The English Grill at Brown Hotel Ratings and Reviews

The meal was expensive but perfect for a romantic Valentine's dinner with my wife. It was four course meal with wine parings. The filet was cooked to perfection and tender. The wine selections were perfect! The wine steward and the wait staff were friendly and attentive. It had been sometime since I had been to the English Grill but for special occasions it will be top of my list in the future.

Enjoyed a Valentine's Day dinner. For the positive - the filet was very good and presented well, the dessert was unusual and tasty. The décor was just ok; seemed a bit dated and there was not as much attention to detail as you might expect - the room (across from the main section of the Grill) was a bit dingy and the door next to it leading to the outside banged loudly every time it was shut. Our waitress lost points when she spilled my coffee all over the table as she poured it, and also when she took away my still-full bowl of soup without asking if I didn't like it; I felt she should have inquired and perhaps then offered a salad in its place.

I can not say enough good things about my experience at The English Grill. The food was top notch and the service was outstanding. Our server did the table side ceasar and was extremely attentive. The hot brown can't be beat!

We have been to the English Grill before and this time the food was not up to the standards we expected. I had the pork chop and it was very tough and difficult to cut, much less chew. The ambiance of the room was disappointing. I was wearing a suit, and my wife a beautiful dress, and we were sitting next to people in jeans. Very disappointing.

We spent two nights at The Brown Hotel. The first night we had bar food at the bar. The bar staff was wonderful. The second night we had dinner in The English bar and grill. Our God was excellent as was the service and ambiance. The wait staff shared historical stories of the hotel and restsurant.

This is a favorite restaurant for birthdays, entertaining out of the area guests, adult family-member gatherings, or just as a treat for ourselves. The service is outstanding, as is the food. (We have been enjoying this restaurant for over 20 years, and it has maintained excellent standards throughout!)

What an AMAZING expericence we had. We were treated like roalty from the moment we stepped foot in. We had our 3 children with us ages 10, 8 and 7. The wait staff even Thanked us for bringing the children in. It was very memorbale and made our event fabulous. Food was amazing! Great recomendations by the wait staff. All the way aroun A++++

From entry to exit, the service was questionable at best; Harold was the restaurant's only redeeming quality, and Nico, the valet's. Finally, the food: it lacked flavor distinct, 'twas rich in apathy, and devoid of mink.

My husband and I had a wonderful, special dinner at the English Grill at the Brown Hotel! It was a unique experience for us - much fancier than what we are used to - but absolutely wonderful!
The hot brown truly is the best in Kentucky!
We will definitely be back someday!

My husband and I had a special after Christmas get away to the Brown Hotel. We dined at the English Grill and had a wonderful experience. Everyone was so hospitable, friendly and kind. The food was fantastic and the atmosphere lovely. Nick, our waiter, did an amazing job and Harold offered the best in Southern Hospitality. We are from central Ohio, and Harold told us he had to make a good impression, because Louisville is the "northernmost point of southern hospitality". That he did. We have already told many of our friends and family about this place and would highly recommend it!

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and service until the end of our meal. I had seen a skillet go by our table just after we were seated. I'd asked our server and he said it was bread pudding. It had ice cream and a cookie of some kind on top.
After our meal we had wanted to order the bread pudding, but our server said he would be back to get our order. We waited quite some time while he presented wine, made a Caesar salad and never returned. We had to flag him down and when we tried to place our dessert order he then told us it would take 25 min. to prepare. I really wish he had taken our dessert order earlier since we had waited much longer than the preparation time already. We ordered another dessert which was okay, but was much smaller and definitely not what we wanted. It was not the ending we had hoped for. We rarely order dessert out so it was a treat, but it turned out to be a huge disappointment.
I enjoy a nice relaxing night out, but this 2 1/2 -3 hrs. ended on a sour note. We just wanted to get our check and go.

We had dinner at the English Grill for Christmas Eve. It is always a wonderful experience. The service and food is always excellent. Troy Ritchie certainly knows his wine and presented an excellent pairing within the price I requested.

This was a most enjoyable evening. The atmosphere was elegant, quiet and inviting . Our waiter was only in his second week but was thoroughly knowledgeable about the wine list and the menu. We dined on spare ribs and lamb shank. Both dishes were well prepared and beautifully presented.
The menu was a bit pricey but not exorbitant.
Great place. We will definitely go again when in Louisville.

My boyfriend and I went here to celebrate our one year and had the most incredible meal and overall experience! Whether you're celebrating or just want a delicious meal, The English Grill is divine! Wonderful staff and service all around.

A wonderful, traditional fine dining experience! Excellent food and service, beautiful atmosphere, very "clubby". The only downside to the evening was that they had run out of three menu items by the time we ordered (7:30 PM). Granted, it was a Thursday night and probably not normally a "busy" time but we did think it strange to have run out of three items. However, the chef himself came out to apologize and discuss alternative entrees, which turned out to be absolutely wonderful. We highly recommend the English Grill!

This visit was not nearly as nice as the last time. Service was slow, drinks were not refilled promptly, mashed potatoes were cold. Sea bass was good, but not great. The server was very pleasant, but had too many tables.

Went for Thanksgiving dinner. Food was good but not great, we were trying to find a dinner that wasn't a buffet and thought we had found one. Turns out entree was made to order but the rest was a buffet. For a dinner of this price and at this location we didn't want a buffet and really think that with most buffets the quality of food drops. To be fair the quantity does go up if this is what you are looking for.
Service was ok but also not great. I would expect with us getting up to get everything but the entree that the wait staff would have a lot less to do but ordering drinks took a long time.

We thoroughly enjoyed our thanksgiving dinner at the English grill and our subsequent brunch at j Graham's. The food was good and of particular note was the maitre d of j Graham's, Nicholas. He greeted us with an authentic warmth and graciousness that is often missing in the restaurant experience. He has a great attitude and was engaging in a very appropriate way. This type of experience invites you to come back.

We had made reservations for four people. We drove in from the Knoxville, TN, area and my sister and her boyfriend drove down from Chicago. We had the best time. Our 1:45 reservation was perfect as it was not overcrowded. The appetizers were varied and plentiful and the three choices for an entrée were positively wonderful. Last year we went to Chicago to the Palmer House. Our meal with you was much better. Thank you for the wonderful experience!!

The vast majority of the meal was well done.
The deserts left much to be desired, cake was dry, pies were tasteless. Their definition of medium well for beef dish is more towards medium, very red and bleeding all over my plate.
Service by the waitress was slow and prompting for beverages was constant.
