We went here for my daughter’s birthday and made that clear in our reservation - where you can select birthday. The hostess was so rude to me about someone else’s reservation/table being ready thinking I was trying to get mine. I was waiting and got caught in between her and another staff member. I wasn’t even involved. I was not happy about that.
Got sat at the worst table IMO where wait staff kept passing by and knocking me with some apparatus they wear in their hips. Didn’t I say this was a special occasion?
Asked for manager quietly and relayed our table concerns. He managed to move us to a booth about halfway through our meal- which I appreciated. The place was packed as always.
We like to eat here, but this was not the best experience due to the hostess and the bad table.
Waiter was fine. Food was top notch as always. I will be back but I can assure you, I will be very particular about where I am seated.

Had the best waiter ever!! Shout out to Derek!! We’re from LI, NY and can be a little needed. He really took a lot of time with us and accommodated us anyway he could. Food was amazing. My friend had the pasta with mushrooms which I tasted and it was so flavorful. I had the Monday special which was eggplant also delicious. Our men had the lamb chops which they loved. Everything was perfect and all was more than satisfied.
Also half price martinis on Monday nights was a nice bonus. Even with my favorite vodka Kettle one. And no up charge. That never happens in NY.

Loved my time at Louie Bossi!! Our waiter was so welcoming and made sure we were well accommodated in terms of drinks and food. The food was amazing and the best pasta I have ever tasted. I wish there was a Louie Bossi in New York City because this would be my favorite restaurant. Can't wait to come back!!

Our friends recommended Louie Bossi and set us up with Fred as our server who took the BEST care of us. From our prime outdoor seats to our guided food selections, special crystal glasses for our celebratory honeymoon dinner, we just had the most amazing dinner. The food and wine was delicious and we will return! Thank you Louie Bossi for the greatest experience during our trip to Ft Lauderdale!

The food was amazing as it always is at Louie Bossi. Unfortunately service was not good, which is very unusual as we frequent the restaurant a lot and service typically is great. The food runner brought our food out and our server never came to check on us so we were not offered fresh grated cheese and our wine glass was empty for the entire meal. When we were finished our meal our server finally came by and I told her how disappointed I was. She apologized and said she would bring a glass wine and dessert on the house. That was a nice gesture but I wanted to enjoy my wine with my meal. I guess it was just an off night though, we still love Louie Bossi.

The food was very good except for the cannolis. The filling was bland - no flavor.

Our sever - Nea - was terrible!
She never came by to check on us, left dirty dishes on our table for 15-20 minutes, didn’t bring us any bread and was seen talking to other employees while we needed water, an additional dish for our salad and crushed black pepper.

When my wife asked about the desserts she handed her the menu and said you can read them.

We are regular customers at your restaurant and usually tip very well - 30+%. Not this time.

It was our friends birthday and he had a free entree gift card that he gave to Nea. She charged us for the entree. I had to call and spoke to Jared who was very nice and offered to removed the entree charge.

I don’t like to complain about servers but Nea just didn’t have it together!

Thank you for your time.
Jim

Best dinner we had all trip! The burrata, fig, and prosciutto appetizer was to die for. The ferazzoli was the best pasta dish we've ever had. Highly recommend!

This was not my first time at LB but it was the worst experience ever! Server rushed and absent, we had to order another piece of bread because food took an eternity to arrive. Drinks were mostly syrup and juice. I ordered a simple Cacio e Pepe; it looked like my version of spaghetti when I was in college. On top of that, our waiter never checked on us; he finally decided to do so, and we were almost finishing our meal, nobody brought us cheese or ask us if we wanted to order wine (always) and I complained to him about his unprofessional service and lack of hospitality. We wanted to order dessert, coffee and after drinks but decided to close the check and end our dining experience somewhere else in Las Olas.

Chaotic servers stretched thin and not present. Felt very unimportant. So many other restaurants around that value whether you patronize their establishment. Will not be back.
