Lexington Brass Ratings and Reviews
Came into celebrate Christmas and a Birthday. We arrived between the end of brunch and dinner menu. The restaurant should not have accepted our reservation if they were not ready or willing to serve us. Waited for more than 45 minutes to place an appetizer order. Taste quality of the food was uneven. Some drinks and menu items were delicious and others just unremarkable. The grilled octopus, mussels were outstanding and SO delicious! Would return for those items. The oysters were very small but fresh and sweet. The entree’s were less. My hubby ordered the mushroom spaghetti which was very rich but good tasting and a nice mix of many exotic types of mushrooms and truffles. I got the filet. Just kind of meh. It was tender but the herb crusting and overall not very flavorful. Needed more spice and salt for sure. There was nothing special on the menu for the holiday and no acknowledgement of the special occasion even though noted on the reservation.
This is our second visit to Lexington Brass. I had the BEC omelette which was good (Bacon, Onion, Cheddar) he had the the eggs benedict which he liked. The truffle fries were not that good and our waiter (per my request) took it off the bill since we didn't like it and didn't eat it. Sounds like a small gesture but $11 was a lot for fries.
My only complaint was the hostess who initially seated us by the wait-station which I don't like as there is a lot of activity surrounding the wait-station. She showed her displeasure when we asked for a different table. She suggested another table that was next to a different wait-station. We again stated why that was not acceptable. She said she was expecting a large party and couldn't give us the table we wanted. We said we would be there for only about 1/2 hour and she relented. During our stay the tables around us did not get filled so we were skeptical of her excuses. It was Christmas day so she could have been unhappy about working that day.
Nous étions 5 repas et cocktail très bon
On nous apporte l addition sans qu' on l ai demandé . On demande quelle soit partagée et on nous répond trop tard seulement en 2 cartes maximum et sans vouloir faire de calcul . C est assez moyen je dirai .
Hostess asked me twice if I was still a party of 7, even though I confirmed it the day before and upon arrival and answered her question the first time around. So that made me feel a bit harassed. The bartender was really good and attended to us and provided some water while we waited for our table. The waiter was very accommodating and professional, as well as friendly. The food was good!
My boyfriend and I came here for a special date night. The kitchen was running a little slow that night, but it made for a better experience because our meal was leisurely and not rushed. The food was delicious, the waitstaff was friendly and helpful, and the drinks were extremely creative. Highly recommend checking out Lexington Brass!
Convenient Mid-Town location. Good food and good service. Only complaint is that the restaurant DID NOT have capacity to accept our reservation for the time slot they accepted it. We made a reservation for 7:30pm only one hour in advance. We chose this restaurant because it APPEARED to have availability on short notice. Turns out it did not. Restaurant was packed when we arrived, and took about 45 minutes to be seated. Food and service were good once we were seated.
Reservation not ready upon arrival so sat at bar for drink. I know NYC bar prices can be high but $48 for 3 Tito’s and soda was a little ridiculous! Brunch menu was good - something for everyone. If I were in the area I’d go back but would NOT order cocktails
We had Sunday brunch and it was lovely. Great ambiance, tables are reasonable distance so not on top of one another, great server, good food, wonderful wines and they really left the four of us ladies sit and chat for a while after we finished. Would recommend.
Food was great, but service was awful. Took over an hour for our food to come out. Seems like they were under staffed that night in the kitchen as well as waiters/waitresses. The bus boys, however, were diligent and friendly.
Husband and I invited our parents for dinner in NYC. We choose Lexington Brass because of the extensive menu and wide variety of dietary restrictions within our group. The restaurant was fairly crowded when we arrive for our 5:30 reservation- a sign we took as a positive! It took very long for a server to approach our table, longer for drinks to arrive, and almost two hours had passed before we were brought our dinners. Although the food was tasty, we were severely disappointed in the slow service and will not return, nor recommend, Lexington Brass.
