    My wife and I had a wonderful experience celebrating our Anniversary at Brendon’s Catch 23. We enjoyed our dinner and my wife ordered the Baby Greens Salad and I had the Wedge Salad. Our entrees were the seared yellowfin tuna and the chicken chop. Both were excellent choices and very delicious. Jamie was our server and he did an excellent job of taking care of us that evening. We would recommend this restaurant for any special occasion.

    Our server was great, but the food just wasn't as good as previous experiences. And the prices have nearly doubled on some of our favorite items. I understand supply chain and other inflation issues are driving price increases, but I'm just not sure the food is good enough for the increased prices, especially given the unease being in downtown Louisville these days.

    In Louisville for Thanksgiving and stayed for a few days to explore Louisville. Went to the KY Derby museum and barn tour. We’re looking for some great food and saw Brendon’s across the street from our hotel the Seelbach. Wesley was a wonderful waiter and directed us in a great choice of dinner and since we were beat and still stuffed from Thanksgiving dinner did not flinch when we wanted to split the entree. Have to try the fried prawn and the fried lobster tails!

    Top notch restaurant, Staff was excellent and extremely professional. Ambiance was a large open area with a well placed bar area as you come in the door. There was a constant low level conversation buzz, but it added to the atmosphere of the large open concept. Highly recommend, chef suggestions on menu!!!

    Our waiter Jamie was incredibly personable and had wonderful recommendations. This is the best restaurant in downtown Louisville hands down. We had the salmon and the lump crab cakes with the Arancini to start off. Everything was first class. We will be back again and we hope to have Jamie as our server next time, too.

    By far one of the best restaurants we have been to. We are foodies and have gone to so many fancy places... this one... wow!! Outstanding food. The crab cakes were so fresh, and I don't even know how they stayed together without a lot of breading (like many restaurants)... it was amazing. The A5 Wagyu... perfection. Enough said on that. Service?? Wes was amazing. So personable and spoke so highly of this place while walking us through the menu- and he was spot on each time. It was our anniversary and this place made it even more special... Wes asked the Executive Chef to meet us- we were so honored!! The Executive Chef was such a humble and wonderful person. If you want quality food with amazing service from the time you walk in the door, this is the place. Without a doubt. Thank you to the wonderful people at this location...

    A great meal for both my wife and I! Our server MJ was outstanding, prompt, polite, informative and friendly. My meal was Crab Cakes, asparagus, and mashed potatoes. The crab cakes were super delicious, very flavorful, and generous serving size. I am not a huge fan of asparagus, but ate it all due to its excellent taste. It is hard to say that was the best mashed potatoes I have ever eaten, since they are pretty much the same. However these were outstanding! My wife's Sea Bass was also excellent as I did sneak a taste. I also had a cocktail, Brendon's "1081", which is there version of an Old Fashion, Bourbon with Kahlua and bitters. I enjoyed the first one so much, I had another for dessert. We will go back, and request MJ!!!

    Staff was nice. But uninformative. We were seated 55 minutes after our reservation time Then no server came to our table until 10 minutes after we were seated when I went back to the check in and told him to please send us a server. The server that came was inexperienced. Next, we ordered and they were out of 4 different menu items we wanted - they had no wedge salad, no skirt stead, no fried lobster and no barbecue beef. Really its true. They brought a different bottle of wine than we ordered. I think they totally mis-read the busyness of the weekend and it was terribly handled by the management. Close to one of the worst restaurant experiences I have had in years.

    Had to wait to be seated although we had reservations, after being seated ordered a drink from the bar and took 20 minutes. Martini glass was half full. Inquired about it and was told it was measured correctly. Ordered food waited 40 minutes for food. Atmosphere was very noisy with no background music. Food was good.

    We were passing through and had the good fortune to eat here. They fly in fish fresh every day and it shows. The Halibut and Salmon were mouthwatering. we had them both simply grilled and had the asparagus and truffle fries as sides (large enough for more than two to share). Joshua, our server, did and outstanding job guiding us through the menu. Salads are sharable, and we enjoyed the Caesar. Great Cocktail and Wine and Beer list. Just a real treat.
