Best wait staff!
Ticking a longtime local tradition off your to-do list as a visitor is almost always a bit on the disappointing side, more a matter of obligation than anything else. In this case, it was an absolute delight. The ambience, the food, and particularly the excellent service, combined to make our dinner a joy from beginning to end. Come for the tradition, but stay for the experience of a great meal.
Our party of 10 had an outstanding meal and service. The bar and dining areas are so beautiful and make you feel as though you’ve stepped back in time. The food was outstanding and the service was excellent. I would highly recommend this restaurant.
My friends and I had a delicious lunch at the Brown Hotel. The staff was very accommodating and friendly. We ordered the Hot Brown and the BLT sandwiches which were very tasty. Can't wait to go back.
It was very nice and the food was excellent! The only complaint is that you have to make reservations and that there is no room service, if this is open.
The service was very good.
One of the best things we did in Louisville. Will be back on my next trip there.
Lovely room with high ceilings and old world charm. The server was great and provided lots of info on the food choices. I had the shrimp & grits which was excellent. The shrimp were plump and not overcooked with a hint of natural sweetness and served with a spicy sauce which was so good. One of the best I’ve ever had.
The Lobby Bar was nice and elegant. The hot brown was delicious and perfect amount of food. The old fashioned on the menu was also a really good old fashioned. And my server, Kris, was very attentive and helpful when deciding what to order. Definitely recommend!
The hot brown is hot and absolutely delicious! Cocktails are very tasty also.
Our server seemed a bit disinterested and was not attentive at all but I noticed the other servers helping other tables seemed different and much more helpful to their tables so it was probably just our server, rather than an issue with the restaurant.
Thankfully, the food quality made up for it.
Food was amazing! Service was outstanding. Romantic atmosphere with darker settings, candlelight and live piano music! Will return soon!
The Brown did not disappoint. It certainly lived up to expectations.
Food, drinks, service and atmosphere were all wonderful. The hotel dining areas are beautiful, plus there was live piano music which was an added bonus. The staff here is extremely friendly and accommodating.
Overpriced. Gorgeous architecture and excellent service. Piano is a bit loud for the space. Menu does not live up to the prices.
Everything was great! Would definitely go back again!
Could not have ask for a better experience. Everything was great
We had a great evening. A few bourbon cocktails, shared a Hot Brown, and saved from for dessert! Service was excellent, drinks rocks and the food was even better than we expected!
The hotel/restaurant was recommended to us by a friend who grew up in Louisville. She told us that we HAD to have The Hot Brown. It was definitely worth it!! We can't wait to return.
The Hot Brown is a must-have when in Louisville, and the Derby Pie is too! The ambiance is wonderful and elegant! My kind of dining!!!!
Awesome! Great to feel like everyone was happy to be there. Everyone seemed to have a genuine caring smile and attitude. It was a great experience.
A spectacular find! Absolutely wonderful food, drinks, and ambiance! The “Hot Brown” is out of this world!
Ordered the Hot Brown and Derby Pie. We were not disappointed.
Wonderful service, beautiful music, and the food was delicious.
Everything was fabulous from the service to the food!!!!
The iconic hot brown was delicious. The cocktails were top notch. Our waiter was very professional.
Fantastic staff and they had a great atmosphere . Went for the Hot Brown and it was ok glad to have the experience . Next time I would try something different. The dessert was fabulous.
Wonderful food and service!
The hot brown is legendary for a reason! Also don't miss out on the derby pie!!
Everyone from the hostess to the waitress was very nice and polite. The food and service were excellent!
Wonderful food and cocktails. Very friendly and attentive staff. Classy atmosphere. Recommend the hot brown and derby pie.
We went for the original Hot Brown and it didn’t disappoint. The service, however, was even more exceptional. I would highly recommend!
I wouldn’t change a thing. As, Grandma (1944) was our guest of honor & it was everything she wanted!
The hotspot is beautiful and full of history. The service was top notch! The “Hot Brown” was as delicious as they say! The Derby Pie was amazing! Remarkable dining experience.
Delightful lunch. Impeccable service, Hot Brown was great but huge, the salmon added to the salad with the pear, cherries, and pecans was the star. Whoever is on the fish/meat station is classically trained, the salmon had the perfectly crisp top you get from leaving it down in a buttery pan for the ideal amount of time without moving it, and then flipping. I love it when chefs get fish right, and this was it! Major props. Some hotel meals are an afterthought, especially at lunch, but not here. Fine dining early.
I had a pleasant solo lunch. The service was exceptional. Patrick even showed me the rooftop.
To say "outstanding" is an under-statement! Everything about our experience was perfect and remarkable! We went for our 5th anniversary dinner while we visited Louisville. The staff made it so special! They were gracious, friendly, funny, personable and truly enhanced the experience. The food was DIVINE! We will be going back, for sure, and I would highly recommend anyone considering eating here to go!
This is always a great place to visit. The food is always excellent and first rate service.
We ordered a Hot Brown and my sister said it was one of the best things she has ever eaten. It was yummy and just like I remembered it from 5 years ago. Beautiful hotel, beautiful lobby. Wish we could have stayed there, but it was all booked with a convention.
