    Lindey's always an amazing dining experience. Everything on the menu looks like a home run. I had the Tourenado Beef and my wife went with the special which was a scallop dish. Fantastic. The servers are amazing as well.

    Complementary valet is key with the cold weather and German Village streets! Food and wine were fabulous as normal, I had the daily specialty of Halibut over wilted spinach with a creamy sauce. Everyone enjoyed their meals!

    I took my husband to Lindey’s for our anniversary dinner. They did not disappoint. The food was so good and my steak was cooked to perfection. They even sent out a glass of champagne to our table to celebrate our Anniversary. Our service was exceptional. She was very attentive but not to the point where she was annoying. Everything about the night was perfect including the guys working the Valet. I would definitely recommend.

    This place was amazing! I took my family from out of town for my sisters birthday and they were super great with accommodating a birthday cake for her and just the party as a whole. They took the cake in the back for me so it would be a surprise and served it after dinner with candles and then cut it for us as well! Our server was amazing and was always there to help. The food was great and cooked perfectly. I would recommend this place to everyone for a great special occasion dinner!

    Dinner was amazing as always. We tried the cauliflower appetizer and it was the best tempura we have ever had. The sauces were flavorful but not overwhelming. Two of us got the angel hair shrimp pasta which is to die for. It's perfect. Please don't ever take it off the menu. My husband got the sausage pasta and it is now his favorite thing on the menu. Our kids got the smash burgers and devoured them. And then ate the brownie dessert. Andrew was our server and he was so good. Attentive for the perfect amount of time and he didn't forget about us once. Loved the whole experience and will be back.

    The entire experience was fantastic. Multiple staff stated happy birthday to my girlfriend. Our waiter was very polite, classy and professional. He used a napkin to cover the one side of my girlfriend’s glass when he poured the water, so it wouldn’t splash on her. The steak frites were very tender.

    The service was terrible. Our waitress could not be found except when dropping food or drinks. We had to grab someone else to ask for something. When she delivered a beer she spilt it all over her tray and didnt even offer to wipe the glass off. It was just very frustrating when all the other servers at the tables around us were paying close attention to their tables and were always checking on them. We might go back and hope to get another server because the food was good. The lobster rissoto didnt have much lobster in it but still very good.
