I was so excited to eat here because I have been a big fan of Chef Edward Lee's since he was on Top Chef. I was in Louisville for a conference, a culinary professions' conference no less, and came here with a group. In fact, the whole restaurant was filled with people from the conference. Maybe that was the issue.... More

Let's just say I was still expecting more. Yes, the presentation is excellent, and the service very attentive, but in terms of creativity and complexity in flavor, I was expecting at least Michelin-star caliber considering the branding, setup, and price point. With that being said, the food really is very good, and the restaurant offers a great setting for dates... More

This is our second time visiting this cozy fine dining spot and the second time was just as memorable as the first. We chose the 6-course menu and every single dish was perfection on a plate (or bowl). Not to mention our server was phenomenal. Great choice for any special occasion!! We'll be back in the summer!

Went with wife, daughter and boyfriend after seeing it featured on Top Chef. Perhaps four of the most enjoyable hours of a lifetime. Had the four course menu; cuisine, service and ambient were top level. Yes, it's not inexpensive, but when you're seeking food as art, you expect to pay more, and at 610 you get what you pay for.

Our family and friends of six adults wanted to have a festive, special and wonderful dinner for Christmas Eve -- that I did not cook. As soon as an email came out about a special dinner at 610 Magnolia popped up in my in-basket, I replied immediately to reserve. I was thrilled with the results. This tiny restaurant, tucked into...

I emailed the general manager, Lindsey, in advance for a reservation and let her know we'd be celebrating my husband's 50th birthday. We had an outstanding experience that made my husband's birthday perfect. They acknowledged his birthday straight away and made us feel very special without being over the top. The restaurant is quaint, comfortable, not at all stuffy. The... More

We are from the Washington, DC area, and are familiar with Chef Edward Lee from his wonderful restaurant Succotash at National Harbor, so naturally we wanted to visit 610 when we were in Louisville. The drinks, the meal, the service -- everything was right on! I would highly recommend this place to anyone!

We did the four course tasting, and thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Great flavors in interesting combinations. But our waiter seemed totally flummoxed that we didn't want to order alcohol, and kept asking "are you sure?" Yes, we're sure. No, you don't need to ask us five times. It was off putting, and I felt like he just wanted us to... More

610 Magnolia is one of our top restaurants of all times! The food, service, atmosphere, pace, wine and spirit lists are all superb! It's not very common that a restaurant can pull all theses factors together seemingly effortlessly! I can't say enough how much we enjoyed the whole experience! Chef Edward Lee's menu is to die for, very innovative and... More

We decided on 610 Magnolia after looking for a date night spot on our weekend trip to Louisville. First, the location is somewhat off the beaten path and when you pull up, you aren't really sure this is where you're supposed to be. Other than having the address, there's not really a sign. When you walk in, you are basically... More
