Service was good. Chicken and waffles was terrible. Music so loud at brunch that you can’t really have a conversation with those at your table.
I came to Lincoln for the first time for brunch and it was just an okay visit. The server was a bit rude and the food was basic and underwhelming. The ambiance is pretty nice, but that doesn’t make up for where it lacks. I won’t be visiting again. There are several outstanding restaurants in the city and unfortunately this one falls incredibly short.
Very delicious food
Good selection of food and drink
Very surprised with the high quality food. I had friends from out of town and they were impressed as well
The food is expensive and the portion is small………….
Food was not good
Moses was our server and was extremely fantastic and attentive.
Food was not prepared as requested. Waitresses were not attentive. Bacon was re-cooked and served after re-accomplishing my meal. I will not frequent this restaurant again.
Great Place for brunch. Wish the food was a little better
Great experience in DC on a short weekend trip. Super convenient location, great menu with variety of choices and food was good. We arrived on restaurant week, and we had a three course meal for a great value. Highly recommend for casual dining. Great service!
Would not recommend
Service was excellent. Food was good. I enjoyed the tomato and burrata salad very much.
Great neighborhood gem off Logan circle. Great food, friendly staff, interesting decor. Close to hotels & the sights. New favorite in DC
While Lincoln has a great atmosphere, I agree with Lina, the brunch food was just okay. The coffee was watery, the food could be better-seasoned, and the potatoes were reheated. Maybe I'm crabby because I didn't get my coffee fix, don't expect to be satisfied by the food.
I thought the $35 three course meal was ridiculously overpriced considering the portion size and quality. Much better restaurants in the area for sure.
Excellent Mac and cheese. Among the best in DC. Potato gnocchi was very very strange. Chopped olives, crispy onion strings on top. Yuck.
Super slow service, just average food.
Good was fantastic! Also loved the vibe and decor.
Came to Lincoln for restaurant week - food was good, but portions were very small. Even at the discounted rate, didn't seem worth the money. Great service all around and very attentive staff.
The 3 stars on the service was mainly because it took a while to get our food, specially considering it was week-day lunch. Our server was great and I would give her (as well as the other staff) 5 stars, but my guess was they were a bit short staffed and this is what made everything be a bit slow (if I did not have to go back to work it would not have been an issue :).
Service was subpar; our waiter became flustered, ended up walking out on his shift. There was only about 15 people in the entire restaurant.
We waited for more than an hour to find out that the waiter hadn’t even placed our order.
Fairly disappointed and will likely never return.
I met up with three long time friends at Lincoln and was so excited about their brunch since I experienced it pre pandemic. Their all you can eat brunch with mimosas are normally fantastic. I was disappointed this time to learn that their chicken and waffles was served with thigh meat. I’ve never been anywhere where they serve dark meat with chicken and waffles. Honestly I felt cheated and probably won’t be back for brunch unless they return to serving breast meat again.
We’ve come here from Fredericksburg Va. twice. The first time we just wanted to have a date/brunch and it was awesome. Bartender was very attentive, friendly and knowledgeable. The manager had a full conversation with us and was our reason for deciding to come back. Our second time was our anniversary brunch . Very very pleased. Both times we sat at the bar by choice. We had reservations but asked if we could sat at the bar and both times we were able to. We enjoyed the bar.
Delicious food, not enormous portions, fun atmosphere.
Overall my guest had a great time. Our waiter was very pleasant but my guest had to repeatedly ask for condiments to go with their buffet orders. No butter, syrup, or ketchup accompanied their meal. Dishes piled up on the table. When we received the bill we were overcharged for an extra buffet we did not have but the waiter quickly resolved the matter. The food was delicious as always. The shrimp and grits EXCELLENT!! The DJ was great! The hostesses were pleasant.
I love the decoration and the live dj. I just wish they still had the French toast sticks from a few years ago but the chicken from the chicken and waffles dish was amazing.
Loved it! The food was as good as we remembered from our visit several years ago.
Absolutely everything was delicious
Great ambiance and I may go back but neither myself or my friend really found what we ordered to be great. There was nothing wrong, but also nothing that I would crave again.
Brandi is the best! Outstanding customer service.
The food is inventive and the service outstanding. The servers know the menu and how each dish is prepared.
It’s a pleasure to dine here.
My daughter is a Lincoln fan and the manager gave us an informative tour of interesting things in the restaurant! She loved it!
They no longer bring the bottle to the table for bottles mimosas. The food was just okay. I used to love this spot, but I probably won't be back. It's not worth it
It was all good until I was bit up by mosquitoes outside. That part was horrible.
Service was great. Everyone was kind and accommodating. Food was delicious.
Moses was great! The food is consistently bomb, and I can’t wait to return!
Decent food and beautiful restaurant. Service was great but mimosas were weak!
Moses is the sweetest server ever
Great neighborhood hang! Loved the moonshine cocktail, kale salad and salmon grilled to perfection! Risotto was too cheesy, but my husband did not complain😂
