Dined here with a large group. Meals were upscale and delicious. The portions were nicely paired - large salad and small protein with sides. All seemed pleased with their food. Would dine here again.

This modern restaurant has a tempting array of small and larger plates. The selection is diverse with plenty of vegetables and salads on offer. Service is efficient and friendly. Most dishes worked well. The beef, the Brussels sprouts, the beet salad, and the scallops were outstanding. The Bison tartare was served as tiny sandwiches in macaroons, innovative but strange, didn't... More

We throughly enjoyed our dinner here. The atmosphere was great, but the restaurant was still quiet enough that we could carry on a conversation. 1 appetizer and 2 small plates was plenty for us for dinner.

I was in D.C. for a training seminar that began on Valentine's Day. A group of us decided to go out amongst the couples and have a good time. Even though it was a last minute request, the restaurant squeezed us in as long as we promised to be out by a certain time. They even decorated our table with... More

We came to Lincoln by double recommendation and we were not disappointed. Shawn our server not only guided us through the small plate menu with ease but he was very knowledgeable with the wine( a big plus in our book) The dishes came out and one after the next we devoured and could not wait to move to the next....

What a great night. Small plates make it possible to try out many different dishes and share. Service is great but not pushy. We enjoyed cocktails, fries, brussels sprouts, steak. Would definitely come back and try out the many other dishes on the menu.

We and another couple visited Lincoln Restaurant in downtown DC on a fairly quiet Sunday evening - on Lincoln's Birthday - to check out their Valentine's weekend tasting menu: 3 ($45) or 5 ($55) courses. The ambient noise level was medium - a bit of a buzz but we could still easily make out conversations. Service was somewhat leisurely but... More

I lived in DC for years and was never jazzed by the restaurant scene. This trip turned my old expectations upside down. The food at Lincoln was good and it's a great place for a family or crowd with a variety of tastes and ages. In fact, the mix of guests was really refreshing, especially in DC where things can...

This place was a delightful 'date night' for my husband and I during our family trip to DC. Looks like it caters to a younger crowd, but we saw a mix of millennials, some couples, and a few families as well. It was right across from the hotel where we were staying, so after a long day of walking, crossing... More

Description
From the spirit of freedom in artistic creation, liberation from culinary mediocrity, and emancipation from the ordinary, LINCOLN is an expression of artistic collaborations in gastronomy, mixology and design. Savor our seasonal American small plate menu crafted from fresh ingredients supplied by local & regional farms. LINCOLN pays tribute to one of our greatest US Presidents, with nods to many of his favorite foods including oysters, gingerbread and chicken pot pie. If you’re thirsty for cocktails that are truly one-of-a-kind, our barkeeps, have created one of the city’s freshest bar programs highlighted by mason jars featuring infused bourbons and DC's first moonshine-list served in antique-style copper cups. In warm weather months enjoy our patio offering panoramic views of DC’s urban landscape. Original paintings and a distinctive interior design by homegrown pop artist, Maggie O’Neill make LINCOLN a feast for the senses at Lunch, happy hour, dinner or after dark.
