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.

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.

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

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.

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.
