Seated promptly; attentive server, Kelly, who was friendly and efficient; luncheon special was the choice for two of us and they were delighted with the presentation and the flavor as well as happy to have a range of choices for breads and sides; my salad was fresh and lightly dressed; good wine selection; water and drinks refreshed at regular intervals

we had a very good experience , the food was really good , the service was nice , what we disliked was the noise from the kitchen , cooks were too loud at the end of the shift and it was really annoying us , we just wanted to talk in a good ambiance at the end of the dinner while we were finishing our wine ....

Have been at Lexx for lunch several times and love the selection, the creativity of the food, and the prep - all really good. Even the bread and butter are delicious. Nice waitpeople, good atmosphere. I am becoming a regular.

A dear friend and I just wished to get together. We wanted to go to a place where we could just sit down, have someone wait on us, and just enjoy the general environment ... and also I might say, not have to overspend. Lexx just had it all. It's not fancy food, and doesn't pretend to be. But my falafel was truly yummy. Even the naan used as the roll up bread was just right. I think I'm a little particular, but didn't find anything wanting.

Had a wonderful lunch with my cousin. Large portions for the price- just desserts a bit expensive. Was not rushed and staff was very kind. Food was fresh and fantastic. Had many choices and some very different menu items and specials. Enjoyed it.

I had the small Caesar salad with chicken for lunch. There wasn't enough dressing on it but once I asked for extra and added it to my salad it was delicious! Would definitely order it again and ask for extra dressing on the side.

I have been to Lexx many times and it is always consistently good. However, I was a little disappointed this time in that the fish taco was very short on fish and heavy on the accompanying ingredients. It made for a messy and not entirely satisfactory lunch.

2nd time I have dined at Lexx. Very very busy, but I felt well taken care of. Several mistakes with our order/food, but our server resolved quickly. The food was delicious and worth the wait. I received a call from Lexx when I returned home, we were overcharged, and they let me know and made it right. I will be back. Great food and customer service.

We had a wonderful meal at Lexx before going to a concert at nearby Carey Hall. There were four of us, and we were each very happy with what we ordered. The service was good, and even though the restaurant became very full while we were there, it was never so noisy that we couldn't have a comfortable conversation. The atmosphere is very pleasant. We had a great time, and will definitely be back!

The visit did not start off well because our 6:15 Open Table reservation was not honored until we finally sat down at 7pm. Although we enjoyed a drink at the bar, what was the point of making a reservation? Then things greatly improved. The food was delicious and timely. Our server, Kelly, was excellent. At the end of our meal, the hostess visited our table to apologized for our delayed seating and gave us a $25 gift certificate which we used that night. We appreciated this kindness and felt better about the visit.

A night after the Lexington Symphony. The excellent food made up for the sticky table that we were sat at. We enjoyed the appetizers and the main entry. There is only street parking or parking behind the stores in the center.

Pretty disappointing business lunch. Service started string but then tapered off after other customers came in. Special of the day was a Chicken Fra Diavolo with Pasta that sounded great. When it came I had to spend a long time picking an entire red onion out of the sauce. Never saw a Fra Diavolo sauce so heavily laden with onions like that. It was tasty but lost its appeal. The bar looked cool. Might give it a try in the evening.

The table at the farthest back left next to the window is directly under an A/C vent.
We put our winter coats back on after asking twice for it to be turned down;
A server came to us with some other table's meals and then took them away;
Our meals came but had to be eaten quickly because of the cold air blowing down over them; when server was removing the used dishes instead of stacking them she tried to pick them up all at once and dropped the used knife into my lap. Because I had my coat on it was a non issue fortunately.

Most seating on picture windows facing the sidewalk and main street. Some seating in rear. Small bar facing a field stone wall with two small TVs. Good for small groups only. Street parking. Unusual menu; I like the Moroccan Stew and the Osso Buco.

Quite good -- no, better than that. Quite fine. Interesting menu and everything for the party of six was good. I was feeling a little off so opted for the simple roast chicken -- exc! The more exotic dishes were equally fine

Six friends get together for dinner monthly and like to try new restaurants. We had never been to Lexx but it was suggested by a friend. Service was great, food and drinks were very good. Not a huge menu, but something for just about everyone. Prices were moderate. We all enjoyed it very much.

I eat lunch here regularly and dinner every month or so. The food is good and the prices usually are appropriate. This particular meal was not especially memorable, however, mainly due to our server. She did a very nice job of describing the specials (although they seemed over-priced), but her performance declined rapidly after that. She offered me a thimble-equivalent for tasting the wine, and then over-filled our wine glasses. She then ignored us for most of the evening (I twice needed to ask someone to fine her). Finally, following my request, she neglected to add the dining points to my account. Not good.

Lexx has become a regular go-to for us even though we live a couple of towns over. Food is always great and the environment is casual/relaxed. Everyone (party of 4) enjoyed their meals with the Pork Osso Bucco and Moroccan Stew being stand outs. Staff is friendly and attentive and wine/spririts list is solid.

The mussels were delicious and the champagne dressing on my salad was very tasty. My friends took the beef carpaccio and the hummus plate as starters: fresh ingredients, generous portions, they loved their dishes. I personnally did not like the settings (we were sitting in a booth) that I found old-fashioned for such a creative and fresh cuisine.

My experience was so-so. We came because my friend saw something on their online menu only to find out it wasn't available because they hadn't updated their website in over a year and half our server told us. Aside from that the menu was good but the service scattered. Dinners came quick, but drinks not so much. We were also handed dessert menus but no one came back to ask if we wanted dessert. By the time she did (about 25 min later) we talked ourselves out of it and the server didn't seem to notice that we had been handed dessert menus.
People were nice, but there was an evident lack of communication. I prob wouldn't go back. Ambiance is nice, though.
