Stopped in for a mother’s day drink and bite to eat before a show at the Murat theatre, mixed drinks were light on the serving size for the volume and slow to be served, craft beers were priced at market rate, fish and chips were nice and light, calamari somewhat rubbery, and Emily’s Harvest salad was a nice mix.

All in all 4 out of 5 stars

The manager and server could care less. We were watching the Stanley Cup playoffs and planning to have wine, appetizers and drinks dinner. They, the manager, abruptly changed the channel to the NBA playoffs, which NONE of the other patrons were watching. We asked for just one of those he TV’s to be changed back. We were told by the server that “this is an NBA bar”. We left and had a great dinner at Hedge Row. We go to Louie’s in BR at least 2x’s a month. Will not go back. The server and manager were rude.

What a great atmosphere! Food and drinks were excellent, but the bar service was a little slow. We were there at dinner time and it did get noisy. We will definitely be back !

The food and service was wonderful. They have a variety of gluten free options. I had the carne asada tacos and split the GF apple cobbler with a friend. Everything was delicious. Our table also split a carafe of grapefruit mimosas. The price can’t be beat. They also have dedicated GF cooking space. Will definitely be going back :)

This was our first time at Louis’ and all I can say is WOW! The atmosphere is exactly what we look for. Comfortable. Welcoming. Inviting. It’s laid back but has a feeling of rustic elegance.
The service was outstanding. Our server was very knowledgeable on everything in the menu. My husband and I shared multiple appetizers. The deviled eggs, Brussel sprouts, tuna nachos and Tuna Poke.
All outstanding! Everything had such incredible flavor. They have an impressive wine list and bourbon selection.
The Tuna Poke was like sushi and Mexican food had a baby!
The pecan Brussel sprouts were amazing!
Dessert was fabulous. Get the beignets! WOW!!! Best dessert I have had in a long time. Do yourself a favor and go! Or don’t go. That way it’s not too crowded for us! Lol
Compliments to the Chefs!

This has been my favorite place to eat in Indianapolis, I don't know if I am coming back. I wanted a salad with dinner but didn't want a full portion salad as I had a meal coming and the server was to bothered to at least try and accommodate my request. It had had happened in the past when I have eaten there. I don't know if I am coming back it was a real disappointment

We love the Louis Wine Dive in Broad Ripple but did not have the same experience on Mass Ave. Although the main entree tasted excellent, portion sizes were really small. Ended up going to another restaurant for appetizers after our meal amd we’re not necessarily big eaters.

I made a reservation on Open Table for high top tables. When we got there we needed a low top table so they made a change for us. They were very accommodating and the food and mimosas were great.

All you can eat was just ok. The crabs legs took too long to come out and my last set had cold spots plus I felt it had no season on them. The last set tasted very differently than the other ones I had.

By the name, I was expecting more of a wine bar, including offering flights. However, this was not the case. Wine variety was average so know that going in. The food was very good and most dinners are a la carte. Service was excellent!

Oh man... this was not good. Went in expecting a nice meal and some wine, but our server ruined the evening for us. After deciding on a bottle, when I ordered it, our server glared at me judgementally. I was so stunned I didn't know how to reply. After some awkward silence, I asked if there was a problem, and he proceeded to tell me that what I'd chosen was not a good choice. No tact; no gentle prompting. My first instinct was to say "then why is it on the menu", but I tried to play nice. I insisted that the bottle was fine, and he sighed before taking the rest of our order. One of our party has a dairy allergy, so she asked if she could get one of the dishes without the cheese. He said yes, then came back 5 minutes later and said "actually, no". Which was fine, so she proceeded to order a salad instead. Without the cheese. When her salad came, it had cheese on it. And when she asked to send it back, the server was angry about it. Angry, because she has a food allergy and asked twice about ordering without cheese, only to have to send back the dish. Ridiculous service, and certainly an unpleasant experience. Indianapolis has much better to offer than this place. Look elsewhere.

Amazing service and great music. The swordfish was better than the time I had a similar dish in Italy, and the noise level was pleasant. Allowed for private conversation at our table but was not overbearing. I will definitely be returning and recommend this spot to everyone.
