    My wife and I had a good time. We went out for restaurant week but didn't know that the lunch for $30 was being served only during lunch time and not at 10:45 am. But the food and service were good.

    This restaurant has the feel of old New York. We went for breakfast on a Saturday morning. The place was spotless and the staff was ready to serve exactly at 9:30 am. The service is like being in a 5 star hotel restaurant. The food is fresh, quick and delicious. They even have Vegan options for my brother. This restaurant is a nice and refreshing surprise and will recommend to friends and family.

    Upscale pub setting with prices a bit high (due to association with the hotel). There is some stiff competition for foodies at this location. Interesting salad selections.

The brunch selections included the typical items and some unique ones as well. Our meals were delicious. We will definitely be back.

    My wife and I each ordered the steak frites. The server was very nice and prompt. However when our dinner was delivered both of our steaks were under cooked. The server again was very kind. We showed her that both of our steaks were raw and a strange light grey color. They serve the steak sliced. She took both of our dinners back to the kitchen. The manager brought our dinners back out. It was the exact same steaks that they attempted to heat up somehow in the kitchen. It looked as if they microwaved the steaks and put them back on the same plate and served us again. They didn’t even bother to give new French fries. Just sent the plates back out. The steak was inedible and the fries were cold. They removed the small cup of chimichurri butter in the kitchen and didn’t bother to send the plate back with the sauce. We asked the server for our check. We paid for our dinners that we didn’t touch and went to another restaurant for dinner. All this being said I would not recommend Lexington Brass to anyone. There are numerous great restaurants in the area. Avoid at all cost.

    Tuna appetizer was average. Steak Frites was fatty and flavorless. easily one of the worst SF preparations I've had. Menu and Wine List are way too brief. Too little to choose from. Service was friendly and attentive and the room has a nice buzz but the food was average to pedestrian.
