We loved our dinner. I thought the RW menu was really nice - not limited like some menus. We loved the variety of flavors & ambiance. Extensive gluten free & vegan options. Can't wait to return.

WOW! wish we had one in Atlanta, Ga! The restaurant was fabulous . . . wonderful menu - all delicious, waiter was extremely accommodating when my daughter decided she didn't like her dinner and requested mac n cheese. Unique and fun cocktails. The snapper dish was the best I've had in a long time and I am a regular foodie... More

Loved this place. What a nice change to the usual restaurant/pub scene! Funky, hip decor, very visually pleasing. Eclectic and inventive menu. They even had GF options listed - which I greatly appreciated. I actually got to have the Wagyu sliders (GF buns!) - delicious! The service was attentive and and friendly. Overall a very good time! :)

My wife and I went on Valentine's night -- so, atypically for Linger, they were serving a fixed-price menu, not their usual fare of tapas-type items. In any case -- it was really good, with original and creative recipes combining flavors in inventive and delicious ways. The waitstaff was authentically amiable and helpful, if a bit harried, and the culinary... More

I've heard a ton of good things about linger, but I have to say I was disappointed. The venue is definitely neat, but even on a Wednesday you have to have reservations for as little as 2 people or you are fending for yourself up at the bar space. The bar space is large, but crowded. It took about 30... More

Wide variety of tastes available, all executed well in a fun, funky (and surprisingly intimate, for a large space) space. Great value for the quality

Visited the spot recently with a group while in town on business. I read the back story and found it to be interesting. The place with packed on a week night - obvisouly poplar. We had a reservation but the table was not ready. It was a happening place and neat to visit. I cannot really comment on the service... More

Finally made it to Linger on our last drive down to Denver. It did not disappoint! Menu was fun and eclectic! My husband and I tried a few of the items and thought they were all great. I think our favorite was the Devils on Horseback and the Waygu Sliders. Yum! We will be back.

The food here is really delicious, but the excellent service was what made it stand out. I really loved the Crispy Cheese and Shishito Peppers and the Falafel Lettuce Wraps but the clear winner was the 'Coffee and Donuts' Dessert. I highly recommend this place to anyone who wants to enjoy a variety of 'small shared dishes'.

First trip to Linger. Menu was surprisingly unique. Food was equally excellent, as was service. The different ethnic themes are pretty nifty too. The menu is divided into regional influences and broken down by vegan and gluten-free. Definitely will return.
