Nice open restaurant. In nice weather sides open up feeling like you are eating outside. Good menu with fresh foods. I had a nice spaghetti with octopus and albacore. Others had the chicken. All enjoyed the meal. Desserts are a real treat especially the popcorn pana cotta

We had a wonderful meal here earlier this week. The green beans with apricots were special favorite! We ordered a number of appetizers in addition to our entrées, and each dish was special in its own way. We also loved the setting of the restaurant, because it was a lovely evening, all of the windows were open to the street.... More

If you are more interested in unusual ingredients and how the meal looks this is the place fir you. Your friends will be impressed. If you are more interested in how the food tastes, go somewhere else. Don't get me wrong food is not bad it just isn't that great. Friendly staff and good service and a pleasant setting. Only...

Tonight we met an old friend and his new lady at this NW Williams Avenue Bistro-Style restaurant because we had a $100 gift card purchased at a charity auction that we needed to use. We'd never heard of this eatery at all, but we all enjoyed our unusual dishes and can't wait to go back again! We were greeted by... More

As a local, we have so many choices when it comes to great places for dinner and Lincoln is one of our go-to places. Chef Jenn Louis has created a small intimate space with the most amazing food. Focusing on what I would say is rustic Italian at its best! This visited, my husband and I shared plates, a salmon... More

Went here for Happy Hour and sat at the bar. I ordered the poutine. It had a giant meatball on it and really wasn't the poutine that I expected. Service was a little slow as it was not very busy that day. We had a couple of drinks and our bill was pretty high for HH prices.

The menu maybe part of the contrarian trend from healthier cuisine of many restaurants to menus emphasizing heavier (fats, cream, etal) dishes. Not that there is a lack of choices, limited, so one can get a fish dish minus some of the heavier addons (bacon wrapped for instance). Libations (cocktails, wines, craft brews) were plentiful and varied. Our group sampled... More

I may be too old for this restaurant. It is a Friday night, 7:30 pm. As soon as I opened the door I knew this place was not for us. LOUD! Britt may be a spectacular server but she can't make a silk purse out of a sow's ear.When you can't talk to your table mate without yelling it does... More
