Booked reservations here since we were attending a concert at the adjacent Brown Theater. They assured us that they would get us out in time for the show. We had three different waiters in our almost two hours there. Service was extremely slow even after we reminded the waiter we needed to rush and asked for the check when served... More

Our main goal in coming to the Brown Hotel was to have the famous Hot Brown at the place it was invented. We were not disappointed! The best we have ever had. Great derby pie also. The waitstaff were very friendly and attentive. A memorable experience.

We had a stunning filet accompanied by and Ali Smash cocktail. It would be very difficult to ever exceed this dining experience.

Made a reservation here before going to a Concert at The Palace Theater... The Hotel lobby and restaurant are a page out of the beautiful past... The restaurant is quiet making for excellent conversation but the food and service were just "good"... Nothing the would want me to return again...

We ate here when we were staying at the hotel and were pleasantly surprised. Service was very pleasant, everyone working the front stopped by the say hello and see how things were going. I had the vegetarian entree (a pasta dish) which was excellent and my husband had the steak which was also excellent. However, the most welcomed aspect of... More

The restaurant was lovely and the staff was excessively friendly and enjoyable to talk with. Ron, our server, had a great knowledge of the menu and was very personable. He described the sweet potato soup so well that we had to try it. We thought that it was very tasty, however we weren't quite prepared for the cayenne pepper that... More

We ate in an area across from the Grill by the front door - that door bangs loudly when shut. Valentine's Day dinner event was good, especially the filet - delicious and nicely presented. The waitress wasn't quite up to a 5-star restaurant rating. Spills, crumbs not cleaned off table, drinks not refreshed as often as should be, etc. The... More

The ambiance of this historic dining area of the Brown Hotel is lovely and not to be missed if in Louisville. The menu had changed two weeks before we were there, so the online menu was close but the format of how they serve sides,etc. had changed, as I was told by Troy the dining room manager who seemed to...
