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 seems like chef Jenn Louis has a hit on her hands!

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.

We went with another couple and had a pleasant time. The octopus appetizer was sublime but several of the other dishes were so heavily salted that none of the other flavors came through. Don't know if they were having an off night because we had heard such good things about the food. Not sure we'll go back.

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.

Really enjoyed the food at experience at Lincoln Restaurant. The starters were amazing, we loved the calamari. The entrees also were excellent and we had to sample the desserts. The owner of the restaurant came out and spoke with her. We loved the passion she puts into the restaurant. Don't miss this place.

Celebrated our 2 year wedding anniversary with my wife last night. Quiet, elegant ambiance likely due to the fact that it was the Tuesday after Memorial Day weekend. Friendly, prompt service upon sitting down to order our drinks and appetizers. My wife got the Spaccatelli with beef tallow and loved it. I got the King Salmon with snails, basmati rice,... More

The gnocchi was little clumps of hard dough. I asked the waiter if there was something wrong with this serving, but he said the cook intends it to be al dente and that is the way it should be. He took it away without question and offered to bring something else. We were told about some special dishes off the... More

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 and were seated right away. The restaurant is beautiful, but the rap music was a... More
