Lindey's has been consistently voted one of Columbus' top restaurants for the past 32 years, and has been featured in the Washington Post, USA Today, the New York Times, Gourmet Magazine and the book "As the Tables Turn" by Sue Doody & Michael Rosen. <br /><br />Lindey's is a high-energy, white tablecloth restaurant serving the finest American cuisine in an upper east side New York bistro setting.

"My family and I had dinner at Lindey's and were not disappointed in either food or the service. Our only disappointment was there seems to be little or no communication between the hostess on the outside patio and the hostess in the inside dining room. Otherwise, the food was excellent."

"Albeit the ambiance was bit loud for my taste but the food was excellent. All four members of my family had the prime rib which had been recommended. We were not disappointed. All of our orders were cooked to perfection. I would go back there in a heart beat - especially for the prime rib."

"My wife and our guest had dinner at the Casbah and were not disappointed in the food or service. I had the Halibut which was prepared to perfection. My wife had the sword fish and our guest at the grilled pork-chop all of which were superbly prepared. When we return to Pittsburgh, we will definitely go back and it was on outstanding dining experience."
