This is a favourite of ours, everything we have tried on the menu is delicious.
It is a restaurant that we have felt safe at during the pandemic as there is a nice patio, inside has high ceilings with well spaced tables and the staff wear masks.

Our impression changed last evening. The manager was wandering around without a mask. I asked her why, and she said she was “too busy” to put one on. While a favourite, I am not sure we will rush back as there are many restaurants who follow good safety protocol.

Great atmosphere, good/great food, terrible service. Super slow, very inconsistent servers and bartenders. It’s amazing when 2 bartenders make a speciality cocktail from the menu and they taste totally different. They definitely need some training. Kitchen is terrible about following food allergy instructions. The manager (blonde woman with the floppy puppy dog ear hair cut) is the worst of all. She doesn’t do a whole lot to assist her staff. Then while her staff is struggling to manager their tables she is at the end of the bar sipping a glass of red wine flirting with 2 guys that were sitting there. It’s always a bad idea for a manager or any staff to sit and drink during business hours but apparently she doesn’t follow that same thought process.

Wow...you lost all credibility , all content in this " review" when you commented on our GMs hairstyle! Your words are bullish and childish. You seriously should be ashamed.

You open up with great atmosphere, great food etc....then the cruel intensity kicks in...

Our kitchen is well trained and they strive for excellence every shift every day..I would put them up against any restaurant in our wonderful state.....Perhaps a server entered the incorrect content into the POS system..

Our GM was off duty BTW...She was enjoying a glass of wine purchased by a customer who was impressed by her outstanding service.Our assistant manager was on the floor working at that time.

And yes, perhaps one of our craft cocktails tasted a little different. A little to much of an ingredient etc...If there is a slight variation in flavor, simply ask for another..Our staff is highly trained in taking care of all customers no push back ever,,,anyone that chooses our doors we always want to exceed their expectations.

Your critical words about our GM put me over the top..So so far out of line.

We have stayed open during this difficult time and continued too serve our community , Many business haven't been that fortunate...LYNQ has gone over and above in order to make our customers feel welcomed and safe in our environment

I have never responded to a review like this ever...However, under the current circumstances with months of limited business, work force in our industry have difficulties making ends meet , many restaurants closing, bankruptcy exploding , evictions beginning to occur etc etc....and thren your words...making fun of a dedicated professional is unacceptable..
Please choose another establishment to poke fun at...we will do fine with out your business.
Sincerely.
Team LYNQ

Do not be deceived by the location in a strip mall of this incredible gourmet chic restaurant! andth...soft upscale lighting, hip decor, and brilliant use of space. Somehow they have taken this unique space and created a variety of groupings that give the diner of feeling of exclusivity and privacy while being in an open concept space. Lynq does all this and more! It's also difficult to find a place that gives you a feeling of warmth and elegance at the same time like this place does. Their menu is crafty and would satisfy the picky eater or the gourmet palate and boast terrific vegan options. Somehow they have found a way to create something for everyone while maintaining high gourmet standards. We tried the ahi serviche which was bite for bite the best we've had around. The presentation of an ample serving in a large martini glass dramatically garnished with fried plantains to scoop with was delicious and innovative. We also tried the "shrimpcargo" which was a perfection of crunchy bread crumbs and infused with intense garlic flavor ( not too much)with our local fresh shrimp. We then moved on to a very inexpensive giant bowl of edamame. We followed this with tempura battered calamari with a surprise of fresh green beans mixed in and 2 absolutely yummy dipping sauces --traditional marinara and their very own citrus caper dipping sauce which is our favorite. We couldn't stop there. We devoured the ahi nachos which were beautifully presented and each nacho was a bite of a magical blend of flavors with the very best fresh tuna. The menu here is creative and ambitious and going to be so fun to explore! The bartender Matthew could not have been more friendly or inviting and his recommendations did not disappoint. The house scotch on the rocks is from Inverness Scotland and it was a pleasant surprise especially for happy hour. We were stunned and impressed by the quality of Appetizer choices and the ample pour of scotch during their happy hour which is 4-6. I don't think there's a place anywhere around that can compare to Lynq! Their prices are more than reasonable for what they put on your plate and their staffing is attentive, welcoming, and informed. The owners could not be more customer focused. What a smash hit they have on their hands and how lucky we are in Fort Myers Beach to have this beautiful place to frequent. They even have a secret garden and outdoor bar area. Please hurry to this place,ask for Matthew at the bar, and tell them Cathy from New York sent you. Heck, I'll probably be there I have so much more to try!!

Jennifer, Dan, Keil & Olivia are all the best bartenders/servers. They are fun, prompt, and a joy to be around. Went for happy hour - stayed for the sushi! Highly recommend.
