    The menu was new, so it was different from the website. The website should be up-dated to match the menu. This made a difference in our meal selections. This also made a difference in the price expectation. The parking for the restaurant was very convenient using the valet, but we would not have known how to park if we hadn't received this information from a friend. Parking procedures and places and cost need to be explained on the website and signage provided at the restaurant location.

    This restaurant was SO good. Of course the environment is beautiful since it's a newer space, but the staff was incredible and so kind, and the food was delicious. We enjoyed a dinner celebrating a birthday and it was the perfect spot for great food, ambience and drinks. Definitely recommend getting a scoop or two of the UNL Dairy Store ice cream too.

    Enjoyed a delicious New Year’s Eve meal with friends. The food was beautifully prepared and presented, service was attentive but not intrusive and atmosphere quite lovely. My only complaint was that we were seated right by the kitchen/serving area when there were ample other less trafficked table options available.

    So outstanding! From the moment we arrived, every person was most helpful and friendly--the doorman was the best one I have ever encountered, other staff members were attentive and helpful, our waitress was so friendly and one of the very best we have ever had, the food was mouth-watering delicious, our order came out quickly, and it was a most delightful choice for our 50th wedding anniversary on December 23, 2022. I wish I had gotten the names of everyone so I could write a personal letter to their supervisors for the very excellent meal we enjoyed! Highly recommend if you have not tried this restaurant! Unfortunately it was a bit too chilly for the rooftop, but we will return! 10 STARS! Thank you all so much!

    This was my first visit to Well & Good but will not be my last. Beautiful interior, comfortable seating. Our waiter was outstanding! He was able to keep track of shared plates, shared wine, shared desserts and managed to get all 7 checks correct when we were ready to leave. The food was superb, well prepared and came out of the kitchen fairly soon after we ordered. Highly recommend!

    I was part of a group of 5. Our server, Michael, was very attentive and had good suggestions regarding the menu. Everyone enjoyed their meal. We had duck wings for an appetizer, and I whole heartedly recommend them! The pork chop I had was maybe the best I have ever had in a restaurant. Great atmosphere--nice but not snooty, not too quiet or too noisy. Loved the entire experience!

    Booked a reservation but the didn’t seem to have it as they asked us to sit at the bar. There was no music playing so it was weirdly quiet. The food was all good, but we felt it was overpriced for what we were getting. The bar was busy so no fault on them but we definitely felt a strange vibe like no one cared we were there

    We had a great time at Well & Good celebrating our anniversary! The ‘braska buns were absolutely delicious as a starter. For our main courses, I ordered the seared salmon with a side of brussel sprouts and my partner ordered the good burger with a side of potatoes. It was great! The staff is super friendly and wished us a happy anniversary. We even got a chocolate espresso cake for dessert that said “Happy Anniversary”. We will definitely be back to try more of the dishes!

    The food and flavors are outstanding; I found myself going twice in the same weekend so I could try something different on the menu. The menu isn't extensive, but what they have is so good you'll be wanting to order the same choices again anyway. Nice atmosphere, doesn't feel like a "hotel restaurant" at all. Be patient when awaiting the arrival of your meal. It's not slow per se, but reflects the time necessary to prepare with fresh, locally farmed ingredients and present artfully. If you're a foodie and haven't tried Well & Good yet, you're missing out.

    Have a good concept in mind. Lincoln and UNL campus need this. Devaney needed this. We believe the menu will get better as well as options. This place is too new to give best case scenario. All this because the help is either a hot mess, out in left field or has no sense of urgency. Bison burger and schnitzel chicken club was pretty good. Just took some standing on our head to get bartenders attention for first…drinks. Would recommend because a continued pressure crowd will make them conform.

    This restaurant has a lot of potential, and I hope it's eventually realized. They were woefully understaffed the evening we were there - one single server and a trainee at his elbow. The hostesses (there were two at the door on arrival, one seemed to be there for the bar side) had to be enlisted as the evening progressed, to serve tables and bus. It got pretty busy, maybe 15 or so tables occupied, so way too many customers for the number of staff. That said, our meals were okay, although one of our party who asked clearly that his salad dressing be on the side, received the salad dressed. He didn't eat it, and they consequently didn't charge him. Still...this is so basic, it's hard to justify, other than the distraction of being overwhelmed with tables to serve. The room is nice and it's GREAT that there are no TV monitors hanging all over the place! Also, there are fabric draperies, deep upholstered booths, and lots of sound-absorbent wood, which helps to moderate the noise level. The menu is VERY limited, a handful of items really, but that would be fine if it's always well prepared. My grilled half chicken was good, but a bit overcooked - not as moist as I'd have liked. The crispy potato side is a nice alternative to fries. As I said, this place has a lot of potential to be a real go-to dining destination, but it's not there yet. Hire more staff, vary the menu...

    Our second visit for dinner. We enjoyed ourselves very much each time. The menus is a little limited but there’s something for everyone. Same for wine list. Go to the roof deck before or after dinner for a unique (for Lincoln) experience with a glass of wine.

    We hope this new restaurant can work its kinks out. It has a wonderful ambiance and close to the UNL volleyball venue. Unfortunately, they were understaffed for the crowd that arrived before the Nebraska-Stanford volleyball game -- especially in the bar area. We had dinner reservations at 5 p.m. Ordered drinks about 5:15 p.m. and they did not arrive for 30 or more minutes. During that entire time, we had water. When we asked about our drinks, our waiter said the bar was backed up. We ordered our food (bison burger and chicken sandwich) around 5:35 (when checking on our drinks) and received the food at 6:35 p.m. The chicken on my sandwich was burnt (black on the edges) and only the center portion was edible when I took the sandwich a part to be able to eat some of it. My husband's bison burger was fine. We thought arriving 2 hours before the volleyball game would give us plenty of time, but we were late for the game. Again, this place has an interesting menu and lots of potential. We can understand being short staffed in today's work environment. But, last night the limited staff paid more attention to the people buying drinks in the bar rather than the patrons sitting in the restaurant area order dinners and drinks.
