The food here is always fresh and the variety quite wide. Ambiance is relaxed but classy. A good buy on anything you choose and a great experience all around.

After reading all the great reviews, we went here for lunch the day we arrived in Lexington, which was a Thursday. We were not disappointed. The food, service and atmosphere were all top rate. I rarely eat at a restaurant twice on the same trip, but we liked it so much we were going to return on Sunday. Unfortunately, it... More

An over night stay through town took us to this restaurant and we were pleasantly surprised. With no reservations our friendly hosts greeted us and quickly seated us. The food was amazing. We shared the vegetable ravioli as an appetizer it was very good. I had the flounder special with risotto. The fish was delicious the risotto bland. The wine... More

The food here was amazing! My wife and I spent our first anniversary here for dinner. We both hade the crab cake meal and it was the best I've ever had! The staff was very friendly. I would also recommend the bistro salad!

We were visiting VMI and stopped for lunch at the nearby village. The hostess was pleasant as was the waitress. I had a Oyster Poorboy sandwich which was delicious! My husband had the Chicken Caesar wrap which he enjoyed. The atmosphere was relaxing with pleasant background music. I would return to the Bistro On Main!

A charming restaurant in downtown Lexington. The staff are friendly, knowledgeable and attentive without being effusive. My reservation has again handled on-time ...even with a change here and there (ie lost one of 6) they are very accommodating. What we enjoy most, is the food...always terrific, seasonal options and a very nice selection of well executed menu staples of all... More

Who would have thought that a small town hundreds of miles from the coast or New Orleans could make a fabulous oyster po'boy, but they did. It wasn't a classic, in fact it wasn't even served on a hoagie roll, but it was great. The fried oysters were an incredible combination of crispy and juicy. The sauce was an amazing... More

Driving from Bristol to Charlottesville, I was hoping Lexington had a nice restaurant for my lunch. Sure enough on Main Street (Rt. 11 North) I spotted a little bistro. Parked across the street and went in. They treated me expertly like I wasn't alone wearing my wanna-be overalls. I had one of their special: blackened salmon on a bun with... More
