    Arrived at 11:55 and all tables on the patio were full, so had to eat lunch inside. I waited a few minutes for somebody to acknowledge me, and the wine I chose was out of stock. They substituted a similar wine at the same price. Lunch was good, but not as spectacular as usual. I think it was just a bad day for lunch.

    Restaurant was on the chilly side. We were seated near the kitchen. So not a great table. Waitress was great but the bar service was slow. Food and drink was awesome.

    Very loud. Food was good but waited a long time for it. No bread/flatbread that I love and usually have at Lindey’s. Bar service was very slow. Hoping this was just an off day because we used to go here a lot. Won’t be back for awhile.

    We had a delicious dinner, choosing the sea bass and the pork chop. Both were very well prepared, as were the sides. The key lime pie was light, but flavorful. Our server was attentive and added a special touch for our anniversary celebration.

    If you want to be absolutely sure when you head out for dinner in Columbus that the food will be great, the atmosphere will be perfect, and the service will be top-notch - just make a reservation at Lindey's - you can't go wrong.

    I took a co-worker to Lindey's to celebrate her retirement and have no complaints. While I wished I had asked for a new table (the one we sat at was right near the short stairwell) it did not create a problem for us or the waitstaff. I have been to this restaurant on several occasions and have never been disappointed.

    Service was good but the food was very average and very expensive for average food. I hate the inside of the place wow. Chairs are insanely uncomfortable and the tables are super close together everything is just really old, small, and uncomfortable. I truly do not understand they hype about this place.

    Lindeys is one of my favorite restaurants but what a disappointment this turned out to be. The restaurant was half empty yet our party of 6 was sat at a stairwell. Service was slow, food all came out cold, staff was very inattentive. It was an uncomfortable experience. Lastly, as I’m walking out of the restaurant holding a car seat with baby escorting 2 elderly parents, both hostesses could not bother putting their phones down to open the door. Not a policy thing, just rude.

    We waited at the hostess stand while the young woman took a reservation on the phone and then engaged in long conservation. Another hostess from the back patio came to help her and men put us at the worst table. It was tight, loud and in the pathway of wait staff and people coming from one area to another section. The waiter was mediocre with no attention to detail. Food selection and quality of food was not good. Been coming here for years and was quite disappointed. Will not recommend or be back . Would like to eat outside but not willing to show up at 3 pm for dinner.

    We spent a lot of money, and tipped well over 20 percent. We wanted to finish outside, with drinks we already purchased. Just wanted to check the patio out. Staff out there could not have been more rude and unwelcoming. What was a good experience, turned sour fast. I am a good blogger, and reviewer from Chicago, and the end of the night ruined our evening. Never coming back to Columbus again.
