Everything was excellent! From the phone call to make the reservation, to our effortless parking, to the decor, to the numerous food displays, to the end of the meal. While the Sunday brunch is pricey, it is worth it for special occasions. There are always some special and ecclectic meats, cheeses, salads and desserts. In my experience in almost all... More

The only reason I did not give five stars is because the tables are just too close together. Other than that, the service was excellent, food was well prepared and tasty, the 360 degree view was beautiful and the dessert cart!!!

The food could have been a little better, one of the steaks was very tough. But overall it was a great experience. We loved the atmosphere and the view. The staff was very nice.

My husband and I ate Sunday Bruch at Rivue for our 7th anniversary. We chose it for the spectacular views of the city and river. The brunch offered a huge selection with delicious food. We were very impressed with the service and ambience. The price was high, $100 total for brunch with mimosas and tip. However, they did validate our... More

We have always enjoyed finding a great Sunday Brunch spot. WE found an amazing place for Sunday Brunch here in Louisville. On the top floor of the west side of the Galt House Hotel this high end restaurant rotates 360 degrees in an hours time. The setting looks out over the Ohio River and downtown Louisville. The formal dining accommodations... More

My wife and I ate there one night during our stay at Galt House. We had appetizers and desserts. They were all delicious and the service was very attentive, but not over-bearing.

Staying at the Galt for a conference. Splurged on dinner at the 25th floor Rivue. A cocktail (great!) An app (great!) A $48 ribeye (great!). All the time watching the amazing free candy cart approach each table after dinner. I was so jacked for my turn! Then my waiter slapped my doggy bag and my $87 bill on my table... More

It was simply a magical experience, if you want to impress someone, take her/him there. The views only are more than a reason to go. Not to mention the incredible food, and the service. Absolutely top of the class.
