Calamari appetizer is very good and steaks are melt in your mouth good. Service is very good although space is very limited and a bit cramped.

Authentic Argentine cuisine, especially grilled meats. Best selection of Argentine wines in town.

Palermo Viejo has a great selection of Argentinian beef. They're tenderloin is divine! And the house salad with hearts of palm really compliments it well. I recommend this restaurant to everyone that comes to Louisville.

We took visiting family here for dinner and all ordered different dishes. To the person, everyone enjoyed their meals, especially the unique flavor profiles of the Argentine dishes. On top of this, our waitress was friendly and professional. We'll be back for sure!

What ambience and presentation.... Was looking for a dinner with work colleagues and boy did we find a great spot. I looked through the menu and found three things that I wanted to try. So no problem over the next few weeks we will go...More

There is no better filet for under $20 and certainly no better mixed grill (with an optional fried egg on top) for $22! The service is always great, the sangria is cold and if that isn't enough, then there is dessert!

My girlfriend and I loved this place. I was told to pick anything on the menu and it would be enjoyable, and it was.

I love the flavor they bring to a steak, South American style. Really good value for the quality of the food they serve.

Great food. We had a meat sampler that was outstanding! The service was wonderful and the ambiance was romantic. Great place for a special meal that will not drain your wallet. Tasteful and pleasant. My favorite dinner place in Louisville.
