BOURBON RAW Ratings and Reviews
There was nothing bad about our experience at Bourbon Raw - it was just not great. Which was disappointing because it was for my spouse's birthday while we were in Louisville for the weekend. The cocktails were mediocre, and the food was ok (is gravy on fried chicken a Louisville thing? because it made it soggy). Our server was very nice, and it was fun to sit outside and watch the excitement of Fourth St.
while the wait staff were knowledgeable and cordial, service was quite slow. entrees took almost an hour after placing order. place was not full. good bourbon selection. we had eaten here a year ago for the first time, and that time was a great experience. This one was not.
I want to love this place because of the great location inside 4th Street Live. We sat at an outdoor table and enjoyed the people watching. Loved the vibe of the place, but the service was poor, and the food was just so-so. I love dining in 4th Street Live area of downtown Louisville, but would probably not go here again. Disappointed in the overall experience.
Ordered a Mimosa and a Bloody Mary and they were $10 each. The mimosa wasn't worth $5. The fried fish platter on the lunch menu was just so so, I've had better. Our waiter was nice and on top of things so I would give him a 5. We really thought they had brunch on Saturday and that was the main reason that we went but once we arrived and found out it was only on Sunday we decided to give it a try. Wish we had tried somewhere else though
Very disappointed. Went there for Louisville Burger Week. First time going I was told they were not serving the burger until 4pm that day. So, I was like ok. Decided to stay for brunch. Bad decision. Ordered a very simple dish, biscuits and gravy and 2 eggs over easy. Gravy was cold. Eggs were scrambled. I specifically asked if they were serving a certain number of burgers each day, and was told no, they were making burgers when ordered. So I made reservations for 6:30 that evening, 2 1/2 hours after they started offering the burger. When we got there, they were not busy. So I'm thinking this is perfect. When out server come to our table and asked what we'd like everyone at the table said the burger. And we were told they were out of the burger. Very very disappointing. Most likely will not go back.
We went to Bourbon Raw for Father's Day per my dad's request. It eas,easy to get to and our waiter Bobby was very attentive and knowledgeable. I got the smoked ribs and they were okay. I was looking forward to getting the short ribs when our waiter came back and said they were out and would not be ready for another 2 hours. That was disappointing especially for being my first time there. I did enjoy my drink and their selection of bourbon was phenomenal. Overall there was nothing particularly bad, but nothing particularly good either.
There were only 2 tables sat when I got in - told them I had a res and wanted to sit at the bar. They didn't check me in, so I didn't get credit. Waited 25 minutes for anyone to come up - ordered a drink and food ... Got neither (and didn't see the bartender again) for 35 more minutes. He came back, forgot about me (with 8 people in the whole place) so I walked out. An hour of my day off wasted.
Reservation 5:30. First dinner choice 30-40 minute wait (kitchen forgot to put ribs on). Going to theater so can't wait. Second choice fried chicken. Chicken arrived smothered in gravy so crispy chicken soggy. No gravy on mashed potatoes & they were cold-not even room temp! Manager tried very hard to amend for problems so gave free dessert. Had "Turtle" cheesecake described as chocolate & carmel cheesecake w/nuts (visions of Cheesecake Factory-YUM). It was nothing more than plain cheesecake with chocolate & Carmel sauce drizzled on top. Meal VERY disappointing. On up side, other meal (seafood) good & staff really did try to address problem.
This was supoosed to be a Mother's day brunch. It turned out to be a horrible experience. We were seated for about 30 minutes when our server advised us that they were out of sausage and eggs. We asked how was this possible for brunch? The server informed us that the manager went to CVS to purchase more eggs. We asked to speak with the manager and he was very apologetic for the mishap. He offered to comp our entire meal. We then waited for another forty five minute for food that came out cold, over cooked omelets and tasteless! Needless to say this wasn't a happy Mother's day!
I made reservations at Bourbon RAW at 4th Street Live for noon on Mother's Day 2017. After waiting 15 minutes before any server even approached our table we finally got our drinks. We ordered our meal but after waiting an hour and a half to be served, we ended up walking out. Think twice before going to this place.
We went for the Easter brunch. We found the menu online and made reservations. The online menu advertised $15 pitchers of Bloody Mary's and Mimosas, which weren't on the menu when we arrived. Also $1 oysters were advertised online for the Easter brunch. They had NO oysters at all, and there was only one other table with people, so they didn't sell out that morning. The potatoes used in the breakfast hash were old and rubbery and the over easy eggs couldn't be cut with a fork because they were so overcooked. Last but not least, the service was almost non-existent. We're from out of town and will never return to the Bourbon Raw when we return to Louisville.
We had reservations for 5 for my daughters birthday, Easter Sunday. The brunch menu was awesome. Service was quick and pleasant. Our food was done timely and everyone was very pleased, satisfied, and full. The menu Is very reasonably priced. We will definitely be back for brunch again.
First, the service was fantastic. No complaints on that front. I had the catfish and ribs and my husband the fried pork and waffles. First, waffles need to be crunchy. Second, at $26 give us real maple syrup. The catfish was also soggy for a fried fish. It was underwhelming. Not worth what we paid.
Server was rude, didn't even do anything for my husbands Birthday per my request, bartender/server substituted cheaper bourbon in our flight without telling us and then didn't know it was cheaper when we asked for money off or one of the same value, food was ok... not worth the money. Worst meal/experience of the entire weekend trip.
Really enjoyed the dining experience and the incredible selection of top quality bourbons and very very reasonable prices.
Food quality was excellent albeit pricey.
I will definitely go back and recommend to others who want A great dining experience conveniently located downtown Louisville.
This was our first time dining here. It was a great experience that started with the super friendly host, bartender (she recommended several great bourbons) and ended with our amazing wait staff, Ricki. Great food, ambiance, service. Will definitely dine here again.
