    Rossi's is good and consistent with everything. Nice ambiance and usually not too difficult to get a table on most nights. Many wines by the glass are fairly priced and the portions are reasonable.....not huge, but certainly enough to fill you up. I always look forward to my dinners when heading to Rossi's!

    the almond-caramel dessert could have had more caramel, the caramel dripped on it was barely noticeable or tastable; an optional whipped creme topping would have made it extraordinary; overall the food was excellent and the server A+.....BDW

    Classy atmosphere, excellent service, really good food! This is one of our favorite restaurants in Lexington. The specials are Always creative & very tempting and their regular menu is vast. Making a decision on what to order is the toughest part of the evening.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2004
    Dined on 7/12/2013
    I should have requested outside seating on my Open Table reservation. Although our reservation was at 6:00- early!- they couldn't seat us outside. There appeared to be tables available but the hostess said the only had 3 servers- I guess they were understaffed? It was a Friday night. The chips with the artichoke dip were stale. The salmon (blackened) was good.

    My husband and I visit Rossi's at least once a month on Sunday's for the brunch and we love it! We have been there for dinner and enjoyed it as well but our favorite is brunch. The staff is always attentive and welcoming. The food is always hot and fresh and delicious! This past time we came was for my husbands first Father's Day and we brought our twins with us, the staff was very accommodating and help set up both high chairs. I absolutely love Rossi's and always suggest it to friends and family for a good time.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 6/15/2013
    The atmosphere was unique and romantic besides the wobbly table. The calamari was tender and flavorful. My grouper was undercooked but overall ok. My husbands nightly special salmon was superb. I don't recommend the apple martini. Overall I have mixed feelings but very nice restaurant.

    My wife and I had a terriffic dining experience Saturday night at Rossi's on Chinoe. I had Grooper, and my wife a pan seared chicken breast. The food was delicious, perfectly prepared and served promptly. They also made excellent Martinis and were generous with the wine by the glass. Unfortunately, the place was nearly deserted at 7:00 on a Saturday night. Maybe because it was Father's Day weekend, maybe because they'd opened their patio and a couple of couples were outside, but all in all, it was a little too quiet for a very good medium-to-high end restaurant. We would certainly go back, and hope that more people will join us on our next visit. It certainly is one of Lexington's hidden gems.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2010VIP
    Dined on 6/1/2013
    This restaurant has been in Lexington for a very long time. However, that does not equate to the fine dining that one would expect when dining at this establishment. Overall, my biggest concern was service and lack of flexibility. Nowadays, most people like to be able to customize the dish of choice to their own tastes (i.e. I would like some extra mushrooms on the side or can you provide a side of that instead of what is offered). However, this restaurant is so rigid, that you get what you get. Excuses like the chef only prepared ahead so many of those sides and I’m sorry, we just can’t do extra mushrooms, because we don’t have enough, etc Service was extremely slow. We did not get to order for about 20 min. Server MIA.

    Rossi's was over priced, items on the menu where not available at 7:30 PM. The wait staff had to be constantly asked for items, bread, refills and the such. The food was greasy and not very good at all. In other words, steer clear of this place unless you are not in a hurry and do not wish to have value for your money.

    It was out first visit and if we lived in Kentucky, it wouldn't be our last. We were here visiting family and wish there was a Rossi's in Maryland. Wonderful place, great food, excellent service and the right vibe without being too cool for your britches. Well done all around. Our family in Lexington will be regulars for sure.

    MothersDay
    Dined on 5/12/2013
    We have gone a few times for the buffet. I feel the buffet is overpriced for what you get. The serving size of the "good" stuff is very small forcing you to go back time and time again for more (in order to get your $$ worth). When being served those tiny servings, it makes you feel bad to keep going back for more. The kids price needs to be re-considered because children eat very little food and for Mother's Day, you can't leave them behind. (:>) Overall the food was good, I will go back, and I do recommend Rossi's to others.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 5/12/2013
    Buffet table was out of several items, replaced slowly and cramped for space with poor lighting. The special meat carving table was next to the bar which was convenient for the server to lean against while talking to the bar tender, drinking from his styrofoam cup and slicing postage size pieces of poor quality meat and placing them on the carving board to cool before serving. The special $26.00 price for the Mothers Day average buffet brunch was ridiculous and embarrassing. Never again!

    We had a great waiter (Joey) who really took care of us. Very personable. Our dishes were good - we had the goat cheese salad, the red snapper special and the beef. The only thing that bothered us a little was the choice of music. Most of the people there were our age (over 45) and the music seemed more like it was chosen for the staff than the patrons. Was not too loud though, which was good. Can't wait until the patio opens!

    Now visiting Rossi's for the 3rd time this year, it has become one of our preferred dining venues for a married couple's "date night." The quality of the food and its preparation have never been in question and our meals have been tasty and properly portioned and presented. In addition, our server's (particularly on the most recent visit) have been personable, attentive, and exactly what we would expect. On a Friday night, the bar area was a bit noisy; however, the din was not too bad from our perspective at a round booth across the room. I often judge the wine list from the quality of the lowest cost bottles and our wine could have passed for one at twice its price in a blind tasting. We'll be returning to Rossi's.
