The English Grill at Brown Hotel Ratings and Reviews
The English Grill had an outstanding menu, a beautiful linen table setting, historic elegant feel, and impeccable service. The food was creative and everyone in my party of 12 raved on the quality of every entrée we ate. Highly recommended for entertaining clients!
Great food ambience. Good noise control. Menu and wine list encompassing. Knowledgeable manager on wines. Only issue was apparently new/untrained waiter. Didn't know what spinach salad looked like and recommended the lamb chops because had cute little bones sticking out. I had to repour all of our 80.$ wine bottle. That said was a nice evening and any concerns became a fun conservation shared!!
I took my 13 year old daughter here for her birthday. She loved the restaurant and her meal. She told me that it was the nicest restaurant she had ever visited and her Filet was delicious. She is small and I was surprised that she ate her entire meal. The Waiter was friendly and helpful and a hostess was kind enough to take our photograph. It was one of the highlights of our "Father Daughter Birthday Weekend"
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.
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.
Celebrating a double birthday. Food great but service deplorable. When we spoke to manager, he apologized, said he would make our next visit "special" but no specifics. Three of us four are NOT interested in giving the English Grill another chance. Very disappointed in the manager response.
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++++
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.
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.
