    We ordered the Rock Cod. They were both way overcooked and super dry. I asked for extra lemons to at least try to add some flavor and moisture and 10min later I had to walk into the restaurant and request the lemon. The waiter was not attentive at all. I usually don't, but I was quite upset so I shared this feedback with the manager and she comped my meal. I appreciatw what they did but would not eat there again.

    Waitress was ok as long as you asked for every little detail. It was like she had never been a customer so she could not understand what good or great service might be. She needs training badly. The bus person (older gentleman big build, was great! He was bubbly in personality, made us feel good and PROACTIVE... wish he was our waiter! ... food was ok but a bit over hyped. Sad to see I could not get a simple crab cocktail as a appetizer. Also never serve a 10 year old a poorly made Shirley Temple in. Sippy cup the look is the part of the experience... ordered it again in no sippy cup and No Garnishes at all???? No cherry no fruit garnish at all... and you call yourself a 4star? I think not!!!!

    This place sucked. Ordered the Seafood Risotto and Lemon Caper Chicken. Both dishes were subpar. Neither was seasoned appropriately, and the risotto was overflowing with frozen calamari rings. Lemon Caper Chicken was rubbery and dry and covered in an indeterminate white sauce that was neither lemon flavor or caper flavored. Food arrived hot due to sitting under the heat lamp (plates arrived with skim over the sauce due to baking under the lamp). Our kiddo ordered Chicken Strips and Fries, and her meal looked the most delicious. Went here for my birthday, and when trying to leave, was told to wait twice by the waitress who refused to deliver our check twice, because they were “preparing the dessert.” Dessert arrives as two scoops of vanilla ice cream with a single lady finger cookie stuck on as a garnish. This place was totally disappointing, slow and disorganized. I definitely do not recommend and suggest you keep walking if this comes up as an option for you!

    This restaurant has a namesake who is a fictitious character, which turned me off when I read the fake "bio" on the website. It's like he's Ronald McDonald or something. The restaurant is actually very nice. The food is excellent. With reservation we got a sunset table for my sweetie's birthday, which was acknowledged by staff with a gratis dessert. We'd go back next time we're in Monterey.

    We showed up and got seated outside. Got some bread and then nothing. 15 mins later we spoke to the hostess and expected something to change. Another wait and nothing so we left. I even told the hostess we were leaving and she acted completely without any understanding. Went down the street to Lalla Oceanside and had a completely different experience. Will not be returning to Louies

    Not knowing about this place I resorted to Yelp, just like lot's of other people. I made reservations for 4 adults, 2 pre-teens at 3:30 on Monday afternoon. The place is nicely located, not far from the Monterey Bay Aquarium. After being greeted by the hostess at the front desk, we were promptly seated. The establishment is about what you'd expect being on Cannery Row, nice, family friendly, made to service tourists, then pack em in again, and again. We were seated outside, which was a rather small dining area, looked like two tables with about 6 chairs each, and a smaller table for two. Being that it was windy and about 60 degrees, we had the area to ourselves and the sea gulls (which were not a problem, but entertaining). Overhead heating elements helped or we would gone inside for sure. Our server promptly arrived took our order and was very attentive till it was time to leave. I had to search out ANYBODY to get our bill, and again, so they could run our CC. Maybe because as the colder it got outside, the indoor area was filling fast, so we were kind of on our own out in the windy cold. But, hey, our choice!! The food was okay. Not bad, but nothing you'd rave about on Facebook, or make plans to ABSOLUTLEY come back. We got two free clam chowders for "checking in" on Yelp, but you do have to purchase the required entrees to qualify. All I can say is I had the Grilled Mahi Mahi and it was great! The Garlic fries were a little greasy, but ok. My granddaughters had the pasta (spaghetti), and ate just about all of it. We were brought a small plate of bread and butter, but were never offered another round. Too cold to come out and ask? We'll never know... To some it up, After seeing the Aquarium, on my way back to the hotel, yeah, I'd stop in again to try the pasta, or just have a drink. The bar area looked like it ROCKS!! As I'm sitting at home planning my next trip to Monterey and Cannery Row, will I make plans to visit this place.....nah, probably not.
