Overall experience was excellent!
Overall experience was excellent! From start to finish we couldn't have been happier. The service was great, our server appropriately attentive. The selections of wine were numerous and reasonably priced. We were able to order variations of the menu to fit our Lenten diet. Perfect dinner out, thank you.

We were there for brunch,the food selection was well prepared but not outstanding. The menu did feature non breakfast foods in addition to the usual omelet station, biscuits etc. The smoked fish and sirloin were favorites. The cauliflower-brie soup was exceptional. The waiter was attentive, not obtrusive. There was a low table so kids could help themselves to chicken strips nice touch!
We will try it for a weekday dinner!

Ky Derby Weekend
Given that this was Derby weekend, I can forgive some problems. The service was a little uneven but the servers were extremely pleasant and tried hard to overcome inexperience. The prix fixe menu was quite nice, although having no choice for appetizer or salad seemed odd. And the salad was tiny. The shrimp appetizer was excellent. The steak which two of us ordered was not. My friend's steak was full of fat so that he really only received half the meat. Mine had very little fat but much gristle and little flavor. The accompanying vegetables were excellent. While nicely presented, the desserts were pretty lackluster. Overall, I had expected better of a restaurant I have enjoyed previously. However, I will try again.

Good food, good service
Seven of us went to Limestone for dinner after the Derby. We were soaking wet and a bit sloppy by then, but the staff at restaurant made us feel welcome. Service was unobtrusive, but on the spot. Food was a prefix menu. All courses were well prepared and flavorful. Entrees especially tasty. I had the veal chop and loved every bite. Served with creamy mashed potatoes, yummy sauce. Very tender. Others in party had ribeye, not a bite left on any plate. We all left stuffed to the gills and very happy.

Great Food with a Southern Twist
I have been to Limestone for business dinners several times and it has been a great place to have great food with attentive but patient service that makes it a good place to do business. The food selections are interesting and well-prepared. My salmon dish came to the table on a board stave which was interesting. My colleagues had a veal chop which they said was excellent and the ribeye which one of my colleagues said was a little below par. The appetizers (shrimp cocktail and divers scallops) were very good. The bread had a nice cheesy flavor without being heavy and overwhelming.

Another memorable visit to
Another memorable visit to Limestone. Owner/Chef Jim Gerhardt has a southern style gourmet menu that changes regularly and never disappoints. Great for fresh fish, beef and "southern comfort" food. Service at this restaurant is alwys top notch, but on this night it was over the top. Highly recommend!

Excellent Dinner with Friends.
After a long week in the fast lane, this was just the ticket. It was quiet, elegant and relaxed. The staff was friendly and not pushy. They knew the menu. Everything came to us. The food was wonderful. I had the grouper special. It came with whipped potatoes, grilled zucchini, shrimp and. maybe, the best scallop I have ever eaten. They should offer those as an appetizer. The prices are comparable to other restaurants of the kind.
5/16/2013 4:00:00 PM
What a deal!
June grill special was terrific deal - grilled salad, mixed grill seafood and grilled dessert - at $28/person.
6/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
The seafood mixed grill was wonderful. It included swordfish, shrimp, and diver scallops, accompanied by cauliflour, mashed potatoes and swiss chard. The seafood had a great flavor enhanced by a tasty, but not overpowering sauce.

one of our favorites
We love Limestone for special occasion dinners. We have never been disappointed with the 'feed me' specials. This time, my husband did a 'feed me light', which is 3 courses chosen by the chef (salad, ribeye with mushroom risotto, molten chocolate cake this time). Our daughter had the scallops appetizer (always a must) and chicken cordon bleu; I had the clear mushroom soup and the double cut lamb chops and shared a peaches & cream bread pudding with the girl. Food was perfect. My only complaint this time is that even though the main dining room was almost empty, we sat for at least 15 minutes without water or menus or acknowledgment of our presence. There was a large group in the back room, so maybe that is what kept our waiter's attention.
6/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Last few visits to Limestone have been very good, as compared to a few years ago. Both had the mixed grill special, which included an excellent grilled romaine Caesar salad and modest desert. Service was attentive but not annoying. Recommend you give it a try if you haven't been there in the last year or so.

