Loukinens' on 4th
Spectacular! Recommend for special occasions
Threw a surprise 30th for a dear friend. Laurie, the GM/owner was superb. She arranged the best table in the house for us. Invited us to arrive early to decorate & get ready. And, she continued to check in on our table throughout the evening. Waitstaff excellent & attentive. Five stars for service. They couldn't have been more accomodating. We lacked for nothing ALL night.
This is a gem in Springfield. Menu is great and the service was attentive.
We had an excellent experience. We would definitely go back and we highly recommend it to our friends. Loved the atmosphere. Food was excellent. Sea scallops were delicious
My wife, daughter and grandson went to Loukinens' for dinner on New Year's Eve. My wife and I had dined there before but it was new for my daughter and grandson. It was a very nice evening for all of us. As always, both the food and service were excellent. We especially appreciated the efforts of the owner to seat us quickly rather than have us wait. This is quickly becoming one of the favorite restaurants in Springfield and we always recommend it to our friends. Keep up the great work.
Really enjoy coming here for special meals. Dinner is always excellent and even lunch is a very lovely affair. You can't go wrong coming here and the owners are lovely people that take a lot of pride in their restaurant.
We area very similar restaurant two nights before and the service, food and overall dinner was great. Tonight was a disappointment. Our waitress didn't tell us about the $5 drink special for the night, everyone around us received a bread basket, not once did our waitress ask us if we wanted one. The food was good but not great. The chef and head waiter stopped by everyone's table but ours. No we weren't dressed as hobos and didn't stink. We were dressy casual as everyone else. This won't be a restaurant we'll be returning. For the price I will go back to vele.
New Years Eve
I’ve dined here many times. It was a first visit for my friend on NYE.
She thoroughly enjoyed and will return.
Delicious food with excellent service. Chef comes to your table to check the quality of your experience.
Exceptional all-around food and service.
I would recommend this restaurant to anyone.
Very good. Food and wine both tasty. Was a bit noisy at times.
We went for the first time on December 21st. It was a far more pleasurable experience than we had at another recently opened restaurant. The staff is excellent. The food is delicious. The wine list is great. We will be back. There was also an incredible gingerbread house as we entered the restaurant.
Food and service was fantastic! Manager and Chef both asked how our food was and were both very nice, professional and friendly. Will be back soon!
Food was prepared with care. All of the flavors really hit the mark.
The watermelon rind unsweetened tea was a very pleasant surprise.
Only negative was that the French Onion soup could have been warmer.
The cheese on top was broiled to perfection, but underneath the soup was only luke warm.
We went for our anniversary and walked away very disappointed. Our entrees (short rib and pork chop) were quite bland. The sides (Mac and cheese and brussel sprouts) were also bland. The Mac and cheese smelled bad and the sprouts were mushy as if they were boiled or frozen ahead of time. We only had a few bites of both sides and couldn’t eat anymore. The bread was quite stiff as if it had been microwaved to heat it up. While they gave us a free dessert due to our disappointment in the short rib, we will not be returning. We had high expectations due to other positive reviews and the nice atmosphere.
Always an excellent dining experience! As busy parents, Louikinen’s on 4th is one of our go-to places for date nights to reconnect. The food is outstanding: calamari is the best in town 👍
We have dined at Loukinens’ a few times before but this latest visit was the best experience yet. The food was outstanding, as was the service. The owners were on top of everything and it showed. Their hands-on presence was what set this visit apart.
Alex is an absolutely excellent server - attentive, engaging and knowledgeable. It was my first time at Loukinen's, but it will definitely not be my last!! The food was also amazing, all the way down to the dessert. Best food in Springfield, IL!
Great food and views.
Went for my wife’s birthday and was very pleased. I had the pan seared grouper which was perfectly cooked and my wife had the homemade ravioli which was superb. Our server, Bill, was great at anticipating our needs, but not hovering. Top notch. The owners came to see us at the table to make sure everything was satisfactory, and were cordial and delightful. Good date night.
Would not change a thing. Service was “first class” and personable. The chef came to our table more than once to make sure everything was desirable. The food was excellent, from the delicately fried cauliflower, the perfectly grilled swordfish to the ice cream trio (including jalapeño infused chocolate) Ohhhh, must also try the lobster bisque!!! This lovely dining experience is Co-owned, the chef is one of the owners and the other owner served our food. The manager came to our table as well to make sure we were please and had everything we needed. Our server, Michael, perfect-ask for him. Our evening was an amazing experience all around. Please don’t change anything.
The food has been exceptional every time we have eaten at Loukinens. We like that the menu changes providing new dishes to try.
You will more than likely to meet the chef/owner during your meal along with the manager. They want to make your experience as great as possible.
We had Alex as our waiter, he was awesome! The food was amazing and cooked to perfection. Would recommend to anyone.
Very Nice, quite setting, the food was fantastic. I blew my diet - but it was worth it.
Unusual items on the menu which makes ordering fun. Food is fantastic and the service is exceptional.
Wow. If in Springfield, this is the place to go. Terrific service and great food. Tried them for the first time today for our anniversary. We had Short Ribs and the Filet...both were awesome. Be sure to get the Cauliflower appetizer.
Best service we've ever had in Springfield. Simply great!
Dinner was excellent. Pork chop was presented well and cooked to perfection. Bread basket was filled with nice variety of breads. The chicken dish was excellent as well. It was a bit noisy in the main dining room but not annoying. Cost was not out of line. We will definitely be back.
Easily the best restaurant in Springfield!
Beautiful place. Excellent service. So, so on the taste buds. Lots of $ for the lack of yum.
Very nice place, very scenic, great food and staff is extremely attentive. Loved that the chef came out to check on customers. Top notch dining in Springfield.
Fantastic food, excellent service, quite lovely inside! Definitely going back.
Another wounderful dinning experience, final meal in the area because of a transfer, going to miss it but good reason to visit often.
We were out of town and wanted a local dining experience. This place is fabulous!! Food is beautifully presented, tasted out of this world, and was very nicely priced. We recommend this place to everyone!!!
First time to Loukinens and won’t be the last. Excellent food and great unrushed service. A must have is the Cauliflower appetizer.
Another creative menu by Chef Loukinen! The food presentation is always beautiful, and the flavor never disappoints. On a Friday evening, downtown, every table in the dining room was filled. We are thrilled to see Springfield embracing this fine dining establishment. The service was excellent, as always! We love Loukinens!
Absolutely fantastic! New favorite place in Springfield...
Cannot say enough about Loukinens’! Service has always been great. Went for our anniversary and brought our 2 year old, the staff were so welcoming and even brought toys over to keep him occupied. Kyle was an excellent waiter!! Everyone from the owners, manager and wait staff are always inviting and courteous! Love Loukinens!
Was a very nice surprise. The food and service were both excellent.
We thoroughly enjoy this restaurant and plan to continue eating there regularly.
The special was a roasted turkey sandwich and soup.
The turkey came cold...I expected it to be at least warm.
The soup lacked flavor in comparison to other restaurants’ French Onion soup
