The food, cocktails and service were PERFECTION. Pricey but worth it. Hard surfaces make it noisier than I would prefer. We thought this was a place to "save" for special occasions when we are more willing to spend extra $. But we'll be back more frequently just to sit in the bar and enjoy the cocktails that are as good as cocktails get anywhere.

First time here as we were looking in the area for something new. Table was ready, and they obliged with our request to sit by a window. Drinks took a longer than normal time to arrive -- not sure why, as it really wasn't all that busy in the room. Food was excellent; one of us had the scallops (exceptionally well done) with a surprising, but very tasty watermelon and "baby bok choy" (but looked more like watercress) with a mild curry sauce. The other of us had "The Squashes", very tasty tempura of squashes, etc. We also loved the dessert, which we shared: warm, small green apple with whipped brie and surrounded by a kind of prosciutto. Our only problem was with the waiter. While he was adequately attentive, his manner was almost cloying, and too pseudo-sophisticated for the place.

Pete was our waiter and he was absolutely amazing! The way he describes items on the menu makes you want to order the entire menu for dinner. He was very polite, professional, accommodating and he provided excellent service. We went on a Friday night and surprisingly it wasn’t busy but it was also a holiday weekend. The food was great! We will definitely go back and recommend this restaurant.

Artistry has wonderful gourmet meals sourced from local farms. The food was delicious and creatively prepared. Above all else, the wait staff provided impeccable service. My only wish is providing more vegetarian options especially since there is bountiful produce from all the nearby farms.

One of my longest friends and I chose to have a joint birthday lunch for the two of us here. Service was attentive and friendly - very professional! Ambiance was private and quiet for our table. We both had the quiche special which was exquisite- a very creamy, light, and fluffy vegetable quiche. We opted not to have dessert, but the restaurant graciously treated us to delicious chocolate cupcakes. The historical house/inn was a wonderful setting.

Vegetarian options were creative and tasted great. Especially squash blossoms filled with herb risotto.
Chicken and wagu beef tasty but not creative in presentation. Bread warm and delicious. Key to the restaurant was the charming and sincerely friendly wait staff. Wonderful service without being overly intrusive. Bartender very courteous asking if we would like water while waiting for table. Hands down the best restaurant in Lexington MA.

This restaurant keeps getting better and better. Food equal to the best of Boston & Cape/Islands at lower price. Service very attentive, friendly, tactful, prompt. Ambience excellent if you value quiet dining and tables spread apart rather than cheek by jowl. Ample proximate parking. We are regular customers and intend to remain so.

For occasions when you want to great meal in quiet pleasant surroundings this is a great choice. Everything we had was beautifully prepared and tasty. The service was personal and polite. I live in Lexington and this was my first time eating here. I see it as a nice place to be able to take guests -- and I love that it is quiet enough you can talk.

My lamb dish was good but for the price I was paying, I would have expected it to be balanced out with a green veggie.
The bread basket had two small rolls in it. I would suggest four.

The waiter was earnest but undertrained. He provided the wrong information about the special which my colleague and I both ordered. It was not to our liking and we ordered something else but he had obviously not informed the kitchen that there had been a problem and we had to wait quite a while for replacement sandwiches. In my opinion, our replacement order should have taken priority in the kitchen. Nothing was done to hurry things along including coming back for the check despite the hostess having been alerted to our time constraints. Disappointing experience overall and although I have been there several times, I don’t think it is suited to a business lunch.

The ambiance was beautify. Classic NE Inn. Food was good, though I woke up with a violent stomach ache. Can't be sure if it was the food or coincidence.
Service was poor. Waiter was young and inexperienced. He couldn't give any guidance on the food or wine("too young to drink"). Dessert was served without silverware.

Our server Estella was fantastic. This was my first visit here and she explained the menu items to us, and made suggestions. She was very friendly, professional, checked on us to make sure we didn't need anything and was overall fantastic. This is definitely a place I would come back to with my family, with friends. You feel like you are dining in a friend's home and it is very relaxing. The Inn is beautiful, we toured the bar area and got to see a guest room and I will recommend this Inn to anyone visiting from out of town. It is Historic Lexington, Massachusetts, right off the Green. Great find. See you again soon !!!
