Early Valentine’s Day dinner with my husband. We had amazing cocktails. The bartender is top notch. We had the charcuterie and roasted artichoke as appetizers, both were outstanding. He had vegetable Bolognese and I had the steak as our main entrée both were cooked to perfection and the vegetable Bolognese was the best ever. Anoosh was walking throughout the restaurant making sure everyone Was satisfied at all times. It was a delightful experience.

Excellent Birthday dinner for my wife. The Halibut special was the best fish we have had.
Banana cream pie is also over the top!

A great experience for first-timers. Food was delicious, and our server and chef accommodated us with an off-the-menu entree. Mt only dig is that drink prices are very high. Regardless, Anoosh immediately became one of our Louisville favorites.

As always the food was superb. Soup, salads and entrees were all scarfed down. Snapper was the tastiest fish I have had in a long time. The bread pudding was not my favorite, however. It could have used more bourbon flavor, and the bread itself was of a more refined texture than I cared for. Service and drinks were also excellent. The price point is on the high side. But it is still our favorite place to go.

The food was superb. The service was very attentive, without being intrusive. Our server did need to speak louder..even in the very quiet surroundings of Anoosh Bistro, he was often somewhat inaudible while describing specials/desserts. Potential patrons MUST be warned....this restaurant is EXPENSIVE. Example: braised beef ravioli appetizer.....$14 for four ravioli. Delicious, true...but that's a high price for four ravioli. Other menu items are similarly expensive.

Anoosh Bistro was amazing. We were celebrating my mother-in-law’s birthday and my sister-in-law was flying in to Louisville as a surprise. The staff did so many things to make the surprise work and the evening special- the pastry chef made a large special Birthday fruit tart for dessert for the whole family to enjoy. I would highly recommend Anoosh Bistro for a special event

Anoosh Bistro is surprisingly affordable for the extremely high quality, diversity and artful presentation of dishes. The wait staff is exceedingly professional and they have the added bonus of a maiter d, Al, who circulates among the tables making sure that customers are well attended to. Anoosh Shariat, owner/executive chef, is very visible too. A very well developed wine, cocktail and bourbon list, brilliantly executed desert menu and an ambiance that is every bit the classic bistro with mediteranean flair. This is a restaurant that makes you want to be a regular.

We love this restaurant and in the past have had five star amazing shrimp and lamb dishes. In the past the service has been the best. Tonight we had reservations for six. We arrived on time and were quickly seated by a lovely hostess. The waitress was having a difficult night. She just could not get anything right at any of her tables. The people next to us complained loudly and the two tables across also complained loudly. She got our drink order incorrect but we felt so bad for her we did not complain. Half the dinner orders were not correct either and we got her to correct them. The duck dish is usually amazing but the dumpling was terrible on this occasion. My ravioli appetizer is usually really good but tonight it was not so good. The hamburgers we ordered were very good. Maybe it was just an off night after the Christmas holiday? I got the feeling the regular chef was off. The two tables across from us were complaining about the food. I am not sure what was going on the night we went but honesty this is usually an amazing restaurant with top five star service. We will go back as I am sure we just went on an off night.

Wonderful food, great atmosphere, and the staff is super friendly. Our waitress was so sweet and explained all the specials, making sure we had no dietary restrictions! Anoosh is also very attentive to his customers, making sure they enjoy their meal and experience. The food is some of the best in Louisville! Loved their bread and blue cheese dip, complementary!

When made reservation, specifically asked for a booth. When got there, greeter said because of holiday season no booths were available. YET, all the booths were empty and remained empty during the entire time.
The server we had, a woman, was to be kind, a little ditsy. She kept forgetting things, had to ask twice for numerous items.
We have eaten at Anooshes many times and love the food and usually the service. This was the first we were greatly disappointed with everything except the food.

Went here for dinner today with my mom. I ordered the lobster bisque and grilled salmon. Both dishes tasted the same: bland. The presentation was decent.

My mom ordered a vegetable root bisque and the trout. Her view was similar to that of mine: the food lacked distinct flavors and salt.

As for the seating arrangement, it felt cluttered. The tables are too close to each other. Tremendously awkward setup.

The service was good. The host was polite, friendly, and quick.

Overall, I do not plan on returning to this restaurant.
