Get there to only be told that they have been closed for like 3 weeks. They’re still taking reservations like they’re open. Very disappointed.

After using this app to make a reservation I received an email asking me to confirm my plans to dine at Graze. I confirmed. Imagine our surprise when we drove to the restaurant and found it locked up! No sign on the door explaining the closure. The owners of Graze should have canceled their Open Table subscription when they closed the restaurant. Very disappointed.

We made a reservation and showed up to a sign on the door that said "closed due to staffing issues" - should have removed the option to book reservations.

I wanted to like this as I had been to the old location close to campus and had a great meal there, but..... We had a reservation for 7:15. At 7, I received a text saying the table was ready and to respond that we were on our way. We arrive about 7:12 and our table is not yet ready. A bit confusing but really NBD, so we go to the bar to grab a drink. I ordered a mixed drink which was supposed to include Woodford Reserve, bitters, and a Bourbon soaked cherry....I received Makers Mark (saw her pour it), bitters, and no cherry. My bf ordered a Blue moon which was served without a orange. Annoying but we were not going to cause a scene over it. We are finally sat at our table at around 7:30. A few minutes later the hostess comes by with water and says our server will be over shortly. At 7:48, after receiving no other service we left the restaurant and went to eat elsewhere.

Myself, my wife and another couple were one of 3-4 tables occupied and it took a very long time to get a drink order and our drinks. The flatbread appetizer was ok but had brown kale on top and was lacked a lot of flavor. The main dishes were tasty and came out promptly. The bread pudding desert was great, the ambiance was very pleasant. I did notice that even though there was hardly a crowd, the manager never once went around to the tables to see how everything was going. I saw him at the bar and going in and out the front door talking on his phone. Also, at a place like that and potential clientele, a waitress should not be wearing a tank top with a flannel shirt unbuttoned with her boobs hanging 1/2 way out. Love the place but the manager and waitresses need to get re-education on what service is all about.

Unfortunately, this restaurant is no longer what Graze used to be. Incompetent service and below average food. There are too many good restaurant options in Lexington for anybody to waste their time and money on this place.

A lot of things can be overlooked. Our server was terrible but it was also her first time waiting tables and everything considered she was pretty great. But the food was a total miss and in Lexington that is unforgivable.

I know that the staff is likely overworked and under paid but the service was SO SO slow. Miserably slow. It’s not just like our food took a while to come out but our server was never around. She took a very long time to check on us or anything. We won’t be returning.

All in all it was a good experience. We went for Brunch and enjoyed it. The one negative was the Skillet hash was So Salty we could only manage to eat half. And when we left another patron said the same.

I was so disappointed in the food. My fish tacos were to be served in lettuce not the wrap. I did not complain. But the wrap was tasteless and dry. My friends fried chickens looked so dry, overcooked. Another friend got something that was supposed to be primarily spinach but in fact had very little. So disappointing

My wife and I were driving out in the country near Lexington Kentucky looking for an antique shop when we happened upon a building, almost in the middle of nowhere, that looked like a restaurant. Turns out that this quaint little spot was the original location of Graze. We looked online and made reservations at their new location in a hip neighborhood of Lexington.

The building and decor were quite nice, fitting with the trendy location. Very open and airy with a definite touch of sophistication. So far, so good. Then, things didn’t go sour, but the shine was definitely dulled. We ordered cocktails off of the menu. I can’t recall the name of what I ordered, but it was described as bourbon with a “splash” of lemon juice, Demerara syrup, and lavender bitters. When I order a bourbon based drink, I expect it to look like bourbon - carmel in color. This looked, and tasted, like watered down lemonade. I sent it back and ordered an Old Fashioned. It was nothing to write home about either. When one is in the heart of bourbon country, one would think that you could get a great cocktail.

On to the food. I ordered the Curry Chicken and it was very good with a nice blend of savory and a hint of spice. My wife ordered the pork medallions. It was good, but it was warm at best - should’ve been piping hot. Overall, the food was solidly good, but solidly good doesn’t seem to quite live up to the atmosphere, and cost level of this place. And……the cocktails were a severe disappointment.

I can’t help but feel that Graze should’ve stayed at their quaint little destination place out in the country and not tried to be so upscale and trendy. Because they definitely aren’t pulling it off.

Ordered chicken and waffles. Two of the three were burned and over cooked and waitress didn’t offer to swap out after bringing to her attention. The food was good other than that and very pretty atmosphere. Service was little slow, but it was the morning after a UK football game

It was awful! Service horrible, took forever for food to come out, brought out half the meals, then one more and one person had to continue to wait. When that last meal was delivered, server asked how everything tasted. Well guess one guest would have no idea since you literally just put it down. Server never came back to follow up on that last meal or anything. Had to stop the hostess to tell her the sweet potato purée was awful and to ask for regular mashed potatoes. She brought those out. Tasteless and she didn’t even bring butter, but brought some horrible over peppered gravy. So that was awful. Cut into pork, it was so red and uncooked and that was the last straw. Asked for the manager, the person said your server is the manger. Ummm… no. Told server about the problems when she finally appeared again and she said I’ll have to get my manager. What the heck? Then some person showed up and said she’s take off the dinner with a problem, but wait that pasta wasn’t cooked all the noodles were stick together the veggies on the other dish weren’t even cooked and were supposed to be. Horrible. That manager said well I wasn’t you mr server. Ummm aren’t you representing this establishment. Nightmare. Just wanted to treat our college student to one good dinner. Not this trip! Will be sure parents Facebook page when they ask for restaurant recommendations… I will recommend a solid not go here!

The food was delicious! I got the harvest bowl and it was so fresh- looked and tasted great. Wait staff was very friendly - she let us know we could order chicken tenders and fries for my young daughter even though it wasn't listed on the menu. The atmosphere was good for a casual family dinner, but it is also a cute spot for a date. We will definitely be eating here again.

Been three times and every time it’s gotten worse. Cold food overpriced bad quality sub par menu they never ever get the orders right my steak has been rare every time. Nothing comes out at the same time. Sugary drinks. Just avoid. It’s below average and it’s truly not worth it.
