Really great location in Lexington. Atmosphere and service are excellent. Food was very good. The pork chop with grits and asparagus was fantastic.

The service was good and friendly. The menu had a lot of variety. Very nice portion, just right. I had an interesting craft martini made with gnger to broaden my horizons. Elegant white tablecloths but still a casual atmosphere.

Chose this place off of Open Table and it was a perfect choice. My husband had the signature, award winning pork chop and I had the salmon. Both were cooked to perfection. Service was terrific and the ambiance was great. When we go back to Lexington we will definitely go to Nick Ryan's for a meal !

Found this restaurant while driving in down town Lexington. Looked very inviting. Decided, to make reservations. Was not disappointed. Greeted cordially, seated in the bar area. Waitress, introduced herself and it was the beginning to a great meal, prompt and courteous service. The meal was delicious. Hidden treasure in downtown. Foodies will enjoy.

Very disappointed in the Rossi's pasta. Had a different yet lackluster taste. Shrimp wraps were good as always. Very concerned that this menu will not be able to keep up the pace in this town. We have been going there since it opened and this is very sad. This is not the first disappointment. On a brighter note our server Morgan was a delight!

My first time there--took the office staff. Allen the server was outstanding. Appetizers good, price good, food good, service time good. Again, Allen was the best. No noise when we first came in but as it filled up, some noise but not enough that I couldn't hear my table mates. I despise loud restaurants so this fits the bill for me for lunch.
