Great place. Boston quality in the burbs!

Lexx is a great spot. It is the go to spot in our office for business lunches, and dinners. Its fantastic to have a restaurant of this quality and value nearby that doesn't require us to go into Boston.

I have been told by a few people to give this restaurant a try. I must say that it was the service that I thought needed rectifying. First of all, if you have a wine tasting going on and your bar staff are the people pouring the wine for the tasting they should not be the only ones waiting on... More

Hello, I want to sincerely thank you for the honest and critical feedback. Without our guests feedback we would never have the opportunity to improve and certainly would not have been able to continuously improve over the past 10 years. Tuesday was a challenging evening, not so much because there was a wine dinner but we were indeed short staffed.... More

Excellent cocktails, better than many I've had in Boston. I've always had excellent experiences with the staff. The food is delicious. The appetizers are superb, the soup of the day is a good bet, some of my salads have been downright inspired (I'm looking at you Pumpkin Seed Pesto.) Proud to be a regular. The restaurant describes itself as Comfortable... More

We had a reservation and after waiting at the bar for thirty minutes past it, went back to the wait station and suggested we were just checking on the status. The hostess was embarrassed and apologetic. When we sat down, a waiter brought over a complimentary appetizer that was delicious and apologized profusely for the delay. Food was terrific. Service...

Lexx used to be one of our go to places, a local place we could take guests to. I am vegan and I found things to eat there. Then came an string of very bad experiences. Food served dangerously scalding hot. Microwaved? I scalded my mouth. Then there was a terrible vegan meal. My husband still likes it, but I... More

Dear BrahmitriYoga, I am sorry for your experience, although we do not market ourselves as a vegan restaurant, we do have some vegan options. It is difficult for me to rectify a situation that happened so many months ago, but I do value your feedback . The Moroccan stew is on of our most popular dishes for vegans, it is... More

My wife and I had high expectations when we had dinner at Lexx in suburban Lexington, Massachusetts on a recent weekend. Some previous reviewers had compared it to downtown Boston eateries but we didn't find it so. Our food preparation had several shortcomings. Our meat was overcooked and tough in one case and too fatty in another. Our server did... More

There are not so many choices in Lexington. Lexx is quite large and has an extensive menu which provides for good choice. Staff were friendly and helpful. I had the meditteranean salad with chicken. Both the salad and chicken were ok if unexciting. The hummus was pretty decent. Fine for lunch but pretty run of the mill.

Visited last Saturday to meet a friend for lunch. This place is a great find!! Service was great, not rushed, food was delicious.

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
