We were the last reservation on a busy Friday night. The service was terrific. David Welch, the co-owner, helped deliver our food and answer all our questions. The salad was dressed perfectly, not a drop of dressing remained when the crisp lettuce was finished. The Lasagnette was just toothy and the sauce gave just the right bite. The dessert was... More

Had a great dinner there last week and the sun came out just in time. Thank you for an awesome meal. Started with the Beef Short Rib Tartar. Chef Jenn came by and recommended the Lamb Neck. Excellent! and filling. Can't wait to return on my next visit to the Rose City.

The food at Lincon was very good, we were actually surprised by the quality! The octopus appetizer was one of the best we have had, so tender and delicious! My rabbit pasta was also very good. The kids shared a 47% chicken that was tender and tasty. The atmosphere did seem to be lacking a little something? But we can't... More

We eat about anything but I was a bit unsure by the menu. Just wasn't sure how the combinations of flavored would mesh. All I can say it was fantastic. We started off with Jewish artichokes that had an aolie that was wonderful. I had the celery salad with barley and goat cheese. It was so good. My wife had... More

What a wonderfully creative, and skilled kitchen this restaurant offers! Two different dinners at Lincoln have introduced exciting, fresh treatments of local, Northwest ingredients, served by knowledgeable staff. Most recently, it was a first course of Farrotto—risotto made with farro and nettles, topped with duck egg. And then there was lamb neck! Here’s to making the whole animal a delicacy—great... More

We had a very nice meal here paired with two good French wines, fairly priced. We are foodies, but also like comfort food. Here, you can get both. I had a flavorful crab bisque with a small dollop of whipped potatoes. That was followed by an entree of some of the most flavorful/juicy chicken I have ever eaten.

Local neighborhood restaurant decorated in warehouse chic. Music in the bar area – too loud. Ask to be seated in the dining area where the open Kitchen in located. Dress attire is Smart & Casual but you will feel comfortable in jeans, as well. We were greeted by a fine young man. Anthony was our waiter. This restaurant's menu changes... More

We live on the west side of the city and this restaurant is on the northeast side. But it was so good we will drive back over to go again. From the Burrata Brushetta to the popcorn panna cotta and everything in between, the food and cocktails were wonderful. Sometimes when you hear about a great place it doesn't live... More
