Food was great. Employees were great. Place looked attractive. Didn’t like the wobbly table. I put my hands on the table, and my wife’s fork shot up and stuck in the ceiling!!! Just a little hyperbole. Also, the dress code was overstated. Mostly ripped jeans, t-shirts and flip flops. It was a special occasion for me, and I don’t mind being overdressed in a button down shirt and slacks. But if you’re planning a special night out, just be aware that it barely met business casual standards. Will I go back? Yes. A hundred times. Food, great. Atmosphere? Meh.

We love going to Le Moo for special occasions and recently went for our daughters 16th birthday. They never disappoint. This was the first time none of us ordered steak (which is always perfect), and we were still happy with everything we ordered. The service was great - Steve took fabulous care of us.

Excellent dinner. The old feel of the distillery was great. Felt like fine dining in a relaxed atmosphere. Food and drinks were fantastic. The brie is an excellent choice for an appetizer. I had the ribs, while others at my table had the tofu, the spicy pasta and the burger. Everyone was very satisfied. The waiter was attentive and friendly. We will be back.

First off, the service was impeccable. Ricky was unbelievably knowledgeable and accommodating when it came to working with my food allergies. And when I say food allergies I don’t mean like, I don’t like that so I’m allergic. I mean like I’m anaphylactically allergic to egg white and soy and Ricky paid very close attention to this. Now as far as the food…always seasoned to perfection and executed extremely well. Been that way for years. Thanks to Ricky and Cole and his extremely accommodating staff, we will more than likely make this a twice a month visit. A must dine for any Lexington foodie!

Our favorite Lexington sushi restaurant closed, but this one is pretty special. Our waiter, Adam, was very helpful -- he got me to try a flight of Japanese whiskeys, which were surprisingly good. First time my wife and I have had goma-ae with broccoli. Good! The sushi was very good, and loved that their menu clearly separates cooked from raw fish, which is nice. We'll be back!

We had a lovely date night after a friend gave me a gift card for my birthday. We thought the patio was laidback and casual, yet the food and service were excellent. The singer/guitarist they had playing was great and the volume was perfect for still having intimate conversations without having to yell across the table! We will be back to try more items on the menu!

The Bristol before the show at the Kentucky Art Center is our favorite thing to do! Their staff are just the best in the city…so pleasant and personable…they make you feel special and are so accommodating! All their appetizers and entrees are delicious as well as plenty of wine and drink selections! A visit there before the show just makes the whole evening shine!
