    Went for my husband’s birthday and we both really enjoyed it. The chili burger, ceviche, and lamb skewers were all fantastic and the service was well-timed/attentive/helpful without being obnoxious. Food and drinks came out remarkably fast and the menu selection seemed high-end and thoughtfully curated but still fairly unique. Pricing wasn’t outrageous. However, I do think some of their menu items were overpriced and, even though nothing tasted bad, a couple of items were underwhelming. The decor, atmosphere and ambiance of the spot is really cool and nicely done, BUT the volume level inside was remarkably NOISY! We had to take turns leaning over the table towards one another and speaking slowly/loudly to hold any form of conversation. It could’ve just been the crowd that night, but it didn’t seem like anyone in particular was being noticeably loud- just the constant, resounding boom of chatter dialed up Level 10. So, I’d highly recommend it for the start of a party night or high-energy kind of get together, but not for business dinners or anything you may not want to yell about in a crowd. Overall, I highly recommend checking out the place and am very glad we booked it!!! It’s a cool lil fun vibe spot! Kudos to the staff and management!

    I went here on a date. The food was good, not particularly expensive for what it is. I did not have a drink, but my date said hers was very good. Our waitress was incredible and super nice. I got the wagyu and it came with a sort of...sauce/oil/reduction on it. It was good, but there was no reason to have the sauce since the meat itself was delicious. Other than that, great service and atmosphere I hope to go back.

    Lincoln Street is one of my favorite places in Charlotte! The drinks and food rival any place in the city, the rooftop offered a gorgeous view of downtown Charlotte, the service was top notch, and the overall energy of the restaurant is incredible!

    They were out of several major items, including all salads, the salmon, and the cauliflower. The server’s attitude was flippant when we acted surprised that so many items were not available. In general the service was below average. The cocktails were great and so was the wine. Great atmosphere and decor.

    We were 2 couples visiting Charlotte and picked Lincoln Street to make reservations for a Saturday evening. It wasn’t very busy when we arrived (6:45). Our server was great. We thought we might be hungry because of the small plates, but we were not. The serving size was perfect. We thoroughly enjoyed the pork chops and chicken. The roasted potatoes and Brussels sprouts were also delicious. Would definitely dine here again.

    Hubs and I grabbing brunch before a shopping excursion in town. While we were there they had a very large group (15-20?) in. This group was extremely rowdy and we had to move to a bar seat on the other side of the house and we could still hear them. We saw two other groups move outside to avoid. While this group was particularly obnoxious, probably not a bad idea to limit groups to six or 8 due to acoustics and such a small place. Otherwise, food and drinks were AMAZING as was Elizabeth, our server.

    The cocktails were good. Their use of house made shrubs as infusions into some of their cocktails is creative. The food was a mixed experience. The shishito pepper with pecorino covering app was delicious. We probably should have stopped there. The PEI Mussels in coconut red curry were barely average. The curry broth was runny and flavorless. The mussels arrived with 25% unopened, 25% empty - no mussels at all; the remaining were steamed well but more than once we bit into sand and grit. Just not enjoyable at all. The asparagus side was good but we noted the bottom layer of the stack were the butter while ends; so you last few bites are the worst part of the asparagus- the part most places toss out and don’t serve. The service - pleasant but very rushed. Waitress offered little guidance or useful insights. Little things like forgetting to bring small plates when our second dish arrived; she cleared the dirty dishes after first app but then never replaced them. We eventually gave up and took some from another table that was setup. At end of meal, she brought the handheld checkout device to the table, announced the total check price for all to hear, and then had me tap my card and choose the tip all while she held the device at the table. Really awkward. We didn’t stay for dessert or any cordials. The dessert options seemed like an after thought and weren’t enticing at all. Flourless chocolate cake (what is it 1985?), a lemon curd, or soggy donuts (aka Beignets). As for after dinner drinks, this cocktail specialty kitchen didn’t offer any liquid dessert or alcoholic digestives; or if they did, it’s another thing the aloof waitress forgot to tell us about. Bottom line, go for a cocktail or two at the bar; for the food, be prepared for hit/miss inconsistency.

    We went for brunch on a Sunday and it was a great time! The standouts were the great service from Elizabeth our server and the awesome cocktails we had - super unique and delicious. I also liked the pleasant vibe of the entire service team - the hostesses and waitresses all seemed to pitch in to help each other when things where super busy. Our food was excellent too. Great experience overall - will definitely be back!

    Very cute atmosphere but nothing really wowed me on the menu. Tapas style and if you are looking for just a good date night or girls night out, this isn't a bad place to be. Even though nothing wowed me, the food and the service was still good. The Ceviche, Brussels and pimento cheese were probably the best thing on the menu. The pimento cheese had this Smokey flavor to it which kinda surprised me. The wagyu was good and the chicken didn't seem like it had enough flavor to it, but it comes with mushrooms and mashed potatoes that added to the experience if you eat it all together in one bite.

    I would not describe the noise level as energetic - I would say it was uncomfortable, a very large table of women should have been approached by management to calm down — this showed a lack of concern for other patrons by management. I would not recommend Lincoln Street Kitchen & Cocktails only because management should have engaged the party of 8 women and asked them to lower their voices — this was after all a Sunday afternoon.

    Had an incredible time going out for dinner. Had the pimento cheese with the bacon jam, the ceviche, and the wagyu entree. Everything was so flavorful and the only downside was that they were out of the wagyu app and the beignets. Would go back for date night without hesitation

    Bathrooms were locked when they weren’t. And they were difficult to lock at times and so my privacy was invaded a couple of times. Food was expensive for what little you get and took very long to arrive.
