Food was delicious. The outdoor patio has a great atmosphere. One of the largest bourbon selections in the City. Jason, the owner, was very hospitable.
We had an enjoyable evening on the patio. Great food and drinks! Bourbons Bistro never disappoints.
Due to the virus we are only dining outdoors at restaurants taking all precautions. When looking where to celebrate my birthday we were told about Bourbon's patio. We've enjoyed many celebrations here but always inside. We booked a table on the patio and found tables very well spaced and sanitized, all employees and non seated guests properly masked. The service and food were, as always, amazing!
My girlfriend and I have been going to Bourbon’s Bistro for some time now. We’ve always had an excellent time whether it’s family and friends in town or a date night. We had friends in town who were on the Bourbon Trail so what better restaurant to take them to than one with bourbon in its name! The food was spectacular. We had Salmon cakes and Goat cheese spread for appetizers. Two people got burgers which were cooked to order, one got the pork chop who loved the peach topping and I got the Steak Frittes and it melted in mouth every bite. Best steak I’ve had yet! Along with two bottles of a wonderful Cabernet Sauvignon to accompany dinners and bourbons, the recommendation from our server and pours were excellent. Dessert was a special apple spice cake that came out warm which is a rarity. Overall our friends loved the restaurant and we know where we’ll be going when more friends and family come to Louisville to visit! Excellent job to the cooks and to our server!
Great food, great service! Can’t believe it wasn’t more crowded on Wednesday when we were there.
Thank you Molly!

Everything was great - the music was terrible and really too loud but the food was perfect
Been a couple of times normally pretty good. I think usually they have a hard time getting steak temperature correct, so it usually has to be sent back. They compensated with a free dessert which is great customer service.
I have gotten the gnocchi before and enjoyed it, but this time it was overly sweet.
A beautiful, quiet, friendly environment with amazing food, courteous and attentive staff, and great cocktail selections.
Food was delicious. Great bourbon list. Nice space.
The atmosphere was good, but unfortunately that was about as good as it got for us. It would have been nice to know as seated that they “ran out of steak” which took away two out of six entree options away, that is specifically what 3 out of the 4 people wanted. We never thought to ask if they were out of entree options(due to it being 7:30 on a Saturday) before ordering & weren’t informed until literally in the middle of ordering they were out of steak. Instead 3 out of 4 order an overpriced burger which they didn’t have pickles either for the burger. The service was superb. I order a second drink, but never received it and it was too close to leaving to say anything. The men had to remind the server after 20 minutes of waiting for their second drink. One drink was taken away from the table before finished and didn’t ask if they were finished. We provably will not be back due to the price not equivalent to the service and food options. We usually have a wonderful experience on Frankfort Ave. This was not one of them. I would rather go to Jack Fry’s, Volare, or Porcini’s for the price, service & atmosphere. Maybe it should have been a sign it was the ONLY Frankfort Ave/Hill Crest establishment with open reservations on a Saturday night.
Great restaurant but they were out of several items on the menu. Service was sub par
Best pork chop ever!!
Food was great and the chef was very accommodating. Service was incredibly slow, sat with empty drinks for over 20 minutes. Considering the few tables she had it’s hard to understand how slow service could be.
First time there and the food was excellent. Chilean Salmon was some of the best fish I ever had. Great selection of bourbons as well. As it happened we ended up having a flat when we got out and as we started to change it in the rain the owner personally came out to assist. Was very appreciative and we will definitely be back.
What a great night on the patio! Everything from the service, food, bourbon selection, cocktails and live music was great. We will definitely be back soon!
It was a lovely dinner. We sat out on the patio, listened to some live music and enjoyed our evening.
Had a lovely dinner here with friends on Saturday. The restaurant is following all COVID-19 safety regulations. The dining room was comfortable.
Our server, Wendy, was helpful and made sure we had what we needed.
Staff was great about accommodating friend's dietary needs and the dish was adjusted to meet those.
Food was amazing!
Wonderful food, service, and cocktails.
Wonderful as usual
Always a good experience in every way at bourbon’s bistro.
From drinks to appetizers, dinner and dessert. ALL was wonderful! Can’t wait to go back and try other offerings.
Was looking forward to a good steak dinner, but was surprised to find only one steak choice which was a filet. I prefer New York Strip.
Great experience for dinner! Mike the bartender was very knowledgeable.
I had never been here before but the food was great! Best pork chop I've had in years and the spicy fried oysters were a real treat. My wife enjoyed her tuna tacos too, but said she thought they would have been better if the tacos had been served traditionally but with a wonton crunch sprinkled on the tuna instead of in a wonton shell. There was a fantastic selection of bourbons and the cocktails were terrific. The one small complaint was that we had indicated on OpenTable that it was a special occasion but this information never made it to our waitress - not a big deal and we didn't push on it. We will definitely be back!
Took my boyfriend here for his birthday - great service, great food! Wait staff followed all safety precautions, and tables were spaced 6+ ft apart.
Waitress was super nice, the food was great. Really like this place!
No one likes to eat while sweating! The restaurant was hot. Obviously the AC was not working and it was 92 degrees outside. Not a good experience at all!
Great food, terrific service, awesome bourbon selection!
It was with some trepidation that we decided to actually go to a restaurant for our anniversary due to the pandemic. However our fears were unfounded eating here.
We had a great time. Our meal was delicious. The cocktails were wonderful. Everything was spotless and the tables were well spaced. So glad we went!
Will definitely be back---highly recommend.
Great dinner for two, in a relaxed setting - Great Job BB
We enjoyed the salmon patties and a cocktail and it was all so delicious. When the main dish came we were in heaven. Hands down the best pork chop I’ve ever had, juicy and so flavorful. The orange olive oil cake was big enough to share with a group. Overall, we were so impressed. We will definitely be back. Plus, the service was attentive and friendly. She gave great suggestions and was a doll.
The food was great but the service was lacking. My sister and I ordered drinks and an appetizer and those were great! However, we ordered our entrees and they took over an hour until they were served to us. I was not upset at the wait as they were busy, but never once did our server come over and let us know the status of our order or let us know that the kitchen was running behind. Had she been more attentive to us and keeping us updated, I would’ve had a much more pleasant experience. With great service this place would have been a 5/5 star experience.
Food has always been consistently good. I think we came on a bad night, because service was extremely slow. It took us an hour and a half to get our entrée. It won’t deter us from returning. As this is one of our favorite places to go to. It was just an exceptionally slow evening.
Our waitress was so friendly and nice and she knew the menu and helped answer every single question we had. The food was absolutely DELICIOUS and savory and met all my taste buds!!! Definitely must come back !!!
Perfect place and delicious food! I would recommend this place to anyone.
Date night was just perfect - drinks, food, music and service; all of it. We both had the Caesar salads which were so tasty with tomatoes and bacon. For dinner he had the steak frites and I had the salmon; absolutely wonderful! Can't wait to go again
Our first night out after quarantine & first time at Bourbons. Sat outside on a perfect Friday night in June. Mgmt fully compliant with social distancing guidelines. Dinner was delicious
