I was pleasantly surprised with the ability to carry on a good conversation at dinner. This is one of the best steak houses in Louisville Kentucky and it was surprisingly easy to communicate because the noise level was so calm. I personally enjoyed the buffalo bone in ribeye and they offer an excellent selection of appetizers including oysters and bacon wrapped shrimp. They have a giant wine selection and without question this is a nice restaurant when you were visiting downtown. I would recommend it to everybody.

Food was good, service was efficient albeit not very warm. Calamari was all breading and little meat. They always try to pour wine faster than you can drink it hoping that you will buy a 2nd bottle. That strategy never works with me. All in all, a pleasant experience that could have been better with a better server.

Went on a Friday night because I received an offer in the mail. It was not crowded and only moderate noise level, so was nice for quiet conversation. Seated and was prompted greeted by Preston, our server. We took a few minutes to decide on a nice wine, and he served it very professionally. We opted for an onion soup for starters that was one of the best I had ever had. Split a spinach salad with a delightful hot bacon dressing. I had a Waygu filet that was oh, so tender and cooked to perfection. The portion was perfect. Even though we were quite satisfied, we splurged on a dessert - cinnamon a la mode with was enough for four people. Preston was spot-on all evening and the experience was delightful. Total bill was $261 before tip - a bit on the high side, but good value considering all factors.

My filet mignon was supposed to be med well and was burnt. My girlfriends New York strip was supposed to be well done and is was less than med cooked and blood on her plate. All I tasted was burnt taste on my steak. Not even close to as good as it was last time we ate there.

We received a postcard advertising a king crab leg special. The waiter said they weren't split like the regular priced ones and were of "lesser quality." He said that more than once when we ordered them. When we had drinks my wife got a sliver of glass in her mouth from the glass. We could see the rim was chipped. The waiter said he would replace the drink and have a manager come over. The drink was replaced but we never saw the promised manager. And then when we got the check even though we had the advertised special crab legs (not split and of "lesser quality") we were charged the regular price and I had to have the check refigured.

The meal was a huge disappointment. The "all you can eat" crab legs were of very poor quality, and I've had better at a $12.00 Chines buffet. While my wife's steak was not bad, it did not "wow" her as we would have expected from a high-end steakhouse. Our brussels sprouts were probably the worst I've ever had...they were not trimmed as they should have been and were overall very tough to eat. We were very disappointed with our dinning experience.

Service was slow and when the server was there he was just odd. that's all I can say. The presentation came across as theatre and it was cheesy. One steak came out wrong and then came out again barely with any marks on it. It was extremely undercooked. Also had to ask for water and pour my own wine. My wife and I asked for to go bags as we had only eaten half of our meals. They never came. At $100 per head, I would be hard pressed to ever go back or recommend. There are several other high end steak house options in Louisville that execute better.

The service and quality has gone way downhill. From what used to be our favorite place....after the 4th time of lackluster food and meh service, we will probably not be bad. From issues with our table, a horrible smell as a server was cleaning with a dirty broom around our table, seafood at a just ok level and issues with our bill. Very disappointed again. This location is not special any longer.

We have been here several times and always enjoyed an excellent meal. Our party of 5 came specifically last Friday to celebrate a birthday and enjoy the Friday night seafood specials they advertise during lent. The service was outstanding, the appetizers excellent, the steaks sublime but the crab leg main courses were not up to the usual standards of this restaurant. 2 of us ordered the king crab 1 1b main course specials and parts of each were only luke warm while some of my daughter's were even cool. One serving seemed quite a bit larger then the other to the point that others at our table questioned whether the smaller one was actually the 1/2 lb add on my son ordered in addition to his steak. We were assured by our server that these were equal but our entire table had eyebrows raised. Topping this off was the seemingly petty practice of splitting the legs of the add on order for easy removal of the crab meat but not the special main course orders. Really? Because we ordered the special we had to work for ours? Eddie Merlot's you can and should do better than this.
