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.

    Our dinner was absolutely fantastic and the service was amazing. Our server did a great job explaining the specials, the wine features, the gift card promotion and desserts. My family had been here before but it was my first time and I will definitely be back. Please keep up the great work.

    This restaurant is cozy with unique menu items..I unfortunately received my flatbread cold with only 2 very small pieces of chicken total...other 3 meals were wonderful! Did remove one star for that, and another due to very slow service even though many empty tables at the time...? Only second time dining here. I will definitely try again :)

    Wonderful food! Great atmosphere. Service was frustrating. We ordered an appetizer and split a pasta dish. We specially asked for the appetizer first. Both the appetizer and pasta dish came out at the same time! We felt rushed and our waiter was so rude.

    My only complaint was being seated at 11am for a 10:30 reservation. I asked if they would cancel my reservation if I was 15 minutes late and, of course, they would. They need to make fewer reservation times available if they are unable to meet demand. Food and server were excellent

    The place itself is very inviting and it was easy for us to converse. Both my boyfriend and I got a version of the Benedict and on each of our plates, one egg was poached well and the other was basically hard boiled. I notified my server, but nothing was done about it. For breakfast it was $75 for 3 of us, and only one had a mimosa. I probably would recommend it, because the place it cute and it looks like they have a nice dinner menu. Just for a place that is raved about for brunch, I was disappointed. Coffee was very tasty.

    As always a wonderful meal. The salmon and risotto was outstanding. We had 3 desserts and ate them all. We were seated in the front but I prefer to be further back in the restaurant (at least middle) as it’s quieter, one of the strong points of the Gateau.

    Fresh and creative food with incredible service. We went for breakfast two days in a row while in town visiting. The Cordon Bleu crepes were super cheesy and just the right amount of ham with asparagus on top. If you are an early bird (8-9 am) the French slam is an incredible deal with quality food.
