The ambience is elegant, service friendly and professional,the food was delicious. We had the Cesar salad followed by the hot brown. You must try a hot brown. It was delicious. The cocktail and wine... More

We asked the front desk for a reservation at they told us 8 PM. Later, they asked us to move it to 8:15; no other opening were available earlier. When we walked in, the English room was packed with about six tables of 40 occupied so we were at a slight loss of what the booking issue was. A Doll... More

Dinner at the English Grill – a fabulous experience. The dining room is elegant and luxurious with dark oak paneling and leaded glass windows. The service was 10 out of 10. Our server was experienced, professional, attentive and personable. (I think his name was Kyle ???). Anyway, he was great, whatever his name. The sommelier/manager Mr. Ritchie was extremely knowledgeable... More

Nothing like getting the infamous KY Hot Brown at the English Grill. It was absolutely delicious. The menu is limited but yet has a variety of food. If you are doing Louisville, getting the true Hot Brown from here is a must. The staff was very pleasant and attentive.

I went there for the Hot Brown Sandwich which I last had 40 years ago. It is one of my favorite dishes. The service was impeccable and quite posh for a weary traveler who was awe struck by the beautiful environment of this historic hotel.
