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."

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.

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.

Lincoln has an excellent happy hour deal. $6 selection of drinks, and most of their shared plates are $6-8 as well. I came here with two girlfriends and we all had drinks, and shared the truffle deviled eggs, the duck sausage pastry, the prosciutto mac and cheese, and the ginger/honey bread. The truffle deviled eggs were especially amazing and just the right amount of truffle balance without being overpowering. The mac and cheese was amaaaaazing. I had to stop myself from eating the entire portion alone. It was creamy and cheesy with that hint of grease and salt from the prosciutto- yum! The only reason I'm not giving 5 stars was because our service was appallingly slow. Like... took 30 minutes to bring our checks slow. Would definitely go back for full dinner though!

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.

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.

Really tasty and interesting small plates, great for sampling and sharing. A bit loud. Attentive service.
