We had a reservation for four (made about a week out) but were sat at a large table that could hold 8 people, which made it difficult to talk, especially because it was loud. We asked for a smaller table and were told none were available. The food was fantastic, but it’s obvious they are still playing with the menu and have the new restaurant kinks (like two different waiters thought they had our table). I think it’s the ideal place for friends or multiple couples to go out together. It’s a little loud to celebrate an intimate date or special occasion with family.

First visit to Graze this week was a good experience. New menu had several choices that looked good. Had the filet and it was cooked perfectly , tender and juicy. Had limited choices for salad and dessert, but those that we ordered were delicious. Good value for our meal.

I want you to make it and wish you the best. There are a lot of things about the service that can easily be improved. I know it's difficult and I do want it to go well for you and am not trying to be negative.

We were excited to try Graze in their new location. We had been to both the Winchester and Limestone locations. This one is even better! The service and the food were excellent. The chicken curry is complex and the steak perfectly cooked. Bar is cozy with fireplace and patio is cute. There is a private dining area as well. We will definitely return.

The new location is much more central and convenient. Nice that it is a quite a bit larger. Very much the same menu so far, with very good execution of the food. While we believe our wait and server staff were relatively new, they really tried to do a great job and owned their work. This will be a successful move for Graze, once they hone a couple of edges.

This was our second time at Graze at the Woodlands. First time we ate on the patio, where it was quiet. We were seated inside this time and it was way too loud to have a comfortable conversation. Andrew, our waiter was superb, just like last time. Portions were smaller than the first time and one of the dishes was not warm enough when served, but they did make good on it.

Graze has something special going on— a bit off the beaten path in terms of location, but still downtown Lexington with easy parking. Their food obviously has a lot of time, effort and thought that go into creating each dish, unlike anything you would find anywhere else in town. Their new location is stunning but yet retains that casual comfortable feel that works for any occasion. Service was prompt and friendly. Highly recommend.

Excellent food all around. 5/5 Odd for upper end restaurant to have so many TVs which absolutely NO ONE was watching except in bar area. Get rid of them and put up some art!!!! Very very loud except few tables outside. Who designs all these restaurants to without some noise quieting elements.

Food was excellent! Service was okay but not great, but we learned it was our server's first night. So, she didn't do terrible for first night. (Didn't remover dishes before food came out so there was some juggling of dishes. She forgot a couple of things that we had to ask for again. She was pretty familiar with menu but we had questions she was not sure about. Hopefully these will be resolved with experience.) We were surprised that some of the wine, on the menu, was no longer available. We will try again. Loved the new decor.

I am so excited about Graze!!! First, it is a beautiful, classy space, staffed by the most friendly yet professional staff I have encountered. But, most importantly, the food is truly AWESOME! Fresh, local ingredients are featured and prepared perfectly. We visited in a weekday night and enjoyed salmon, which was perfectly cooked, on a bed of house made pasta and pesto, accompanied by fresh veggies....yum!!! We began with a salad, which we split because it was huge. This is my new favorite place!!!
Highly recommend!

Food was overall pretty good, the service was horrific! $20 for 2 scallops, that’s a bit much! I realize it’s not been open that long but training is a must! Our server evidently skipped out in that segment! Mentioned the poor service to the manager while exiting the dining area, deaf ears!

Yes. The food was amazing. The filet was done perfectly and the vegetables were fresh and tender. Still working out some kinks on the service but it was the first week after the hard open, the owner was very attentive to each and every table and I'm sure they'll figure it out quickly.

For only being open less than 2 weeks this place rocked. From the greeting at the hostess stand to the sincere “Hope to see you again “ from Haley our waitress it was more than just great food, it was a great experience. Craig DeViliers is one of the finest chefs in this part of the country and now he has the venue to share his gift. We have followed him from the tiny converted country store on Combs Ferry Road to the Woodlands. Soon he will have a larger fan club.

Service was excellent. The food tasted great but the two pasta entrées came to the table luke warm - not at all hot. We sent one back to be heated up and it came back luke warm a second time. Very disappointing showing for this restaurant. The other two entrées were fine.

It seems that the menu needs to include a Small salad with the entrees along with some bread. The servings are too small for a normal dinner although they were quite good. Service was great and will get better when things are more settled.
We will be back.

I expect Graze to be a go to spot in LEX.
