Steakhouse

Repeal is Whiskey Row’s only oak-fired steakhouse, located at the birthplace of J.T.S. Brown & Sons Bourbon Company in Louisville. A stylish departure from a traditional steakhouse, Repeal uses a wood-fired grill stoked daily with reclaimed American Oak bourbon barrels. Repeal is a tribute to the Repeal of Prohibition – a place to see, be seen and celebrate the rich tradition of the building in which it resides.

First off, our table was ready at our reserved time, great atmosphere, great bourbon selection at the bar, among others. Our server Rebecca, was attentive, very knowledgable about the restaurant history, as well as the menu, and was very alert and attentive to us. Our food was outstanding, from our appetizers to our entrees, but it's the amount of time it took for us to get our entrees, is why I couldn't give five stars. Full disclosure, I like my steaks rare, and while I don't expect a flaming hot steak, I do expect it to be warmer than room temperature. That being said, it was delicious. Next time I'm in Louisville, I will absolutely come back;

So we sat there for over an hour before asking where our food is. Immediately he brought out an appetizer we had ordered...which was apparently sitting there on a hot plate. We returned it when it didn't taste fresh. Our drinks sat empty with nobody checking if we wanted another round. Food finally came a half hour later and the steak was cold. We left after that, the whole place was a disaster.

Everything we ordered was good, just not fantastic or the best in Louisville. Louisville has so many great dining destinations, I guess I’m just spoiled.

Nice atmosphere, connected off the main lobby of a boutique hotel in Louisville. Food was really good, service was decent. I maybe expected a little more from the entire experience....considering the venue and pricing. But overall, I'd recommend it.

Cocktails mixed just right and wine / spirit list was amazing. Even with the Derby being just over and I am sure they had been overwhelmed for days, the meal and service was amazing. Rebecca our server was awesome and Grant the Manager checked on us a few times. In short JUST GREAT !

The 3 of us were not disappointed. Easy walk from the Marriott/convention hall. Excellent apps and entrees. I thought the prices were on par with the big steakhouses or better. Make reservations with confidence in being happy.

Quality of food was topnotch, and atmosphere is great.

It took a little while to get drinks and then each course was slow in coming out. It took us over 2 hours to get a burger and salad with a crab cane appetizer. It’s not a place I will return to anytime soon with all the other options in the area. I’m sure others find it fabulous but it just didn’t measure up in my book for the price.

Food was delicious, a prices were a tad higher than your average upscale steakhouse, especially their wine. Would go back without hesitation.

It was hard for our table of four to converse. Avoid the premium wines-by-the-glass. Six ounces of nothing special for $30+. I would go again.

Food was disappointing in part because menu descriptions seemed to be inaccurate and just didn’t seem like the quality you would expect for the price. For example the brunch chicken fried chicken did not mention there was a Buffalo/spicy sauce on the chicken and very little of the actual gravy you normally expect with this dish. Not sure the Waygu burger was actually Wagyu. Servers were friendly but service was very slow, possibly due to staff shortages in the kitchen and bar, but it should not take 30 minutes to get a Bloody Mary or 50 minutes to get your entrée.

The food was good, not great! It took 50 minutes from the time we ordered until breakfast was brought to the table. Even with that amount of time, I received bacon and not the sausage I had ordered. They did rectify that very quickly and the sausage was very good. I would recommend against ordering bacon, two small strips that looked soggy were on the plate. As said, the location and ambiance are good, I may try Repeal again, maybe for dinner, but certainly not before an event. If an easy breakfast order takes 50 minutes, how long would a steak dinner take?
