    The best feature of Guacamole NuLu is the atmosphere. It's very energetic with fun music. The service was a bit slow on the upper outside seating area, but I suspect that had to do with our location - our server was friendly and made excellent recommendations. The food quality, quantity, and presentation are very good to excellent. We look forward to trying additional dishes when we return!

    Our group of seven had a great time. We loved the Oaxaca old-fashioned with smoke. The Tres Sopes appetizer is fabulous. Wonderful experience for a birthday celebration. Very fun place with great food and ambience

    So much thought is put into everything. Food, food presentation, staff, music, lighting, ambiance, decor. It’s the coolest addition to the Louisville food scene in quite some time. Book a table in advance, it’s worth the wait.

    The server pushed us to order several times. Main course was delivered to the table prior to the salads. When we mentioned it they were taken back and then delivered them again prior to finishing our salads or cocktails. The server blamed the chef but I don’t think she was factual. Just wanted to turn the table quickly. We have there many times at both the new and old locations. Food is always great but this time the service not only put a damper on the evening but I for the first time felt we didn’t receive value but will go back and try again

    I had been wanting to visit this establishment based on the reviews and decor. Boy was I disappointed. The appetizers were good and the server was friendly. The problem became when we were waiting for our food which was extremely too long and the server explained they were short of staff. We were a table of 4 celebrating my birthday. The manager also came by to tell us why the wait was so long but our food was on the way. We waited over 40 minutes for our food and when it arrived, it was room temperature. This was very disappointing on top of the table across from us was seated 15 minutes after us and their food arrived before ours. They were a party of 3. The birthday song and treat was nice but did not make up for the poor service. I’m unsure if I will return.

    The food and atmosphere are excellent. The staff was very friendly, but the service was slow. We waited for our drinks for an extended amount of time. We had to ask for water refills and those took forever. We asked for more chips before our meal arrived and received them after our dinner was eaten. I hope management works with staff to improve the customer experience. This place is too cool to lose business and we hope service improves.

    Fabulous, but service was slow. Entree came out before salsa appetizer. Carnitas were very fatty, mahi mahi was dry. The ambience is wonderful, great drinks, and food presentation was excellent! I'd try again, but was a little disappointed.

    Food, drink, and atmosphere was yummy and beautiful! Our server seemed to have forgotten about us after he got our food order since we didn’t see him for an entire hour after that…never got another round of drinks. Will be back forsure but hopefully with a different server.

    I love this restaurant. There is plenty of seating indoors and out. There is the main level, and a second level which both have outdoor areas. I do recommend the quest and the nachos. I do plan on booking a reservation before summer is there over.
