Very big and busy restaurant, but even so the food is very good and comes out at a normal pace.
Make reservations because its packed every night.
Bar scene is also great afterwards.

Really good food and service. Pretty loud for a Sunday night dinner-- there was a DJ, which we thought was odd because it was Mother's Day. While the music was good and fun (and fine for us, 2 early 30s for dinner) it might make conversation hard if you're with older people.

Service was not as good as it normally is. We ordered a Cesar Salad and looked like it came from bagged salad. We ordered everything at the same time and asked to be spaced between courses and instead they brought everything almost at the same time. We felt rushed. We have dined at Louie’s many time before and this the first time we have been disappointed. I hope this will be the last.

As usual the food and service were just amazing. We started our meal with the Calamari which was tender and flavorful. I had the Rigatoni Bolonasse. It was one of the best I ever had. My wife had the Ravioli which she just loved.

Hostesses were very accommodating. Our server was inattentive and unpleasant. He literally looked at our empty cups of coffee and never returned to refill them. We had to ask him twice for coffee. Had no personality and we always had to hunt him down. Plus there were no working bathrooms which we were never told about. We had a guest with terminal cancer who was instructed by our server to go across the street to a different establishment. We asked him to send a manager our way, who never came. I doubt our server told management. Food and ambiance were phenomenal. Service is usually on point except this occasion, unfortunately since we were celebrating a birthday.

I have been to their Boca location at least three (although not for dinner) and always had a good time. Las Olas was extremely busy and loud. Fortunately they took our 830 reservation (approx 845) and sat us in one of the booths next to the sidewalk which was significantly quieter (although still loud) than the rest of the restaurant. We could watch the people walking by or the very active scene at the restaurant. At about 1030 the music got louder and seemed to be trying to take on a slightly different vibe.

Our server Juan was excellent. He was responsive, chatty, friendly and checked in with us periodically.

For food; we ordered their special soup ( kale and Veges), 2 orders of meatballs and a margarita pizza. All of it was great! We moved to pastas and that’s where it got a little disappointing. The Linguine Vongole has absolutely no clam flavor. Tasted like buttered noodles with a handful of clams on the side, the risotto fruiti di mare while having a better flavor and a good amount of seafood was unfortunately over salted and my daughter picked the winner of the night-pasta with mixed mushrooms. The pasta was all cooked well-no mushy pasta here. They redeemed themselves a bit at desert. We ordered the canolli and the cookie plate and both were surprising and very good.

Overall a fun night out. Some food is better than others and the crowd was very busy, active and full of energy. Had great service! However, I think I will return back to Boca because I don’t remember that location getting quite as loud.
