The chicken was undercooked and it seemed like they just took it back and microwaved it. Overall decent experience otherwise.

The carpaccio and bisque were delicious, as always. The steak frites sauce was very good but my steak was rare vs med rare, which I still ate most but my husbands lamb was seared and that was it, raw on the inside not just middle. He would not eat it and was not comfortable sending it back. We spend our anniversary there every year and this was disappointing to the point where we are not planning on going back next year.

we ate outside and the atmosphere was pleasant. The service was very good for our dinner, but it took 25 minutes to get the dessert. The food was good but not hot. we had a very nice time.

We love Lindey’s - it’s our favorite restaurant! It’s a one of a kind restaurant in Columbus and fits perfectly in the German Village neighborhood. Great food and great service in an inviting yet intimate atmosphere.

I go out to dine a lot.One of the two top dinners I have had in Columbus in the past 2 years. The lobster bisque was fabulous and the beef filet was astounding.

The patio is always a treat. We were especially thrilled that even with the recent rain, the staff hustled to prepare dry tables for their guests.

Didn't have the best experience, but the location & ambiance (outdoors) were really great. I would end up recommending this place to a friend as the service gaffes and food were mistakes that can be corrected. They did promptly acknowledge the issues and go the extra mile by comping a round of drinks.

Beer selection was poor.

Lindey's patio is gorgeous and is a perfect spot for a romantic dinner date or a dinner with a family! The staff is very friendly and the location is in the incredible German Village! It is a perfect fit for the area! The food is incredible! I got the lamb and I highly recommend!

We reserved a table for 2:30pm and requested to be seated outside. We were informed that outside seating is on a first come - first serve basis, so we would need to come in-person to reserve a spot for outside. We arrived an hour before our indoor reservation to put our names down for outside then walked around the town. Come 2:30pm, we were seated inside just to get a phone call 5 minutes after placing our drink orders that our outdoor table was open. Thankfully, our waitress didn’t mind that we were moving to the patio but the hostess seemed to be annoyed with us. The hostess asked us to close out our tab indoors before going to the back and our waitress told us that wasn’t necessary since she was able to transfer our drinks over. Basically, the whole indoor/outdoor systems seems to be a mess, BUT we were really happy with the food and outdoor experience.

We were there both Saturday evening and Sunday for brunch. Quality isn’t as good as in the past (our last visit was right before COVOD shut down). Brunch food was salty, ham wasn’t shaved but thickly sliced on the eggs Benedict...why the change? Also, looked like it had been sitting in the window longer than it should. My wife also got fruit with her and I didn’t receive mine. Server also forgot my soup. As a F&B manager as well in know consistency can be a struggle at times but it is just not something you’d expect to flounder at Lindey’s, especially for the price.

I ordered Eggs Lindey's which is supposed to have soft poached eggs topped with Hollandaise sauce. When it arrived the eggs were completely cooked. I requested new eggs. My plate was left to get cold and it took at least 15 minutes to get properly cooked eggs. By that time my dining companions had finished their meals. No recompense was offered and I was very disappointed in my experience.

Back in the day, Lindeys was an outstanding restaurant, expensive, but worth it. This visit was a disappointment. The quality of the ingredients was poor, and the flavors of the dishes average. The service was adequate, but not outstanding. This is not the Lindeys I remember.
