For a more romantic view of the airport, watch the planes land in the sunset with our outdoor dining on the deck. With a little imagination, you can see it exactly as Charles Lindbergh did when he landed the "Spirit of St. Louis" here in 1927.
Excellent anniversary dinner. From appetizer through dessert everything was perfect and the service was great. A perfectly paced experience. We had crab cakes, salad du jour of peach and arugula, husband got the filet and I had the lamb chops. Finished with the profiteroles but I gotta say, the Grand Marnier soufflé we saw being delivered to other tables looked lovely. We’ll definitely be back.
All great! Can’t wait to go back.
We had friends visiting from out of town and wanted to provide them a unique experience with drinks and dinner by the airport. Great evening! Drinks on the patio and a lovely dinner inside. I appreciate the half size dinner portions too.
A perfect evening!
Outstanding. The scallops and risotto were perfect.
This is my favorite. Love everything about it. Food was excellent. Decor the best. Easy location to get to and park.
Food was fantastic, ambiance was subdued elegance and service was attentive. We very much enjoyed it.
For our 58th Anniversary, we enjoyed the entire evening! From the gracious greeting upon entrance to the perfect souffle at the end, it was first-class. We have celebrated many special occasions and regular dining times over many years--never disappointed!
I had lived in Louisville ~ 18 years ago and really enjoyed Le Relais. I also always enjoyed Anthony the owner. I probably hadn't been back in over 13 years. My wife and I were overjoyed to find every bit as much of perfect dining experience with a memorable meal and an elegant bistro ambiance. I would highly recommend Le Relais to anyone looking for a fine dining experience. Anthony still does a great job !
The service and food was outstanding and I highly recommend this establishment to anyone wishing to celebrate a special event, like just wanting a great meal.
Upon arrival you are greeted by the owner and directed to you seating. The your greeted by your waiter then it goes on from there.
We will be returning every chance we have.
Most dependable fine dining in Louisville, decade in, decade out.
Excellent food and service as always.
Very friendly and hospitable waiters and owner. Food was served in a very timely manner where we didn’t feel rushed. Food was well prepared and the escargots were the way we liked them with a minor comment. Needed a bit more garlic.
We will be back and bring friends.
Would have liked some soft music.
Food was delicious. The half portions were just perfect and facilitated multiple courses, , wine, appetizer, salad, entree and dessert. Service was good but a bit sluggish....the restaurant was quite busy. Waitress was very knowledgeable.
Always good food and service. Anthony and his staff are wonderful.
Oh Charlie’s food for Ruth Chris prices and Applebee’s service.
One of our favorites. A Louisville restaurant treasure.
Le Relais is wonderful! The owner prides himself of the comfort of his guests and makes hospitality a top priority. We’ve had Noah as a server multiple times- his service is unparalleled. The attention-to-detail and culinary expertise here is not to be missed! Highly recommend!
We had 3 appetizers -- calamari, mushrooms and the pate. All of these were excellent. Each of us had a different entree. The caesar salad was quite good, the salamon was excellent and the crab cakes were fantastic. Everything was top notch!
Antony & Ponch took great care of us.
Most consistently good service and food presentation in Louisville
Another wonderful meal at Le Relais, probably our favorite restaurant in a city with a dynamic restaurant scene. A very nice room, excellent service, always a real French meal nicely prepared and Anthony a charming host.
Birthday dinner celebration for husbands birthday. Wonderful food and great ambiance
We celebrated our 22nd wedding anniversary there and had a wonderful time. The setting is unique and lovely. Loved the cheese platter, sparkling wine and dessert. The steaks were a bit over cooked and not very hot but everything tasted delicious. It was a tad noisy at first but we had dessert out on the deck and that was really nice and peaceful looking out onto Bowman Field.
From the gentleman who greeted us at the front door to the waiter they were arrogant and could care less. The waiter disappeared for over 35 minutes and wanted to point out to us that waiting for our food for 1 1/2 hours was to be expected. When we left no one said a word to us. How was your meai, thank you for coming or even drop dead. The food was good, but i would never return or recommend it to anyone. I rarely post negative comments but this place was one of few.
Always a pleasure at Le Relais. Upbeat, classy ambiance, great wine list. Appetizers are terrific, entrees are a bit more standard but reliable. Only problem on this past visit was time b/w apps and entrees was just too long, unusually so (maybe 25 min). Other than that we'll go back many more times.
I have been coming to Le Relais for 24 years, and it remains one of Louisville’s culinary gems. Whether it is to celebrate a special occasion or to simply have a cocktail on the patio overlooking Bowman Field, Le Relais never disappoints.
Love the feel of this place. Old school cool. Elegant yet comfortable. The food is always top notch as well.
Our dining experience at Bistro Le Relais was thoroughly enjoyable on all fronts; food quality, prompt-friendly-attentive service, and a pleasant, inviting atmosphere.
The wine was excellent and service was good. Great ambiance. The food was just ok, especially for the price. The food presentation was lacking.
Celebrated my wife's birthday at Le Relais on Saturday evening. The service was excellent starting with our immediate seating at a preferred corner table by window. Our servers Punch and Amy were very professional and always there when needed, but not interfering. We enjoyed a cabernet wine and champagne by the glass which was delicious, dry and reasonably priced. Our appetizer was the house pate and the strawberry house salad, yum. Our two entrees were the lamb chops and scallops which were perfecting prepared, hot and served together without delays. As part of the birthday celebration was our final dessert selection was the special Grand Marnier soufflé. Excellent!!
Great atmosphere! Great food! One of the best restaurants in Louisville.
Still the very best restaurant in Louisville. Period.
Excellent service from both our waiter as well as the owner/manager. Cocktails were tasty, and food was delicious. Manager assisted us with wine pairings that went very well with the meal. We all had a wonderful dinner; made us wonder why it'd been so long since we'd been back.
One of our favorite all time dining experiences in Louisville. Always creative and delicious menu options. Welcoming and responsive in a unique locale and well designed dining experience.
We dined a couple of courses and were there an hour and 45 minutes as we sat back and enjoyed the jazz trio after dinner. It was a great evening and look forward to our next dining visit.
Fabulous place, with an airport theme, understated. Great food and wines. Worth the trip!!
