The restaurant itself has a great atmosphere. Our waiter left a lot to be desired. Can’t remember his name because he never said it, his introduction to us was “ Can’t give you bottomless mimosas because there’s only 15 minutes left in the special” (we never asked for bottomless mimosas). After placing our drink order he snatched the menu from my daughters hand, I pretty much knew it wasn’t going to get any better from there.
My daughters ordered pizza while I ordered a pasta dish. When the food arrived I immediately noticed something didn’t look right to me. I am not one to complain, let alone write a review. The pasta sauce didn’t taste like others I’ve had in the past and it appeared to be ground beef and not prosciutto in the pasta. When I asked the waiter he erupted with “It’s prosciutto, 100%” to which I said taste it if you are so sure. He then proceeded to pull my plate and take it back to the kitchen. He returned a few minutes later with the same exact plate (never had that happen before), except now it had slices of prosciutto on top of the pasta.
I didn’t want to ruin my daughters birthday lunch so I just took one for the team and ate what I could. The flavor was not bad it’s just not what I was expecting least of all what I thought I ordered.
I assume the other servers had to have noticed the quality of “service” we were receiving because of few of them stopped and tried to intervene and returned after the plate was brought back to check on us. Thoughtful but pointless.
Sad to say first and last visit for me.
Great Outdoor Patio Area. That’s Where To Get Seated.
I go all the time and usually have a great time. This time was different. Waiter we got was unfortunately very rude at the end of our stay. We had a great time and he was very nice but had a problem with our tip and had the audacity to embarrass us and ask why we didn’t tip more. I’ve never felt so uncomfortable to be at a restaurant. Won’t be going back for a while, usually have a good time there but he put a bad taste in all of our mouths.
Always a great time. Sat outback in the beautiful courtyard. We ordered the Bronzino which is one of the best I ever had! Very flavorful!!
Jessica, our server, was excellent. Very observant and looked out for all our needs. Thank you!
Came here for My girlfriends and I one year anniversary and we loved it. Great service, great food, and a pretty scenery. Our waiter, Mike, was so nice, he offered to take a picture of us and checked up on us very often. Will most definitely be coming back.
Excellent food and service. The best restaurant experience in Fort Lauderdale
I’ve been to Louie Bossi about 5 times in the last year and every single time I’ve had the most awful service. It’s sad because the food is so great. I probably won’t be returning in the near future just because the food isn’t worth this terrible of service. Tonight at dinner, we did not see our server once after he took our orders for food. Our appetizer was served before we even got our drinks from the bar. My pasta came out cold and it took me 10 minutes to grab someone to heat it back up. By the time my pasta came back out, my friend was done with his food. We also were sitting right next to the kitchen, which was unbearably loud. Expect good food from this restaurant (although slightly overpriced), but never expect good service.
Loved the food, loved the service, loved the vibes, 10/10 would return.
Nice vibe....disappointing, undercooked pizza appetizer....limited menu for the non meat eater amongst us. Table for 4 (a booth) was too small for glasses and plates. Outstanding bread! A mixed bag.
I love the place, food, environment and service.
Never disappoints! Food, atmosphere & service is always impeccable!
Awesome brunch with friends. Tables were at a good distance. Food and drink were spectacular as always, really enjoyed ourselves.
Food was amazing and so was my server! Only thing was it was suuuppeerrrrr packed! Def don’t think the restaurant was at 50% capacity. Unless the guidelines have changed and I’m just unaware. But every table was full. It was super loud, so it would hard to hold a convo with a large group. I wouldn’t suggest to go for a first date if you’re trying to have an intimate conversation. Nonetheless, food is always great here and I’ll be going back, probably for outdoor seating because indoor felt a little crammed for my liking during these times.
Amazing food, reasonably good service.
Yulia was a great server, providing good recommendations and prompt seamless service. The food and ambiance were exceptional and a great way to celebrate a milestone birthday. I always look forward to visiting Louie Bossi’s when I’m in town and as usual it did not disappoint
Amazing, it was our first time at this restaurant and brunch was delicious, we had a pizza and rigatoni and all felt so homemade. Can’t wait to go back! The drinks were also very good!
Great Italian! We had a hard time deciding on our Antipasti our server Jessica asked us to allow her to put something together for us. We chose 3 meats and 2 cheeses and she hooked it up it was delish. Will be added to our list of Faves!
Enjoyable event given the current circumstances
Will definitely go back. Perfect dining experience as always from the food, to the service, to the ambiance.
For some reasons unknown to me the restaurant canceled my reservation even though we were on time.
We had dinner last night at loui bossi. We normally go to the one in boca but we decided to check out the one in Fort Lauderdale. The hostess were very nice and sat us in the beautiful gazebo with lights everywhere. Our server Brad greeted us right away and was super nice! Good experience overall we put our food order in by 10 because the restaurant closes at 11 due to covid. We were going to order another bottle of wine but another server came over to our table at 1037 and we asked if we could get another bottle he said no. He continued with that the bar is actually closed and we cannot order any more drinks that they already did last call. We sat and looked around saw EVERYONE getting drinks brought to their table. We asked a bartender what time they stopped serving drinks and she said “What time is it?” We said 1040 she said yeah we stop serving it at 1040. Our amazing server then came over to our table and we asked about alcohol he was like of course you can order a bottle of Veuve. He gave us espresso and a dessert with the candle! I could not believe other servers were trying to take money from his pocket!! We left by 11 o clock which we respected. Thanks again BRAD!
2nd time this month we went to this restaurant. Food is always good but service is horrible. Waited 25 min for the check and This time the waiter couldn’t do the math on the check and I got a call on the way home I owed more money.
I won’t be back anytime soon just because of the service.
Overall it was nice. Food was good but nothing out of the norm. Service was just okay.. lots of people standing around, when asked one of them a question he said he couldn’t help but would get our sever who never came. I would definitely recommend, but not out of this world like other reviews state.
inside patio dining is awesome
It is the second time I have been there and the food and service is fantastic. I wish i could remember my server’s name. She was amazing!
There is nothing bad to say about this place. The service is wonderful and the food is even better! You cannot go wrong no matter what you order! Start off with a cheese/meet board and order some homemade pasta or a fresh wood fired pizza!! I have been to this location about 10 times now and each time is better than the last. Cant wait for it to cool down in Florida so I can sit in the back and sip on some wine where you really feel like you are in Italia!
We have been to this restaurant in Boca Raton but never in Fort Lauderdale. The service was pretty good and the food was excellent!
Great time. Took a friend here for lunch for her birthday. Our waiter was outstanding. wish I could remember his name to give him kudos for a job well done. Food is always great. Tried the dessert sampler for the first time and Was blown away. Looking forward to my next visit here.
Table limit is difficult. Didn’t bring bread until after the meal despite being asked initially. Good brunch value on drinks. $20 pizza a bit over priced but still tasty. Very loud.
The food is always great at Louis Bossi! Fabulous salads, pizza and homemade pasta! We ate in the back garden and it was perfect.
The food and drinks and Louie bossi never disappoint. Our server was also great so attentive and sweet!! Can’t wait to go back.
Honestly the food just wasn't good. I know its a pandemic but the Ceasar salad was pretty pathetic and the pasta dishes were pretty disappointing as well. The peach appetizer special was pretty good though.
The service was excellent and the food was delicious. It was 1:30 in the afternoon so the nnoise level was perfect.
The food, service and ambiance was wonderful! Such an amazing restaurant! Thank you Jim for your great recommendations on which dishes to order. It was fabulous!
Amazing birthday dinner for my mom!! Jonathan was fantastic
Food and service was great!
