Lou's Food Bar
the right place for an easy outWe wanted something different with good food, a bit of high end flair but down to earth prices and comfort. Lou's fit the bill. Everything was delicious and nicely presented. Nothing adventurous but unique and original with big taste!6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food. Not crowded.Lou's was great – but a little deserted. The food, service and drinks were fantastic, but it was not very busy at 7:30PM on Friday night. Why is no one going to Lou's? I have eaten here many times and loved everything I've had. The service is always spot-on and the drink menu is among the best in the city. I suppose I shouldn't complain that it's not that hard to get a table at a fantastic restaurant, but you do have to wonder – what is up?6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGood collection of hand made foodLou's has a great selection of delectable items made on site. The sausage and trout pate were two of my favorites. The entrees were very tasty but its a great place to try small plates with a good wine selection.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMBrunch!Love their brunch menu. The eggs benedict is too die for. I would recommend the Duck Confit. They recently changed their menu a little, they now offer a cornbread cake in place of the english muffin. They actually had a potato galette sometime ago that was used in place of an english muffin. I highly recommend the potato galette. Great food, atmosphere and outside patio. Bloody Maries are delicious, they dill in the green olive garnish hits the spot.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a wonderful experienceWe had a wonderful experience on Sunday. Service (Randall) was attentive without being intrusive, and the food was outstanding.
We will be back and we will tell our friends. Thank you!5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMPossibly the best burger everThe menu provides only item names, with zero description. Thank goodness our server, Tim, knew the menu very well. He provided delicious details of all the items we were curious about. The Blackened Lou Burger may have been the best burger I've ever had. Unfortunately, the unmentioned horseradish was a disappointment on an otherwise great Cuban.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMOur first time and we lovedOur first time and we loved it! I had the spring prix fixe menu paired with wine which included fried green tomato(very crispy), mint crusted tenderloin (delicious) and profiteroles for dessert. My husband had the veal cutlet which was also excellent. We are sorry this place is not in our neighborhood but we will definitely make the uptown trip to go again. The only distraction was that it is very very loud--concrete floor amplifies everyone's conversations...5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMFANTASTIC foodCelebrated Mothers day at Lou's. Have never been before. The food was so good that I'm hungry just thinking about it! I absolutely LOVED the strawberry rhubarb french toast and Lou's Scramble is AWESOME!
plan to return SOON!
It's a small place, so the noise level can be a little annoying, but the service was good and the waiter was terrific!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved it!Took my friend here for a birthday brunch & it was fantastic! Bottomless pour-your-own mimosas & delicious food. We're going back next week for a prix-fixed dinner with wine pairings because they offered to make me a vegetarian entree! I'm beyond excited about it!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food, service, and cocktailsCame here for Mother's Day dinner with husband, mother, and toddler. Got the toddler a dish of mac & cheese which we all enjoyed. We all had sandwiches and burgers, which were well-executed. Loved my Old Fashioned cocktail. Our server was great.
Only slight mishap was that drink service was kind of slow - this could have been an overwhelmed bartender. Not that they weren't worth the wait. This was our second visit, and I'm sure we'll be back.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWe loved Lou's!!What a great experience for Mother's Day Brunch. Plan to go again and again! Our server was so accommodating. We all had a hard time deciding what to have--every item looked like something we wanted to try! (Of course, that means we will be going back!). Loved the contemporary, casual atmosphere inside. Frank Bannano knows how to do it right!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAs usual, very good food andAs usual, very good food and service. Nice place for dinner, been there several times and it has been consistently good.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of the best meals we'veOne of the best meals we've had in a long time. Menu is small but everything is absolutely delicious. Be sure try the homemade sausage nd the cheese sandwiches, they were fantastic.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMLou's is a place I used toLou's is a place I used to visit regularly, and by that I mean every other week or more. The last few times I went there, the food was not quite up to my expectations. I felt they lost their lack of consistency, and that could be the problem with excellent restaurants, if they slip just a little, it seems a worse experience than going to a restaurant you already know might not be consistent. Either way, my last visit everything was fantastic. The food was everything I had originally come to expect from Lou's. The service was great. I guess my only complaint this time is that they switched from Coca-Cola to Boylan Soda. I'm an avid Diet Coke drinker, and Boylan's diet soda is not very good.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a wonderful brunch!We had a wonderful brunch! Our server was very helpful and gave great recommendations. The food was delicious. The restaurant was busy at brunch and it was noise, but not overwhelming and our party still had an easy time chatting. Great find! We will be back!!4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMNice BrunchWe enjoyed brunch there on Sunday. I had the omelette du jour with pork belly, cipollini onions, and spanish cheese. It was delightful. The side of roasted potatoes were great. My husband had the chicken fried biscuit and he said the biscuit was amazing.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMLou's Food Bar is one of ourLou's Food Bar is one of our favorites. Drinks are great.

I love Lou's more and more each time I go.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMThe BEST Fried Cicken in the State!WOW! My second trip here...this time for the Tuesday night chicken special. It's the best fried chicken in town! And for $20 you get four huge pieces, potatoes, beans and a beer. We split the meal and added a drink and were stuffed. We also decided to make it a once a month event and invite all our mates! WOW!4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMFlavorful ideas for a picky eaterWe have been to Lou's several times including a paring dinner. The menu is always fresh and with a few fun comfort items. This trip my wife enjoyed the wonderful moist fried chicken. The skin was good and crispy the sides were one of the best creamy mash potatoes we have had in a while. My mother had the braised short ribs, and were nice enough to deal with her madness being upset over Brussels sprouts and substituted the kale. In the end she truly enjoyed the meal. I had the beef strip loin with potatoes au gratin which were the hit of the table. Overall our server was wonderful and accommodating to the picky eater we brought along. The grilled artichoke was a fun light way to start the meal.4/11/2013 12:00:00 AMWait staff appropriately attentive.Wait staff appropriately attentive. Good variety of appetizers, salads and main dishes. All four in our party ordered a differt selection and all were pleased.

My coq au vin was richly flavorful and satisfying. The burgers looked and tasted delicious as well. The 20-somethings really enjoyed the cocktails. The under 21's loved the mocktail choices. Well-priced, excellent service. We'll be back.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious!I had the most delicious salad at Lou's Food Bar. It was my first time going to this restaurant and it was great! My party was 7 gals and I thought it was a good atmosphere for a big group. I would recommend Lou's Food Bar.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMFriendly staff and excellentFriendly staff and excellent food. Prices are a bit high for the area, but worth it. French style comfort food is not something you get everyday, which makes it all that more special.3/12/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent brunch experience!Excellent brunch experience!
