Uptown Cafe - Louisville
We love Uptown. Friends were visiting from Europe and they wanted to return to Uptown. They are former Louisvillians. We had a wonderful time. All our meals were great.
You can't beat Uptown's 50% off on bottles of wine on Monday nights. That bonus plus great homemade soups and salads always brings us back with a couple of friends. Our recent visit consisted of sharing grilled salmon, oysters Casino and special Cajun corn chowder...Yum!!
Our friends shared a Brie and apple appetizer, plus a chicken piccata that they raved about. We topped off our evening sharing two of their homemade desserts. Will be back soon.
Great dinner excellent food, amazing service- Uptown is now at the top of our list.
Loved the jagger schnitzel and signature cocktails!!!
We enjoyed our meal and the service was excellent. Love coming to the Uptown for a good meal.
After 30+ years of living in Louisville, I finally ate at Uptown. Truly, I've missed too much great food! Due to restricted times for reservations, my husband and I went to dinner at 5:30, rather than 6:30. When we arrived many tables were open. Rather than taking us to a window table, we were given one near the main walkway between rooms, my chair being directly underneath a coat hook, upon which a short coat was hanging. When I hesitated, we were told that the other tables had been reserved. However, 90 minutes later, they remained empty. That's my ONLY complaint... but it did affect how much I enjoyed myself.
The drinks were great and the food even better. My grilled shrimp on curried couscous was tender, tasty and just the right size. My husband's salad with grilled chicken was fresh, attractive and tasty as well. Also, there wasn't a TV in the dining area or loud music - something we really appreciated.
So - go to UPTOWN - enjoy the food - but do be a bit more demanding regarding tables. Although I'm not OCD, or anything, that hanging right over my shoulder did bother me given how nice the place is otherwise.
We were afraid that the Friday after Valentines Day would be hectic, but we had great service and the food was perfect.
Great Valentines Evening! The atmosphere was perfect for a delightful evening. Food was fantastic and service top notch. Already planning our next visit.
Yes. We came for Valentines, and the food and service were great. We had the specials and they were wonderful!
Nice evening out. The service was spot on- attentive but not hovering. Uptown has a wonderful wine selection also. We enjoyed our meal.
We live in the Highlands and Uptown Cafe is a neighborhood option that never disappoints. The food and service are always very good. Highly recommended.
As always, Uptown is top notch. The service was outstanding for a very crowded night and a large group of us. Can't go wrong!
Always a pleasure dining at the Uptown! We will return.
I recommend them all the time. Wonderful food and excellent service. Always a treat!
We asked for a booth in the back after being first seated at a table_____no problem and on a cold night the booth was warm, cosy, and quiet. Flank steak, vegetables, and potatoes au gratin cooked and seasoned to perfection. I loved the Farmhouse Red Blend and my friend enjoyed her chardonnay! We ran into friends in the bar on the way out ____felt like we were in out local pub!!
I was out with my aunt and uncle who are in their 80s. It’s a treat to be somewhere with reasonable prices where we can hear each other.
Love the Uptown. It is always a great place to meet friends and have a good meal. Thanks Kelly and all of the staff. What a special local spot.
Our groups of seven friends had an excellent experience. Food was delicious. Staff and hostess friendly. Always, always have an excellent experience at Uptown
Always great food and great service!
I never have a complaint about Uptown Cafe!!
Thursday night, we went to Uptown. Yes. There were left-overs in the fridge at home. And fresh meat and veggies too. But it had been a day that started early; ended late. Neither of us were willing to fix the meal and clean up afterwards. We were weary.
It was simple. A quick reservation on OpenTable, a request for a quiet corner and, 30 minutes later, we were shown our place. A server appeared quickly, took drink orders. Then told us the specials. Left us alone to catch up with each other.
We were served. Supper was good. Quiet. Restful. More quiet conversation. A wonderful week night repast.
Thank you for being there for us, Uptown!!
Food was wonderful as usual!!! We love this gem.
We were moving our son into U of Louisville. Uptown Café was a nice "final" family meal for the spring semester. Everyone found something to enjoy. Food was very good. We felt this was a great value. We are Northerners and frequently struggle with the speed of service in many Louisville establishments but we found the service quite good based on our standards.
The soup and salad were good The salmon pasta & the sesame chicken pasta were outstanding
Food very well prepared. Ambiance relaxed conversational.
Love this place !!
We celebrate our Family Christmas/Birthday dinner here every year. You never disappoint!!
Went to this restaurant on a date and it felt like a night in Paris. Roland was outstanding, the food came out in a timely manner and the staff was amazing. Would recommend this restaurant to family and friends.
Wife had the Chicken, too much rice on the plate, I had the Jagerschnitzel found it too small, overcooked, too much sauce added and the veg medli was far to salty. You know what they say, "lots of salt covers up a host of mistakes". And finally, the mashed potatoes were lumpy! Would not return but I recommended it for others who want a casual, people watching place if they have a need to be "seen".
Food was simply not good, heavily over-spiced. No ambience. Disappointed as I’d been here multiple times years ago and enjoyed it.
I didn't care for the mussels I ordered. My three companions very much enjoyed their meals. They said their cocktails were delish.
Food is amazing! Specials are always delicious and change everytime I go. I hardly ever order from the menu because the specials are so tempting. Make a reservation!
Great service and delightful menu with local selections
Uptown Cafe has been our "Go To" cafe option for many years. We took out of town friends before a concert. They loved the casual, friendly atmosphere and the comfort food options with great taste and presentation. We were glad to share our neighborhood favorite. And the excellent service got us out on time for our concert.
A typical night at the Uptown- everything was top notch!
A perfect choice for lunch, private or business-related. Good options on menu from small plates to full meals. Well-thought out, creative specials daily. Recently revamped wine menu and full bar. Eat and go. Or relax and visit all afternoon. Food, as always, is fresh, imaginative and well-prepared. And, as always as well, service is exemplary.
