“Wonderful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2014

Went for lunch with a couple of friends and had a great experience. Loved the cute decor. The menu has plenty of options and our food was delicious. Chocolate cake for desert was especially good! Our server Ace was very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu/specials. Plan to return soon and will recommend to others!

“Quaint Decor”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2014

After reading reviews of this restaurant, both good and bad, decided to give it a try on a recent business trip to Lexington. The description sounded intriguing. The decor was quaint, a shabby chic style. You could sit on a sofa or at table. I dined at lunch. There were several customers, but not overly crowded. We were seated promptly and our server got our order in quickly. I had a quinoa pasta with smoked salmon and it was delicious! Based on my experience from this visit to Shakespeare, I would definitely return.

“What Are You Waiting For!?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2014

Fabulous, friendly service awaits you at this Downtown Lexington locale. The steaks are cooked exactly as you order them or they will redo it with a smile. Drinks and wines are reasonable; Dreaming Tree is a can't miss bottle of red wine for that juicy steak. Kuz and Renae are impeccable for "at your service". It is as fun an experience as you want to make it.

“What a cool place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2014

Just happened to stop in -- I'd read about this on TripAdvisor. To seat us they asked "table or couch?" ...so that tells you this place is different, and proud of it. We all had sandwiches (burgers and grilled chicken) - food was good atmosphere was really, really unique. I will go back and I'll send others here. Just a really nice different, place to eat.
