We made this place a must after reading a little about the buildings history. (Hint: it used to be a mortuary). The interior is a fantastic combination of old and new. The food is where it's at, though. Offerings are themed off of all areas of the world, and portioned to encourage ordering a few and sharing. We ordered the... More

Decided to go to lunch after an appointment in town. The food was great, but slow to come out. It may have been due to the large number of people.

This place has a great happy hour menu. We went there on a nice summer's day, sat upstairs on the patio and enjoyed the view. The food is very tasty and they offer a great selection of small plates. Really enjoyed the sangria too. Service was excellent.

Linger is in an old mortuary building. It gets noisy and crowded but it's lots of fun. We visited at happy hour (4-6) and sat upstairs. It was too cold for outside and the view was nothing special anyway, just the rooftops of other buildings. The owners of Linger should request (or pay) the buildings nearby to decorate their roofs,... More

This is an interesting restaurant that used to be a mortuary. Aside from the gory past, the place is nicely decorated in a bit of a retro style with comfy benches, very large and airy space. The rooftop has some nice view of the downtown, it's own separate menu (smaller but good). The place gets packed on weekends so do... More

Nice, unique menu with attentive servers and beautiful atmosphere. The rooftop bar is really cool and it was a great place to relax and catch up with friends over great food and drinks.

Great place for those who want an energetic environment yet still a degree of coziness. The only reason I didn't give it five stars is that our server was overwhelmed and was not on top of his game. Food is great, drinks are creative, rooftop bar and view just can't be beat. Looking forward to going back.

We love this place. It is a bit noisy and pricey but they do a great job on all the different dishes they offer. It is a great place to share plates and try different things.
