This is the second time my husband and I have eaten the breakfast buffet and have been extremely happy each time. The buffet has something for everyone- regular breakfast food and a ton of vegan options. Even my meat loving husband likes the vegan options! Plus an array of international options to sample. Also with a very large dessert table... More

A work group went for lunch and everybody was well pleased with the choice of restaurant. The menu is so diverse we needed some help from the waitstaff to make our decisions. He was well versed on the menu and made good suggestions. He was also aware of vegetarian and gluten free options, and how to alter other dishes to... More

Got seated quicker. Server had no personality at all. Ordered appetizer, didn't get silverware. Had to hunt her down to get the silverware. She provided one and went in back for couple of minutes to get another one. Dinner arrived in timely manner. Wife order sari wrap. She loved it. I ordered Louis marsala and it had no flavor. After...

Just stopped in because it is across the street from the theater on Baxter Ave. Welcoming environment, a collection of artifacts from around the world. We were seated instantly and our server came promptly. Started with goat cheese, oils, olives... appetizer with Cuban Bread. Terrific! Greek salad was nicely displayed with nice amount of cheese, olives and cucs on the... More

Ramsi's has a diverse menu. This was the first time my wife and I have eaten here; we were only in Louisville for the day. The kosta burger (lamb) was excellent and the fermented tea drink was especially interesting! The decor is very eclectic, very nice. Good service. This is definitely a restaurant to check out when you are in... More

Visiting Louisville looking for lunch we stumbled on Ramsi's after consulting TA. We were surprised to find a garden table and a Sunday Brunch. The combo lunch and breakfast buffet was excellent. Many excellent and diverse choices. An additional bonus was a desert table. Though not homemade were good. The service was excellent and the Greeter was perfect, helpful, and... More

Love this place! The food is genuinely excellent- really delicious, fresh and healthy. Huge range of choices including for those with allergies. Nice outside seating area, complete with heaters so you can enjoy it even on a cooler night. Our server was helpful and courteous. Definitely put this top of your list for dinner in Louisville.

I used to go to this restaurant all the time when I was in college. I came through the area and went there for old time sake. I ordered my regular "Empress Chicken" and it was still as amazing as I remembered! They have expanded but still has the little neighborhood feel to it. I recommend going if you get... More

Hands down one of my favorite places it eat in the entire country. I'm a vegetarian and they always have things I can't get anywhere else. Today I had a Bayou Burger and it was amazing. Cocktails with neat twists are also always on point.

It's been awhile since we visited this restaurant since we probably came here too often. We thought today would be a good day to have Sunday brunch there. Granted it's over $40 apiece for the both of us but here is a lot to chose from plus we love the atmosphere and the Highlands area. Service was very good and... More
