The Julep Cup
Julep CupThe Julep cup is probably one of Lexington's best kept secrets. It is fabulous and I never have a bad experience there. It's always great.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMWe love going to the JulepWe love going to the Julep Cup for brunch, lunch or dinner. The fact that it's 105 miles (1-way) from home is the only reason we don't eat there at least once a week. Instead it's a great weekend get-away destination.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMMy husband and I ate at theMy husband and I ate at the Julep Cup due simply to reservation availability on Open Table and the reviews from Trip Advisor. We love trying new restaurants but can have pretty high standards when it comes to food quality and service. The Julep Cup came through on both fronts. I had one of the best filets I've ever had in a restaurant, witha tasty wedge salad to start. My husband had the double pork chop with an amazing apple and bacon slaw that left him wanting to lick the plate. He also enjoyed his bourbon beer that was listed as a specialty. We wanted to try dessert, but were simply too full. The atmosphere was relaxing and the inviting. We would definitely return again.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMwe were in town for Rolex,we were in town for Rolex, this was a great last minute find! Live music, great service, and wonderful mint Juleps!!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMThe table where we were firstThe table where we were first seated had some awful lighting above. Very dark and couldn't see to read the menu! we were then moved to another location where the lighting was much better. Service was very good. Shrimp and Grits GREAT but the expensive cut of steak at Medium was dry and tasteless. Ceasar salad was nice and the bread great. I have been to Julep Cup before and have had good table, good food and good service.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMIt's the BestI'm so glad I have the chance to recommend The Julep Cup. Once again, everything was perfect for a wonderful romantic evening. The food was delicious and beautifully placed. The owner was delightful...came over and talked with us, not just about our dinner selections, but about various things. Our wait staff personnel was so friendly and anxious to help us in any way possible...and they did.
We've been to The Julep Cup since it opened, and it just gets better and better. We recommend you go for any meal...brunch, lunch, dinner...the menu is well planned and great...the opener was hot homemade rolls...Yum!4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good food Personal touches GVery good food
Enjoyed it4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMTry it, you'll like it.Food was actually a 4.75 Star rating(but that wasn't a choice on the survey). Had the asparagus been cooked just a little more, the whole evening would have been a 5+ Star experience. Atmosphere was great, food was superbly delicious, the service was top notch from beginning to end and the New York quality jazz entertainment by the Gail Wynters duo made me stay and have an after dinner drink, which I ordinarily would not have done. Truly the first upscale place where I can actually say I got more than my money's worth. Highly recommend you try this spot for that next special occasion with that special someone.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellentI often eat out in Lexington and elsewhere. I hadn't been to The Julep Cup at night in years and it was the best meal I've had out in Lexington in a long time.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMBrunch at The Julep Cup onBrunch at The Julep Cup on Easter was wonderful.

The food was very good and even though it was clear that they aren't used to accommodating young children (I had my 9 month old with us). They did everyone they could to make us comfortable. Great service and loved the live harpist.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding!!We had a special occasion and the staff at Julep Cup accommodated our every request! The food was delicious and plentiful and our seating was private ( even though we were not in the back room as our group was a bit larger). Will definitely recommend to others!!3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding dinner for 2Once again our expectations were exceeded. Our server was extremely friendly and knowlegable about the menu. We both tried the pork chop with blue cheese and applewood smoked slaw with sweet potato gnoochi, it was simply melt in your mouth delicous. Could not have had a better dinner, very quiet enabling good conversations. This restaurant is truely a hidden gem.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMwill be back!Made our reservation through open table, we showed up 15 minutes early and they sat us immediately.
