This is a traditional upscale restaurant located in the old section of Louisville and upon entry you will realize that the management still gives a damn about china, flatware, glasses and table cloths and that is worthy of commendation.
We felt a little under dressed but again this is America so anything above shorts and flip flops is probably welcome! The welcome was genuine and gracious - liked the look of the bar but I don't think this establishment is looking for bar flies despite the extensive spirits selection on display.
Seated at moderately comfortable chairs but a well sized table for our part of 3. Decent wine list but nothing particularly unique - wine glasses were the only notable concession to economy with the glass thickness on the heavy side - probably for durability.
Home made soup was good if surprisingly spicy for an Italian vegetable. Good salad though. Filet and potato cake was spot on, Salmon good, scallops well cooked but a little busy with toppings and too much balsamic vinaigrette.
Service was decent - as expected, familiar american style.
All in all a good visit, well run and has an old familiar feel to it that very few restaurants have anymore. The kind of place the older generations appreciate yet still appeals to anyone that actually takes note of the hardware and work that goes into such an establishment. Nice extra touches included a pianist (surprising for mid week) and ornate traditional tea pots (although served with half and half instead of milk and that negatively affects flavor). Definitely return.
