We can count on the team at 1860 to provide us a thoroughly enjoyable, low-key and enjoyable dinner experience. The menu is a perfect size and the food is outstanding.

1860 did it again. Always our go to spot. We were pleased to have it our valentines dinner. We were greeted at the door by our all time favorite server Hannah. She has been promoted- well deserved. Erika took care of us and was excellent. A great bottle of wine, some of the lobster hush puppies, the salmon, a filet and the Brussel sprout rounded out an excellent visit to 1860. Highly recommended

Best spot in town for a nice date!! Food is spectacular and the place is in a beautiful historic home. Monday’s have half off select bottles of wine which is a huge incentive!!

Lovely decor. Nice menu selection. The food was delicious. Salads and sides were shareable.

What took this from being perfect was the noise. We were seated in the back room. Two large groups were seated there after us and we couldn’t have a conversation it was so loud. Ruined the meal.
Ask to be seated in the front room.

My husband and I had an amazing experience at Bistro 1860. Our waitress, Lauren, was wonderful and I know we will always request to be in her section from now on. We will definitely repeat the experience. The food was phenomenal and the experience was unforgettable. Will recommend to others.

The food and service was incredible! Julio was our waiter. Most of the food selections offered small and medium portions. The flavor blew our taste buds away!

Everything was really good except I asked for us to be seated in the room with the fireplace. Turns out all rooms had fireplaces, but ours was the only room that it wasn't lit, which is why I asked for the fireplace- for ambiance.

Everything we had was exceptional. I liked the structure of the menu - it allows you to order smaller versions of dishes to try more options. My wife and I had the lobster hush puppy, seared diver scallops, duck confit strudel, the rack of lamb and the surf and turf special (lobster tail and filet). Every dish was outstanding and the bourbon list was stellar (which is expected in Louisville). Great experience!

This place is always on our short list of places to eat in Louisville for a special dinner. Being able to order small plates of many different dishes is so much fun! We're especially fond of the lamb tartare, escargot, Brussels sprouts, mussels, rack of lamb, salads, and all of the dessert selections. Also, top notch chef and staff as well!
