The Automobile Club of America – which every knows as AAA – has released its 2016 Diamond ratings, the way it distinguishes top restaurants, and five Louisville restaurants are among the top tier in AAA’s estimation.

Only one restaurant received the 5 Diamond rating, the highest accolade, and that is perennial winner The Oakroom at the Seelbach Hilton. The  Diamonds make it among the top 0.2 percent of restaurants that AAA reviews.

Four other restaurants in the city received 4 Diamonds, a worthwhile feather in their caps for sure. Those restaurants are Corbett’s-An American Place, The English Grill at the Brown Hotel, Vincenzo’s Restaurant and Z’s Oyster Bar & Steakhouse.

The complete list of Diamond rated restaurants and hotels is available here so you can see the kind of competition our local businesses have elsewhere.
