The English Grill is Kentucky fine dining at its best. As much a part of Louisville's history as The Brown Hotel itself, the English Grill offers an incredible dining experience. For smaller, intimate parties, join us in our Private Dining room.View Private Dining Details
First time I’ve been there....was celebrating Valentines Day and I loved it....Food and service was phenomenal!
Beautiful venue, food was top notch, service at its best. One of the better fine dining places in Louisville.
The food was fantastic. It was almost an hour from the time our order was placed before our meal arrived.
So romantic! Great service and wonderful food! Would go back for dinner, not just special occasion!
Excellent food, service and environment. I will return to the English Grill. I recommend this restaurant to all.
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.
Fantastic people! Great experience!! Valentine’s Day would not have been the same with out it!!! “Love potion No. 9”
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!
It is definitely the most romantic restaurant any where around here and undoubtedly the most impressive as well.
Elegant room; gracious and ever so pleasant serving staff; food spot on with wonderful flavors and beautiful presentation; relaxed meal with no sense of being rushed to accommodate the next customer. All in all, a very fine meal and dining experience.
Two thumbs up. Respectful of our request for privacy while still providing great service
Very enjoyable evening. Out meal was delicious and our server George was friendly and did a fantastic job taking care of us.
My date and I thought it was a very unique experience to have a nice dinner in a very historic hotel. The waiter made the experience extremely special. He told us stories of the bar's history, explained the menu fully and made us feel special.
Our waiter Kelly was awesome! Was there with a 13 year old "foodie" who wanted to try the original hot brown. Great experience!
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.
Old time elegance. Great food and service in a stately historic setting
This was our first time to the restaurant. We were going to see Jerry Seinfeld at the Louisville Palace and my wife had a Groupon to use by mid-March for The English Grill so it was perfect.
The restaurant was absolutely beautiful and had a nice, quiet setting which is what were were hoping for. The show was at 7:00pm and our reservation was at 5:30pm. Upon sitting down we let our server know of the time constraint so after ordering a glass of wine each, we each put our entree order in. After watching others around us get both their salad/appetizer orders as well as their entrees, our meals (steak for me, salmon for her) came out at 6:45pm!
When our dinner finally arrived (which was very good), I gave our server the Groupon we had along with my credit card to cover the remainder so we could get that processed and leave after finishing our food in order to be on time for the show. Her comment was one I will never forget, saying "I thought you guys might have a Groupon." What an insult. We don't claim to be some upper class or highly distinguished individuals, but we know how to dress and act in a restaurant of this caliber. Very disappointed.
I would hope our experience isn't commonplace at this restaurant, but first impressions mean everything and ours was one which left a bad taste in our mouth.
The restaurant is beautiful from a day gone by. Has lots of history to share. The waiter, Kelly, was fantastic. He shared the history with us, got to know us and let us know that whatever we wanted, they were here to provide. The food was extraordinary! We were worried that our 9 year old wouldn’t find anything to eat. Although kids items aren’t on the menu, Kelly was easily able to find food to please our son. This is an amazing experience, and we will be back!!
