Contemporary American | East Market St - NuLu, Louisville

We had a great meal here. We were running late due to unforeseen traffic but texted the restaurant and they saved a spot for us. Our cocktails and cheese board were great. We shared a steak that was too rare for our taste and that was very cold in comparison to the fries it came with. We also ordered rolls to come with our meal, but they came before our entree and they were cold by the time our entree arrived. Our server was very knowledgeable but somewhat slow. Overall we liked how quiet it was and would definitely eat here again on another occasion. More

Southern | Lexington, Lexington

We are vacationing here and wanted the historical experience of dining in a horse farm home. This 150+ yr home was in great condition and clean. Everyone was friendly and we really enjoyed our food. The salad was crisp and ingredients of good quality. The Southern Fried chicken was memorable. The meal was surprisingly economical. We might return this trip. More

Italian | Lexington, Lexington

Always delicious, always a great idea. My parents have been coming here as their date night place for about 20 years now. It is like pulling off into a place within the city of Lexington, that feels more like you're at an Italian coastal location. Something out of a Nicolas Sparks novel. The live jazz music will not disappoint in adding to the ambiance. Giving 5 stars is a no brainer. More
