We went here on Mother's Day, the day after the Derby. Fabulous views of Louisville and the river,. The food was very good with a wide selection. The staff, although overworked because it was Derby week, was very friendly & attentive.

We went here with a large group (9 people) and it was a great experience. We sat in the room with the revolving floor (yes the floor moves slowly around the panoramic windows over looking the city and the river. While this isn't a cheap meal, it was well worth it. The food was outstanding (most of us got steak).... More

This is a beautiful restaurant with views of the city. The food is very good, but not what I would rate 5 star. The food is 4 stars and the feel of the restaurant is 5 stars. The service is very good and it makes for a great night of romance.

By far our favorite restaurant. The experience is everything you would want and expect in fine dining. The view is spectacular (especially with the revolving floor) the service is tremendous, and the food is absolutely incredible. I've traveled the world and I can honestly say their steak is the best I've ever had. Ruth Chris can't hold a candle to... More

We wanted to check out the famous view of the Rivue Restaurant but had already eaten dinner so went up for drinks and dessert. No one was there to great us we lingered for a bit and wondered if they were open. We finally asked the bartender if they were open and when we told him we were just looking... More

Jasmina was a wonderful server. The scallop dish was excellent and my husband's steak was well-cooked, not terribly tender but tasty.

We enjoyed the food at the Rivue - but ended up ordering room service after the first day as it was less expensive for us. I was shocked at supper as I had a small "tomato" on my reuban sandwich - I had not planned on eating it -my wife encouraged me to - only to find it was a... More

This is a rotating tower restaurant with two independent rotating sections. It is a very fine dining experience with a lovely view of the river. The service was impeccable and the food was wonderful!

I recently had dinner at Rivue to celebrate a special occasion. The dining room was lovely, and the view was amazing. The food was delicious and, I feel, very well priced - the portions were quite generous. We each had an appetizer, shared an entree, and shared a dessert. We left soooo full. This is not a place you will... More

RIVUE Restaurant and Lounge is locally owned and offers a fresh perspective on upscale dining, from 25 stories above the city. Our restaurant is the only one in the world with twin revolving floors, offering guests 360 degree views of downtown and the Ohio River. However, it's our outstanding menu and fresh ingredients that have made RIVUE a standout among Louisville restaurants. From our freshly-squeezed juices and lettuce grown at an agronomic farm to sustainably-sourced seafood, every bite is bursting with flavor. So stop by for a spin and discover Louisville's most memorable dining experience! RIVUE Restaurant & Lounge opened in June of 2007, and brought a new sophistication to Louisville dining, and continues to lead the culinary scene in the Derby city. RIVUE was ranked among the Top 5 Revolving Restaurants in the U.S.
