Attentive service. Delicious food. Reasonable price. Overall, a delightful meal. The main room is very loud. They seated us in a quieter room on request, it is was much better, but still on the side of loud. The food was amazing and every single person who helped us was friendly and right there when needed. I would absolutely go again, but would definitely want the smaller, quieter room.

Our waiter never returned to our table after taking our order. Other employees brought out our food which is appropriate however he never refilled our glasses, asked how our food was of if we needed anything. We had to ask for a manager just to get our check after being completely finished eating for about 20 min
Manager was nice & would not allow us to pay for our meal. I left feeling complete it’s horrible. I don’t like not paying for a meal that I ate. The food was really good.
I’m still just angered that the waiter walked by our table over & over and NEVER stopped!!

I come to Lincoln all the time and have for years. The service was terrible- someone tried to re-hand me my dirty silverware after it was taken away, and a server threw a napkin or towel over our table to another table. It took us 25 minutes to get drinks and 2.5 hours to finish our meal. There was techno music playing and some small plates instead of adult dinner. Not enjoyable at all.

Our waiter could not have been less interested. Looking out the window while describing the menu--it was like he was on autopilot; whisked away half eaten entrees--anxious to bring in the next party?; brought the wrong beer.
Burgers were overcooked (this is a kitchen problem, not wait staff).
Unable to split a check between two credit cards? Really?
Cannot recommend and will not be going back.

Liked the place and food. We got seated by the front door so it felt out in the open so we didn’t really feel the ambience of the place and then would get distracting when people came in, also a little cold when the door opened so wasn’t too happy about that. Good food and service though.

Nice atmosphere here. Good happy hour before dinner. Service was spotty - couldn't always get the server's attention. Dinner came right on the heels of the lone appetizer and there was a small gap in serving all three dinners. My food was good - scallops were nicely prepared. Service at end of meal was again slow. Not as great as my first dinner here but I will come back.

Excellent atmosphere, food fantastic. Small plates that were the perfect size for us. Salmon cooked perfectly, and they even made us a small side salad that was not on the menu. The only issue was the panna cotta. Totally flavorless, and we ordered something else to replace it. The waiter made us feel as if it was supposed to be this way, and almost chastised us. We have had this many times before, at other restaurants, and we usually enjoy that. We would definitely recommend this restaurant!

I especially enjoyed the shrimp and endive salad with arugula, grapefruit, and orange in a vinaigrette. Could have used a few more shrimp, though they were tasty.

The food was very good, not great, but commensurate with the pricing. The service was poor. Our server put one of the orders in incorrectly; that began a comedy of errors. That being said I would go back; mistakes do happen and I don’t feel it appropriate to condemn a restaurant on one unfortunate experience.

I had a very disappointing experience on Sunday for my 2:00pm reservation. The first thing the waiter said when we sat down was that we had 20 minutes to complete our meal and drinks, given the time of our reservation. Had I known I would be rushed through my meal and would not have an opportunity to enjoy the brunch beverages, I would have certainly chosen another restaurant. My suggestion for improvement would be to end your reservation times earlier if you cannot provide a customer with a standard two-hour max dining experience.

The service was amazing. The waitress was a lovely perso . Unfortunately The place was unbearably loud. You had to get screamy to be heard. The food was too fru-fru for my taste. The shrimp and grits were more like a shrimp grit soup, and there were no dessert options without fruit mixed in.

I met a friend for brunch at Lincoln. I didn’t realize there would be a live DJ, so it was hard to catch up. Menu was standard DC pricey, food lacked flavor, seasoning and interest. Probably would not return.

Food and service were average. If you are looking for a quiet spot for brunch this isn’t the place. The restaurant had a DJ who was playing very loud dance music. You couldn’t hear the people sitting next to you. Not exactly what I was expecting at 1030am.
