We went to The English Grill for my husband’s birthday and was delighted by the ambience, delightful staff, and delicious food. We suggest the crab cake, shrimp & grits, duck, and filet. Complimentary valet parking was lovely due to being in the heart of Louisville with very limited on street parking. Will definitely return!

A high class old time dining experience with elegance, superior food and lovely waiters who made the dining experience delightful. An eclectic menu with something for everyone. The mint julep cocktail was fabulous. Our waiter Yassir, was very informative and did a great table side preparation of our Cesar Salad. Lovely old wood and comfortable chairs made this dining experience one that we would repeat.

As always....we were treated like Royalty. Our Guests from out of town were treated to a great History of the Brown Hotel by our waiter. He was gracious and very helpful with suggestions and recommendations. A wonderful evening of fine wine and excellent food and will be repeated.

The Hot Brown for which they are known to have created, was cold and tasted like it was left over from luncheon. No sauce on two of the three orders. The scallops were served with a pea puree and mushrooms. Tasted terrible. Service was slow. We sat for almost 20 minutes before he asked if anyone wanted something to drink. Brought bread for table right before he served us our dinner. Terrible experience. Never will come again.

Food gets a 4 in a city where great food exists everywhere. But, the experience...the experience was unbelievable. One of my greatest dining experiences in the last decade. Considering it was my Anniversary, it made me look like a Superhero. Every one on the staff made us feel like the entire restaurant was ours.
Thanks to the Brown Hotel.
I'll have the Hot Brown next time!! It will be very soon.
Oh, and the best Bourbon Mule anywhere.

The Caesar salads were disappointing. They were made in front of us, but no input from us was requested. There was too much dressing. The entrees were good to very good.

The restaurant is a fine dining staple within Louisville and the room is quite reminiscent of the years of history in the building and on the property. Oak paneling, light fixtures, cloth panels, and portraits of former Derby winners and horses are all around the room. The food selection was great and was prepared to perfection. The servers were a little behind with several of the dinner guests all being seated at a similar time, but overall it was a very nice dinner event. I will look forward to going back again for a nice evening at The English Grill.

A wonderful hold out to old European style ambient and food. Top rate service and really good food. More than just the world-famous Hot Brown. Perfect for a real treat or romantic spoiled night out.

We heard about this place from the review. It was supposed to be the must try bucket list place in each state. What a shock how run down this place is. The food was OK, nothing special. The service from our waiter was good but the supporting staffs talk more than offering actual service. What a disappointment!

Delightful from start to finish - the hot brown is a must have. This was the very best Manhattan I’ve ever had in my life. The bread pudding was to die for. Had I been able to eat another thing - there were plenty of options. Highly recommend this experience if you’re in the area.

This place exceeded all of my expectations our waiters were Rob and Howard. They were the sweetest and funny waiters. It was me and my boyfriends anniversary and they brought us out a little desert to celebrate it. The food was amazing and I can’t wait to go back.

We hadn't been in a while, but the food was as good as we remembered. The menu is not very big, but has a decent variety (although they could have another vegetarian option or two) and everything we had was excellent. Portions were generous without being overwhelming. The service was also fine, hitting just the right balance between formal and friendly. The servers were attentive without hovering. The wine recommended went very well with the food. It's one of the few places left these days with an acceptable noise level. The carpet, upholstered chairs and tablecloths soak up a lot of the sound, so we didn't have to shout to hold a conversation. We really appreciate this in an era when restaurants, even nice, expensive places, seem to be getting louder and louder. We like the old-fashioned atmosphere (dark wood paneling, horse prints, waiters in formal attire, and such). It's obviously on the expensive side, but we don't think out of line for the quality. As we had a birthday, they comped us a dessert, a classy touch. Not an everyday place for most people, probably, but a very good special occasion place, or if you just feel like a bit of a splurge.
