    The ambiance and warmth of the setting is perhaps what draws people here. For me, the food has never been good and the service has always been poor. Last night was no exception.

    Food was good although our steak was undercooked (medium rare instead of medium). Service could have been better. We received a call from the restaurant on our way home. The manager let us know they had no record of payment. When we let him know we paid in cash he seemed surprised and apologized for the call. It was a weird call. Not sure how I feel about the restaurant now.

    Dinner at Lindey's was great for our small business celebration was perfect. Everyone's commented on how great the food was, our waiter was incredibly attentive, and the room was quiet enough that we could hear our own conversations and not the next table's. Great place to go!

    We made a reservation online for Lindey’s for the night we got engaged so it was a special occasion. I included that bit of info with the special occasion portion of the reservation. Nothing was mentioned about it. Food was at times very good (the fig jelly appetizer) and at times not very good at all. Our Filets were outstanding quality, but the Demi glaze on mine was very salty. The bearnaise sauce was excellent. The lobster bisque soup was a huge disappointment. Theirs was fairly flavorless and had only a hint of actual lobster. Service was decent but not as good as I heard it would be. Again we were there for a special occasion and nothing was mentioned. We weren’t expecting anything but even a congrats would have been nice since the reservation request asked of any occasions.

    We hosted a friend for brunch to celebrate her birthday. Our request for a particular table was honored, and we ad an altogether enjoyable experience. The service was impeccable, and the meal was delicious. Lindey’s remains one of our all-time favorites, and we look forward to our next meal there.

    The overall experience was very good. The drinks were reasonably priced, and the appetizers were excellent. The main course was ok, I may have just ordered the wrong thing. The service was mediocre at best. I will try it again but with lower expectations next time.
