It was our last chance to dine out before yet another shot down! We had a great evening, the food was very good and the service impeccable.

The food and service was incredible, we've already been raving about it to our friends and family. Our only complaint was the bar height chairs, they were incredibly uncomfortable to the point where we would've stayed longer, but our backs were too sore. it was a busy Friday night so changing tables wasn't really an option as we were only two people who would have had to take up a four seat table. Aside from that it was excellent, we will be back, we just know now to request a different style of table.

Fork and knife chicken was amazing once again. And the cauliflower is a must. We’ll go again for sure!

My wife found this place through an online advertisement. Initially reserved for 4 and added a 5th at the last minute via an email request. Staff responded quickly making the adjustment. While I didn't order the Brisket I did sample a piece - WOW! On our next visit it's da BRISKET!!!

Excellent service; very friendly and prompt. Food was very tasty and well cooked. Cozy atmosphere, but music was too loud to comfortably carry on a conversation. My throat was sore by the time my party left from trying to project my voice over the music.

Consistently great food. Props to the staff at Lexington for providing great service, amazing food, all in a warm and inviting environment. I finally tried the Meat Platter, and it was great. Too much for me, but the take home portion will make a nice lunch or two.

My favorite restaurant in Ottawa by far! Every food item I’ve had has been delicious but the brisket and fork and knife chicken are my go-tos.

We had the Fried Brie to start, mains were Fork & Knife Chicken and the BBQ Platter
Fried Brie: Would 100% recommend as a starter for two people. A group of 4 would need 2 orders.
Fork & Knife Chicken: Dynamite, best friend chicken I have had in years. Ordered the Coleslaw on the side and the Buttermilk Biscuit was fantastic.
BBQ Platter with House Ribs and Beef Brisket: Brisket was cooked but didn't enjoy the ribs. Tough and too hard to eat. The Smoked Bacon Potato Salad is definite recommend but should have passed on the Mac & Cheese and ordered something else.
We had great service and thought the restaurant had a good vibe and décor.
An espresso machine would be a great addition.

All members of our party reported the mains were rather disappointing. Mac and cheese very fake tasting. Fried chicken not flavourful at all. Coleslaw was not good. The apps, biscuit and cornbread were tasty, but not much else was. Service was great however!

It was our first time to dine there. We found the food good, but it was very dark and hard to see what we were eating, even with a couple of votive candles.
