    The ambience at Corbett's is perfect for a special occasion or just for fun. Our food was good to excellent. The egg on the Croque Madam was overlooked and the frites not hot enough but everything else was great. Hard to find a better lunch or dinner in Louisville.

    My guests and I had a thoroughly enjoyable dinner at Corbetts. None of us had eaten here before, and I really appreciated the intimate setting. We actually could have conversation without feeling as though we were yelling at each other. Our server was very knowledgeable about the menu and gave us good information regarding the evening's offerings. All of us greatly enjoyed our selections. A highlight for me was the mussel starter in ginger fennel broth. My lamb shank was perfectly cooked and so tender it literally fell off the bone. One tiny misstep with a mushroom side on my entree being so salty it was inedible. Mentioned to the server at her inquiry, being that all 3 people at my table agreed the mushrooms were not edible. Interesting that the uneaten item was then placed in my to go box. We made a request for a dessert item offered on the tasting menu but not on the dinner menu which was graciously accommodated. I thought the ending mini dessert plate was very interesting and I fell in love with the mini coconut macaroon bars. I would recommend Corbetts for anyone looking for an intimate place to relax and enjoy a foodie dining experience. I look forward to future dining experiences here.

    First time there....Party of 7 at noon on a Saturday.....celebrating 2 birthdays and a graduation..... EVERYTHING WAS WONDERFUL..... The food was outstanding, right down to the burgers and fries!!! Really!! Two of our party ordered them and could barely get their mouths around the succulent bison burgers......... and the FRIES? Oh My Gosh! The best any of us had ever had in our entire lives!! :) The salads were crisp and the dressings were wonderful....... One of our party had the hot chicken (she is 89) and asked for some sauce that wasn't quite so hot.....They MADE HER a special garlic/herb aioli! The whole experience was delightful...... We will be back!! and OFTEN!!!

    The staff is truly outstanding from the moment you walk in. Their extensive knowledge of the menu and the dignity with which they treat guests is above excellent. The food is beyond comparison from the unique dishes to the meticulous detail with which they are prepared. You will not need a knife at Corbett's for your lamb as it literally falls off the bone with a gentle scrape of the fork. You may find a cheaper place to eat in Louisville but I assure you that you will not find better food, atmosphere or service. It is worth the price tag & I do not say that often. You will not be disappointed.

    We dined at Corbett's for our second anniversary and couldn't have chosen a better restaurant. First, the ambiance is lovely. It's classy yet comfortable. Our server, Daisy, was attentive, pleasant, and informative. We opted for the five-course meal, and it was served at an ideal pace. All of the courses were flavorful and delicious. We look forward to returning as soon as we can!

    I have had good dining experiences at Corbett's in the past. We chose Corbett's for dining before a concert nearby. It was a mistake. We were oddly greeted and kind of left hanging. Our server tried to do a good job but was not initially to be our server. I find the menu to be pretentious and unfriendly--even to foodies. The dishes themselves did not live up to Corbett's reputation. My grouper was fishy and that was the only flavor and the risotto was crunchy. Other diners also reported a lack of taste in their dishes and undercooked pasta. Since my plate was cleared with a large portion of food remaining, the server asked if I want to take it home. I declined and explained problems. The entree was removed from our bill which was generous.

    This elegant, lovely, restaurant is something special. Calm and easy going, while still upscale. We have been to a private party last year that was undeniably one of the best evenings we have ever shared with friends. Last weekend we took friends to Corbett's--OOT guests, so wanted to do something special. A fabulous menu, indescribable really. And we were so happy to see that Corbett's allows a shared entree for another $5! Fantastic! I had a grilled peach wrapped in prosciutto, with arugula and basil oil and a sliver of brie! AMAZING! And if you can't get a reservation try Equus, Chef S. Dean Corbett's other restaurant. More casual, but outstanding menu, just the same. Thanks Chef!

    Lunch on the porch on a cool fall afternoon was a delight. Blankets at the table were a winning touch. The food didn't live up to my expectations or Dean Corbett's usual standards. My guest got a chicken linguine that would beat be described as bland. I was intrigued by the sloppy joe special which came on a wonderful bun with tobacco onions and sweet pickle chips, but the meat proved equally tasteless. Not sure if they've reduced the flavors to please an older clientele, but I was a bit disappointed.

    Great food! Great atmosphere! A huge wine list. Pleasant waiter, very friendly. We really enjoyed our dinner. The sea bass was amazing! I had the caprese salad and it was the best. My husband had the lamb and loved it too. The cheese cake was wonderful!! I would love to return to try to other dishes. Drinks were a little over priced.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 9/6/2014
    You have to either be local or operating on informed advice to easily find Corbett's. Carefully tucked away in an otherwise industrial venue of hospitals, home supply and great outdoors stores, Corbett's serves wonderful imaginative food and drink in a warm upscale atmosphere. Wait staff is well trained, prompt, but not obtrusive. They present an air of enjoyment in their service. The front Porch or Patio are enjoyable when the weather is right. The bar is well staffed and drinks are well served. On a less formal note, if by chance you want to just get away from the above, (and every now and then we do) on occasion the celler is a quiet retreat with the same enjoyable service, drinks and food. Always enjoyable.

    Loved the food. The service was less than desirable. Our entree was brought out before the appetizer. The person in the kitchen did not see the appetizer order. The server was 20 Years old, very polite. We waited a long time to get it straight. Talked to the Manager who was apologetic. However, my husband was given a cake with a candle for his 80th Birthday.

    The food was good but not as great as I was expecting. The biggest complaint is that the food wasn't really hot for any of our courses. After we were seated we waited 10 minutes to get a glass of water and a menu. Not what I was expecting for a fine dining experience and the dining room wasn't even busy.

    This was an amazing meal, potentially the best my wife & I have ever had while dining out. The service was attentive, the courses we had ordered arrived what seemed to be amazingly fast - although it may have only seemed that way because we were quite wrapped up in savoring every flavor. The grilled peach appetizer with prosciutto, herbs and brie is worth trying, and the Berkshire pork chop was perfectly done, juicy and flavorful (though a bit heavy with the pearl onions, but they were thankfully served on the side). Also, if the Woodford Reserve chocolate ice cream is available when you go, I suggest you order it and at least split it with someone special. You'll both be glad you did.

    Website depicts this restaurant as an old dairy farm mansion, sitting on 2 acres. It in fact, sits in the middle of a shopping center, surrounded by parking lots. Outside is a nice porch ... With a view of the parking lot. We were seated inside. Expected a former home feel. Felt like Shoneys. It literally took 15 minutes before we were given water and a menu. One hour before bread arrived. Not kidding. Two hours before dinner arrived. Other tables came later and finished their meal before ours arrived. I know it was PGA week,but restaurant was not even full. On the plus side, food was good, and they comped us half the price of the meal to compensate for the abysmal service. Even so, not worth the effort. Will never return or recommend.
