    Website menu is out of date. Happy hour and deals on the site were not what we were offered and at the end of the sh with our bill we had to argue our point which was very frustrating. Food however is great.

    Service was sometimes prompt… but staff was nice and accommodating. The spicy level of food was not as spicy as I was expecting. I went for hot but it was just like a tiny hint of spicy. We had 6 pcs (tiny) chicken wings and my friend had the 2 pc chicken with French toast, while I had the El Diablo burger (hot - but was only slightly spicy). The chicken was indeed fried and crispy and really good. But the serving was not good enough for the price you pay.

    Have put one star for food but can’t judge as we decided not to stay and eat after the shocking service (upon arrival we were left standing at the door waiting to be acknowledged for about 15 minutes, before a waitress casually walked past and asked if we were ok?!) and realisation that Louie’s no longer seems to exist in its own right, but is a poor add on to a budget bbq restaurant. Terribly misleading and particularly frustrating when we have travelled across London to get there specially to try some Nashville Hot Chicken. The food we saw on other tables as we left left much to be desired, sorry looking, anaemic chips, watery dipping sauces and sad burgers.

    One of my favourite places to dine in. I really like the chicken and other selections of meat as well. Burgers are especially gorgeous and delicious, especially Peanut Butter and Jello one. However be warned, when they say Hot, they mean it, it’s not your KFC hot or chilli chocolate hot…

    We booked a table for four. Upon arrival to the restaurant, we learnt that it was closed due to an electrical failure. Had we known, we would not have gone. The restaurant should have informed all customers who had booked a table.

    If I could give this place less that 1 I would. The restaurant is really dark so you can barely see the menu and the music is so loud I couldn’t hear my boyfriend talking to me. We were the only ones in there and they sat us at a table right at the front by the bar, all the staff were just standing right next to us basically watching us eat. The food was awful, so so bad I wish we had walked out without paying. The chicken isn’t saucy, it just comes with a rub seasoning on it and the texture is horrible. We got extra hot and it was barely spicy. We both agreed it tasted like kfc chicken but for 3x the price!! Two people came in just as we were about to leave and we wanted to tell them not to bother and go somewhere else. Trust the bad reviews on this place and just go somewhere else

    The whole experience was bizarre. So loud you had to shout at the person at the table with you, the wait staff all hung out by the till the entire time, happy hour was advertised outside but we were told they don't do it anymore, food arrived quickly and was good, though one item was wrong.

    The burgers are amazing and if you can really eat a lot - I suggest to do the double! The wings were perfectly crispy and just great with the gravy! They even asked how well done I would like my beef burger which I appreciated. Only thing was not much to choose from the dessert menu. Especially if you don’t eat nuts or chocolate. But amazing experience overall

    Food was really good but unfortunately due to the service I won’t be going back (maybe just a deliveroo option). Staff were super slow with service and we had to ask for everything (including cutlery, as did all the tables around us) 2/3 times. I don’t think the music being so loud helped our patience, however, I’m aware that the music volume is a personal preference and not a service issue!

    The service was slow but staff were great and friendly. They messed up our order but sorted it out for us. Unfortunately, the fried chicken was extremely greasy! The bread didn’t manage to soak up the excess oils and it ended up dripping from the chicken when eating it. The mild/hot flavours weren’t particularly distinctive or spicy either. There are definitely other places that do better fried chicken. We didn’t try the Red Dog Saloon bbq meats, only the fried chicken and sides, so can’t comment about the meats.

    If I could give it 0 stars I would. I’m not one to make bad reviews but honestly this is the worst service I’ve ever had. Firstly, when we arrived to be seated, multiple people (including the manager) looked at us and completely ignored us. We were standing for 3 minutes before someone finally decided we were worth addressing (keep in mind it wasn’t particularly busy in this establishment). Then, after we were eventually seated, a few minutes later a waitress came and dashed our menus across the table and didn’t even offer us any water. After a few minutes we were finally ready to order, but trying to catch someone’s attention was clearly proving to be a difficult task for them and I eventually had to actually stand up and go to the bar to ask for service. a waitress came over and took our order. Our food took 50 minutes to come. In a quiet restaurant. 35 minutes into our waiting time they bought over food but it was the complete wrong order, the waitress then said she accidentally bought it to the wrong table and our food would be out in 2 minutes. 15 minutes later our food came again, but the chicken was burnt and it was the wrong spice level. 50 minutes total of waiting, no apology and no communication that the food would take so long. You couldn’t pay me to ever eat there ever again. I’d even heard the table next to us complain about how bad the service was. All the staff (except for 1) were completely unhelpful and actually very cold and rude. It was meant to be a birthday meal and it had been completely ruined. My advice, do some team bonding and training exercises to get better at communication and politeness, 2 fundamental parts of working in hospitality. Abysmal service.

    Me and my family went here as a late birthday celebration, I'd gone to Louis before and was blown away with it so I was definitely keen to go again. We'd booked the table for 3pm and at 2:50 we arrived. As we tried to enter the door was locked, and with no signage anywhere we were a little miffed. Eventually, after many phone calls we were told to enter through another restaurant along the street. As we entered we weren't greeted by anyone so we went downstairs to Louis, only to be greeted by a very angry looking chap in an incredibly loud restaurant asking for my ticket. It became apparent that this was a private party so we quickly returned upstairs where we had to search for some staff. After that we had no problem, the food was as fantastic as I remembered and the staff member who we dealt with was perfectly pleasant. But after the initial commotion we found it difficult to settle and could speak about not much else during the meal. I would go back, but would suggest some clarity if the main entrance is out of bounds.

    The food is great as usually, however is NO covid free... was not great to see group of 10 people to a table, staff don’t keep the distance or keeping the mask on. Same way to enter and to leave. Disappointed in this , as many restaurants took covid measures. But not here , not safe!

    One of the best atmospheres and friendliness from staff I have ever experienced. The place had shear personality and great ambiance. Loved watching the staff making cocktails and serving others too. Very easy going and relaxed atmosphere. The virgin mint chocolate chip milkshake was out of this world. Great service, great food and great restaurant. Will be back again very soon. Andreas XX.

    Went on a Saturday night table booked for 8:45 but was seated at 9:45. Food arrive at 10:15. Was not expecting to wait as reserved a table. Seats were becoming available but was still not being offered a table to my disappointment. Otherwise actual service from staff was excellent and food was delicious! If they would sort out their reservations it would be amazing but you’re treated as if you didn’t even bother to make a reservation. And then when you don’t make a reservation you are turned away.

    Can’t say much for ambience or noise as we were the only ones in the restaurant (it was a Sunday) but the food was incredible. Only suggestion is fries are a bit small for the price but plus the main there’s no way your leaving hungry! Also extra hot could be WAAAY hotter - but that’s just a personal preference. Final note - order the BBQ sauce!

    The worst meal I have consumed in the last year by far. Service was pretty much non existant. Waited half an hour for a beer, the chicken wings were raw in the middle and the restaurant smelt like bleach. Not to mention the soap dispenser fell straight off the wall when trying to use it. Other than the above it was great
