    room was cold and boring, music was too loud, service was absent, 'house made' pasta was grey/green and lacked flavor, the sunkchokes were good, but there weren't enough to save this dog's dish of a pasta plate, shishito's were cooked well, aoili was ok, salmon was cooked well, but small portion, overall poor value and experience

    My husband and I had a wonderful Valentine's Day dinner at Toogie's Table. We started at the bar with drinks. The bartender was very personal and really knowledgeable about the restaurant. The wait staff was friendly but very busy, so it was hard to get refills (literally my only complaint). The food was amazing. Could cut the filet with a butter knife. We cant wait to go back.

    Hello all , I decided to take my wife of 25 years to an early valentines dinner this past Saturday night. We both knew of the place because we live in the same country and had eaten at the restaurant when it was a different name, so we wanted to give it a try . The location is great, in our opinion, because it is across the street from my old Kentucky home. I thought we could get a quiet table for two how ever the gentlemen that seated us must not have read my request because he put us behind a table of four who did not mind sharing everything with everyone in the restaurant so to say the least we were so glad to see theme leave how ever it was not soon enough. Then the food, we were both hoping the food would make up for the rude table near us but to say the least we were not impressed the only good part was our waitress she was great. However we will not return and we only live about seven miles from the restaurant so I guess it just saddens us because we wanted to have a nice place to go and enjoy a meal from time to time. Thanks, The Kessler's

    There are a great many restaurant options in the Bardstown, KY area- this quiet, unassuming "motel restaurant" is by far the best when it comes to food, ambiance, cocktails, and service. Highly recommend for dates and special occasions- reservations are worth it!

    We loved Toogies Table! After reading mixed reviews, we were hesitant and anxious to try it out! I have many fond memories as a young child going to Kurtz's with my Pap Paw! Toogie's is nothing like Kurtz's. The atmosphere is different, updated, simple, but nice! The service was top notch! We arrived after a bourbon tour an hour before our planned reservation time so we headed upstairs to the bar! The bar is well stocked and the cocktails were awesome! We had the country ham trio at the bar and it was amazing! It was beautiful and delicious! The bartender was so nice, I am sorry I don't remember her name, but she was great! We headed downstairs at 6 enjoyed an amazing dinner, chicken spaetzle for my husband and short rib for myself! Both were amazing and the portions were generous! There was an intermezzo course of two stuffed olives that were so good! I could have eaten a dozen of them. Dessert was a butter pecan sundae. It was on the smallish size which we thought was perfect for sharing after such a great meal! The service was amazing, not to overbearing, just perfect! I am terrible with names, but I think her name was Melanie! We will be back and will spread the word about Toogie's Table! Keep up the good work!

    Toogies Table started out as quite creative in culinary options. Unfortunately something has definitely changed. Mixed drink quality of basic bourbon drinks such as an old fashion were undeniable. The rosey cheek drink was excellent. The tavern burger was med rare and extremely greasy. The aoli was flavorless and failed to be an acceptable complement to the meal. The simple potato wedges were served cold and hard without seasoning. The salmon kimchi was rated as very good if kimchi is something you enjoy. The braised lamb entree in tomato sauce with noodles was a poor fit for the delicate flavor of lamb and its lean fat profile. The schnitzle was dry and heavily coated with flour and fried. Our desert was a complete waste. We ordered blackberry cobbler. This was not a cobbler at all but a dry, seedy, crumble, jam.. awful. We had reservations for 630 arrived on time but it took 2 hours to get drinks and food. There was not a value for the dollar and bar tenders must learn basic quality bourbon drinks.

    If we could move in and have them cook every meal for us, we would!! Everything was amazing! We have not had a meal that good in a very long time! I cannot praise them enough. From the welcome greeting, to the service to the goodbye, 100% recommend!

    The food was absolutely phenomenal. We got there when they first opened and it felt like it took a bit for them to get up and running. I ordered a drink that didn’t come until after our appetizer arrived. Which, had I known I wouldn’t have ordered it. We were sat by the door and it was very chilly as it was cold outside. Otherwise, I really enjoyed the experience and as previously stated, the food was phenomenal and we will definitely be back.

    Enjoyed the cocktails, mustard pasta, fried chicken and waygu burger. Cobbler was great as well. Main floor entrance was cold and not cozy decor, but the best part was our server who handled so many questions about the menu and preparation in stride. Genuinely wanted to answer even the tough questions.

