Great restaurant in a lovely part of the city. Good traditional USDA steak well presented food and great service. Not the cheapest restaurant in NYC but certainly a fair price for an overall excellent dining experiance. We dined as a family of 5.

Outstanding service and ambience. Overall the food was wonderful. The wagyu steak is incredible, as is the porterhouse and the filet. My father tried the pastrami short ribs. I had a bite and was shocked at how tough the meat was. Don't order it. Sides were delicious, especially the thin, crispy onion rings. My only other criticism concerns the complimentary popovers. This was my second time here and on both occasions the popovers were overly heavy, as opposed to being light and fluffy.

After a bumpy start with regards to service (benefit of the doubt - maybe they were short-staffed?), our waiter appeared to make a cognizant effort to turn things around, and our food was really delicious! The popovers were to die for, the Greek salad was terrific, and the t-bone steak for 2 was perfectly cooked and seasoned. Love the ambiance with the curved brick arches in the ceiling with upward-facing lighting. There was low-volume music in the bar area only... wish we could have heard it in the background where the tables were too. I am definitely looking forward to going back!

Busy night and the restaurant seemed to be unable to handle it. Service was quite slow in comparison to other nights that we had dined here and the food was not as well prepared. When we arrived we explained to the staff my wife's allergy as always, but by dessert they had forgotten and served her a dessert which she could clearly not have. The replacement desert was not especially good either. I think that the most upsetting part was no one from the restaurants management came over at any point to apologize or discuss the error with us. For the price of the meal, I was disappointed overall.
They did however remember to bring my daughters birthday cake, and it was delicious and well presented(credit were credit is do).

i almost never write reviews but my experience at Lexington Club was so good, i just had to. We were there on a weekday night. Restaurant was about 1/3 full and maybe that helped it be much quieter than most NYC restaurants. That allowed reasonable conversation with my wife without having to strain--it was a pleasure! Salad appetizer, frankly now a few days later, i don't remember which it was, was very fresh. And large enough for 2 people. The filet mignon i ordered was among the best steaks i've had anywhere on the planet. I'm looking forward to our next visit. I give Lexington Club my highest grade!

Our reservation was for 18:30 and Bar was busy for happy hour. The restaurant was very quiet what sent me bad vibes to start. When waitter came to our table he was very pleasant and very helful. The service was fast and food (ceasar salad, meat, side orders) was good. No bad comments about this place

We haven’t been back since it was the Arlington Club, the food was much better this time!
The wine list was short but well priced! The staff could be more informed about what
the menu items are, could not get answers to questions, waiter kept saying he had to
check with the kitchen!

I called in to make a reservation for my grandfathers birthday. The grand kids were going to take him out for his birthday. Assuming we would get dessert to celebrate and surprise him, I called the day of to remind the restaurant.

At the end of the meal, we waited for dessert to come out, and nothing came. My cousin reminded the waiter that we were celebrating a birthday, and he said he would bring something out. 10-15 minutes went by, and eventually my grandfather was getting tired (he's 87 years old) so we got the check and began walking out. I made a comment to the hostess who told us that they do not give out free cake, but somehow the dessert was still on our bill.

Overall, I was very disappointed with this, as my grandfather was looking to end the night with something sweet.

To start off the hostess was somewhat rude and unpleasant. However, our waiter Tom was wonderful and as you’d expect in what should be a nice high end steak place. Anything high end other than the prices though has gone by the wayside. There’s an active happy hour and tables with kids pulled off the jitney in their flip flops. The food was very good but not exceptional. The popovers are a nice touch.

We are fussy wine drinkers but don't want to spend $250+ for a bottle of wine at restaurants.
Have enough excellent wines at home and like to cater BYOB establishments with reasonable fee. Neighborhood restaurants like Lexington Club should not be charging $50 corkage fee. Follow the example of nearby Orsay ($35) or any of the Danny Myer's excellent restaurants ($35) which both have much better wine list and very knowledgeable sommeliers. While we were there, I requested to talk to the General Manager but she was bartending and never came even though the restaurant was about 20% full. Not sure how one manages the restaurant and attends the bar at the same time.

The same reason the Arlington club did not make it is the reason this restaurant won’t make it. The food is average. The state quality is not superior to all of its competitors. The service is horrific. Unqualified wait staff. Long wait for drinks. Long wait for food. Follow up terrible.
I do not recommend this restaurant on any level for any reason
