We had high hopes based on other reviews. The staff was very accommodating, squeezing us in on relatively short notice on a Saturday night. The menu is pretty straightforward, service good and the prices reasonable. The execution, however, fell short. Both meals for my wife and I (gilled salmon and chicken scallopine with pasta) were served lukewarm, barely above room... More

We were looking for a nice lunch off the interstate and checked TripAdvisor finding this gem. What a great lunch including dessert! Nice presentation, good value, and tasty food. I'd go back in a heartbeat. Give them a try.

Being a late Saturday afternoon I called for a reservation and that had very early or 8:30. We chose 8:30 and had a wonderful meal with good... More

We have been dining at the Bistro on Main for a few years on each visit to Lexington. It has become our favorite in the area. Consistently we have meals that are not just good, but exquisitely prepared, flavorful and abundant in choices. The vegetables seem as if they are freshly picked, the fish, chicken and pasta dishes amaze me... More

We stopped in just for a drink at the bar and an appetizer. Which was great. We didn't eat dinner here but seemed quite popular - especially lots of carryout being ordered which I think is always a good sign. Would definitely go back and try to have dinner here.

We pass through Lexington VA about twice a year. Since we discovered the Bistro on Main soon after it opened in 2003, we have always dined there at least once per visit. We eat at the bar; we enjoy to chat with the excellent bartender, Morty (sp?) We usually get a few moments, too, with the owner, Jackie, to chat... More
