I'd hold off fixing it for now. Some rough shops spray on liquid and call it a leak. Wipe it clean and monitor the fluid level to make sure it is really leaking. Then you'll have time to shop around for best price.
Not sure which Lexus you have. A friend of mine has a '98 Avalon that had the same problem. $400 to replace the power steering at a local Toyota dealership. He was a bit pissed that the whole damn thing needed to be replaced just to fix a simple leak.
