We had a 7:00 reservation, were not seated until after 8:15, didn’t receive our food until after 9:15. Never again.
Love the kitschy way you entered the "Speakeasy". The ambiance was spot on, complete with a candlelit chandelier. The food was yummy, great cocktails and good service. Will look forward to a return visit!
Great cool place for small plates, good drinks and talk.
Tori was an outstanding server. Outside dining was pleasant. Food was prepared very well. Definitely return.
Only side note: smoking was permitted at some tables, which was quite offensive. Some patrons were quite loud during our visit. Obviously, that can’t be controlled, but at this nice establishment,one would hope for more polite manners. Overall a pleasant experience.
I’m very disappointed as this as always been a favorite place for us. I’m very unhappy about the limited menu since reopening after covid. It is essentially all bar food now with no fine dining.
The dishes that are available are no longer being prepared as before and are not nearly as good (pasta primavera)
There was only 3 occupied tables during our stay and my husbands food was way undercooked and had to be sent back.
Service was very slow.
It was my 2 adult children’s birthday and the server surprised us with 2 desserts we did not order. We thought that was very nice until we realized we were charged for them.
I probably will not return until covid is over.
If things don’t improve then we will no longer be loyal customers.
Always a GREAT choice for dinner. Food is consistently excellent
Great time, comfortable atmosphere, great food and our server was awesome. Will be back!
This establishment is a Louisville gem. The service was excellent, creative menu items. A unique atmosphere, friendly, professional staff. Clearly one of the best restaurants in the city.
The fried chicken was excellent. The shrimp and grits was overly flavored.
Jack's never disappointed. The food was amazing as usual.
Food was terrific.
Very nice date night dinner with my wife. Will was exceptional as our waiter. This was our first visit and the food was delicious. We will visit again.
Great place for a date night or a group get together. Service was wonderful, they really care about their customer’s comfort and will go the extra mile to ensure satisfaction. My wife and I will definitely be visiting again and hopefully can bring more of our friends to enjoy the experience again. Thank you Eqqus team!
We loved our waitress and all of the help she gave us through our wonderful dinner!!
It was a lovely spot, a corner, well spaced, romantic.
Thank you for a great night Jack’s
Great service, good food, nice atmosphere for a date nite.
I had a great time. The drinks were superb. I will definitely come back.
We always have excellent service here and love this place!! The food is delicious!
We will be back for the couch table on the patio! Great food and server.
Great food and dining experience. Second time going there and both were very good experiences!
Food and ambiance were phenomenal. Waiter who sat us could have been a little more attentive, other than that we will definitely be back.
Wow! Black Rabbit is an awesome concept for a “speakeasy”. We had a double date and spent 3 hours there- small bites were all delicious and the cocktails - OMG fantastic. Ryan took the time to talk to us about his experience and amazing cocktail list that he created. His passion showed thru conversation and the drink itself. He was very personable, funny and talented. That’s what good service looks like folks. Highly recommend. Plus the experience of “secret doorway” is too cool! Go!
We were extremely disappointed with the food, as well as service. We will not return.
Our service was exceptional! Food was delish! We arrived a few minutes early for our reservations and they seated us immediately. We will include Equus in our dining out rotation.
We went to the Black Rabbit and before we knew it we had been there 3 hours. The place is amazing and the vibe is awesome.
Wonderful service and not crowded. Food was delicious. Can’t wait until they get other items back on their menu.
We love Jacks! The food is excellent, and the atmosphere is quiet and intimate. Service is always great.
The salmon was over spiced. The fish sandwich was average. Overpriced in my opinion.
Our server, Tori, was very attentive. We always love the fried chicken entree, & we were not disappointed tonight.
We had a wonderful dinner this past Saturday night. The service was excellent, Tory, was awesome and a pleasure to talk to!
The food was delicious! Seriously I could eat there every night it was so good.
We will definitely be back!
Excellent food, service, and atmosphere. Hidden gem!
So nice to be back to Equs!! Great as always even with all the changes. They did great job.
We had a lovely dinner. All six of us loved what we had down to the very important cocktails and wine selection. We were able to have a great conversation without having to speak loud. The service was fantastic!
We were grateful that our server found a better table where there was little noise. It made all the difference! We always enjoy our times at this restaurant. The food is good and service too. Choices are always good.
Great Service and Great Food!! Couldn't ask for anything better.
I held a business dinner here after not visiting E&J in some time. The table was nice, quiet corner, just as I'd requested. Service was good. Unfortunately the food was mediocre at best. An example was my pork chop. Fatty, odd texture and flavor. Sauce was off-putting. The French onion soup had a slab of cheese on top that wasn't melted down and just slightly browned like you'd normally have with French onion soup. My "wedge" salad was a tossed salad, and not a wedge at all. Dropped $230 and just feel it wasn't worth it.
Excellent restaurant food prepared to perfection. The only negative was hostess tried to seat us in a booth near the kitchen when there were on three families in the facility on our arrival. Ask to be moved and she was reluctant to move us so I told my wife let's go then another preferably table was located.
Service and Food were both great! We will definitely return.
We were not happy at all with the food! It started with calamari then to the duck! My duck was just pure fat and under cooked! Then ordered the sea bass which had a burnt taste to it! We spent about $100 on an awful meal we didn’t enjoy! Only thing we lived was, running in to an old customer who needed house remodeled again! So, lost $100 on an awful meal, gained $80k on a new home remodel.
But, we will not be back again. We eat out nightly at places with beautiful atmospheres as it’s our entertainment and bonding time after a long day away from each other.
Service very slow. Food is mediocre at best. Nice place just simply not worth a try.
