A word from Hotel Fauchere - Bar Louis
Located at the ground floor level of the Hotel, Bar Louis is a stylish, ultra-modern environment for casual and late-night dining, amazing beer selection and great cocktails. The sleek space was designed by architect William Reue to be “subtle, timeless and elegant.” An enormous Christopher Makos photograph of Andy Warhol and John Lennon sits behind the bar. The rest of the bar has photography by the Hilton Brothers, a collaboration between Makos and photographer Paul Solberg.
David Pirozzi and his culinary team combine classic and modern cuisine in the Brasserie style restaurant.

    I really wanted to like this restaurant, as the history is fantastic and it's got an awesome picture of John Lennon in the Bar, however, it fell short on many levels. The food was just average. We ordered short ribs and while they were tender, they had little flavor. Someone had recommended the tuna pizza, so I ordered it thinking it would be great. It wasn't. The tuna had a strong fishy taste and the fried rise crust was too thick and flavorless. The service was just fair-not what you would expect for a pricey restaurant in a lovely hotel.

    Huge wine and beer list. Knowledgeable wait staff recommended local wine and beer specialties that we loved. We ordered several small plates that were large enough to share -- many of them-- all were excellent, especially the day’s special, fried calamari sticks. Then we shared larger dinner dishes (or opted for salad as a main course). .

    My wife and I ate at Bar Louis at Hotel Fauchere twice this weekend. We had lunch in their patio and dinner on the front porch. The food was well presented, creative and tasty. My wife, who is Vegan, was accommodated by their chef who prepared a beautiful Portobello Mushroom Napoleon. They also make a terrific kale salad. The ambiance is beautiful on a summer night. We also went downstairs to have a cocktail inside. It was equally beautiful....and don't forget to try their bakery next store for breakfast!!

    Food immensely improved. Service a little slow, but it was a busy Saturday evening. There were five of us; all were satisfied. had a ribeye cooked to perfection. Consistency was a big issue; waiting to see if that will be greatly improved as well. Am a local resident and have been twice since the change - so far so good.

    As a local resident, I had stopped going to Bar Louis: the food was erratic as well as the service. They now have a new chef and I went for dinner with a visiting colleague. The food was excellent; the choices varied; the service attentive. Would definitely recommend it for dinner. Make a reservation on the weekend; the place was full by 7pm on a Friday.

    4 out of 5 dinners were under cooked. Veal was rubbery, fatty, and underdone. Tomato salad was perfection, though. This place is up and down in quality. Maybe the chef was on vacation? Too bad. We'll try again.

  • Nice - but very overpriced
    OpenTable Diner Since 2009VIP
    Dined on 8/19/2013
    Bar Louis was very nice. It was clean, had a good atmosphere, was quiet and the service was good. They do use mostly all organic and local food sources, which is a big plus in their favor. However, the quality of the entrees seemed to be hit or miss. I had a chicken dish, in which the chicken was absolutely delicious but the grilled zucchini was limp, mushy and oily. My wife had a filet which she said was not very well seasoned. My son had a huge burger that he absolutely loved. The biggest drawback was the price. We spent $250+ on 3 people. I do not object to the price in and of itself. I have spent that much before at other restaurants, but based on the quality of food I simply did not think it was worth the cost here.

    Bar Louis is an incredible find anywhere, but completely unexpected in Milford, PA. We have never been disappointed and are often thrilled by what arrives at our table. On our most recent visit, the highlight was a delightful Shaved Vegetable Flatbread. I don't know how long it will be on the menu - which changes seasonally - but, if it's available, I highly encourage diners to give it a try.

  • THE place to dine in Milford, Pa.
    OpenTable Diner Since 2010VIP
    Dined on 6/8/2013
    When in Milford, Pa., the Hotel Fauchere delivers on every level when it comes to dining. I'm sure the same attention to detail holds true for the accomodations as well. The energy of the place is inviting and yet eclectic at the same time. Great food pairings and presentation make for a memorable experience. Do not miss the chance to go there.

  • Bar Louis - Raise the Bar
    TomW
    Dined on 5/11/2013
    Try the Delmonico Room upstairs and pass on Bar Louis Bar Louis is always too warm. All of my guests complained about the room temperature and they were actively sweating it through. You would think a restaurant in a basement would be easy to cool? Not enough space at the booth for the food. Staff were inattentive , but then the lady in charge pounced when I had a mouthful, poor timing. The only thing special anymore about this place is the painting behind the bar....and that is just because who didn't love John Lennon and Andy Warhol? So my verdict for Bar Louis, like the passing of those two greats,.... it is done. Stick a fork in it! Yours, Tom Wolfe

    We have dined at Bar Louis several times. For us, it is an oasis built on a true reverence for food, wine and spirits in a casual atmosphere. Menu features the best quality ingredients, dishes are creative and the drink pairings always make it the best way to fully enjoy the meal. Each meal has been so satisfying and a lot of fun.

    We really enjoyed our experience at Hotel Fauchere, the staff was great and the food was excellent. The only problem we had was they were out of several food items on the menu, but we go very late in the evening. We sat @ 9:45 pm after a movie so that might account them not having everything we were looking for. Overall I will return there and do highly recommend them.

    We had dinner here the night before Thanksgiving. The wait staff was overwhelmed by the number of covers. My guess is that they have a skeletal crew off season which may explain incredible long waits for food and for requests for items like knives and forks. The food was reasonably good although how the chicken risotto got its name is a puzzle. The dish consisted of two bits of fried chicken wings over a bed of rice. The short ribs should have cooked longer. The Hamburger was a bit of a puzzle as well. There are virtually no other options for anything approaching fine dining in the area so this is pretty much it.
