Excellent Mediterranean

For years the Grape Leaf has been one of my favorite restaurants in Louisville. If you are looking for good, fresh, consistent Greek/Mediterranean food this is a great choice. The service is always friendly and personable. Although the place could use a nice coat of paint it doesn't takeaway... read more

We had a large party on Saturday night here; some of the best food we have had in ages! Simply divine! I had the Balsamic Chicken with green beans, which was out of this world. Plentiful portions, and excellent service! Not that it impacted us, but it is no alcohol, BYOB, restaurant.

Had my first visit to the Grape Leaf for lunch with friends today and was very impressed. I ordered the chicken kabobs with grilled tomatoes and honey mustard sauce on the side. It came with one side and paired very well with the pearl cous cous with vegetables that I selected. Service was friendly and attentive. The restaurant was cozy... More

Their hummus is to die for. They serve it with the best pita I've ever had. The pita bread is so soft, unlike any where else. Also there is a finely minced garnish that has a spicy kick. So good! I love the Vegetarian platter even though I am a meat eater. The Greek Salad is outstanding as well. Very... More

We get the black beans, tomatoes, avocado, and romaine in a flour tortilla with brown rice and parsley as a side. Actually what we like best about this restaurant is the chef coming out to talk to us about what our options are for a meal. He does it in such a kind and considerate way it adds to the... More

I was happy to see the cosmetic redesign of the Grape Leaf menu as the old one was like holding a copy of War and Peace. Unfortunately the changes didn't end there. The menu itself was different. Hamburgers were on the menu and the koshari that was so good was now unavailable. Most disappointing was the disappearance of the fruit... More

The menu at The Grape Leaf on Frankfort Avenue in St. Matthews never fails to please the palate. We dined with another couple there tonight (12/20/14). This time we whetted our appetites with a smooth onion hummus, then moved on to soups and salads. These items are so full of food and flavor that you can order the combination and... More

I have seen bad reviews regardind mediocre food and bad service. I was afraid to eat here. Please take the chance. The food is wonderful and the service was excellent. We had the vegetarian sampler and the pomegranate balsamic chicken. The veggie platter was overflowing with wonderful items. The chicken dish had a very good taste but only a few... More
