Typical French Style Restaurant....good food, slower service

This is a nice restaurant, with a good looking menu. We visited with our friends on an evening that was very enjoyable from a temperature standpoint. All doors and sides of the building were open to the outside, which made us feel like we were not in Lexington (our home town). The atmosphere is... read more

After reading some earlier reviews of this place we were more than pleasantly surprised by our good experience there last Fri night. We had a reservation at nearby A La Lucie but when we arrived they gave us a hard time. We left and went down the block to Le Deauville where they greeted us promptly and sat us at... More

After dining at LeDeauville on numerous occasions, yet feeling that perhaps I hadn't given them a fair shot---I took clients for dinner when they requested French cuisine. What a nightmare. One diner ordered an appetizer which included pesto. When it arrived it was nothing more than basil and garlic. When asked, the waiter replied "we are out of cheese tonight".... More

This is a nice restaurant, excellent menu, and very comfortable the weeknight we visited. The mussels special was wonderful. Everything was fresh and wonderfully prepared. Slow service, and none too helpful or friendly, but it was a relaxing evening, and isn't that the French way? Don't go here if you are in a hurry - make it the evening's destination... More

The waiter was clueless! The worst service ever. No water refills, never inquired about coffee and dessert. No pen with the check. Very aloof waiter.The highlight of the night... was getting out of there. We think this place must be a front for something else, b/c, no restaurant could stay in business with this type of service and I have... More

I stumbled upon this restaurant while getting my bearings in Lexington. I am vegetarian and though the menu is destinctly meat and seafood oriented, they were exceedingly gracious about accomodating my diet with delicious food. This is a place of artistic and culinary delight. The wait staff couldn't have been more attentive and wonderful! This one gets my full endorsement.... More

I think the atmosphere was the best thing. The interior really did remind one of a French bistro, and the menu was classic with a couple of Moroccan items (which is not unusual in France anyway). Wine list overpriced I think, and not as cleverly chosen as it could have been. I thought the short rib special was excellent. The... More

One of the best restaurants I've ever been to. Pricey, but great food and wine.

Was a fan of Le Deauville until recently. Hope it was just an "off night", but am sensing that poor service and overpriced specials are becoming the norm. Wine selection is poor and overpriced. Specials on recent evening were exorbitant . "My bad" for not asking, but assumed that the ribeye special would be in the range of the filet... More
