Due to the bulk of our available seating being outdoor, reservations are weather dependent. In the event of rain, we are unable to guarantee a spot on the covered patio or inside, as seating is limited. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Expect the unexpected | A village-focused European “roost” where a lively Parisian Bistro greets the more traditional English Pub. A must-do in LOU.

Very odd entrance and layout,
we went upstairs to check in to be redirected back downstairs. Wobbly table and chairs, given one silverware. Beer taps were all broken. Ordered goat cheese salad which had one small piece
of fried goat cheese on it although good. Great server and very attentive food runner.Not in a hurry to return although I’m sure being sat inside may have been more enjoyable.

The Village Anchor is my favorite spot in Louisville. We love every day, but especially Wine Down Wednesdays.

Met with a friend at High Top downstairs in the bar area. Loved the atmosphere. Started with the brown sugar Old Fashioned and shared a bottle of half-priced wine (Wednesday special). Split the gorgonzola wedge and the special of the day, which was steak tacos in honor of Cinco de Mayo. Our food was excellent, service was perfect, and the entire experience was pleasant. The Village Anchor always delivers and I'd recommend to anyone looking for good food and a cozy atmosphere.

Date night with the wife. Made reservations thru open table. Got there and was told our table was on the patio. Wife asked if it was heated. Hostess said it was and we had to walk back down to patio. We were seated at our table and the heat was not on and outside temp was 60-63. We were not prepared. We asked for inside dining and they provided. Service picked up after first drink order and food was quick to come out. I had the filet and it was so good. Atmosphere was excellent.

Great food and ambiance. Outdoor dining is wonderful. Downfall is they are charging a $2 per person extra fee to your meal due to “covid expenses”. This is the first restaurant I have seen do this since last Spring and we have dined out a frequently as we have been able to. The extra charge seems excessive and unnecessary.
