    We were waiting for 30 minutes after being seated before getting served. Apparently, it was a misunderstanding amongst wait staff and once that was sorted, the service was great. Drinks had very little alcohol which was a surprise because previously, the drinks were much better.

    I love the atmosphere in this restaurant. There is a good view from the restaurant. The best part, of course, is the food. There is a lot of variety (pasta, sandwiches, etc) on the menu and everything is delicious.

    Extraordinary food. Will is a special chef. If you are a fan of Puritan & Co, you will love the Lexington. If you don't know Puritan & Co, check that out too.

    We live close by and love The Lexington - always a great (flavorful) menu, amazing drinks (including a good selection of mocktails) and helpful staff. It was kid friendly and the staff were very accommodating of our toddler (huge parent bonus)

    The food was amazing. We had the beef tartare, bacon wrapped scallops, steak frites, gnocchi, and duck cassoulet and everything was cooked well and tasted great. Service was amazing too. Our server Rhiannon was super friendly and attentive and the food came out quickly!

    Plates were hustled away almost as soon as the last bite entered our mouths. We were asked about dessert while one of us was still eating his main course.

    This is my 3rd visit back and I came based on impressions of the food first, location second, ambience third and service last. The food and menu are great but you need to bring back the brussel sprouts! The service was fine but in this and prior visits seems understaffed as it was hard to get our servers attention, although we were able to flag down others eventually. Seems not that they were inattentive just overwhelmed.

    My favorite restaurant in Boston. Best food, best drinks, and the best service. The menu is always seasonal and the drinks are tasty (and they don’t skimp on the alcohol like many places do). Also incredibly great service. Awesome all around!

    The dining room is very loud. Atmosphere is not warm and welcoming. Service was ok. Menu is very small. The place seems to lack an identity or anything that makes it memorable.
