I love food and I love to eat out, with this in mind this is the second best meal I've ever had in my life!! (The 1st being a 3 course meal atop the Eiffel Tower- shortly before proposing to my now fiancée) I can offer no higher recommendation for this place it is sublime! The food was simply amazing, the drinks are fantastic and the staff are always friendly and happy to customise cocktails! The price is very reasonable for what level of service you receive, it's certainly a place to go for a nice treat. One slight niggle from my fiancée- her dessert was a deconstructed Eton mess- as it is, an Eton mess is a deconstructed and then reconstructed pavlova, as much as the ingredients were top quality they just don't work as individuals when deconstructed once more! Other than that, as an evening treat it was perfection personified. If you are not convinced try it for yourself.

My husband and I had a three course meal at the restaurant and could not fault the food or service. The staff were attentive and the food was presentable and very tasty.

We especially enjoyed the Bellini cocktails at the electric bar.

I would definatly recommend and be returning soon.

An Incredible menu offered at the Electric Bar and Restaurant meant a family meal was very memorable. The variety of food offered was impressive, as was the whole atmosphere at The Double Tree by Hilton in Lincoln. Friendly, polite and professional service meant all the family enjoyed a 5 course meal followed by cocktails in the Bar afterwards. Food was excellent, views amazing and price tag extremely reasonable. Will definitely be going back to enjoy this exciting restaurant and bar again, have re-booked for next week. A very welcome addition to Lincoln.

Overall I thoroughly enjoyed my evening, my boyfriend and I started off with some classy cocktails and enjoyed sipping on them whilst eyeing up the menu! We went for the £25 5 course set menu which included half a bottle of wine per person. We thought that this was an incredible offer and great value for the money, each course was beautifully presented and tasted equally so. As expected the atmosphere was great and the view was wonderful. My only teeny criticism would be that perhaps some of the staff could have a better understanding of the menu and what it entails, as some of the answers we got from our questions were slightly unclear. But other than that a perfect evening!
