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.

    Nice atmosphere for a special occasion. In the quiet side but not pretentious. Beignets are a must try. Delicious. I’ve only had breakfast items but am going for macaroni and cheese next time.

    I made a lunch reservation for a friend’s birthday and mentioned it was a birthday on the reservation. When the six of us showed up today, they seated us in our own little private room! Ben was our server and he was patient (a couple ladies were late coming from work) and the drinks (for those of us not working) were great. Our food order came out timely, and everything tasted delicious! Highly recommend for your next get together!!

    We had a great meal. Thank you!! Everything from start to finish was perfect. Food, Service etc. We were lucky enough to be seated in the private room. Everyone in our group really enjoyed it and felt like cost was very reasonable for quality of food/ingredients. Presentation of the food was also beautiful. We will definitely be back very soon!!

    My friend and I had brunch there today. It was very busy but we had made our reservation so I wasn't worried. My friend and I had just finished up eating and were enjoying our beverages still when the waitress came up and asked us to leave. I was stunned. I asked her why? She said it was better coming from her than the manager Alex but that they were super busy so we needed to leave. I am 54 years old and this is the first time this has ever happened in my entire life. Soooooo disappointing. Honestly not sure I will be back.

    Excellent experience from the front door, to the dining area. Greeting was formal but friendly. The waitress was very informative and answered all our questions and gave us time to choose what foods we wanted to eat. Very enjoyable experience and we are planning on eating there again. Thank you for a wonderful evening!🤓

    The food was absolutely delicious! We were in the back room where there were 4 tables so it was quiet, which was nice. We went on a Sunday at 12:30. They were very busy and we received our food in a very timely manner. The service was wonderful!

    Green GateauResponded on January 18, 2023Becky, Thank you for the review! Glad you had a great time on Sunday. They are very busy for us but we still strive to maintain the same level of excellence as always! Regards, Jackson Green Gateau

    After a hiatus caused by pandemic we were pleased to experience the Green Gateau again. NYE was sure to be crowded but we never felt uncomfortable. The food was hot when expected, cold when required. We should have started with dessert for maximum enjoyment but c’est la vie.

We had drinks, soup, their brussel sprouts as an appetizer, beef wellington with whipped potatoes and asparagus, two types of dessert and everything was cooked to perfection!! We will absolutely be going again in the future.

    I would have given more stars but we felt rushed and singled out. One lady, not sure if she was a hostess or manager because she Never introduced herself, kept coming to our table asking were we done with the menus, then our appetizer plates that we hadn't even used yet. Then our dinner plates. There were other tables and people with menus and plates but she didn't bother them, only our table, only us. And this was our first time visiting this establishment. The food was good but not sure if we will be returning or recommend for this reason.

    Food was bland this time around. Potato Pancakes no different than the hash browns. Disappointing. Waiter was uninspiring. Could care less about service. Sat for 10 minutes before he brought back the check with my credit card swiped. Something must have changed with this restaurant over the past year.

    The fondue (a dip really) appetizer was amazing! The steak, chxn & veggies were all delicious and the banana chocolate cake was divine! The environment had great ambiance for our early Christmas dinner. 1st time there & can't wait to go back! Note- parking is awful if full on the South side of the building but we did find that there is another parking lot attached to the Southeast that was not as full & much easier to navigate.

    We had not been there in several years because Sundays are hectic so we don't usually make plans/reservations in advance. it was very busy. We arrived and waited about 10 minutes to be seated. The menu has great variety and everything that servers brought out looked great. We recommend beignets with lemon. Husband had breakfast with eggs, bacon and I had a sandwich. It was all great!

    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 :)
