One of Louisville's Best Restaurants

Ramsi's has a great menu. Many vegan and vegetarian options. Loved the samosas. Outside seating. Love the atmosphere.

Ramsi's was long one of my favorite three restaurants in Louisville, a place with tough competition. I have not been for two years due a bad food experience, but wanted to introduce my son to it and try it again. Sadly, another bad experience. On a good note, the medulla figs are just as excellent as always. Same excellent review... More

Had a delicious dinner here, a vegetarian Indian dish. Not exactly what I expected, but nicely blended flavors. Wanted to eat here repeatedly, just to try all the different dishes. Cocktails were creative. Very casual seating, definitely not fancy, but fun. Service was friendly and pleasant. Crowded with locals!

We met friends here and started with the Mezze Mont LaTroun. It was good and a large portion but we didn't get enough pita bread and when we asked for more our server seemed annoyed and told us it would be a while. I asked about drink recommendations and again she was annoyed. I ended up trying the Moroccan Rose... More

This is a lively, fun place - they offer an incredibly wide assortment of food, ranging from "comfort" food to Middle Eastern specialties. On a recent visit I had fish tacos, which came with rice, cole slaw and a range of condiments. My guest had the Old World salad which comes in several size portions. The large salad with chicken...

Never ones to settle for cookie cutter establishments, my wife and I struck gold with Ramsi's. Not only can you travel the globe for your gastric system, the wait staff and cooks are happy to modify items at your request. I have a severe gluten intolerance and they understand and take precautions very well. Plus, our waitress looked almost straight-up... More

A needed experience when craving different cuisine. Sometimes crowded but adds to the ambience. Haven't tried the bar, but sometimes wine

I was pretty underwhelmed by this place. We stopped here for lunch because it was part of the Urban Bourbon Trail. Now, I will say that the food I ordered tasted good and that's important. However, so much else was lacking that it really detracted from the experience. Food: They have a very large menu which may actually be a... More

We came here on Christmas Eve at 2:00. We had 9 people and they took reservations. I noticed they had outside seating and that would be a great place to sit in the warmer weather. Our party had Pescatarians, Vegans and Carnivores and all had multiple options on the menu. I ordered a Gorganzola Chicken dish that was served with... More
