We celebrated Valentine’s Day here. We both had the pork shank. It was absolutely delicious! The service was excellent. We got in at exactly our reservation time with no wait. I would highly recommend.

We were seated in the back room, which was fine. However, the restaurant was hosting a large party in the main area and needed additional furniture which, for some reason they stored outside. The temperature outside was 16 and twice staff walkers in and propped the door open to retrieve the furniture allowing frigid air to flow in. Never did they apologize for the obvious inconvenience. When a customer asked them to please stop propping the door open they looked at the customers in the room as if we were an intrusion into their work day and went about their activities. I understand they had work to do, but were very rude to the customers that were in attendance. probably won’t return as their are many options in Louisville for dining.

The Vietnamese salad and pimiento cheese toast were excellent. The bean soup and Ruben sandwich were not as good. We had a good time.

Kudos to the excellent waitstaff -- especially Madison! -- who served us so well. Three of us were celebrating 50 years of friendship -- dear friends I met when I arrived in Louisville in January 1970. And Napa River Grill made sure we had perfect, easy service -- excellent and delicious food and drinks -- and topped the evening off with a gorgeous "Happy Anniversary" treat for each of us. Thank you so much! (And P.S. -- Napa River Grill is terrific for luncheons, too!)

Great service. The lunch combo was reasonably priced with good size portions. The service was great and they provided a free dessert for someone in our party who had a birthday. Would go back again and will tell others.

We had a fun girls night. Service was very good. I also enjoyed my entree. However it was the special and I had no idea it would cost $40. I think when listing the specials it would be good to mention the price. While I did enjoy it, I would have not chosen such an expensive dish.

We went for brunch. It's a buffet but one of the best and most complete you'll find! The price point was perfect and who doesn't like affordable mimosas with brunch!! Looking forward to trying lunch and dinner.

Food and ambiance were very good. The server was less than stellar. When she infrequently appeared she smiled. But she had to be reminded to refill our tea glasses, and we had to ask her for a dessert menu? Did she not want us to buy a dessert???

Server was nice. Happy hour drinks only applied to bar seats. Sat us really close to another party that had been drinking a bit and was rowdy. Food was good, but not outstanding.
