Yummy meal with very attentive service!

Great meal with adult family - delicious spicy calamari and pork belly to share for apps and wonderfully seasoned chicken, salmon, and filet for our entrees. Good value. Parking lot next to restaurant is small.

This is how you run a restaurant. Great service and even better food. We went after Derby and all six of us had fantastic meals. The filet mignon was cooked perfectly and melted in my mouth. The sides were delicious and everyone cleaned their plates. Can't wait to go back next time in Louisville.

I highly recommend this restaurant if you're looking for a delicious meal. There were 12 people in my group and everybody was very satisfied with their meal. The porkchops were extremely tender and juicy.

We always enjoy the food here, and it's a place we come back to regularly. I like the seasonal menus and the special events they offer. The last one I went to was a Four Roses event which they hosted upstairs from the restaurant in a presumably new space they have (which can be rented for parties and events too,... More

Still one of the best bourbon collections, and some of the best pairings with food. The staff is incredibly knowledgeable, and friendly, to boot. Sit at the bar with Jeff, and learn about more bourbon than you can begin to learn on any tour.

Everything we had here was fantastic. The goat cheese appetizer was wonderful! I had salmon, which was great - a nice maple glaze with a bacon topping. Others had the filet, strip streak and the cheese burger. All were delicious!! There was a lot of food sharing because the entrées all came with unique but fantastic side dishes; such as... More

Atmosphere, service, bourbon selection were all great; the meal was a bit pricey and while good was not as good as I remember it being in years past. In all still a nice place to stop, especially for sampling bourbons.

We (5) we decided to try Bourbon's Bistro after reading reviews. We were not disappointed ! Our server Edward was engaging, helpful and knowledgable about menu. He mentioned that he was new, and I would never have known that by his service. I had the scallops and they were delicious! Great selection of bourbon to choose from. Everyone in our... More

This is great restaurant, particularly for the basics when you really want them: steak, mashed potatoes, good veg. Of course they have everything else too--chicken, fish, pork...It's a little pricey because the basics are the very best quality, but it's worth every penny. Go for it--you will not be disappointed.
