We visited this restaurant in the evening and other than some confusion in the reservation, it was fantastic. Our waiter Tyler was great, very attentive and knowledgeable on the menu and best choices. The service was excellent and the food was delivered hot and in a very timely manner - not rushed, but also not piled on top of appetizers,... More

Went with a large group for a dinner outing and was amazed at all of the choices and the freshness of each offering. Salads and mini crab cakes were a flavorful fresh start, followed by salmon, beef fillets (cooked to a perfect medium - still juicy) and sweet potato casserole that could have been desert. Fresh Veggies and fruit to... More

I live near Malone's and often take guests there, as it is reliably very good food. The atmosphere is nice; the service is impeccable. Try the Lexingtonian Salad and Coach Cal's Chicken -- both divine! I don't think I've had a bad meal experience there.

Malone's is the hands down BEST RESTAURANT in Lexington!! There is no second place. The meat is scrumptious (only the finest is brought in). The service is a clinic of how perfection in service is performed. Pricing is very appropriate for the food quality and scrumptious flavor - and that service!!!! Try the fried Calamari appetizer, marinated mushrooms as a... More

My mother was in town visiting from Northern Ky and I wanted to treat her to a local establishment. Malone's did not disappoint! The steaks were perfect, the baked potatoes were huge and the service was spot on!! We came a little bit before the typical dinner rush as to avoid the crowd which I think helped make the meal...

If you want to go to a great restaurant go to Malones. The service is great. You usually have two servers taking care of you. The atmosphere is that of a private club. The Lexitonian salad is the best. The food overall is excellent. Great place for special events too.

Malone's restaurant is most likely the best place in the area. The food quality, staff and service is second to none. We ate here multiple nights on our trip. Why search around if it's all offered here. Great bourbon selection too. Ask for Aaron to be your server, you'll appreciate his commitment to service.

I found getting seating on a Friday night a challenge but once sat, the wait staff was attentive. The food was good but the Lexingtonia salad was Wonderful. An endless bowl of crisp greens, tomatoes, bacon and tossed with the house creamy herb dressing was an experience worth repeating.

This place was wonderful. We asked the front desk where me and my boyfriend could go for dinner. They suggested this place and even gave us a card for priority seating and a free dessert. We arrived and there was a 50-60 minute wait. We showed the card and immediately got seated. After we ordered our drinks they brought our... More

Dined with our very special friends tonight at Malone's Palomar, service was a bit scattered, appetizers very good, entrees for 3 perfect, my first steak (ordered medium) came out medium well to well no pink. Second steak raw cold red center, third was right. I'm at home now eating alone not wanting to burden friends while I enjoyed my meal.... More
