Decided to eat at Rivue for brunch prior to going to the Kentucky Center for a play on Sunday. It was pricey, but the rotating room/atmosphere was awesome and the food was really good.

Go hungry, because there is a lot of food, and you will want to try everything! And the view of the riverfront is awesome.

Located on the 25th floor the restaurant rotated completely in 45 minutes giving a great view if the river and city. The quality of the food and service was excellent. The meal was a little pricey but well worth it. Definitely give it a try.

We enjoyed the lovely view of the city from this revolving restaurant. The brunch was just average -- desserts were the best thing.
