This was a wonderful place for lunch, brunch, and dinner, but sadly, is now closed because Sullivan University decided to take the culinary program in another direction.

I've heard great things for so long, and was very disappointed in Sunday brunch. It was a rather small menu, & two of us got the special. It was bland, and frankly I would've made a better dish. Two of our sides were forgotten, and we had to ask twice for them. The French press coffee was the best part.... More

The best thing about our visit was my husband's steak! I will definitely get this if we return. Our server suggested a wine saying it was from a bottle that had just been opened- another selection I SHOULD have made... I wondered with every sip of the wine I chose how long ago that particular bottle HAD been opened, since... More

The restaurant is dimly lit with some natural light from windows streaming in, which makes the setting romantic, elegant and inviting. It is directly across from The Bakery (so that's worth a quick trip across the intersection!) and there is plenty of parking. We went for lunch and had awesome brunch options (which is helpful since I'm a vegetarian and... More

First of all I have been around Louisville, I mean all around Louisville and I have eaten all around Louisville. But, I had never head of WINSTON'S. The staff was very attentive the dinning room made you feel welcome. For me the main attraction was the steak, what can I say, I love a great steak. From the first most... More

I was with a group of eleven for lunch. The restaurant is open for lunch only 11:00 to 2:00 pm Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, so we arrived at 11:30 am. Service was excellent, the menu is exciting and varied, and the food hot and excellent. My only quibble would be that my seafood frittata was a little over cooked for... More

Winston's Restaurant is part of Sullivan University's Food Service School. Both the kitchen and service staff are students under very close supervision. The food is great and the service is outstanding. It is not a cheap eat, but is well worth the price. The "Not Brown" is one of their best items!All the appetizers are very interesting and it makes... More

Our server recommended the Not Brown and it was amazing. Very rich and every bite delicious. Cannot wait to come back from brunch ! Service was impeccable...very professional. Server really knew the menu, ingredients, preparations, etc. Very friendly. It is a little tough to find but once you do you will not forget it.

Our daughter was visiting so we wanted to go to a nice place for dinner. My wife and I had been to Winston's several years ago and the food and service was outstanding so we had no concerns about this being a great experience. We were very wrong. The food was only OK and the service was disorganized and uncertain.... More

I ordered grilled chicken sandwich, but the food was cold, and untasty (may be stale or something). It was the worst grilled chicken I have ever had.
