We did the four course tasting, and thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Great flavors in interesting combinations. But our waiter seemed totally flummoxed that we didn't want to order alcohol, and kept asking "are you sure?" Yes, we're sure. No, you don't need to ask us five times. It was off putting, and I felt like he just wanted us to... More

610 Magnolia is one of our top restaurants of all times! The food, service, atmosphere, pace, wine and spirit lists are all superb! It's not very common that a restaurant can pull all theses factors together seemingly effortlessly! I can't say enough how much we enjoyed the whole experience! Chef Edward Lee's menu is to die for, very innovative and... More

We decided on 610 Magnolia after looking for a date night spot on our weekend trip to Louisville. First, the location is somewhat off the beaten path and when you pull up, you aren't really sure this is where you're supposed to be. Other than having the address, there's not really a sign. When you walk in, you are basically... More

First dining experience at 610 Magnolia. The offerings were unique but food quality and taste fair to poor. We both had lamb chops which were under-cooked and fatty. Tried the duck instead which was good but not great. Portion size was small. Service was attentive and very good. Overall, as one of the most expensive restaurants in Louisville I expected... More

We had heard about this place from TV and top chef and it was as good as we could have hoped for. Great atmosphere and the food was so delicious. Do the wine pairing--you will not regret it. Chef Edward Lee was so gracious and Ricardo the sommelier was very knowledgeable and approachable. 5 stars

While the ambience is business casual, the dishes are extraordinary: ingenuously created melding of ingredients executed with outstanding craft. For those frightened by the prix fixe prices, try Tuesday dinner which is a la carte. Given the quality of the cooking and the service, 610 Magnolia offers good value for the money any night.

Let me just start by saying that dining at 610 Magnolia is worth every penny and we are already plotting a return visit! One week later I am still thinking about the display of culinary talent we enjoyed! From the reservation process to arrival to departure every detail was taken care of with the highest of standards. Ricardo kept a... More

This restaurant has huge potential and from the other reviews is probably on point 99% of the time. The chef is famous in Lville but overextended his restaurant for Derby. Food was average for this caliber. O don't feel they were prepared for what happens, which is everyone comes at the same time...when the Derby's over. I won't go into... More

We booked this restaurant months in advance and it lived up to the anticipated expectation. Food, service, cocktails, decor everything was spot on. It is honestly worth the price. The way that they are able to blend southern ingredients with Asian flavors is both surprising at times and always inventive and welcome. I just wish I had thought to bring... More

Michelin uses this phrase to describe its 3 star restaurants. The phrase also easily describes 610 Magnolia. What a great meal! Four of us enjoyed dinner at 610 Magnolia in early June, 2016. My wife and I have been plowing through the “World’s 50 Best” list of restaurants this year – covering (using the 2016 list) numbers 12, 25, 29,... More
