Solid food, loved watching the sun set from our table. The service though was slow, and we were often put on hold for another group who looked to be recreating an engagement. They demanded much of the restaurant staff's time, and that impacted our meal- what should have been a 90 minute night turned into 3 hours. We were celebrating... More

This is a family favorite for brunch (or sometimes dinner) because of the fun experience of dining on a rotating floor, 25 floors up, over the Ohio River. There aren't as many offerings (especially in the dessert department) and the buffet food isn't as flavorful. The omelet station is good, and the waffles and the cuts of meat (beef tenderloin...

We dined at RIVUE to celebrate the end of a great project. The revolving floor provided spectacular views of downtown. Everything was delicious from the cheese plate, Zucchini fritters to my order of Crispy skin Duck. So fantastic!!

I visited for the first time a year ago with friends for dinner. I believe this may be an annual event when we are in Louisville. This up-scale restaurant has an amazing view of downtown Louisville and the Ohio River and you fine dine 25 floors high above the city. Plan to spend some time as this is fine dining,... More

This is was a five star experience at a four star restaurant in my opinion. The atmosphere was romantic. The 360 spinning view of Louisville was amazing. The service was average but the assistant server was on top of everything we needed. The food was delicious and priced about what I thought. Good enough that I would come back! The... More

I have eaten at the RIVUE twice. My first time was with two of my friends on Halloween for my birthday. I ordered the New York Strip and while it came out a tad bit under what I would have liked it was one of the most flavorful steaks I have ever eaten. The mashed potatoes and onion rings made...

I had dinner here a couple of times during my stay for business. Its a nice place to sit, and look out (view is beautiful) but the wait times were pretty bad.

Friday night dinner plans prior to a how at the Kentucky Center for the Arts was a great way to start. The service was very good all night. The food was very well prepared and presented nicely. We had the Seared Tuna Loin and Rack of Lamb. We fully enjoyed the meal. We went prior to sundown. We believe that... More

The restaurant was better than we had expected. The ambiance with the rotating room is very unique and offered many exquisite view is the Ohio River and Louisville. The food was excellent, the service average, but efficient non the less. I would recommend it if we had friends going to town.

Brought the family. Great food and service. Views were awesome. Prices are like any good steakhouse and the steak was cooked great. Wine prices very reasonable. Make sure to specify being in the revolving part as some tables are not in ghat area. Go, have fun, it's a must do in Louisville.

Our restaurant is the only one in the world with twin revolving floors, offering guests 360 degree views of downtown and the Ohio River.

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.
