It was our first time at this restaurant and what a find! The steaks and sides were delicious and the popovers were superb. The service was friendly and wonderful and the owner came over to introduce himself. What a special place!

This place is rebounding under new management. Thought service was very attentive and the owner/maitre D was excellent. Food was cooked perfectly. Very enjoyable. Went with the porter house for 2, which was excellent. Smashed potatoes also a must. Caesar salad good but standard. Previous visits had the Cote De Boef for 2 (i'd skip unless you know you like this cut) and Rib Eye for 1. Venue itself is excellent as usual and maintains classic steakhouse feel with an urban/historic edge to it.

Need to offer smaller cuts of steak (smallest filet was 12 oz), and some less expensive bottles of wine. We had a lovely waiter who suggested sharing different plates that were large, which worked out well.
Good steak house with fair prices. Nice atmosphere and tables not heaped on top of one another.

I had made a reservation for 1 PM but got there early and was told they only open at 1. They would not allow me in at all. Once seated it seemed like they were not ready for customers yet.
The waitress ( who's name was Cat/ Kat?) was a gem! She had explained to my wife and teenage children what was different between the types of steaks. The steaks were just perfection! I have been to many steakhouses and this was the best steak I have ever had. The only problem with the meal was with the Hot popovers were cold inside. I think this was because they had just opened and they were leftovers from the day before.

Walter, Sean, was a little overbearing. Just too much. Also NY strip good piece of meat but way too salty. No mention of seasoning on menu. Mentioned this to waiter and he brought over the mgr who said next time to tell waiter no seasoning but there is no mention of seasoning on menu description. Also mgr actually took the shallot which was served with the steak and placed it on top of the steak and suggested I should have eaten it that way . R U kidding me. No one tells me how to eat when I order a steak that's what I want. I'll eat the shallot separately and use steak sauce if I choose. Last year same time was excellent which is why we went back this year. Was offered dessert on the house because of the experience which was a nice gesture but because of the name change I think something's up. Won't go back and I bet they're out of business next year.

Since the Arlington club changed to the Lexington Club, something is different. The service was exceptionally good, the food was better (they added some items like fish tacos which were great)!
The owner/manager came over and chatted & wanted to know if he could do anything for us.
I would highly recommend this restaurant.

The service from beginning to end was outstanding. Being welcomed by the owner - who stored out jackets and took us to our table- as well as the professional waitress was wonderful

The steaks are excellent, the portions and quality of the food were top notch.

This is a place we will be returning to often!

Nice steakhouse look, comfortable atmosphere and Good Food. The Rib-eye for two was especially satisfying. Would go back there anytime. The service was attentive and helpful on menu fare. The desserts were creative and "just right". Nice find.

Been here 3 times in past few months. Great food. Great service. So nice to be in any space in NYC where the ceilings are 10-25 feet high. Have ordered a bunch of salads, apps and steaks and everything has been amazing. Want to become “regulars” here. I guess I just gotta keep going.

We stumbled upon Lexington Club on a recent trip to Manhattan. We were initially drawn to the restaurant for its decor/vibe for a special date night. Upon being seated in Henry's section, we were immediately impressed by his professionalism, knowledge of the menu and friendly disposition. The food was fantastic; we ordered the frito misto, filet mignon, smashed potatos, brussel sprouts and creme brule. We definitely have this on our list for future visits to the city and highly recommend Lexington Club to others! Ask for Henry - you won't be disappointed.

I have dined here before and had a better experience than tonight. Not sure if the management has changed but the restaurant seems to be working out kinks -- or perhaps I caught them on a challenging day. The service was spotty which, at their price point, I wouldn't expect. Ours was an early reservation and the restaurant was not crowded; it felt like the waitstaff was down a person and the others were stretched. The Maitre D' was very attentive to a very attractive woman but not so much to others... which didn't go unnoticed. It took a little longer than usual to get wine etc. Overall, the food was good (just the Dover Sole was not, at all), and the bus boys were lovely and willing to bring extra of the fabulous popovers. I would certainly go back and give it another try.

I have gone here many times when in NYC, but this was the first time I was not happy.
I took a friend for his birthday. They seated us right in front of the door and so every time
the door opened it was freezing. We kept our coats on. Finally the hostess came over and
said we have a booth (which was vacant from the time we walked in). She appears to be
overwhelmed for some reason.

My impression was that it is under new management. However the waiter was excellent
and it was evident that he was trying to make up for the rudeness of the hostess.

Did not know Arlington Club existed, before my meal there, do now and would recommend to any all. Phil was our server and he was great. He is authentic New York, so if you are from out of town and want to meet New Yorkers, Phil is your guy! Food, drink and overall service was outstanding as well! I will be back!

Myself and my partner visited while staying in New York, we live in London and often dine out. We walked by one day and saw the restaurant, then decided to book. We loved it, the food was second to none, the service was brilliant, the owner was there and came to introduce himself which was a nice touch. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a nice meal out, the steak was amazing, and the mac & cheese side was the best I have ever had.

Noise level overbearing, service lacking warmth, wine prices 50% too high. Ordered tomahawk for 2 + porterhouse for 2 (total cost $ 285.00) the meat arrived cold, was sent back to reheat after 10-min but came back well done and dry tasteless instead of medium well originally ordered. Pointed out to the owner who could not care less. So we ended up giving our porterhouse to our kids dog. The cream spinach tasted like baby food.
Would never give this establishment a second chance. We’re Peter Lugers aficionados so we know Quality not theatrics

I’ve been here a few times. I like it so much that I often dine alone. The staff is always friendly. & lately they seat me at the same table. Makes me feel special 🤗
One day I saw a post on their Instagram page & all day I had a taste for what I saw. So I had to go. And yup!! It hit the spot !! The awesome thing was, even though it was a Friday night they still got me a table.

A first class experience with terrific food, too notch steaks and service. Prices are steamy, but you get a lot of space and the noise level is thus acceptable. A notch up from TBar in all departments. Reliable. Hope it sticks around for a generation.
