    I felt the staff was hovering and waiting for us to pay and leave. The hostess must have checked a dozen times to see if we were still at the table. There were plenty of other people eating. I might have read her wrong but as we were leaving, her demeanor did not change.

    Food was unremarkable and slightly over salted. Service was absolutely dismal. Taking 20+ minutes for our drinks and 17 minutes when we requested a 2nd round. Can’t say I’d recommend or visit again.

    Visited while in from out of town. We used to live in Lou 25 years ago and this was a favorite spot. Still great! The reservation list was behind schedule and we had a bit of a wait but the staff were super gracious and the owner himself waited on us when we were seated. Definitely still a great place worth its reputation.

    Our “go to” family night out restaurant. We have been celebrating here together for years. We had a wonderful dinner including the vegan focaccia appetizer, Egyptian kitchen. old world salad and banana trifle just to name a few from the super diverse menu. I also love the kombucha spritz if you are interested in a refreshing mocktail.

    What a wonderful discovery! First time here, but won’t be the last. Wonderful menu, foods from all over the world. Even the salad was a standout due to fresh, locally grown organic greens and vegs. The fish entree was outstanding, a beautiful and complex blend of flavors…enjoyed every bite. You must try this delightful chef-owned restaurant.

    Excellent food & very good service. Love the food, love the feeling of this place, & our server was super nice & a good hustler. Two issues- it was very noisy (glad they're doing such a good business) & it was very dark & we couldn't see our menus without flashlights. But love this place!

    I had the samosas and the Egyptian Kitchen - the mixture of flavors in each dish were outstanding - it was just delicious, one of the best meals I have had in a long time! It's not a beautiful place but the food makes up for the atmosphere.

    The staff at Rami’s never fails. I made a reservation online, and we arrived unexpectedly early to sit at the bar and wait for our table. However, once we arrived, we seated immediately with no worries. The server was also friendly and attentive, and the food was good. I love that no matter who is at our party, you will find something to eat. Again, Ramsi’s never fails. See ya next time!

    We enjoyed our dinner. We used to eat at Ramsi’s in Norton Commons fairly often, and we miss it. Bardstown Road is not as convenient for us, but we’ll make an effort to return when we can.

    Made a reservation for our anniversary and marked it on open table and there was no mention about it at all. The food was decent. Would not “crave” coming back. Did enjoy their heated/ enclosed outdoor area.

    This is a Louisville staple and you must go. The menu has a great variety of food from all over the world. I had the Thai peanut noodle dish and asked that they make it spicy. It was delicious with the perfect amount of heat. The atmosphere here us super cool too.

    Our server, Lauren V., rekindled my affection for Ramsi's after very poor service during a previous visit. Lauren was both friendly and conscientious and went "above and beyond" when she chased me for about a half-block to give me the umbrella I'd left at the table. Food is consistently good and the selection is remarkable.

    Was our first time to Ramsi’s. Went based on good reviews on Open Table. We were not disappointed. We ended up with 4 appetizers just to get some variety. The Brie, dates, prawns, and focaccia were excellent. Only downside, and not a big one, was the food from the kitchen was a little slow. We will definitely return!
