We ate here because we were staying in adjoining hotel but is was just average and the staff were too busy chattering among themselves. No real atmosphere but the food was fine

The food was overpriced because of its location. But it was good in quality and quantity. The service was great and I thoroughly enjoyed going there as I was staying in Lexington itself.
