Lexington Social House
Posted by Natalia Oleni on 08/15/2011
Lexington is quite impressive. Being a new restaurant, the service and food was on point. The portions are large, so I suggest sharing. The ambience was very hip....Jennifer Love Hewitt was sitting across from me in the outdoor garden!! So cool!! Place was down to earth and relaxing. Thinking of doing my birthday here.... Only gripe is that the patio chairs are a bit uncomfortable if you are wearing a dress. So ask for the booth seating.

I like this place ALOT. Food: Great, but also classic - no weird foams and marrows. Like, gourmet comfort food. The fried chicken is stupid good. I was sad to see them take the English pea soup off the menu (seriously one of the best things I've ever eaten) but just as happy with the corn soup, if not more maybe... Atmosphere: Surprisingly comfortable despite the fact that it's smack in the middle of Hollywood. I eat on the patio - it feels like a mix of NY and Miami, at dusk. Magical! Oh and I know no one eats dessert in this town, but please don't leave without trying the monkey bread...

Lexington Social House is awesome! I went with a few business associates for dinner and had a great experience. I tried the 'Lexington' cocktail and it was fantastic (and I'm not a bourbon or whiskey drinker). Service was impeccable and the food was fantastic. we learned from our server that their chef was under Wolfgang Puck and it definitely showed... flavors were mouth watering (we had the crab salad, beet & goat cheese salad and for mains I had the fried chicken that was some of the best ever!) The Monkey Bread dessert was over the top, never had something SO good. I highly, highly recommend Lexington for dinner!

After leaving Lexington Social House I'm convinced they call it "SOCIAL HOUSE" due to the fact ALL of their employees are socializing with each other instead of working. It's unfortunate we don't have a time machine to go back and decide on another place to eat! Things to know before entering Hollywood's latest scam: 1. POOR SERVICE. We rarely complain about service due to the nature of restaurants, but in this case we can genuinely say it has everything to do with their training and not their personalities. Things went wrong when she attempted to take my order from behind my head instead of facing me and asking what I'd like. Everything from how she handled dishware to taking orders was completely wrong. 2. FOOD WAS NOT GOOD. We can often overlook service when the food is good. This just wasn't the case. The bread was soggy when it came out making it more of a bread pudding. The pork belly appetizer was literally so tough you couldn't even cut through it to eat. I literally just put it all on the fork and ate it off the main piece. The Chicken was undercooked with pink where there should be none at all! Needless to say we didn't eat all of the chicken. 3. PORTIONS WERE SMALL. It was as if they were trying to feed a 5 year old and charge them 85 dollars per person for it. Again, when the food is amazing it doesn't matter. I've seen better chicken and pork out of banquet TV dinners. 4. LACK OF LEADERSHIP. We spoke to the manager and told them how awful the service was. We were told it would be taken care of immediately. 45 minutes later things were unchanged and it was as if the management sincerely didn't care that their restaurant was upsetting everyone at the table. 5. FINAL BILL. For one sugar cube sized piece of overcooked pork belly, two chicken thighs and a drum stick, and a small cookie sized portion of cheese cake our bill was $85 dollars. THIS WAS BEFORE any drinks. Two drinks at the bar later was another $40 dollars. Save yourself the trouble and go to an expensive restaurant that actually has quality food and service. Our suggestion is Ruth Chris, Mastro's, Cut, or any number of OTHER fine dining restaurants.
