                                    We have been to this restaurant twice before, which is why we came back. However, the menu was more limited than in the past. In addition, the service was very slow although the restaurant was not crowded.

                                    I was disappointed. Have wanted to go for a long time. The staff was great but the food was very under seasoned and under whelming. Started with tuna tartare and ceviche both of which needed salt and acid. I had the salmon which was very good but the veggies it came with were overloaded with lemon that I could not eat them. My husband got the sliders which were just ok. With all the amazing places around will not be back.

                                    Menu is limited; salad and pita with dips were good; main courses were disappointing - fish was not flavorful and vegetable sides were insignificant. Not worth the prices charged.

                                    This was our second time dining here. We enjoyed the first time, enormously. But as I think our meal at 251 Lex a few nights ago, it was perhaps the worst evening out for dinner I ever had. From the service to the food, from running out of the specials early in the evening, to sending two dinners back to the kitchen, nothing was right. Twenty minutes would pass between waiter visits. Asked to sit outside and was told those table were booked. But they gave us a table overlooking the outside and there were tables available the entire evening. Bottle of white wine came warm and we had to wait for it to be chilled in the bucket of ice. The entire evening was a disaster. Every aspect of the dining experience was unacceptable. Nothing more to say.

                                    The food was was really delicious , the chef is extremely creative and both of the dishes were elegantly plates . We enjoyed the quiet , calm atmosphere and thought it was suitable for an elegant evening out . The wine portions were on the small size and not even filled half way--- we were disappointed on the stingy serving size. We noted that our server was a little un attentive and also a little inexperienced . Perhaps he was new to the restaurant . We will give it another try ...

                                    What a terrific place! It seems like it just gets better each time we go! Last week it happened to be 1/2 price wine night so we enjoyed a lovely bottle of Rose! The food is creative, fresh and oh-so-delicious. The chef artfully blend flavors and spices in beautifully presented plates. The service is warm and friendly, and everyone makes it a treat to be here.

                                    Very disappointing. The food just doesn't live up to expectations, or the level of cooking available at other places in our area. Fish for Crudo was crudely cut, and the dressing screamed for acid. Chicken and steak were ordinary in every way. Desserts were best part, but not enough to lure us back. It's a nice place, but they need a chef who knows something about flavor.

                                    I have eaten at 251 Lex many times and have really had some great meals. This past visit was not very good. The food was drowning in dressings/oils to the point that was way to heavy. In addition, I had the octopus (which I have had too many times and loved) which was dry and overcooked. As always, the service was very good and accommodating to our needs.

                                    This is a place we have been to a few times over the last 7 years. Drinks are good, service is better but the food is ho hum. The menu is broad but the elements seem too industry standard. I'm sure the crab cakes for my app and the 4 shrimp of my entree had recently spent time in a freezer even though a fresh seafood shop is nearby. Maybe with time we'll forget and be back again.

                                    Went with friends for restaurant week and unlike most restaurants which only offer 3 or 4 entrees, Lex 251 offered their whole menu! The service and atmosphere were great and the food wonderful! I am looking forward to returning and trying dinner. Highly recommend.

                                    We've wanted to try this restaurant for a while and settled into the Bar area last Saturday night after a warm welcome. Things quickly went downhill. In a rush to put bread on the table, a full glass of water was spilled on one of our party with nary an apology. Bread was both burnt and ice cold. How is that possible? We complained, the bread was taken away and never replaced. We found the menu to be limited and very oddly presented. Our $15 platter of dips and pita was minimal and ordinary in flavor. The heavily hyped Sizzling Octopus arrived with one tentacle...this was a main course! The gnocci and octopus and pasta appetizers were deemed inedible. We are adventurous eaters, but we will not "venture" back to 251 Lex.

                                    It's fine -- nothing special. Dips with pita bread was good and chicken was delicious. Meatballs dried out and salad was overwhelming. Too many greens and not enough flavor

                                    I went to a networking event, through my job, at this restaurant. During the course of the evening there was a raffle and I won a gift certificate to 251 Lex. My friend and I decided to go for lunch. It was a very happy experience. We both really enjoyed our food, the staff was attentive, and we even ended up tapping our toes to the music they had on in the background. A very pleaseant experience and a really satisfying lunch.

                                    we went for a prix fixe Valentine's Day dinner. The choices were good as was the food. The service was very slow and inattentive. There was one waiter for the entire upstairs floor and he while pleasant, rarely looked up or around to check on his tables. While I am happy not to be rushed, the meal took WAY too long.

                                    There was nothing special about this place. I am not sure what they are trying to be. I think its a modern take on Greek but it has its shortcomings. The atmosphere is nice. its modern its clean looking. So when you get there it is impressive. They have their own parking so that is great. (although we had to wait some time for a spot). The wait staff didnt seem knowledgeable or overly friendly but not bad.. The food though was underwhelming. everything we ordered was good - but nothing was outstanding. the choices were nothing to excite you and i was with three foodies and the comments were "what is the least boring thing to order..." The Octopus i ordered was great. but it was on a bed of dry tasteless couscous to it brought down the experience. the apps were ok, had a cabbage salad and croquette that was good. not great. the rest had a gyro and a burger.. again just nothing to rave about. but not bad either just ok...

                                    Great food. We liked the variety of small plates and entrees. Reasonably priced and solid wine list. Great service: attentive, but let our group enjoy time together.

                                    What a treat! This is a little treasure that has some unusual - and delicious - Mediterranean food. The service was excellent! It was a bit quiet at lunch (which we didn't mind), and the pleasant surrounding made it perfect. There's no quest we'll be back, and will try some of their sister restaurants as well. Give it a try!

                                    251 Lex is one of my favorite restaurants. The food is very good. The servers and managers are very attentive. For some reason in this night we were given breadsticks rather than bread. While it was unclear if this was a change that was being made or just a decision on this particular evening, when I requested an alternative we were quickly provided with bread. This is a good example of the experience I have consistently had. They always look to provide a good and personal experience. I would suggest that they provide pita as the table bread rather than the bread they serve.

                                    We loved it! Were a large group (all ages, family). Staff were attentive and nice. Lots of good sharing options, healthy too. Loved the bottomless bloody marys and mimosas for brunch. Will definitely recommend this place!
