WE had excellent five star service. We felt very welcomed by the Host. We felt we were in a five star, first class restaurant. We felt like we were treated like queens! We received flowers and outstanding service. The food was very, very good! We highly recommend this restaurant for a special occasion or an evening out with your loved one!

My husband and I were there to celebrate our anniversary and his bday. We had a nice evening our waiter was great, i had brought a cake in but they said no outside food was allowed. They didn’t offer us or bring out a piece a cake or pie for him, just thought that was odd. But overall the restaurant was amazing.

It is pricey but the food and service was worth it. We started with the calamari which was so tender and the sauces were very tasty. We had the Chilean sea bass and tuna and both were delicious. The sides And corn bread that come with them were equally delicious. The table side smoked old fashioned, while a cool experience was pricey at $25 but a fun “treat” for celebrating a special occasion. Our waiter was was on point and added to an overall amazing meal. The 4 of us couldn’t find one bad thing to say about our entire meal and experience. Definitely worth every penny and treating ourselves to a nice celebration night out.

It has been a year since we dined inside BC23. It was wonderful to see the staff and renew our friendship. Food was spectacular as always and the restaurant has made some clever innovative ideas while traffic has been slower. Highly recommend the steaks that were cooked to perfection and the seabass. We cannot wait to return.

Generally this is an average restaurant that is a bit expensive. There really was nothing to recommend about it. It was a disappointment, and therefore could not recommend it.

Loved Mike! He helped us before we even arrived with a personal phone call. All the staff! Have not been to a restaurant in a long time where every staff member you come in contact with was kind, helpful and accommodating.
The remoulade with the fresh shrimp cocktail was spot on. The mushroom appetizer was amazing! Went well with our wine choice as did the strip that was cooked perfectly.
We had a wonderful experience! I will definitely be back next time in town. Thanks

Went to Brendon's on Kentucky Derby night and had a fantastic dinner. The restaurant has an incredible atmosphere, a great menu and excellent service. Also, the drink menu is a whiskey lover's dream. You pay for what you get, but I'd say it's well worth every dollar.

My parents were visiting and we were all looking forward to a top-tier dining experience at Brendon’s. I recently relocated from Chicago so I admit that I had high expectations/standards for Brendon’s based on reviews from friends and online. Cocktails were delicious, food was delicious (although we felt a bit rushed to order our entrees, but when we asked for extra time our server happily obliged). Prior to ordering our entrees, we noticed the wine list was lacking several of our favorite bottles displayed at the entrance that we’d planned to order (Caymus, Silver Oak, Opus, etc.) and that nothing on the wine list was over $100/bottle. This struck me as odd with the $50+ steaks and seafood, and the higher end bottles displayed up front. We asked for the wine list again and were told we already had it on the back of our menus. I asked if there was perhaps a higher end wine list we might look at, and only then was it offered to us. It was a very peculiar experience and I’d be willing to give Brendon’s another chance but it definitely rubbed me the wrong way.

The manager was extremely rude. We didn’t receive utensils until we asked for them AFTER our food arrived. We sat for about 15/20 min before a server approached us.

We were seated off to the side in a side room....it was quiet and a little awkward. We didn’t get to enjoy the real vibe and ambiance of the restaurant. Our server was fantastic and the food was absolutely delicious....appetizers and desserts included. It was a real treat for our weekend in Louisville....when we are back in town we will definitely return!

The owner should be ashamed. Over 30 people in line ( one poor person doing cashier work and taking orders he was also doing bar service ). I would say this place is taking advantage of the closing of many restaurants. The service offered is terrible.The food is ok. Lets hope as more places re open that do not follow the example of this place. I was visiting Louisville for the first time this place will be at the bottom of my list. It should be avoided.
