Steak was too salty and under cooked. I ordered med rare it came out rare. Fried chick was good but overdone. Pasta was bland. Salad was soggy. The sushi was good the bread was amazing. Service was top notch.

50% of the meals were either cooked incorrectly or had something missing. Service was unfriendly at Best by the waiter. If not for additional staff, we would have had an absolutely horrible evening

I’ve gone to this Malone’s several times but Saturdays service was by far the worst I’ve ever had. I had a reservation of 6, my wife and I arrived 5 minutes after the initial 4 it took at least 10 minutes for us to put in a drink order. I asked for lemons for the water and bread. It was another 10 minutes on bread and I had to ask a 2nd time for lemons. I ordered the Kobe burger and asked for no tomato and specifically the sauce on the side, the burger had the tomato on it and I received the sauce on the side but also it was on the burger. Nothing egregious but I’ve always had excellent service at this Malone’s location and this was for my grandfathers birthday and this experience was rather bad.

As usual excellent food and the service was outstanding - very attentive and friendly. Noise level was loud and hard to have a conversation - will request quieter seating next time

Steak was over cooked again. Sweet potato side dish was dry. Just not consistent. But good enough to recommend people not avoid it.

Seated in same area previously when unserved to start. Wait staff was amazing and attentive. Food was ok. Lexingtonian Salad was great, best part of meal. Kids steaks were medium, ordered well-done. Also steaks were overly salted. Too much!

We were a bit surprised that the restaurant was full of high school kids, homecoming event I guess. I guess it was okay but not our preference for dining out at such a nice place. One recommendation would be to provide a utensil to dish out the "group" house salad. We had to use a butter knife that had not been used by any of us 4 when we enjoyed our delicious appetizers.

Only a yearly event, so not a regular. Last year, my wife & I getting seated in a "hall way" with more traffic than I-75, I blamed myself for only making reservation a few weeks in advance. This year reservations was made over 2 months in advance with a follow up phone call, Mr. PERSONALITY, put us right next to a table of 10 and.........never mind.......I was just directed to shut up & we won't be back!!!!!

The service we received was excellent and all of our food was prepared perfectly. It was delicious as always. There were times we felt as if we were being pushed to leave but I knew that couldn't be the case since the place was almost empty. I'm guessing the servers/waiters were just very efficient. :)

Good food and service overall. Noise level seated at table near center of room was manageable, but a bit noisy. Will return as the food and service are consistently good or better.

Maybe...my boyfriend drove in from Louisville because his 40th birthday request was to eat at Malone’s. I made the reservation and thought it would be great for his birthday. He ordered the most expensive steak medium and baked potato loaded no sour cream, and they brought it out cooked medium rare. The steak was sent back. When they brought the food back out the steak was more cooked, but a little chewy (probably the effect of having the same steak on and off the grill), also the baked potato had sour cream on it. He was wished happy birthday at the hostess stand, so I’m sure my comments went thru on open table (and I also called to confirm the morning before we went). We had just been to dinner at Malone’s September 10th for my mom’s birthday and they brought her cake, so I thought it would be great for his birthday. We didn’t get cake. We paid $160 for a meal that (his) was not correct at all, and honestly I was very disappointed.

Usually go 1-2 times a month. The past two trips the service and amount of time waiting for the next step was awful. 20 minutes to get bar drinks, 15 minutes after finishing our meal for the server to stop by so we could get a check, another 10 minutes to return with the slip to sign. I enjoy a leisurely meal, but it felt like we waited an extreme amount of time for many parts of the meal, even so the water guy felt bad and was apologizing.
