We were visiting from Detroit for a concert. The breakfast was delicious and piping hot. The bacon was cooked just right. I like my food hot and it's rare that it comes that way. The bloody mary and momisos were on point as well. We will visit again.

Great place for gluten-free options. Dedicated fryer for fried foods - HUGE feature. Decent wine list with reasonable prices. Great service. Was very surprised that it was so empty, though it was a Thursday night. Centrally located. Parking was somewhat scarce, probably due to a big event at the Vogue Theater next door. Even has outside seating which would be perfect in good weather. Plan to return again soon!

Bartender was throwing a temper tantrum during dinner walking out and causing a scene with manager. Waitress didn’t even introduce herself when she greeted us at the beginning. New menu was staples over sections of old menu Food was sub par and tasteless . I feel this place is starting to be poorly ran and is affecting food and service. A shame because I used to like going to this place

Food was great! I had the crab cake benedict, and others at my table enjoyed their food too.
Service, on the other hand, was terrible. It started with our waitress greeting our table by saying brunch was ending in a few minutes and if we didn't order immediately, we'd have to order dinner. She made us feel super rushed and kind of unwelcome. (This was for Mother's Day, we had reservations for brunch albeit at the end of the scheduled time since that's all that was available.) We quickly ordered drinks and food. The restaurant was emptying out from earlier diners so we recieved our food in a timely manner. After the food came, our server disappeared. She came back about 5 minutes into the meal to check on us, and I asked for a refill on my drink, plus a coffee refill for my father. 20 minutes later, still nothing. I had tried to grab her attention, but she never came back to check on us. I asked the manager for the refills, 10 minutes later still nothing. My husband got up and asked the bartender (who was just standing at the bar, no orders in) for my refill. Still nothing for another 10 minutes. My food was cold, everyone else was finished with their meal. My father still hadn't recieved a single refill of coffee. I finally got another server and he was able to get my drink to me after another 10 minute wait. I realize that they were probably very busy for the better part of the morning with brunch and that we were at the end of the rush, but to wait nearly an hour for a drink refill and coffee and to have the server disappear only to show up with a check in her hand (plus her attitude stunk when she did speak to us) was ridiculous. Super unhappy with our time out at Louie's in Broadripple.

Waited 30 minutes for a table when we had reservation. Then we were told they were switching over from brunch to dinner and our appetizers would take a little longer. Took 45 minutes for guacamole and a very small bowl of calamari. So first food we got was an hour and 15 minutes after our reservation time! Then when I complained the waitress got an attitude and practically ran from the table after she served our mostly cold food. Won’t return!

I’ve been to Louis many time and always had great service! However this time it was absolutely terrible. It wasn’t busy at all when several open tables but were not taking ppl because they were “too busy”. We waited 45 minutes for our food. My mother’s omelette was just egg whites with arugula on top. Service was terrible.

We really enjoyed our experience at Louie's. The food was very good and our server was attentive and pleasant. The Brussel sprouts were yummy and my burger was delicious. The only thing I thought was that they skimped a little on the number of fries. Otherwise, excellent!

Disappointing. The server wanted nothing to do with us, except to get us served and gone. The food portions were small and sad looking. I felt bad for my out of town guest, who received what looked like a plop of chicken and noodles that had been sitting out all day. Ugh.

We enjoyed our evening at LWD. The food was really good. Service was a bit slow to start the evening but improved as we went along. Soy deviled eggs were excellent as well as Emilys salad and the beignets for dessert. Yumm!

My wife was disappointed that two of the featured seasonal menu items were not available and the waiter didn't tell her at the point we ordered but came back with the bad news not once but twice. The manager did speak with us and comped her glass of wine.

First time at this location and Mass Ave is our usual place to frequent. Same good menus and wine selections and servers were very helpful with tastings prior to buying a bottle. The #1 best thing on the Charcuterie board is the bacon jam, #2 best is bacon jam (I want the recipe!) and #3 best is all the other choices. Not many places have their selection with some Smoking Goose choices too. The grilled salmon was perfect with a little crunchiness and nice garnishes. Ripple just not as cozy as downtown, but glad to return to both places.
