    I am sad that the Rivue is closing. It is a great place to have a brunch and look out to the city views.

    The Brunch food tasted like it had be reheated from a previous day. It was dried out, lacked flavor, and stale. I know the Rivue is closed now. It was a very disappointing experience.

    The meal was fine but it is extremely expensive for a brunch. The only reason we booked the table was for the revolving floor (our kids were excited about it), but we were told we could not sit there because other people made reservations months ago. As we sat and watched two half-empty rooms rotate for an hour after we sat down, it was very frustrating since we clearly could have sat in that part of the restaurant.

    Outstanding food and views. The oysters are always so fresh, I highly reccomend them. We come here to celebrate our anniversary and they always make sure we have complementary champagne to toast. Also the tournedos of beef was the best filet I have ever had as it was topped with lump crab. Also, the goat cheesecake is by far my favorite dessert and I hope that when they reopen in spring they keep these items on the menu!

    Great location with parts that rotate so you get a view. Some items had been on buffet too long-chicken very dry. Was good, but feel there are better ones. Hopefully when they reopen they will make some changes. Grits very good as was waffles. Didn’t get omelette-the omelette station was practically in a closet-only had one person making them for everyone.

    We sat in center section where you go up flight of stairs. Not good for people sitting with back to window and rather hot upstairs. Sound from piano also seemed to be louder than on main level. Can't wait for revamp on this restaurant. I certainly hope you plan to keep the 2 revolving round floors. That is great! Look forward to seeing remodel. Entire restaurant needs to be opened up to all windows on all sides from the minute you get off elevator, instead of currently having to go up 2 narrow hallways. Need good bar that's not in hallway!

    Romantic date night for a couple from out of State. Rotating restaurant with fantastic views. Entrees were well prepared and delicious! Classy place and we were under dressed. We were still made to feel welcome and service was great. We had a very thoughtful, helpful, and wonderful waitress.

    This was my first time at The Revue. I was very impressed. The atmosphere was amazing, the pianist was wonderful and played the entire time (it was a bit loud, but we were seated right next to the piano so, it was understandable), our waiter, Carl, was a doll, and the food definitely worth every penny! The staff was very accommodating. We had a reservation and we arrived late due to mix up on my part but they held our table. I definitely would recommend coming here and I will definitely be back.

    We planned a last trip to Rivue before it closes for remodeling timed for sunset on Longest Day Of Year, Summer Solstice. Instead of sunset we got a moody thunder/lightning storm that created a very romantic atmosphere as we viewed the Ohio River and Louisville skyline from all angles. Patrick was a wonderful server. Attentive but not hovering. Oysters on half shell, wedge Caesar/mixed greens salads and NY Strip that we split were perfect. Good cocktails and wine, and we loved the pianist.

    That was a very special place to celebrate our 40th anniversary - thank you! (And thanks for the complimentary champagne!) Our water was Carl and he treated us very well. The food was excellent, and the chocolate bourbon bombe was a perfect finish!

    When I discovered pieces of Saran Wrap in my salad after chewing on it, I let our server know and her response was “yeah that’s from where the salad was wrapped earlier” as if saying “yeah that’s normal”... for the price, that’s completely unacceptable.
