My wife and I visited Le Relais having a fantastic dinner in every sense. The waitress was extremely attentive and friendly. The food was superb to the last detail. We were orginally worried about going there because of some of the previous reviews, but thought we would find out for ourselves. If you got the same food/service we did then you would want to go back again & again.
Two thumbs up!!
Out of all of the great restaurants in Louisville I chose Le Relais for my birthday dinner. I love the atmosphere and have been going since I was a little girl when it housed the How Kow (sp)
restaurant. The server was rude but that was not the worst. I ordered the steak au poivre medium rare, you know red hot center. It came to me med to med well with a touch of pink. It was my birthday and expensive so I sent it back, something I don't usually do. Have been in the food industry and know you are just to tell the chef what the customer wants. As my husband began his dinner while I waited, the owner/manager came to my table with the plate I had sent back and began to argue with me about the difference between med and med rare. I told him I wanted it cooked med rare with red center, he said in a threatening tone, that he was going to take it to the kitchen and have them to cook it rare, I said, fine, ordered more rare to begin with. It was certainly not what I expected from this restaurant. His attitude was awful, I will not be back until I hear it is under new ownership/management.
We visited Sunday evening arriving 5 minutes prior to our reservation. Upon entering the front door we did not see the Maitre D and waited there for a few moments until someone greeted us. Since we arrived early our table was not ready and we had to wait in the Lobby. Our waiter was neither friendly or helpful. For an appetizer we had a 1 inch slice of cold hard stale bread and some butter. For the drink a complimentary glass of water. There were 2 items we wanted to order but they ran out so we had to choose something more costly and less desirable which arrived practically raw red after we ordered it well done. There was no soap to wash hands with in the men's room. If your looking for a quite romantic French restaurant good luck, this place was wall to wall with loud obnoxious drunks. We were disappointed because we expected more from such an expensive and highly rated restaurant.
What a magnificent evening at Le Relais restaurant at Bowman Field Airport in Louisville, KY.
The artistic presentation of the food was matched only by the superb flavor of the dishes themselves and the romantic Art Deco ambiance. The filet mignon was so succulent it positively melted in my mouth. My two Companions Sea Bass dish was to die for, as well.
The Le Relais staff and the owner added to the overall mood of the evening by their extreme attentiveness. What a marvelous way to spend New Years Eve. If the New Year is half as good as my New Years Eve dinner at Le Relais, it will be a splendid year indeed.
My compliments to the Chef and to the entire staff at Le Relais. You made a very memorable evening for this customer and her two guests. The only thing missing was that we did not have a 1930's Cord or Bugatti in which to drive home.
I encourage those of you that appreciate fine dining to make your reservations at Le Relais as soon as possible. I assure you that you will not regret the experience!
