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.

Wanted to love this Restaurant given the reviews. Pros: variety of food, atmosphere, price, desserts Cons: lack of parking, some of the food was cold (biscuits) or the trays were empty Worth going to at least once.

We were in Louisville for four days and nights earlier this month as part of our exploration of the area. We had tried to get into another restaurant for an early supper with no success so we opened our Urban Bourbon Trail passports and found that Ramsi’s on the World was nearby. It’s a cute place with a great outdoor... More
