We love the service staff and the food is excellent, however, the service is way to quick. Appetizers appear less than 5 minutes from ordering, and the entree arrives when you’ve barely finished the appetizer. If you order a bottle of wine, there is no time to relax and enjoy your meal.
What a great place! Having just moved to the area, and just getting married we were looking for a trendy, fun place to have a date night! Louies was suggested and it did not disappoint. Brian (our server) was attentive and laughed with us, the ambiance at the bar was the right combination of classic yet modern industrial! The craft cocktails were full of flavor and not overdone with simple syrup, and the vodka sauce was easily the best I’ve ever had. Overall a great place of a date night drink, meal, or even just to meet up with a friend or two to have apps. We look forward to our next visit.
How fortunate Darien is to have such a charming, excellent, comfortable restaurant in the heart of town. We will make going to Louie’s a regular outing.
Friendly and nice. Very few patrons. Portions were huge.
Good food I would recommend great APPS Good main courses.
My girlfriend and I had dinner last night for the first time at Louie’s. It was outstanding! The general manager Selvin accommodated us on a nice corner table outside . The patio was gorgeous and well done designed! Our server Kristian Bregu was on point ! As soon as we sat he told us about the 50% off on bottles of wine which we couldn’t say no ; he was really friendly and professional!! Thanks for the amazing experience! We loved everything. We will definitely come back!!
Food is consistently delicious.
Staff is welcoming, friendly and efficient
Always a wonderful experience at Louie’s
There are many fine Italian restaurants in Darien and Fairfield county but what sets Louie's apart has to be its most lovely host, Mirela. Her welcoming smile and friendly demeanor make you feel right at home in the most traditional Italian way. I have a feeling she is on her way to becoming a Darien icon if we are lucky enough to keep her.
And yes the food is great as well.
Great service and amazing food!
Amazing service for date - complimentary food and drink snd attentive wait staff
I had such an amazing dinner experience at Louie's last night! It is for sure one of my favorite spots because the food is delicious, the service is impeccable, and the atmosphere is warm and welcoming! Can't wait to come for cocktail hour with my girls!!
Stopped by for a quick lunch with some co-workers. Had my all time favorite chicken parm always delicious. Planning on coming by for dinner with the family. Recommend.
Food was subpar. Lacking flavor and presentation was poor.
Delicious food and wonderful service to help us celebrate my nephew's birthday. We will most definitely be back!
The restaurant got good reviews so we brought friends up unfortunately the food was simply sub par. Three of us had different veal dishes all had very tough and unfavorable dishes. Our 4th got sausage and broccoli rab. It to was tasteless and had such a small amount of crumbled sausage it could have been simply plain pasta. It should be noted the prices were that of a higher range restaurant. Seemed to me who ever was in the kitchen hasn't tasted there dishes in a long long time.
This was our 1st time eating at Louie's and we really enjoyed. Food was delicious and very attentive service. Will definitely be returning soon.
Have eaten here many times, food was not up to expectations based on past visits. maybe getting up to speed after Covid. But will definitely be back again.
Great food exceptional service. Highly recommend
We had the best service ever! Food was great, sat outside and it was absolutely perfect.
A birthday dinner for a grandson
food fantastic our waiter was excellent. Just wish patrons would start to fill the restuarants again
I took my family here for mothers day. The food was delicious but a little on the small side. We started with the fried calamari which were the best I have ever had. My wife had the veal marsala which was very good but a very small portion. My son had the chicken parm dinner which cost us $28 for 1 piece of chicken cutlet with some sauce on it, small side of angel hair pasta. i had the salmon, it included a very small portion of salmon but was excellent. Overall, the food was fresh and tasted very good but the meat portions were less than average.
Great Italian food at a fair price--plenty of options!
Filet mignon was very tough. Poor quality meat. My wife’s scallops were inedible. Kids didn’t like their chicken. Terrible experience overall. Will not be going back again.
The food was particularly tasty last night. We all had a different selection and all were very pleased.
Everything was great. The mango and fig special salad was delicious.
Not a great experience. Service and quality of food were below average.
Who is a favorite spot of ours! Happy to see business coming back again for them!
We ate outside under a comfortable heat lamp. Service was very attentive. Food was very good. Delicious split pea soup
We have eaten at Louie's quite a bit during our time in Darien. Always great service.
Best spot in Darien! We love it and even our daughter starts chanting Louie’s! Louie’s! Louie’s! if we mention going to another place. Great atmosphere, super friendly staff and delicious bites.
Treating so well in our new world!
And the food is always great!
Great food and great service
Its in a nice area with plenty on parking. Food was excellent and plenty of specials that even included desserts. Spacing was perfect. I will be happy to go back in the spring.
Always a wonderful experience! Food and service perfect!
Love everything about Louies!!
Such an enjoyable experience. Our server was so lovely, making my birthday extra special.
In this time of virus Louie’s was very safe in there spacing, cleaning and having staff wear face masks. As always the food, service and wine was a step above.