    We contacted the restaurant twice since our Dec 28 dinner hoping to discuss the concern about our experience with a manager but received no call back so I am instead writing a review. We came into town for a holiday vacation and stayed at The Bourbon House which had recommended Toogie's for fine dining. At dinner, we received two different menus and the short pasta dish I wished to order had different ingredients on the different menus (squash on one menu). The server didn't know which menu was accurate for the evening. My husband ordered the chicken and spaetzle that was recommended online and by the host at our lodging and was told they were out of it! Our reservation was for 6:45 pm. We waited 1 full hour for our food. In the meantime, we received 2 amuse bouches (one olive each per amuse). The actual meals we ordered were delicious (burger and short pasta). We were looking forward to ordering dessert and as soon as the server came to remove our plates she plopped down the bill at our table. The server never asked us if we would like dessert! The food price did not reflect the overall quality of the meal as excellent service should accompany prices like this. Unfortunately, our holiday travel dinner which was supposed to be a special meal left us feeling very frustrated. When we returned to Bourbon Manor we learned that another couple had eaten here one hour later and had the chicken spaetzel! Their meal took so long that Toogie's brought them an appetizer (that they didn't order) and then brought them a dessert ( that they didn't order) on the house and also comped a portion of their meal! So, overall, we were very disappointed that the poor service ruined some very good food and then never received a call back from the manager despite leaving a message with my contact info regarding our meal that evening.

    Will this restaurant is unusual to find in Bardstown Ky it's limited chef curated menu was underwhelming. Presentation excellent, taste may have been underappreciated by this more ordinary fair diner. Best of luck finding a consistent cliental, that maybe appreciates the finer nature of the offerings.

    Second trip to Toogie's Table. Won't be our last. So many menu items we still want to try. The fall salad was delicious. As was my wife's Arugula salad. Both of us had the hog schnitzel. I'm thinking next time I'll have the Sunday gravy.

    This was our first time to visit for our party of 4. The appetizer of Blistered Shishito Peppers with everything spice, berbere aioli & sea salt was delicious! sauce. I also had a delicious arugula, apple salad. I had the Sunday Gravy pasta dish of bucatini noodle, tomato braised lamb, Parmesan and garlic streusel which was great! My husband had Wagyu short rib with fingerling potatoes, pickled carrot and elderberry beef jus. The short rib would almost melt in your mouth, so tender and delicious, however he said the potatoes were too spicy and salty for him. One of our friends at the table had the 14oz Bardstown Hog Schnitzel Entree and it was very tender and delicious and almost covered the entire plate. The other friend had the Chicken Spaetzle Dumplings Entree and enjoyed it except for the strong mustard flavor, however the server warned her that the dish did have a strong mustard flavor. I ordered the Blackberry Cobbler and ice cream to share before heading over to see A Carol at My Old Kentucky Home. None of us cared for the cobbler and the ice cream, the ice cream was a butter pecan or something other vanilla which you would expect with cobbler. We enjoyed our dinner at Toogies Table and will definitely go back again. The service was great and the food was top notch!

    No entry accommodation for mobility impaired people. No help from restaurant - other guests helped me. Service was understated, not friendly, not especially efficient. I was a single diner - and I was greeted with a not so pleasant tone about being the only one in my party. Food was good, but not as great as I expected from website.

    The wait staff suggested we let her choose our meal and share which was perfect for a large party. Everything was excellent and would definitely return. Interesting food combinations which were all tasty and intriguing. Drinks and wine selection was also quite good. Probably no where else in Bardstown with this type of food.

    Best meal during this trip to the area. Menu prices seem a little high, but the quality of the entrees were very high. Not the prettiest place in town, but some of the best food you will find.

    Don’t let the unassuming exterior question what is inside. This is a top shelf restaurant in any market. The food is freshly creative and inspiring. Everything we had from starters to dessert was exceptional. The staff is warm and friendly. The bourbon list is very solid. Mixed cocktails were delicious. Give the a try.

    Ate here for my husband's birthday. Our service was not great. He and I ordered the fried chicken. He loved it, I thought it was okay. It was served a la carte and could have used a carb. We ordered a salad to split and got a squash dish that I liked, my husband did not. Still not sure it was a salad. We saw a salad ordered at another table and it was beautiful. Our son ordered the burger and really liked it. I had the old fashioned and it was too strong for me. (That's probably on me, not the bartender). My husband had the sweet tea and said it was mediocre at best. The restaurant was clean, brightly lit and has a cozy atmosphere. The gentleman who took us to our seats was lovely.

    Ambience is that of a glorified break room. Food is overpriced. Butternut squash bisque was tasty; rest of meal was so so. Not sure what this restaurant is trying to be. High prices without pleasing surroundings and excellent food is not a winning formula in my opinion. Won’t return.
