La Chasse Ratings and Reviews
I came here to celebrate for valentine's day with my girlfriend. We walked in the door and we're immediately confused as to if we came in the wrong door. There was no hostess stand and people looked as if we came in the wrong way so we walked through the tight tables to the back entrance where there was a hostess stand, only to be told they just moved the stand to the back and to see the host at the front haha which had us walk back through the tight restaurant to the front. He said our table would be ready in a few minuyes so we sat at the bar to get a drink. Holy crap this was the biggest issue with the whole night the bartenders seemed very flustered, they were tossing shakers and dirty glasses in an overflowing sink, and it took about 10 minutes to get a drink when we were essentially the only people at the bar. When we got our drinks our table was ready, despite poor service to save the hassle I decided to close out with the bartenders to tip them which took another 10 minutes...we ordered 3 appetizers oysters, octopus, and escargot. Oysters were good but not purged so they were gritty, octopus was great although a tad burnt, and the escargot was lackluster simple garlic butter and parsley and breadcrumbs would have been better. The highlight of the night was the rabbit. Wow, just wow. It was delicious fall off the bone and very moist which is hard to do with lean meat. The grits, and rainbow chard was also very good. I would come back just for this dish alone. The waitress made it seem that what we ordered wouldn't be enough food, I'm glad I stuck to my gut because we had to take some food home.
This was our second time at La Chasse, and it has risen to my favorite restaurant in Louisville. The service is superb (I was so impressed that I even commented how amazing the table busing staff was), the cocktail list is extensive and inventive. I tried a couple seemingly unusual ones and they were well balanced and delicious. And the food is delicious. Portions were filling but not overdone. There was a potato soup with beef filet and gorgonzola which was the best soup I've tasted in my life. I had wild boar meatballs in a cream sauce over mushroom risotto. It was rich and delectable. It can get a little pricey if cocktails, apps, salads/soups, dessert, and after dinner drinks are ordered, but you definitely get what you pay for both in food quality and level of service and care.
Party of 4 had dinner reservations for a birthday celebration. Food was great! Service was a bit slow. They took drink order came back took appetizer order came back took dinner order and last came back and took desert order. Between each order there was a minimum of 10 minutes before the next order was taken. This made the dinner lengthy I think. The noise level was off the charts. It was difficult to hear the server tell us about the daily specials over the noise. Food was fabulous but pricey. The birthday boy did get his choice of desert for free which was very nice. Would go again just on a less busy day/time due the noise level.
From the time we walked in until we left, the experience was perfect.
Our service provided by Mike was absolutely top notch. He was knowledgeable, friendly, and overall very professional. There were some dietary restrictions and he worked with the chef in order for myself and my wife to enjoy our dinner without feeling like we missed out.
I can’t wait to refer this restaurant to others and return myself.
This was our third or fourth time at La Chesse. Other than the fact that the noise level was a little louder than I would have liked, our dining experience could not have been better. The owner remembered us from being there previously, which we found extremely impressive. La Chesse is becoming our go to restaurant for special occasions.
We had a great evening at La Chasse! Our waiter, Michael, made sure that we had everything we needed. This was our first time at La Chasse and we definitely plan to go back. Our drink order was taken in a timely manner, something which it seems very few restaurants in Louisville know how to do for some reason. We never felt ignored. We had the butternut squash bruschetta and it was amazing. Our main courses were the poussin and the boar meatballs. Delicious! We were so full that we were not able to sample the desserts, but next time! We hope to go back and possibly focus on appetizers and salads and desserts so that we can taste more items. Loved it!
My friends and I all agreed that it was one of the best meals that we have eaten in a long time. I had the crab cake appetizer, ricotta gnocchi and chocolate cheesecake. I loved the red wine sangria because is was made with such quality ingrediants. It was all outstanding from beginning to end. My friends raved about the soup of the day and the filet mignon. The other reviews are correct when they mention the noise level, but we will definitely be back.
Food quality was variable. Excellent crab cake appetizer. Osso Buco was very good but the accompanying potato croquette had no flavor. Seared sea scallops were so heavily seasoned that the flavor of the scallops was lost. That seasoning overwhelmed the taste of the wine. What left the experience unsatisfying was the service. We waited quite some time for our drinks, having completed our dinner order before they arrived. I kept having to place finished glasses/plates at the end of the table for the waiter to notice that we needed service. We were so frustrated that we did not look at the dessert menu, expecting another long wait.
We have started coming here practically once a week now. I will never stop eating that butternut squash bruschetta! Got mostly specials this time, and you have to know Chef Welenken and La Chasse never disappoint. I am telling everyone i know about this place! ❤️❤️
First time dining at La Chasse since last spring. 2 previous dinners were very good. Food and service down a few notches this time. 3/4 filets served to our table not cooked at requested temperature. I ordered medium rare, served as well done. At this price point that wasn’t acceptable. Mediocre salads and finished with mediocre dessert. Will b hesitant to return. Lots of options in Louisville that are better.
This place is so amazing!! Tile fish special was SO GOOD, and s’mores cheesecake absolutely to die for. Love the staff too, they obviously believe in the product and it’s easy to see why. My husband said it’s his favorite restaurant in town, and i always recommend La Chasse whenever someone is looking for somewhere new to try. You will not be disappointed! 👏😛🤤
Our date night goal was good wine and good charcuterie (outside of having dinner) and La Chasse did not disappoint. This was my first time at La Chasse and I just loved the ambiance. Our waitress was great and was on top of it. Perfect date night location. Most definitely will be back!
My wife and I went to La Chasse for a New Year's Eve dinner date. The food was amazing!! We started our meal with a crab cake appetizer. ( Spoiler Alert: only one crab cake comes with this appetizer). The crab cake was very good. Maybe a little undercooked for my taste, but the crab cake was very good flavor. My wife had the special Caesar salad and I had the standard spinach salad from their menu. Both were excellent. I really enjoyed the combination of pears and figs in my salad. For our entrees my wife had the fillet mignon and I had the rabbit. My wife's steak was cooked to perfection as was my rabbit. The jalapeno grits were amazing! The only complaint I had with the rabbit was the butchery. It appeared that they left part of the spine on the leg quarters and it was a little difficult to eat. We shared a slice of cheesecake with port wine cherries and it was the perfect way to end a great meal. The only overall complaint that I would have about La Chasse was the cost. The food was for the most part expertly prepared and well seasoned. I did feel however that it was overpriced by 15% to 20%.
What an amazing dining experience we had at LeChasse. Featuring, top drawer amazing food, top notch service that starts at the top with proprietor, Issac Fox who has put together a thoughtful reasonably priced wine list showcasing some very difficult to find bottles, and designed a craft cocktail list that this second to none, as well as an amazingly cool interior make this Restaurant Row hot spot a not to be missed destination.
