Tulip is always as good as you expect, great menu staples and nightly specials that are inventive and flavorful.
My new favorite restaurant in Lexington. Food is great and the service is perfect. The prices are reasonable and the menu is outstanding. Wish they were open for lunch!!!!
We went for the special entrees with Carolina shrimp.. Fabulous goat cheese salad. Awesome ham-wrapped shrimp stuff with crab. Wonderful ravioli. Amazing she-crab soup. Excellent service.
My mother and her husband were in town and we decided to have a late dinner here. Our waitress was prompt, explained the specials and made us feel comfortable. The food was great! We were very happy with both the food and the service.
My wife and I love the food here but the accoustics are terrible. You can barely have a conversation in the place it is so loud. Great oysters along with a wonderful menu are worth the visit but I hope you have a quieter time than we have had.
This is a charming restaurant: attentive staff, delicious food, very comfortable.
We love the oysters Rockefeller. Everything we have had there is awesome. The service is great.
I would highly recommend The Tulip and will certainly return. Our food and drinks were incredible, the host was very friendly and the waiter knew the menu inside out.
I always enjoy both the food and atmosphere at The Tulip. However, on this particular visit, the noise level was intolerable. We sat as far away from the bar as possible, but still could not hear to talk. If you go, be sure to have the she-crab soup. It is outstanding-a meal in itself. Highly recommend this restaurant for a casual night out.
The only thing preventing me from giving four stars was the noise--I didn't expect it to be so noisy. Besides that it was a lovely dining experience--it's a very attractive restaurant and our food was excellent. We had the burger and a seafood special. Will definitely return but will ask to sit away from the bar. :)
Last night was the first time I dined at Tulip. Very nice menu. The food was superb! Kudos to the chef with the nice touch who graciously made some substitutions on the salmon special. The food and wine prices were more than reasonable. The manager/owner checked on us often and was most helpful. My only complaint in what was a perfect dining experience was the noise level - 2 nearby tables had very loud parties making it difficult for our group of 3 to converse. Other than that I wouldn't change a thing and will go back hopefully on a quieter night.
Was so loud couldn't carry on normal conversation in restaurant portion. Service very slow. Was told the "special" of the day was $25 but when bill came was $35. Also dessserts were terrrible...Husband ordered a fruit tart type which was only whipped cream with a few berries on top. I ordered a pound cake type of thing with mascerated strawberries...cake was so dry could barely swallow and the berries were just a few sliced. They did take the cake off the bill when I asked.
The food is spectacular. The service varies on different nights. Would have received a 5 star if we would have been seated where the noise level wasn't on 100.
My wife and I love to come here on date night. The food and service are both equally fantastic. I'd highly recommend trying the short ribs they're fantastic!
1st trip through Lexington and glad to find this place. Very good food and great service.
Varied menu with excellent choices. Food was perfectly prepared. We were there on a Friday night and had a difficult time conversing due to the high noise level.
We love the Tulip! Food never disappoints. Bar can sometimes get too loud.
The service and food was outstanding the menu is outstanding when my wife and travel to Lexington KY this is our #1 place for dinner. Great job to the staff and management I recommended it to all my MSTATE alumni in Lexington for the football
Each item was well prepared and fresh. The wait staff sufficient. On the night we were there it was nearly impossible to hear each other.
I've never been disappointed in the food at Tulip and I've tried lots of things. The salmon special this time was SO good. The burger is one of the best in town. However, parking is so tight there that we go less & less. The lot is tiny & Suggins customers fill it. This time the whole area was packed for some reason; had to drop my mother off and drive around and around before finally parking on the street a block away. One of the reasons I no longer live in San Francisco or Chicago is that I got tired of wasting my life hunting for parking, so I really resist going to a place around here that's that hard. We also generally go pretty early because Tulip gets very noisy when it's crowded but we were later this time and it was deafening.
