    We had the restaurant week menu. My appetizer of a pear salad was excellent, however my husband's black bean soup was extremely watery. Our entrees of the gnocci and pork chop were excellent, however three quarters of the way through the meal, a fly made itself home on top of my husband's pork chop. Needless to say he didn't finish his meal. We told our wait person and the restaurant was very accommodating - refunding us the cost of the pork chop. The dessert of creme brulee was delicious - just the right crispiness on the top combined with the very smooth blueberry cream.

    We went last minute on Saturday through the open table booking and it was a very nice find. Not your run of the mill menu which was very nice! We had a late lunch/brunch so we weren't too hungry and they were happy to split everything for us. I have always wanted to try chicken and waffles and it was an appetizer and the waffle was delicious! We then split a pear/spinach salad and the ravioli in fig sauce with prosciutto - very good. Topped it off with a nice chocolate cake and coffee. Only complaint was the small selection of wines by the glass otherwise a great night out and we will be back.

    Lexx is our go-to restaurant when catching a movie at the Lexington cinema. I appreciate the better than average wines by the glass, well prepared menu items with quality ingredients (i.e. wild salmon, grass-fed beef, greens). The wait staff is always friendly, knowledgeable and service is quick (which helps making our movie time).

    For me, it allowed the evening to be all about the people I was there to enjoy and not about constant interruptions or mediocre food. The flow of service happened quietly while we continued our conversations. The food arrived fresh, hot, and I highly recommend the smoked onion dip with the sweet potato chips made fresh. It had a comfortable and classic feel. If there were televisions there, I didn't notice them (which is a HUGE plus in my books). And there is an option to sit outside.

    We've been doing lunch here for several years - company department outings twice per year. Menu options enough to please everyone: salads, burgers, fish entées, even a Moroccan stew... nicely varied. Several vegetarian options, which always suits someone in the group. Service has improved over the years. We keep coming back!

    Good food but service was painfully slow. Wait staff was attentive. Order came out with incorrect sides and staff was accomodating and corrected the situation. We did find however that the entire restaurant turned over (including tables arriving after us) in the time. It took for us to have a meal. Make sure you are commutes to a full evening if you go to lexx

    The food was very good, with good prepare time for each course. However, as time went on our server became absent to a greater degree. I noticed that the other tables had attentive servers that appeared about 2-3 times more frequently than our server. I had to ask for our waiter through another waiter to get things going.

    The food was well presented and very tasty. Lots of great flavors and fresh ingredients. We were in a rush due to having a meeting and only had about 45 minutes to spare. Our waitress was excellent at firing the appetizers, delivering the food as it was prepared and having the bill ready immediately. There was no wasted time. Thanks, great job we will definitely be back. My group was made up of restaurant professionals so we really appreciated all the details

    We have eaten here twice and each time we found that the food was decent, but overpriced. I had the "zucchini noodles", a plate of slivered, sauteed zucchini which was well seasoned and served warm. It was tasty, but $18 seemed a lot to pay for a plate of sliced vegetables. Same goes for the $15 burger (which costs even more if you want to add cheese). During both visits the noise level made it difficult to hold a conversation. The wait staff was attentive and friendly. We probably won't return for a third time.

    When the restaurant is 2/3 full the noise level can be deafening. It's hard to carry on a conversation without ending up hoarse. Why can't restaurants add some noise deafening material? This is not a problem with just Lexx, but with most restaurants, especially when there are children or large groups.

    I enjoy Lexx. A well-stocked bar for any cocktail, a decent beer selection, but a relatively slim wine list. Food is always quite good, but not silly. I had their equivalent of a chef salad, and my wife had their pear salad -- both very good. A couple hints: (1) Ask for the blue cheese fries, even if they aren't on the menu; (2) the hummus plate is a great appetizer for the table, and even makes a nice meal.

    Ok for families that might just want to get out of the kitchen (we unfortunately had some rather unruly screamers there to confirm), but both my and my dinner guests felt that we can cook as well or better and that there was nothing special about the food, service or atmosphere that would make us want to return.

    This place needs a new barman. Ordered a Pisco Sour (listed on the menu as one of their specialties). Undrinkable. Replaced it with a margarita. Ditto. The steamed mussels and clams were excellent and very fresh, and very few. The other main courses were also masterfully prepared and presented. The swordfish alas, was overcooked and very dry.

    Dined here on a busy Fri evening. Had gift certificate from previous visit when restaurant apparently lost our order. This time started with apparent mixup in table coverage, but once sorted out, service was good. Food was hit and miss: salads-all excellent. Entrees: mac and cheese (with chicken) excellent--ample serving, rich, flavorful. Pork chop good. The evening's special-grilled mahi mahi -was mediocre at best: overdone, sitting under a gummy apricot sauce and on top of some sort of "black oriental rice" which added little to the presentation. I keep wanting to like Lexx--it is a comfortable space- and have had very good experiences there with lunch, but don't think we will go back again for dinner.

    I have been to Lexx many time and with this visit the staff presented as much friendlier and more willing to interact with the guests reviewing menu items. Our waiter took the time to go over new items on the menu and how well they have been received by previous guests. The food is always good and has been consistent over the 3/4 years that I have been dining there. Staff was attentive without being overbearing. Lexx honored my request of a booth even though our group of 3 had dropped down to two. I enjoy dining at Lexx-it is in a great central location and easy parking-just bring quarters!

    We had a reservation but were given a table near the bar with the loud more bolsterous crowd. This made our conversation a little difficult. I wanted some comfort food and ordered the burger med rare and most of it was cooked more. They were attentive to this and gave us a free desert which was tasty as usual. My dates only complaint was she ate too much. Bottom line great place for fine dining ( the burger is for those wanting simple food like myself). But get a table in the dining room of you want to talk.

    The back of this restaurant just gets too loud when full. Avoid it at times of graduation, etc. That said, the bar seating is the quieter part of the restaurant and we enjoy sitting there. There is a new menu and I missed some of my old favorites, like the Mediterranean stew. I eat here often at lunch and occasionally with family for dinner.
