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.

My daughters 9th birthday. We made the waiter aware and hey did bring her a dessert with a candle at my request.... however she did not receive her dessert in the house for her birthday, which surprised me.

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.

The restaurant is just lovely. The Bar area is beautiful. The service was excellent. The food is wonderful. The noise level was around our table made for difficult conversation. However, I realize we’re was a large party near by.

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.

Lindey’s set the standard for fine dining. The food is consistently first rate and the service is exceptional. Tonight we celebrated our daughter’s birthday at her favorite restaurant and we were not disappointed... we had a wonderful time from fine service (by Britna and a host of assistants) to perfectly prepared food and creative drinks.

Lindey's came highly recommended and exceeded expectations. We were in Columbus for the Women's Final Four and were told this was the place to go. We were unable to get an Easter brunch reservation and decided to take a 430 reservation on Saturday just to try it out and we were certainly not at all disappointed. Great food. Easily the best meal in Columbus. Highly recommend. Brian R Calgary, Alberta

As always the food and service at Lindey's was great. Although they seated us promptly, they were unable to locate our reservation made through Open Table. I had the confirmation on my phone but they could not locate the record. I suggest if your reservation is during a busy time, you call and reconfirm with the restaurant.
