We have always enjoyed finding a great Sunday Brunch spot. WE found an amazing place for Sunday Brunch here in Louisville. On the top floor of the west side of the Galt House Hotel this high end restaurant rotates 360 degrees in an hours time. The setting looks out over the Ohio River and downtown Louisville. The formal dining accommodations... More

My wife and I ate there one night during our stay at Galt House. We had appetizers and desserts. They were all delicious and the service was very attentive, but not over-bearing.

Staying at the Galt for a conference. Splurged on dinner at the 25th floor Rivue. A cocktail (great!) An app (great!) A $48 ribeye (great!). All the time watching the amazing free candy cart approach each table after dinner. I was so jacked for my turn! Then my waiter slapped my doggy bag and my $87 bill on my table... More

It was simply a magical experience, if you want to impress someone, take her/him there. The views only are more than a reason to go. Not to mention the incredible food, and the service. Absolutely top of the class.

This is a revolving restaurant atop the Galt Hotel. this is the only revolving restaurant in Louisville. The service was very attentive and friendly. The food nicely presented and very tasty. Its great at night to see all the bridges and waterfront. the restaurant moves very very slowly, so it should not disturb anyone. You hardly are aware of the... More

Excellent drinks. Excellent gumbo. Nice view. The place is a little spendy, but not as bad as some. My only complaint was the steak. Ordered medium rare, and got almost blue.

My fiancé and I drove four hours to visit Galt House for new year's eve. We were really looking forward to a special dinner at the Rivue restaurant to experience the views and what we thought would be a wonderful experience.

Last night my husband and I took our two sons and a couple of their friends for a post Christmas-pre New Years dinner. Keep in mind our sons are 17 and 19 and know how to behave in a fine dining restaurant. But, I definitely felt like we were less welcomed than other guests. When we were seated, we weren't... More
