RIVUE Restaurant and Lounge
Great dinning experienceWent to the Rivue for my husband's birthday celebration, and we had a great time. Service was great from beginning to end, amazing food, wine, music. The view was beautiful over the river and downtown Louisville. Dessert was delicious and the complimentary sweets after dinner were the perfect touch to end up the night.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMRivue.... A Louisville gem!For an absolutely first class fine dining experience, Rivue offers it all. My lady and I were celebrating her birthday and were treated as celebrity by the staff at Rivue. The atmosphere was romantic , the service impeccable , and the dining was beyond delicious . The Rivue restaurant and lounge exudes class from the time you step off the elevator at the top of the nostalgic Galt house. The staff was as gracious and accomadating with what was a menu of taste , texture, and delight.The best dining experience and celebration my lady and I have ever experienced in Louisville. A true gem, Rivue will always be our first recommendation to friends and family for the ultimate dining experience, five star plus... *****+5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGraduation/Anniversary CelebrationThis was my 4th visit to The Rivue. The location and view are outstanding, the food is good and the service is exceptional. We have always been very satisfied with the service, food and price. This last sitting on May 10, 2013, we had a party of 7. One of the seven meals, the Cog au Vin, was returned to the kitchen. This was the first time my father ever returned a meal. The chicken was very dry (although all dark meat was requested) and there was no sauce. Every other time Cog au Vin has been my father's choice for a meal, all over the world, it comes with a sauce. This version has no sauce. Regardless, the server brought him something else and we were not charged for this one meal. I will return another time.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMRepeat PerformanceGreat experience with out of town friends in the Revolving part of The Rivue. Lots of special touches & the views are fabulous.

I loved cooking my own buffalo on the salt rock! Fun!5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMService was excellent, butService was excellent, but food choices limited. The pork loin was moist and succulent, but the chicken and fish were dry. Good salad choices; smoked salmon would be a good addition. Dessert was plentiful with a great apple cobbler.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have lived in LouisvilleWe have lived in Louisville for 10 years and have never tried Rivue. We finally had the opportunity to this past weekend with some friends. The revolving restaurant sounded kind of kitschy but it was actually quite nice. The food was very good and our waiter was very warm and friendly. The actual time from being seated to leaving the restaurant was about 3 and a half hours. A bit too long and we were ready to go by the time they rolled the "complimentary candy cart" our way. Overall, it was a great experience and I would not hesitate to go back...I'd just make sure that we set aside enough time for the evening.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat food, pricey but overgreat food, pricey but over all great. Will recommend for any special romantic occasion4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMTop of the world!Fantastic service and food!

A very good restarurant. Top notch waiter.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding eveningMy wife and I had one of the best restaurant experiences we have ever had at the Rivue. Our server Amir was OUTSTANDING in every way. The views were incredible, food delicious and everyone on the staff were extremely courteous. I would highly recommend to all wanting to have a nice romantic dinner with your significant other or a nice dinner with friends.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWent there for our 29th AnniversaryWent there for our 29th Anniversary, food & service was great. The only problem was that we were seated next to a family of 4 with 2 small children who were loud and the parents let them run all around. Not the restaurants fault but the fault of the parents. We were there for a romantic evening and it kind of got ruined by the kids. The parents should have handled their children. We have kids and grandkids and there is time and place for playing, its not at a nice restaurant.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMService was great until weService was great until we asked for the check. It took nearly 30 minutes from the time we asked to get the check. This was excessive. My wife and I had to really scramble to make it to our movie because of this. Check issue asside we had great service from the waiters attending us during our brunch!4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMThe same goes for EVERY restaurant:The same goes for EVERY restaurant: Either people start leaving the kids at home with sitters OR restaurants start providing no kid zones just like non smoking areas. There is nothing worse than dressing up for a special occasion, going to a a nice place and dropping that kind of money just to have it ruined by screaming kids running around like apes. Parents ARE responsible for their children's behavior and restaurant owners ARE responsible to their diners to provide the ambiance they advertise.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMThe atmosphere and the viewsThe atmosphere and the views are outstanding. Service was great very prompt and attentive. Food was just good, not great. Typical buffet food. Had been in the chafers so it was a little overdone and dry but well flavored and interesting.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food, the service andThe food, the service and the atmosphere made for a memorable evening. Enjoyed the experience immensely.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had seen mostly positiveWe had seen mostly positive reviews but a few stating it was overpriced and not that good. We almost didn't go because of that. However, we were visiting Louisville for the first time and decided to go for the experience. We were very glad we did. We both had fish, which was excellent. It happened to be 1/2 price night for bottles of wine, which was a bonus. Service was attentive without being intrusive. We will visit again next time we are in town.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMMe and my wife celebratedMe and my wife celebrated our 20th anniversary there and had a lovely time and woupd recommended this to restaurant to anyone looking for a special dinner with that special someone.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding food and service.Outstanding food and service.
