                                    Wonderful meal. The octopus was fork tender and the sea bass was nothing short of sublime. The hit of the evening was the bread pudding and it had no raisins. That’s a win!

                                    Simply the best restaurant in town! The food is always excellent, and the service has never disappointed. Louisville has lots of great restaurants, but we have never found another we like as much as Anoosh's.

                                    The food is interesting and very good, but the fish was overcooked. For the price, I would expect perfection!

                                    Anoosh Bistro is always wonderful. The food is beautifully prepared, artfully presented, and truly delightful. It is also very vegetarian and vegan friendly (although the lamb is divine!) The servers are knowledgeable and friendly. Consistently the best place to dine in Louisville.

                                    First experience at Anoosh Bistro, 8pm reservation seated by 8:15. Although the courses were served out of order , the food was excellent. Service was reasonably attentive. Overall was expecting a little more.

                                    Very good meal along with above average service. If only it wasn’t so expensive. $60 entree and above average drink prices makes for a dining experience that makes you think twice.

                                    Totally majestic dinner experience. Marshall took us to the table and made us feel welcomed. Our server - Louie - was the consummate professional with a great sense of humor and knowledge of the menu. He was there every time we needed anything and really did a marvelous job. Enjoyed a bottle of Pinot Grigio and the complimentary bread and special sauce is an absolute treat. I ordered the veal and it was divine. Had to take one piece home for later! Great portions. During dinner, I also noticed that other servers came by and assisted on some of the small details. Great team effort always works well. Split a banana cream pie for dessert. Anoosh stopped by to say hello and I told him how much we enjoyed the evening. We always look forward to dinner here.

                                    The service was attentive and very good. But I did think the prices were quite high. I think everything is just gone up so much and I was a bit and sticker shock. I got the special of the day and it was $55 or something like that. I thought it was really expensive

                                    Last minute dinner out, seating was easy. Small restaurant with excellent food. Black eye pea hummus was amazing. Mushroom salad was not a salad but also amazing (and I do not like. Mushrooms). I had the beef filet, cooked perfectly snd my husband had sea bass over risotto. Both dishes were really good. We will definitely be back.

                                    Several people recommended this restaurant to me when I moved back to Louisville. It was an extremely elevated dining experience. From the service to the cuisine, every course was exceptional. Very expensive and very worth it. Will definitely return!

                                    Other than having to sit by the door which made it kind of chilly the overall experience was excellent! Service was great and the food was excellent! We picked our courses which was an appetizer and an Entrée and then a predetermined trio dessert. They also, surprised us with an amuse-bouche at the beginning and a chocolate truffle to take home with us (which was amazing). The wife had the Seabass and I had the rack of lamb. We ending up sharing a bunch of bites between each other because we both were amazed by how delicious both entrées were! I’m normally not a “fish guy” but I LOVED the seabass it was like butter melting in your mouth! Honestly I had never had lamb so I wanted to see what the fuss was all about and I now know what the fuss is all about. It was so so good! All of it. Delicious!! Highly recommend this restaurant (just make sure you don’t have to sit right next to the door…

                                    Honestly, one of the best meals I've ever had. The chef is incredible, he walked around the restaurant and asked every guest about their food and experience, what a great way to just feel a part of a dining experience. We spent a lot, but we got a lot if great food, service, and will be back again and again.
