Not too shabby of a place

Fiance and I went here for a later dinner. Appreciated the extensive menu with many different selections. Our service was great however our order was slightly mixed up. Cozy atmosphere and over all a good experience. Will go again but wouldn't consider this place as a "must go" restaurant.

I've eaten several good meals here, but the last visit was terrible. The sautéed vegetables - snow peas, carrots, etc. - that accompanied my salmon didn't look very fresh, but I ate them. Until a small bug walked out from the bottom of the serving. I thought at first it might have been a fruit fly, but it wouldn't fly.... More

Go for the lunch hour, fresher food, still a full menu, and less crowded. They get busy during dinner time, and sometimes the food suffers. But I first went here in '90... had the Jamaican Jerk Chicken, left town for near on 20 years wanting another. Now that I'm back in town? It's still on the menu! Outdoor patio seating... More

The service was less friendly than we're used to (but it became much friendlier when the bill was presented). The food was interesting and unusual. The bar featured a long list of bourbons. I enjoyed a flight of bourbon, to taste three that were unfamiliar. It's a tad pricey, but pretty good value.

I went after working a show in louisville,ky. I was by myself. I had made reservations. My waitress had a attitude from the get go. I ordered tuna and a small Greek salad. The salad was wonderful. The tuna was ok. The waitress was just awful. She never checked on me and was not a bit nice. I would not... More

We visited Louisville 2 years ago and loved this place so much we HAD to return. If you cannot find something to eat on this diverse menu, I would be shocked. We started with one of their specialty drinks - Hot Ginger Ale - nice NA drink on a cold day! I had their version of a Cuban Sandwich with... More

Ramsi's offers indoor and outdoor seating. It is a very eclectic setting decorated with articles gathered from around the world. The menu is the most varied I have ever seen with a wide variety of selections...(including vegan)!
