Price are little high for the food, & alcohol especially. Flavor is very good. Service was great! Gluten free items were also great. A little noisy. I understand acoustical tiles upside down for a different look, but maybe every other one should be turned over so they can be used as intended. Overall a good meeting place.

Service was good, horderves was good but expensive. One of the cheese's we orders was triple cream, they serve as bri said it was the same but I know better. I ordered spicy shrimp, it had good taste but only 5 shrimp and lots and lots of macaroni. The manager saved a few pennies but at the expense of the customer.
We ordered $50 Pinot noir wine and it was very good.

Great service
Exec Chef came to table to discuss meal prep

My husband has a severe allergy to red meat

Went out of his way to make sure we could rest assured kitchen could handle
Delicious meal. Soft shell crab for me and tacos no red meat. The specials were delicious
My husband said he would go back and order double portion tacos!!
Had a great time and server was amazing as well
We’ll be back

Very deceiving from the outside. Such a cute place with great food! I ordered the avocado toast with an egg. Not a lot of food. My friend got a burger and it was delicious! I'll be back.

My wife and I have just recently discovered Louie's Wine Dive. We consider ourselves to lean toward the 'foodie' side of the continuum and man, does Louie's ever deliver! While everything we tried was fantastic, we find ourselves trying not to eat too fast as we have always ended our meals there with their amazing Beignets for desert as they are truly special and leave us with a strong desire to return! We are already big fans and look forward to returning.

It is a nice atmosphere. My wife had salmon salad, she said it was good. I had the spicy shrimp diablo, is was more of a Chef Boyardee ravioli with shrimp. No spice at all, do not recommend, or pick up a can from the grocery store.

Our group of 8 had a wonderful Mother’s Day brunch. Great service, food was delicious. The eggs benedict with crab cakes were outstanding (i. e., it actually tasted like fresh crab, which is not often the case). The beignets were out-of-this-world, and large enough that the entire table was able to sample them. Can’t wait to go back....

Once again, amazing. I adore squeaky cheese. My boyfriend ordered Caesar with steak and they brought steak and fries. He ate it, but when Vic realized it he brought the salad also. Great wine suggestions, the only down side is the fabulous but expensive wine that I love!

Went for the wine selection, however was blown away at the food. The flank steak (Steak Frites) was the best I've ever had (this includes France btw). They put garlic chips on the steak, and asked for medium rare. It was unbelievably delicious.
The Sinatra burger was delicious as well. Don't let the ingredients of the burger fool you, the chef knows the formula for what makes it work in your mouth. It was wonderful!

We love Louie’s, it’s where we bring all our guests from out of town. The food is amazing every time we never have to worry about Louie’s showing up to represent the food and culture of Kansas City. In fact it’s where we got engaged. Service is outstanding and reminds me of the impeccable service you received at the Savoy. Christopher (Chris) is a dream to have as a host. I’m always extra giddy when we get him. Our favorite is the Bar-Keep whose name we never remember but it’s a classic millennial name and she has a Great Dane. I feel as if we’re being entertained in her home. I can’t sing the praises of Louie’s enough.

I was skeptical of ordering the rueben since Louie's obviously isn't an Irish restaurant but I was extremely happy I did!

It was delicious and I ate every last bite. The service was wonderful and friendly and the booth was large and comfortable.

I will be back soon!

Bloody Mary and mimosas are really overpriced. Anytime a drink is within $3-4 of meal, it’s too expensive!
I asked for crisp bacon but didn’t expect it to be burned. Waiter didn’t return to ask about meal, and I didn’t want to flag him down and interrupt conversation with my friend, so I left it on plate. The biscuits was super dry and broke into crumb bits. No possibility of eating as a bread item.
I was surprised they weren’t busier at Sunday brunch but now I understand. No desire to return.

While the food and service here are outstanding, our entire experience was ruined because of the antics of two little boys at an adjacent table, who thought it would be great fun to climb on the backs of our chairs, try to knock over our wine glasses and crawl under our table as we attempted to eat. Parents couldn't have cared less and what's the restaurant supposed to do? Have a babysitting room???? I've seen this over and over again at this restaurant, and we won't be back. Why would we spend $150 (with tip) for a nice dinner when we can't even enjoy it? It's extremely frustrating because the service here is terrific and the food is as well (usually - the lemon bar dessert was a big disappointment).

The server had been on for 10 hours. While she was very sweet and had good conversation, she dropped half of our $11 appetizer (made up by bringing out two extra pieces) and brought out a drink made wrong. She didn’t even inquire as to how he would like it. Also, the ahi tuna was well done instead of rare and fresh.

The food iscertainly above average and a good value for quality dishes above the normal fare. The brussel sprouts are a perfect appie for 2. My wife's salmon filet was moist and flavorful on top of well seasoned quinoa and my shrimp diablo was sicey but good as well. A little stingy on the shrimp but what was there was good. I was certainly satisfied. The beignets were filled with chantilli cream and served with a carmel type dipping sauce that will make it hard not to order next time. The place is pretty noisy and nothing close to private or intimate. People yell to carry on a conversation but the place seems to always be busy. We'll be back when we're in a wild mood..

One of my son's and his girlfriend's favorite places. Took him there for his 30th Birthday. I noted his birthday in the online reservation, but no one acknowledged it at the restaurant until I brought it up. They comped a dessert but was hoping they would proactively initiate a birthday wish for him. Great food and wine as always, however.
