It wasn't easy to get a reservation here. We anticipated a great meal, in part due to the hype about the chef on Top Chef. The service was very good but the food just okay. We were told that the chef was there that night as he had been traveling a lot and we would probably see him in the restaurant. No show. I ordered the catfish Asian style. It was okay but not memorable. The desert was berries, meringue strips and some type of gelled fruit. Not good. This chef needs to pay more attention to what is being served.

Wonderful cooking and creative menus and good wine. I was very glad to finally be able to be there. I wish they had mentioned the upcharge for the foie gras, though warned, I might have passed what is the best I have ever had.

We are in Louisville every year for Derby and 610 would be impossible to get into so we were glad to be here on a regular weekend to be able to try it. The choices for a 3 or 4 course dinner ($55 & $65) were interesting and fun to be able to try a bunch of different items. The smoked octopus was excellent on the first course, chilled pea soup superb on course #2. The salmon and scallops were both great on #3. The banana split flavors desert was the only one that was not too interesting. Good wine list with a balance of prices so you did not have tp start at $80 and go up from there, we tried two nice Spanish wines in the $40 range. Service was good and the place is comfortable. It is in a great neighborhood, Old Louisville, which boasts one of the largest collections of Victorian houses in the country, makes a great stroll on a nice evening.

The food is inventive and the ingredients are very fresh. The menu gives ample choices. My husband had three courses and I had four. We found the Amuse trio very interesting and enjoyed all the flavors. The 1st and 2nd course were also very good. We were a bit disappointed with the entree - I had the salmon and my husband had the lamb. They failed to ask how we would like it cooked and I found the salmon a little undercooked for my taste. We did not try the pairings but did find the wines to be very good and the sommelier was very helpful. One distraction was that we dined on an exceptionally hot night and were seated upstairs. The air conditioning did not work well. The experience was pretty pricy - around $180 with food and wine and the 18% gratuity which is added on the bill. Overall, I would say the dining experience was good but not perfect.
