My husband and I were fortunate to return to Lexington and Le Deauville for dinner this time! We had been here back in May for only a drink. We walked in and the awesome bartender, Alice, greeted us! Had a great manhattan, the pate and the duck confit-all amazing! My husband had the escargot and the roasted sea bass-again wonderful!... More

This is the best food in Lexington, Kentucky. We come here time and time again. Bon Appetite. Cotes de Rhone and Tarte Tartine.

Had a Saturday evening dinner with a party of 5 adults and a child at Le Deauville. Though the food is good, it is over-priced. It would be smart to avoid this restaurant. Seating is cramped. Service is extremely slow, even by European standards. The management slaps an automatic 20% gratuity on parties of 5 or more. That's 20% on... More

My husband and I were visiting Lexington, planning and upcoming meeting. We stumbled upon Le Deauville after we had had dinner but we fell in love with the atmosphere on a beautiful evening and went in for a cocktail. The bartender was excellent and we watched many dishes being served. We will be back in 5 weeks and will definitely... More

Held a friend's birthday dinner there. The starting drinks - Manhattans- were real done. The food and bread were excellent. We will be going back for our anniversary dinner. We had an early dinner time of 6:30 but by 8 o'clock the seating area was full. The pace was leisurely and there was no rush to have you vacate your... More

Food and service was wonderful. I started off with a French Martini...very good! I had a Tiger Shrimp and Advocado Salad which I should have just stopped after eating that, but oh no, the mussels were too tempting and tasty! From there, my husband and I split a banana dessert. It was layers of bananas, banana mousse, and flaky pastry... More

Le Deauville is an excellent French Bistro. The menu is extensive and excellent, and is often supplemented by daily specials, Tuesday is all you can eat mussels night. Be sure to try the avocado and shrimp salad. The restaurant is delightful in warm weather with the doors open to the outside. Beware it can get very crowded when Keeneland is... More

Le Deauville even out "Parises" Paris as its appearance is the epitomy of a old bistro. We felt almost disoriented because it just looks so perfect and we were in Lexington KY!. As to the the food, thrilled with the coq au vin; two huge double Kentucky-bred lamb chops and a classic steak and frites. Sophisicated cheese plate. It can... More

When traveling to Lexington I usually try to squeeze a meal here solo as my cliental are not big French Food fans. Love to sit at the bar on Tuesday night and get the unlimited mussels as an app, although I rarely reorder seconds. Guess I just like the idea of more if I want them, but pairing one order... More
