Dined here last night as a couple and had a wonderful experience. We booked quite late in the evening but this was no problem and we were greeted by a very helpful and police waiter who I had spoken to on the phone. The restaurant had a very sophisticated atmosphere to it and candles were lit on every table. We... More

Visited last Thursday evening. Great location above the brayford wharf looking down on Lincoln whole sipping a cocktail. The food was great, I had the pork trio looked and tasted fantastic and finished with a very Moorish caramel tart. Very enjoyable night, will be visiting again soon.

We were staying in the doubletree hotel so my boyfriend and I kept popping into the electric bar on the way back to our room. The cosmos were delicious, especially as I asked them for a bit of an extra kick of lime and they certainly hit the spot as well as having a biting on of houmous and pitta... More

I should have reviewed this place when I last visited this restaurant in June. Back then I would have said that this place is amazing. Having a young daughter we rarely have the opportunity to go out for an evening meal so lunch is our thing. The Lunch menu is boring, I opted for the Spiced Aubergine and Feta Cheese... More

I came to the Electric for a lunch last week and have to say I left feeling a little disappointed, having expected a really exceptional meal. We waited a little longer than I would have liked to be greeted, to the point where we were a bit put out and just about to leave to head elsewhere. That being said,... More

I came here for a birthday dinner. The staff were excellent!! Attentive, efficient, polite and well presented. The food was very good indeed - I only wish I had more of an appetite. The cost was a pleasant surprise and a free glass of prosecco was most welcome. We particularly enjoyed the fact the music wasn't thumping loud and the... More

A huge selection of cocktails - something for everyone! After dinner on the Brayford this was the perfect place to finish the evening off! I never realised Lincoln could look so lovely!! The cocktails can bit a little on the pricey side but you get what you pay for! I shall definitely be returning soon!

Amazing choice of cocktails over looking the beautiful city as the sun was setting. I was there with my husband and the atmosphere was fantastic to celebrate our anniversary. Cocktails slightly on the pricey side for Lincoln (similar price to what I pay in Hertfordshire, if not more), good for a treat or special occasion.

Before we started our lunch meal we were given four thick slices of stale bread that must have been left out over night. The roast lamb my wife had was inedible as were the roast potatoes which she couldn't even get her fork into. The head waiter was apologetic and offered some rebate which we refused.

Sorry to hear about your experience in our restaurant recently. I can assure you that we bake our own bread daily and it always goes out fresh, never have we used bread from the previous day in our restaurant. We did apologise for the lamb like you mentioned and offered to do you a fresh cooked dish which you refused... More
