Food was good. Wine was good but expensive. I wish there had been more selection in the $80-100 range per bottle. Server kept forgetting to bring things we ordered. We were not in a hurry but 3.5 hours for dinner was way too long.

Our first dinner in Louisville was at the English Grill, since we were staying at the Brown Hotel. The restaurant decor is consistent with the hotel; you feel you're back in the days of Al Capone. Our waiter was the perfect mix of light conversation,...More

Had cocktails and dinner in the Grill. Martinis and Old Fashioneds were delightful after a very long day of driving. The restaurant is beautiful, warm, elegant and very inviting. Hot Brown was everything delicious one has heard about, and more! A very special evening.More
