The food is always top notch. Service has never been a miss. Reminds me of a New Orleans cafe. Everything is great!
Due to COVID-19 I hadn't been to Lou Lou in 14 months. But just like old friends that pick up right where they left off, Lou Lou didn't skip a beat. The staff was friendly, efficient, and worked as a team. The tables were spaced appropriately and had plexiglass dividers. The food was fantastic -- I even tried something I'd never had there - jambalaya - and it was wonderful! My friend had the poblano soup special and cobb salad and raved about both. When asking about the check, the server heard me tell my friend that I was treating because it was her birthday lunch -- a few moments later, when he brought me the bill, he also brought her a complimentary banana pudding -- she had never tried banana pudding before and she LOVED it. Thank you for the outstanding hospitality and for yet another fun meal at Lou Lou food and drink!!
Always quality food, creative specials, and excellent service.
Food was excellent. Service was a little slow considering the number of customers. Overall good experience.
Great Wednesday night! Half priced wine bottles and delish scallop special!
Always can count on Lou Lou’s, neighborhood bar and restaurant! One of the best and our favs!
This was our first visit to Lou Lou Food + Drink. My husband and I were happy that we happened to go on Wednesday and could enjoy the half off bottle of wine special. The food the we had was perfect for our mood. My husband enjoyed the meatball sandwich and I had a fabulous pasta dish with crawfish and Tasso ham. We will be going back again soon to try some other things on the menu that looked intriguing!
This is not my first time here by had to be the worst time. We ordered 2 porterhouse steaks, told it was going to be sliced with demi glaze, mashed potatoes. I order a side of asparagus with the steak. The entree came into a large bowl, mashed potatoes, asparagus cut up in small 2 inches pieces maybe a total of 2 whole stalks, and the porterhouse was cut into nuggets about the size of a peanut MM. There were 12 steak nuggets. I had ordered a caesar salad and my husband and I were going to split the steak because I was not real hungry ate a late lunch. My friend ordered the same steak, it was served same steak nuggets. My husband was still hungry that he ordered the New Orleans bread pudding which was delicious. The mashed potatoes were good he said. We decided that the 2 supposedly porterhouse steaks that were ordered was actually 1 steak cut up between the 2 meals and were charged for 2 porterhouse steaks. We should have sent it back but didn't won't make that mistake again. Waiter was nice but he didn't know alot of questions as he told us that he was just there as a fill in it was his first night . The whole night was very different. First time we have been out to dinner since January because of covid and it wasn't great. Give you an A for Covid social distancing etc.
Cajun dishes are outstanding and pair well with the cocktails on the menu
It was pleasantly crowded. Food is always good. Women’s restroom out of order.
Perfect! Great experience. Food amazing. Service is outstanding. Love it. On our go to list. Never rushed. Prompt and knowledgeable service. Love that food!!
Even though it’s unbearable covid with restrictions and all. They did a great job 👏. Making you feel safe, having great specials, the Mac n cheese was so incredible! Great service, company, and laughs great dinner to bring in the new year! CHEERs 🥂
We had a great dinner, service was fantastic and food was delicious. We will return and recommend it to others as well.
Just love this spot. Food can always be counted on. Staff goes up and and above. Favorite date night and or friend spot. Casual yet food is great!
Delicious food, generous portions, and friendly service. I highly recommend the seasonal salad with mixed greens, apples, pepitas, blue cheese and molasses viniagrette.
This is one of my favorite restaurants, and we visit on special occasions and if we are in the area. I decided not to get my favorite meal - shrimp and grits - and went with the special (filet and risotto). My dinner was very good. My husband had the same, but his was not as tender or cooked to perfection as mine. I'm going to stick with my favorite from now on - the steaks were an expensive foul (risotto was excellent, however). My son declared the LouLou Burger as the best hamburger he has eaten. My daughter ordered the crawfish etouffee, and was pleased. Dessert - we got bread pudding and the pretzel chocolate brownie with marshmallow, both were very good, but not mind blowing. Service was good, but a little slow. I expect that due to reduced capacity and staff. We will be going again.
