We visited the Malone's at Palomar in Lexington, Ky for my 50th birthday celebration. We did make a reservation, but for a Sunday night, it really wasn't needed. We were greeted warmly by the host, and had a great server Eric S. He was pleasant and proficient in taking our order. I ordered the prime NY strip at 12oz with... More

The service was great. The prices were decent for a steak house. The bottomless salad was good but had way too much salad dressing for my taste. If you are not big on salad dressing ask for half the amount. The decor was just OK a bunch of placks of "famous " people who ate their.

Had a group of 5 for dinner celebrating a U of K graduation. Was very crowded for an early (6 PM) Thursday dinner. Can be noisy as a result..Ordered some very fresh sushi for an appetizer. If you are a steak eater, this is the place for you! Not cheap but w/a wide variety of cuts, sizes sauces and flavorings.... More

Everything looked like a really upscale establishment. Server was really fantastic. I ordered a ribeye, medium rare, expecting a mouth watering treat. I got a strip instead. Server inquired in the kitchen who made the excuse that it was end cut next to the strip. The ribeye portion of that cut was smaller than my pinkie. At the price, I... More

I recently took both my wife and mother to Malone's on the Friday before Mother's Day. We arrived early at 5pm because reservations were not available until late, my fault not theirs. The place was relatively empty but definitely filling up by the time left. The service was good as was the food. Only one word of caution, my mother... More

Loved it here! Called in for lunch on a Sunday & it was super busy. Great service though!! Delicious hot crusty bread, then fresh seafood appetizers - Oysters and King Crab cocktail. Followed by a delicious shrimp & garlic lemon pasta entree! Very ample portions! Nice hot bread to start with garlic butter and a great Stag's Leap Chardonnay. Service... More

I made reservations for my group of 20 from the University of Wisconsin Colleges based on an amazing review and recommendation from one of Lexington's premier tour guides. We had a group at the Kentucky Derby this weekend and were excited about dining at Malone's after the race. (our hotel was in Lexington) Because of traffic, a shuttle mishap, and... More

Busy place; we suggest making a reservation. Our server professional and very attentive! The best old fashion. Warm bread and herb butter. Bottomless Lexingtonian salad tasty and fresh. Teriyaki pork chops juicy, tender and flavorful. Coach Cal rosemary lemon pan seared chicken over pasta was delicious and large serving. We would return if visitng again.

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
