We enjoyed the atmosphere and the food was delicious. Prices are a little high, but they serve you a decent amount of food for the entree, not a small “artistic” sized serving. We were celebrating an anniversary and they did not do anything extra or special for us as some other restaurants have done in the past. It wasn’t expected, but that is always a nice extra gesture when it happens. We would definitely return to eat here again.

The noise level was not a product of loud music - unfortunately now standard in most restaurants. It was a group of excessively loud women who drowned out the conversations of others. Otherwise it is a perfectly wonderful place to eat. Great food with a nice, usually quiet, ambiance.

This may have been our most delightful meal ever. The food was PERFECT! Even the leftovers were remarkable. Jesse is one in a million for service and care. A special night with special people.

Typically I visit for lunch but we decided to have a small Birthday Dinner there. The resturant seemed like they were short on staff that night or maybe they just staff less at night. Nevertheless, service was slow and the food was drowning in sauces. The salads were completely dripping in dressing. I forgot to order it on the side but ordering the Heirloom Tomato Salad who would have thought that would have happened. The trout, abet very tasty, was covered in butter and possibly oil. It was to be lightly sautéed and was swimming. It is difficult to eat healthy these days. I would think they would offer some lighter fare. My husband had the pasta the was dripping in oil. My son had the Pork Chop which he was pleased with. The Charcuterie board was also a wonderful surprise. I asked for the names of the cheeses but the waitress never returned with them.

Lovely private room was perfect for my friends’ group. The only drawback was very slow service. It seemed that the restaurant was understaffed at busy lunch time.

Food was great and our clients had a lovely time.
Only complaint is we wish the chicken salad portion was slightly larger.

Great for a special night out. The menu is limited but everything is very fresh and very well prepared, with good variety. Service is excellent. Quiet, cozy dining rooms make you feel almost like you are in your own home.

We were extremely happy with all aspects of this restaurant: ambiance, service, food, etc. I had the filet and my wife had the pork chop. Both were outstanding. Its clear why they are still in business all these years. It is a little hard to find but it worth the effort.

Meet a friend who I’ve not seen in awhile & we were given a nice table by a window facing the outdoor dining area ( way to hot to sit outside ). I had their BLT which is fabulous, steps above traditional BLT’s, friend had 🥗, both were great! Nice wine list & craft cocktails 🍸. I’ve not dined for dinner yet but have no doubt it would be wonderful !

I took my mother-in-law here for lunch to celebrate her birthday. The food was fabulous. I had planned to order the salmon, but when I saw the Idaho trout being served to the table next us, I changed my mind. It was absolutely delicious! This is one of our favorite Louisville restaurants for a quiet, elegant and tasty dining experience.

I realize the web site menus are not always accurate and are subject to Chang but the four of us had each picked a different entre we wanted to try. None of these options were available. Actually nothing on the menu excited me . We did have good service and the food was tasty and well presented but not what we expected.

We went to celebrate a friend’s birthday & enjoyed the evening together. I split a fish dish with asparagus & potatoes & we shared a bottle of wine which was half price. The dessert for the birthday girl was a type of chocolate mousse. Everything was very nice.

We dined at 211 Clover with another couple on Mothers' Day. The ambience was great-- we could converse without having to put up with ambient noise. The food was great, and our server was terrific. We have resolved to dine there more often, even though it is somewhat distant from our home. We have dined there multiple times, and highly recommend it.

I brought my 5 and 2 year old. I didn’t know this wasn’t a children friendly establishment. No kids menu and the waiter told me he would have to fetch the high chair from the basement. Food was ok. Left my husband wanting more food after we left.

Food was very good and was not as over-priced as I thought it might be. However, the waiter we had was pretty rude and not very welcoming. I would probably go back in the future, but would hope for a different server.

Service was spotty. Had to ask twice to get butter, and twice for extra bread, and then later, more bread didn’t arrive.
My braised lamb shank was inedible - is was dry and tasteless, needed a sauce of some sort over the top of it.
They did take off the lamb shank and also took off my dessert.
Not nearly as good as it used to be.
