Housed in a former mortuary, the decor layers macabre remnants with posh details in a window-flanked space overlooking the charming Lower Highland neighborhood. The drink menu features sips and seasonings as savory as the dishes with which they're paired. While the rooftop patio-outfitted with 1975 GMC RV as bar and repurposed food truck as kitchen- beckons patrons towards adventure.

    We waited 30 minutes before the server brought water and took our drink order. The food arrived within the next 20 minutes. 1 drink and 1 entree never arrived. The server was having a rough night. Repeatedly said, “the new system keeps messing up.” The two tables surrounding us also said they had entrees that never showed up. Manager also stopped by. Thank goodness the food that did arrive tasted bomb! I’ve been raving about this place to my friends from out of town.

    I’ve been to Linger a few times - this time was exceptional! The food was even more delicious than usual, our server was fantastic and so helpful and eager to figure out ways to work with allergies. I appreciate all of the Edible Beats restaurants for their attention to quality food, ingredients and ability to happily and seamlessly make accommodations for allergies.

    Food was good but all small servings. I know they are meant to be shared, but that made them even smaller. Overall it was good. Loud and crowded will a very small table for four.

    Service was stretched a little thin. My wife had planned to order another drink but never had the opportunity. We consciously ordered our entrees with the appetizers because we already sensed we could be waiting to see our server again. The food was very good. Highly recommend the Bao Bun trio. The atmosphere was engaging and appealing, the service was pretty meh.

    Went for mothers day and was very disappointed. 20 mins for the waitress to come greet us and take our drink orders and then disappeared. had to ask another waitress for help. Overall very disappointing on the service and wait times for food, even if you factor in the holiday.

    The food and service are always top-notch at Linger. Didn’t save room for dessert but the small plates were all delicious, especially the Wagyu sliders and waffle fries w/ ketchup aioli, Devils on Horseback, and Bao Buns. Will be back for the brunch menu soon!

    Wow! This place was incredible. Came for a late brunch. Right when you walk in the smell of the food is just amazing. Our server Xander was very helpful - we especially appreciated how he coursed everything out perfectly and pre-split a couple things we had ordered for sharing. This is reaching, but some constructive feedback for management would be that they were a little slow to bus and reset tables. We had a reservation, showed up exactly on time, and still had to wait a little over 5 minutes to be sat. Coffee was lukewarm as well. This did not at all deter us from wanting to visit again and we look forward to trying dinner soon.

    Cool space but bathrooms not kept. Toilets don’t flush. Server forgot simple things like refilling water and food item ordered. Honestly no one working there smiled, not the hosts, servers or managers walking the floor, so weird. Food was ok, sauces heavy handed- Korean bbq was just Hoisin sauce, the best thing was the drinks who ever made the old fashion rocked. They get away with that because it’s “Linger”. Seemed irritated that we were there. My boyfriend said not to tip but I still did, 20%.

    We went for dinner and had several dishes, tapas style. Nearly all were very good. The sliders were great, the pad thai we didn't like. This may sound strange, but we didn't really like the dining chairs that had a large armrest on one side, and no armrest on the other. It's a little pricey, but not unreasonable for this day and age. We will go back, but likely for a drink and appetizer rather than a whole meal.

    IT WAS AWESOME! We had a group of 6 of us, so we got to try lots of dishes, and there wasn’t a bad one in the bunch! The Korean tacos and the beef skewer were highlights for me. The waiter was great, but not on top the that drinks- we had to ask to order more and get refills on the waters. But she was very kind and knowledgeable, and that certainly didn’t take away from the amazing experience!

    It was disappointing. Showed up 10 minutes early for the reservation, was seated 10 minutes late. No big deal there but it took a good 15 minutes for someone to greet us and bring water, over 40 minutes for a round of drinks, another 40 minutes for food. We didn’t dare order more because we didn’t want to be there for 3 more hours and the service killed the mood. Meanwhile the table next to us got great service, drinks and food flowing no problem, same waitress. She was somewhat short with us from the minute we sat down, not really sure what her problem was. Food was good (sliders, potstickers, satay, tacos, egg rolls) but the service totally killed it.

    The service was quite slow last night. Food was good, the sliders were a bit underdone. We did have several people in our group that were late, but it still took 30 minutes to get a drink! There is also a 5% fee for “fair wages” on top of every drink and app being around $20… you should pay your workers adequately or build it into your already expensive menu prices instead of passing it on to the consumer. Overall okay experience, we probably will not be back.
