Unfortunately I have to provide a low rating because the restaurant was closed for renovations, but did not make this clear on their website or on Opentable, where we were able to secure (and received multiple confirmations for) a business dinner reservation for 6 people.
The party was left locked outside, having to find a last minute restaurant.
How can you take reservations online and then not be a open on a Saturday night???????
The place closed weeks ago (we showed up and found out the hard way) but is still taking OpenTable reservations !? What gives?
Even though I made an OpenTable reservation at the Lindeman for Sunday brunch, when all of my party arrived at the restaurant, it was not open. I wish OpenTable had alerted me. It caused us difficulty because we had a theatrical event to attend afterward, and our time was tight and had been planned carefully.
Was closed even though open table let me make a reservation...found out upon arrival.
Visited for Sunday Brunch. Sat in bar area which is in entrance. Very nice ambience. Unfortunately bartender did not show for work but waitress was very accommodating on supplying the drinks she could make. Food was excellent but took a very long time to be served. Know this is a somewhat new establishment so will give them a bit more time to establish themselves before returning.
Very mediocre. Would not go back.
This has risen from the ashes of KTCHN which had always been a disaster--never knew what it wanted to be and staffed by people who wanted to do anything other than be working there. The new incarnation is a complete turnaround. The food is delicious. The half price small plates for happy hour are a steal. The service is great. The drinks are strong. This place deserves a shot. It is a bit of a hike up 42nd, but worth it.
slower than the slowest service possible. we had brunch this weekend , there were maybe 4 tables occupied in the restaurant. food was ok, but service was almost non-existent. we got the omelets on time, but then afterwards that was it. nobody asked us if we want anything else, the glasses stayed empty, we wanted to order dessert but there was nobody to ask for. in the end we asked two different waiters happening to walk by for our bill-our waiter just came in the end to get the card. weird- one would think that he would want to sell more- but maybe not???
Closed without any notice!
I was very surprised with how good the food was. Went there just because it was close by and honestly didn't know what to expect. Turned out it was a movie night and there weren't too many people there. We ordered 4 small plates: Broccolini with Pistachio and Lemon oil, Chicken Fried Quail, Lamb Meat Balls, and Hudson Valley Duck. Everything was amazingly good!
The broccolini was a bit tangy and loved the little bits of pistachios that added a slight crunch to it. I only wish that the broccolini was a bit crispier but most people I know would think it was perfect as is. The quail was done like fried chicken and I never had that before. It was such a delight even the health-conscious me ate everything piece of fried skin. Yum! The star was definitely the duck. It was made with toasted hazelnut one a bed of farro and pickled carrot salad. I kept saying this is so tasty over and over again while I was eating it. I wish I knew the recipe to that so I could cook it at home all the time.
All in all, the food is like what you would find in one of those shi shi places but the restaurant was not sceny or even crowded. Prices were quite reasonable and the decor was nice and cozy. Definitely would go back.
I use to go here when it was KTCHN - I like the new menu, the food was very tasteful and I would come back again.
brunch in NYC is overrated anyways and this place has no fancy dishes except avocado toast but everything on the menu was very well made. Scrambled eggs were fluffy and omelets were cooked perfectly.
The food was very good and service great. My only complaint was the music was awful. It was distracting.
Shared a bunch of small dishes and a pasta for a light dinner date. Place was a bit of a disappointment. Grilled octopus was tiny and a bit over cooked. Beef carpaccio was inundated with olive oil and the slices of beef were measly. Presentation was nice except for the lamb meatballs which looked like cup of marinara for someone's entree.
Service started ok and then fell apart. Felt cheated when i ordered the less expensive glass of wine which they said they ere out of and had to pay three more per glass... bait and switch. there's some sort of back room that has a half curtain hanging on it and you can see storage etc. You can fit into a booth if you weigh more than 150. Maybe the'll get organized but I wont be back until I hear they are
So great! Perfect!
Great place for an intimate dinner; the food was amazing. It's just a hike getting there and is not a cheap meal.
We have loved this place for years. Under new management the atmosphere is even better! Food is amazing. We had the roared chicken and the pork chop m entrees. Both amazing! The specialty cocktails are incredible. One of my favorite NYC dining spots!
Good new spot. Good small plates, fantastic ribeye entree. Not too busy yet, need to work on ambiance. Have a spot for a piano player which would go a long way to kicking this to the next level.
