    Ramsis never disappoints - I’m I’m definitely a regular and try to make it at least four times a week. Family owned and operated, awesome menu, and I deserve as well myself.

    Very knowledgeable staff. The food was decent, but nothing I would highly recommend to people; however, I'm not opposed to going back and trying a different dish either! It has a comfortable atmosphere and eclectic artwork - I love the way it looks!

    Food was amazing as always. We sat on the patio that was a tad warm from the heaters. Our server turned one off and it made it very nice inside their. The sound level was wonderful. It seemed so quiet in there and we were able to have great conversation among the six of us. Food was great as always. Our server was a little slow but it was Valentine’s Day so I would expect a slow down. I can’t wait to return for more great food.

    Another great dinner at Ramsi’s, while sitting at the bar. As a retired substance abuse counselor, I am totally impressed with vast amount of mocktails on the menu or can be special ordered. We need more bars to do the same. I’ve always mentioned a menu to meet any dietary preferences, so allow me to add drinks as well. Nizar and Chris do an amazing job, first class service with a touch of counstmg when needed!! Highly recommend Ramsi’s.

    Everyone from our department who has eaten at Ramsi's or had the catering have loved the food, including vegetarians and vegans. There is a wide variety to suit a range of tastes. The staff is always extremely professional, courteous, helpful, and efficient as is Ramsi himself. This restaurant continues to be our go-to for department business meals as well as catering events.

    I love this place! I used to work here when I was younger just for a lil extra money bussing tables. It is such a great and funky place. However I am extremely disappointed that the brunch buffet is no longer being served. It used to be their busiest day of the week, I bet if they brought it back as a once a month more exclusive situation it would be a hit. I’m sure they have their reasons for getting rid of it, but my heart broke when I came in and it wasn’t there.

    I’m pretty much a regular and always enjoy the meals, with entrees from all around the world. It’s family owned and operated by an awesome family, with a great staff. It’s definitely my favorite. Food, service, ambience, and always a fun group of patrons, often tourist from around the world, like the menu Open Table- you make it easy to make reservations and check available times. Lol! The last four times I was there it was packed, singles, couples, small and large groups, and all having a great time. Volume a little louder, but laughter and greetings made 2023 special. The first timers were shocked at the menu, huge portions, and reasonable cost. I had the blackened salmon, Lima beans and mashed potatoes, my own selection No picture, as I was enjoying the company at the bar and wolfed it!! Highly recommend Ramsi’s Cafe, and safely said, it’s the favorite restaurant for many!!

    Food was subpar from what I’ve had previously. Food service for both the appetizer and meal was slow. And the restaurant was only 1/3 full at best. I could tell my dish which was noodle based had sat waiting for a while to be brought to the table. Been going there since 1992 when I came to Louisville. Really the first bad experience. But it was the latest experience. And I’ll not put it on my immediate list to return to.

    I ordered the lamb medium rare, It was served raw. When I sent it back it was returned as medium well. My son didn't want to cause a scene so we never said anything. The server did not have a personality either. She did not appear to like her job.

    There should never be a party at the table next to the entryway to the bathrooms. I made reservations and we were still sat in this dark dingy corner where staff bustled past the entire dinner. Killed the experience.
