“It's what you order that makes it here...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2013

The Lexington Social was recommended by the innkeeper of a guesthouse where we were staying a couple of blocks away. We found it to be really great. However, that said, we had lots of suggestions from the server in getting just the right blend of the tapas we ordered. Some sounded quite unusual, but we were happy to take his word for it. We just ordered one item at a time and savored it before moving on to the next choice. It was really great. Besides the food, it was a great place to just sit and have a drink. We were there early when it was easy to get a table. By the time we left, it was quite busy. And on the other nights as we walked past it leaving the subway, it was always busy. Depending on what you order, it can be pricey or not. As with all tapas restaurants, it is up to you.

“A Class Act”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2013 via mobile

Love the place, warm, friendly and inviting. Sam the bartender is your man. Try and guess which country he is from. We go regularly, close to subway stop of 103.

“Relaxed atmosphere, great drinks”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2013

Loved the ambiance and the music. Think dim lighting, thick wooden tables, and a guitar riffing in the background. The space is small, we had a group of probably 8 people, and we were able to fit, but it was difficult to get the table. And there isn't much standing room or space at the bar, so it is really table or nothing. The drink were great - I really liked their ginger something, worth the try if you like ginger - and reasonably priced.
