We dine out a lot. All over the world. I never write reviews. However, Carlos was out of this world good at his job I told my girlfriend I wanted to write one when we got home. Added so much to the already great Bossi experience. Thank you!

Specifically requested back patio for out of town guest birthday. Arrived at 6:00 reservation time on a Thurs. and told my request would not be available for at least 40 more minutes. Service was lacking.
Food was not up to normal standards here on dishes I always order. Not sure I need to return and continue to patronize a restaurant who has lost their edge. Very disappointed. Had to constantly ask for drinks never delivered. Asked for club sofa twice for a Spill and still never got it.

Much too noisy a restaurant to enjoy - could not hear people at our table talking.
Good for under 40’s crowd who like to woop it up

me my wife and my six-year-old daughter intentionally did not eat so that we would be hungry when we got there. We got there and after about 30 minutes of watching the manager and the servers walked past us, no one asked us if we had been helped, we finally decided to call a server who claimed that that wasn't her section but she would help us even though she was service in the other tables close by. the manager literally came to the table beside us didn't acknowledge us didn't ask us if we had been helped but had the audacity to come and ask her after we had our meal how great it was excetera excetera so I wasn't happy and I won't be going back. I stayed because it was by Valentine's Day treat for my wife I'm child and we were starving, but other than that I would not have stayed.

Very beautiful restaurant. Maybe we were just very unlucky and got a terrible server, but he made the experience at the restaurant terrible with subpar service and lack of attentiveness. The drinks were great and food was okay. Worth giving another chance though.

Great food, great service, but it is so loud in there, I couldn't hear the person sitting next to me and they have you seated very close in some areas, you're practically bumping arms with strangers.

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.

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.
