Our server George was enthusiastic about the food and knowledgeable about where everything came from. He was sincere in his engagement and we loved having him recommend the food and drinks we had. The food was fantastic.

Had a 8:30 reservation, and waited for over an hour - still no table. Hostess was extremely rude- told us we couldn’t wander around the restaurant when we went to the restroom. When we asked about an update, she replied that she was too busy. We left at 9:30 without ever being seated.

Our food was perfectly prepared and delicious! Scallops entree and grilled shrimp appetizers were the stars. Cocktails were top notch and creative

Cheese tray was way overpriced. The cheese choices were good, but they were very tiny. I had the trout and it was very good. The service was weak. He seemed very unsure of himself and disappeared at times.

Rye is excellent as long as you don't mind not being able to hear those you are dining with. The sound level would discourage me from returning unless weather permits eating outside. We were initially seated inside and after receiving our drinks and an appetizer asked to be moved outside. The waiter was most gracious and helpful in moving us. I would return for the food but only if I could sit outside.

We were so excited for our weekend in Louisville and this restaurant did not represent great southern hospitality. The food was mediocre, our server seemed like he had no experience. He could not open wine or answer questions about the menu. At almost $100 per person we would expect better. Also the air conditioning was blasting the entire time, and although we asked nicely to turn it down, we were told it could not be turned off. We had an awesome dinner at 610 Magnolia the following night. In retrospect we should have tried Decca or Proof on Main.

We had a great meal here. We were running late due to unforeseen traffic but texted the restaurant and they saved a spot for us. Our cocktails and cheese board were great. We shared a steak that was too rare for our taste and that was very cold in comparison to the fries it came with. We also ordered rolls to come with our meal, but they came before our entree and they were cold by the time our entree arrived. Our server was very knowledgeable but somewhat slow. Overall we liked how quiet it was and would definitely eat here again on another occasion.

Not impressed, when there are so many better choices for dinner in Louisville.

Cheese and charcuterie boards were good, but how hard is it to place prepared meat, cheese and picked items on a board. Beet salad was terribly short of blue cheese, bacon and endive, with beets chopped in big chunks versus thin sliced tasty bits.

Mains were generally disappointing with a minimum 36ounce ribeye steak (ridiculous) available which was so fatty and too chewy to be anything but an average choice grade. Scallops were resting on terribly paired black lentils, a poor Thai sauce and masses of cilantro. (Why?) Triple fried fries were okay as was the fettuccine.

Service from the waiter was fine but a 45 minute wait between finishing our starters and the entrees is simply asinine when the restaurant wasn’t busy and we had an early 6PM reservation.

Far too pretentious a place that acts and thinks it is much better than it is considering such a limited menu, which means they should be great with every menu item.

The topper was the already added in 20% tip, never mentioned by the wait person and only found once I turned on my phone flashlight to look at the bill. ((I normally tip more than 20% but when it’s added in for a party of 6 without a mention, well you get it.

I won’t return but if you go, this is just a drinks and starters place at best my friends.

For starters, come for a whiskey bourbon cocktail to start the night off right. They will not disappoint whether you like old fashions, manhattans, or something neat. Then stay for bite. Charcuterie plate was delicious followed by a nice steak with blue cheese.

There were not a lot of options on the menu, but I splurged and got the strip which was expensive and overpriced. It was definitely not worth it, and I was angry at myself for ordering it. I could have gotten a better steak anywhere else in Louisville for half the price. My date’s meal was a very soggy vegetarian dish that she could not finish. There are much better restaurants and options on the same street as Rye.

The menu was so limited! Under ten food items to choose from and no specials. Really small portions. The bill for the four of us including one person having one cocktail was $185 dollars including tip. The presentation was really nice. Food was just barely fair. We all left hungry! Very disappointing!!!

I only left 5 stars because there isn't an option to leave 6. The mushroom toast is a contender for the single best dish I've ever had. Jonathan gave us service that was top notch! Cannot wait to return!

The food was excellent. And the staff was courteous and efficient. The noise level was low except when a large group was seated beside our table. Then it went up a bit but was still not bad. Overall it was an excellent experience.

I had booked our reservation on Open Table. When I got there they did not have the reservation....but they found a table for us. It was MY fault I had entered the wrong Saturday date. But the host and the manager was so nice to us and got us a great table. We appreciated the kindness. The food was awesome and the restaurant is really nice. It was a great dining experience! Thank you again!

Very loud and service was not great. We were seated at a corner table and I think our server totally forgot about us after we ordered cocktails. It was a memorable experience. So memorable we probably won't be back.

The reviews for Rye are not at all representative of our experience. The drinks and food were just so-so. The portions were skimpy and the service was less than attentive even though they were not that busy. There are so many better options inLouisville that I can’t imagine ever going back to Rye.

In town for a race, wanted to try Rye because of the menu I had seen. Not disappointed. My wife had two small plates, I had the duck which was a very low-carb entree, served with grilled cabbage.

The food was excellent. I had vegetarian cauliflower dish as entree; it was filling and delicious. My husband had duck entree and pronounced it very good. Only negative is he went for steak and read the steak was excellent but the only steak option is one to share of 30 ounces or more

If you want to experience top-tier service with an outstanding bar menu and simply amazing food, then you NEED to go to Rye. We have been there a few times and we have always had amazing meals and service. If we are close to Appleton, we will always make time to stop in.

We made reservations well in advance for dinner for 5 at 7:45. We were celebrating a special occasion and planned to stay in the area for entertainment after dinner. After ordering our drinks we were notified they were out of 5 main courses out of about 8. We finished our cocktails and cheese plate and left.
