    We had the opportunity to introduce some out of town friends to Porcini after a day at the PGA. Shrimp Risotto, Filet with gnocchi and excellent drinks. Definitely one of the top 5 restaurants in Louisville!

    First time Experiencing a dinner of such caliber . Dinner was 150(tip included) for birthday dinner for 2. Along with 3 alcoholic beverages. Two dinners and a salad . First time trying anchovies (on a Caesar salad) … very VERY VERY salty little fish . Salad was 6/10. My husband had a dinner of glazed (honey & blood orange) salmon with some sort of beans w/ spinach & tomato . Salmon was superb !!! Beans were not all the way cooked to our liking . But other than that the meal was great . I had the shrimp linguini … superb . The dessert was a peach pudding/yogurt type of dessert it was SUPER delicious!!! It was a birthday dinner && it exceeded my expectations 100% . Will definitely visit again

    Food and service were very good. The restaurant was extraordinarily noisy. If you want to hear yourself think I wouldn’t recommend this place.

    Everything was perfect except for the menu was downsized secondary to a busy weekend. The management should have informed us at the time of the reservation we would not have the full menu
