Went with wife, daughter and boyfriend after seeing it featured on Top Chef. Perhaps four of the most enjoyable hours of a lifetime. Had the four course menu; cuisine, service and ambient were top level. Yes, it's not inexpensive, but when you're seeking food as art, you expect to pay more, and at 610 you get what you pay for.

Our family and friends of six adults wanted to have a festive, special and wonderful dinner for Christmas Eve -- that I did not cook. As soon as an email came out about a special dinner at 610 Magnolia popped up in my in-basket, I replied immediately to reserve. I was thrilled with the results. This tiny restaurant, tucked into...

I emailed the general manager, Lindsey, in advance for a reservation and let her know we'd be celebrating my husband's 50th birthday. We had an outstanding experience that made my husband's birthday perfect. They acknowledged his birthday straight away and made us feel very special without being over the top. The restaurant is quaint, comfortable, not at all stuffy. The... More

We are from the Washington, DC area, and are familiar with Chef Edward Lee from his wonderful restaurant Succotash at National Harbor, so naturally we wanted to visit 610 when we were in Louisville. The drinks, the meal, the service -- everything was right on! I would highly recommend this place to anyone!

We did the four course tasting, and thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Great flavors in interesting combinations. But our waiter seemed totally flummoxed that we didn't want to order alcohol, and kept asking "are you sure?" Yes, we're sure. No, you don't need to ask us five times. It was off putting, and I felt like he just wanted us to... More

610 Magnolia is one of our top restaurants of all times! The food, service, atmosphere, pace, wine and spirit lists are all superb! It's not very common that a restaurant can pull all theses factors together seemingly effortlessly! I can't say enough how much we enjoyed the whole experience! Chef Edward Lee's menu is to die for, very innovative and... More

We decided on 610 Magnolia after looking for a date night spot on our weekend trip to Louisville. First, the location is somewhat off the beaten path and when you pull up, you aren't really sure this is where you're supposed to be. Other than having the address, there's not really a sign. When you walk in, you are basically... More

First dining experience at 610 Magnolia. The offerings were unique but food quality and taste fair to poor. We both had lamb chops which were under-cooked and fatty. Tried the duck instead which was good but not great. Portion size was small. Service was attentive and very good. Overall, as one of the most expensive restaurants in Louisville I expected... More

We had heard about this place from TV and top chef and it was as good as we could have hoped for. Great atmosphere and the food was so delicious. Do the wine pairing--you will not regret it. Chef Edward Lee was so gracious and Ricardo the sommelier was very knowledgeable and approachable. 5 stars

While the ambience is business casual, the dishes are extraordinary: ingenuously created melding of ingredients executed with outstanding craft. For those frightened by the prix fixe prices, try Tuesday dinner which is a la carte. Given the quality of the cooking and the service, 610 Magnolia offers good value for the money any night.
