St. Charles Exchange
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.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMSignature Old Fashion cocktailWe 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 .6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMDinner ExperienceIt 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.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMPre Theatre ExperienceNeeded 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.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMElegant EveningWe celebrated our 45 wedding anniversary in a five ***** restaurant.

Our entrees were surf/turf (strip and scallops) and salmon. Both were excellent. The She-Crab bisque was good but not served warm; I sent it back and what returned was only slightly better. I had dined there for lunch two days earlier and enjoyed it equally. Make sure to try the deviled egg sampler plate!3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was our first time in theIt 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.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMloved this restaurant. tookloved 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?3/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food.

Excellent service.3/8/2013 12:00:00 AMSt Charles Exchange is earningSt Charles Exchange is earning well deserved rave reviews in a city loaded with great locally owned and operated restaurant choices.
A local staff using manly local products producing wonderful food, as well as totally handcrafted drinks and beers coupled with a service staff that is off the charts make for not only a wonderful dining experience, but allow for an evening of casual sophistication, in a historic building that has been restored to it's pristine state. From top to bottom the St. Charles Exchange is on top of their game and a not to be missed dining experience.3/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
