Description: 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.

Great decor, great food, great service, great view! We visit Louisville once a year for a sports event. We will definitely eat here again! Loved it!

Food was food however the waiter told me they were small portions when actually they were large. Consequently I got too much food. As a business traveler, I couldn't take leftovers with me. The food was presented nicely but wasn't he most flavorful food I've ever had. Rotating floor gives you a great view of the river. Be sure to... More

We were excited to eat at this revolving restaurant for our wedding anniversary. However, the former city mayor and his party was seated a few tables from us, and seemed to get all of the attention for the evening. We had to ask for bread several times, as it was "not ready," as well as waited for our water to... More

Hubby and I dined here July 19 to celebrate my birthday. We are Louisville natives, but have never dined at Rivue. Shame on us....this restaurant is fantastic! We regularly dine at the foody places on Bardstown Rd and Frankfort Ave but just never think about the hotel restaurants. The staff is very serious about excellent service (kudos to David). The...

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
