We have been to Louie's Wine Dive many times and have always had a great time. The staff goes above and beyond to give us wine recommendations or answer any question we have. As usual, we had a wonderful evening.

This was an excellent experience. For a year or so, we have been passing over Louie's Wine Dive because we had poor service a few times. I was pleasantly surprised this time and we will definitely be back.

Never have had a bad meal at Louie's! My friends had to send a drink and meal back because it wasn't up their standards, but they even still left please! The service was fantastic and very patient with us and the size of our party. They threw in free dessert for the birthday girl as well! Highly recommend the 4 pork gnocchi! Will be returning to Louie's over and over and over...

I should have asked about a New Year's eve menu, I looked on the website and we chose Louie's because of the menu. When we arrived, it was a limited menu for New Year's eve, completely normal holiday activity but I wish I knew. The waitress was nice but kept asking for our meal order before we had ordered our drinks. We asked for an appetizer after our drinks were served and she was amenable but seemed surprised (maybe new). The evening menu was black with white/silver writing in little font. The menu was good looking but a little tough to read....can you tell my age? It is a snug little neighborhood place and would be nice to try again on a non-holiday evening.

Louie's has made substantial improvements in their cuisine over the last couple years. We had a guacomole dip and tuna sashimi. The guac was excellent and fresh, and the sashimi was a delight. Nice hit of citrus with the pineapple that went well the with beautifully seared rare tuna. Yum. My wife had a house hamburger w/o the bun that was cooked perfectly medium and well spiced. My brother in law and I both had the Fish and chips. Nice big chunks of cod perfectly cooked, light breading, with an aioli that was a fab relief from traditional tartar, yet, with hints of the classic. Fries were excellent. Service was outstanding. Kitchen was outstanding. Yay!

Louie's is our go to date night place. They have a seasonal selection of menu items and a great wine list. They do get busy sometimes. This last time they were busy, and did forget our appetizer, which was a bummer. However, they did try to make it right and brought it out free of charge. Overall, I'm a big fan and would definitely recommend it!

We had a 7:30 reservation, there were two other parties so a bit awkward. Where was everybody?? Super slow service, our server went on a quick break and then we had to wait for our drinks because the bartender stepped outside...not sure we’ll be back, please improve because this used to be a favorite!

New Tapas menu is a bust, alot of the items that were on the last menu were what Louie's was known for. I don't think this restaurant has ever been known for tapas.

Louie’s just revamped its menu about a month or two ago. It is now more of a tapas type restaurant where they suggest you get 2-3 things in the menu due to the shrinking of portions. It seemed quite expensive to me for tapas with food ranging between $11-$19. There was almost no one in the restaurant on a Saturday night which I found odd. In the past, Louie’s used to be a fun place to go and filled with energy. Our waiter was amazing and was giving all the information in each dish so we knew exactly what to expect and didn’t have any surprises :)

It was hotter than HELL in Louie's on Saturday night. The server advised that the AC was malfunctioning and repair services were not scheduled until Monday, 6/18. Really? The management of Louie's couldn't be bothered to raise holy hell until they secured AC repair before FATHER'S DAY WEEKEND???!!! With heat indices in the triple digits??? Fail.

They gutted their dinner menu and it’s awful. Good luck eating here now if you’re a vegetarian. And super pricey now- $10-15 per small plate, and they recommend at least 2-3 plates per person. Won’t be going back here for dinner any time soon, which is unfortunate - used to be one of my favorites.

We used to be huge fans of Louie’s, but we’re pretty disappointed with their new menu. They’re now calling themselves a “tapas” restaurant, which normally I’d be thrilled about, but not the case here. Their menu has many of the same items, only now they’re now more expensive and a fraction of the size. They suggest “2 or 3 plates per person,” but most plates are $11-$19. After looking over the new menu on Saturday, our group of 6 young adults decided to get one drink and then walk next door for dinner. Hopefully this new menu goes over well with others as I’d love to see this place thrive, but we likely won’t be back anytime soon.

We found Louie's perfect for celebrating Mother's Day. Were loved the inventive dishes and the sensible portion sizes- We are not in to super-sizing. Our wine and beer were excellent.
Service was very friendly and attentive. We appreciated our server's attention to detail and help in explaining the interesting unusual menu.
