Through Open Table my wife and I scheduled an Anniversary dinner for midweek. I called early to make special request and at no time was I told that: 1. A painter would be blocking main entrance 2. Tarps would be spread everywhere at entrance hallway....More

Excellent service: professional, gracious, just attention enough without hovering. Cocktails: excellent, good variety, creative without being cutesy, all priced at $12. Ambience: grown-up but not formal, comfortable without being too casual, small-ish dining room so noise level low and cheerful. Food: On its face, menu...More

A real treat. Excellence all around from the moment we sat down. The server was friendly and knowledgeable and helpful and the food was outstanding down to the double patty hamburger. Don’t miss it!

I had great service. The greens salad with pistachios was very nice. The filet cooked just the way I like it. Don’t forget to get a dish with crispy country ham.

Absolutely the best food and drinks I’ve had in Lexington, ever. We were there for New Years, with a limited prix-fix menu. We had the pork chop and the filet, and both were just perfect. Perfectly cooked, presented, and the sauces, sides and desserts (and...More

Glorious experience... the food, cocktails, bourbon list (20 yr pappy), and service was all spot on! A gem in Lexington, if not the whole Midwest. Their spin on the dishes was fantastic. Sweet, spice, bitter all dance across your palette while the textures were amazing...More
