    Very loud and crowded. Too many tables crowded together. Even with 3 pm reservation weren’t seated until 3:45. Service was very slow. Appetizer came out after meal. The saving grace was the food was delicious.

    I have always enjoyed dining at Louie Bossie. The food is well prepared and very tasty. The Sunday Brunch is great but the best thing about the restaurant is the great service. I have never had a negative experience when eating there. Great attitude from everyone that you meet. They all seem to be having a good time and that spreads to the customer having a great time. Highly recommended

    I've been here before and really like their pizzas and starters - always a hit. Last time around, though, the pastas weren't quite hitting the mark for me or my friends. They felt a bit overcooked, and we tried quite a few (six different kinds, to be exact). Even with a reservation, the place was packed, and we ended up waiting for almost an hour to get seated. Once we did, it felt super cramped and a bit like we were all squeezed in together. With the restaurant being so busy, the service ended up being a bit slow and seemed rushed. It wasn't the best time I've had there, but also not the worst. I think a few tweaks here and there, especially with the pasta and handling busy times, could really make a difference. Looking forward to seeing how it goes next time!

    We had the best experience at Louie Bossi! We went to brunch for my bachelorette trip and the service was absolutely amazing. Our server was super attentive and surprised us with a dessert to say congratulations. He even wrote us a list of things to do to visit in Fort Lauderdale! He made the experience amazing. The food was also amazing and great portion sizes. The outdoor patio was such a cool ambiance and just an overall really great experience. Would definitely recommend!

    We’ve dined many times at Louis Bossi. This experience was our worst - server was very inattentive - only showed up to take the order and provide the check. We asked for items that she didn’t provide, we had to flag down other servers who ended up fulfilling our requests. The food was sub-par for all four of us - 2 of them were the Carbonara which had always been excellent in the past.

    Had a 7:30 reservation for 4. When I checked in the host offered me a very small table with couches which I refused. We are a group of 4 older adults and could not dine at a table like this comfortably. The host then tells me I will have to wait on a table since I refused this table. Once we did get seated, it took forever to see our waiter. It took forever for our food. We told the waiter we were celebrating a birthday and the waiter asked what flavor ice cream. I told him vanilla. He never brought out the birthday dessert. Very disappointed with the service from the time we walked into the restaurant.

    Very dissapointed in our lunch here. While the chaucuterie board was delicious, the pasta dishes we all ordered were tasteless and bland. The waiter brought me the wrong drink. I then had to ask 3 times for a side of cranberry juice to fix the drink. My glass of rose was forgotten as well. Had to ask a second time.

    Food was fair. Clearly its a tourist trap. Our waiter was horrible. Horrible service, never checked on us, completely dismissive, thankfully the food saved the experience but at best it was mediocre. We witnessed other tables get way better service and became frustrated when our waiter disappeared for almost 30 min from our area and had waiters from other tables tend to us. Music became obnoxious at one and felt like we were dining inside a club rather than a restaurant. Definitely would not go back and would advise others not to go.

    We scheduled a reservation days before. Got there and waited over an hour passed our reservation time. Were told multiple times they were getting our table ready for us in the back patio. And then when they finally went to seat us, they put us inside. Then when we mentioned it they said it’s either this or you wait another 30 minutes. Thankfully the food and server inside were good

    The hostesses were amazing! My waiter was very professional. They were so calm and collected with all the craziness around them! The place was full yet the staff was super friendly…and the food…yummmm. I really got my carbs for my next day 1/2 marathon and happily celebrated mine and my daughter’s birthdays. The ambiance was fun and the back patio beautiful.

    Louie Bossi has v e r y s l o w “s e r v I c e.” Louie Bossi is a fun, buzzy, large, upscale designed Italian restaurant. The servers are welcoming and friendly. But, sadly, the dining experience declines and is off point for a well designed restaurant at this price point. We arrived at 7:50pm for an 8:00pm reservation. After standing in line to check in we were seated at 8:10pm. There were two servers working together and one greeted us around 8:15. He told us the daily specials and we ordered a bottle of wine. The wine, bread and accompanying olive oil was delivered around 8:30pm. Our starters arrived at 8:50pm and were told the restaurant was now out of the veal chop special that we had ordered. We asked for pepper for our salad and was told right away and they would bring the menu back to reorder. Server number two came buy our table about five minutes later and we asked for pepper and a menu. We asked for pepper two more times and another server showed up with the pepper mill. Another server came to take our order shortly after 9:00pm and asked if our server had told us about the specials for the evening. We said yes, we ordered the veal chop and were told they are sold out. He apologized and suggested other items on the menu. We ordered Bronzino and a pasta dish. Our salad plates and cutlery sat on the table and were removed when our entrees arrived around 9:35pm. I asked for some additional parmesan cheese for the pasta. After five minutes we both started on our entrees thinking we didn’t want to go through asking multiple times for parmesan cheese. The entrees were both good. Never once did either server fill our wine or water glasses. Overall, we were surprised by the lack of service at this price point. Please know parking is problematic. Walk or take a ride share as there is no valet parking and parking is scarce.
