Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Visited as a group of 6 and we all had an amazing night, the whole experience was lovely from the wine, food and service. In our group we had one vegetarian and one pescatatrian and there were no issues adapting the menu, they even incorporated...a fish alternative on one course rather than just offering the pescatatrian the veggie option. We opted for the wine cflight and again they were accomodating, one done not liking red wine was provided a white wine but again, not lazily just replaced but adapted to a different course where it would suit. Each dish and wine choice was expertly and passionately explained, we had questioned the cost of wine pairing but actually, it was worth it! The food was good and beautifully presented. If I was to offer some constructive feedback, a couple of courses for my taste lacked a bit if seasoning (ravioli in particular) but overall enjoyed the variety and combinations. We were full! Could have done with something to freshen us up at course 5, the plate offered was tasty but too heavy by that point in the meal.More

Well, what a fantastic restaurant. It was well worth the physical effort to get there! The front of house staff were very friendly and helped us with our menu and wine choices, explaining the dishes with great enthusiasm. We very much enjoyed the 4 course...menu. My favourite course was the silky smooth Jerusalem artichoke veloute with mushrooms and a very well cooked scallop. The slight smokiness was a lovely addition to the dish. It was so incredibly yummy. Although, both the prawn ravioli and sea bass dishes were an absolute delight too. The pistachio tart with dark chocolate sorbet was a very lovely end to the excellent meal. If we're ever in Lincoln again we will definitely return. Maybe the 6 course menu next time, but will have to skip lunch beforehand.More

Visited as a table of 2 for my Wife’s birthday recently and both chose the 6 Course Tasting Menu, with 5 glass wine flight. The food from Gavin and the kitchen team, along with the service from Samantha and her front of house team was...impeccable. Knowledge of their menus by all staff was exceptional. How this place has not provided Lincoln with its first Michelin Star is beyond me.More

Incredible jewel of food artistry. All six courses of the tasting menu were clever and elegant. We had the choice of four or six courses and were glad we did six. Thoughtful wine list and a good bar.

An incredible dining experience. I can't rate this place highly enough. We had the 5 course tasking menu and matching 3 glasses of wine. Beautiful flavours and presentation, unobtrusive but high quality service and a lovely setting. The pricing for food of this quality is...actually quite low.More

Every time we go here the food is amazing. The service is exceptional. Fantastic. Yes, it's pricey but it's worth the cost. Never once left thinking "that was expensive", always just thought "what a superb evening" and that's exactly how it should be. Nice one...Jew's House.More
