About cognito

A well-stocked bar of premium spirits at Cognito: a Japanese restaurant in Lincoln

Lincoln's only independent Japanese restaurant

Treat yourself to an expertly crafted cocktail and some indulgent sushi in the heart of Lincoln. Our chefs take a modern approach to authentic Japanese flavour profiles, offering a sophisticated twist on the traditionally informal ‘izakaya’ dining experience.

The Cognito concept brings something entirely new to Lincoln. Join us for Asian-inspired cuisine and delicious cocktails in a luxurious setting, and keep an eye on our website for special events and bottomless brunch dates.

Rooftop Bar with Retractable Roof

Tucked away up a couple of flights of stairs, just off Lincoln high street, is one of the city’s best kept secrets: the rooftop bar. 

With its retractable roof, our terrace provides the perfect setting for a romantic date night or a catch-up with friends, whatever the weather. Browse our extensive drinks menu of signature cocktails and tried-and-tested classics while taking in the view of Lincoln’s iconic skyline. Join our mailing list for updates on special events, live music, and DJ sets. From Monday 2nd October, our Rooftop will be open as a bar on Fridays and Saturdays only until the summer begins.

Sushi and Japanese-style cuisine

Cognito provides the perfect atmosphere for a dinner date, an indulgent lunch break, or just a few drinks with friends. Sink into one of our cosy booths while you sample some sushi, or take a seat at the bar with a cocktail. Our mixologists serve up drinks to suit all tastes. Whether you’re after something flamboyant or something without the smoke and mirrors, our bar staff work with a broad range of quality spirits to quench your thirst.

Book a Table

What to expect at Cognito

We welcome walk-ins, but we recommend booking in advance to guarantee your table, especially for larger parties. Please let us know of any dietary requirements when booking. For groups of eight or more, our chefs require a pre-order three days prior to your reservation.

From 8pm on a Saturday, our resident DJ will be playing. This means that the music will be louder than usual. Please bear this in mind when making a booking on weekend evenings.
