    This was our first time dining at Tony’s. We arrived early and had drinks at the bar. Prices were reasonable but selection could have been better. It seems that all of the good bourbons are in cabinets being held for specific people/groups. We were seated our reservation time and our server was Corey. He did an outstanding job tending our table, making sure drinks were topped off regularly and moving dishes off the table and replacing silverware with each dish. The food was fantastic, our party of 4 was satisfied from start to finish with the whole experience. The only small nitpick is the live band was quite loud, we were seated fairly close so we were having to speak much louder. Music was still great though and really added to the experience. Will be coming back in the future.

    Dinner with family on a Saturday evening. Reservations were easy through Open Table a month in advance. Jeff Ruby’s is known as an upscale place to dine and the Lexington KY location does not disappoint with the beautiful decor, attentive customer service and of course, the food. Our server was nice, but I was a little annoyed he was not as professional as I expected. Eye rolling about the multiple food sourcing and selection while briefing us on the menu seemed inappropriate. He also made small talk about his children being from different mothers, which is really odd and uncomfortable. Otherwise everything was cooked to perfection without any issues.

    This is my FAVORITE restaurant in Lexington and it isn't even close to my 2nd favorite!! Everything I eat here is amazing and the service is beyond exceptional every single time we eat here (which is weekly at least). I cannot recommend enough.

    Celebrated New Year’s Day by having brunch with friends. The menu was incredible making it tough to choose what to have. The food was delicious.

Discover Lexington

Lexington, Kentucky, may be the horse capital of the world, but it's also a location known for its genteel Southern dining. Try buttermilk fried chicken and pork and beans for dinner with a crisp but sweet peach pie for dessert. You can also pair a juicy steak with a signature Kentucky bourbon. Latin flavors abound in Lexington through sweet and savory pork carnitas. If you're feeling adventurous, try a dish with venison or rabbit. For meals with a kick, sample barbecue chicken or mutton featuring the region's signature vinegar-based sauce. Pair your meal with spoonbread and corn pudding, and you'll soon be feeling like a Lexington local.