Out of the way find!!
Recommended by the concierge at the Marriott Louisville East, when we pulled into the parking lot of this out of the way, quiet little strip center, we had our doubts. But they were instantly quieted the second we stepped foot into this marvelous, top notch restaurant, absolutely nothing like we expected. The service was 2nd to none, the food was outstanding, and the ambiance matched! It's a shame we were only visitors to the Louisville area, because if we were locals, we'd be going back to Limestone over and over again! People of Louisville, you are so lucky to have this fabulous restaurant - enjoy!!

Great dining experience
Limestone is a great restaurant. My wife and I had a wonderful dining experience. We dined there twice before. We will go again.

Enjoyed the "deconstructed" lobster dinner. Lobster Bisque was excellent with ample pieces of lobster. Main course accompanied by beans, mashed potatos and was very ample.
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Took some business partners and loved it. It's the perfect place for lunch especially in groups. The food was excellent and it was a true value for what you get.
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
love the lobster special menu. came back a second time in August ot enjoy it!

Two of us enjoyed the chicken
Two of us enjoyed the chicken cordon bleu, another liked his burger, and the other 2 had the filet 3 course special and a salad. I also had the tomato salad which was very good too. Service & food was wonderful. Very nice celebration dinner.

This is a good place to go for special occasions or with a group. It was not noisy so you could talk with friends.

Went for the prix fixe 10th anniversary special - tremendous value for $28 per person. Beef tenderloin and grilled sea bass both were perfect, and baked Alaska was terrific. Good service - attentive but not overbearing.

Feed Me Chef
This is our second time going to Limestone and once again it did not dissappoint. This time we both got the 5 course Feed Me Chef with wine pairing and it was phenomenal. We both received different dishes each time and therefore got to sample many of the restaurant's excellent food. Highly recommend for food, atmosphere, and experience.
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Limestone is excellent
The food is outstanding and the service attentive. It was quiet when we arrived but beginning to get busier when we left around 8. They have a huge wine list! We enjoyed our meal.

Great Dining Experience
My husband and I were celebrating our 41st wedding anniversary and wanted to go some place special--Limestone was the place for us. We thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere--great jazz music for dining. We both had the salmon which was fantastic. A complimentary glass of champagne was provided to celebrate our anniversary which we didn't expect. We had a little glitch in our dessert order so we had to wait on one dessert which was not a big deal as we were in no hurry to leave the restaurant. However, I was given a glass of "ice wine" due to the wait, which was also exceptional. The staff was excellent and very gracious. We definitely will choose Limestone for our next special occasion. But in the meantime, we will try lunch soon!

Bourbon Smoked Rib Eye
Smoked, then cut into steaks and finished sautéed, roast garlic demi and onion crisps, Chef’s vegetables - awesome dish!
11/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
We had a wonderful lunch. Elizabeth was our waitress and she did an outstanding job. The chef was there to meet and greet as well as deliver his delicious creations to tables. This restaurant is back on top and doing well. My cobb salad was very good.

Great food, atmosphere & service
Limestone has great atmosphere, very good food and excellent service. Their bar offers several nice conversation areas equipped with a couple of TVs in case you want to keep an eye on one of your favorite teams. You can find the owner and former local celebrity chef, Jim Gerhardt, filling water glasses or delivering meals to ensure prompt quality service. I would definitely recommend Limestone for a great dining experience.

Hard to find
This restaurant is tucked away and hard to find but worth the trip. Different presentations of Southern dishes. Delightful ambience, quiet and very attentive staff. The bar is well appointed and welcoming also. Recommend it for a quiet, inexpensive, delightful dinner.
