Angela, thanks for the review! We went and loved the food. Our service was a little spotty, but the food was very good. That English pea soup was divine!
I think Varasanos is good. Seemed unnecessary to dump on them in this article.
Eh, don't take it too personally. Snark is pretty much the Lingua Franca of the internet, for better or worse.
Effusive praise is also met with skepticism, given the not-at-all-uncommon tactic of PR folks astroturfing.
Why the snark over one positive review? What the hell is your beef against this place? Go - don't go - I really don't care what you do. Dont knock it til you've tried it, dude.

Pretty much the best comment I have ever read hahhahaahahahahah
Cue: Blade Runner
Holden: Come in. Sit down.
Leon: Care if I talk? I'm kind of nervous when I take tests.
Holden: Uh, just please don't move.
Leon: Oh, sorry. I already had an IQ test this year, I don't think I've ever had one of these-
Holden: Reaction time is a factor in this, so please pay attention. Now, answer as quickly as you can.
Holden: One-one-eight-seven at Unterwasser.
Leon: That's the hotel.
Leon: Where I live.
Holden: Nice place?
Leon: Yeah, sure I guess-- that part of the test?
Holden: No, just warming you up, that's all.
Leon: Oh. It's not fancy or anything.
Holden: You're in a desert, walking along in the sand when all of the sudden-
Leon: Is this the test now?
Holden: Yes. You're in a desert walking along in the sand when all of the sudden you look down-
Leon: What one?
Leon: What desert?
Holden: It doesn't make any difference what desert, it's completely hypothetical.
Leon: But how come I'd be there?
Holden: Maybe you're fed up, maybe you want to be by yourself, who knows? You look down and you see a tortoise, Leon, it's crawling towards you-
Leon: Tortoise, what's that?
Holden: Know what a turtle is?
Leon: Of course.
Holden: Same thing.
Leon: I've never seen a turtle -- But I understand what you mean.
Holden: You reach down, you flip the tortoise over on its back Leon.
Leon: Do you make up these questions, Mr. Holden, or do they write them down for you?
Holden: The tortoise lays on its back, its belly baking in the hot sun beating its legs trying to turn itself over but it can't, not without your help, but you're not helping.
Leon: What do you mean I'm not helping?
Holden: I mean, you're not helping. Why is that Leon? -- They're just questions, Leon. In answer to your query, they're written down for me. It's a test, designed to provoke an emotional response. -- Shall we continue? Describe in single words, only the good things that come in to your mind about... your mother.
Leon: My mother?
Leon: Let me tell you about my mother...

Not so, Daniel. I'm simply a regular citizen who happens to have a personal opinion different from yours. I am sincere in my positive comments. I have no affiliation whatsoever with Linton's nor do I represent anyone other myself.

I found the place delightful. The artisan cheese plate and warm olives were a lovely compliment to one another before dinner. The cheese plate came with little surprise bites of other tasty tidbits.For dinner, I had a delicious pasta with shrimp and my husband had a perfectly prepared Grouper. Our service was excellent and friendly. We were there on an extremely hot day and they welcomed us in prior to our reservation time. We were seated at a table by the window and enjoyed drinks and hors d'oeuvres at our leisure. If folks had a bad experience here they should re-visit and give it another chance. Although, this place really may not be for everyone. A steak and potatoes place it isn't. The food is thoughtfully and artfully prepared. If it's a huge, filling meal you want this isn't the place. If it's an artful dining experience with palate-pleasing food combinations in creative and beautiful presentations, you should go.
I ate there last week. Unimpressed. Horrible service. Overpriced for what you get and my pasta dish was warm at best. Same thing about the arugula salad. High price for few leaves of lettuce. Save your money and go to the other awesome restaurants in midtown. Love the gardens - we are members -but we won't be back to Lintons.
^ Immature racist troll
^ fucking dumbass
I didn't know male prostitutes hung out back there.
I got the blowjob of my life right behind this place.
I had the $8 Arugula salad. There were maybe 8 arugula leaves in the bowl along with some cheese and dressing. It was tasty but insulting. Not recommended if you're spending your own money.

I got hold of some Riverview Farms pork chops.
They were actually better medium rare than medium--almost rib-eye like. Medium they just tasted like a pork chop.
^ likes well done pork chops. By the way a good quality pork chop should be served medium. Pam stick to the Waffle House.
Eat here if you want undercooked pork chops and an owner that doesn't care about your health.
