Loved, loved this restaurant. Not fussy at all. Staff was very hip and fun. Our server was top-notch professional. Loved the octopus, braised short rib and the gnocchi. The cookie plate for dessert was sublime. Can't wait to return.

Honestly this restaurant is not that expensive, but my spouse and I could not resist trying a lot of different dishes. Entrees ran something like $10 to $35 dollars. Our tab exceeded $100, but we had the following: best sardines and roe appetizer, a cannot-spell-the-ingredients soup, a goat cheese and beet salad, solid & safe bison burger and fries, "who-knew" scallops and vegetables in squid ink, hay gelato( no typo, you read it right), assorted gelato and sorbet and a flight of fine bourbon. Some of this might sound a little bizarre, at least it did to me, but it tasted so good! The chef may be a wizard.

Service was smooth as silk and very efficient. Setting in 21C Museum Hotel, a must see but that is another story. Basically fine dining in Louisville downtown.

Fabulous! We at here on Tuesday March 19. The chef had just changed the menu completely. There were four of us and everyone had something different. We all passed around the food. Every morsel was excellent. The service was impeccable and the decor very artsy. It was a wonderful night.

Fantastic service in the bar area on a Saturday evening for my group of seven. No complaints about the cocktails, bourbon flights, or price. You make take your drinks into the museum area with you.

We ate here twice during our recent trip to Louisville.Very nice artsy ambiance.The ceilings have seagulls with their guts spilling out- portraying an old wive's tale of feeding alka -seltzer to seagulls -causes them to explode ! We sat in a booth surrounded by other artwork.I had the salmon bagel, my husband had the frittata, my daughter -eggs benedict.They have an olive oil pound cake which was awesome.Must try it.I would recommend it to everybody!

Don't forget to tour the museum afterwards in 21 c - it is free.
