in all it's a 9.4/10 - if you're in Columbus, go here.

                                                We were placed by the door next to the entry way. That location is not prime for an enjoyable Lindsey ambiance. It was a table for four but should have been a table for two. The table would have been best placed against the window with seating in two sides. This would allow the guests to enjoy the food without the tenacious intrusion of their space. We had people brushing our table most of the evening. At one point, we had a guest resting on our table. The best thing lindeys could do is to take the table away allowing space for people to wait to be seated. This would be ideal. I was quite disappointed with this experience.

                                                We had been told we had a good chance for outside seating, which for health reasons was our preference. But upon arrival (20 minutes early) we were told the patio was closed. It was the day for planting outdoor spaces. Had we been notified, our party of four would have made other plans. Two people had driven from Cincinnati, so we bit the bullet and ate indoors.

                                                The good...beautiful, electric ambience. Constant motion. Food servers focused on their delivery. Steak frites was cooked perfectly. The bad...our waitress was at the table almost the second we sat down ready to take our drink order. We hadn't even looked at the menu. She came back eventually and took our drink and dinner order. There we waited for 15 minutes for 2 glasses of wine from a bar that was 30 ft away. Salad came out and I asked the salad server to find our server and our wine. He did. Finally she appeared with the wines and offered the obligatory apology without a reason why. Dinner went as planned from then on. Bill was presented and the server then closely hung around, somewhat ridiculous the table until we paid. Once we got up to leave, quickly grabbed the bill folder. Proof to us that one server can effect the whole experience.

                                                We had the perfect weather for outdoor dining and the perfect setting as well. The patio is shaded and the tables also have umbrellas, which also help keep the setting comfortable. The wait staff was very professional, bringing water, drinks, bread basket and our food at just the right moments. The quality of the food was exceptional as well. Overall, a wonderful place for an outdoor lunch with friends or family.

                                                We go to Lindeys all the time. We went tonight for our anniversary & it was so disappointing. Poor service.
