    Steak was great, however sides over seasoned and under cooked. Server was great and never had to ask for anything.

    I loved that Jeremy the executive chef took time to describe the menu to us personally. We ordered the shrimp and grits, steak fritters and ravioli to share. Fabulous to have a little bit of each. We started with goat cheese spread which was delicious. Lovely festive atmosphere. I took my daughter to celebrate passing her nursing boards and I am glad we did. We had fun!!

    Kimberly, Thanks so much for such a detailed review. We hope to see you again. We are thrilled to hear your celebration was a success.

    This gem is located in a bustling neighborhood. You might need to search the side streets first parking, but it wasn’t too hard to find a spot on a busy Friday night in late June. The restaurant is very cozy and comfortable. Our server was incredibly knowledgeable about the menu, bourbon, and wine while being very friendly and attentive. My wife had the rich and delicious shrimp and grits, while I had the salmon with a creative succotash. The food was amazing, the drinks were delicious, and the Carmel coated popcorn ice cream special topped everything off perfectly. An all around great evening.

    Dan, Kudos for taking the time for such a detailed review. We hope to host you again soon.

    We cannot say enough good things about the meal we had last night at Bourbons bistro. I had the filet and it was cooked to perfection. Hands-down the best steak I’ve had in Louisville since moving here a year ago. My partner had the pork chop and it was also incredible. 10/10 meal.

    Wow, this is an amazing review. We love hearing that you’ve discovered 2 of our most popular dishes. We hope as you explore the wonderful culinary cuisine our city has to offer, that we can host you again.
