My wife and I visited the restaurant during our long weekend getaway and decided to come here and we were not disappointed one bit. Food was outstanding and the portions are hearty. Service was impeccable. When we come back we’re definitely coming back.

2nd time coming here on a quick weekend trip to Fort Lauderdale. We love this place. Great food, great service, great prices and the bottomless brunch drink deal is extremely reasonable. Typically you would think that bottomless service is eh but service here is so good. Our glasses were never empty let alone half empty!

Great service! A bit slow for those who are used to being rushed out but it gave me and my son plenty of time to talk and enjoy each other's company. The food was delicious, especially the pepperoni pizza - and who can beat $14 unlimited mimosas? Can't wait to return!

I was pretty disappointed with my experience here.. We came for my boyfriend’s birthday dinner. The check was pricy for only subpar food. He got the filet and tortellini special which was a very small portion. I asked for my salad undressed and it came smothered in salad dressing. Also the dirty martini had far too much vermouth, enough that it was all I could taste. I came a few years ago and remember it being awesome, hence why I chose to come for this special occasion. Probably won’t be back.

The food & vine selection is great, service is very good but the noise level is unbearable! We already could not carry on a normal conversation and noticed they raised the volume of the speakers!!! It took away from the food experience.

I Love Loui Bossi! The food is excellent. Try the Rigatoni. Their pizzas are delish. Fish is very good too. The ambiance is always a happening place. The back garden is beautiful with a nice vibe. They have a full bar with great drinks.

Excellent service, amazing food, vibrant atmosphere.... Louie Bossi's made my husband's birthday dinner a wonderful and memorable experience! Our server, who was from the East coast was superb! He took the time to talk with us and he made entree recommendations for each of us based on the conversation at the table and our appetizer orders. We were super impressed with his intuitiveness. We will definitely be dining here again the next time we are in the Fort Lauderdale area.

Food was excellent. Homemade pasta and pizza that reminded me of Italy. The server was very well versed on all food and was able to make many suggestions to us as it was our first time visiting this restaurant. The only snafu was that some of the food came out altogether versus in courses. Both the manager and the server did offer to recook some of our food and bring it out later but I didnt want to waste it..instead the manager gave us a complimentary sampler platter which was totally off the hook! We would absolutely go back ..so many good things to try. Reservations are a must. We were there on a Tuesday night and it was PACKED!

One of my favorite restaurants I've ever been to. I think this is our 10th time eating there. It's always a treat when we're in Fort Lauderdale and I get to go to LB. Sitting out back in the courtyard is a magical experience. Sometimes it gets too loud inside but ever since we discovered the courtyard seating area, we make sure to request that even if it means a longer wait for a table.

We made reservations, but the hostess did not give us the best available table.

She talked back and used an annoyed tone after we asked for a better table.

It was a 6:00 reservation. The section we were seated in had plenty of good empty tables.

We did not appreciate being assigned to the worst table in that section.

Our waitress was outstanding, but she gave us the bill for another party. We paid it and left before noticing the error.

The manager, Eric, sorted thing out for us after we called to note the error. So, all ended well.

I was very excited to come here after enjoying the Louie Bossi in Boca. Our appetizer, salad, and wine were delicious. Even with how busy they were, everything came pretty quickly. Then we waited quite some time for our entrees. When they came, they were completely cold; both the pizza and chicken. It seems the food runners were late to send them to our table. Our waitress was very apologetic and took them back to reheat. We were in a hurry to leave for a show and unfortunately, when they came back, still not very hot at all. We did not have time to wait for them to remake the meals. While I did NOT complain to receive anything besides a warm meal, I am very surprised the manager did not come over to apologize.

Good restaurant for a casual lunch. The waitress was friendly. We asked for a salad with some fish as the salad's protein. We ended up getting a full salad and a separate order of fish. We ended up paying three times what a normal salad with fish would cost. It felt like a rip off.

Always a great time at Louie Bossi! I never miss a visit when I am in town! The seasonal Burrata, fig and prosciutto appetizer was excellent and plenty to share with our guests. I had the lamb chops which were small, but there were enough of them that I took some home. Cooked and seasoned beautifully!
