Bustling, trendy New American spot inspired by Lincoln with a floor of pennies & big white chair.- Google
"Kale salad is light and fresh, though chopped into lawn clipping-like oblivion."
"Not a bad happy hour option if you work in the area."

One of my favorite brunch spots in DC. They have an unlimited drinks option and tend to keep the glasses full. If you're starving there is the immediate option of omelets and waffles (both delicious) or you can order off the menu. For dinner the portions tend to be on the small side and expensive for what you get so I would recommend it more for brunch or lunch. Because the floor is covered in pennies, the restaurant tends to get very loud (especially at brunch when there's also a DJ) so not a great place for a date.

Overall, a bad experience on a Monday night. Food is expensive. The prices are not aligned with the small portion sizes. For example a 1/4 glass of wine was $14.00, a bowl of brussel sprouts was $10. The "small plate experience" is a unique concept, but I don't see any advantage to it. If you are going to use small plates, at least fill them up! The food tasted good (Except for the red pepper bisque) and it looked nice on the plate but ALL food was lukewarm including the soup. Food did not arrive so that I could eat at the same time as the person I was dining with. I received my vegetables 10 minutes after I received my steak. We met three different food runners who were literally running to the table. It seemed like I was in the midst of a bunch of confusion. Server did not deliver the food (which is fine), but she never did a "check back" to see if we were satisfied with the food. Restaurant is very loud and dark although the decor is nice. Lots of improvement needed!

I visit DC very often to spend time with college friends and catch up with old colleagues of mine. I wanted to try a place I had never been, this is a small gem. I really loved the ambience and setup. The staff were very attentive and polite. Food was great, would visit again on my next trip.

Great ambiance, great food, a tad expensive. This is a great place to come with a bunch of foodie friends. Although a little loud inside, it has a really cool look and feel, with pennies creating the whole floor and a serious americana vibe. Food presentation is unmatched here, and fancy drinks are definitely on par.

Very slow service. Indifferent waitstaff. If course the service was crappy, they had a 20% gratuity built in, so there was no need to try to provide decent service. We had no choice but to pay a premium price for bad service. Overpriced dishes. Not sure how this place gets positive reviews

Absolutely love everything here... The food the drinks the staff the atmosphere.... Aaron and Erin behind the bar making the best rail splitters while im eating potpie has become a regular thing for me.

Lincoln is a must restaurant to eat, even if you are visiting DC. The atmosphere is sophisticated, elegant but also on the artsy side with the penny floor and the flag room with the mason jar lighting. My top choice dishes would be for dinner: the squash tater tots with goat cheese, the Shrimp & Grits with Scallions, Bell Peppers, Bacon and Fumet. For dessert, the sweet Potato Cheesecake with Candied Walnuts, Persimmon.

Had a great happy hour here! My sister and I each enjoyed a couple glasses of prosecco and ordered a few of their excellent happy hour food specials. The mac and cheese was some of the best I've had - very rich and creamy, with a crispy top. We also tried the smoked salmon and the bacon deviled eggs. All the deviled eggs I've ever had have been cut lengthwise, but at Lincoln they cut them through the middle allowing more room to stuff them with the delicious filling. We ordered some brussels sprouts so we wouldn't feel quite so guilty about loading up on comfort food, but the brussels sprouts were also quite an indulgence. Not sure what was on them, but they tasted very rich and were absolutely delicious. Service was quick and friendly, and unlike many other happy hour places it was quiet and not too crowded. I will definitely be back.
