Moving our senior at UK into apartment and celebrated over dinner. Excellent choice for dining and look forward to returning sooner than later!
Excellent food and service - top notch in all areas!
Amazing! Our waitress was so wonderful. Offered great suggestions and got us out of our comfort zone! Oyster bruschetta was fabulous. Cauliflower steaks - awesome! And the salmon, fabulous. Everyone followed protocols that felt safe yet welcoming. Thank you!!!
Wonderful experience celebrating birthday. Great cocktails and amazing food.
Outstanding as always-
They are doing an excellent job following safety guidelines. Cocktails and entrees were fabulous . The portions were generous for fine dining. The presentation was superb and the wonderful bread selection an added plus. Overall, an amazing dinner.
Amazing food, great atmosphere. The server could have been a little better but overall, we will definitely be back!
Coles is one of our favorite restaurants regularly. The new outdoor seating area is fabulous and very comfortable even with some heat, they have added fans and a tent so it was not too hot. We are so happy that Coles is open and have added this new option!
Food was quite good but both entrees (in our group of 2) had small problem - one entree the potatoes were way too salty (and we like salty) and the other entree could have used a little more flavor and texture.
I would go there again for sure - still less expensive than similar restaurants.
Love the outdoor tent seating! You are doing a great job under extraordinary circumstances!
Outstanding, professional & safest place in town! They have done an excellent job!!!
It was fantastic. Our waiter was great and the social distancing was perfect. Everything was cooked perfectly. Highly recommended!
This restaurant is taking COvid guidelines Very seriously. We had an enjoyable evening and the staff was on top of keeping everyone safe, while letting you experience a great meal. With fewer tables, the atmosphere isn't as vibrant as before, but we enjoyed our meal and were not rushed. Thanks Coles.
Seating was nice, felt the food was good but not as good as it should have been for the price
Food was delicious, service excellent, and measures taken during this pandemic were top notch.
The food and service was great, however the temperature inside the restaurant was a bit more hot that usual. My friends and I were sweating while eating because it felt hot. Maybe it was because we sat near a window, however because our reservation was at 8:15pm, the majority of our time at the restaurant occurred when the sun had already set.
One of my favorite places to dine. Warm Brussel Sprout salad is always so good. Service is always top notch. Highly recommend
Coles is our favorite restaurant in Lexington! The ambience is so charming and the food is always exceptional. The staff truly cares about your dining experience. It is such a treat to dine at Coles!
Both of our dining experiences this past week in mid-July were fabulous! Thank you to Marilyn and the entire staff that make Cole's on Main our go-to choice!
We'll be back! Ready or not! And, my husband and I knew full well that you are always on the ready! Thanks for your flexibility and great tasting meals and delightful wines.
If permitted to travel again, you will see us in the autumn of 2020!
They did a FANTASTIC job with ALL of the COVID precautions!! The best compliance I have witnessed!
This was an excellent meal! The only issue we had were...the nats. We had a couple of them hovering our table through the whole meal. Not really avoidable with the season and doors opening and closing though.
Food was good, waitstaff was amazing. We were checked on repeatedly.
Coles is our favorite Lexington restaurant. The food is amazing, and our go to for date nights and special occasions. They checked our temperature at the door and guided us to our table effortlessly. A great experience even during COVID.
Wonderful food and ambiance. The service was a bit off. Slow to greet and no menus provided for quite some time. Once we got into a rhythm, it was fine.
We requested outdoor dining, and were seated in the “alley,” which we love. The staff at Cole’s are superb on every level. Couldn’t be better.
A consistently excellent experience. Everything was prepared to perfection and the server was on point. Highly recommend!
Our service was amazing! Our food was delicious! The manager came to our table to ensure quality was superior as always! Cole’s is an excellent restaurant and Cole and his staff does an above expectation job to ensure every aspect of a dining out or carry out experience is superb. Lexington, KY is fortunate to have such a fine dining establishment!
Food was excellent, atmosphere was great. Only issue was table of three couples who had to much to drink. Kind of loud and was dropping the F bomb pretty often. They left pretty quick (maybe 20 minutes) after we arrived. Wine list was great!
We LOVE Coles! The pork chop is by far our favorite in the best in town! Thank you for making it a joy to come back and dine in one of our favorite little spots!
Excellent food, attentive professional service, with General Manager checking on every table, and sincerely cared about how guests were doing. This is about my 10th visit, and I have never had a sub par meal yet.
This was the first time back since last fall and the meal was excellent! They have paid attention to details to make the meal enjoyable as well as safe with the current restrictions. This was certainly a great experience and I would highly recommend Coles. Make a reservation before you go. It’s well worth it.
Cole’s is back! There may be fewer tables but it’s just as good as always…
The food was superb, the crew was one of the most friendly I've seen in quite some time. One of my new favorite Lexington restaurants for sure! I even requested a photo of Joe Exotic be placed at our table and they obliged, which was amazing.
Our favorite special occasion restaurant in Lexington. Food is 100% always been excellent, staff responsive and friendly, and a great ambiance inside. Don't forget to call ahead to see if they can have Key Lime Pie for your dessert...it is incredible.
Wonderful food! Great date night!!!
