Caz (sp?) is our server every time we come in and we absolutely adore him. Dudley’s has become “our place” to celebrate special occasions between my husband and I. It’s been 3 years now it’s become a tradition for him to be a part of our celebrations. The food is always amazing, the atmosphere is swanky without being pretentious, and the service is 5 star

This was our first visit, and the food was generally delicious, especially their signature appetizer wontons. My wife's crab cakes were large, perfectly cooked, and accompanied by tasty vegetables. My filet was beautifully seasoned, but though the pan fried potatoes were really nicely seasoned too it might have been nice to have a non-starchy vegetable in there as well. The server was cheerful and accommodating, and when we mentioned to the manager it was our anniversary, we were gifted with a shared dessert. The only less-than-warm person we met was the host, who seemed to be having issues with the computer, but I think that was mostly frustration. Don't believe the bunch of recent negative reviews, as we saw no evidence of what they complained about.

The food was very good, but my medium well steak had no pink in it at all, but the flavor was fine and not dry. The waitress was new, and in my opinion, not quite ready to be on her own. After she took our order, I had to remind her that she didn’t ask us about our drink order . We were celebrating a birthday so she offered to take a picture of us. We agreed but the picture was way too light, but it really didn’t matter so we didn’t say anything She served our birthday dessert on a plate with two tablespoons, we were trying to both eat off the same plate when John-John brought two individual plates, a knife, and two forks None of these thing really mattered but NOT RUTH’S CHRIS’S usual excellence Also I want you to know that even though we were disappointed it won’t stop us from coming back to the best restaurant in Louisville.
