RIVUE is a great representation of Louisville. The sunset was tremendous with full views of the city and river. Service and menu items were top notch. The perfect dinner prior to theater outing.

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.

RIVUE has potential but missed the mark. After being seated on a slow Thursday night we waited 10 minutes for the server assistant to give us water. When the server came, she asked “what do you want promptly”. Being new to the restaurant, we asked about the menu, but were told “it was all pretty good”. The gnocchi was swimming in a tasteless sauce and the entree scallops were over cooked on top. We unfortunately could not voice our concerns as the waitress did not return until it was time for desserts. We opted to skip that and leave promptly after paying. The RIVUE left a lot left to be desired. Maybe we caught them on a rough night.

I treated two of my granddaughters to dinner at Rivue prior to seeing Hamilton. Our server made certain their experience was special and that we were finished in plenty of time to walk to the theatre.

It was great, everything it was expected to be...

My only (minor) complaint is that we had reservations, and the restaurant was about 20% full. We were seated near the window at the side of the restaurant, but I wish we would have been given the option to sit more to the front of the restaurant with the full river view. We could see the river and the city, but I would have preferred a prime seat.

Service was great, very thorough knowledge of the menu, just enough checking in. Food was supreme. I had the Duroc Pork Tomahawk - very large portion size, cooked for 14 hours. My wife is a light eater - crab cakes and mushrooms. Could not have been any better.

Would highly recommend - we will be back.

All of the main courses were salty. The duck was so salty that I couldn't eat it. Grilled asparagus had some of the tough ends left on. Management did give me a discount and 2 free deserts. I have eaten here before and the food was terrific. This time, all of us were extremely disappointed. My mother from out of town had to suffer through this ordeal as well. Management did offer to bring out something else, but with 3 bad main courses I felt that we should cut our losses.

Sorry you did not enjoy your visit. It is our goal at Rivue for every guest to leave after having a wonderful dining experience. It seems we have unfortunately missed our mark with your experience. Hope you will come back and see us again so we can make it up to you.
