RIVUE, Louisville’s newest upscale restaurant and lounge, is unlike anything you’ve seen before. It features breathtaking panoramic views, sophisticated décor, and twin revolving floors that let you drink it all in. And the contemporary cuisine is just as amazing. RIVUE is more than a new restaurant, it’s dining at a whole new level.

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

Sadly we did not get seated in either of the rotating rooms despite requesting it and seeing several empty tables that remained empty the whole night. We loved the view, but couldn't believe how forceful and how cold the air was that blew on us all night. Even with winter coat and scarf re-configured, it was CHILLY! My food was... More

This was a wonderful place to eat while we were in town for March Madness. The steak was wondeful. Our service was fantastic. The complimentary desserts and candy bar put this stop over the top. Really expensive but definitely worth it. Make reservations so you can get a table that rotates. View of the river was grand. Highly recommend.

I was in Louisville on business on my 2 year old's birthday, so we decided to head to the top floor of the hotel we were staying in to celebrate a little. I made reservations for 6:30 p.m. so we could watch the sunset from the beautiful vista the rotating tower provided. A word of caution, the view is what... More
