Malone’s - Lansdowne
Prime Bone-in Ribeye
Mixed greens, bacon, tomato; creamy herb dressing
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.
Our dinner and service was excellent. It was early so there was very little noise.
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!
Waited an hour to get our food, it was good, we just had to wait. They were busy.
Amazing food and atmosphere!
Excellent service and wonderful food.
Great service and the ribeye was cooked perfect!
Usually it is pretty good! The bread was very hard and the services wasn’t great upon arrival. We waited for 20 mins after we were seated.
Great as always we had an assortment of items from both malones and drakes menus and even a roll from aqua. Do yourselves a favor and head on into malones
Consistently a great experience with courteous and effective staff. Food is excellent and slight changes in the menu are always a treat. Wonderful bourbon selection!
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.
Enjoyed the meal and night
Malone’s never disappoints. Great food and atmosphere
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.
Great service from Brian. Always good times and great food.
Always a great dinner!
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.
My lobster tail was spectacular and my guest loved her BLT. Our waitress, Shaine K., was terrific.
Service was alittle slow but overall it was an enjoyable dinner.
Great service. Food was perfect as usual.
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 !!
Meet friends for dinner. Whole evening was terrific. Notice a few menu items were no longer offered. But good selection still there.
Great service. Arrived a few min early but was seated once the table was clean. Server was great. Will dine again!
Outstanding! Would definitely come back!
The food and service were great, as always.
Our server was great and food delicious.
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.
Had a great time and food was fantastic as always
Food was great. Service was ok…had to wait to ask for additional items or refill as our waitress was not super attentive when we needed her but everything else was great!
Outstanding as usual, one of our favorite places to eat!
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.
Wonderful meal - everything perfect. Donnie and staff were attentive. Always good :)
It was a busy restaurant due to New Years Eve. The restaurant was quite warm (the weather outside was warm too). Our waitress was working hard!
Every year my wife and I travel from northern kentucky to celebrate our anniversary with family. And we always expect and receive great service and outstanding food. Tonight was no accretion. A perfect visit!
New Year’s Eve
As always Malone's didn't disappoint. We came after a UK basketball game. We were 45 minutes early for our reservation and were able to accommodate. Thank you
