RIVUE, Louisville’s newest upscale restaurant and lounge, is unlike anything you’ve seen before.

MOST AMAZING FOOD AND VIEW

We had cocktails on Friday evening, and there was an impromptu fireworks show going on. Folks were friendly, wine list extensive, view was amazing, and since it revolves, you really got a good view of the city. Liked it so well we made a reservation for the Sunday brunch. Now....be advised that... read more

The restaurant is quite impressive and the view from the rotating pods is fantastic. The food does not live up to the setting. While the bread and flavored butter were quite tasty, the crab cake was bland and that theme continued with the entrée. The pork chop was perfectly cooked in one small spot but was over done and dry... More

The views are sure one of the best in the city, however, the glass windows were a bit dirty from outside. The food was okay as they do not have many vegetarian options. They gave us a free desert as it was our anniversary, which was nice!

Broad menu. A little expensive. Confusing for visitors to know how to order or go to buffet line at breakfast. Staff seemed harried.

For at least the last 10 years we've gone to J. Graham at the Brown Hotel for Mother's Day. Last year they cheapened the buffet. No omelet station or prime rib. We decided to try the brunch at Rivue this year. There was no comparison between the two buffets. Rivue had a huge selection of cold and hot foods. There... More

I loved the presentation of choices and the viniagrette dressing as a salad choice. The roundabout of the restaurant is rather overblown in that almost half of the trip is building. The rest of the view is river with bridges and Indiana. The service staff is exceptionally good.

Great view of the city, good food, did take quite a while to get our food, but the bread and specialty butters were very tasty!

The views of the Ohio River and (parts of) the Louisville skyline make this place unique. The food and service was a disappointment. The food, itself, was pretty ordinary considering the prices. Each member of our party ordered a steak. One was severely over-cooked. It took twenty minutes or longer to get it replaced. By that point the other 3... More

We ate here for my husband's birthday, and it was deliscious! I was really disappointed, because when I made reservations, I asked for a seat by the window, but we were sat in the middle of the room, despite there being a couple two seater tables, right next to the window. However, the food was amazing, and the service was... More
