I should eat more fish. I would eat more fish if I could eat fish from Linwood's every day. I know Salmon is really really good for you. But most places Salmon is prepared it's "eat to live" quality. Boring.

New to me on the menu at Linwood's is a sweet chili glazed Salmon. It's not too sweet and just a light spice. It was perfectly cooked with some crunchy vegtables and wasabi peas. I started with the spring pea salad with parmesan also good for you! (Well, the pea salad did have some BACON!)

My lunch companion had a classic gazpacho with crabmeat.

The food was spectacular, and it was full of vegtables and proteins that are actually good for you. At Linwood's you can live to eat and still be healthy!

If a restaurant can deliver on Mother's Day, one of the busiest restaurant days of the year, it can deliver every day. And Linwoods does just that. The restaurant was full and tables were changing regularly. The menu was more limited than usual. The food was still excellent. There was no rush to complete the meal and each course was served at a good pace. We started with the Maryland crab soup, very flavorful and with lots of crab. The asparagus salad is beautifully presented and delicious. Linwoods know how to do fish. The bronzini has a new presentation with a good grain base. The recent sweet chili prep on the salmon is excellent. The blueberry tart with ice cream is a great finish. Ask for extra berries :) All in all a lovely evening

Had the crab cake, not good. Too much filler and not enough taste. Fritts we're limp. Usually the food here is quite good. Don't know if it was the holiday (Mother's day) but my food was off. My wife enjoyed her meal (Salmon), but didn't care for the table, it was a corner booth, odd seating.

The food was fair to bad. The lobster tempura was raw and when they sent it back, it came out raw again. My husband ordered tuna tartare for an appetizer and then they served it to him again for dinner. My food was not good and nobody ate at the same time.

The service was horrible!

We complained and they did not charge us which was the right thing to do. I have been going to Linwoods since they opened but lately the food has not been good.

I will never go back.

For some reason the food wasn’t as good as my previous visits, and the waiter was less than attentive. I’m not sure if it was due to the holiday (Mother’s Day) but this visit was underwhelming.

Linwoods was perfect from beginning to end, literally. While my friend parked the car I went into the restaurant. I use a Walker. As soon as I began opening the door two people from behind the front desk ran over to hold the door. The restaurant is beautiful. I ordered a martini. I was in the mood for a gin that I had never had before. Our waiter made a recommendation, and the martini tasted exactly as she said it would. I now have a new favorite gin! The meal was beyond delicious, and it was reasonably priced too. Great food, drinks, wines-by-the-glass, service, décor. Linwoods has it all!

Linwoods is a respite for those tired of over-hyped "4 & 5 star" restaurant experiences in the area.

We had a recent lunch there. Our waitress, Claudia, was exceptional. Spot on with food recommendations, great touch when checking in with us. Although the food was great (Cesar salad, freshly prepared salmon, veggies, tomato bisque, tuna tar tare, traditional ice cream sundae) she really made the meal light and fun for us. Well done.

Excellent service & food....again & again.
Never had a bad meal or poor service.
Not the cheapest, but ingredients are excellent.
Fresh Pea salad was recommended by our server Holly.
Very good. She was on point.

Our dinner night with friends was an excellent affair at Linwood’s. Excellent table in quiet section as requested, excellent wait service by Jeff, whose has been mentioned before and excellent food dishes of surprising, creative appetizers, plus main courses of fillets, duck and scallops. Skipped deserts and settled on very good coffee and cappochinos. Pretty close to a 10!!

Linwoods is the place to eat! There are a couple of new items on the menu. If you like artichokes, don't miss the new steamed artichoke appetizer! Very good! The spring asparagus salad is excellent, lots of layered flavors. The new halibut preparation marries the tartness of tomatina with the sweetness of a corn rice risotto. The dish is light for the warmer temps of spring. The lemon curd in the lemon tart is also bright with flavors. As always, Linwoods cocktails are the best! NO cheating there at all

The 5 minute crispy egg appetizer was a highlight for our lunch. We also enjoyed the expertly prepared tilapia with crab imperial and the shrimp and grits. My strawberry rose cocktail was refreshing. Our waiter Ben did a great job explaining the dishes and the cocktail, and his service was friendly and impeccable.

Still the best in the business! Some neat new items on the menu. The artichoke appetizer is beautiful to see, fun to eat and delicious. What more could you ask? Not sure how long the crispy oysters will be around but they are really, really good and I will be sad when they go. The lentil soup was not just flavorful but the flavor was layered which is great in a soup. I just love the new salmon prep. I love salmon and am sometimes disappointed in the prep. This sweet chili glaze kicks it out of the ballpark. I didn't get the wasabi peas that are on the menu because i am not a big fan of super hot. Because Linwoods wants happy diners, I could have garlic mashed potatoes. Great meal, great cocktails, wrapped up with a bowl of fresh berries and warm chocolate sauce. Great way to enjoy a Saturday night

Everything about our dinner for two was delightful! Our food was delicious! We each ordered an appetizer, both were appealing and inventive. Clever chefs!
We shared one entree (no extra charge) which was plenty of food for us.
And, oh, the Manhattan that I drank was superb!
Our waiter, Alex, was courteous and professional and pleasant. Just right!
We want to go back again, as our dinner Thurs
day night was perfect in every way.
