This was our 3rd dinner at the RIVUE. Disappointed they no longer offer the wedge salad even though server said it was wildly popular. The complimentary candy cart was absent as well. We would not likely return.

The view is amazing.... however, for this to be a potential 5 star restaurant it was a little rough.... the walls need to be painted.... they are badly scuffed.... it has a dingy look upclose... the service is ok.... the live piano player is too loud, you have to yell to have a conversation.... the food was very disappointing.... wish we went to Ruth Chris instead of waiting $100.... after we left we stopped by Ralph's to get food because my girlfriend d idnt eat her food.... Terrible menu for a place with such an amazing view.

The atmosphere was very romantic and peaceful,
Beautiful view however for the amount of money we spent we shouldn't have had to ask for a refill more than once. At one point our food was getting cold due to no beverage to drink with it. Unfortunately we will not be back due to the service was not $150 worth service.

Service was OK.. waitress didn’t know much about bourbon or deserts and didn’t come back for refills often even when the restaurant was not very busy at all.
The dessert bananas foster in the menu was not Hanna’s Foster. They need to rename it.

The atmosphere was super nice but the food, The three-course meal, was not worth $75. I ordered the chicken for my second course and it was nothing but two drumsticks and at that and some kind of gravy. My first course the braised short rib was OK .

It was a wonderful night, our server was delightful and our food was presented beautifully and very tasteful.
The only complaint I have is that I requested to be seated in the round areas and was seated just on the edge NOT on the round, we didn’t have a great view of downtown and my husband has NEVER been to Rivue so he felt “ what’s the big deal?” We were seated on the side with our backs to the Ali Center so seeing the bridges and YUM and our skyline was out of the question but seeing center of the arts building abs Humana building was delightful.
I would visit again for a special occasion but would require seating on the rounds!

As we celebrated our last 'normal' Valentine's Day before heading off to the Navy, we carefully selected a restaurant days in advance. At first glance, the reviews and menu made it an amazing choice, yet we still had a few other options in our hand. After seeing the entryway on the 25th floor, we were breathless. The sun and river aligned perfectly with the ambiance to make this dinner date such an amazing memory for us. We made reservations for 5:30 and upon arrival, we were paired with the lovely Jasminka as our server. She was splendid, the manager that talked to us during our meal was amazing and all of the help from the remainder of the staff helped to create the perfect dinner experience. If you haven't had the opportunity to visit Rivue, reserve a table as soon as you can. The rotating dining floor and beautiful decor combined with perfectly crafted food and drinks will win your favor as the best romantic restaurant in Louisville. I highly recommend the Goat Cheese Cheesecake.

Fast friendly service. Great omelet that I had. Variety of chesses on the tray seemed to be from local markets. Greek salad very tasty. May want to keep horseradish out for the prime rib. Asked the young lady for some and she was quick to get me a small ramekin of it.

Made a reservation here for my wife and I for our anniversary dinner during our stay at the Galt House. They kept to my reservation request of being seated window side in the rotating room and even included a dessert on the house for our anniversary. Cannot recommend this restaurant enough if the opportunity arises. I'll admit it can be pretty pricey by the end of the evening. But the food, ambiance, service, and the incredible view of the river and city you get from the rotating room is worth it and will make it an unforgettable occasion.

Rivue is a lovely location atop the Galt House. It has a beautiful view if the city as diners rotate high above the city. Unfortunately, the food is "old school". The chef needs to discover what is current and try new dishes that would be more appetizing.

Our waiter was personable and present at the right times to provide drinks and remove plates. His amiable personality saved the brunch.

Great view of the river. Food was excellent. Service was excellent. One member of our party has a serious dairy allergy, and the chef and staff were very understanding of the issue and took care to insure that no dairy contaminated her food.

The restaurant was beautiful. The floor revolves so everyone has the opportunity to get “the best seat in the house”. My server Chris was so attentive and incredibly knowledgeable about the menu. The manager even offered to take a photo. The food is AMAZING. Great hospitality, phenomenal food, beautiful view. I would go back tomorrow.

The atmosphere and view at this restaurant is wonderful. We visited for our anniversary and enjoyed the experience. The piano playing as we dined was great. The food was good and as they knew it was our anniversary we received complementary dessert which was very nice. Drinks were overpriced. Service was good but knowledgeable and suggestions didn’t seem to match the price level and atmosphere.

 (Las Vegas)·Dined on January 27, 2018

Great place but needs some help. The service was OK, seemed understaffed. The staff worked hard but needed help. The food was good but the portions were extremely small. We had a shrimp starter dish and the shrimp were very small. The desert was a joke, tasty but not worth the $9 price. The entree was very good but expensive. The entree did meet our expectations.

I would go back but understand the portions are small but the view is excellent. Perhaps the staff will be bigger next time.

RIVUE has changed their whole menu.
Things that made them unique they have gotta rid of and no longer offer.
They cut conners and the freshness of many dishes are off.

My wife and I would go her often and after traveling for the last 6 months we stopped in again and everything is different.
Sad to say we won’t be back again.
