RIVUE Restaurant and Lounge
Lounge opens at 5:00pm, Monday - Saturday.
My second time at Rivue, this time for brunch. Our service was exceptional, the food was plentiful and tasty, and the view is lovely. I recommend this Sunday brunch to anyone looking for a meal with plenty of options with excellent service and a pleasant atmosphere.
The price was not that bad either considering the service and selection.
The air conditioner was NOT working - the guests (including my husband and I) were sweating and folks were complaining. The waiters were sweating and unsanitarily wiping sweat from their foreheads as they served us. This was Father’s Day, and I was embarrassed and a bit humiliated by the experience. The food was not as good either - it was over cooked or not rotated often enough, and the guy making the omelets was very slow b/c he had to make scrambled egg orders, too. It’s odd that scrambled eggs would not be served with other foods. And lastly, the soft drinks were flat. We tried sprite first, then coke. Both were flat. We then asked for orange juice, which was fine. The problem, though, is that we didn’t get a refill and was therefore forced to drink the hot water (ice melted immediately in glass b/c it was so hot in there). I’ve been there before and things were different. Sunday, however, was a bust!
The air conditioner was not working. It was very hot and stuffy. The high chairs do not have any restraints. My granddaughter was able to slide through and get hurt
We ate here 18 months ago and the food was fabulous. This time it was just good. Maybe they have a new chef. The view is still spectacular.
The cold pea soup was great. The pork Tomahawk was really good. The vegetable sides were high-quality. The service was great. The Duck did not appear to have duck anatomy. It was formed but somehow had skin on it. It tasted good, but I would have preferred to have known in advance that it was not a breast or a leg or thigh Etc. Or maybe I don't know my duck anatomy so well!
I really did like the effort they put into presentation. We will definitely be going back.
Food was prepared perfectly, service was impeccable... views were breathtaking
Wonderful experience! Food was delicious, service was great, & ambience was incredible! Loved it. Would definitely go back & highly recommend.
Great view, good food, friendly server.
We were in Louisville for a business meeting and took a group to dinner.
It was perfect.
Great overall, would return again. The good selection was great, and a wide variety.
We were in town for a long weekend with our teenage sons so all you can eat places are perfect for them. I am not a fan of buffets normally but this is not a traditional buffet for sure. It's gourmet and delicious. The variety is what makes it a winner. I had shrimp cocktail, cheese grits and arugula salad. The boys had biscuits and gravy, sausage, omelettes and fresh fruit.
We all left happy.
Please have chef taste the food. The food on the buffet did not seem fresh. Rather disappointing after all the great things we had heard and previous dinner experiences. Maybe lunch is not this chef's exepertise
The chicken tasted flavorless. The mashed potatoes were great. The brocculi was ok. My cocktail was good. It was overpriced for the portions provided. I won’t be back for dinner but I’ll consider the brunch.
Need more food selection. I over paid for food (that wasn't worth the money). Lobster dinner. One small piece of Lobster, 4 small potatoes and 3 shrimp. I could have went to red lobster and paid the same amount for 6 shrimps on a stick, lobster tail, salmon, a vegetable and salad, plus an order of shrimp scampi. I know, because I order it every time.
Excellent Atmosphere .. Piano music superb... Our server was amazing... attentive and helpful. Thai Lobster was above average. Halibut, Pork and Roast Chicken Entrees outstanding. Desserts ... cheesecake, chocolate cake, and pineapple/raspberry sorbet -- OUTSTANDING...
Our experience at Rivue was wonderful!! We were celebrating our wedding anniversary and I can't think of a better place we could have gone. The ambiance, service, and view were all spectacular!
Everything was perfect. Nice proposal though my now fiancé. A little pricey for the amount of food, but still very good.
Everything was very nice. Food was good, service was great. Views were exceptional. Live piano music was a nice touch too.
The piano player was excellent and added to the view and atmosphere!
Prompt service, great view, great food, including dessert. Great atmosphere.
Waiter recommended scallops for appetizers and told us to get the $26.00 portion since there were 4 of us. Appetizer came in this large rectangular white plate with 4 small pieces of scallops and 3 pieces of broccoli florets !!!! 1 bite size seared small scallops for each person, really?!!! Even worst on dish portion was the $39.00 Thai Lobster since waiter described 2 lbs lobster tail with 4 jumbo pieces shrimp with small potatoes in chili broth. When the food came in this big white plate, it was just HALF of a LOBSTER in a SHELL with 3 regular shrimps, 4 baby potatoes swimming in broth!!!! Maybe the whole dish weighed 2 lbs including the broth. Expected lobster tail without the shell! $39.00 for half of a lobster in its shell??? What a rip off!!!! Sorry, if you’re hungry, don’t go to The Rivue. Never going back there again. What a joke! A rip off!!!! We left this place STILL HUNGRY!!!!!
My rate of overall satisfaction is Fair due to thd poor service we received. Our wait for a waitress was unacceptably long. To make matters worst she assumed my change was her tip.
We left underwhelmed.
In fairness I must say the atmosphere is beautiful and Views are spectacular. The food was delicious.
We’ve eaten at RIVUE any number of times, and we’re delight. AVOID DERBY WEEK!!!
Pleasant dining experience. Beautiful view. Service was above par, but nothing spectacular. Brunch buffet was clean and kept food hot.
Drove from Indianapolis, IN for Sunday brunch. Have visited many times before but wanted to share my experience with other others. As always the staff,food, and views were fantastic. Pete our server was so helpful and friendly. My party will definitely return again! Thank you all for the experience!
Such an amazing view of the city! The room spun around so you could have an entire view!
I had a great meal and an amazing dining experience. It was very romantic and quiet. I went for a birthday date and the tai lobster was a very tasty meal!
It was a great experience! I will be back!
My husband and I were celebrating 20 years of marriage and we couldn't have found a better place. It was classy, romantic and had gorgeous views. The food was very tasty and the piano playing was at the right volume setting a perfect date night mood. We loved every minute of it. The staff was very nice and served extremely well, very attentive. Thank you for making this a beautiful night we will always remember.
Super busy out of a lot of menu options and stopped doing candy bar was disappointed this time around big time.
Service was slow. Piano was great.
It is a potentially fabulous destination but has become tired over the years. Apparently a significant upgrade and redesign planned for the new year. It will hopefully recapture some of its prior grandeur.
Our server Katie and the trainee MJ were GREAT. Both were funny and VERY friendly. They made our anniversary a lot of fun and of course the food was GREAT. We WILL be back again.
Went here for our 3 year wedding anniversary and the staff and food was great. I am a chicken tender and fried guy, but I tried the Duck meal and it was awesome. The flan they brought us for dessert was good as well. I would recommend this place for any event or special occasion. Dinner and a great view in a rotating dining room.
We went for drinks, appetizers and the sunset. Well it was very cloudy, but the service was so bright! They were very accommodating to our group of 10 and sat us in the rotating diner area and not the bar as we expected. Perfect reviews from and for everyone that night.
Had a great brunch; loved the view; service was awesome. Definitely recommend.
Great food. Awesome view. And a very good piano player. This is a Louisville must do.
It was so cold that I had to put on my husband's suit jacket. Prices are really unreasonably high. They no longer do the candy cart...BOO! The waitress (Courtney) was outstanding. The piano player was very good, albeit a tad bit loud...the music was intrusive rather than background.
The restaurant was great with a amazing view of the Ohio River.
Going to broadway series play
It was a very good experience but I had a request for piece of birthday cake as we were there for my wife's birthday.
