We love Lexington House. The monthly brunches are amazing. Dinner tonight was spectacular. Amazing appetizers...loved the Duck Liver Mousse. Chicken with gravy and biscuits was a meal in itself. For entree I had the Red Snapper. It was perfectly seasoned, sauce amazing (could have dipped anything in it) and muscles tender and delicious. We shared amazing desserts and wine that... More

The food is ok, but totally overpriced. Portions are very small, uncomfortable sitting (if you sit on the high chairs). For the prices they charge, I had to change plates twice as they were chipped which shows a lack of care from managers. We wouldn't come back.

The Lexington House is a small restaurant. They do take reservations. The cocktails are fresh and delicious. The trout was perfectly cooked. The pork was very tender. The fettuccine was excellent. The crispy potatoes were so good. I could eat three plates of this. The oysters were wonderful. The servings are a normal size. On other reviews it was stated... More

We hadn't been in a while so we thought we'd give it another spin. We got a nice corner table outside. Waitress was great, she was bound and determined to find me the right wine for my dinner, and she did! Food was great, atmosphere for was fun and the people watching was top notch. Only down side was there... More

Relaxed atmosphere, excellent service and really good food. I had a specialty burger with brie, carmelized onions, bacon, balsamic vinegar. Highly recommended

The food is expensive but delicious. The plates are small and they suggest sharing. Forewarning: your bill will be high, but the food is well worth it. Their craft cocktails are also particularly delicious. My favorite aspect is the intimate atmosphere with low lighting and small number of tables

If you want an unique experience of dining, the Lexington house is definitely the place to go. Cozy and small, great creative cocktails, great spirits and wine. There is a limited menu but everything is excellent. Please make sure to reserve or you will not be able to get in...

We had the pork cutlet and the red snapper. Both were delicious. I think the cauliflower appetizer was great. The chard and leaks side dish seemed a little high on the vinegar. Overall meal was good and the service was friendly and good.

Opened in September 2013 by Stephen Shelton and Jimmy Marino, the restaurant in Los Gatos, CA, serves a progressive menu dictated by the seasons. Chef Philippe Breneman focuses on ingredients from local, organic, and sustainable farmers, and Shelton and Marino reflect that same philosophy in the bar program they co-curate.
