Service was great, very friendly and attentive. The food was good, it was served to us on the cold side. So had it been hot, I’m sure it would be delicious. Overall, very charming spot.

Excellent service from the time we walked in. Sarah was attentive, had a good knowledge of the menu, and was able to work out a special drink request.

The food was outstanding. Not really any other way to put it. One of us had scallops, another had salmon and I had the wild boar/bacon meatballs. All were cooked wood fired (I believe) and perfect.

Vanilla creme brulee was good, not great. Sugar was not completely crystallized throughout. Still good.

Strawberry cheesecake was a hit. So was the coffee, pressed at the table.

We dined early for the Highlands. About 6. By 7:30 it was packed, but not too noisy.

We will definitely return.

 (Louisville)·Dined on December 3, 2017

Overall I thought our experience at La Chasse was outstanding. We were celebrating our anniversary and the food, the service and the attention to detail was excellent. I had tried to make a reservation for Thanksgiving Evening, was told they were open and then received a call back to say they were not. The manager went out of his way to express his regrets for the mix up and offer to make a reservation on another date. I called back several days later and made the reservation for the date we choose.
My only complaint was that the noise level was so loud that we found we were shouting at each other across the table. I know they want vibe, but this was over the top. Perhaps some sound buffering would be helpful?

We had 5:30 reservations so we could go to Bardstown Rd. Aglow. Admittedly, it was a busy night for the restaurant, but not so much at that 5:30. Steven was our waiter. He told us the drink special was in part, to help a charity called Apron, but all he could tell us about that, was it helps restaurant workers. He should have been a little more knowledgeable, for sure. The drinks were good though and I hope the money did go for a good cause.
Two of us ordered the butternut squash soup, the special soup of the day. If Steven told us it was very spicy, we both missed it and as a result, had to turn our bowls in with maybe 1/4 eaten. I ordered the salad special, but by the time it was delivered had forgotten what was supposed to be on it. As it was, it was a nothing salad. A few sliced carrots, some bacon that was inedible (and to me, bacon is the perfect food) and little else that I can remember. Later, I remembered, hey, where was that special Parmesean that was supposed to be "a little saltier and nuttier than usual?" Bottom line, if I got the salad special, they forgot part of it, but it certainly was not special in my estimation.
The drinks were another problem. My friend ordered a cosmo. It was fine. She ordered another one and waited, and waited, and waited. Finally, she asked Steven as he was zooming by us, where the cosmo was, that she had ordered a long time ago. He said, "No. It is being made right now." No?? She took it that he was telling her she hadn't ordered it a long time ago. And some minutes later, it appeared. Words can mean so much. (As can prompt alcohol delivery.)
My friend's scallops were perhaps the best either of us had ever had. Unbelievably tender; melt in your mouth! My husband's salmon was very good too.
The other waiters were very helpful, delivering food and drink and washing out my charity drink mugs so I could take them with us.

Everything was wonderful! From the warm greeting the minute we walked in the door to dessert. Everyone loved their cocktails and the recommended wine was perfectly paired. I will be craving that scallop dish all winter! Really looking forward to our next visit.
Thank you Isaac, Andrew, Mike, Tina and Bobo!

We had a business dinner on Wednesday night and La Chasse knocked it out of the park. We dined early (6PM), so noise was not a factor as I have seen in some reviews. The live, acoustic guitar player put the experience over the top and our server, Mike, was impeccable. We will return with additional business partners when in Louisville.

As a frequent diner at La Chasse, I can never say enough about the dining there! The atmosphere is warm and inviting! The menu offers an incredible array of choices to tempt any pallet! The selections from the bar are not only plentiful but also creative! The service staff is spot on and professional in their duties! My only issue is the noise level, which tends to creep up during the course of the evening as the place fills up!

La Chasse also holds regular Wine Dinners that among some of the best in town! Owner and lead Barman Isaac Fox along with Chef Andrew Welenken always pull out all the stops on these wonderful events!

In my opinion, La Chasse is the closest thing to an intimate bistro setting that Louisville has! It's a real gem!

Far too loud — add some sound deadening material to the concrete box. Seated right next to kitchen door that flapped back and forth the entire time we were there. Did not enjoy listening to wait staff complain/swear. Food was very good. Ambiance was not.

We had heard that La Chasse was one of, if not the, finest French restaurants in Louisville. Having visited on 11/18/2017 we can now confirm. The food was exceptional. Almost all of the menu was able to be prepared gluten free! And, unlike many fine dining experiences, the atmosphere was not stuffy. We visit Louisville frequently and La Chasse will now be on our regular rotation.

Food was excellent. Server knew we had a play to attend, but was very slow getting us our check. The noise level was very high as a large group of younger people arrived. It got to the point where we were not able to even talk to each other.
For old people, I would recommend arriving early (like we did due to the play) to avoid the restuarant when very busy. It is small with brick walls. Noise is an issue

Awesome restaurant except the noise level. It would rate 5 stars if the owners could some how dampen the noise perhaps by using some sort of fabric or something so you don't have to scream at the person across the table from you.

 (Louisville)·Dined on October 21, 2017

We went to La Chasse as it was described as French/Spanish fusion. We found the dishes to be more upscale Southern in presentation and flavor.
We ordered a the Sweetbreads and Lobster Cake appetizers. The sweetbreads were pulled apart, breaded and fried served with hot sauce. The hot sauce overpowered any flavor coming from breading or sweetbreads. The Lobster cake was nicely presented on a bed of mashed potatoes with a sauce like spicy pimento cheese. It was very tasty.
We split the salad special and KY Fried Rabbit entree. The rabbit was breaded and cooked to perfection. It came on a bed of cheese grits with braised chard.
We inquired about the cheese included on charcuterie plate , the day's cheeses were Pepper Jack, Cheddar and Dragon-something.
Ordered lemon cake for dessert, it was okay. The french press coffee...it was some of the best coffee I've tasted in quite awhile. We purchased a bottle of wine and had 4 bottles of sparkling water. All said including 20% tip, $200. Our server Mike was exceptional.
It was a very good meal though not what we had in mind when we expected French.

With a parking area behind the restaurant, it was easy to find a close spot. Low light and soft live music greated us with a cozy, intimate atmosphere. The food was rich and the flavors, expertly blended. I highly recommend the Wild Boar Meatballs! The lemon pound cake was the perfect light end to a wonderful experience. Our servers gave us time and were happy to answer any questions we had. My wife and I enjoyed the evening, immensely! We will be visiting again for special occasion.
