This place never disappoints!! Very consistent! Our family went out to Coles on Saturday for dinner and it was absolutely the best meal! The service was superb, the wine amazing and the food fantastic! I had the NYStrip, which is by far the best in Lexington. Other family members had the filets and bone in filet equally as good (I prefer strips). We also had the creme brûlée for desert which is amazing. The atmosphere is wonderful! Not too loud as Malone’s and Tony’s. If I am spending the money to go out, it is at Coles. Worth every penny!!

The food was amazing. Love the atmosphere. New York strip steaks were huge. I had the filet. Cooked perfectly, large and delicious. I was disappointed that they had removed scallops from the menu, because they were to die for, but the filet made a nice recovery. My favorite restaurant in Lexington.

Tried several restaurants during Lexington's "Restaurant Week" and Coles was a star! The entre was swordfish - cooked perfectly (not easy for swordfish) and the sauce was amazing. Service was very good.

After a bad experience here years ago I had avoided Coles until my wife chose it for our last night of Restaurant Week. Wonderful offerings ( beef shoulder and swordfish) and fantastic service. They really put their best foot forward, no small portions or halfway presentations. We will be returning soon.

We spend many summer months here in Lexington and have been to many restaurants. This is the one that we love to come to and have dubbed it our MOST FAVORITE in Lexington. It is consistently great from the service, to the ambience, and mostly to the food that is always cooked to perfection. The restaurant staff is warm, welcoming, attentive and wonderful. We have never been anything less than pleased every time we are here. Thank you Coles!
