Had a Saturday evening dinner with a party of 5 adults and a child at Le Deauville. Though the food is good, it is over-priced. It would be smart to avoid this restaurant. Seating is cramped. Service is extremely slow, even by European standards. The management slaps an automatic 20% gratuity on parties of 5 or more. That's 20% on food, drinks AND tax, a point that triggered a discussion with the manager. The manager, a shabbily dressed individual in an unbuttoned shirt with the tail out, made a correction but was entirely disagreeable about it. He claimed others with $3,000 tabs never complained, and he noted our party had been there since opening. With a 4-yr old child, we never expected a 3-hour dinner. Fortunately, the little girl was a jewel.

My husband and I were visiting Lexington, planning and upcoming meeting. We stumbled upon Le Deauville after we had had dinner but we fell in love with the atmosphere on a beautiful evening and went in for a cocktail. The bartender was excellent and we watched many dishes being served. We will be back in 5 weeks and will definitely be back to have dinner at Le Deauville.

Held a friend's birthday dinner there. The starting drinks - Manhattans- were real done. The food and bread were excellent. We will be going back for our anniversary dinner. We had an early dinner time of 6:30 but by 8 o'clock the seating area was full. The pace was leisurely and there was no rush to have you vacate your table. I only gave it 4 circles because the seating was a bit close or, if you prefer, initimate with your neighbors. In warmer weather, sidewalk tables are available. I would definitely take visitors to this restaurant.

Food and service was wonderful. I started off with a French Martini...very good! I had a Tiger Shrimp and Advocado Salad which I should have just stopped after eating that, but oh no, the mussels were too tempting and tasty! From there, my husband and I split a banana dessert. It was layers of bananas, banana mousse, and flaky pastry goodness!! If you like French and you are in Lexington, KY, you must try Le Deauville!
