Made 6:00 pm reservations. A friend and I were seated in the darker, more intimate section of the restaurant. We shared starters of puffy, golden, blue cheese beignets (barely a hint of cheese) and cold sliced eggs. My comarade had the battered soft shelled crab and I had the paella without the choirizo. We both thought our meal was delicious. Coming right at 6 before the crowd provided a quiet time to enjoy the appetizers and wine. Our waiter, with a George Hamilton tan, was charming and attentive.

We made a reservation and were told we couldn't sit in the front room because 2 hours later they were expecting a large group. This didn't start out well. I had the baked brie which was cold the time it got to the table. We had the rib eye which was fatty and cold. The cosmos were good, but i wouldn't go back.

Didn't know how to "title" a review, hence the reference to "CB". But I loved this place! In a funky (aka "in") part of downtown - with easy (on Sunday) street parking. Really good wine list.
Note to singles/solos - lots of "halfs" of recognizable vineyards, which is good. Food menu - clever and interesting. My choices - exceeded my expectations.
I'd go back when I'm back in Lexington. Recommend you try it!

We really enjoyed the food, with the slow roasted lamb being a standout. I really enjoyed the warm Brussels sprout salad with pine nuts, and family members loved the scallops. A definite place to return to the next time we are in town!
