I always choose this place for special occasions and business meals but this time the service was not really good. Our glasses were not filled with water promptly, even though we asked for it at least twice. The restaurant week pre-fix menu was just ok.
Hope you improve a little bit...thanks

Having been to Lexington Brass for brunch a few days earlier with a relative, I came back for an early supper with business colleagues. It was busy and buzzy - very lively for a Wednesday evening in January. Service and food were both good. Lexington Brass is not a place for a quiet meal, whether romantic or business, but for a lively brunch, lunch or supper with friends, relatives or colleagues it's a great mid-town option.

Good spot for breakfast or lunch but tables way too close together. Noise level is actually moderate which doesn't provide the shield one needs to chat freely with the next table only inches away.

The entree was very good, but the side of Lobster Mac was pathetic. It was stired up mac with lobster added not baked. I've eaten Lobster Mac in many places and this was the worse I ever had.

Overall the food was good but the service was slow and no one was very friendly aside from the hostess who was seeet. We started with the crispy cauliflower which was amazing. Everyone in our groups food was good-from salad to burgers to steak to salad.

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.

We had an amazing brunch on Christmas Day. The food was delicious and good serving sizes and the service very friendly and great with our two children. Nice enough for a special occasion but relaxed enough to be family friendly. Would definitely recommend.

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.

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!

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.
