Went there for date night, and from the very beginning, we felt welcomed in a way that was unlike almost any other place I've been to.

The staff was excellent! They were able to answer any questions that we had, and we're so kind as to give amazing recommendations.

The food came out in a timely fashion, and was top notch!

And all of that is aside from the atmosphere of the place, which was one of a kind! The bourbon bar was a nice place for an after-dinner drink.

This is a place that will be a staple on those special date nights!

Beautiful place and great service but overall not worth the drive out from other side of town. Everything was okay but we just have a few suggestions! If you are going to bother to decant an average wine at the table, then present the cork! Fresh bread & herbed butter was lovely but then the baked Brie was served wrapped in pastry & with a hunk of bread - too much carbohydrate. Some fruit or crisp veg would have been better. The lamb soup was flavorful but was like the cooking liquid from a leg roast or shank braise - could have been dressed with some mint sauce, rosemary or red currant jelly.
Wagyu beef was cooked as ordered but it was a little dry & under seasoned - we smeared the herbed butter on top & it was much better. Served with polenta & tomatoes, again lacking seasoning.
The side of Brussels (from the garden?) was strange we thought : charred, halved sprouts ( almost burnt) with five lumps of fat ( some sort of pork product ) barely rendered and way too large. Balsamic dressing (?) was pleasant.
Didn’t bother with dessert.
Jess, our server, was friendly & efficient. The tables in our area were mostly full but the atmosphere was very subdued.
Price approx $250. Overall definitely not worth it for us. We have had much tastier food elsewhere in Lexington. Nothing to complain about just not great for us.........

We celebrated our 16th anniversary. The waitress or the host didn’t care to ask but that was fine. The ambiance and food was amazing! Great seasonal decor. The castle was a little smaller than I had imagined. Nonetheless, we enjoyed our special evening together here.

Castle Farms was absolutely amazing! We took my grandma there to celebrate her 89th birthday. The menu was full of unique and delicious selections. The rooms are beautiful, and the ambiance is lively and upbeat without being overbearing. 10/10 would recommend to anyone looking for an exciting weekend getaway, a special date night, or celebration!

We enjoyed birthday-brunch at the castle. It was not too busy, and we could wander around the top and bottom levels and grounds. 2nd floor is now closed to wandering unless you are a guest staying at the rooms in the castle.

I was disappointed in the menu. We went for lunch but the menu is breakfast and dinner. Granted, there are some items that are brunch but not many. My burger came out about 10 minutes after my companions' meals. They said there was "a problem with the beef." I asked what it was and our server said they had a problem getting it to the proper temperature. The experience was okay, but nothing extraordinary.

Lovely venue with superb food at reasonable prices. The wait staff were all polite, attentive and accurate. The wine selection is excellent, but the food menu is somewhat limited. Great taste and presentation, just not many choices.

The best restaurant I've visited in Lexington... by far.

Just walking around the castle is amazing. We were able to visit the gardens and ground, first floor, and spend time on the rooftop. The breakfast was great, and affordable for the quality of food and service. Gluten free options were also available. The choices were unique and locally sourced. The service was very good.

What a beautiful place!! We had a romantic dinner, the manager even let us go to the top at sunset. WOW just spectacular. The food was great! Definitely recommend the Lamb, the dish could of been split such a generous portion. The service was over the top! So glad the castle was renovated to current state, just beautiful!

The blackberry jam was delicious. The fries were crisp and perfect. The sausage was made with meat from animals feed almonds which made it taste slightly different but still delicious. The waiter was very polite stating of course to each item ordered. It was overall just a great experience!

For the price of $52 for the wagyu filet, they had the nerve to upcharge $4 for a substitution from grits to vegetables. $140 for 2 pieces of meat and 2 small serviings of vegetables with the tip - drank water.
