We always have a fantastic experience when we dine at Lindey’s. Lunch was very good, we love the salmon salads and the soups are always delicious. The German Village experience cannot be missed and you will not be disappointed.

I was a little disappointed in my experience because I've heard such great things. I went with a group of 7 girlfriends expecting the best, but our waitress seemed really frustrated and kept getting our orders and checks wrong. She let us know she was sorry and that she'd been working since 9:00am and it was almost 9:00pm at that point. The atmosphere was amazing, but I couldn't help but be a little let down because of our server. I think I'll go back again with a smaller group.

We enjoyed the evening very much. Glad we got there early. Mid-way through the meal the dining room filled up and we could not hear our own conversation. May I suggest some tectum panels to decrease the reverberating noise.

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.

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.
