As pescatarians, the veggie dishes were not treated as well as I’d have hoped. All good, but the veggies were a bit underdone, lacked seasoning, and some flavors were very muted. Cocktails were fantastic. Service was fantastic. Prawns were fantastic.

Pricey but the food was not that great. Taste combinations were creative but not very successful: sour risotto and spicy hot chocolate desert ... chowder was also disappointing ($16 appetizer) being excessively rich and having some piece of very chewy shellfish in there (not sure what it was).
Service was friendly but ineffective: entree arrived before we were done with our appetizer.
No extra fee for splitting anything that you like.

Hi Blanca. My apologies your first experience with us was not up to the standards we are looking to set. We are working the Chowder dish to improve it and always need to hear the critical points so we can continue to improve. I hope you give us another chance and please feel free to directly reach out to me anytime we may offer our services. Best wishes. Tim Quinlan Senior Restaurant Manager Everyday Kitchen

We made an impromptu road trip to Louisville for our anniversary weekend, not realizing it was the same days as a major post-quarantine concert that had nearly every hotel and restaurant in the city booked solid. We had researched a list of great cocktail bars and restaurants to hit, but upon arrival discovered none of them had availability while we were there.

However one place WITH availability kept popping up over and over in our Open Table and Yelp searches, like a persistent little puppy jumping and wagging its tail for attention saying “Pick me! Pick me!” So, disappointed with striking out at our first, second, third, etc choices, we elected to give it a chance…

We are SO glad we did! Everyday Kitchen turned out to be a fantastic serendipitous choice - apparently it is the new creation of the head chef from two of the notable Louisville places that were booked solid for days. The food was truly creative and amazing, as were the fantastic cocktails. Based on recommendations from the staff, we got great selections. Seriously - the memory of those incredible seared mushrooms will haunt me forever, along with the fantastic flavor of the smoked okra.

Most importantly, staff were truly excellent. From the moment we entered, they were cheerfully attentive, engaging, and knowledgeable. Then when they learned it was our anniversary and that we picked them after being intrigued by their politely persistent presence, they all went above and beyond to assure our evening there would be great.

Everyday Kitchen - with its lovely decor, amazing food, and terrific staff - turned what started as a disappointing night into a delightful, delicious evening with remarkable service and extraordinary food.

We saw this restaurant the last time we passed through NULU. Thought we’d give it a try. We were not disappointed. High quality food. Well prepared, good seasoning and quality. They did a real good job with fitting up the restaurant space. It’s beautifully done with open floor plan with plenty of nice seating areas. Bar area is large and nicely set up.

This is the best brunch our group (12 people) have ever had! The food and service was spot on. Everything the Chef prepared has like a bite of heaven. The tomato pie was one of the best things I have ever put in my mouth! I have brunched all over the word and this was seriously the best food I’ve ever had.

The Chef’s dinner menu is absolutely to die for as well, but I so hope they will do more pop-up brunches in the future.

We had an absolutely fantastic experience at Everyday Kitchen! We were celebrating our anniversary and were met with complimentary glasses of champagne upon seating. They have a nice ambiance, service was top notch, but the real star of the night was the food. We had the tartine of the day (duck confit, cheese, pickled tomatoes) that was outstanding, as well as the prawns and the roasted beast of the day (pork in a duck fat BBQ sauce with squash latkes and slaw). Everything was seasoned to perfection and we were both licking our plates. The entire meal was truly exceptional and I can’t recommend this new spot highly enough!
