Arrived around 8:15p on a weeknight. Service was substandard at best as no one seemed to be my waiter and it was unclear who was suppose to be. Food was great, so at least the kitchen staff had no gone on “we are almost closed” mode.

All computers were down. If staff had not informed us we would not have known. The usual wonderful service TY for a lovely 18th Bday for my granddaughter. Her favorite spot in Lexington for food!

Malone's - Lansdowne never disappoints. It has become my favorite Lexington restaurant because the food is always good, the prices reasonable, and the service exceptional. Will eat there every opportunity I get.

Definitely not the same place we started going to 10-12 years ago, portions are way down and overall feeling of a nice sit down restaurant is no longer there. We drive 2 hours each way every year for my birthday, my wife’s birthday and our anniversary because Malones has been such a good experience. Hate to say it but we’re going to start looking for another option closer to home.

My wife ordered the pasta dish with kalamata olives. It was oversalted to the point that she couldn't eat it. She ate 2 bites and just shared my steak.
It also tasted like they had poured olive juice all over it. One of the worst dishes that we've ever been served.
My steak was great as always.
Service was ok except after telling a server about the dish, no one came to talk to us at all.
Very displeased. Especially after an $80 bill.

Regular customer at all of Malones and will be back. Saturday night was not up to par. My $60.00 ribeye was overcooked and of poor quality. Baked potato was barely warm. Service was a little slow but I understand that, our waitress was working too many tables. Pass on that !
My Bud Lite was excellent !!

Overall food and service were great. If I have a complaint it would be the booth was too small for a party of 4. We all felt cramped and elbowing and stepping on one another under the table as we ate.

I’m sure staffing issues caused much of our experience. Waiter seemed rushed and rushed us on ordering.
For a steakhouse the steaks were not cooked to temperature, and for the price should have been much better.
But again, everyone is having issues and we were just glad they were open after a big snowfall.

Jason was our server and he was superb. However, the server assistance was non existent. We were never offered refills of water or bread and the dishes stacked up on the end of the table (a very small table for two) until the manager came and removed them. And he came by because I needed to inform someone that my husbands steak was grossly over cooked. He fixed that but the crab he also ordered was cold. He would not let me return it because he was aggravated and hungry. It was our anniversary and we always choose Malone’s for our celebration because the food and service are usually exemplary. Last night fell far short of our expectations and the manager tried to fix it by comping our meal. This was not our intention and while we appreciate the gesture our evening was spoiled. We usually go to the Malone’s in Palomar and maybe we should have last night. I think in the future we may choose somewhere else to celebrate; our time and money are too important to worry about a bad experience.

I always enjoy Malone's. It's a local treasure for a high end dining experience sans the exorbitant pricing and pretentious standards. It's always a happy atmosphere whether just opened or mid-dinner shift and the servers are very well trained and experienced. They don't mess around about who's going to be their representatives.

The food is pricey but it's quality grub. For two it was about $145 which includes two strips, sides and a glass of wine Tasty steaks, sushi and generous portions. There's a huge variety of bourbon of course. Our server seemed stretched thin as it was a holiday but he was super professional, easy going and tentative. Wanted to invite him to sit and have a bite to eat, I empathize with service industry.

Anyway, from the moment you walk in the door to when you leave you feel like you belong whether in jeans and a polo or a snazzier choice. Always friendly folks running around making the experience. Highly recommend out of all our steakhouses in Lexington for a primo meal and comfortable ambience.
