Amazing Menu Really Delivers!

I was skeptical of a menu that promises a Thai paella, pesto over crab cakes and grouper, chicken marsala,, and an appetizer sampler of hummus, falafel, pita, and baba ghanoush. They really pulled it off. The paella portion with shrimp and chicken was plentiful and delicious. The fish dish was... read more

The food was absolutely amazing, the service was very friendly. The dessert was out of this world, and it's all made there at the restaurant. Would definitely recommend it and will definitely be trying it again!

I am not a fan of this restaurant but friends of mine are. It does not matter what I have ordered it all seems mediocre. I really can not recommend anything.

We stopped in around lunchtime to get a few drinks at the bar. As we sat there, our eyes searched for a bartender. Surely one was working because a few others were already seated at the bar and had been drinking. Finally, a kid who didn't appear to be old enough to be behind or even at a bar appeared.... More

We have been eating here for 20 years. It's our go to spot when we're in town. My husbands favorite dish is the Nuevo Havana. I like that they have their own organic garden. Good beers on tap.

Great food, service, beer and wine selection. The atmosphere is cool and the food was eclectic and delicious. I had what the waitress recommended and it was terrific. I can't wait to go back!

NO way to describe this place except to say YUMMY! Great decor, great service, great entertainment but most important, great food!!! I almost always start with the Honey drizzled brie. You can't go wrong with the Jamaican Chicken sandwich or Greek Salad.... i could go on and on. You can't just go once. There is so much to choose from...... More

Love this place. They have a large menu but don't let it overwhelm - there really is something for everyone. Meat, vegan, vegetarian, pasta - you name it. ALL of it is delicious. Add the fact the deco is fun, great outside area and on bardstown road with shopping and bars nearby you have a trifecta (had to go there)

We ate here on a Friday night without a reservation because we'd just gotten in town for a flight Saturday. We were seated immediately, even though they were busy. Our waiter did a good job of getting to us and kept it up. The hummus was amazing! Our entrees, crab cakes and chicken/shrimp curry were both very good. I was... More

Ramsis should not be missed if you go to Bardstown. They offer outdoor or indoor dining. The ambiance is anything but chain restaurant, a curious mix of old and new. They have been at the same location for 25 years, and have seen the neighborhood change dramatically into the vibrant destination it is today. There are many choices for eating... More
