    I always leave LockBox feeling so pleased and impressed! Once again, this is why it will always remain one of my top spots to dine in Lexington!! From the moment we arrived, the vibe was devine! We started with an amazing specialty drink and a great glass of wine suggested by Noah, the bartender. The fresh and unique ingredients make the cocktails second to none! Noah’s attention to our preferences couldn’t have been more spot on in every way! He has such knowledge and the genuineness in his explanations is quite remarkable! His positivity makes it all even better! Our appetizer, salads, main course and dessert were all superb and just icing on the cake-or lemon tart, I should say! WOW! Way to go, chef and kitchen staff! Evie took terrific care of us, checked in often, and was willing to explain specific dishes we asked about and offer recommendations! Her smile and service made us feel so welcome! Nick, another server, was friendly and conversational which is such a pleasure, and took time to deliver our entrees and ensure that we had what we needed as well! Terri made a point to check in on us as well and shared that there was jazz entertainment upstairs in case we may be interested! If Lockbox isn’t a place you visit often, you must make the decision to include it in your plans soon! You will be so glad you did!

    We loved the asparagus with Sauce Gribiche. I would have preferred my raw oysters to have the pink peppercorns and rose mignonette on the side not pour on top of the oysters. All in all, a nice meal and a quiet atmosphere.

    Dinner was definitely where it’s at here. Our server, Daric, was awesome! We had the grilled shrimp starter and the Steelhead trout which were very good 😋 I took away some stars for our breakfast experience only. We were hotel guests and arrived for a late breakfast and, as a former server myself, it’s good form to tell guests in advance if the kitchen is closing before seating is or if they are out of something, ask if the replacement is OK with them instead of bringing it out, dropping it and saying “I hope that’s OK.” They clearly did not want us there and the chip on her shoulder was huge. Daric and dinner that evening totally redeemed Lockbox, thank you!

    Hello! We appreciate you taking the time to review. We're very regretful to hear about your time with us at breakfast, but we appreciate you giving us the chance to provide a more stellar experience that evening.

    We arrived and told our server we needed to be done in 45 min to make UK basketball game. Our server did not come to our table for almost 15 min. Our lunch food took an hour to arrive!! They completely left off a table appetizer, when the food was delivered one of the breakfast sandwiches was missing. Not sure we will return! Food was excellent but service was worst we have experienced in Lexington!! BAD MANAGEMENT

    Mushroom soup was outstanding and decor is amazing. Service was difficult. Drinks came after appetizers were eaten. The burger was seriously overcooked.

    Ask for hamburgers, there were 2 of us, to be cooked well done which is no pink in the middle, right. They were served burnt to a charcoal crisp. In a hurry for the UK Basketball game and didn’t want to send them back but DEFINITELY SHOULD HAVE REJECTED THESE CHARCOAL BURGERS about the worst I had ever eaten at a cost of $36.00

    Beautiful space, friendly staff. We were looking for a nice-but-traditional Southern breakfast/brunch, but the offerings here were much more upscale and chichi than that. Ended up just ordering a la carte because we couldn't find traditional fare among the featured menu items. Coffee was delicious! Service was very slow, but pleasant. Our server checked in with us frequently. It was a full house at 10AM on a Sunday morning. I'm glad I had made a reservation with Open Table or we might not have been seated.

    Delicious food, and a lovely restaurant, but somewhat overpriced. Service was fine, if a bit slow. Would eat here again but probably would only order entrees and no apps.

    We had breakfast here during a recent stay. Enjoyed it so much had dinner at the bar that evening. Great cocktails, food was vey good although the portions were just a bit large - I hated feeling I was wasting anything. The standout for us however was the service. Very attentive without being invasive; knowledgeable with great recommendations. It’s worth a stop if you’re in downtown Lexington.

    It’s always a pleasure to dine at Lockbox. From the dining room, to the service, they’re getting it right. The food is on point. Well executed. Conceptually strong, ingredient driven cuisine. I’m excited to see what the chef does with spring!

    Our party of seven enjoyed an outstanding dining experience at Lockbox! The mixed green salad is delicious, and all of the appetizers arrived as described in the menu. The trout entree delighted my husband, and our entire group enjoyed an array of selections from the menu. A specialized menu for vegans/vegetarians was offered to our friends with food sensitivities. Consistent, fresh, and imaginative, this place offers a beautiful ambience and stellar dining experience.

    Overall food experience was terrible. The appetizer wasn't appetizing and we couldn't even get close to finishing it. The 2nd course was a tad better, but still not good as they were trying too hard to be exotic. The entrees were mixed. One was just ok with overcooked chicken. The other was inedible because the trout was so inundated with salt my wife could only take 2 bites before sending it back, and she loves salt. The people next to us were having the exact same experience with the first 2 courses, which were the same as ours and with the same complaints. We weren't there long enough to see about their entrees. The staff was friendly and apologetic. They took most of the food off the bill, more actually than what we voiced concerns with. However, we will not ever be back and cannot give anything but an avoid at all costs review. It's sad because we were hoping we had found a new, upper-scale restaurant to add to our options list.

    We enjoyed New Year’s Day brunch at Lockbox and everything was excellent. We had the “make your own mimosas” which was a great value for 2 people or more. I had a great salad with apples and fresh cheese, along with 2 fried eggs and the best bacon I’ve had in a while. My husband had the chicken schnitzel and it was delicious as well!
