“Delicious French food in an Art Deco setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2013

Two of us enjoyed Sunday dinner here. Everything was heavenly -- mouthwatering mushrooms, out of this world salmon and trout, and, bien sur, a souffle! Attentive but unobtrusive service in a relaxed atmosphere. The setting is delightful, from the first view of the building and sign to the interior. Simply a wonderful restaurant.

“Paris in Louisville”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2013

As new residents of Louisville we are constantly pleasantly surprised by the high quality of dining here. This week we had a really wonderful dinner at Le Relais which brings the food of a french bistro to central Kentucky. All four of our group had great dinners, and the room, a converted art deco airport terminal, is a beautiful place to enjoy an outstanding meal. We will be back again.

“A place worth trying!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

My wife and I enjoyed a very nice meal last weekend at this fun French bistro in an old airport hanger. We started out with foie gras and snails for the first course. The foie was cooked perfectly, the snails were a bit over cooked. For the entrees we shared the duck and the lamb chops, both were worthy of getting again. The service was good, and the owner was very attentive to our table even though the place was very busy. We finished things off with a soufflé that is well done! Wine list was small but had a few decent bottles.

“perfect fly-in dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

dinner date with another couple on a recommendation from a fellow pilot.
We were late for our reservations, but were recieved graciously. We felt they were glad we had arrived safely, not concerned about being late. The staff were very attentive, and the food preparation was delicious. I got a chuckle out of Mr. Dike's smile as he reminded our host that "the pilots cannot drink".
a great night.

“I want to eat there every night.....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013

My parents have raved about Le Relais for years and finally, I experienced their delight. We sat outside and watched as the sun set and the airplanes came and went....including a stunt plane that was in rare form over the airport...very exciting.
We were dull diners having only appetizers after sitting for two cocktails....but now worry...the staff didn't care. We were treated the same as the large parties with countless courses.
When visiting, make sure to take a quick tour of the original airport building where you can feel the presence of Pan Am, TWA and all the other airlines that went away. THe photos on the wall will help you remember (or learn) of the Stewardess in their great outfits, the control tower speaking on a radio and the times when crowds were allowed to walk out to great a plane.
I will return as soon as possible as the food, location and staff were wonderful.....Thank you!
