Beautiful restaurant but extremely slow service. Steak was excellent, but vegetarian cauliflower steak was poor. It was ok overall but I’m not sure it was worth the money.

Everything we had was amazing. The melt-in-your-mouth wagyu steak was the highlight of the meal. The side portions are quite large, there was enough asparagus to feed a family of four, it was seasoned very well, such a shame it was just too much for the two of us! The bread pudding is certainly one to try. And both of our cocktails were put together quite nicely. Overall, it was a great dining experience through and through.

Probably the WORST restaurant among many upscale resort restaurants in Phoenix area. Mediocre food, incompetent table service, lousy decor and extremely poor acoustics (noisy). Camelback Inn should have a much better restaurant than this. In fact it did before Marriott bought the resort.

We dined with another couple on the occasion of a birthday and their anniversary.
The atmosphere was lovely and the noise level at a minimum.
Our server Samanda was sensational offering up suggestions after asking about our preferences.
We ordered appetizers, shared salads, & 4 entrees. The problem arose when the food began to arrive.
The fried lobster salad at $22 was so spicy we could not taste the lobster. There were red flakes in the dressing that burned our mouths. We had made sure to tell the server that we did not want any "hot" seasonings on any of the food. That request was ignored. The side dishes were also disappointing - fries came at room temperature, dry and overly salted. Not enjoyable. The Portobello Mushroom caps were tasty but swimming in olive oil and/or butter. Unappealing. My friend's salisbury steak was over cooked and too salty. She could not finish it. The salmon was tasty but too small a portion. The schnitzel was done to perfection but should be offered with veal as well as pork. My Dover Sole was tasty but also had too much oil or butter on it, despite having the butter & caper sauce on the side.
Such a fine dining establishment should take into account that not everyone enjoys having food overly seasoned with spices and salt or swimming in olive oil and or butter. It is not a healthy way to enjoy food.
By masking rather than enhancing the flavors of the actual food, everything tasted the same - fried, greasy or spicy. Hopefully, these issues can be solved because we would love to try this restaurant again because it is in a convenient location.

Had to send my steak back it was well done not medium as I ordered. It was tough and did not taste like a prime steak at all. The noise level was excessively high and very distracting. The highlight was the servers.

We decided to spend our 11th Wedding Anniversary there and we made the right choice. The only thing that I thought was a little off was the “free” dessert that was $3.06 on the bill. I didn’t understand how we got charged for something we didn’t order. I asked our waitress about it and she took it off. Of course we it was cheap but the principle of the matter is what I was puzzled about. 🤔Other than that, everything was great. Steak 44 still has you all beat 🤷🏾‍♀️.

We were there recently to celebrate our anniversary and it was perfect - from the top notch service, to the ambiance - yes, we could see Camelback Mountain from our table, to the absolutely delicious food - we both had the summer special with generous sides and the best steak!!

Overall the atmosphere and experience were good. All of the food was excellent with the exception of my 22oz bone-in ribeye.

This was handedly the worst tasting ribeye I have ever had at a restaurant. From Mastro’s to Texas Roadhouse, this ribeye was brutal. It completely lacked any flavor. I was extremely disappointed.

My wife’s wedge salad, the bread and the sides were all excellent but the steak was an abomination.

I highly doubt that we will visit The Lincoln again.

Steak not prepared properly. Not a good sign when the side dishes are the best part of the meal. The desserts were terrible.

We were disappointed. Had looked forward to a lovely evening out, but it was pretty much ruined by the exceptionally noisy dining room. Food and service were OK, but not great. We will not be returning.

One of the best meals we’ve had in a long time. Everything was expectantly prepared from the popovers, filet, sides, & dessert.
Austin our server did a great job. And it was nice that the manager remembered us and stopped by to say hello.
We’ll definitely be back soon!

Couldnt ask for better service or quality cuisine. A+ staff and a stellar chef. There was a large birthday party next to our table so their noise was a little higher than I would have preferred, but the location, ambiance, and aesthetics were excellent.

Beautiful setting on outdoor terrace and fortunately perfect weather for outdoors.

My drink came in a cracked glass, had to send back. Ordered the 2016 wine and they delivered the 2017 maybe hoping we wouldn’t notice. Ordered the salmon entree and it was served on a plate with a half tomato. Was not very appetizing. It was also farm raised so little flavor.
Waiter was terrific.
