Dinner was close to perfect. Food was excellent, though I would have liked something a little more substantial with the pan-seared scallops. Had I not had a salad, I would have left still hungry. Desserts were delicious. Coffee was not good at all. It was made right at the table, which is nice, but I think the server used too much water. My first cocktail was outstanding, but the second was missing the sour mix and not good at all. The server did take it back and made it right. I will definitely return.

Mother's Day Dinner on Saturday eve. Food was excellent -- pork chop wonderful, scallops great. Server was knowledgeable, entertaining, very polite. Offered to take photos. Noise level moderate only because a larger crowd for Mother's Day eve. After dinner, the Bar / Lounge is excellent with lively atmosphere, great drinks, piano music. General Manager, Troy, insures that dining experience is superb.

We have lived in Kentuckiana for 16 years and have always wanted to try a Hot Brown at the Brown Hotel. It was everything we hoped it would be! Food was great. Service was fantastic! Ambience was quiet and relaxing. Live piano player in the background also helped. We will have to make another visit

We had no trouble getting a reservation for two on a Friday evening a week before the Derby. The ambience is fantastic, looking just like an English Grill from the last century. Our server Kelly was appropriately attentive as well as providing tips about what to see in the city. My wife and I shared the Caesar Salad that was prepared table-side, which was quite enjoyable. I had the prime rib which was tasty but just OK. Overall it was a great experience and met our expectations.

The English Grill has returned to the excellence of its past. Beautiful room, of course, and the menu and food quality are top-notch. Service was excellent- professional yet friendly. I had not been there in several years but will now add it back into our fine dining rotation. Very pleasant experience.

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.

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.
