Sunday brunch menu offers something for everyone!! Eggs Benedict were spot on as was the French Toast. The omelette was a little over done , but tasty nonetheless. Super convenient to Grand Central. A bit noisy , but to be expected in NYC brunch spots. Bloody Mary was disappointing, but nice selection of specialty cocktails that were much better.

My wife, I, and another couple went to Lexington Bras for Sunday brunch. Menu featured many traditional items, often with an interesting twist, as well as nontraditional items, such as shakshuka (poached eggs in a spicy tomato sauce) that my wife had. I had scrambled eggs with sweet potato-quinoa hash and chicken sausage patties. Coffee is good and strong. Our server was very good.

I arrived early and was offered a seat at the bar. I ordered a drink and was promptly served. The rest of my party arrived within a few minutes. They wouldn’t allow me to carryover the drink to the table. it Just makes a mess of expense accounts. The food was good, the service was attentive the wine options too limited but we found some thing we liked and had two rounds.

Needed gluten free and vege option, along with some regular options- this hit it all!! A little loud,to be expected like most places. Food delivery a little slow, but really delicious for everyone’s tastes. Will go again to see if delivery time is typically slow,just because food so good. Kudos to chef.

We enjoyed it very much. Nice menu with choices to appeal to all tastes and a variety of budgets. Service very nice. Had to ask for bread but it was delivered promptly and was generous slices of a good peasant style bread. My husband’s filet mignon was perfectly cooked. The chicken under a brick which my brother ordered was delicious. I had the special chicken rice bowl and it was a nice change from things I usually order.

I always drove by this place, (usually at night), and knew it was a good place to eat. From the outside it looks stuffy and expensive, but it's casual and reasonably priced. I finally went there for Saturday Brunch.
The menu was expansive and it was hard to make a decision on what to order. So i will be going back.
Service was great, and the food came out quick.

After a rocky start, we ended up with a very good meal and experience. We started with escargots which were somewhat chewy and not too flavorful. Unfortunately the bread was not very good either .The server acknowledged that it was not very good but it was all they had. The entrees however were excellent and perfectly cooked ( salmon and monkfish). The desserts (financier and chocolate cake) were super! So overall it was a very nice dinner in a lively brasserie. Just find some better bread please.

The food was great, but the service was lacking. The hostess was not friendly, and even though we had a reservation, our table was not available until 15 minutes later, and she was not apologetic. We had to check on the table 3 times before it was ready. This was a business meeting, and our clients had a tight schedule. This made for a rushed experience and her attitude was not appreciated.

We met my son who lives out of town at Lexington Brass for brunch last Sunday. It turned out to be a great spot to reunite. We like the mid-afternoon brunch and the peppy ambiance and the nearness to Grand Central.

Food was wonderful. Service left a lot to be desired. Our waiter came by and dropped off menus and then didn't come back for more than 10 minutes and kept walking by. The restaurant had maybe 6 tables with people and it was 9 pm. So it wasn't busy. The time between courses was extremely long and the waiter never came back to check on us or our drinks. I only got a refill of my drink after dessert was served, despite not having a drink for at least a half hour. Again, the food was wonderful but I wouldn't return due to the service.

I have been to Lexington Grill many times formally. Unfortunately it seems they might have changed the chef and updated the kitchen and the food was simply hn edible. I had what was the daily special and could only eat half and finally stopped trying.
Prior the food was so tasty healthy and well prepared. Maybe they need to address the change cause I brought an important friend client and she was not impressed. Saddens me when a place goes down. Please work on it!! I live and work in the area and need good food options.

Lexington Brass is your average hotel adjacent restaurant and pretty typical for the area. For the hype, the high costs and the amount of recommendations that this place gets, it was underwhelming. It seemed that they were either severely limited with wait staff and had too many hostesses. It IS a great place for a quick afternoon meal and is convenient walk from my job, but nothing to write home about. I had made specific requests on my reservation which were not respected. The bathroom is also inconveniently located next door in the hotel 2 levels down. Overall, there are better places to go for a special occasion, but for a quick bite this is an option in the area.

I was really impressed with Lexington Brass. The service was excellent - really good attitude, attentiveness and quality. The food is clever and tastes fantastic. The prices are fine for NYC. Maybe a touch higher than I would expect for what we got, but it was high quality and tasty, so it’s fine. Really happy with it.
