Trip Advisor community,you did it again. You guided me to one of the best dinning experiences I have had in the city. Looking for something different for my wife's birthday, I stumbled across The Lexington Grill. All I can say is WOW. I have no idea how in the last 18 yrs in its existence I had never come across this excellent place. Another reviewer tagged the tine, " best place you never heard of" That is spot on.
Old house converted to a restaurant tucked away down a lazy residential street. Free Vallet. Small deck out side with a few tables. Upon opening the glass front door, you are greeted not just by the fabulous staff, but by the simple elegance of the restaurant.
Menu is arranged in a 5 course style. Portions are perfect and not overdone with the flavours being the star o f evverycourse. My wife and I started with the scallops. Two perfectly cooked 1" thick scallops with the most amazing mango salsa. i do not care for scallops usually, but i cleaned the plate. Main meals were Chilean Sea Bass and the rack of lamb. Spectacular!
Prices are are on the higher end, and very easy to cross over the $200 mark if you get a bottle of wine as we did. But we did eat from every section on the menu as well. We have spent the same or more at other restaurants for the two of us on special occasions and did not thing but cringe when signing the check. We didnt blink when out meal was over.
There is a class that Lexington Grill keeps with the ambiance in the dinning area and it is reinfornced wih how the waitstaff maintains your experience. Our waiter kept our glasses full but gave us the perfect amount of space to enjoy each others company without having those awkward interruptions. The owner came by and introduced him self at the end and thanked us for coming out. We were given a small tour of the rooms. Excellent bar hard wood floors with very nice dark wood walls.
Fantastic experience, and food was top top notch.
