Came here for Valentines Day lunch. Had a reservation and was seated promptly. The dining area was partly full at 1:00, so not super busy. I ordered the quiche and hubby ordered the lobster salad. The quiche was quite nice, with mushrooms and sweet potatoes and carmelized onions and came with a side salad. The lobster salad was nice but hubby said it was missing something, and it was on the smaller side. We were seated at the back corner, where unfortunately I could feel vibrations of people walking during most of the meal. It was a bit annoying. Also, service was slow and not very attentive. When the waitress asked if we'd like black pepper, it took nearly 10 minutes for her to bring it, so my husband sat there waiting, hoping to be able to eat. Overall, nice, but lacking for a nicer establishment.

First, arrived on time for reservation and was told to wait in the bar area by a brusque hostess. After she say I was not liking that, she offered to comp our drinks and an appetizer, neither of which was done.

Menu was very limited and not very inventive. The food was marginal and not very tasty. Typical fare, but was very over-priced.

Specialty cocktails wee delicious and bartender (Tim) were a very nice guy.

My sister and I took our Dad to the Sunday breakfast buffet. The food was AMAZING! I couldn't get enough of the orange vanilla pancakes, while my father thoroughly enjoyed the Eggs Benedict. This isn't my first time visiting this restaurant and I'm always impressed by the unique blending of flavors. This was my first breakfast/brunch visit and I'll be back!

Absolutely loved the dinner and the breakfast! The menu includes all fresh ingredients from local farms. The drinks were phenomenal and highly recommend the maple old fashioned. Lincoln was our waiter and he was great at explaining the menu and making recommendations! We will definitely go there again!

My friend and I had lunch at this restaurant last week. It has a lovely and quiet atmosphere which makes quiet conversation possible. Many restaurants are too loud. The food was delightful and service was quite pleasant.

It is nice to have in Lexington as a special place to take friends, guests, and my book group. I will be coming back in March for the new high tea on Saturday afternoons.

Having a special brunch is tough to meet everyone's expectation. What Artistry lacks in quantities of choices - it makes up with quality of items. The array of eggs, protein and fresh produce was wonderful. I especially loved the "specialty egg" choices and the eggs Benedict might be the best I've ever eaten! I was disappointed that there wasn't any kind of chocolate dessert at the end. Even just a basket of chocolates would be a nice touch. I'd also have liked an interesting beverage choice too - maybe a special coffee or drink offering

This past weekend, my sister and I had dinner at Artistry on the Green. She had the beet "Greek" salad and the lamb and bacon Bolognese. I had the arugula salad and filet mignon, followed by the banana upside down cake with rum raisin ice cream. Everything was just delicious. My sister thought it was the best Bolognese she had had in ages. The lamb and bacon melded together well and the pasta was tender. She also kept commenting on how good was the Vermintino she drank with her meal. I found the arugula salad was refreshing, the filet mignon tender and flavorful, and the desert delicious. The rum raisin ice cream was particularly yummy. I drank ice tea, which was light and refreshing.

The person principally responsible for our table this weekend also waited on our table last summer. We recognized one another from our last visit. He very graciously said he was glad to see us come back; we were also pleased to see him, too. There are a lot of wait staff, each with a discrete function, but they keep things moving while being unobtrusive and efficient.

Also adding to the dining experience was the fact that tables are spaced generously apart from one another and filled in a manner to avoid a sense of crowding. Even as the noise level rose with successive arrivals, my sister and I could easily carry on a quiet conversation.

We always leave the restaurant feeling that we have had an exceptional meal, some aspect of which was among the best, if not the best, of its type that we have ever had. We consider ourselves fortunate to have access to that quality of food and dining experience so close by and in a quiet and peaceful setting. As always, a lovely experience.

We went for brunch (our usual place). They changed menu to breakfast buffet and food quality is not at par anymore. Will not go anymore which is unfortunate as we truly liked this place but for this kind of meals and the price it's not worth it. Cannot recommend for brunch.

So glad we have Artistry in the town of Lexington! I've been there many times, though this was my first buffet breakfast. I would suggest offering guests items from the menu (in addition to the buffet fare). The service is almost always excellent here, though this time I have to say that our waiter was not particularly friendly.
Snow had fallen, but the walkways had not been shoveled, leading to slippery, dangerous walking.
Happy New Year!

Artistry on the Green was the location of our annual Christmas dinner with our closest friends. We were not disappointed !! The meal was fabulous: all four of us pleased with our choices. Two of us had clam chowder which was outstanding. The service was excellent and the ambiance quiet and festive. We plan on making this our Christmas dinner spot next year!

We enjoyed our lunch very much indeed. The food was OK, but not too much more than that, though the portions were very generous and nicely served. The main thing that impressed us this time was the service -- so considerate and friendly and accommodating. Really remarkable. And the wine was good, too.

The buffet was plentiful but the choices were not that appealing. You could also have some dishes made. I had eggs Benedict. I was not impress. I had been to another restaurant the week before and had eggs Benedict there which was delicious. I also ordered a Bloody Mary which was watery and had no real flavor or zip, again the prior restaurants was perfect.

The dining area is large, and refreshingly uncrowded. You can actully hear everyone at your table talk , without having to strain or shout. The decor fits the colonial nature of downtown Lexington. The food was very good. The waiter was very professional, but was extemely busy, and as a result, attentivenss that I am sure he was capabable of , suffered a bit. Also, the food came out lukewarm due to the same issue I'm sure, but it was qucikly reheated.

This restaurant has started a fixed price brunch for $35 per person. I think that is steep especially as it is a buffet, although they will cook eggs to order. This sort of situation encourages me to overeat, so I try to avoid it. I enjoyed having brunch with my daughters nevertheless.
