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.

I came here for restaurant week with 4 other people. Drinks were a little pricey, but that's Manhattan for you! I ordered the cauliflower soup w/ pancetta, it was magnificent. for my main course I got the Lobster Roll which for an extra $7 over the pre-fixe was not worth it. Actual Lobster roll was good, side salad was fine. I would come back though even if there is no special menu.

Excellent restaurant very close to Grand Central Station. High quality American-oriented health-conscious food with really attentive service. We were there for Sunday brunch, and everything was just fine except the noise level is a bit high. Apart from that minor negative, a really excellent choice.

Waitress was great,, food was wonderful. We had a giant fruit salad and both got avocado toast with eggs and feta. It didn’t need to slivered almonds but it was great none the less. Endless cups of hot coffee. All in all wonderful.

Only problem is that you have to take an elevator to get to the bathroom.

We chose the restaurant for its convenience, just a few yards from our hotel. The chicken paillard special was pedestrian - overcooked, was glad that the waiter brought a steak knife. My husband enjoyed his eggplant parmesan. The waiter was very attentive -- not overly so, just perfect -- and the service was excellent, but I would not return here. But, if you are exhausted and have aching legs after a day out in the city and are staying nearby, this is a perfectly acceptable restaurant.

Overpriced and When you order toast well done and it comes warm.
Taste like they cook the bacon I had of time and just microwave it

Popped in after meeting nearby. Server was very flat, but octopus and lobster Cobb were delicious! No special mentioned and I had to ask about fish and soup. It’s a shame the servers didn’t assist each other (water/bread/clearing/etc.) Restrooms were in dire need of cleaning. Soap dispenser broken and sink area flooded.

Went at 930am for a breakfast meeting with four colleagues. Service was slow and I ordered a special crab benedict, which came with no crab. It was awkward to have to ask the server to add the crab back. Not the kind of experience one would hope for when paying $25 for breakfast in new york.

Food is very good. “requested” we change tables after they seated us. Love the cauliflower appetizer. Very loud. Hard to have a conversation but if you can get a table around the corner from main dining area, it is a bit quieter.

Nothing exciting here- A cauliflower appetizer was a hit. The meatball (Kobe) app was overcooked or meatballs did not contain breadcrumbs or egg as the meat was tough. For us the prices were too high for the level of food or ambiance. I do not recall seeing prices on the wine list but I could be wrong. It was just too expensive for value received. Sorry to say because most of my restaurant reviews are very positive,this one to me is not worth the visit in my opinion. Wait staff was excellent though!

Went for breakfast, had the best pancakes ever—cinnamon roll with cream cheese frosting was fantastic. Also had Neuske’s bacon from my home state, which was also awesome. Ambiance was good, except for some reason they didn’t have the air on during an 85-degree day, so it was a bit warm.
