“Great Food...Overpriced Wine List”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

Great decor, wonderful food, and personable staff. Overall a very fun evening. My only criticism is that the wine list is very overpriced. My wife and I enjoy a good chardoney and to see cakebread, that retails for under $50 ,at $150 [or there abouts] is simply wrong. Allow guests to experience your creative food [which is reasonably priced] and a nice bottle of wine.

“Fun place”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

Great food and even better interior. We had more fun walking through the building than we did eating. Even though the food was incredible.... it's much more fun to experience the art, the craziness and the bathrooms!!! YES... you must walk into the bathrooms. if it is a quiet night... and you have a husband or partner who can be 'lookout'... you should duck into the mens room and check out their view from the urinals! Sh...Sh... sh... don't tell anyone I said that.

“World-class food & service”
Reviewed October 20, 2012

Rave reviews on the charred octopus appetizer, even those who "claimed" they don't eat it or like it. Beautifully turned out entrees with regional flare like bourbon glazes, bacon garnishes and cheese grits with roasted corn. Still dreaming about the local roasted beets with pistachio cream.
When your dinner companion goes the the rest room and doesn't come back for 20 mins, that is because it is located in the lobby of the adjacent 21c Museum Hotel. That means a trip through a modern gallery full of beautiful and quirky displays, and a bathroom with surprise features. Not to be missed!

“Good Modern Cuisine”
Reviewed October 19, 2012

Great bet for local ingredients being used in modern cooking. They have a dish for everyone on this menu and feature good local products and favors. Worth stopping in during your visit to Kentucky.
