loved this restaurant. took
loved this restaurant. took my girlfriend for her birthday, she remarked at how the room was very grand with the large curtains and bar mirror. lamb shank was perfect, the lioness is a next-level drink for any bar to be jealous of. never thought i'd say it, but the plate of deviled eggs was my favorite. who knew that could even happen?

It was our first time in the restaurant and we were most pleased with the experience, especially with the service and the food. The overall atmosphere was a bit noisier than we would have preferred but we will keep that in mind the next time we consider dining there again. The very warm and engaging approach of the waiter impressed us very much.

Old fashioned drinker? Come here!
Just a fantastic restaurant, plain and simple. Menu is very eclectic, yet simple. The bar scene is amazing as are the cocktails. For bourbon drinkers, it has one of the best old fashioneds in Louisville.

Beignets for dessert need some work. Too heavy and doughy.
Best scallops and salmon I've ever had!

We celebrated our 45 wedding anniversary in a five ***** restaurant. Service was fast and non-intrusive. Recommend if you want a high quality dinning experience.

Pre Theatre Experience
Needed a new place to go before the theatre and St. Charles Exchange was perfect. Having been ther a few times prior I expected it to be very good and they didn't disappoint. Food and service were great and add to that prohibition cocktails and it makes for a great time.

It was mine and my wife's first time to this establishment. When we walked in we were very taken with the bar area, it jumps out at you. Not just the size, but something very unique, where you would expect to find a speakeasy from many years ago. Very warm and inviting atmosphere to enjoy a drink with friends. One aspect I would discreetly suggest is that it felt like the music level got a little too loud too early. Usually the 6-9 crowd is easing in to be able to unwind and talk about the week, the day, things of interest within their group. If the music must be played that soon, my suggestion is to keep it a little less audible and play some very light tunes for the guests until the "late-nighters" start coming in.

Signature Old Fashion cocktail
We met friends for dinner and had a great meal at St Charles. Specialty cocktails were a hit as were the entrees. Strawberry shortcake dessert looked better than it was. It is pricey but over all enjoyed our dinner and the cool bar and will likely return .

Favorite New Place in Town!
St Charles X is our favorite of the new places in Louisville. Our restaurant scene has exploded, but this is one place to not miss. Great cocktails, best burger in town, very innovative and delicious food. I loved the Tempura Eggplant dish. We are devoted foodies and we keep coming back. Dean was a great server.

Our first visit. I'm not typically a downtown person. Great décor. Quite impressive furnishings, workmanship, and overall design. Reasonably priced. Food excellent. Fun bar. Service attentive. A notch above other typical area restaurants. I would highly recommend to locals and for those visiting Louisville for the first time.

We where pleasantly surprised when we walked into St Charles Exchange. The Resturant was in a beautifully restored old building.The food was delicious and the service very hospitable and welcoming
"ST. CHARLES EXCHANGE HAS EMBRACED THE HISTORY OF THE BUILDING AND CREATED A CASUALLY ELEGANT ENVIRONMENT REMINISCENCE OF A 1900’S HOTEL LOBBY BAR......THE EARLY 1900′S HOTEL STYLE ATMOSPHERE IS COUPLED WITH GENUINE HOSPITALITY, CREATING A DINING EXPERIENCE UNLIKE ANYTHING YOU’VE HAD BEFORE IN THE DERBY CITY!" This is from their website. My question is why play disco/ hip hop music rather than music of the Turn of the Century. It was very offsetting. I hope next time we visit, the music will be more in keeping with the atmosphere of the restaurant

I had contacted St. Charles Exchange about doing something special for my husband's birthday. They were very accommodating. Planned a special tasting menu. It was delicious!!! Would highly recommend!

Amazing atmosphere and fantastic bar scene...feels like we've been transported to New Orleans or Philly!

Staff Very Accommodating
We had two children in our group. As the restaurant does not have a children's menu, our server had met with the chef prior to our arrival to discuss entrees they could create to offer as entrée choices for our two young diners. This was greatly appreciated and demonstrated the personal attention we received throughout the meal.

Great food and outdoor dining
This was my second time to St. Charles Exchange. The first time was so good I wanted to see if they could do it again, and they did. Fabulous food. Ask to sit outside and you will go one level down and sit below street level among wall vines and brick pavers. Other downtown restaurants have you sit street side looking at traffic, so this is much better than any other in town. The service was great and the waiter was very good. I highly recommend.

We had to dine rather early to make another engagement so I'm not sure what the noise level would be when its packed but we had a wonderful time. The food was top notch and the service was spot on. The decor is really cool too and I would definitely enjoy the bar if I lived there. The gnocchi was melt in your mouth amazing! Its definitely pricey but I found it worth it.

This was my fourth visit to St. Charles Exchange. The food and signature cocktails have been consistently great, perhaps moreso than anywhere else I've been. The service has been nearly equal to it, and of course it is a beautiful apace.

My second visit and I'm hooked. The food is excellent. Very gourmet and unique. I had the gnocchi and my husband had the salmon. It was light snd flavorful. The salmon fresh and cooked to perfecto. The date wrapped bacon appetizer is a must try. Sweet and sumptuous. The restaurant has character and the decor is perfect.

This was a beautiful building with an impressive entrance and seating area. The atmosphere was rich and old world with a contemporary flair. The service impeccable, as obviously there is a good reason to be proud. The food was unique and delicious...sure to impress even the most critical of foodies! The bar area is also worth mentioning as it's large and lively with plenty of seating and a top shelf liquor collection. There is also a lounge seating section just alongside the bar for those wanting to sip cocktails in a more relaxing manner. This restaurant is not to be missed!

A great find...
Wish I would have heard of St Charles Exchange earlier. Ran accross it in a Louisville dining magazine. Split the Elvis on Horseback, Kentucky Onion Soup, and Burger with my wife. Was very good. Service was execellent. North Coast Pilsner was a good beer as well. Would had loved to have a few options of beer on tap but that is not a show stopper. Will be back soon to see if the second visit is as good as the first.
