    Service was exceptional; food was tasty; filling brunch choice and also a breakfast buffet. Large window seating next to a busy street so either you can watch people go by or if you want privacy ask for a different seating location. Would recommend to try it.

    We arrived there for one of our two reservations. The first one we arrived at 8:45pm, we sat, the restaurant was maybe 30% full and we waited for over 30 minutes for small meals...one soup and two salads. The place was quiet because all diners were waiting for meals for long periods of time The second res. we cancelled as timing was questionable about our arrival back from Louisville and the Derby with our bus tour group...just as well as no sooner did we arrive (9:20pm), we were about to be seated and were told that it would be 30 minutes before our food would arrive, after the order would be taken. 40% full maybe. We walked away. Servers were complaining about being slammed...really? Maybe earlier but at 9:20? Didn't see it.

    Nice restaurant, however I was not happy with my experience this time. I came to eat before a concert with my kid and my friend and her kid. We arrived at 615 and ordered our food in a timely manner. However our food did not arrive until 710 then to make matters worse our children's food didnt arrive when the other food did. After 15 min and speaking to the manager we all finally got our food delivered. We ended up missing part of our concert because of this. Also we didnt get refills even though we asked for them. The food wasn't bad but the situation just kinda put a damper on our night.

    We came for brunch and just missed the cutoff. My wife wanted to leave when the waiter was stern that breakfast items can no longer be ordered. The director of food services was much more flexible and willing to make pancakes & an omelet for her. He really turned things around. The food was delicious! Thanks!

    Our service was very slow. We were seated and didn't order for another 40 minutes because our waiter never came back. It was during a UK home basketball game, but 3 hours before tipoff. They also put us all the way in the back in a room full of UK people, so no view of Triangle Park as advertised and we even asked to be seated at a 2 top table with park views but was told no. I can't say that I'll eat there again unless I'm staying at the hotel and have no time for anywhere else. I thought it was separate from the hotel by the description but it's not. Could have ordered the same menu off room service. The food was ok. My brisket was a little dry but I was afraid to ask for more sauce because of the slow service.

    I expect the restaurant to be a fine dining place, unfortunately it was nothing more than the Hotel's breakfast area buffet room. It was not ugly, but neither special. The food was OK but nothing special. If you want BBQ sauce from Kroger on your pork chop them this is the place for you. The waiters were unprofessional. They looked like the crew in charge of the "continental breakfast". We were having ourvalentinesdate and were not happy at all with the place. Please avoid if you are looking for quality.

    My wife and I went here on Valentine's Day and it wasn't something to write home about. The food was alright, I did enjoy the hot brown, but she wasn't a fan of her food and we had to ask for bread. The waiter was nice but was too focused on one table and ignored the rest of his tables for the most part. It's an attempt at high class but they may want to leave the ketchup bottles off every table.

    This was a terrible experience and we will never return. I don't believe I have ever went to a "fine dining" restaurant that had laminated menus similar to a Denny's. We arrived at 5:15 and did not receive our meals for 45 minutes. During this time our waiter only checked in once and that was to say that our food was coming out shortly....and then we waited another 15 minutes. Once the food arrived it was incredibly underwhelming. My wife's chicken was overcooked and chewy and I had the Tuna steak which was supposed to be medium rare, but arrived well done and flavorless. Our meal was $70 and I have had significantly better food for 1/3 of the price at a chain restaurant. Everyone I know will hear how bad this experience was.

    We went to the Hyatt for their game day buffet, but they changed to a restricted menu. We didn't want bar food and the burgers we had weren't up to Sawyer's standards. Why am I saying this? Well. If you want a nice game day menu, come to the Triangle Grill. Yes, there is a limited choice, but with salad and wine, you can enjoy a delightful meal before the game. As for "vibrant bar scene," "hot spot," or "gem," I don't know. We picked Triangle Grill because it has good food, is close to Rupp and convenient, and they take reservations so we don't have to wait in line.

