Glad we tried it

My wife and I dined here recently as part of "502 Restaurant Week". Winston's had long been on my list of places I wanted to try and we just never made it for some reason. We enjoyed our meal. I had the "Not Brown". I have to admit that the individual components were all very good, but the... read more

The restaurant is dimly lit with some natural light from windows streaming in, which makes the setting romantic, elegant and inviting. It is directly across from The Bakery (so that's worth a quick trip across the intersection!) and there is plenty of parking. We went for lunch and had awesome brunch options (which is helpful since I'm a vegetarian and... More

First of all I have been around Louisville, I mean all around Louisville and I have eaten all around Louisville. But, I had never head of WINSTON'S. The staff was very attentive the dinning room made you feel welcome. For me the main attraction was the steak, what can I say, I love a great steak. From the first most... More

I was with a group of eleven for lunch. The restaurant is open for lunch only 11:00 to 2:00 pm Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, so we arrived at 11:30 am. Service was excellent, the menu is exciting and varied, and the food hot and excellent. My only quibble would be that my seafood frittata was a little over cooked for... More

Winston's Restaurant is part of Sullivan University's Food Service School. Both the kitchen and service staff are students under very close supervision. The food is great and the service is outstanding. It is not a cheap eat, but is well worth the price. The "Not Brown" is one of their best items!All the appetizers are very interesting and it makes... More

Our server recommended the Not Brown and it was amazing. Very rich and every bite delicious. Cannot wait to come back from brunch ! Service was impeccable...very professional. Server really knew the menu, ingredients, preparations, etc. Very friendly. It is a little tough to find but once you do you will not forget it.

Our daughter was visiting so we wanted to go to a nice place for dinner. My wife and I had been to Winston's several years ago and the food and service was outstanding so we had no concerns about this being a great experience. We were very wrong. The food was only OK and the service was disorganized and uncertain.... More

I ordered grilled chicken sandwich, but the food was cold, and untasty (may be stale or something). It was the worst grilled chicken I have ever had.

We have been to dinner here countless times but today did the Sunday brunch. Absolutely great, I got the apples on french toast, my wife some eggy thing. The bloody mary bar was too much fun. The service is something to behold, as soon as you hit the door until you've tried the chocolate/orange cake, wow, how long can they... More

Went for lunch to check out the culinary skills of students. The restaurant is a fine dining experience handled by students. They did a great job of making us feel welcomed, helping us to select our entrée and serving us. I had the Not Brown (seafood) and it was great along with a glass of wine; husband had a Salad...
