Reviewed March 4, 2014

The food was graet and only outdone by the supurb service. Attenative to detail and our wishes. We will return, and recommend this restaurant!

“Great food, great service”
Reviewed January 27, 2014 via mobile

We had a great lunch here with friends, everything was superb! I had the Chicago sushi roll (8 pieces for $7.95, I think), my husband had the 8 oz sirloin which came with a potato and delicious salad for about $20. A filet is around $30 and they have salads that look good for $15. Worth the trip!

“Steakhouse Kobe Burger.”
Reviewed January 1, 2014 via mobile

I recently dined here with my family and enjoyed the steakhouse kobe burger and a side of mac and cheese. While it wasn't the best gourmet burger that I've had, it is certainly a good contender. The mac and cheese was very good and creamy with large shells. The service was on par with what you'd expect in a fine dining restaurant.

“Took forever!”
Reviewed December 28, 2013 via mobile

Really nice atmosphere but food and service was not a fit for the atmosphere.
Our waiter seemed neurotic and was overly anxious, he told us the 'shpeel' twice as he didn't remember telling us! Soup, Special and what they didn't have! There were 4 tables in the restaurant!
Spinach and Artichoke Dip was bland and had way too much mozzarella on top that just cooled into a bit glop in the tiny bowl! It took 20 minutes to come out.
We ordered a Sushi Roll and Lexingtonian Salad. 25 minutes for a poor Roll with too much gloop squeezed all over it that it drowned the Roll. The Salad was bland and tasteless as the lettuce was wet and the dressing was watered down. The Manager asked how it was and he took it off the bill which was appropriate! Thank you.
I feel this place is running on its past reputation and was mediocre at best!
The best person was the 'Server's Assistant', she was lovely! (Little blond girl). Get her on the floor and the waiter off it!

Malone's steaks and salmon are excellent! The service is absolutely outstanding!!! I doubt you would be disappointed with any item on the menu. My only complaint would be booth seating and acoustics. When making a reservation, I recommend asking for a table...that's just a personal preference for me. It could be a little quieter but certainly you can have conversation without competition from the next table. Great place, great food, great service!
