Visited last Saturday to meet a friend for lunch. This place is a great find!! Service was great, not rushed, food was delicious. I had the pork belly appetizer; never had it before, part of it seemed very mushy and fatty but I have nothing to compare it to so I'll go with very good! It was served over a... More

Thought I checked this place out since the center of Lexington is scarce of bars. It is one of the few restaurants on Mass Ave.that has a bar. Place is full. The host and hostess were friendly and attentive. We got 2 seats at the bar within 5 minutes. Thought was nice...quick. Well...our drinks took forever. Took us 10-15 minutes... More

Dear Love2winedine, I am aware the restaurant was extremely busy that evening and the kitchen was busier than normal. Albeit that does not excuse how the Bartender handled the situation. I do expect us to make some mistakes, but it is how we handle the mistakes that is important. You were not given the proper attention nor care that our... More

The Lexx is a busy centrally located restaurant in Lexington center. It's a place diners like to return to as the food is delicious, the staff friendly and efficient and the ambience is welcoming. If anyone in your party has difficulty hearing it's a pretty noisy place. However the back dining room away from the busy bar scene is the... More

This restaurant is our go to in Lexington, where we live. We've been eating there since it opened years ago, and we almost always see someone we know. Service is consistently good, and the food is always excellent. The bar is also nice, although we usually eat in the dining room. You can count on a great dining experience here.

I happened upon this place while traveling on business. Sat at the bar for dinner. Service was a bit distant and disengaged but the place was full of "regulars" so I got the feeling that this was a "repeat business" kinda place Sure enough, everyone knew everyone....so clearly I was onto something. I had a great glass of sauvignon blanc... More

We stopped in for a quick meal at Lexx and we're glad we did. We each ordered raviolis, my husband had the prosciutto with fig and blue cheese and I had the butternut with brie. Both were so very good! The service was friendly and fast. We would eat here again!

Food was pretty good. Enjoyed burger and falafel wrap we got for lunch. Crab and pepper appetizer was way too spicy, good crab got lost due to scorching. We sat outside and the server forgot about us a few times (drinks were hardly ever refilled) and we waited quite a bit of time for food. I think she was new... More

We ate at Lexx for the first time tonight and absolutely loved it. We received a warm greeting from the chef and hostess upon entering, and found the waitress to be pleasant, knowledgeable, and efficient. The rockfish was perfectly cooked, and perfectly good, but the Pork Osso Bucco was simply extraordinary. The meat is so tender that it practically melts... More

Enjoyed a relaxing lunch. The food was delicious and the service was good. We weren't in a hurry and the staff didn't rush us.
