    I was unaware that there was no table service in the bar. I probably would have gone somewhere else with our party of 8 had I known. It was a lot of getting up and standing at the bar. Food was very good though.

    This is a gorgeous space with sweeping views of downtown Louisville. The food was great as were the drinks. Service was a bit off. My main complaint is that the place was so quiet. The atmosphere begged for some nice music, but they weren't playing anything. It was completely silent. Very odd for a bar.

    I didn't realize the menu was so limited food-wise. Of the 9 or 10 small plates, one of the two I wanted was out of stock going into a Wed evening. What I had (mini burgers) was delicious. The tomatoes were disappointing - refrigerated and two had started to turn ... but the burgers themselves, with havarti, crispy onions, and "French dip aioli" were tasty, filling, and reasonably priced. My server was attentive without being intrusive (I was dining alone and working during my meal). The tables were fairly close together, but that was only an issue when I was wrapping up my time and the tables on either side of me were seated - for most of my visit, both were empty. The venue is beautiful. I wish there was more in the way of a full meal available in the evening at Hotel Genevieve; but that is my only complaint.

    This place transports you to a Parisian salon. The ambiance is sublime, sink into one of the leather chairs or snuggle on a bench seat. We sampled the fries, burger and crab cake - all top notch. The artichoke and spiced nuts, rather forgettable. Our server was friendly, but she appeared to the only person working - not her fault, but we only had one cocktail as she never returned to our table. The terrace was available, the doors were wide open and the interior was chilly - bring your sweater or a blanket.

    The rooftop bar is incredibly sophisticated. The decor is perfect. You feel as if you are somewhere else. Not in downtown Louisville Ky. However, when we approached the hotel desk to find the elevator we were greeted with the gentlemen questioning us if we had a reservation. I see the point but the manner in which we were asked was a bit unprofessional. Not welcoming at all. We did indeed have a reservation. We were seated at a perfect table. However, when we sat down they were running low on menus and gave us one for four people. Not a huge deal but then told that there were not servers so we would need to order everything at the bar. Again not a huge deal but had to ask for waters, and utensils after our food came. They did bring them to the table. The gentleman who brought our food out was fantastic. He was trying to cover everyone in our area and was doing everything himself. There were two individuals at the host stand and they were seating people but otherwise not aware that they were helping out in other ways. Maybe they could have seated us with our utensils. Ambiance was ok there was some good music playing over speakers. Candles on tables were not lit so we asked for matches and lit our own candles. Gentlemen who brought our food over brought us the matches. Maybe the host could have also done this? Over all it is a beautiful place. Food was good. Charcuterie board was huge and our favorite thing. The Penny Chenery drink was fantastic. We will give it another try for sure. I know it’s hard to find help but I think managing the help that was there a bit more efficiently would have helped our dinner be more enjoyable.

    We visited the evening of the NULU festival. There was an unexpected and unavoidable staff shortage that evening. We were informed of this when we arrived but opted to stay. Regardless, Kelsey at the outdoor bar was very attentive and efficient as well as friendly. The food bites, though slightly pricey were delicious. We had the burgers, fries, hot brown and the crab dish. The cocktails were tasty. The sunset from our patio table was beautiful. Thank you for the lovely evening!

    Gorgeous venue and the food was excellent. Our server was marginal at best. It took 20 minutes for us to get a drink when we were first seated. Also I had been told that the rooftop bar now has the full dinner menu. It did not. I took a friend for his birthday dinner which is why I called to double check the rooftop had a full menu so I was very diappointed.

    The charcuterie board, crab cakes and hot brown were fantastic. The charcuterie board is enough for 3-4 people to snack on with everyone getting a good amount of everything. Our server was very attentive but laidback, the decor and ambiance was very balanced, top notch but not pretentious. A good spot away from the 40 year olds that still think their in college and from the 60 year olds who can’t choose between Margaritaville, Hard Rock Cafe and Ruth Chris’ Steakhouse.

    The ambience was great but the food menu needs an overhaul. There were maybe 8 options to choose from and they were very strange selections. My friend and I went to grab drinks and lite snacks and ended up only getting one drink and no food which was disappointing. I don’t eat seafood and the charcuterie was $50 (which is way too expensive for just 2 people) so that eliminates basically half of the options. Other than that there were some olives and mini burgers. The only thing I would have selected maybe were fries but that’s not sufficient. The service was very slow. It took so long to close out for the one drink that we weren’t able to make it to another restaurant across the street in time before closing. Maybe the restaurant downstairs is better but probably won’t return to the rooftop.

    Loved the rooftop- even in a rainstorm. The first floor restaurant, however, was very disappointing. Slow, irritable service, odd servings (oxtail served only with a torn piece of bread, no sides??). I'll go for rooftop again, but not to the restaurant. Also, hotel staff not helpful when someone in our group reached out for help because she left her phone in the Uber that dropped us off.

    Really cooo decor and vibe. Spot was practically packed but we still had really good attentive service at both inside and outside bar. Their espresso martinis are made in house and are available on two. Seriously one of the best I’ve ever had! Tried a couple other cocktails which were also fantastic! They had a little snack plate and while it’s not something to satisfy hunger it was perfect to munch on something over drinks, delicious and with great presentation Highly recommend for a girls night, a casual date night or a group work outing. Will say- definitely try to make a reservation for mugger groups. It get a bit busy

    Great ambience and location. Marco was an awesome server. Our 7:30 reservation and the specific table put several of us directly in the intense sun for half of the visit. It would be nice to see a blind/screen to block the sun for this particular area. I’m sure we can’t be the only one with this comment. It was uncomfortable and that unfortunately made it harder to enjoy the great setting. Mark

    Came here for a much needed date with the fiancé, we brought our 5 month old daughter who was chill (per usual) only fussing briefly when we were wrapping up our 2 hour stay for some *breastaurant* service. Speaking of service the place was packed (7 PM Thursday reservations). They had one server and 2 assistant. Expected to be waiting longer but we got our food within 15 minutes of ordering it. Our drinks took about as long, maybe less but with a full house and one server getting her attention took a bit longer. View and music were on point, will definitely be coming back to try other menu items! The expanded bites are great. The full service restaurant downstairs also has a mouthwatering menu and is open all day too for a full menu experience!
