Always an amazing experience! This is my favorite restaurant in the cities. The food is on point every time, the cocktails are also top notch. My usual order is a Cesar salad and the cheeseburger. It will be the best cheeseburger you’ve ever had, same with the salad. Good luck not getting addicted.

Very good food. At our table, we had the burger, chicken dinner, and lamb pizza. All were very good. The big hit was the appetizer - hummus with lamb. Outstanding!

Everything was perfection. The food delicious as always. The service was great. They take everyone’s safety very seriously. I really appreciated the relaxed atmosphere and appropriate spacing between the tables and groups of diners. It’s too bad they are losing their space and closing soon.

This is the ultimate “neighborhood” bar and restaurant!! Perfectly executed everyday food and stellar bar options too. Not many restaurants can satisfy family dinners and special occasion dates at the same time flawlessly but Lyn65 delivers!! They may close down temporarily on April 10 but trust me, you will definitely want to get here when they reopen in a new, as yet undisclosed, location! Hint: probably very close by the existing spot! ☺️

It’s been a year since we’ve been here due to the pandemic, and I’m still a little uncomfortable with being under 6 feet away from other people. The food is just as delicious as always; we had mussels (broth was complex and a bit spicy) Brussels sprouts, and cauliflower - all amazing. The thing I’m missing are the cocktails - they’ve gotten rid of a few winners, overall seemed to be sweeter than before, and the unique combinations available in the past have been whittled way down. We have generally come for the drinks and stayed for the food, so hopefully the creative cocktails make a comeback.

The staff at Lyn 65 are always super friendly, attentive and know when to give you space to enjoy your meal. This is one of the few restaurants I’ve gone to during Covid and continue to go back since it feels safe. Tables are spaced comfortably apart, good amount of room to get to the restroom without invading other dinners space and masks on every staff member.
I’m usually a beet salad and burger order but switched it up to just the fried chicken sandwich, hot damn it was good! Husbands steak was cooked perfect as usual.

My boyfriend and I wanted to have a date night, and we enjoy trying different restaurants so we decided to try Lyn 65 this time. We ordered some bone marrows as an appetizer, and they were delicious!! Then we ordered/shared fried chicken and bistro style steak for dinner. The fried chicken was one of the best I’ve ever had. Crispy and juicy! The steak was also great. We enjoyed them all and we will definitely go back there again soon!

We are regulars at Lyn 65. It has been our go to place. In recent months the experience has been inconsistent. Of course we understand that with COVID it is a struggle to staff and run a restaurant but our recent experience missed the mark in a lot of ways. The music was strange - almost frantic sounding and way too loud. We had to ask twice to have it turned down. Unfortunately we sat under a speaker, but still! We had never even noticed the music in the past when we’ve been there. The menu is also very limited. We missed a really delicious item that had been in the menu the week before but was now removed and our waiter did not know why. Our cocktails were also rather sweet when in the week prior the same cocktail tasted quite a bit different. They are also way understaffed with waitstaff working multiple responsibilities including fulfilling takeout orders. It was just disappointing.

We miss the printed cocktail menu and wine list. We’re regulars and want to know all the ingredients in the cocktails and the particulars about the wine.

Great Cava on hand right now.

Good food as always.

I was really excited to try this place out since I’ve heard great things. The burger and drinks were great but my bistro steak left much to be desired. The steak was wonderfully tender but it was overcooked and the 3 ramekins (1 ketchup, 1 hollandaise and 1 steak sauce) made me feel like I was eating at fuddruckers. 😆. I just expected better presentation from such a “chef-driven,” joint. Otherwise I would try it again!

I didn’t have faith in the fried chicken at first as I’m from Alabama, but I was very impressed. Well done, Lyn 65; well done.
