Have dined here annually for many years. Our last experience was even more unsatisfactory than last year. The reservation was honored 20 minutes late. Service whic followed was tardy in arriving, had to be summoned for water refills and the wine which had been ordered with the meal. Service when it arrived was abrupt. The restaurant was incredible noises accentuated... More

Every time I visit my family in Lexington, we always go to Malone's at least once during my visit. This restaurant is great for the whole family, even small children. The entire lunch and dinner menu is excellent, but especially the free refills on the Lexitonian Salad is always a popular favorite of ours! There are indeed Vegan and Gluten-Free... More

We had previously dined at this venue in 2015. It was quiet, atmosphere was "fine dining". We wanted to repeat this experience. It was very crowded, extremely noisy. Service was slow because they were busy. Drinks from the bar were mediocre. The food was delicious - just disappointed in the ambiance.

Absolute great place for fine dining. Always get a great meal and great service. This is a well run restaurant, and it starts with the Maitre D. Service is impeccable and Food is awesome and good value for what you get. Always stop in here during Keeneland, and whomever we bring with love's it as well.

Malone's walls of fame with Malone's logo autographed by celebrities (mostly UK Basketball players and coaches) is over the top. Inside dining is crowded and VERY LOUD. It is not the place to go for a nice, relaxing, pleasant, enjoyable meal. I am always hurrying my meal just to get done and to leave the noise. Outside seating is better... More

This restaurant was recommended by my sister (although she didn't specify a location). We chose this one based on proximity to our hotel. We made a reservation as it was a Friday night and we weren't sure of crowds. It was fairly busy but we were sat within 2 minutes. Service throughout the entire meal was great. They had "team...

This is a family go to place. We always get together here for late lunch or dinner. Steaks are very good, pork chops have never disappointed​. Lexington salad is never ending and hot bread is delicious. Salads and seafood is always a great combo. Service is impeccable and staff is always polite. We do enjoy all the locations but this...

We went on a recommendation to my wife by the make up lady in Macy's, she said it is a great place. Well all I can say is she was so right, we had the potato fondue for appetizer and it was good, then the house salad was delicious, then the porterhouse for two came and OMG what a steak,... More

The quality of Malone's over the years has varied, but on this occasion my friend and I thoroughly enjoyed our meal, as we both had the halibut special. The fish was perfectly cooked with lump crab meat, salsa verde, and whipped potatoes. The salsa was just enough to add flavor but the fish was excellent on its own. Other than... More

Service was excellent. Our waiter was very attentive, never had to ask for anything or wait on refills. Ordered medium rare filet, it was cooked more medium than rare and over seasoned. Not the best steak I've had.
