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.
The trout did not look appetizing and was covered in too much sauce. But Le Relais overall is still one of the best in Louisville!
Our food was cooked to perfection! We eat out a lot, and this is now our top restaurant in Louisville. The service was great, and the restaurant is beautiful. It’s located at Bowman Field in a 1940’s era building. Very cool vibe! Great place for a special night!!
I can't believe I've lived in Louisville this long & never tried this place. So glad we chose it for our anniversary dinner. Service was on point from the moment we walked in. Loved the mid century aero decor too. Food was yummy!
Excellent attentive wait staff. Food preparation and display was superb. We will be back.
Le Relais is always a great dining experience for us. No matter if you are going full out or just having a light meal, it is always enjoyable and special.
Le Relais is a favorite and rarely misses. Excellent cocktails, wines and food. Great service. Ordering fish is always a bit iffy in Kentucky and the dish I had was very good but not great. The others had scallops, steak frites and chicken and these were all delicious. The soufflé for dessert was very good. Overall a really nice evening.
Anniversary dinner out on the back patio looking out at the sunset and some great old planes coming in for an air show.
The food is always amazing!
We took my daughter in law out to celebrate her birthday. It was perfect! Exceptional service, the food was excellent! We loved the free trout. The wine list is plentiful. Love it!!!
This restaurant is outstanding and I am a foodie! I’ve been here on several important occasions and it’s always perfect. Anthony has a sharp wit and the food is delicious. The ambiance is second to none. Highly recommend!
Quaint, romantical! Loved the jazz music!
Cocktail and wine delish!
Dessert, ooo la la!
Waiter....TOO abrupt. His ways were brief and sudden and unexpected. Bit too fussy; not a calming presence that would've been preferred in a classy French restaurant.
Even so, will return!!
We had a great dinner experience at Le Relais. Wonderful French food in a relaxed, unpretentious environment. Five stars!
The service and food were fantastic.
My compliments to the host, who was particularly friendly and caring to my young daughter (it was her first meal at a fancier restaurant).
Service was fast and prompt when we had any needs.
We attended at 6pm on a Saturday, for reference, so I could not speak to later in the evening.
However, we have loved going here in the past for the incredible French food and our opinion of this establishment has only increased every time we visit.
Perfection always. ❤️❤️❤️
Another fabulous meal at an oasis of culture and sophistication. One of our favorites!
We have been here several times over many years. We had an early reservation here recently and a majority of the tables were still empty. This, no doubt, accounted for the very enjoyable relative quiet which allowed easy understanding of speech at a normal volume from across the table. This characteristic of restaurants is, sadly, quite a rarity these days, I suppose for economic reasons. We have also been here previously in prime time during large events in Louisville where the tables were packed and the background noise much higher.
Simply stated, the setting, service, menu, wine list and food quality were all excellent. It remains a favorite of ours in this city.
A wonderful restaurant that sometimes is forgotten or taken for granted. Le Relais has been serving excellent food for decades and last week it was as wonderful as ever, my wife’s fillet was marvelous and my duck breast was delicious
Not a better venue or menu in Louisville. Service is excellent. Ambiance perfect. Food delicious.
Great food and service. Owner stopped at our table to ensure we were well taken care of. Waiter was top notch with a good sense of humor. Jazz band needs some work but did not take away from the experience.
Fabulous dinner! I had both the special salad (with smoked duck breast!) and the special fish, beautifully cooked swordfish. Absolutely excellent! Always my favorite restaurant!
Awesome Birthday meal perfectly cooked and served.
Not the best dining experience ever, but the food was pretty good. Went for an anniversary dinner. Sat in the corner; service was slow. Ordered a cheese plate that came without bread. Staff came and dished out three small french bread slices for my husband and two for me. ? But overall, it was an okay experience and worth the babysitter.
Somewhat disappointed, previous visits were better. Salad lacked dressing, chicken was a bit dry, lamb was great. A bit pricey considering the quality of food. Excellent waiter.
Always a great dining experience! The food, atmosphere and service are superb!
Dinner for 8 with the typical fabulous service and ambiance. However, we were disappointed overall in the food. We eat at Le Relais numerous times a year, so this was notable. The Cobia was just "ok", and the oyster salad was devoid of oysters - just some fried crumbles (with little to no oysters). The duck was also disappointing. We had two guests, who did not comment on their food, but worth noting this was not the usual for Le Relais. On a positive note, the drinks were outstanding and the wait staff all attentive.
The ONLY negative was that they need to clean the air vents up on the walls. They were extremely dusty. Everything was outstanding! Highly recommend.
It was a great meal. Tasty food, impeccable service, pleasant atmosphere, and smooth jazz. What more could we ask for? Oh yes!! A Chocolate Martini!!
Classic French cuisine! We love Le Relais. The food and service are amazing!
We visit every year for our anniversary and always have a wonderful experience!
We visit Louisville once or twice a year and always dine at Le Relais. Andrew is a gracious host, the food and wine are spot on , and the service outstanding. We look forward to our next visit during the fall Churchill meet.
Celebrated a birthday dinner and the experience did not disappoint. The food, service, atmosphere outstanding but the value most impressive
Our family went for my wife's birthday. My kids had never been and wanted to experience a French restaurant. It is very similar to being in France. The service and food were excellent. Excellent wine values.
The food, service, ambience and live jazz was five star!!
Fabulous outdoor dining venue! Food was delicious and the service was top notch.
We really enjoyed our server!
We so enjoyed our meal on the patio overlooking the airfield. Our server was excellent--gave us great tips in response to questions; attentive but not overbearing. Food was excellent and reasonably priced given the quality and atmosphere, especially the option to order smaller plates for some orders.
The food was good but the service ranged from attentive at first to non existent by the end of the meal. It appeared that there was insufficient staff to take care of the number of customers present. Our waitress was uncertain/uninformed as to how the bottle of wine we ordered should be served. This is unacceptable in a restaurant of this caliber.
One of Louisville's best. Anthony D. maintains some of the highest standards in town for both the front and back of the house. Food is always fresh and prepared so well. Never have had a subpar experience. LeRelais is a "go to" spot.
Great environment! I Took my husband for his birthday and he loved it. We enjoyed watching the planes take off and land. We will definitely return. The owner n Staff were super!!!!!
