Impromptu date night. The decor is beautiful but the seating is a little uncomfortable for the type of food being served. The pork chop is amazing...very filling.

Decadent and unique interiors are the eye-candy of your visit, as long as you're not too picky about quality of the food.

Menu looked a little pricey, ate at the West African grill instead. The decor of the restaurant from outside was appealing.

A chain with locations in middle east. Fairly wide range of food from pizza and burgers to calamari and steak to Mediterranean fare. Should be able to find something for everyone. Also serve breakfast.

We had a steak with brocollini, crab cakes. Excellent. Plus a good wine list. Review must be 100 characters long.

We ate their twice, once for brunch and once for Dinner. Great setting in downtown Lexington. Decor is special. Bruce was great but a bit pricey. Omelets are great. Dinner was very good and I had lamb. It is definitely worth a first time visit.

I am in Lexington quite a bit on business but had never tried this restaurant, having heard not so great things about it. It's actually pretty good. The mushroom soup is good but could use some actual mushroom pieces in it. Worth a try. The...More

Very close to the convention center so took a colleague to lunch while at a conference. Very cool looking place with great food. I recommend the hot to trot burger or the bourbon burger. Both are delicious. The service was also very good. Decent price...More

I don't have a clue but have been told that breakfast is a draw to the restaurants since they have a good breakfast/brunch menu.

For breakfast or lunch. It doesn't tend to fill up really early, but it does for dinner and turns into more of a bar. I would say for breakfast, but honestly, the children's menu is lacking. If your child loves pancakes... More