    We arranged this restaurant for our Daughter's college Graduation, and we could not have been more pleased! From the fabulous wine list to the amazing and delicious food choices, and excellent service, our party of 9 was completely taken care of!! The service and food were so great that we came back after the graduation ceremony to eat again later that night at the bar!!! What fun! We all were able to sample 2 entrees or appetizers and try a few different martinis - SO GOOD! Thank you all!

    We had an early reservation for a big concert across the street at Rupp. We were seated promptly, and got a window view, which is always nice on an event night. Great people watching. The food was great, but we did overhear the waiter telling people seated only 10 minutes later that their entre could take 45 minutes! The restaurant was not full. I think the kitchen was also slammed trying to serve concert-goers in the Big Blue Martini lounge, w/in the Hilton. The only negative was the temperature. The restaurant opens into the hotel lobby. It is a wide opening. Due to the concert check-in traffic, the front door of the hotel was effectively wide open for hours! I would guess that the temperature was in the high 50s or low 60s. Too cold!

    We attend UK basketball games at Rupp and an 8:00pm tipoff provided a perfect opportunity for a nice dinner before the game. A quick check with OpenTable revealed we could get a table. I did. We arrived early intending to wait in the bar, but they asked did we want to go ahead and be seated. We did. They offered a menu of game day specials; we both selected the 8oz ribeye. They had a nice wine selection and we began a delightful evening with a glass. Our steaks were perfectly medium rare and flavorful. The broccoli was nicely steamed. The service was great and we enjoyed our dinner. As we left, we went ahead and made reservations for brunch before the next home game.

    We stayed at the Hilton while we were in Lexington for UK basketball game. It was a 12:30 game so we made a reservation at the Triangle Grille for brunch before the game. It was busy...mostly because it's such a convenient place to dine before a game. The food was very average hotel breakfast food....omelet station, pastries, fruit, waffles, etc...

    We had a pretty good dinner here. I had the filet mignon, and my wife had the catfish. My dish was excellent, perfectly cooked and very tasty. Hers was average at best. The catfish was fried like a country fried steak, and the Charleston rice was like something out of a Chef Boyardee can. We also ate breakfast here two days in a row. The breakfast bar is top-notch. Everything you could ask for including omelets cooked to order. If I was staying at the Hilton, I would probably eat the dinner here again, just because the dinner choices nearby are limited. I would definetly eat the breakfast.

    The four of us had a very nice dinner, but nothing paricularly memorable that would encourage us to recommend this restaurant above many others where we've dined. The server was rather "overbearing" and apparently felt obligated to explain to us how to respond to the check when he presented it (i.e., "leave your credit card, or cash with tip, or sign with your room number"). We found that rather insulting.

    Never in my life have I had such bad service. Luis was our server and he was clearly not interested in taking care of our business dinner party. We were literally the ONLY table in the restaurant and we were still more than he could handle. Our plates were left on the table, wine glasses empty (after we had to beg for a wine menu), etc. The worst part is that he made an automatic $120 from the tip because we were a party of six people. I will never go back again. How can the Hilton stand for such poor service.

    Nice atmosphere and our waitress was very attentive, but I think there is better food in Lexington for the price than what we had on our visit. The duck was very good, & I liked all the side items I tried: asparagus, sweet potato souffle, risotto. But I was unimpressed with the trout & the lamb. We had a great bread pudding for dessert. But the menu called it white chocolate cranberry bread pudding, but what we were served was plain bread pudding. It may have a nice view of the park once the construction is done at the park, but the restaurant sits slightly below street level so you are looking at the feet of passers-by. We'll probably give it another try someday, but it's not a place to rush back to based on my 1st impression.

    I think we were there on a night of an unfortunate kitchen meltdown. Having been involved in the restaurant business, I know this can happen, and perhaps our dining experience was not typical. But I cannot in good faith recommend this restaurant. Also, I wish that I had known this restaurant was located within the hotel, for two reasons: one, it was difficult to find, since the address we were looking for was not actually visible from the street; and two, with few exceptions (Las Vegas) I find that "fine dining" restaurants within hotels, unless they are known for their cuisine, are actually moderate casual dining restaurants. I would have looked elsewhere for a reservation had I known this was a hotel restaurant.
