We had a great experience at Louies for Sunday brunch!
Great brunch, amazing variety
After a meeting in the building next door. Wonderful meal.
Our second visit to Louies Modern. This trip we (4) each had a different fish entre. We were all happy with our meals fish was prepared and cooked perfevtly. We will return. An added benefit. There's a parking garage that makes it possible to park and walk protected from summer rain downfalls.
Service was slow. Forgot a few requests. Crab Louie salad was terrible. Tasteless crab and two shrimp cut in half No taste, no value
Took my mom out for Mother’s Day, it’s her favorite restaurant downtown , we had a party of nine, had a Great time, service was excellent, Everyone Loved there dinner!!! We will Defiantly be back!!
Had a great dinner! Food was very good.
Excellent service, preparation and presentation.
We loved this place. We had friends come from out of town and we wanted somewhere downtown with great food.
We had a wonderful waitress and the food was amazing. Will be back soon.
Another great meal. Cauliflower flat bread was delicious and definitely sharable. Halibut special was perfectly prepared. Key lime panna cotta was a light and tasty treat. Outstanding service. Will be back.
Limited menu. Salmon was dry. Soft rolls were delicious
Great food and excellent service! A must enjoy for anyone visiting or living in Sarasota County!
In the past I really liked the menu and ambiance of the restaurant. Don’t care for new menu. And what used to be good service turned pretty bad. The host was surely, and the service took way too long. Although I don’t care for servers ‘hanging over you’ , my wine took forever to be brought to the table, we needed to ask for lemon, ice, and bread more than a couple times. Louie Moderns definitely was not as good as in the past . Will not hurry back.
We love the kale Cesar and the pork chop is thick, juicy and flavorful.
Outstanding meal. Probably the best grilled black grouper I have eaten in Florida.
There is one thing that you really must change.....Scotch choices!
We were very shocked!
For steadfast Scotch drinkers....Johnny Black and Chivas are constants!
You really MUST carry, one of the two.
Dewars is a lower quality and your other choice Kings something???? We had never heard of......only some want a Single Malt choice.
Eating at Louie's Modern was it amazing dining experience. The food was fantastic. The wait staff was extremely friendly, professional, and knowledgeable.
Great service and unusual menu! Overall, experience was great and they were accommodating even though we were late.
We had a 1:00 pm Sunday reservation, and the restaurant was not very crowded, happily. There was a large group housed in another room, which worked well.
Many of the breakfast items were in steam trays, and much of that had been there too long. The cheese grits had dried out, and were actually not warm-not sure how that worked. Many of the other items on the steam line could easily have been replaced. The made to order items were satisfactory, and that was fine. The shellfish offerings were quite good, both the shrimp and crab legs.
The brunch is not inexpensive, and as many have commented, it seems silly to charge $4 for coffee, tea and soft drinks, when you are also offering unlimited mimosas and Bloody Mary drinks for a single $5 upcharge. Go big and include the non-alcoholic beverages in the price of the $35 buffett.
Arrived at the prebooked time, but when we got there the kitchen was closed because of an unspecified "problem in the kitchen"
Can't say anything about the food because I never got to taste it.
Always a special dinner setting. Contemporary and sophisticated with an innovative menu, great presentation & delicious food.
Good new menu.
We had dinner with some friends prior to a movie. First we enjoyed a drink at the bar during happy hour (one of their excellent signature cocktails). We all loved our meals - a roast chicken dish, a corvina fish entree, and crab Louie salads. Everything was well-prepared, attractive, and tasted great. The sides were interesting, too. The service was excellent, and we made it to our movie on time.
The Brunch is outstanding!!! Well worth the price and drive for those outside of the Sarasota/Manatee area.
A great Sunday brunch. Best in Sarasota!!
The reason we rated the service lower is because our meals arrived way to quickly, we had not finished our appetizers. This after the waiter told us the kitchen was behind...which was fine with us as we were not in any hurry. This is not cool !
We triple dated and had a marvelous evening. The staff was attentive and helpful. The menu was varied and we all found something we liked. The food was prepared well and we all enjoyed it. We loved the desserts we tried and the coffee was great! I loved the location and free under 3 hour parking in the attached garage is a bonus. We would definitely go again!!
Beautiful modern, sophisticated restaurant. Excellent service. The food was good, but not excellent. They need to turn it up a notch. It didn't have that special something that I was expecting. I might try it again.
Good food, interesting menu. Service very very slow, nearly an hour to get mains...
Deliciously prepared food, really great service staff. Favorite of ours!
disappointing from past experiences here. service very slow. food doesn’t seem quite as good.
The meal and service were good. We were seated at the only “two top” in the Resturant which (although it was way too small to have dinner and bread basket at same time) would have been unremarkable but for the fact 30% of the tables were empty. The host chose to seat all guest Tightly squeezed into one side of the restaurant with a few tables scattered throughout the rest. So I had the luxury of hearing all of the surrounding tables conversation on a night when they were not very busy. The point is ; attention to small details matters and when you have a $200 meal you should feel special when it is an option. I️ would have asked to be reseated but the couple ahead of us had arrived 15 min before there reservation and were told to have a seat at the bar, I️ expected all the tables to be full. At least 30% of the tables remained open through our dinner, we finished around 9:30 which is well past the dinner time in Sarasota .
Took friends from NYC. They could not believe that such a sophisticated restaurant could be in Sarasota.
We had a great dinner here with friends. The service was good and so was the food. We parked upstairs in the parking garage, super convenient !
Our food was excellent. Server was forgetful and would state he could not remember and walk away from the table when we asked him regarding buffet, drinks, etc.
Best restaurant we have been to in a while! Everything was perfectly seasoned-not too salty and tasted perfect
Such a great spot! We love this spot! Always great food and a fun atmosphere! Never disappoints and you must order the burratta!
