Food came out exactly as ordered. Everything was very tasty. Our waiter was excellent, an older Lebanese gentleman, he was professional, funny and on point. Outside seemed nicer then inside strictly because of the noise level. Felt like a concert. Could barely hear people talk. Too much noise.

I did a reservation, when we arrived one super nice girl was cleaning a table outside for us but the other girls in the reception area told us that it was not possible, without even consult with te previous girl and we sat in and indoor table. Thank god our server was amazing !! Pasta was super good but somehow the pizza was not was supposed to be!! I love the cocktails!! I love the place anyway but I don’t think the travel for me is worth it anytime soon!!

Hands down the best brunch in south Florida. Best food and best servers around. But you need to make a reservations - wait times are normally an hour. But worth the wait.

The food was great. Sitting in the back on a cool sunny day was excellent. Got there at 11:00 am for Brunch, so not too crowded. However, after waiting for 15 minutes with menus in hand and nothing to drink I had to flag down a waiter to see if anyone was going to wait on us. Waiters were standing around chatting and ignoring what was going on. People arriving after us were being served already. Finally got a waitress to wait on us, (she said there was confusion on who should have waited on us) but by that time the place was busy, and service was downhill after that. Excellent food and ambiance, but the service needs supervision, and to be aware if their patrons are being waited on properly.

Did not acknowledge a birthday celebration. The drinks took forever. The appetizers were delivered and had to ask another waiter to retrieve them from the bar because they were sitting there forever. One of the entree’s were wrong. Terrible waitress period. Sorry for this review but you need to know this wasn’t our first time there so just a complete disappointment.

We got to the restaurant early and had a couple drinks at the bar and they were able to get us in early. Food was very good and our waiter was excellent.

You can't go wrong with Louie's. Met a colleague in from out of town for dinner on a Monday night. Our reservation was at 8, but it was very crowded. Demi, the hostess was very friendly and told us it would be a few minutes as tables were just finishing. We went to the bar, which was very busy. Luckily found two stools and ordered drinks. Informed the hostess that we'd sit at the bar, which was no problem. Service at the bar was excellent - bartender was friendly even though she was slammed. Grilled calamari was awesome and fresh, as was the Eggplant special.

Awful over-salted food. Noisy, cramped and dirty. The whole place is pretending to be something it’s not. Ignore the local crowd waiting to get in and skip it. Has to be something better in Fort Lauderdale.

I feel that the food is very good but when they give you a piece of salmon with nothing no vegetable no potato nothing just a plate of salmon which cost $28 that's it just salmon then if you order lamb chops they give you a nice amount of lamb chops but nothing not a vegetable not some potatoes again nothing you're paying $30 and that's all you get I feel that for the money you should get a little something I'm not saying has to be big portion of potato a vegetable but something just not a plate of lamb chops and adjust a piece of salmon with nothing to me I just rather go to the bar have a drink have pizza and that's it

1.) Sunday Night Reservation was for 7:30, arrived on time and had to wait for a text for seating. Seated 8pm.
2.) Could not find Valet. Parking and Valet in the back of restaurant. Valet took so long I parked the car myself. Seemed understaffed. I saved 6 dollars. Parked a few spaces from the door and spent $4 vs $10 and no tip was needed.
3.) Food wait was 40 mins for 4 platters. Food was fresh, not hot but more like room temperature.
4.) Server was attentive but had some periods where follow up was 20-30 mins.
5.) You don’t have to wear business attire.
6.) Placed that this was a Birthday celebration on the reservation but it was overlooked and not mentioned during our visit.

Our waiter was exceptional. That was the best part of being at this restaurant. He made expert recommendations and paired our food together with perfection! We had a ribeye and the truffle mushroom pasta together along with the duck prosciutto special app. He told us the origin of the sourdough bread yeast starter and the bread was worth the trip!! I wish I could remember his name but he recently traveled to Tennessee to get 2 dogs - maybe that narrows him down. The food and service were spectacular but the seating was really tight - and it was very loud - so a fun happening place! Will be back next time in town!
