We were in May 3'rd with my wife and 4 kids to celebrate her 50’th birthday. The total experience was very bad. The server was rude, really seemed very tired and not interested in making our meal anything special.. There was constant confusion about who was taking our drink orders and who was taking our appetizer orders, which seemed to... More

Stayed through Monday after the Derby. Sunday Louisville was like a ghost town and I was in the mood for solid food after 2 days of overindulgence. Eddie's was close to hotel, nice walk. Turns out Sunday was 1/2 price bottle night. Leo the Asst GM was a treat, spent time talking wine, he offered up a few tastings of... More

Very nicely appointed steakhouse with great wine list and food that is made better by the staff. A great place to dine in downtown Louisville

We came here for our last evening meal before leaving. Our only problem is that we did not eat here sooner. We had an excellent meal and Grade A service. We had been enjoying the downtown that entire day and we were not too hungry, but they were more than willing to allow us to share an entree with my... More

We walked down Fourth Street after the end of a day at our conference and decided to stop in for a glass of wine and a bite to eat. What a great idea! The bar faces the street so great people watching from the table, and we were blessed with an unusually good server, Abby. They had just started using... More

Food was good but not to impressed with our waiter. The bell staff was much more impressive than the waiter we had. Quite arrogant and we felt like we were second class citizens. For an upscale restaurant you would have thought that there would have been a manager touring the dinning area making sure the experience was worth paying for.

Very disappointed overall. Had higher expectations. Place looks OK, though somewhat mundane and very noisy. Greeting and service were average at best. Our server was off in his attitude and attentiveness. Food was lackluster. Some specifics: I had reserved a table online, adding a comment that we were celebrating 2 birthdays. No one acknowledged it all nigh long. I tried... More

Our experience for dinner with friends was less than enjoyable for a Friday night in March in Louisville ,KY.. The saving grace was the good friends that were with us.
