The food is absolutely delicious each and every time I dine there. The menu has a great variety for food and drink. Everyone in my party orders something different and each person raves about their meal. The presentation is very attractive and the service is top notch - just enough attention is paid to each patron. It’s great to have a local restaurant that I can count on to deliver quality dining at any time. The prices are great as well. I’m glad to have a place like Uptown Cafe for entertaining out of town guests, especially with the Derby coming up very soon. Thanks for the great service.
OMG is how I would describe the food, drink and service. There were 4 of us and we started with cocktails at the bar and a smoked gouda and tomatilo queso. Never had "cheese dip" taste the same and I will crave it forever. Delicious and the perfect amount for the 4 of us to dip a few chips and leave room for all the other must have's. Nice wine list and the BEST espresso martini's I have ever had (and yes, I have tried them from many places). Once we were seated, we were nicely greeted and got a couple appetizers. Black bean cakes, and onion rings. Yes, onion rings. Crazy good. Cooked perfectly and not so big that eating them was awkward. The black bean cakes were perfectly cooked, not at all dry, wonderful flavor. Then, dinner...to keep this from going to long, I will list what we had and just know there was not a bite left of ANYthing! Basa fish tacos, grilled beef tenderloin medallions, scallops (cooked perfectly) and the Uptown burger. Of course we finished with a couple desserts and were instantly in a food coma! DELICIOUS!
service was slow and vegetables were over cooked - entree was good otherwise
The food was good. Salmon on Greek salad nothing special.
The service and food was good. The price was good as well for the nice portions. The only complaint would be the tables were small and too close together in the area next to the bar scene. Overall I would go there again and tell my friends to go as well.
We always enjoy dining at Uptown. Servers are always friendly and knowledgeable of the menu items. Kelly is a great host.
This was the second time eating here and I wasn’t disappointed. It has become my go to for a working dinner when I’m in town on business.
This place had tremendous reviews and that is why I wanted to go. I can completely see how they seem like almost the perfect restauarnt. I am frugal. Although I love a great value. This eatery provides that across the board. It is not cheap. But everything is so good that you clearly see a value. You don't have traditionl cafe food. Everything is unique and has a touch to it. But every aspect of my dining experience had solid great food. From Salad, appetizer, main dish, and cake. I am not sure I have ever had a meal that everything was good. Just a great restaurant.
Server was very good, large party and he was patient and got the bill right!
Great place, food was great and I would recommend this place to everyone!
Excellent as usual
I love the atmosphere, and the bar area is really beautiful. The food and service for a table of 10, the food was good (my salmon wasn't great, though), and they need more local beers. They provided a nice little birthday cakelet for the birthday girl. Overall, it was a very nice night in a great location.
Always good food and an enjoyable experience! One of our favorite restaurants!
Crowd seemed to be a little more mature. Wasn’t by any means a cool or hip place to be.
Love the Uptown. Great menu and service. Food is always excellent!
Great quite atmosphere, menu selection, food and service.
Enjoyed people watching past the front window.
Great as always! Food and service have never disappointed us.
The ambience and service were quite good. The veg soup was delicious. The entree (chicken and puff pastry) was rather bland and short on chicken.
Great little spot for date night.
My husband and I have been here several times in the last couple of months and it truly is one of the most consistently good places on the Bardstown Road Strip. The food was prepared perfectly - My salmon was tender and a generous portion, on a bed of cooked spinach that was neither over nor under-done and rice. My husband orders the beef tenderloin nearly every time and "rare" has always meant rare. The waitress was, as always, professional and attentive. Uptown has become one of our go-to restaurants when we are looking for predictably good food, good service, and an adult atmosphere.
The good and service were great! This is our new weekly Monday spot!
Always good and consistent
Mushroom soup and black bean cakes were yummy.
Uptown Café has been a neighborhood staple of my family’s for many years!! The food is excellent, the service is always great and the pricing is very reasonable. Highly recommend, especially if you’re looking for a quiet, peaceful evening. Ambience is certainly an asset. Must give it a try!!
My friend and I enjoyed Uptown's dependable excellence on a recent week night. We started with a healthy pour of bourbon on the rocks. We tried soups: shrimp bisque and borscht, which was a special. The borscht was served hot and was delicious, with beef and chunks of tender beets. My friend liked the bisque as well; my impression was that it was creamy and delicately flavored. Then we split a chicken liver salad which was wonderful as usual. We were too full for dessert but enjoyed a cup of great coffee to finish. Service was professional: there when we needed someone and unobtrusive when we didn't.
The four of us had a very nice lunch and service very satisfactory.
We were chilly and we were accommodated by their adjusting
the temperature setting. We were not rushed and with it being
lunchtime the noise level was not a problem.
A regular stop of ours, always good and always consistent, what one always looks for in a great dining experience
Very nice meal with friends. Loved the stuffed mushrooms. Only disappointment was they had run out of my friend’s favorite dessert.
Always count on a good meal and great service at Uptown Cafe. It's my favorite neighborhood restaurant!
Have dined here many times and have never been disappointed!
Excellent as always
This visit was for my wife’s birthday, but we ALWAYS enjoy a visit to Uptown Cafe and have for years. Can count on good food, service and ambiance.
One of our favorite places! Food is always wonderful.
Excellent food and service at very reasonable prices. Never disappoints.
The Uptown is consistently the best place in the Highlands and beyond. We have been going there every Friday night for 20+ years with friends. The wait staff knows us, and many of the long time customers. They remember what we like.."not to spicy, burger well done, hold the onion".
The food is inventive just enough to keep you interested.
Go if you never have , you'll return just like we do.
Excellence service. Food is wonderful! My go to place in Louisville
Enjoyed a lovely New Years Eve dinner with good friends
Great food and location. All staff had smiles and made you feel at home.
The New Years Eve special redfish was outstanding. The cauliflower bisque was wonderful. And the desserts could not have been better
One of our favorites!
Absolutely delightful! Our table of four was totally pleased with everything: attentive service without being intrusive, varied menu, and top-notch preparation of our food.
