I enjoyed the view. The crab claws, shrimp and fruit were excellent. My omlete was great. The desserts I felt needed updating. Nothing that I would waste my calories on. Fresh fruit and berries or even some unique pastries might be a new addition. I...More

Excellent aperitives, main dish and river view. Good services and short time for waiting the food. Sweeties offered in the end were not so good- jellies, chocolate candies bought it from local market, preferable to be avoided.

We dined with friends and had a fine time. Service, taste, presentation and value all contributed to a delightful meal and evening. The view is a bonus but restaurant stands on its own.

I need a restaurant that has private dining for approximately 30 people. We have our small wedding taking place at the Yew Dell Botanical gardens on Friday June 23rd and want to treat everyone to a nice dinner followed by festivities downtown Louisville. Do you have private dinning for my after wedding celebration? Also, would I be able to have a limited menu?

I can't say for sure, but my guess would be that they can accomplish almost anything "special" you request. They seem like that sort of establishment that can make most anything happen.... Give them a call...
