This restaurant was an awesome experience, the bread was great, the service was great and I enjoyed my meal (the veal picatta). We also got desert which was good although the creme brulee was served cold.

Excellent food and service. Try the lobster pot pie, very rich with perfect crust. Two rooms, bar area and cozy dining area with keyboard player on weekends. Waiter was very good and personable. Will be back next visit to Lexington!
