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.

    Green Goteau is simply wonderful. Atmosphere, service and meal were all great. The Eggs Oscar and Cordon Bleu Crepes are delicious. Our server George was so nice and attentive. George is an asset to Green Goteau. Green Goteau has become our go to destination.

    Have heard numerous things about GG. We went and wasn't overly impressed, very dated decor. We sat in the very front of the restaurant and it was so loud, it was hard to hear conversation at our table. When using the restroom, noticed the back was much quieter. Our food wasn't the greatest. I ordered eggs benedict and the muffin was very hard and hard to cut. The hash-browns were cooked on outside but cold inside. When asked if we could have both strawberry and lemon toppings for the beignets, no mention of extra charge to do that. $47 for two breakfasts, seemed a lot. The service was outstanding!! I don't think we'd go back, but wouldn't say someone else wouldn't enjoy. It's a place where a lot of college kids and their families visit.

    Had a reservation - was seated in one of the two tables that are actually in the main hallway -- even though there was a perfect table in the corner by the window -- that prize table was saved - for about a half hour -- for some other special type of reservation. Oh well, if the food is great -- it will be worth sitting in the hallway. Food arrives -- well presented -- but the star of the show on my plate -- was a dry and tough pork chop. Enough -- I will not be back to this place again -- there are plenty of alternatives in Lincoln.

    Rotating menu sometimes works out great but can be left without great choices. The food is good. That’s it. But the restaurant itself is nice and the staff is knowledgeable. Fun to go one time, but in general save your money if you’re just looking for a meal.

    Green Gateau is a favorite for us. Each dish is prepared with great care and the standards seem to be very high for what is delivered to the table. Wait staff is courteous and not intrusive. Also, the drinks are always quite well made. We're big fans.

    Outstanding, as always. Varied menu, with excellent salads, soups, sandwiches, entrees, and desserts. The three of us ordered three different things, all were delicious. Service was attentive, food came quickly, which we appreciate at lunch time. One of our favorite restaurants in Lincoln for lunch and for dinner, we return again and again.
