German Village is about a 20 min drive for us, so we hadn't been to Lindey's in some time. Just not quite convenient enough to stop in too frequently. But my wife and I decided to head there for brunch on a Saturday morning and we're glad we did. Lindey's is a beautiful space both inside and out. At first it seems rather small inside, until you notice how far back into other rooms the space actually stretches, and they also have a more private area upstairs for rent. There are large tables for groups, and smaller ones for more intimate meals. The service was impeccable from the opening of the front door, taking of our coats, and attentiveness throughout the meal. We split a French Press pot of coffee, and an order of beignets which were absolutely perfect. My wife had the omelet of the day, while I had the Eggs Benedict, and both were fantastic. Chef Max is a longtime friend of ours and he made a point to come out of the kitchen to greet us and check on our meals. Our overall experience was exceptional, and we'll definitely make a point to head back to German Village more frequently to dine at Lindey's again.

We had our daughter and her fiancé along with his parents in from out of town.
Her first choice of a restaurant was Lindey’s to show off Columbus’ restaurants.
Food was great, service was great
BUT, we had a party of 8 adults and a high chair and we were so crammed at a table that should have only had 6 people. We made obvious noise about our tightness but no one seemed to have a solution.
We’ve eaten at your restaurant many times and I know you have larger tables. Thank goodness the food and company were great because we were as tight as sardines!!

Lindey's is one of my favorite restaurants in Columbus. Great wine list, can't order a bad thing on the menu. The wait staff are all great - they come by just as much as you need them to, but not too much. Everything about this place is great. Even the building that it's in is a neat old place; you don't realize how big it is until they start taking you through all the rooms to be seated.

There's a reason why Lindey's is always at the top of the best restaurants in Columbus' list. Always good, consistent, delicious food with exceptional staff and service. The outside patio in the summer is the best in the city, for sure!

We had a very enjoyable evening, love Lindey’s and it will continue to be one of our favorites. Tonight’s service however was disappointing in several areas.

Our service was simply slow. No hurry what so ever yet it comes a point you wonder why you don’t have anything in front of you. The meal was not timed and paced as you would expect, it was simply slow. Drinks were 15+ min. Salads were 35+ min. Very drawn out. Dinner arrived shortly thereafter with a runner respectfully letting us know our meals were ready and asking if we would like them kept warm while we ate our salads?

The salads, SeaBass and the Ribeye were all perfectly prepared and simply as good as you will ever have. Every bite so delectable.

Aside from the slow start, there was a guest clearly intoxicated and loud becoming more obvious by the time we finished and she literally stumbled her way out the door (as her friend chased her down) but never any involvement from mgmt.

As we were leaving it was raining and there was a small line under the very small awning or with us in the now crowded vestibule waiting for the valet to bring cars around. We gave our ticket to the valet and waited perhaps 5 min, not long. But in hurrying out to our car found that the car had actually been turned off, locked and they couldn’t locate the keys because the other valet had hung them back up in the box. Really?!

Not the usual service we’ve come to appreciate and expect from Lindey’s

Had a reservation at 8pm. They told us they would seat us shortly. 30 minutes later we got seated. Not sure what our reservation did for us. Also the food was good but the portion size was small. You pay $30 for basically a snack. Not to mention they brought us a small bread basket after our entrees arrived. This place is honestly overrated and overpriced

I recently dined at Lindey's for a special occasion with my partner. The ambiance was very romantic and the food was delicious! We had Samantha as a server and she was extremely attentive! We never had to ask for anything, because she was so on top of everything all night! Would definitely recommend going again and would highly recommend Samantha as a server to anyone wanting to try the restaurant out. I had a great time!

Lindey's has been my favorite Columbus restaurant for nearly 15 years. We were early for our reservation, but we were able to be seated immediately. It took a little while for Dustin to come over and greet us and, even longer for the SA to drop ice waters.
My husband and I were coursing our dinner, so the initial delay didn't impact us too much. It was very obvious that Dustin had several tables in the bar area and on the first level up from the bar area and was doing his best to deliver the impeccable service for which Lindey's is known.
The food and cocktails were amazing, as was the wine. The best Lobster Bisque in the city can be found with you! We enjoyed our meals, (Crab Cake and Pork Chop--grilled perfectly, by the way), and left feeling completely satisfied with our experience.
You're the best, Lindey's. Can't wait to see you during patio season!

Had been once before during an OSU game so the restaurant was empty but food was fantastic. So we decided to go back - reservations are hard to come by but we managed to get one at 9. We showed up about 20 minutes expecting to grab a drink at the beautiful bar but our table was ready. The service was excellent, not intrusive at all but we also were never left waiting. Our food was wonderful - I had the lamb - was perfectly cooked and the accompaniments were delicious and didn't overpower the flavor of the lamb. We had an appetizer, each had soup (the french onion), entrees, a beer and a glass of good Cab and total was just over $100. I would have paid much more and been just as satisfied. The difficulty in getting a reservation is a testament to the quality of the place.

Met a couple of friends for Sunday brunch this past weekend and none of us had been there for at least 10 or more years! Our meals were incredible —> We ordered the Beignets and Carpaccio for the table and then I had the Crab Louie salad! (and I’m STILL thinking about it!) It really was amazing. The amount of fresh crab that they put into it was actually enough to fill me up even before I was finished. It was a lot of great food! Our drinks were made equally well which, let’s be honest, is always a nice side to any brunch! ;) We’d made reservations and didn’t need to wait at all for our table even though the restaurant was really busy. Last, our server was outstanding! He was extremely kind, helpful and patient but attentive. All an A+ and I’ll be back again soon!!
