ordered scallops, which were great. ordered burgoo as appetizer. it was fantastic. be sure and order an appetizer. the entrees won't fill you up.

arrived at 630pm. by 715 my wife and i had to shout to be heard. just a sheer wall of noise from then on. holy moses! bring your cell. better off texting back and forth. i'm serious.

excellent service. comfortable place...not too hot or cold, of course weather was perfect that night.

yeh, i'd go back, but would book earliest possible table if you want any hope of a conversation.

Met friends for my birthday. Issac Fox was awesome and our service was top notch as usual! Love the wine selection and the filet was delicious!

Love this place!

Every time I've been to La Chasse I've been impressed. The atmosphere and food quality is like being at a neighborhood French Bistro. Excellent pan seared fois gras is rare to get in an American Midwest city. It's always a part of my ordering and NEVER fails to make me feel I'm enjoying it in France with a local wine (this time a great cab from Languedoc! )With Montpellier a Louisville sister city, I felt the connectivity with my Friday PM meal!

The food was simply excellent. We began with the octopus and foie gras - both amazing. I had the swordfish special on a bed of pesto orzo which was outstanding, and my friend had the rabbit, which he was very happy with. We also ordered a side order of the pimento cheese grits, which were very rich but simply delicious. I could have eaten a whole bowl and called it a night, but there were so many other good things to sample. Our server was a delight, attentive but not intrusive. An altogether satisfying experience, and while not inexpensive, I felt like we got a lot of value for the price.

We were tourists and found this place thru reviews. The good reviews were right. We had the octopus as an appetizer, perfectly cooked. Friend had scallops and thought they were equal with the "best ones since Stratosphere". I had the chicken, wonderfully seasoned. Drinks were spot on. Dessert was the chef's special torte. Very good.

I had high hopes - but the experience wasn't up to it.
The chicken cassoulet was neither sophisticated nor comforting - and at least one of these attributes was required. It tastes mostly of spicy mayonnaise, and I expected the chicken to be fall-of-bone tender, which it wasn't.
The deconstructed key lime pie was low on acidity and heavy on sweet (although that might be my personal preference). The puff pastry was not flaky or fresh.
Also, despite the restaurant being empty I was stuck at the worst table - with a view of a wall.
On the whole I applaud the ambition - but hope the experience will improve. (The only reason I took the time to write this.)

We found the expectation of French/Spanish cuisine intriguing and were excited to partake while celebrating a special occasion. The food did not disappoint, until dessert. My husband thoroughly enjoyed Escargot Rockefeller and I ate every bit of my Charred Octopus. We shared the delicious salad special of the evening with the lardons, grapes and the creamiest cheese and we were happy with our choice. We opted to share the entrée special of Veal Chop with potatoes, mushrooms and asparagus. Outstanding! After such a sumptuous meal, the Chocolate-Hazelnut Ice Cream Sandwich was such a disappointment. The triple chocolate brownie was dry, hard and tasteless and nothing that accompanied it redeemed it. We anticipated so much better. The wait staff was absolutely excellent! We can not praise the service we received high enough. The choices of Artisan Cocktails was superior. Can't wait to try more! BUT if you are looking for an intimate dining experience, this is not the place. The noise level was terrible. We had to ask our waiter to repeat some offerings. We watched another waiter crouch down to table height to recite the menu to a nearby "30 something" couple who couldn't hear what was being said. Several couples surrounding us were holding hands across the table, but had to shout at each other! Our conversation was limited because we could not hear each other and were frustrated at having to raise our voices. We will definitely go back to try more of the superb fare, but will try an early reservation on a week day and see if we are able to talk to each other as we savor the food.

La Chasse is a complete and total fine dining experience in such a comfortable setting,. With owner, Issac overseeing the bar and the front of the house and Executive Chef Tina Dyer at the helm in the kitchen you will be transported into an evening that is truly as good as it gets. Chef Dyer’s take on French cuisine is absolutely second to none and have Mr. Fox pair that food with his choices of wine from his world class list and you will think you are dining in Paris. All of this at such reasonable prices makes this Bardstown Road hidden gem a Five Star dining destination in every category.

The food and service are very good, but the noise level is way too much. There was a party there that night and they must have been friends with the chef and staff because they were obnoxious and there was a lady that kept going up to the window where the chefs are talking. So, the service was good, but slow. The staff let that table get a little out of hand with the noise. We probably won't be back.

Excellent service and very good food marred only by a lack of air conditioning (the underperforming unit informs you of it’s struggle by dripping on you on the way in & out). Short rib entree, mussels of the day, & the sweetbreads were all great while the fried green tomatoes were just a carrier for the overwhelming balsamic drizzled on them.
Will definitely go back when cooler weather permits!

I have dined at La Chasse many times and have never been disappointed. I brought a couple of friends this time and they were very pleased with their meal. Two of us elected to go with the grouper special and it was simply amazing. Light and well balanced made this a great dish. Our table also ordered the pork chop and it was just as delightful. And....we were lucky enough to be able to try a new ice cream on this night - popcorn ice cream with salted caramel. I'm not sure how they developed this flavor but it was unbelievable. I hope they continue this on the menu!

Went for our anniversary - 1st time there. Will definitely be back. Food was great, didn’t leave a crumb behind. I had Caesar salad followed by scallops. Husband had Bibb salad followed by filet. We shared strawberry shortcake for dessert. One of the best meals I’ve had in Louisville.
