We were there on Friday night of Pride weekend. We had a reservation at 4:00. There was already a line for the elevator when we got there. I do feel that the line should be separated for those with reservations and without. We really loved the rooftop. It is such an amazing setting. My only complaint was with the service. We were a party of six and ordered a bunch of things off the menu. Two of those things never arrived. After an hour or so, I asked about them and it appears they were just forgotten, I am not sure by who. Also, I ordered a drink that never came and I had to ask for it twice again before it arrived. I am hopeful that these shortcoming in service were due to the weekend and I am willing to get Lincoln Social another chance. That view makes everything worth it!

I love this place! My new favorite restaurant. I wish they gave you slightly bigger portions I’d pay a little more for a bigger portion. But everything else about Lincoln Social is on point! Two thumbs up!!! Way up!!!

I was there to start off birthday celebrations for my 50th. Crowd was SUPER young and it was VERY loud. I get it, it's very new, so that was to be expected. There was a long line waiting through the entire lobby and outside, so thankfully I had reservations and got to go immediately upstairs and the hostess was there at the door to take us to our table with no wait. It would've been nice if there was a dress code enforced-some of those youngins were SO under dressed to the point they looked homeless and dirty, not to mention a few of them were super drunk and it was only 6pm - both of which were NOT a good look for the restaurant-it totally killed the vibe and atmosphere and overall look of the place. Had more of a "club" feel to it, rather than an upscale restaurant. The appetizers were good, but the cocktail drink glasses were super tiny at regular prices, so that was a downside, but overall, once the hype dies down, I'd love to try it again.

WOW!!! At least for the view and the ambiance. Also want to thank them for holding my 6:30 rez that I had made 2 months prior til 7...so wonderful of them. I had the Tuna Poke and my friend had the Shimp Cheviche both of which were good, but small. I understand the Tapas concept...but no one is sharing this portion. Good mix of ages the Wed night we went. Definitely will be back...Columbus only has one other spot that rivals this (so far) as rooftops go...and LS has a much better vibe!

Was a little disappointed that we had a reservation and it still took 30 minutes before we ever saw a server to get drinks. But overall it is a GREAT place and the weather was beautiful so everything was opened up! Nice place!!!

The noise level increased as the evening progressed.

Also, they’ve removed the ability to make reservations, unless u hv a large party to book a booth. I would not return and stand in line.

Beautiful space. Unfortunately the vibe seems to be trying to hard to be LA snobby. The elevator entrance situation is also a little cold and bizarre. Should be more of a lounge with cocktail service.

Not worth it, food sucks and the drinks suck as well... just the place is pretty, everything on the menu is terrible and tasteless.

Great place to people watch. Limited food menu but good drinks. The view is great but it can get noisy when the windows are closed.

Loved the interior and amazing panoramic views...but the noise level was almost unbearable. The food was wonderful and staff were friendly. We would go back on a weekday.

Great atmosphere, just needs more space in the fire pit/outdoor area for this to be the only rooftop of it's kind in the downtown area. The food was great. Maybe add crab or lobster bisque. Chicken wing options, similar to Juniper Rooftop menu. Add one more TV in a different location, but near the bar area still.

Great atmosphere but food was nothing special at all, definitely not the food quality I’ve come to expect from a CM restaurant.

The food is way too expensive. The drinks are really good, but come at a high price. I would go back but wouldn't eat again
