    We started outside with drinks and moved inside for dinner. Service was very good, with one minor misunderstanding about an appetizer. The server handled it very professionally and smoothly (correct app was brought out quickly). We spent about 3.5 hours and all three of us were very impressed by the presentation and flavor of our three varied meals.

    The cocktails are really to die for. I wish I could have tried them all. They were unique, well made, and so flavorful. The one with sesame and honey cream cheese killed me. So good. The food was delicious as well, as was the service, but the drinks are the reason I will definitely return.

    Lexington never disappoints… The food and service are great. Beautiful room as well. An extra special shout out to Thom the bartender who is so welcoming in makes the experience even better! We like that you’re changing up the menu a little bit, but it would be great to see some new items as well.

    Service was a little spotty, but that was partly because we had a server who was just on their third day there. The food was very impressive. The sun was in our eyes when we were seated, but it quickly went behind the trees. The place feels very casual but the food is top-notch.
