Seviche is incredible.
Twice we've enjoyed delicious meals here. Most recently, we took three friends with us so we could sample many dishes before writing a review. We've sampled many appetizers, but the ones that truly stand out have been the wild mushroom and goat cheese empanadas. Served with a tomato based sauce, the flavors explode in your mouth. Chef Lamas uses locally produced products in this dish, as with all his creations. The server prepares a delicious fresh guacamole at tableside. The highlight of the appetizer course were mussels in a spicy cilantro broth, which is good enough to finish with a spoon. A great bargain at $8, there are easily enough for 2-3 people to share. Calamari were breaded in a tempura type coating with strips of peppers and a spicy dipping sauce.A recent addition to the menu is a grilled octopus appetizer, which we'll try on our next visit. There are many different types of seviches (ceviches) only a couple which are the lime marinated variety. You can order a sampler or even a spoonful. The entrees are varied and have many things which appeal to all diners. Flavors are from subtle to explosive! On this night, I chose the ahi tuna of the day which came with macademia nut rice and mussels in a very spicy sauce. Perfect. The roasted vegetable chimichanga with gouda and butternut squash sauce is simply the best veggie entree I've ever had. It is huge, but you'll devour every bite.
Atmosphere is cozy, dim lighting. Service is good. Outdoor seating during season and blissfully smoke free. No wonder this restaurant won the "Best Restaurant in Louisville" award from local diners in LEO magazine's poll. 5 stars, don't miss it.
This restaurant is much more then dining, the service is wonderful and the decor is done in a very subtle but passionate delivery. I have enjoyed several meals here and look forward to my next, the entrees are proportioned perfectly, the appetizers are hard to pick because each is so good and the soups are out of this world.
