Loved it, only knock is finding the proper entrance and route to the restaurant. I would add signage. Other than that loved it!!!

We really enjoyed our reservation overall. Given that they’re a new restaurant (only open 3 months) we did encounter a few hiccups. I ordered a martini that was supposed to be garnished with lemon and olives but they missed the olives. All of the items listed to be available on the raw bar were not. We also ordered off the raw bar and boxed up more than half of it to bring it home and at the end of the night we didn’t receive the bag with our raw bar items in it. I was really saddened by this as I was looking forward to having it for dinner tonight! Also we ordered the sundae bar and while we got sauce we received no other toppings.

However, our waitress was wonderful, quality of the food was as well, and we loved the ambiance. Overall pleased just wish I would’ve received our leftovers as seafood tends to come at a premium at steakhouses.

Facility is beautiful. I’m sure it would be a a fun environment during live racing. Service was very attentive. The food was not good. Rather terrible in fact. For prices at that level, the food should be outstanding.I wanted it to be great, but I was very disappointed. I don’t think it will last unless the food improvs dramatically.

Wonderful service, great food and what a killer venue to have such an amazing restaurant! My food was perfect, my waitress and back waiter were stellar, and everyone at Matt Winns from the gate to the table showed my wife and I the best customer experience you could ever imagine. I came in town from Charleston SC to celebrate my birthday and WE know what exceptional dinning experiences are. This restaurant made them all look subpar! Thank you for letting me share my birthday with you and I’ll definitely be back when I make it back to horse and bourbon country!

Impeccable service from arrival to departure with beautiful surroundings throughout. Our amazing server David was well versed with suggestions and descriptions on both cocktail pairings and menu selections. All of our mains were cooked to requested temperature along with seasoned to perfection. We ordered starters , several sides and the gnocchi to share on top of our mains so plenty to take home at the end of the evening. The service carts, both seafood and dessert, were like nothing we had experienced in our travels. The evening was capped off with a wrapped bourbon ball to take home and a gift bag full of local goodies. We all cannot wait for a return visit in the very near future.

Recently opened and an excellent edition to Louisville's culinary experience, Matt Winn's sits atop Churchill Downs looking out across the track offering sweeping views of the grounds and a modest view of the city. We were actually lucky enough to enjoy a rather forceful autumn storm after watching the sunset while enjoying our meal. There is a superb selection of bourbon as well as wine and the bartenders & wait staff were amazing. Our food was succulent, timely, and in line cost wise with what you would expect from a top tier dinning establishment located in Louisville. We've already made plans to come back again and bring a couple more guests with us as this has jumped up into our top five within the city.

Matt Winn’s Steakhouse is now quintessential Louisville. If you have friends in from out of town, a special occasion, or just want to treat yourself to a fantastic meal - this is your place. The food, drinks, and service were all top notch. The ambiance and setting is impossible to replicate. I don’t write reviews often - but this one deserves the best. Thanks to the friendly staff and managers for treating us so well and ensuring our visit was a memorable one.

The steaks were OK but for the price point can find better in Louisville. The sides we had asparagus, macaroni and cheese, and potatoes were nothing to brag home about. I can cook better sides myself. Service was good and fast, however, food was lacking.

The restaurant was not busy but seemed understaffed. We waited for 15 minutes or longer before our server took our drink order and much longer for our food order. When our steaks came out cold. The flavor was okay but underwhelming for the price.

Not busy at all and our steaks came out cold... We ordered a 6 ounce fillets and compared to other places the steaks were smaller.. The potatoes for a side was average at best. Not the best meal and expensive.. Your paying for the ambience as the place looks amazing.

We were blown away by our experience at Matt Winns. It completely met the 5 star reviews off OpenTable that drew me into to booking a reservation for our anniversary. The ambience was perfect with the red carpet entrance and the views over the track. Our steaks were cooked perfectly and our side dishes were amazing. Staff were very attentive without being overbearing. This is now our favorite high end restaurant for special occasions.

This is an exceptional restaurant. The service and the food are some of the best louisville has to offer. From the crab cakes to the ribeye to the dessert cart my wife and I enjoyed every moment. The service was equally excellent and we were well looked after. We can’t wait to bring friends for our next meal.

First time dining at Matt Winns, so we didn't really know what to expect, but it was very good. The view overlooking the track was beautiful. The bourbon and wine selection is excellent. My wife and I both had steaks which were cooked perfectly. The chef stopped by our table a couple times to check on us.

This was a very impressive experience! They probably have the most extensive high end bourbon list I have ever seen. The food was excellent and the atmosphere is hard to beat. It's right up there with Ruby's and Ruth's Chris. I will definitely go back!
