Corbett's Fine Dining Ratings and Reviews

The staff could not have been nicer and more professional. Dining on the porch is always lovely. The cocktails were excellent and the calimari was good. The tasting menu was disappointing. Not bad, just lackluster. The scallop was nice but the accompanying tiny tortellini were pretty raw and tasteless. The salad would have been excellent with a touch more dressing; it was pretty naked. The salmon was fine. The lamb was cooked as we ordered it and nicely presented but eyes closed I would not have known it was lamb. Desserts were okay but bland. I know Dean Corbett can do better.

Our drinks were a bit watery. Appetizers were superb and soup was tasty. However, entrees were bland, the broken rice grits in the shrimp dish had zero flavor and the sea bass was unimpressive. Perhaps the menu better suited to an older crowd? Service was top notch, though.

Another wonderful meal! Amber, Joey, Franklin and Cesar took excellent care of us when we made a last minute reservation on Sunday evening. Such a fun, relaxing time! Keep up the great work, Corbett's staff! We will see you again very soon!
Slow and disappointing
We first had dinner here a year ago and enjoyed it very much. My wife and I were eager to revisit and possibly make it a birthday tradition but we were very disappointed this time. Although our waiter was nice, our service was very slow. It took nearly an hour to get our entrees and the only thing that kept coming was water. We we seated by the front door which made for a surprisingly quiet spot and great for people-watching but seemed to affect our waiter's attention.
I ordered the filet which came out cooked correctly but had obviously been sitting out for a while. For $50 it should've blown me away but it didn't. The fries were ok but again felt old.
We got free dessert for my wife a birthday, which was great but the dessert itself (strawberry rhubarb tart) was bad. It was soupy, felt undercooked, and bland. We couldn't finish it.
For the high-price of this restaurant I expected much more but we probably won't be returning.

All restaurants have an"off" day, I hope this is what happened.
Service was slow, I didn't think our server had too many tables. His attention to us was slow and indifferent. Should it take 10 minutes to get your drink after it is ordered? NO!
Sea Bass was not cooked and it was returned, another wait.
Anyhow, we all have bad days, but I won't be back, too expensive and too much indifference.
Corbett's stands for fine dining
Great restaurant to celebrate special occasions! We had set a date night after about 16 months of baby break and celebrated in style. Excellent food options, wonderful appetizers, and an exhaustive wine list satisfying every taste. Corbett's is a one-of-a-kind place out in the east end, a place to celebrate, a place to enjoy. Service was very attentive and our time at the restaurant was very pleasant.

It was my husband's birthday. the food was delicious. We shared the mussels for the first course . They had a beer sauce which made them the best we have ever had.I had the Tiger shrimp and grits . They were awesome. My husband liked his duck. We go to Corbett's when we want a special dinner.

Excellent food, great inside dining. Food was outstanding, they did not rush out the food, which for the price was very good. Thought wine list was a little pricey did not have many choices for moderate priced wines

