The warm jar of King Crab and the Whipped Goat Cheese was excellent. The Catfish entree was just ok but the sauce the accompanied it was tasteless. My husband had the 71 days aged Ribeye was good but came med rare oppose to medium as ordered. Our sides the grilled asparagus, lobster Mac and truffle Parmesan fries. Were just ok especially the truffle Parmesan fries, not a lot of truffle or Parmesan at all. This was our 20 anniversary dinner and it was disappointing.

We had an amazing time for my birthday. The food and drinks were good along with the service. Miguel was knowledgeable and explained all the dishes due to it being our first time. I would definitely return back to try other dishes.

The service by Miguel was excellent and everything from drinks to after dinner coffee was perfect. The steak is not to missed but crab cakes are my favorite. Never had a bad experience. Give downtown Louisville a try! We were safe and had a great dinner

Our server was great, but the price overall was a bit much for the food. $12 for greens salad with cheese and walnuts is ridiculous.

Very enjoyable experience EXCEPT for the cocktails. Requested a Manhattan and provided clear instructions on how I wanted it prepared. The Manhattan was not prepared per my direction, it was served in a cordial type glass rather than a Martini style glass. EXPENSIVE and DISAPPOINTING.

Overall Great experience. Was looking for an upscale eatery downtown and Brnedon's Catch 23 was highly recommended by fellow colleagues. Long Wine list, wonderful steaks, and very helpful waiter. Will be at the top of our list for Date Night again.

Parking is an issue to start. They don't valet like others in the similar area, in the similar price range of restaurants. Our waiter was attentive, but we were taken aback by the worries he shared that any substitutions of the menu sides would be "frowned up" by the chef. Last I checked I am the customer and should be the one pleased??? The food overall was high quality and presentation was good. The tuna tartare was served with only one wonton chip and 4 small toast points. When we requested more the waiter brought four small wonton chips. Not impressed with their portioning out simple wonton chips, for a $20 appetizer. I believe the drinks to be overpriced for their portion. We paid $15 for a small champagne glass of moscato, that sales retail for $13.99/bottle. A bit much in my opinion. The Mixed Grill was a great selection in our opinion. It is a bit noisy and there was a congregation of people near our table at one point that were awaiting their table. Overall a good experience but we won't run back. More impressed with other downtown restaurants of similar type and price range.

The food was really good but my chicken dish was a little soggy from the sauce that it said in and it had a panko encrusting on the outside so that was a little disappointing. But overall it was a nice dinner. I did set a reservation but when I arrived we still had to wait 15 minutes and there were more than half of the tables in the restaurant that were empty. The hostesses were not very friendly and seemed more interested in their phones and talking to each other versus guest and explaining why there was a wait and plenty of open tables.
