Food was amazing! Seriously, in the top 10 meals of my like. Had the king crab jar appetizer and cornbread crusted salmon. My friend had filet. Ramon, our waiter, was superb!
Only improvements I would suggest are…
1. Some of the table are pretty dated and feel like a “Holden corral”. Invest in better furniture and decor.
2. Butter cake dessert should be served with raspberries not strawberries.
Service from the hostess to the wait staff to the bus boy's service we great for the value.
The best fish I have ever had! Mashed potatoes, asparagus excellent!
Food is exceptional, servers and management are very friendly and attentive.
Excellent sea bass dish plus others really enjoyed their tuna and filet. They offer a unique tableside making of an Old Fashion, quite the show! Tons of bourbon choices too.
Nice restaurant in downtown Louisville.
Parking was 2 blocks away.
Food was of good quality, presentation was Moderate.
Prices towards high end average per person for 3 course without wine was $75/-
Amazing experience for our 10 year anniversary! Great bourbon selection, incredible food, and a wonderful waiter who took excellent care of us. They even printed out special menus for us. Thanks for making our night so lovely and memorable!
Absolutely loved the whole experience. Date night for me and my wife, we do every Friday and have a steak and seafood upscale spot and try new places all Over the city. Service was phenomenal, Heime and Karla are great! The bartender made us table side bourbons that were on point. Steak was 14oz cooked perfectly and mashed potatoes were creamy and tasty. My wife had the sea bass and was blown away. Loved every bite and both meals worth the price. Again service and atmosphere were great and we both enjoyed the whole experience.
Sam was an excellent waiter. He took care of our every request and his recommendation where terrific
This place is fantastic. Great food and service. Steaks were perfect! You have to get their shrimp cocktail, it is very delicious and creative with the dry ice.
The Chilean sea bass was excellent. Everything else was good . Butter cake was very good too.
Superb seafood! Must try the king crab leg meat in butter as an appetizer. The scallops were perfectly seared and tender. Fantastic dinner!
The old fashioned is amazing. Great start to the evening. Sadly that’s where it halted. Calamari was very rubbery and did not finish. I was surprised that the server did not ask about it when she took the plate and I declined to have it boxed. Decided on the filet for my main. Maybe I have high expectations, but it came out med well when I ordered med rare at most. My fiancé was done with his meal by the time the steak was brought. I did receive “we will get you another” from the manager but that was all. For $300 for 2 people, I’ll go to Morton’s next time.
Food was good, service was friendly, the old fashioned I had was delicious but my wife’s drink wasn’t drinkable. The kicker here was that this placed billed itself as upscale, it’s not. People were in t-shirt and shorts with backward baseball caps.
Not a date night place, it’s a hotel restaurant for guests and maybe some tourists in the area.
Everything from the Smoked Old Fashion, the Shrimp Cocktail to the main course and service was exceptional.
Food was great. Would be a five star if the price wasn’t so obnoxious. $25 for an old fashioned is a bit much. Server was awesome. There are too many other great places to eat in Louisville and not having to deal with parking is a plus.
Food was wonderful!!! Our waiter was awesome!!! Drinks were great too.
I took my fiancé here for our second visit so he could try and different dish and he couldn’t get a his steak well done due to restaurant policy. This is the only way he will eat his steak. And paying for this his quality steak, amazed that you can’t get it how you want it! To add to that, we couldn’t substitute sides and when ask the question about trying new entree’s and being displeased.. the waiter ensured us to get something that we know we’d like… understanding that this is a personal perspective, however this did put a great damper on our experience.
Staff provided great service and we enjoyed a wonderful meal. We ate grilled scallops and grouper.
The food was amazing—from the apps to the salads to the entree—everything was fresh, delicious, and flavorful. The service was a tad slow at times (seems like they got slammed all at once and had some private parties going, too), but we still had a wonderful night out and delicious meal.
the food was delicious! very thankful to find fresh fish!
Great anniversary dinner. Your staff are excellent. A special shout out to Lane, who made our drinks table side. He’s great.
Great brown booze experience - loved the smoking cart - Justin was informed and made it fun ever for the non-drinker! Carla was a fabulous server - took great care of us - good was good. Great spot!
This is one of the best meals we've ever had, even compared to fancy and expensive restaurants in Paris. Everything was perfectly balanced and delicious. Exceeded expectations. Definitely eat here.
Excellent food and service!
I choose this restaurant for my family to celebrate my bday.
Was very unhappy about trying to get reservations for 7 of us. Wanted to charge us $100 each for a private room . I did get them to agree to have 2 tables next to each other. Then I was told they couldn’t be pushed together even slightly. The man said he was not comfortable with that. We are all family and my mother is hard of hearing. We had 2 separate checks one for each table. I have no idea what all the fuss was about . Im sure we spent at least $700 between us . Will find another restaurant for family celebrations from now on.
This is a pricey restaurant that offers a unique experience. The ambiance is classy without being stuffy. No white tablecloths, but highly polished wood and comfortable seating. Service was cordial and efficient. We enjoyed a bourbon flight and signature cocktail, appetizer, steak and seafood entrees, and a side of haricots verts. Everything was beyond delicious! The cornbread muffins were to die for. I now understand the big deal about Sea Bass. I would definitely return for a special occasion.
Loved everything we got! Appears there was only 2 cooks working. We were seated at 8:20 and got our entrees at 10:10. All good. Server was great. Food was great. We weren't in a rush and we will be back!!! Great job to all staff there!
Loved everything about Brendon's Catch 23! Food was amazing, service was great and facility is beautiful. Will definitely be back.
Incredible dinner. Great atmosphere, and Megan our server was an absolute sweetheart. Our second time here, and it does not disappoint. It will not be our last. Great cocktails, get something with bourbon, and plan on an amazing dinner of delectable delights!
Service was outstanding, food was mostly very good.
Everything was amazing! We had a wonderful evening :)
We had excellent service and the food was very good. I would highly recommend the spicy tuna tartar. Also, the mashed potatoes were delicious. The shrimp pasta was excellent. The sea bass was super tender, but a little bland.
Coordinating parking was not made easier by two competing valet stations, on opposite sides of the street, in front of the restaurant.
No recognition of the occasion which we provided per their ask in setting up the reservation. Some of the food was cold.
Did an outstanding job on our request for a side booth.
Overall it was fine.
Dinner with friends. Food and service were excellent.
Subpar food. Service was good but I put it down as an anniversary and it felt rushed. We ordered the lump crab appetizer that is drowned in butter next thing I know butter is ALL over my dress. If you get this appetizer be careful it’s a mess. My boyfriend got the steak and I got the Chilean Seabass (Waitress’s recommendation) we both took a bite and looked at each other and said it was just ok. Drinks were really good but I would go somewhere else for the money. Also put down as a special request to not be seated in a booth. I was in a nice dress I did not want to scoot in and out of a booth. When we got there we were about to be escorted to a booth I then requested again that we be seated at a table. We waited 20 mins at the bar and then was escorted to a half table, half booth. We were in town for a wedding and next time we come back to Louisville we’ll skip this restaurant.
Our server had wonderful recommendations and provided excellent service. My steak was cooked perfectly and my fiancé enjoyed his crab cakes. They had a wonderful selection of bourbons and wines. I look forward to my next visit.
Amazing place! Best Bourbon list ever and every thing we ate was perfectly done!
Our service was slow. Nice place but didn’t wow for $200 a couple.
