BLUE PLATE AWARD OF EXCELLENCE- LANE REPORT 2010 <br /><br />FOUR STARS- LEXINGTON HERALD LEADER 2009 <br />The otherwise bland stretch of Old Todd’s Road belies the elegance and sophistication of the restaurant’s cool interior, and of the food. School occupies a cozy, cheerful space with colorful wooden geometric patterned walls and minimalistic furniture. The ingredients range far and wide and straddle the familiar to foreign. Sushi transported on a conveyor system which can be selected at the patron’s convenience takes center stage. Executive Chef Masayuki Sakai creates authentic Japanese cuisine. The staff at School is friendly, knowledgeable and welcoming. They are able to answer any questions and point you in the right direction if you are new to Japanese cuisine. School also has a private karaoke room that can be reserved by the hour. While located in heart of the Bluegrass you will definitely feel you have been transported to a much larger city for the evening.

"We were a group of 6 dining together at School. Mys husband and I started with some hot sake flavored with ginger. It hit the spot on a very cold evening. Then we ordered the tofu appetizer, the chicken kabobs, and pork dumplings...all very good. Four of us ordered sushi, and 2 ordered dinners. Our sushi came out, looked pretty, tasted divine. The 2 dinners never showed. Our server must have forgotten to put in the order, but by the time we realized their dinners weren't coming out, we were done with our sushi. Those of us who ate enjoyed our meal, but the whole experience was diminished by the couple who went home hungry. Our server never returned to our table. A woman came over, apologized, and we left."
