    We love Malones and eat there regularly. We always have a fantastic experience. However, yesterday, we waited nearly 40 minutes for our food. There were a number of open tables and the dining room did not seem too busy. We will go back, but this was so surprising.

    Love the food. Servers are always very kind. Our table was extremely close to the ones next to us. Made a note in the online reservation and told hostess at check-in, but the birthday being celebrated was not mentioned by staff.

    Not sure who the manager was last night but was amazing. Had a suit on and beard. He got us checked in early after I told him just wanted to see if it was possible. Got us a free desert. He was awesome. Would love to be able to make sure he gets recognized for that

    The interior at the Palamar location has been completely redesigned with expertise and the atmosphere is second to no other restaurant in Lexington. The food and service have always been 5 STAR but our recent dining experience was above the clouds OUTSTANDING!!! I highly recommend Malones to everyone who wants the best food and service at an affordable price. My hats are off to the owners and management.

    We love Malone and have generally had very good experiences. My only complaint with our dinner is my wife's steak was overcooked. Mine was slightly overcooked as well but not as badly as my wife's. Her steak was replaced with a correctly cooked steak by temperature she requested. That was the first time we had to send a steak back for being overcooked as they typically are spot on, temperature wise. But this has not ruined our love of Malone's and will be back.

    We had a less than superb experience at Malones following the Breeders cup. One steak was served medium well instead of medium rare. The other 3 in our group had completed their meals before the 4th guest received their new steak. We had to frequently ask for refills of water and bread as our assistant did not check in. Definitely not a fine dining experience.
