The Green Gateau is an upper-scale neighborhood restaurant that has been in operation for over 25 years in the heart of downtown Lincoln. We have combined a European atmosphere with American contemporary cuisine to create a casual, yet refined feeling with delicious flavors.

Owners Eric and Cristi are proud to serve their award winning desserts, fresh seafood, and Nebraska Wagyu beef. This is just a fraction of the comprehensive menu that is sure to satisfy. We are also proud to source local and organic produce, dairy, meat, and wine.

The Green Gateau is a consistent winner of Lincoln's Choice 'Best Brunch', and offers brunch from 8-3 on both Saturday and Sunday.

The Green Gateau boasts one of the most comprehensive wine selections in Nebraska, and is annually voted a Wine Spectator Award of Excellence winner.

    Everything was fine..breakfast “slam” was only one egg, one piece of French toast, and two small pieces of beacon.. so didn’t quite live up to its name..? We had new waitress who was a bit forgetful and unorganized.. but very attentive, kind, and eager to please…so that more than made up for it.. and though we made reservation, still had to wait about 20 mins. to be seated..?

    Great food. Waitress was a nice person but rarely checked with us to see if we wanted another drink. And when ordering our first drink to receiving the drink it always takes a long time. You wonder if they forgot about your drink. That tends to be the case whether the restaurant is busy or not busy.

    Dined for dinner and had an excellent time. Service was professional and we enjoyed our server, Noah, quite a bit. He was busy but made us feel at home and even made our crème brûlée at our table! The dishes are always excellent, pasta Gorgonzola is a favorite of mine, and the desserts are some of Lincoln’s best. Will definitely return.

    Green GateauResponded on September 29, 2022Alejandro, Thank you for the review and the kind words. We'll let Noah know he's doing a great job! Regards, Jackson Green Gateau

    Can’t believe this restaurant has good reviews on trip advisor. Very disappointing. The salmon was horrible. Our poor waiter was untrained. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone.

    Green GateauResponded on September 22, 2022Mona, Thank you for your review. We strive for excellent experiences and we're sorry to hear you didn't have one! We were fully booked that weekend due to the Oklahoma game in town and everyone was operating at full steam, but that's no excuse for not taking care of you! Please come back again and let us show you the type of service we like to offer. Regards, JacksonJ Green Gateau

    We made reservations well in advance of a Friday night to celebrate our anniversary. We were brought to the very back of the restaurant in a separate rooms way from everyone. Very cold and dark. Ask to move but they said there was no room but open tables through out. Service was ok not great. We had steak both asked for med rare. One over cooked and one was cooked perfectly. Steak was tender. Trout special was fishy and had tough skin on top and extremely overcooked. Could barely eat it. Crème brûlée was table side and no flavor. Will not be back.

    Jada was outstanding as our server; she was attentive to our requests, patient when one of us was delayed in arriving, and informative with her drink and menu recommendations. The lunches my two friends and I had were excellent -- precisely prepared, beautifully seasoned, and served at ideal temperatures. And GG is giving Shucks serious competition with absolutely delicious, tender, gorgeously sauced calamari.

    I had the lobster bisque and seafood fettuccine. The bisque was fair, too thick, not particularly flavorful or lobstery (if that’s a word). The seafood fettuccine was worse, especially considering it’s made using the lobster bisque as a sauce. Perhaps the bigger problem was the clumped fettuccine noodles. And I’d say maybe it was just my dish, but my dining partner mentioned today his fettuccine was clumped together too, so it’s obvious there’s a lack of quality control in the kitchen. I was surprised at the extensive menu. Maybe they are trying to do too much?

    It was a busy morning, but our waitress did not do well. She forgot our waters until we were almost done with our food. She also got the food wrong for 3 out of the 4 people. The hash browns weren’t cooking, the eggs Florentine had hard boiled eggs instead of eggs that were over easy. Also, my daughter is gluten and dairy free. She ordered the French onion soup with no cheese or bread. It came filled with croutons. We have eaten here many times and this was the first time it was such a disappointment.

    Celebrating our anniversary. The first thing our server said was Happy Anniversary. The desert we ordered came out on a platter with Happy Anniversary spelled out in bright red frosting. Our server was super friendly and very knowledgeable about menus items and wine selections. What we ordered was promptly delivered and the selections we made were outstanding and delicious. Dessert selections were impressive and what we ordered were great. A great restaurant for special occasions, but also a great go to place for excellent, food, service and relaxing atmosphere. Maybe a “Just Because” occasion!!

    Green GateauResponded on August 25, 2022Harold, Congrats on your anniversary! We're glad you chose us to celebrate with. Our server do their research and try to make every experience special and I'm glad that comes through! See you next time. Jackson Jarvis Green Gateau

    Atmosphere was quiet and quaint. We were greeted and sat immediately. Lilly took wonderful care of us and the food was amazing. Who knew a place like this existed in middle America. Reasonably priced too. Cannot believe we had an appetizer, drinks, meal and dessert and were out of the under $100. Cannot say that about too many restaurants. Will definitely come back the next time we are in Lincoln.
