    We used to like going to this restaurant. We made a reservation and when we arrived it was boarded up and the sign has been taken down. Thought you should know that they have gone out of business

    Food was awesome and so was service. Sat outside on a Friday night so the motorcycles on Bardstown road were obnoxious but that’s not within Ramsi’s control. The outdoor patio has such great ambiance and my elderly parents loved sitting by the fountain!

    Strike one--we had a dinner reservation for our birthday reservation at 7pm--we did not get seated until 7:25pm. Strike two--the food was average for the high prices charged. Strike three--this was a birthday being celebrated and nothing was done by the restaurant to honor this event. We won't be back.

    Ramsi’s is on the go to List for our family for 26 years. Unfortunately our food and wait time for our food was subpar. Our sever was pleasant and engaging. She was attentive as well. Unfortunately it took so long for our food to arrive that she filled my water glass four times. Once the food arrived the order was in correct. My stir fry was good but could have been great if the chicken I asked for was included. Amazingly my daughter ordered the Thai noodles and she got chicken even though she did not order it. There was so much fluid in her dish that her noodles returned to paste. But she did eat the bonus chicken. Please stay committed to your wonderful dishes that always outshined the environment and the service. It has always been worth it. .

    We showed up about 10-12 minutes prior to our reservation time (7:00p on a Monday evening). this restaurant - Ramsi's - DID NOT honor our Open Table reservation! We were told by the front-of-house that; (a.) we did not make a reservation because they did not have a reservation for us, and then (b.) well actually, their computers were down, so which of 3 or 4 res. services did we use? they didn't knowl..., and then (c.) well, they were pretty booked up, but they'd drop us in the bar - - for dinner, nort for drinks. The bar was exceedingly noisy, but that's all they had (for folks with NO RESERVATION!) When I enquired how long before an honest-to-God "dinner" table would be available, her response was, "oh "long"...a long time....a *really* long time!" time, yes....time for us to go....and we did. the folks that own/operate Ramsi's are great, but as for the new front-of-house? as my wife says, "pay peanuts and you'll get monkeys!"

    Reservation at 7:15pm. Sat on the patio. It was a little hotter than I expected. Better when the sun went below horizon. Food and beverage quality and service was great. Occasional road noise but not a problem.

    Had some out of town guest arrive unexpectedly, all with different dietary specifications- so of course it was Ramsi’s Wow! Everyone was pleased. Two were from out of town, so first timers! From the time we were greeted at the door, everything was perfect. Our server was amazing. Not only very pleasant but made some suggestions for the ‘newbies’ - their orders deviated from the menu, and entrees were perfect. I ordered the pollo Nuevo Havana, but with limas vs stir fry- awesome! My date ordered the Z-Steak and was totally impressed- looked great but I don’t eat meat. The others ordered the Egyptian Kitchen and Salmon Sonesta. Lol!! I’ve never seen our group so quiet- oink - oink! Service was exceptional , the newbies couldn’t get over the plants, artwork and general ambience. The crowd was very diverse, a definite plus in my book. Ramsi is an outstanding chef and person, and his three children working there are definitely examples of great parenting. All of the staff were friendly and professional. We didn’t have dessert, although temping. The drinks from the bar topped off our evening. Upon leaving we were thanked for our patronage and told to come back again The entire experience was outstanding Highly recommend Ramsi’s

    Friends came into town, and it had to be Ramsi’s. I won’t argue with that. I had the Grouper Nuevo Havana and it was amazing. Maybe another new favorite, like everything on the menu. Staff is always amazing, welcoming and very attentive. The others had the the Lamb Chops, Z-Steak, and Salmon Sonesta. Everyone was pleased. Thank you Ramsi and staff- Highly recommended!!

    Dining at Ramsi’s Cafe is always a great experience. The food, service, and ambiance are all impressive. Portion sizes are huge, and costs surprisingly reasonable. Their menu is extensive, and includes all dietary preferences , and most of their ingredients are from their Organic farm, or from other farms here locally. The ambience takes you away from todays hectic living, a great escape. Their artwork and entrees expose you to various parts of our world. It’s a favorite for visiting friends, and most of us locals. The staff makes you feel at home, and always willing to please. Yes, I’m a ‘frequent flyer’ - lol, I’m there often, have eaten about everything on the menu, and never disappointed.

    My husband and I wanted to take my brother and his girlfriend who were visiting from PA out for dinner. Everything was nice, really no complaints until my brother went to use the restroom. He said it was disgusting, filthy and the handle on the door was very loose. Why couldn’t the owner at least fix the door handle?
