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.
Consistently fabulous every time. A Lexington must!
Very seldom in my world travels have we experienced such professional trained waiters.
Compliments to the manager and obviously the Chef
Wonderful evening and great service .
Michael was the bartender taking care of us did an outstanding job. Everyone always nice and courteous, manger Dave also helped take excellent care of the table.
The food is always excellent, the patio is a wonderful place to eat outdoors in Lexington.
The service is first class from beginning to end of the meal, Dudley's is one of the premier restaurants in Lexington
My daughter and I came to tour UK and was one of few restaurants open on Sunday evening. We sat on rooftop patio and ambience was amazing. Even supplied hand sanitizer at table. Food was delicious!
The noise level was minimal. I wasn’t sure how to express that on your sliding scale
Love eating here when I come to Lexington. Love the Kale salad and the duck was delicious. It is a bit pricey, so use it as an indulgence.
This restaurant does everything right in the midst of the pandemic. Tables spaced, wait staff wear masks and gloves. The menu is a bit limited to reflect the times but our food was outstanding! Service was impeccable. I've dined here before the pandemic and during the pandemic and I will dine here long after the current crisis.
My new favorite restaurant in Lexington. The food was really top notch. We all had their specials of the day and it was amazing. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Our waiter actually asked us if we would want them to keep our to-go items in their refrigerator as we went out exploring downtown Lexington. I have never had anyone asked me that at any restaurant. Can't wait for my next night out at Dudley's.
Top notch place and people, and their Prime Rib is Amazing!!!
Dudley’s has always been one of your fav restaurants in the city. Top notch food, service, and atmosphere. They never disappoint
always a fantastic ambiance and meal at Dudley's!!
Meal was outstanding having had the special halibut recommended by the owner. Salad was wonderful being well prepared and extremely fresh tomatoes with chevre. We are foodies and eat out frequently seeking very good quality and if possible at a reasonable price. Dudley's exceeded these expectations and we will return there on our next trip through Lexington. Did not have dessert since split starter and main course were very filling.
