We love going to Le Moo for special occasions and recently went for our daughters 16th birthday. They never disappoint. This was the first time none of us ordered steak (which is always perfect), and we were still happy with everything we ordered. The service was great - Steve took fabulous care of us.

The food was great and the environment was really nice for a celebratory meal, which was our reason for coming. I've been here numerous times and the service is usually great, but that was definitely not true this time. The person assisting the server was really helpful, but we barely saw our server, and when we did, he was very distant and never followed through on things that we requested. When he brought the check, he said that the computer would default to adding a 20% tip (which I don't think is true), but it is appreciated to tip more than that, which I thought was rude and off-putting, especially since his service was so poor.

Dudley’s is legendary for a reason: exquisite food, exceptional service, outstanding drinks. On this evening Beef Wellington was a special…and it was outstanding: beautifully seasoned, perfectly cooked. The smoked trout deviled eggs were also memorably delicious.

Every time we return to La Chasse we are impressed. It is one of our favorite places to dine in L’ville. The ambience, food, drinks and service are all top-notch. They make the best caesar salad I’ve ever had. All of their apps and entrées are great. They have a great selection of wines at all price points. I could go on, but you get it - it’s fantastic!

The Bristol before the show at the Kentucky Art Center is our favorite thing to do! Their staff are just the best in the city…so pleasant and personable…they make you feel special and are so accommodating! All their appetizers and entrees are delicious as well as plenty of wine and drink selections! A visit there before the show just makes the whole evening shine!
