Sorry, no longer a favorite – I took my son here for his Birthday because he said it was his "favorite" place on the strip. Cool (said I) as I had never been here before. I was excited and ready for a change. The change is, that we will NEVER return and my son couldn't believe he ever liked this place. The food was horrible, not cooked, cold in places like it was frozen before popping it in the microwave. I mean, McDonald's would have been better. We left 7/8 of our food on our plates, I reported to the waiter, (whose fault it was NOT) that there must be something wrong with the cook. He looked at me, then looked at our plates. We walked, didn't pay, I refused... I could not even swallow the food. My son ate his bread. The humas omg it was like wallpaper paste. Unbelievable. Don't waste your money.
Horrible Service + Mgmt Does not Care = Horrible Experience – I used to like this place, but the last time we went, we waited over an hour for the food to be served, when it was served, we got the wrong thing. When we complained to Mgmt, they basically said "we're really busy, tough luck, maybe we could give a free desert or something". Seriously! It was about the shittiest I've ever been treated at a restaurant, and, quite frankly, we were shocked.
I was really, really disappointed with the restaurant, even though the servers/staff were trying their best, Mgmt appeared unconcerned with guest satisfaction. It really just ruined our day. I do not recommend place anymore.
Kind of hum drum on flavor – I tried this restaurant the other day and it was not what I expected. I had the jerk chicken sandwich and it was so dry. My potatoes were over cooked. My server hovered over me like she did not understand the unwritten boundaries of personal space, especially when two people are having a conversation on a date. I was disappointed over all.
Original and Fun – This is one of my favorite restaurants in Louisville. The menu features a wide variety of cuisines from everywhere. I have always enjoyed coming here, even before the renovated.
The bar features different microbrews from across the country, which is one of my favorite features.
Highly recommend the Panini a Caprese.
Good Selection, Tastes Good, Great Price – Perfect for every occasion and there is something here for everyone. Good price. Great for a date.
More is not better – There was a time when it was the best place in the highlands.it offered excellent consistant cuisine and await staff that was that friendly and extremely professional.that is on longer the case.we miss the wonderful food and the old loyal knowledgable staff.bad by the owner.
Tasty Cubean Burrito made for Two – My husnband and I love their Cubean Burrito. It comes with a great queso and it's plenty for two meals!
If you don't like it...your too picky – As someone who recently moved to the area, I have just started going to Ramsi's and love it. Ignore all the bad comments. Some people are just too hard to please. Maybe it was better, years ago, I don't no. The fact is, the food here is really good. No, it's not gormet, 5 star dining, but you're not paying for that. You can get a meal from $7 to around $20. Since we moved here last May, we have tried a lot of restaurants, and this is our favorite. We moved from Houston, where there are thousands of excellent restaurants, but we never found anything like Ramsi's. The variety, price, and quality is perfect. There is something for everyone here, even vegetarians. We had a group of 13 for my wife's birthday on 2/28/09, and everyone was pleased with their meal. The service was outstanding. We brought in a cake and they took care of that for us, even put the candles on it. They brought it out at dessert time and we all sang. Then they took the cake back, cut it up in even servings for everyone, put it on a plate, and garnished it with a sliced strawberry and strawberry sauce! We were not expecting them to go that far out of their way, especially since we were not purchasing their desserts. My wife had the tortellini and I had the fish with crab cakes, and they were both great. One person in our party had the lamb chops. He thought they were a little under cooked, but they took it back and cooked a little longer. He said they tasted really good, but still a little undercooked. Someone else had the Thai noodles and another person had the greek salad and both were enjoyed as well. That's really all I remember as specifics, but everyone did say that they were pleased with the food. I have had the Huevo chicken in the past and it is always great. The magician visiting individual tables was very nice and did not bother anyone who did not want to be entertained. Don't pay attention to the bad reviews. Only advice, do the call ahead seating if you have a group larger than 8.
Catttt – A group of six of us had dinner at Ramsi's a few nights ago. Only one of us loved our dinner - the brisket was flavorful but the patato latkes served with it were horrid and made from a mix....the rest of the food was okay - a large plate of chicken and rice was flavorless....the prices are good - just wish they would bump up the flavors in the food.
Ruined by success – There was a time when Ramsis Cafe on the World was the best little restaurant in the Highlands, back when Ramsi actively ran the place. But they have expanded several times since then, with each expansion diluting the service and quality of the food -- this is why I call success the kiss of death. These days, it's hit-or-miss. I too love the tortellini which usually comes out consistently good, but other dishes have, well, sucked. My advice: Peruse the menu with a critical eye and be mindful for dishes that the kitchen can't mess up.
