Had an 8:15 reservation. After waiting 45 min with still no prospect of being seated we left. Crowded, noisy, overbooked, uncaring.
We had reservations for 8:00 p.m. for an anniversary dinner on a Saturday night. It was 8:45 and we still had not been seated. Had it not been for the bartender recognizing how long we had been there we may never have been seated. After we were seated, the owner graciously apologized and our server was exceptional. The noise level in the restaurant was more than energetic, it was just disturbingly loud and my husband and I had a difficult time hearing each other. I may consider returning on a non-weekend night and if it is not a special occasion.
Great service and food, as always
Wonderful Italian restaurant with exceptional service and terrific atmosphere. Highly recommend.
Another terrific meal at Porcini’s!
Took 30 mins for table even though we had a reservation; goat cheese was delicious; pizza was delish; lighting was perfect
Enjoyed our evening! Had the gnocchi with sausage! Delicious!! Our server Emily was delightful!
Amazing as always! The service and food never disappoint.
It is our go to place. Probably been there 50 times and the food and the service are always 5 star
Porcinis is always great . We have our annual dinner there every Thanksgiving weekend. It was awesome to have the round table in the back so we could all see each other and talk! A Louisville tradition and highly recommended for any occasion
Porcini is reliably outstanding. We've loved this restaurant for 12 years since moving to Louisville. Very comfortable ambiance for us, solid, knowledgeable service and excellent food. We've taken out of town visitors from much larger cities here and they have been impressed every time.
Salut! Here's to hoping that Porcini continues to be one of our short list "go to" restaurants for years to come.
Porcini is consistent in delivering great meals with great service.
Excellent dinner, however my Coca-Cola glass had lipstick on it, a turn off....however out waitress comped is desserts which was lovely! They were apologetic!
Food was great. We were placed right by the bar in a high traffic area which was disappointing. Subsequently, our chairs were constantly being bumped by staff and patrons. Our waiter was a bit unresponsive. Not a typical porcini experience.
We have lived in Louisville for 23 years and eat out at least once most times twice a week and this was our first time here.
Not only was Bud a GREAT sever he was knowledgeable, friendly and engaged us easily without being pushy.
The food was excellent with not one disappointment from drinks to appetizer to entree. When we were finished we were not rushed and were told to stay as long as we’d like. Not always the case at all restaurants.
The restaurant itself was upscale but not stuffy and quiet relaxing and inviting.
Overall a memorable experience we look to experiencing agin soon and bringing us along to enjoy the experience.
We always love coming to Porcini! The food is always authentic and tasty, they have a fantastic wine list and tasty cocktails. The service is always incredibly friendly and attentive. We went this week for my husband's birthday, and they were kind enough to indulge us and had a dirty martini waiting for him at the table when we arrived. For dinner, both of us at the filet and it was *perfect* - perfectly medium rare, charred on the outside, plenty of butter, and the asparagus and gnocchi were also perfectly cooked. It almost ruined us for Thanksgiving!
If you want to be absolutely in love with every dish you order, I recommend Porcini. 2 adults, 2 children
Empty plates, smiles, laughs & memories made. Thank you Tim Coury❤️
Excellent restaurant. Great atmosphere, great food, great service, great prices.
The food was great. Our waiter did an awesome job.
Emily and her fantastic service made the dining experience even better. Looking forward to another visit in the near future!
Always good food service etc
We ordered a little bit too much but it was excellent
Food was good and generous portion. Service could be better and more attentive. Also noticed their water glasses were not properly cleaned and did not wipe the wine glasses spotless. Overall it's worth going back for the food.
We had such an enjoyable time. We felt the food and service both were outstanding and look forward to returning soon.
Nice local place with great ambiance. We were in town from NY and were not disappointed in the quality of the meal. Great dining experience.
The only thing we have to complain about is that we had made prior reservations and when we arrived, prior to our time we still had to wait an hour for our table....
Had a reservation for 7:15 and wasnt seated till after 8pm.. Very disorganized
Amazing meal. Can’t wait to go again next time that I’m in Louisville
Service was awful. Ordered appetizers and never received them until asking if we would ever get them. Then only received 2 of the 3 appetizers. We had a big group but very simple orders. The food took forever to get to the table. The restaurant was not crowded at all so it should t have taken that long!
Yummy but loud!
Hadn't been in years and was looking forward to a birthday dinner here. Unfortunately, I was disappointed. The halibut was great but everything else that was ordered was average at best. Certainly not worth the inflated prices. We won't be going back.
Been here on both trips to the Derby and Breeders cup. Pretty much classic Italian, but always good with great service.
The ambiance is very good, pleasant atmosphere, cozy and friendly. A little too loud for relaxing conversation though. Our food was very good. We would definitely go back.
Disappointing menu, need more variety. Love the ambiance but food was only adequate and pricey for what you get.
Excellent service and food. Always considerate of special diet requests.
It was a madhouse, when we got there, due to a local high school dance. But the staff was in good spirits and working hard to take care of everyone. We were seated within a few minutes of our reservation time, and the service was impeccable.
Waited one hour to be seated
Service left something to be desired. Food was ok- not as good as it use to be.
My wife’s vodka martini was 13.00 each. Server was missing in action for most of the evening.
Cozy atmosphere but overall experience not that great!
The service and food was the best I’ve had. It was our 5 year anniversary and I couldn’t have picked a better place. Food was perfect and the staff is top notch. Very romantic restaurant with friendly service.
