Excellent chef; Excellent presentation; excellent service. However the seafood linguini was the size of an appetizer. We will return.
Absolutely amazing on every level. Very accommodating for our needs. Food and presentation were exquisite.
One of my favorite restaurants!! Highly recommended and will be visiting again soon!!
Food is always amazing and the service is the best you can get. Always a favorite spot.
Four friends getting together for a lovely evening and dinner. Dining on the upstairs patio added to our beautiful evening.
totally pleased with my visit. had not eaten at Dudley's since they moved from south hill to downtown. inside is beautiful. wait staff were excellent. food was great. the heirloom tomato app was absolutely delicious as was the lamb shank and dessert. highly recommend it. I live in Cincinnati and moved from the Bluegrass about 12 years ago, but would gladly make a trip back down on a weekend just to eat at Dudley's. was a great meal.
Best restaurant in Lexington. Food, service impeccable. We dined on the roof and it was beautiful!
Never disappoints!! Had dinner on the rooftop patio, great service, food was wonderful. Always in our favorite dining rotation.
Staff was amazing, food and drinks were spectacular and I’ll definitely be returning. I would highly recommend it.
The tuna I had was a disappointment; tasteless, presentation poor. My husband 's Ceasars salad was taseless as well.
The dinner celebration a celebration of the birthday . When reserving a table I was asked in the questionnaire for the occasion for this reservation. I noted that it was a birthday. The person who had her birthday wasn't offer any special treat. Why asking for the reason for dining?
Amazing ambiance and food. Terrific waitress. Appropriate contact precautions in place for COVID (we are on the rooftop). Will be coming back soon!
Awesome. Said that it was for our anniversary on Open Table and they brought us a surprise dessert!
Food came cold and seemed precooked.
Ordered vintage wine that was on menu and it wasn’t in stock
Overall - okay but not what we intended.
The service was almost magical. Great restaurant run by great staff!
We had an amazing experience and amazing service as well as the food was phenomenal! We went for our anniversary dinner and our server was Kazman, who did an outstanding job!
Service was amazing.
Pasta dish was smaller than in past and not as good.
One of my 5 favorite places in the country. Food is always great, bar selection is fabulous and service is at the top.
First time dining experience. Great menu, wonderful food, and excellent service. Benton is professional and cordial. Thank you.
Dudley’s did not disappoint! Our server, Corey, did a great job and was exceptionally attentive. The owner came by to speak and invited us upstairs to view the patio dining on the rooftop. The food was excellent as well as the ambience. This is a must if you are in Lexington. We even got to meet Bob Baffert as we were leaving. Exceptional night!
Our food was not up to the normal Dudleys standards and the service was very slow. We typically love Dudley but this was not a house experience.
Perfect as always! One of the best restaurants in Lexington.
The beat experience I’ve had at Dudley’s so far! Brad was an excellent server, the food was delicious, and the spacing was comfortable due to Covid.
Adam was a wonderful server. He was very attentive and should be commended. It’s always my go to place when in Lexington.
The food was fantastic and the ambiance on the rooftop patio was perfect!!! I would highly recommend Dudley’s for a fine dining experience!
Great dining experience, as always. One my favorite restaurants in Lexington.
Very special place and our most favorite restaurant. Food was exceptional wonderful tonight and so happy to see the restaurant busy and COVID safe.
Had a very pleasant evening, food was very good and service was excellent
Birthday dinner absolutely amazing as always sat upstairs on outside patio which was gorgeous. Food was outstanding. Highly recommend the tourneodos and Berkshire pork chops . Always an incredible experience .
Social distancing? People were seat immediately beside our table.
Dudley’s once again did not disappoint. Cocktails, food and service were all amazing.
Wine, food and service all were excellent. Bradley took great care of us.
I have been here many times over the years and it keeps getting better (I worked here back in the day, at the previous location). The rooftop patio is beautiful and is the best patio I’ve ever seen. Our food was exquisitely plated and was delicious, we each had one of the fish specials. The owner, Debbie, is always present and making sure things are great. Our service was friendly and excellent. Truly a great night, Lexington is lucky to have a place like this here!
Even with limited seating and a smaller menu, Dudley's did not disappoint. Excellent service and awesome food.
We dined at Dudley’s for my birthday and were seated on the rooftop(my favorite spot)! Our server, Hannah was incredible! She was friendly and attentive, explained the dishes well, and helped to make our experience an enjoyable one.
We loved the rooftop ambiance (it’s truly unique), and were more than satisfied with the entire evening! Great food, great wine, great service, great night!
We have been Dudley’s fans for many many years... tonight- fabulous meal, fabulous service. Best date night in a while ... especially this summer. Top notch virus safety in place- thank you. We were so comfortable and relaxed. I almost don’t want to tell anyone else about it. Thanks, and keep up the good work- cap’n pap
Pasta Dudley was too salty and full of raw purple onions, the waitress was oblivious, and when I complained about it she just kept walking. I had another server take it away. Neither the owner or mgr. stopped at the table to see what was happening. They were both on duty. They used to have a variety of breads, now they just give you 1 soggy store bought type of dinner role. Won't be back way overrated and over priced. $25 for a bland small portioned pasta dish--ridiculous!!!
Might be my favorite place in Lexington. They are always very courteous, professional, and I love the atmosphere and food. Whether it is for a business lunch or romantic dinner, I have never had a bad experience at Dudley's and have eaten there often.
Sat on the rooftop patio. Beautiful ambiance, food was amazing, service was fantastic.
