"Menu changes and is always a good selection. Great drinks and wines. Service always excellent, and reservations usually easy.
One downside after a few different visits...the Chef definitely has a heavy hand with salt - works for somethings but can be overwhelming. I would prefer to add more if I need it.

"Drinks were off the charts good as was the bartender and service in general. Overall i found the place very expensive, especially for Newton dining. I have lived on the South End/Back Bay line for the last 11 years so i am used to paying a premium and was surprised. Seems like a great occasion place but not a bite-at-the-bar place. Again, service was A+ and food was very good. I will go again, especially for the new drink making class."

"We had been to 51 Lincoln once before and had a great experience - it was a fun atmosphere for a random snowy weeknight in February and the food was amazing. We went back last week on a Friday night and the restaurant was full (in a good way) and everyone seemed to be having fun. We had a reservation, and to our surprise were taken downstairs to a different dining room we had no idea existed. This room was in a wine cellar, which could be fun, but there were only four tables and it was eerily quiet. It felt uncomfortable to be having a conversation at a normal volume. It felt very hidden away from the rest of the restaurant, which I guess could be romantic, but in this case it felt like an awkward overflow room.
Our food and service were both great (the homemade bread is AMAZING), so we would definitely go back, but I would make a note on the reservation to be seated upstairs."

"Our first visit to this restaurant with no special instructions given . Initially we were seated in the basement where there are 4 tables and deathly silent! We eat in Boston and Cambridge restaurants frequently and enjoy the ambience of a lively dining room . It was puzzling why we were seated in the basement . I asked we be moved to the upstairs and we were promptly seated in the dining room at an excellent table. Not sure I would go out of my way to dine there again"

"We decided to go to 51 Lincoln at the last minute and with no expectations. It was a surprising and amazing find. Great beer selection and a delicious Scarlet Martini to start the night. Parsnips soup and cole slaw were so good, the best was the Rigatoni Bolognese, no words to describe how smooth it was... We will definitively go back and recommend it to friends."

"The guys had the bolognese which they said was excellent. The women had the cod, not very good. Vanilla ice cream was good, bread pudding was not. For the money, much better restaurants in the area."

"Excellent meal, service and wine...Will gladly return...but initially disappointed when seated in the "new" basement space. Requested to be seated in main dining room and was quickly accommodated."

"We dined early on Friday night due to other commitments. The food and service was excellent and we liked the low noise level of dining early. This is a somewhat special occasion spot since the prices are on the high side. But otherwise it is so good that we wish that we had it near where we live so we could visit frequently."

"I keep going back again and again, they never fail to impress. The food and service continues to excel. The scallops over risotto are a must order if it's offered your night!
Thanks to everyone, keep up the good work!"

"My husband and I were very happy with the food and service during our New Year's Eve dinner here at 51 Lincoln. We very much enjoyed the 5-course tasting menu, and thought that the food got better and better with every course. The perfectly-executed winter beignets were a great finish to the meal. Many of the reviews have said that the restaurant gets noisy when in full-swing, but we had the benefit of dining in the downstairs area, which was much more intimate and isolated from the louder music and chatter of the main dining room.
Thank you for a lovely evening!"

"Good for but bad idea to charge for bread. Chairs are most uncomfortable metal. The bar is best place to eat."
