Really nice place to eat!
Great food, service and atmosphere. Sushi was excellent.
This is our go to dinner spot. Love it.
Zen has become one of my new favorite restaurants. I will definitely be returning.
This is our go to sushi place. We always get the chefs Choice. It’s fresh and enjoyable. Definitely recommend
My husband is Japanese and has very high standards when it comes to sushi and Japanese food. We have never had a bad experience at Zen. The fish is fresh and beautifully prepared, the atmosphere is quiet with music for ambiance and the wait staff is attentive without being intrusive.
Nice evening. Closed it down with some great staff there, very friendly and great sushi 🤙🏼
Best sushi in Lexington by far! Our waitress was great and helped us navigate the menu, the raw sushi was amazing and so fresh.
Continue to have good food and service at this restaurant. Not real loud so you can have a conversation and nice atmosphere to dine in.
Creative and delicious food; great saki presentation, and wonderful service!
Best Nigiri in Lexington!
Wonderful service and knowledgeable staff.
The best food we have had in a long time. Definitely plan to make the trip more often!
Best sushi in Lexington for quality and reasonably priced.
Glad we went there for date night! The service was fantastic and the seafood was wonderfully fresh.
One of our favorites. The food is excellent.
The service was excellent the sashimi was perfect could not ask for a better sushi restaurant.
Fantastic quality and setting.
We like this place. Not crowded, quiet, good service. When our server forgot (not for long) to bring us a second sake after we ordered it, she comped it for us. I had the curry udon with shimp and flounder, and was pleased that it was a seafood broth. Delicious, piping hot, and way more than I could eat in one sitting. My companion had 2 pieces of mackeral nigiri and ramen. He said both were good, "but not the best ramen ever." Overall a nice experience. Next time we want to try one of the coctails that we saw being served across the room.
Amazing food beautifully presented. Our server was friendly with perfect timing and made excellent recommendations. Can’t wait to go back:
Looking for sushi? This is the place. Food was fresh and presentation was flawless. We will be back. Definitely recommend!!

Server is great hope we have her next time. Very patient and very knowledgeable.
Went for the Restaurant Week menu and both the food and service were impeccable
Great food and service. Sushi was very fresh and delicious.

We stopped in for Lex Restaurant Week and the specials were delicious! Great combo of food and flavors. Will definitely be back.
Excellent seafood quality! Delicious
We have always loved this restaurant. This time they outdid themselves with the restaurant week menu.
Great sushi restaurant, fresh and really good quality.
Great food and awesome atmosphere. Would recommend to anyone. GREAT!!!!!!!!!!!
Our Lexington go-to restaurant for a healthy meal. The sushi has always been fresh and they have an excellent sake list. I highly recommend.
Our experience was amazing! We went super early on a Monday night, but the restaurant filled up fast. Service, food, and value exceeded our expectations. We ordered off of happy hour menu and pricing was very reasonable. The food tasted great and we were very impressed with quality. Definitely suggest ordering different things for the table to try! Excited to go back and try other things off the menu.
Love your food and service. Music was a little loud and repetitive.
Dumplings were the best. I also enjoyed the lavender cloud sake. This was our first meal here, it was nice. Seems more suited for lunch perhaps, plenty of takeout orders while there, but overall I loved it
You can always count on fresh and expertly prepared food here. I like my sushi with very little sauce drizzled on top of the rolls. They will happily accommodate, just ask.
Best sushi in town
Great as always!!!! The Bourbon TSO Chicken is to die for!
This is not your typical Japanese sushi restaurant. The owner is Japanese and he has gone to a lot of trouble to make this restaurant completely authentic with large selections of Japanese whiskey, sake, and even shochu. There are selections on the menu that you would not find in most Japanese restaurants in America. Ex: hamachi kame - delicious. The chef also takes requests not on the menu. My husband is Japanese. I, myself, have been to Japan at least 12 times. Our experience at Zen Sushi and Sake was excellent. I highly recommend it.