My wife & I have had lunch but never dinner so we splurged for her birthday. Our daughter and granddaughter joined us. We started off with an excellent Spring Mix Salad! We had the Sea Bass, Lobster, Duck & Filet: all fantastic, especially the mash potatoes & sweet peas accompanying the Sea Bass. The peas had a slight firmness to them similar to garbanzo beans, something different but excellent. We tried every roll, all very good!
The desserts were very tasty but rather small.
Our server was exceptional as was everyone else consistently keeping our water glasses filled & being attentive to any needs! Thanks for a great evening out for my wife's birthday!
Celebrating our wedding anniversary
My wife and I have thought of Corbett's as our favorite place for a special dinning experience until Thursday evening.
We had early sitting and were seated facing the door to the room so we were looking at all the activity at the receptionist desk as well as all that entered and left the room. When we arrived there did not appear to be anyone else seated except a few at the bar so a better table was available. By the time we ordered, another couple were seated right next to us (the lady at that table was complaining about something the entire evening) and shortly after that a table of six businessmen (who were involved with airlines) were seated across from us.
We both ordered the five course meal since we have had those in the past and were very pleased. Our meals this evening were a big disappointment. The calamari was tough and hard to eat. Couscous was served with one of the entrees and as a salad also so there was definitely way too much couscous. The lamb my wife had was cooked great but mine was way too rare and they were both suppose to have been prepared the same. The dessert was a piece of dry cake with a fruit mixture on top. Not worth eating so we did not.
When you pay the extra price for a fine dinning experience you expect to get a fine dining experience. We will have to think long and hard about going back to Corbett's.
Typically outstanding but not impressed this time.
Celebrating our 25th. Restaurant was quiet Wednesday night. Sat us immediately. Just us in corner booth. Within 5 min, sat another couple adjacent and facing us. Really? Restaurant wide open and you stack us on top of each other? Ok move on...
Meal was outstanding but portions tiny and forgot asparagus. Wait staff nice but a little to laid back. Just not the overall experience to justify a $300 dinner bill!
Hindsight we should have done bar menu outside. A great ambiance. Usually outstanding. We'll be back. Chalking up to an off night.
The ambiance and service was great, but ...
The ambiance and service was great, but the food quality was lacking for this price range. My wife ordered a filet mignon with a medium (no pink) temperature and it came out medium rare (very pink). We sent it back and it came back still very pink so she just didn't eat it. For a dinner for two that was over $160 I find this unacceptable.

We've had some excellent meals on special occasions here. Last Friday's experience topped them all. Impressive food artistry and quiet setting despite being seated near the bar area during a UK tournament game. We lingered for hours comfortably. The way dining should always be...if we could afford such elegance each night.
Never a disappointment!
Dining at Corbett's is an exceptional experience. The menu always surprises, the offerings always feature local food sources, the wait staff is knowledgeable and attentive, and the food is excellent -- well prepared, perfectly presented. On our last visit, I had the wild boar (first time in my life) --- and it was magnificent. Not gamey, tender and perfectly seasoned. Paired perfectly with a Charles Krug Cabernet, it was an enjoyable meal. Can't recommend this establishment highly enough!
Sometimes changing the menu is not good!
We dined at Corbett's over Valentine's weekend as we normally do. This the menu was reduced and the entrees got hit the most. We had the filet which was flavorful and tender but a definate 3rd or 4th place amongst Louisville steakhouses. We also had the wild boar at the suggestion of the waiter. I would not recommend that to people with dental issues as it was tough and frankly not that appetizing. Highlights of the night were starters: lobster and scallop hush puppies and cauliflower and cream soup. Not my best meal at Corbetts but still enjoyed the evening.

Staff was very friendly and helpful. Menu was simple, but a bit pricey. Started out with Muscles which were undercooked, but management made it right and took it off our bill. Overall was very pleasant and satisfying and would recommend to anyone as a fine dining experience.
Cozy but something's missing
We made reservations to celebrate a birthday. When we arrived there was only one couple in the dining room and one couple in the bar. (Sunday - but still not a good sign) The restaurant felt cozy with a nice fire burning in the fireplace. Still, it felt chilly throughout the visit. Our server was helpful but not very knowledgeable about the food and knew virtually nothing about the wine list. For a restaurant that charges as much as they do, we thought that this a little surprising. The quality of the food I would rate as good but not what I would expect from a restaurant of that supposed caliber. Even though there was only one other table being served, we saw very little of our server. Overall, our experience was pleasant but not anything like what I would have expected for the price and it is unlikely that we'll return.
Great Birthday dinner
Everything was wonderful. Great food, nice ambiance, large wine list. I would definitely recommend this place for a special occasion. I wish the tables weren't so close to each other. It would have been nice to have a little more privacy during dinner with some ambiant lighting. I was surprised how casually dressed some patrons were.
Overall, the best food in Louisville!
Wonderful Dining Experience
My wife and I just had dinner there this evening. It was our first visit and the experience could not have been better. Very friendly staff and the service was incredible. The quality of the food was outstanding. We would recommend this place to anyone.
