Wonderful food and wine! Hanger steak was delicious! The three course menu was very good! The duck flatbread was good... although the figs could have been smaller and less balsamic vinegar would have been better . They seemed to overwhelm the duck... but still good! Scott Harper helped us select wine. He was very helpful and personable! Will be back! Want to try a wine dinner or wine class!

The salmon is the best! I have cravings for this salmon dish. It has a cherry glaze, that isn't too sweet, and adds a very nice flavor.

Our server seemed to either be in drugs or drunk. When he was talking to us about the menu he was all over the place. We also ordered food, he came back 15 minutes later, asked about our food and he stated he forgot about it.

Hello Jennifer, I am incredibly sorry for your poor service and I take this very serious! I believe we had the same server waiting on our table? That server gets flustered when busy and has issues communicating, we will work on this. Although this does not excuse the poor service, I have private messaged you to learn more. Thank you! Scott Harper

Amazing food and staff. They are very helpful and knowledgeable. It is the place for that special wine experience in Louisville. There is no other place like it in the Metro area. It is a place that you only expect to find in a big city like New York or LA. I don't know how they do all this, and keep the prices low on both food and wine. If you like to drink great wine, you will love this place.

Great second visit for dinner. Food was really good, and my glass of Italian Rose was a great suggestion. My husband had the fox hollow farms burger and said it was excellent. Both my salads on each visit were terrific. And the flatbread pizza was delicious.

We are on way through to cincinnati and needed a spot to eat. My husband and I shared numerous plates, we loved them all. The burger of the day was perfectly cooked, the fried calamari with aioli, excellent. We also shared grilled salmon with asparagus, fungi flatbread with truffle oil...finished it all with a skillet chocolate chip cookie and 2 scoops of ice cream. We will be back when we are passing through town again. Loved it!

I loved the food and the manager was very insightful and entertaining! He taught us some things we didin't know about wine and was very attentive. It would be great for a group of 10 as they have a hightop table in the lounge area and they also have a room for small parties - perfect for a wine tasting!

Went there on date night with my wife. I dont drink wine and figured I would just be drinking water. They had beer and liquor there as well which I didnt see on website. Huge selection of wines. Great food. Waiter was a little more concerned with a bigger table once they were seated which is understandable but that would be the only complaint I had if I were to complain. Overall great experience will be going back in future.

Great place for a fun girls’ night out. We enjoyed the wine selection and the food was perfect for sharing. My only complaint is the amount of paper - between food menus, wine flight menus, prix fixe menus, and a bottle menu, it was a bit ridiculous. Didn’t know where to put our food and wine because we had paper everywhere.

The service was excellent and the food was delicious. I believe you should offer a few large plates as my husband is a large man.

The wine selection was wonderful. Our waiter was great but didn’t have much knowledge about the wines. How about a cheat sheet for the staff.

Marinara for the calimari would have been nice as well. Was a bit chilly sitting in the area by the door. We’ll be back.

There are two best parts about Cuvée, the wines and the service, after that I'd take a pass on returning. We were warmly greeted by the host and attended professionally by our waiter. The wine selections were impressive with a decent selection for both domestic and non-domestic wines. We chose a flight of 3 wines from France & Italy, each was delicious, but we settled on a glass of Côte-du-Rhone for a longer drink. That's where the best parts ended.
One thing about being located in a shopping center is that I'd personally would like to forget that I'm in a shopping center once I'm seated. In this case I got a great view of the Dollar General store and the traffic that occasionally streamed by. There are better seats, the restaurant was not crowded, and so I was perplexed by this placement. Then there was the food. I'm fine with small plates, in fact, I enjoy small plates, but with small plates you have to provide a punch of flavor. None of our 3 dishes did that. I received the cookbook "Fat, Acid, Salt the shrimp were nicely cooked, but they forgot to taste to see if the seasonings were complimentary--they weren't; the salmon was cooked appropriately as well, and it's hard to mess up salmon, but it left us unimpressed.
I appreciate the effort to provide a wine bar to the mix of restaurants in Louisville, but this one needs to amp up it's foods and soften the glaring atmospherics of being in a strip shopping center.

We enjoyed the small plates for our smaller appetites and the fact that it was handicap accessible. Like the ability to try 2 ounce glasses of wine.

My friends and I had a great dining experience.
I have been to Cuvee a few times and love it. None of my friends had been, but they all loved it, even the ones that don’t drink. We all loved the steak special dinner. The service was excellent, as usual. I love the wine deals and the wine list.
We are already planning to go back as a group, and they are planning on taking their husbands. My husband has been with me and loves it, too. Burger night is great, as well; Tuesdays.

This would be an excellent place to go get drinks after work, which i think is probably the main idea behind the restaurant. That being said, the food was below average and honestly not very good; we had the calamari, shrimp and polenta fries and we were let down by all three. The service was excellent, but we left our dinner date feeling disappointed in the food quality. Their wine list is excellent and we may be back just to grab drinks after work because of the great service and drink list, but will not be back for dinner.

The service at Cuvee was spectacular! Everyone who was working in that restaurant took great care of us and it was very all hands on deck. Tony was very attentive and recommended his favorite bottle of wine that we ended up ordering and it was delicious. My friend and I had a fantastic first experience at Cuvee and we will be back!

Everything here is mediocre including the wine list. I wanted to like Cuvee, but for the money there are much better options in Louisville. The decor is nice and our service was good, although the server smellled strongly of cigarettes. The food isn't bad. Just doesn't live up to the expectations set by the prices.

Always pleased with the wine and food selections. The only reason for 4 instead of 5 stars for the food this time was a rather bland crab bruschetta. This was always a favorite small plate so I have to wonder what changed. For the first time, in all my visits, I had to ask my server for salt and pepper; a bit of citrus would have also helped the dish. Despite this issue, the rest our small plates were fantastic! Will return.
