An outstanding waiter made up for the fact that they were out of the Mushroom Soup that our cranky friend who's birthday (84) we were celabrating wanted to come for that reason . Food was outstanding (as usual)

We went to Lindey's for our Anniversary. First of all, they offer complimentary valet, which is a plus in German Village. The hostess was friendly from the start and the manager seated us, wished us a Happy Anniversary, and offered coat check. Our waitress was great! She offered a variety of drinks, items of the day, and was also very friendly. Our food was delicious! We had lobster bisque and a wedge salad, followed by a filet and lamb. Our dessert was also delicious! All was great! We plan to return in the future!

The reviews on Lindeys were great. We planned to celebrate with my daughter on her birthday and had a reservation for 5:00 on Sunday. The atmosphere was great and they had a nice old bar which was beautiful. I order the special which was halibut with mussels. The halibut was good and prepared nicely. The mussels were fishy and didn't have a lot of flavor. My wife ordered lobster risotto. It was really bland and sticky. She said it didn't have any flavor. My daughter ordered the pork chop which was very good and one of their specialties. It was a very large portion and 1 1/2-2" thick pork chop. My daughter finished all but about 1-1 1/2" off the bone. I cut the meat off the bone to take home but it was completely raw!! The portion that my daughter did eat was cooked and it tasted delicious. My daughter asked that I not say anything and didn't want me to talk to the manager. I did however display the raw meat on her plate so our server could easily see the meat. He didn't say anything. Overall, I would say the prices are very reasonable but the food lacked attention. I'm sure if I returned, I could have a completely positive experience. The restaurant didn't appear busy but they turned away at least 2 or 3 parties that didn't have reservations. It's possible that they had 6:30 or 7:00 reservations. If I'm in the area, I would give Lindeys another chance.

The steak was cold and rare when I specifically mentioned twice for it to be medium rare. The linguine was delicious. Food came out very fast.

Vibrant restaurant! Very nice ambiance, comfortable, attentive service and a great meal. It was bustling on a Saturday night, but we were seated immediately upon arrival at a very nice corner table. We had the scallops, torchio and linguine pasta dishes. All were delicious. Definitely coming back to dine outside in the courtyard and try more menu items!

My wife and celebrated our five year wedding anniversary on Saturday 4/21 and we always go to Lindey’s for our special occasions. Our server Sam (Samantha on the receipt) was the epitome of perfection. She was kind, attentive, knowledgeable about the menu, and went above and beyond to make our special day that much more special. It is people like Sam that will continually make Lindey’s THE BEST RESTAURANT IN THE CITY. The food portion and plating is always stellar, and everything was delicious. My wife and I will continue to be repeat customers as we have have never had a negative experience and the staff is just superb.

When in Columbus, a visit to German Village makes for a mellow couple of hours of shopping and sight seeing. Lindy's makes good, classy food and makes it well. The service is impeccable, and friendly. It would be a great place to visit for special occasions or just before a game down town, just a short drive away.
Many fine dining establishments feel stuffy, but here feels like family, like it would be your go to restaurant if you lived in the area.
A charming place, well worth a visit.

The service was bad. The lobster and shrimp risotto was good but pricy ($25).
My husband ordered a well done burger and it turned out barely cooked and hurt his stomach.
The manager offer a whole new well done burger and that was nice. No body apologized though.
Bathrooms are very clean and nice.
They played CNN there.
The have demon heads on their ceiling light.

We were celebrating 3 birthdays with Sunday brunch and everything was perfect. Our server, Dillan, made our day as he was kind, sincere, attentive and pleasant. The food was outstanding, as usual, and the ambiance perfect. We even had 3 children, ages 4-10, and they were entertained with coloring menus and food they liked. Lindey’s will never disappoint!

As short term visitors to Columbus (April 14-16),
we selected Lindeys especially because of my husband's fondness for its rotesserie chicken which proved to be very, very good!
Our reservation was for 8:30 and we were shown to our table immediately upon arrival.
The 15th was also my husbands birthday and we appreciated a corner table in the back room with less noise AND the free dessert.
On the negative side, the service was a bit slow in the beginning but eventually it caught up to speed.
All in all, a nice way for out of towners to celebrate a special occasion.

Poor service (slow, robotic), food not prepared as ordered (raw is not medium rare). Lindey's came highly recommended, but turned out to be an overall disapointment. Plenty of GREAT choices for steaks elsewhere in Columbus. Pass on this place.

We ate at Lindey's pre-concert, and didn't have time for dessert, so can't comment on that! However, all 4 of us enjoyed our appetizers very much: Italian wedding soup, lobster bisque, and pot-stickers started off our meal. One member of our party had the hamburger and fries, which he said was quite good. The rest of us had the walleye special, which sounded delicious as described but, while good, wasn't nearly as great as we had expected. The fish wasn't as flaky as other walleye we had and could have used an extra dollop of the accompanying aioli (which was quite tasty). The roasted potatoes, haricots verts, and asparagus were nice, but unremarkable. I've had terrific meals here in the past, so left a little disappointed this time. But I'm certainly willing to return, as I assume this is not the new normal!

Our waitress was warm, friendly, and attentive without hovering, and she respected our need to be on our way by a certain time.

The Steak Frites was great! The day's special, a mahi, was pretty good just not as great as my hubby's steak! The service was great getting us in and out in a timely manner before the symphony. When I asked for a red blend, a wonderful french wine was brought! We have heard many good reports for many years and now we are eager to return.
