BRINGS BACK THE BEST OF LOUISVILLE'S BEST AND MOST ROMANTIC DINING SCENE. OUTSTANDING CUISINE, WORLD CLASS SERVICE, AND ONE OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL DINING ROOMS IN THE REGION. GREAT HISTORIC HOTEL. EXTREMELY KNOWLEDGEABLE AND HELPFUL STAFF FROM THE WATER SERVER TO THE GENERAL MANAGER.

Food was delicious, but the service was awful. We had friends in from Florida who had always heard about the English Grill at the Brown and wanted to try it. Very disappointing. We specified beforehand when making the reservation that we were going to the ballet. They recommended reservations at 5:45 for the ballet at 8 pm. We were even early for our reservation. Our waitress seemed preoccupied with the table next to us , therefore in my opinion ignoring us. We had to ask for a wine list, bread, she got the lady's drink order wrong, but basically blamed our guest for ordering it wrong.I had a staple stuck to my lemon in my drink. They did take that off the bill. We asked to place our order but she said she had to get the other tables drinks. A couple other times she would tell us to wait two minutes, three minutes, while she did other things. Believe me, we were not impatient, just concerned we wouldn't make it to the ballet. She didn't even offer us dessert menus or coffee. By then there wasn't time anyway. We had been there over two hours. She left the bill without askng how to divide it, which meant she added it all together. When the men asked her to divide it, she answered by saying she didn't know who went with who. She didn't bother to ask early on. The overall experience there was very disappointing. We had intended to have a leisurely dinner, drinks, dessert before the ballet, but it was anything but, sorry to say. The English Grill is very gorgeous, and the food was delicious, but the waitress ruined it for us. We dine in fine restaurants frequently, and I usually don't comment on an occasional unfortunate meal, but I really feel like the English Grill should know this happened.

The maitre d' was fantastic. Very helpful and made us very welcome while we waited for our table. He was very concerned that we had a good time. Waitress was helpful, cordial and was a pleasure to deal with. Buffet was excellent and the plated main course was very very good. So much much better than that hotel up the street.

We stayed at this hotel and went to a show at the nearby Palace Theatre as part of a birthday celebration. We ate dinner at the English Grill and it was WONDERFUL! I had the Hot Brown and it was delicious. I highly recommend it.

It's worth it to go once. For the price, there are many other better deals in town.

Go here for The Hot Brown. The food and service were amazing but I feel that you're paying for the atmosphere and history here.

My husband and I had an amazing evening at The English Grill in The Brown Hotel. It's been awarded the AAA Four Diamond on multiple occasions, and its definitely understandable why. The food and service were impeccable, and it was easily the best fine dining experience I've ever had.

Went here for Valentine's day and was completely satisfied. There was a drink called Love Potion #9 and they poured the pomegranate juice down an ice sculpture to chill it before they poured it into the drink it was really nice. The food was so good my wife and I ordered the fillet mignon the food was cooked very well and it was so flavorful. My wife usually likes to add some type of sauce to her steak but she was completely satisfied with the steak without adding anything. It was a bit pricey since it was Valentine's Day we had to do the 4 course meal but if your willing to spend some money this is deffinately worth it.

Great foodie experience! One of the best lobster bisque I have ever had. The scallops were also browned beautifully and plated to appetise the eyes! The filet was also cooked to perfection and then topped off with the chocolate striptease! This dessert is a must have not only for its flavors but also the show it represents. All of this means nothing unless one has exceptional service. Our server, Kelly, was a delight and kept the evening interesting with stories of the Louisville area and it’s history!

We chose the Brown Hotel for a long (4 day) weekend get a way to celebrate our 10th Wedding Anniversary. The Hotel and Lobby Bar are fantastic. It's a very beautiful and historic building. Our room was also very beautiful, bright and specious. The English Grill on the other hand, was a real disappointment. The service was extremely slow for the amount of guests that were there. We were there around two hours waiting on our dinners. The Filet Steak I ordered medium was well, well over done and I had to send it back. The steak they substituted for the Filet was "OK" but because it took so long for them to serve it to me they sent it to my room and I had to eat it there. Now mind you people, this was our 10th Anniversary Dinner. The English Grill did a Fantastic jog of making it very unmemorable occasion. We will not be returning to the English Grill next time we are in Louisville, KY.
