The food here is delicious, the service is good too! The decor is interesting and the restaurant is much larger than it first appears. I recommend the butternut squash soup and the chicken pot pie.

I'm not sure what to say, it was such a mixed bagged. The hostess that greeted us was a bit rude and acted like she was inconvenienced by our need to be seated. Our waitress was pleasant, but not really attentive. This was the Sunday...More

More of a bar than a restaurant...it was loud and the entrees were hor d'oeuvres-sized and nothing special. The crowd at the bar sure seemed to enjoy the place but the diners had difficulty hearing their companions across the table.

Hit Lincoln for lunch and enjoyed it thoroughly. Good service and food with a major buzz of excitement. A bit loud, but it works. Enjoyed the southwest chicken salad.

This was a great find around the corner from our hotel. The food was good the service was attentive, and the energy was high. A nice dining experience that is sure to please just about anyone, but probably not a place to bring kids.

Hi there - unfortunately we don't have the space in our restaurant to seat 26 people at one table. For a party that large we would have to book it as a private event in one of our back rooms as Anthony mentioned above. There... More

Hi, I can't answer you specifically, but I think that they are very accommodating to their patrons, so I think it's worth asking. You can always walk out if they address your son's needs. Good luck!

They are very responsive, I would call them and ask. Those allergies are nothing to fool around with ( as you know).

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.
