Louie's Wine Dive - Des Moines
Good brunch options and GF friendly. Place was relatively empty and they let us linger for 3 hours!
Great service, but food lacked flavor and was priced high for small portions. Will not go back.
LOVED trying this place on mother's day! Great specials, absolutely DELICIOUS food, and they gave all of the mothers a single rose! Great service, loved the decor, will definitely go back.
I love the atmosphere and vibe of Louie's Wine Dive, but this particular time (as well as the previous time), the service has been slower. I realize it was Mother's Day so for this most recent time I'll excuse some confusion that occurred with food orders.
Delicious food. Great Atmosphere. Great service. I love the wine selections!
Always a cozy place to go with friends and unwind after a hectic week.
We got all small plates because the more great Louie’s food I get to try the happier I am.
The bacon jam on the charcuterie was unsurpassed and memorable. Just the right amount of jam to fool me into thinking it was a fruit.
Louie's is our favorite place to go after a movie or some other event. The wait staff is friendly and many know us, so we are greeted warmly. The food is always good and the Happy Hour specials are a bargain.
Another great meal at Louie’s! The food was phenomenal (the crab cake eggs Benedict is a must for brunch) and the service was better! Our waitress was friendly and helpful, she was a good sport about taking a group photo for us as well. Overall an absolute delight.
Amazing food and amazing staff. Very friendly and helpful. My wife has a gluten allergy and they take great care of her and even made an item not on the menu to accommodate her. One of our favorite places to eat.
This was for Easter Brunch. Started with mimosas and then my husband had eggs Benedict and I had french toast. Excellent choices
We had a lovely brunch on the patio. Server was wonderful!
Easter brunch was dead. I received a text verification text and a phone message I had to respond to or they’d cancel my reservation. Brunch was average and comparable to a greasy spoon. Beignets were TERRIBLE. Hard powdered sugar stones with no flavor.
We love Louie's! Incredible meal, we had one dish that wasn't up to par, but they comped it and made sure to make it right.
One of my favorite spots to go. Food and wine are fantastic.
We started the night off with the guacamole and Brussels sprouts and a bottle of Chardonnay. We were hungry and the food was delicious! The food arrived quickly and our service was on point. Water glasses were refilled as needed and we received great advice on what to order. Our entrees were also delicious and overall it was a wonderful dinner.
Louie's in Des Moines is our favorite, go-to restaurant when we want moderately priced, good food and the kind of ambiance and service that makes you feel comfortable. We always have good conversations at Louie's and the servers are unusually pleasant and efficient.
Wonderful place for a mom’s night out! Our server, Lyssa, was amazing!
I have always liked Louie’s, for both dinner and brunch, so I thought it’d be a good choice for a birthday brunch for friends. Our waiter was great, but we waited for about 45 minutes for our meals-and the restaurant was nearly empty. When our food arrived, my omelette had fallen apart, and my friend’s eggs were not made as she very specifically requested. The experience was “okay”, but expensive...I’ll choose an alternate spot for next time.
Our waitress took very good care of us, but everything was VERY slow. Don’t know if it was from the kitchen, she had too many tables or they were short staffed in general. The food was very good. The other couple with us don’t step out of their comfort zone often and one has several food sensitivities so I was concerned about the menu options, but they were very happy with their choices.
Had an excellent meal. Great service prompt and caring. Busy place at noon on Sunday
Great food. Good wine.
Louie’s is our new favorite! They have great food and ambiance. We had squeaky cheese, merlot and moscato. My wife had the fish & chips. I had the steak & fries. The prices are a bit high but so is the quality! This is not an every weekend thing for us. Rather, a special occasion destination. We will be back and often!
Loved our entertaining, attentive waitress! Food was excellent. Highly recommend and will continue my patronage.🍷
We love Louie's. Always great food and service. Dining partner had a problem with the meat been overdone and the waitress noticed, told her boss, and they took care of it.
Great neighborhood restaurant with delicious food!
WOW! I’ve been here once for lunch and thought the food was awesome. Now I’ve taken my boss and work associates there for dinner and was blown away by the choices on the menu and the amazing culinary experience! Ive been to many expensive five star restaurants overseas and Louie’s can hold there own. They take a typical meat or fish dish and incorporate various spices, vegetables and sauces to give their dishes a unique flavor. Pair that with a bottle of Argentinian wine and bam, the flavor explodes in your mouth! I’ll be back and with more great friends and business associates.
Love this place!
Absolutely fabulous meal, service and atmosphere. We were a bit rushed on a Sunday morning before catching a flight. We had several servers helping us, the food came out quickly and so yummy! They even asked if we would like the bill before the food to help expedite our dining experience. These people were amazing and the food was beyond compare. Can't wait to be back!!
Food was great. Our server Helen was perfect. We will be back. Thank you for a lovely evening.
Delicious brunch and friendly service!
Wonderful neighborhood joint; kitchen is fairly matched to the promise of the menu; service is adequate. Reliably friendly.
Food & service were very good. We were seated next to the restroom door. It doesn't shut properly, needs a door closer. Sitting next to the open restaurant door became irritating.
Great low key evening 👍
Excellent venue for our first-time guests. Everyone enjoyed themselves thoroughly!
I love the staff, food, and adult beverage options, especially the wine.
Excellent appetizers of deviled eggs and the best brussel sprouts! The steak deburgo was so tender and the sides were unique and delicious. We always enjoy the easy atmosphere and wine selection.
Delightful menu, always something new to try. Every meal a savory dish, looking forward to the next engagement. They leave many reasons to return again
Love this place! Good cocktails, service, and food. The atmosphere is lively. Would have been perfect except the French press coffee is not so good, and one of my food items was missing, but it was nothing big.
Food was even better than I remembered it from our last visit several months ago!
Great experience all around,
I'm avoiding wheat and dairy during January and I was bummed I wouldn't be having the lobster mac n cheese BUT I had a seared tuna salad that was probably the best salad I've ever had in a restaurant. Delicious! Louie's always has good wine specials and a nice casual ambience. A favorite.
