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.

Better food, value and service at many other restaurants.

I ordered a cocktail which came in a dirty spotted glass. My medium ribeye was over seared and the fat was crispy. My dates duck was undercooked. The server did not bother to ask if it was ok when she noticed she wasn't eating it and did not want to take it to go. It was a sad experience. I... read more

25th floor overlooking the Ohio River! We were seated in the revolving area. Our party of six ordered excellent steaks and Salmon. We ended with desserts (yum) and French pressed coffee which included an assortment of condiments for the coffee. The presentation was priceless! I tried fresh Orange zest and chocolate in my coffee with a dab of whipped Creme!!... More

We ate here December 29, 2014. Our reservation was at 7PM, so we were seated at the revolving restaurant. (There's a part of the restaurant that doesn't turn and most people who have no reservations were placed there, although they try to accommodate all requests to be seated at the revolving part.) Our waiter was Amir who provided us excellent... More

Located on the 25 th floor of the fabulous Galt House Hotel....a legend in itself. Exceptional service, delicious food and a 360 degree view of beautiful Louisville and the Ohio River! All this at a reasonable cost. Be sure to visit at Christmas time.....exquisitely decorated.

Despite the tittle I did like this restaurant. My wife and I were in town to do the Urban Bourbon Trail for our anniversary and I wanted a special place for dinner. The restaurant has two rotating Pods with views of the river, on top of the Galt House Hotel. We were able to get a seat in one of... More

I'm not sure of the frequency of the revolution, I believe about 1 revolution every 1/2 hour, but... More

My wife and I dined here while we stayed at the Galt House for her birthday weekend. I was surprised that it was not crowded on a Friday night especially as how booked the hotel was for Riverfest weekend. We dined in one of the rotating sections which allowed a lovely and ever changing view. The piano player was an... More

A large group of us went to Rivue for a business dinner. The service was great and the view from the revolving section has to be one of the best in town. I tried the crispy duck. It was quite good although for the price, we were paying partly for the view. Wouldn't hesitate to go again if I could... More

Wait staff were great. Food prepared and presented well. Pricey, but worth the $$$. We didn't have a reservation, but were seated immediately. Enjoyed the piano music and the view of the city from the 24th floor.

Even if you are not staying at The Galt house, The Rivue is worth trying out. They are a high end place with the some of the best food in town and service that will blow you away. The servers are very classy yet humble. I have been to a lot of higher end places that may have good food... More
