Food was great, the view was awesome but getting to the restaurant was a pain in the butt. We went in through the hotel, and the front clerk directed us towards the elevators and said it’s on the top floor, floor 25. When we went to the elevator, it wouldn’t let us push floor 25. The light came on for that floor and then disappeared. So we thought, let’s go to floor 24 and just take the stairs up a flight. Wrong! Floor 24 was being remodeled or something and looked like something out of American horror story hotel Cortez. Everything was under construction and a mess but no one on the level to help direct us. It was really creepy. We tried to go back down elevator but it wouldn’t come back to get us on that floor. We tried to find the emergency stairs to take up a flight and it came to a weird opening in the middle of the dining area. It seemed really strange. Good thing no one was in there other eating otherwise we might have scared them when we broke in the dungeon doors. Other than that, food was great, and Peter our waiter was top notch! He had good recommendations and was very informative on the food.
We love the Rivue. The atmosphere, the food, the views! All of it. This visit they seemed a little short handed but our Server did a nice job managing our plates at Brunch after a couple of her tables cleared out. Food was great as usual and we were able to relax and enjoy our meal.
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.
My husband and I enjoyed our Anniversary Dinner there and it was wonderful. the atmosphere as well as the food. The view was breathtaking as we could see all of the Louisville lights.
Outstanding food and atmosphere. The view from our table was amazing. Wow, what a wonderful dining experience.
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 .
Best food I have had in a long time. Went during Valentine's day the better half was impressed with service and food
This was our second time going and we are please every time. We love Carl!
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!
We had a enjoyable Anniversary dinner. View of the city was beautiful.
Valentine day celebration/ engagement celebration
As always, very nice place, great atmosphere and excellent service..
Our server was pleasant but was rushing from table to table and not connecting with guests. I had the Braised chicken and my wife had the filet. Both excellent.
Everything was good but our server was not. We learned more from the tables around us when their server was talking. Beautiful view of the Ohio River Valley!
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.
It was amazing. We went for my cousin's birthday party. The staff was amazing and the food was great. We will go back very soon.
Having Carl as our server was incredible once again. Dinner satisfied beyond measure. Never disappointed. We went somewhere else last year for our anniversary and that will never happen again. Thank you Rivue for treating us like it was our wedding night again!
Great experience...very romantic...food was very good as was service...no complaints
Very disappointed in the seating location! Asked for revolving area - told not available. Looked available to us. Did enjoy piano music, but not directly in front of our table - as it was difficult to even hear conversations across the table.
Was truly and aww moment from the grand piano, the view and exquisite meal. It was the perfect setting of everything! Will be a regular spot for our special occasions.
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.
The staff was very nice and accommodating. The food was phenomenal and I'll definitely be going back.
Its better at night with all of Louisville lit up, but on a summer day, it has perfect views. Great food and great service.
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 food was great and Chris, our waiter, was wonderful!
