We tried their Portland Dining Month offering: a salad, skirt steak with spinach and chocolate cake. All delicious and fresh. The restaurant itself isn't very big but they make the most of the space. Listening to other diners who were trying other menu items, it...More

In the heart of Lincoln Center, this is the place for very good regional Italian food and wine, with tables spaced widely enough to allow conversation. Service is professional and friendly. Mangia!!

Lincoln offers some unusual combinations. It's not your typical all American food. It's interesting and delightfully refreshing. We went with a group and everyone enjoyed it.

Simple ingredients. Complex favors. Easy going ambience with elegant interior. Formally trained but talkative staff. Perfect place for an intimate reunion - a quiet conversation. Completely satiating.

Quiet and very comfortable looking, food very carefully prepared, each dish thoughtful combination of ingredients. Some a little too hot or salty for me but the concept of carrot humus or onion rings in bread crumbs or gnocchi with mushrooms all was well conceived

First, my husband and I really wanted to love this restaurant! It was on our list of places we wanted to eat at for almost a year. We finally got a date night, and decided to try Lincoln out. We booked it through Open Table...More
