    Excellent food, but the service was not up to standards for a restaurant with this price point. Our server Kayla took 1/2 hour to take our food order after the original drink order and then only came over after I flagged her down. By the time our $60/each steaks arrived, we still did not have steak knives and I again had to flag her down to get them. Then she proceeded to have a bad attitude toward us as if we'd done something wrong to expect steak knives. The steak was awesome, but I'll be dining someplace else that has waitstaff that can deliver when I'm spending that kind of money next time.

    It’s not as good as it should be. We were there for dinner and planned on having steak, as it’s a steakhouse. They don’t have prime rib. They did not have any baked potatoes ready. Alternative sides were just OK at best. My ribeye was good, cooked perfectly medium well, but it was way over peppered. My wife’s filet mignon was a little tough and should have been melt-in-your-mouth instead. For $170 for two, I expected it to be better. Will go elsewhere next time.

    As always, the service was impeccable. The food, for the most part, was excellent . The only thing that was not 5-star worthy was the Maple Bacon Chicken. It was very dry. The flavor was great, there was just no moisture in the meat. Otherwise, everything was superb!

    The food was great, the ambiance was very loud and more of a family venue with lots of kids, not what we were expecting. We were seated next to a child's birthday party; this definitely had a negative impact on our experience.

    We look forward to dining at Malomes when we visit Lexington. The food never dissapoints. The salad is delicious, steaks were good although they did not seem like prime cuts. Fried shrimp were cooked perectly, shrimp pasta was good. Creamed spinach was soupy and did not have much spinach in it. The baked potato was huge and delicious. Our server did not deliver the service that we have come to expect. He was absent and had a smart aleck attitude. Thankfully the assistant, Lily delivered amazing service. We will chalk it up to Covid and try again next time.

    Malones never disappoints! Not only is the service top notch, it’s done quickly. The Lexingtonian salad is delicious, and the filet was so juicy and tender. You could have cut the steak with a butter knife! A must do on our Lexington stop

    The hostess at the front desk really must not like her job. She was frowning, wouldn't listen to my request for a booth in a less noisy area, and completely ignored the fact that I told her I had a hearing problem. She seated me where I didn't want to sit because I couldn't hear and said to me "hope you enjoy your lunch." She had a few words she needed to say and that's all she was going to say. Listening to a request was not on her radar. Maybe she was trained that way. I don't know. I decoded tp meet my friend at the door and go elsewhere. Another hostess asked what was happening and the first young lady shrugged her shoulders like she had no idea -- and, actually, she probably had no idea about what she was doing. I was then shown to a table that was much quieter. I shouldn't have had to have such a hassle. I was a customer. I usually to to Palomar which is where I'll go next time.

    We had reservations to celebrate my wife’s birthday. I even put that on the online reservation . It was not acknowledged by anyone. We even hinted to a birthday celebration after the meal. The waiter just brought the check. When we asked about wanting to have dessert, the waiter said okay…then got…well…sarcastic with us. He asked how many desserts we wanted. He said “8, 10, 12 how many do you want”? I felt that was completely uncalled for. It was a very snarky tone. Though he brought the 2 desserts we ordered, we were surprised that he charged us for both. We’ve dined at Malone’s for close to 20 years and look forward to the small treat of a complimentary dessert on special occasions. We really felt like the effort we went to for this family celebration was disregarded and thrown in our face. It was embarrassing and hurtful.

    In town for dressage finals and my husband and I are here on our first night. Husband loved his burger and I had fried shrimp. Food was fine, cocktail selection was good. Our waiter was outstanding. Super friendly, took time to go over everything with us in great detail. Went above and beyond to take care of us after hearing we were from FL and had been delayed getting to KY due to tropical storm Nicole. Can’t remember his name but he was amazing! Would go back and highly recommend
