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.

    We had a very delicious dinner at the Green Gateau and a wonderful server. We have been there for Sunday brunch many times, which is also excellent. Sunday brunch is a busy, busy time for them. We plan to be back soon for dinner.

    What a superb restaurant that was an unexpected find in downtown Lincoln! The French onion soup was amazing and the beef Wellington was top notch, a special for the evening. Great value for the money! Service was attentive but not over bearing they let you enjoy the food. Definite must for anyone in the area.

    The staff was very good even with their hands full on Easter Sunday. It was noisy as you might expect on a day with a full house, our waiter was efficient and friendly, our food arrived quicker I expected and was very good. All in all our lunch was a pleasant experience, which is what we expected.
