This was one of our favorite restaurants but had not been there in awhile apparently ownership has changed. Sadly it has lost "favorite" status. KY hot chicken was overcooked without any heat. Hummus was pasty. Steak was prepared nicely but presented on a bed of...More

Popped in for a quick bite. We both had lunch wraps which were both tasty and plentiful. They also offer nice alternatives to fries if you are fed up with them. I had the cucumber salad which was delicious. Friendly staff, overall very good.

Visit tonight at the Bistro 301. Had some mixed starters and a bourbon marinated ribeye. The food was good and the Louisville Lib with basil (A drink) was eve better. Value for money but not above and beyond.

The seating arrangements allowed intermingling of guests. It was in good proximity to the hotel. The walking distance made it better and allowed for exercise after the meal.

We had lunch here on two occasions. The first time my salad was fantastic. When I tried repeating it a few days later it wasn't as good. The other people in my party had mixed reviews. Nice atmosphere.

We came here because it was not a themed chain but a proper restaurant. The salmon was fantastic, the brussel sprouts a little too underdone, and some of the spinach leaves were past their best. But overall a nice place. Would definately recommend and go...More