Always good at Lou Lou’s
They always have great specials
Overall a really good choice. Great selection, tasty food. Worth the extra few miles.
One of our favorite places - the food is always good, service is outstanding and the noise level allows for good conversation.
Consistency in good food & service. A St. Matthews staple.
Great experience overall. The food was amazing and the service was great! Nice atmosphere for groups of friends or families. Love this place - highly recommend!
Service was great. Food was served quickly and hot. Lettuce wraps were delicious. Will be going back soon
Fat Tuesday. Tough to review. Food was good, service was very good under the very busy circumstances.
It isn't easy to find a nice restaurant for lunch in St. Matthews. I think the prices are a bit high at Lou Lou. I ate there on Fat Tuesday and the place was a zoo. However, our waitress was nice. My roasted carrots were sort of scrappy looking and they were cold. The beef on brioche bun was quite good. The waitress did what we asked, which was to serve the sauces and spicy condiments on the side. Why charge so much for drinks when you can get a Coke or coffee at McDonald's for $1?
I had made a reservation through you but it took forever for them to seat us then almost gave our booth to someone else. Seating staff not good. After that, waitress and food was great.
LouLou was great as always! Wedge salads, calzone, and Lou Lou pizza were all fantastic! Super way to start our weekend!
Amazing food. Great selection of variety to please anyone.
Service was great. Will re visit
We tried Lou Lou's for the first time this weekend. We were not disappointed. We ordered Blue Cheese Polenta as an appetizer, which was excellent. I ordered She Crab Soup, and didnt care that much for it. That was just me not being into the crab roe, though, not that the soup was bad to someone who likes that taste. We both got Shrimp and Grits that were beyond amazing!! We ended with a shared bread pudding that was plenty for 2 people. It was the best we've both ever had. We will definitely be back!
Great local eatery! Our sever was wonderful. We absolutely loved the LouLou pizza and really enjoyed the special hummus of the day (honey/golden raisin). Perfect place for a family dinner date, great kid menu options as well.
My wife and I have not been here in quite a while. It used to be one of our favorites but we had several less than good experiences. We decided to give it another chance and we're pleasantly surprised. Service was great. Food was fabulous.
Taylor gave exceptional service! This was my first dining experience there and I’m so glad I chose to go. The food and drink selection were so amazing. Return visits will definitely be within my future plans. Compliments to the Chef that prepared and served an unforgettably delicious meal. Thank you, Lou Lou. I look forward to coming back again!
So it smelled amazing, and it all looked amazing, but the food was just okay for us. My husband order the salmon with the mango jalapeno salsa and there was no jalapenos in the salsa. He said the salmon was excellent though. I ordered the crab cakes. So mine actually fell off the plate on the way out so they brought my salad out so I could eat while my husband was eating his food. The spinach with feta salad was good, just a lot of dressing. Once I got my crab cakes they were not very hot, which I felt they should have been for being freshly made, and actually in the middle they were very very cold. We ordered the Valentine dessert as well. It was beautifully presented. The truffle was excellent! The atmosphere of the whole restaurant though was amazing! I loved that!
We went on valentines day and had a great experience! The service snd food were outstanding and they gave all of the ladies a long stem rose.
Food is delicious but the chicken wings appetizer omg extremely good, I had the salmon and really love it, the meatball sandwich was good as well. Service was on point. I will totally recommend this local restaurant.
Neighborhood gem for those who want consistent quality and good service.
Hubs & son enjoyed a night out! Hubs had jambalaya & loved it. Son had the gumbo & really liked it. Hard to find good Cajun food in this area. Bread pudding for dessert topped it off!! Will return
Highly recommend this place. We will be back!!
The food is always good. Love the meatball sandwich. The service is great too
