The new chef appears to be a success. Our mushroom consommé was superb. My carbonara was also excellent and was actually the right amount: no brown bag to carry home. The waiter was new but very knowledgeable and personable.

Enjoyed a great lunch, highly recommended. The food is fantastic, well prepared, and not fussy. The menu is described as farm to table and we felt the food was fresh and excellent. The ambiance is kind of an old, colonial feel. Not quite Wayside in, but that direction.

Lovely colonial atmosphere with a modern touch. Food took a very long time to come out—about 30 mins @ a time when maybe there were five small parties. Server completely forgot one of our guest’s orders. Though we were not charged for the entree, our colleague had to eat after we had finished. Food was average.

Lots of potential. Need much better mgmt; a faster kitchen and a more discriminating chef.

Artistry on the Green is a beautiful restaurant. Plenty of space between tables and impeccable service create an atmosphere conducive to good conversation, making it a great place to get together with friends. Although the menu isn't extensive, the food is good and so is the wine.

We had a wonderful time. We had the table I asked for. I miss the good bread you used to have.
We were three people. There were three rollsin the basket and they were not special. My ceasar salad and crabs cakes were perfect!

Part of this review being negative is my fault. I though this was a buffet. Normally my family goes to Boston Harbor Hotel for holidays but I wanted to try somewhere new.
For 65.00 fix menu you should be ashamed of yourselves with the vegan portion. Lord it was horrid. choice was steak and eggs, vegan or lamb. I chose lamb. couscous was given to the vegetarian in our family so she would be full. I was very disappointed. However our waitress was lovely and kind. I would not recommend this INN to anyone.

What a beautiful location - right off the Lexington Common, and a really beautiful room - very colonial feeling.

That said, the food wasn't as good as the location - very limited menu without much of note - a daily quiche, a vegetarian sandwich. I had the hamburger, which was a hamburger. I found little on the menu to excite me. Oh well...

We went for the first time to try the clam chowder which has gotten rave reviews. The Inn is beautiful. The dining room is lovely and the investment in ceiling tiles is worth it. We could hear each other, but not be disturbed by the other diners. But...the owners MUST get on top of their staffing. They have really nice, well meaning folks working for them. My sense was there is a lot of turnover. The hostess, NICE as can be, was frazzled by what seemed like a lot of responsibilities. The chowder was really, really, really, really good but arrived warm not hot.

I can't believe this is a restaurant associated with a Relais & Chateaux property. There is a big disconnect between the lovely atmosphere and the poor food/service. The waiters' abrupt service was more fitting for a local diner. The food would have been better at a diner. My egg dish was very greasy. The orange juice was described as freshly squeezed ("best you have ever had") yet it was right out of a carton. The chowder was over salted. The menu focuses almost exclusively on egg dishes, with little else to choose from. Everyone in my party was disappointed. I hope the chef, who is praised as a local talent, is delivering for dinner. She has certainly failed at brunch. I appreciate the Inn's presence in Lexington; it brings charm to this town. Stay overnight, but skip the dining room.

I had a pleasant brunch at Artistry on the Green. The food was tasty, service was excellent, and setting was attractive and comfortable. However, as a bit of thrifty person, I thought the meal was overpriced. OJ, coffee, a waffle, and two eggs on the side came to $30 with tax and 20% tip. (Brunch prices are a la carte.) I'm sure I could have gotten this meal elsewhere for at least $10 less. That's not to say I wouldn't go back to Artistry. But I'd probably reserve it for a special occasion.

Very disappointing. The menu sounded interesting but the food no up to par. I had a goat cheese and beets appetizer. The cheese was creamy and very good but came with nothing to put it on. It usually comes with crusty bread or something else but here, nothing! I've never heard of eating a piece of creamy cheese on a fork before. The bread served at the table was poor, rolls that you get at the super market, boring, nothing special. My wife had a seafood plate, the fish was dry and mussels sandy. I had the duck, that was good but came with no sides, just a plate of duck! I'm not going back.

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.
