“Fun place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

Great food and even better interior. We had more fun walking through the building than we did eating. Even though the food was incredible.... it's much more fun to experience the art, the craziness and the bathrooms!!! YES... you must walk into the bathrooms. if it is a quiet night... and you have a husband or partner who can be 'lookout'... you should duck into the mens room and check out their view from the urinals! Sh...Sh... sh... don't tell anyone I said that.

“World-class food & service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

Rave reviews on the charred octopus appetizer, even those who "claimed" they don't eat it or like it. Beautifully turned out entrees with regional flare like bourbon glazes, bacon garnishes and cheese grits with roasted corn. Still dreaming about the local roasted beets with pistachio cream.
When your dinner companion goes the the rest room and doesn't come back for 20 mins, that is because it is located in the lobby of the adjacent 21c Museum Hotel. That means a trip through a modern gallery full of beautiful and quirky displays, and a bathroom with surprise features. Not to be missed!

“Good Modern Cuisine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

Great bet for local ingredients being used in modern cooking. They have a dish for everyone on this menu and feature good local products and favors. Worth stopping in during your visit to Kentucky.

“Great local ingredients- short on vegetarian options”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

The title says it all- quality of food and ingredients is very good, but there are very few options for vegetarians unless you ask them to doctor the dishes a little bit. Great atmosphere and good service.
