While our food was perfectly acceptable, there are so many other places that are great. We started with a middle eastern appetizer plate to share which was simple and good. Tuna tar tar was lacking, tomatoes and mozzarella were fine. All of our entrees, Caribbean ribs, calamari and Indian Paella were all good, just not amazing. Nice servers and a... More

We chose this place because we enjoy ethnic foods and Ramsi's did not disappoint. The menu has a little of everything, but leans more towards a Mediterranean trend. We had the hummus plate with warm pita, the Faithful Falafel, the Duck Mofongo, and some Bourbon from their impressively long list to chose from. Our son had the kid's mini Bison... More

Love this area of Louisville. Stopped in on a late Sunday afternoon and had no wait. Menu is broad and seems very good. We sampled three dishes and would love to go back and try the Sunday buffet.

Was excited to eat here after seeing the menu and looking for some healthy vegetarian food. Nice decor and ambience however food was not good, it was soooo salty and literally drowning in soy sauce, like soy sauce rice soup. Made me feel really ill and was such a waste of great produce. Not recommended.

My husband and I travel to Louisville every couple of months and we are always looking for new places to eat. I don't know why it took us so long to discover this wonderful restaurant. I searched for "vegan" and "vegetarian" options and it just popped up. Anyone - vegan, pescetarian, carnivore, whatever - would be happy with the menu.... More

The Sunday brunch buffet was excellent! Wide variety of tasty dishes that were all hot and fresh. Dessert bar was equally great. Well worth a visit!

Great decor. Really good crab cakes, practically pure crab meat. Didn't care for the remoulade, chunks of dill pickle. Service top notch.

This restaurant has been a mainstay of hip Louisville culture for a couple of decades now. The owners try hard to make the menu accessible for people of all economic brackets, and it's great on a hot date, a family get together, or a business lunch. The restaurant is local (they source food, in part, directly from a certified organic... More

We were looking for a vegetarian place for 2 of our 5 couples. Ramsi's food was great. Only glitch was being out of a couple things we tried to order. Service was also very good.
