Great service and food. The restaurant has great location and atmosphere. There was a piano player and beautiful decor. Brunch here has always been special. My wife and I have made dining here a tradition.

A friend and I visited Rivue during a weekday evening, just to enjoy the view, a drink, and a light meal. Though I was dressed in business casual, I didn't feel welcomed. I offered to sit in the lounge area, which seemed to be a bit more acceptable. The food and view was fabulous; however, I didn't feel comfortable enough... More

Clearly Rivue takes it's service very very seriously. From the friendly hostesses, to the wait staff knowing our names, from the knowledgable recommendations, to the complimentary desserts. They put their service on the 25th floor, just like the restaurant itself. The food was very good, too. I had the Alaskan Halibut and my husband had the Scallops. They were so... More

We were staying at the Galt House, attending Abbey Road on the River. Knowing we would not be getting to bed until the late hours on the Saturday, and had a busy schedule for the Sunday we decided to prebook Sunday Brunch for 10.30am. The views from the revolving restaurant were eye catching. However you need to remember that if... More

We did make reservations until late in the afternoon and were thrilled to find we could get in..our happiness only increased when they seated us at a table in the revolving area! We were lucky enough to have a storm roll in and back out, all the while having very attentive service and fabulous food. If you want to have... More

My wife and I have tried about half a dozen restaurants downtown, and Rivue on the 25 floor of the Galt House was by far our favorite. The view is awesome, service was great, and the food was fantastic. The portion sizes were generous, something a bit unusual for such an upscale restaurant. The live piano music sealed the outstanding... More

We were greeted and seated at a lovely table and our server Evan was just simply Outstanding! Not only did he greet us with such a warm welcome and smile, but he held this wonderful type of service throughout our entire dinning experience. Our dinner was incredibly delicious, as my husband tried the delicious Pork Chop and I had the... More

We splurged to eat at this remarkable revolving restaurant at the top of the famed Galt House Hotel. Upon being seated in one of the revolving sections at a 4 top we asked to be moved to the more intimate 2 top by the window, but were told that table had "reservations". Our service was unfortunately "folksie", though attentive. We... More

Drew was our waiter and he went the extra mile to help us have a great experience. We came for after dinner drinks and a dessert. The staff was amazing to accommodate us late and be so attentive to our table. The staff was friendly, the place so lavish and breathtaking that I was truly impressed by all the southern... More

We were given a nice gift certificate and had never been to Rivue. The service was excellent and very well paced. We had nicely made drinks and appetizers. I had the "Kentucky Antipasto" which was very different and good. My wife had the mushroom soup which she greatly enjoyed. The bread service was unique, fun and good, and the entrees... More
