Great place with good quality food at very reasonable prices. For lunch, we dined on quiche of the day and a salad. The waiter could not have been better. A favorite. We'll return!

Today is my wife's birthday and sometimes the festivities of the holiday season overwhelm my efforts to adequately celebrate the occasion with her. Not this year - thanks to our dinner last night at Bistro on Main. The Bistro is the best of several fine restaurants in Lexington and is an exceptional value. I love the atmosphere, the friendliness and... More

Our family stopped in here when we were all needing just a little something to tide us over for our next adventure. We ordered small things, and they were great. We weren't that hungry, but we finished every last bite! I'd definitely recommend this place, and I can't wait to go back when we're really hungry. The wait staff was... More

Drinks and dinner at the bar at the Bistro on Main is a lovely way to enjoy an evening in Lexington. The owners are ever present making sure the food is awesome and the service impeccable. And then there is Mortye, the best bartender in town.

It's small, it's menu selective but adequate, and the food just fine. Since the menu always has a few specials to go with the "standard" offerings, frequent diners (I am one) like to eat here. The seating is adequate (except for large groups) and the space usually not too noisy for good conversation. The service is excellent. I've never had... More

Great meal and attentive staff. Very busy but not too loud to enjoy a great meal with friends. Will return on next trip to Lexington. You may want to come after 8 PM.

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
