The copper spit trough, once equipped with running water, still exists at the front of the bar. Louisville, notorious for its drinking, gambling, and illegal activities, evidence of the occasional misunderstanding is the .22 caliber bullet hole in the front bar.

    We were at Front Street to celebrate 2 birthdays. The waitstaff was excellent, and the food was superb! They were attentive to my friend who has many food allergies. My ribeye steak was seasoned beautifully, and was delicious. You will not be disappointed at this restaurant!

    service and ambiance were very good. Waitress was pleasant and attentive. The manicotti was dry and seemed to have been microwaved, overcooked. The short ribs were tender and had a very nice flavor but the potatoes and gravy were lukewarm and even cool in the middle. No bread available. Meal came out so quickly; before wine. Overpriced for quality. Won't be back.

    740 FrontResponded on November 21, 2022Thank you for your feedback. I apologize that everything was not up to your expectations. Please in the future let us know immediately when you are not happy with something, and allow us to rectify it immediately to your satisfaction. We value your feedback when the execution is not right. I say this sincerely speaking for most restauranteurs. Bread is coming, it has been an issue as a result of covid. Susan, I genuinely hope you will give us another opportunity. Fred Burns, Proprietor

    A decidedly mixed experience. Seated at a terrible table just behind the host stand, we asked to be reseated and were denied. Ordered the oysters -- BIG mistake. They had been shucked very badly and well ahead of service, dried up and mangled. And what is up with the chunky cocktail sauce and no mignonette? Thou shalt not shuck oysters in advance. Burgers were very good, well cooked and nice buns. Good fries. Nice server. Things took awhile to arrive, but this is how it is nowadays. So really, the big issue was those oysters. I would recommend 740 Front, but only for burgers.

    My fiancé and I had dinner last night to celebrate our three year anniversary and it would be an understatement to say that we were let down. Service was OK. The staff doesn’t wear serving outfits so my server was literally wearing a tropical beach shirt. The cocktails were good Oysters were less than fresh, but the real disappointment was our main entrée, which was recommended to us, which was a steak for to dinner. I ordered the steak, medium rare. It came rare. If not so rare it was an edible. The steak knives were as dollars a butter knife, so I had a hard time cutting through the meat that was not properly cooked. And caveat to that our steaks also were paired with two lobster tails and unfortunately the lobster was way over cooked and rubbery. It’s kind of incredible that you were able to overcook the lobster and undercooked the steak. The lobster was cold and unappetizing. No amount of butter being put on that could’ve saved that lobster. my fiancé and I were very disappointed in our evening we would come back for the cocktail list and that is it. We were gravely disappointed in the food and unfortunately it was a waste of money to boot.

    We went to 740 Front for a birthday celebration. It was very busy, so I'm glad we had a reservation. If it's a cold night, show up right at your reserved time as there isn't much room to wait inside. The ambiance was nice! We loved the history of the building and how authentic it remained. While busy, it wasn't extremely loud and the lighting was nice for a romantic dinner. The food was amazing and we appreciated staff being upfront about the staffing shortage and to expect longer wait times from the kitchen. The mop on the steak was incredible. The asparagus was prefectly cooked, the mac n cheese was so good! I was provided with Panna Cotta on the house since I put that the reservation was for a birthday, made us feel recognized and welcome. We'll definitely be back. I look forward to going for a lunch to try some of the lighter options on the menu.

    Food was just okay. I was expecting a much better experience. WE WAITED FOR OVER AN HOUR TO GET OUR FOOD. I HAD TO GO FIND THE SERVER WHO SAID SHE SAW IT COMING OUT. NONE IN OUR PARTY WILL BE BACK.

    740 FrontResponded on October 6, 2022Steve I apologize for the delay in service. We do try to inform our guests, it states on the menu. " We also ask for your patience and understanding with timely execution and service during peak and busy times as a result of these current challenges. Your support and forbearance are greatly appreciated during these challenging times." I would also like to point out that from reviewing tickets and cameras from the time you were seated to the time your food arrived it was less that 45 minutes.
