The menu has changed in recent months, but today's exceptional experience with Mark, one of the managers, will guarantee that we keep coming back!

Louie's is one of my favorite restaurants in the area. Seafood is amazing and the dishes never disappoint. The waitstaff are accommodating, attentive, friendly and knowledgeable. We have come here many times with our young son, on date nights and out with friends and every time, I say how much I love it there. Sit outside for a truly awesome sunset and you will be transported to a vacation mindset before you even finish your appetizer.

Louie's new chef has done a great job with the menu. Food is great and sitting right on Manhasset Bay is amazing. We spent a relaxing lunch there on a Monday. The ambiance was lovely and we had excellent service!! We split the whole branzino between the two of us and it was amazing. The menu is broad and there is something for just about everyone. Highly recommend.

Mediocre service, waiters were always around and some were distracted. Food was nicely prepared and averagely good. However, I still rate Longhorn Steakhouse number one (even though it's a chain).

All I have to say is WOW! I made a reservation after hearing about the new chef here. I am very familiar with his past restaurants and had high expectations for this visit and I cannot find one reason not to make this one of your go to restaurants for any occasion! The service was amazing! Usually it is very difficult to find great service at waterfront restaurants but the servers seems very well trained and knowledgeable. I had the Beef Short Rib lettuce cup and I wanted to order a couple more since it was so good! I am glad I did not as I had to save room for my entrée! I had the Berkshire Pork Chop as I am not a huge seafood person and it could not have been more flavorful! We also had the most unique dessert I have ever seen which was a sundae in a teapot and while it is carried through the dining room it is smoking! It is called the Holy Smoke and it was so fun! I have to say the new chef here did not disappoint and I will be back for the Happy Hour at the GORGEOUS bar! Next week is my birthday and already have reservations made to celebrate there! I can't wait!

Excellent food. Outstanding service. We got 18 oysters which were so fresh and yummy and the mignonette was perfect too! We also shared the fried seafood plate which was enough to feed two people comfortably and we asked to have the homemade potato chips instead of the sides that come with it.

They should close their doors right now. I had one of the worst meals of my life on Saturday September 24, 2016. They only serve two types of Vodka can you believe it. We had appetizers and before we were finished they were bringing us our main meals, talk about being rushed. We asked for the manager who came to the table and made excuses. The waitress had an attitude and she made us wait for anything else we asked for. We were there to celebrate a friends Birthday the brought out the cake and we waited 15 minutes for coffee. My husband asked the waitress about our coffee and she said did you not see when I placed the order for your coffee. The food was horrible as well. You have been warned go somewhere else...I heard that have new management. They will not last long at this rate.

They are getting by on location, location, location. The food is sub-par and the service is intermittent at best.
The bar is INSANE and almost too crowded to get to the outdoor seating. No one should have to scream to get by the rude patrons drinking and sloshing at the bar.

Had my son's 22nd birthday dinner here in Jan. 14th. Great food and drinks. Matt our waiter was friendly, fun, and very professional. This is my son's favorite restaurant whenever he is back in NY.

A wonderful view from the whether you drive or boat, you park your vehicle in the lot or by the dock and hop in for a delightful meal. The raw oysters are amazing. The food is pretty good not exactly great but the ambiance, service, the view make Louies a great dining experience.

Went back for the Brunchburger - Amazing! Delicious and filling, had to take half home to enjoy the following day. Have also eaten outside in the warm weather, as beautiful as it was delicious. Love their soups, too.

The waiter was a delight, even though he was having a slow night after Christmas. The entrees were very good, as always. The special salad appetizers, shrimp/grapefruit and mozzarella/tomato, were overpriced and smaller than expected. The Buehler wine was liked by two of the three diners.
