Great food!!

The food here is different and great!! It is difficult to find anything that isn't spicy on the menu. The place is pretty packed as it should be.

I had the lamb and my boyfriend the bison. We both loved it. Also the cocktails were excellent. One of my friend had two desserts, after he tried my lava cake he had to get one. People are nice and professional. decoration is beautiful. We were surprised to find such a place in the middle of nowhere (for us was... More

You walk right into the restaurant, so on a crowded day you may end up standing awkwardly among people dining. You are best off making a reservation. Also, also best to call first and make sure they are actually open. That's a NH thing though. This place greatly depends on tourist traffic. The art work inside is absolutely gorgeous and... More

We have been here multiple times and it never disappoints! The food is so creative and always excellent. I had the kale salad and calamari! Our server was top notch. This is a gem in Lincoln that is not to be missed. Also very reasonable! Make sure to try this restaurant.

I wish there were seven stars in the rating system because Gypsy would be the only one to get it hands down. The appetizers were all delectable : cauliflower patties, quinoa cakes and baked curry chicken wings. Each of our entrees were to die for. The coconut curry barramundi had me licking the plate. The walnut beet farfalle was the... More

The chef here is inspired - a very eclectic fusion-style that actually works because it's based on the actual food items. Plus, they are very good about dealing with food allergies - I can't do anything with peanuts - they do have peanut items, but were very good about letting me know what dishes might have hidden issues for me....

Based on other reviews we gave this little place a try and we were not disappointed. Don't go if you are looking for fried clams or other normal northeastern seafood fare (we love and seek out this too, but just want to emphasize that you won't find it here). We had instead a wonderful appetizer of lobster toasts with thai... More

During our ski vacation visit to the area, we expected the usual run of the mill restaurant selections in town. We decided to give this place a go and - wow - what a pleasant surprise. Excellent tasting dishes! We had great service but I can see how on busy days some have experienced frustration and disappointment. Regardless of a... More

What a treat this place was. Ask a local about the best food in Lincoln and this is where they'll send you. The menu is varied and creative. You'll have a hard time choosing. Luckily we were a big party...so we shared. Staff was great!
