The food is beyond amazing. The service is impeccable. But you are going to pay for those things, but it is definitely worth every penny for special occasions.

Our waiter was very slow. I ordered the filet with crab leg and when I got it it was cold and I had to wait 7 minutes before I got the butter and utensils for it. Needless to say that stuff should have came way before the meat. The waiter was gone more than helping anyone that I could see.

Service and food are always amazing!!! The atmosphere is awesome! One of the steaks was dry but we have never experienced that here so you can’t be perfect 100 percent of the time. Everything else was top notch and our server Oakley was great!

Spent $170, the service was excellent, the place was really nice. The food, I ordered the twins like I always do, it was way under cooked. I don't ever send anything back, so had to cook it when I got home. Oh not to mention it was our Anniversary.

Steak was over cooked. Presentation was poor. Server was very kind but had way too many tables for what they charge. Pretty disappointed.

This was our first time at Malone's and we will eat there again on another special occasion. We both had steak or steak and shrimp. The steaks melted in your mouth. I was a little disappointed with the mac and cheese because it is Velvetta box and I expected a little bowl of crusty homemade mac and cheese for the price. Our server was wonderful, attentive and the food came out quick. The booths were private and even though the place was packed, you would never have known it! A special night!

We enjoyed everything. We were in the back by a door & we could hear a lot of dishes rattling around and dropped. It was fine though. I appreciated the reservation and our Server was great!

Second time in 3 months we’ve been here & despite them seeming very well staffed the service was slow. Our waitress was great, however, once again the food quality was lacking. I ordered my steak medium, it was cooked very medium-well. For a $33 steak I expect it to be cooked correctly. Very disappointed. We will probably be going out elsewhere from now on.

The food was excellent! The waitress was new, but she did a great job! I arrived at 12:15 PM on a Sunday. My only complaint, the restaurant was very cold inside. My whole family was cold. It was finally getting warmer toward the end of our dining experience.

My wife and I had a reservation for 6pm for a table. (Specifically not a booth). We arrived at 5:45 and weren’t seated until 6:30. Two managers apologized and they comped our appetizer and dessert. However, I just don’t understand why it took so long for us to get seated when we had a reservation. Once we were seated, our waiter was not attentive and I had to ask the bread/water person to refill my Pepsi twice. We are regular Malones customers and this visit was disappointing.

We came to Malone’s for our anniversary dinner. The service was excellent, the staff was very helpful in making recommendations, and the food was delicious. The only flaw of the night was the kitchen switched the temperature of each or our steaks, the only disappointment of our meal. Regardless, the meal was delicious and the outstanding service made for an excellent night of celebration.

I went to Malones for my birthday. We go there frequently (at least monthly) and have always had a great experience; however, we likely will never be back. I had the worst steak I have ever had (on my birthday of course) and I understand that is often out of their control. However, when I politely described the situation to the server assistant, server Tyler, and manager Ashley, they all felt the need to repeatedly tell me that is how it always tastes because they’re “known for generously seasoning their meats.” I know how a Malone’s steak is supposed to taste - I frequent the restaurant for this reason. I was so turned off by the steak that I did not want a replacement. It made me sick. However, if a $45 steak has made me sick, I shouldn’t have to pay for it. They also treated me as though I was just trying to get a free steak even though I clearly regurgitated the one bite of the steak that I had. Finally, the manager RELUCTANTLY took it off the bill and said “well we hope to see you again…maybe” as she walked off. This is not the Malone’s experience we are used to and have seen the service and food quality slowly decline at this restaurant. I am thoroughly disappointed as I have lost my favorite restaurant in Lexington and did NOT have a happy birthday.

Every time I go to Malone’s is a great experience. I love going there. The food is the absolute best. However, this past trip was less than appealing and may be just an out of the ordinary experience.

First, when we got to the table I noticed there was a few long strands of hair wrapped around my silverware. Yuck. I notified the server and the problem was fixed in two seconds! Nice work!

Second, when our food came to the table, my son’s girlfriend pulled a big long piece of steel wool used in dish cleaning out of her macaroni and cheese!! Double Yuck! But no problem, they took the meal of our bill and sincerely apologized. Again, nice job.

Last thing, I ordered the Twin Filets Oscar Au Gratin (market price) which was an excellent choice but when I got my bill was charged $48.99. Any of the regular Twin Filet dinners ranged from $30-$33. That was $15 more than the others and all I good was a very minuscule portion of crab meat. That’s not right. If you are gonna charge me $15 more for the crab topping make sure I get enough to justify charging that.

With all that being said, I will continue to patronize this great establishment and understand that Malone’s always goes above and beyond to make sure my dining experience is top notch. Keep up the great job!!
