Great food and service as always. Needs some music or something to softly create some ambience. It was distracting to hear other diners conversations all around the room.
Excellent service and delicious food. We will return with friends.
The Black Rabbit Soeakeasy was a fun experience, very nice! The service staff was too notch, friendly and always on point with drink refills and food service; they did a great job managing the table and flow. Great experience. The food was very good! Cooked exactly as ordered and expected. This was our first time going to this place and we will definitely be back! Adding this one to our top notch place to take out of town family and friends. Perfect experience!
Comfortable and delicious. Looking forward to returning.
Food and cocktails were fantastic however our server rseemed extremely out of it and disinterested. Since they all smelt of a dispensary I would imagine that was the issue. The restaurant was not even half way full however it took almost 35 minutes to get our first drink. Once we received our drinks they were great and so was the food however I haven’t had such poor service in a very long time.
We had. Wonderful Evening, thank you!
Casual, comfortable, excellent drinks & good too!
Absolutely love this place!! The bartender Will was a perfect host! I cannot say anything negative! Wednesday is half off bottles of wine and Will talked me into the Seveche which I had never had before. I was not disappointed 😀. This place is the best!!!
We absolutely loved our experience at the Black Rabbit Speakeasy. Upon arrows met our waiter who after speaking with us a bit suggested we would really enjoy the Speakeasy section especially since I was looking for craft cocktails. Nick checked to see if there was room and there was. Nick was spot on with his assessment and appreciated his willingness to give us the best experience! We sat at the bar which we love as we like to meet people. Will our bartender was fabulous as a mixologist and server. He was attentive but not intrusive. The food was also good. The tuna tartare was the best and I had the fried chicken which is what they are known for and it didn’t not disappoint! We were there for several hours and would definitely go back!! Thanks for the best night ever!
All was good.... appetizer, salad & entrees. I had the fried chicken and it was delicious. My dare had the papardelle & it too was delicious. Portions were fair a we left full. Cocktails were good but I found the wine list by the glass to be lacking
Awesome atmosphere, amazing service, and the food and drinks were very good, would definitely recommend.
Casual everyday dining experience. Wait staff seemed very busy probably because of derby.
Unfortunately I found a curly hair in my scallops. Ruined my dinner. No apology from management. Dessert was delicious at least.
Try to get a spot at the bar in the speakeasy if you can! The bartender will keep you entertained throughout your meal.
This was the coolest place!!! ❤️❤️❤️ the doorway! Service was super friendly and the food was amazing!! I wish we lived here so I could go more often!!
Celebrating Derby Week! Delicious food and amazing cocktails. Would suggest 1-2 more servers or bartenders for busy nights, but overall fabulous!!
We loved the atmosphere of the speakeasy. The service was great, staff were very helpful with menu suggestions. We were impressed with the specialty cocktails we tried and we really enjoyed the small plates to share. We will definitely be back.
The atmosphere was great. It was a bit too quiet at 5pm before they got busy. They could use some ambient music. Other than that, service was awesome and the good was fabulous.
Great for our special occasion
William was our bartender and a fabulous one he is!!!!
Excellent service on the patio! Solid food.
The beer pretzels are a unique dish and are the best in town Period!
Love this place for the quiet dinning room. This time we had a business meeting and it was perfect
I wish we had eaten inside, it looked really nice. The patio was lacking in charm. Service was really slow although server was friendly . Food was good.
Love this place and it was so nice to be back after so long
This place was amazing, great atmosphere, knowledgeable and friendly staff that made wonderful drinks catered to our desires. We will most definitely return, highly recommend!
My food was fine. Others in the party of four ordered the pasta primavera and said it was a little bland. Not up to Equus standards.
Two in our group were celebrating birthdays. Their complimentary desserts were delicious. I would have given 5 stars across the board but the pasta primavera caused lower scores in two categories. It still remains one of my favorite restaurants.
We made a reservation via Opentable several days in advance. I selected the option to be in the speakeasy portion of the restaurant and a standard table as opposed to lounge seating. When we arrived we were told very abruptly they were full and we could sit at the bar. A small 6 seat bar with no partitions between guests during a pandemic. The manager offered to put up a partition as our only option to be accommodated and we declined. The hostess Annie at Equus did try to set us up at Lou Lou down the road but it was going to be bar seating as well. We would have been first time guests but will continue to take our business elsewhere.
We had a great girls night here. Strong drinks, delicious food, and fabulous service.
We really enjoyed the evening. Food was wonderful, had the Mahi-Mahi and the New York Strip. Apps and drinks good too. We will definitely be back. Unique, comfortable atmosphere. Staff helpful and knowledgeable.
Super cool place. Food was good, inside ambience was great and the speakeasy is very cool. Drinks were excellent. Service great. We ate outside and that area isn’t near as cool or romantic as inside. So other than that - go!
We went to the Black Rabbit. Ambiance was
Nice but the rest of the experience was lacking. Started the evening with martinis which were watered down. When we returned them they came back the same way. We had beet salads which had no beets and a teeny bit of cheese. We had the 8 ounce hamburgers which ended up by being 4 ounces of meat and 4 ounces of bun. The cheese grits were excellent. Even the ginger ale wasn’t good as it was flat.
We were really disappointed as we had looked forward to trying out this new experience in Louisville.
Great spot for a 1st day, will be definitely be back. Great drinks and atmosphere
It was a great experience. Ask for Will, he was knowledgeable and made sure we we’re well taken care of. Order the shrimp and grits it was fantastic!
Absolutely loved everything: Ambiance, food, service. This is my new favorite spot in Louisville.
We LOVED Black Rabbit. It’s intimate, yet casual. Kalin, our server, was friendly, courteous, and helpful. We started with the Brussels Sprout, totally yummy, salads, etc. were all good. The highlight of the food was the pizza! There are plenty of upscale items on the menu that sounded delicious, but we were in a pizza mood. We can’t wait to go back.
Really enjoyed the experience. Good service and good food (mostly Equus and Jack’s menu). I would suggest having more finger food on the menu given the lounge setup. We’ll be back!
The food was great but the service was sub par at jacks. The black rabbit was fantastic!
It was amazing!
Lilly was great and served some amazing cocktails. The food was super solid and it was all vibes in the speakeasy. Will be back soon.
