Waited more than 40mins to be seated, even with a reservation. Frustrating.

Very pleasant surprise. Had never been thinking it was all about wine. They have a wonderful sharing menu that was delicious. Between the 3 of us we had the brussel sprouts, cauliflower, salmon, tacos, steak and bacon dates. The bacon dates were the only let down. They were ok - just dry in need of a sauce. Everything else was excellent and reasonably priced. OUr server was excellent with suggestions and knowledge.

We had a wonderful dinner and I can't wait to come back! I reserved a table for 6 to entertain friends who had come in from out of town. I asked for a quiet location where we could have a conversation over dinner and I was thrilled with the location of our table. Our server was very informative and attentive. All the food was tasty and the portions were perfect. Everything on the menu sounded wonderful so I will definitely be back for more.

This place had a great atmosphere and a quality menu! The waiter knew everything about wine and was able to help us choose things from our taste preferences even though we were not experienced wine connoisseurs. The fact that they serve tapas, small plates, was new to us. The waiter recommended 2-3 plates each, but we found that to be a lot of food. Depending on what you order, 1 plate will probably be enough food for a moderately sized meal. However the food is so good you have to try more than one! We loved our charcuterie board and the “tater tots” -they were not what you’d think!

Terrific local seasonal menu. Love the shareable plates. Great service, excellent knowledge of wine pairings. Dishes are a little expensive given that they are typically a protein with garnish.

Wonderful atmosphere. Excellent service. Only issue was with the steak frites. It comes with truffle fries, which we LOVE but the sauce from the steak saturated them so you missed out on the truffle flavor. Otherwise, we loved everything else.

Same consistently delicious food as the Northside location. Only wish they would have the molten lava chocolate brownie on the regular menu. Always keep the chicken tacos!

For the first time that I can remember; I asked for the manager, not to complain, but to complement his waiters and servers. The food was excellent, but the service was exceptional—a special thanks to Jack!!! He was incredibly attentive and knowledgeable with every aspect about the menu and wines.
We will absolutely return to LouVino because of the quality of food and the quality of service we experienced.

We can’t with our daughters before a show and it was a hit. Friendly and knowledgeable staff and delicious food. I was worried my girls (13 & 11) wouldn’t like it but they gobbled up everything. They were great about making sure we were out on time for our show. We will definitely be back.

This was a return visit to this venue, having also visited the other location in Fishers. The favorites are always there (get the Brussels sprouts salad) and then new items pop on and off. I love all of the flight options for drinks - "Jennifer Lawrence" is a perfect start for some bubbly! I like that the servers take all of your selections and submit them in a way that food is constantly flowing instead of a big wait and then everything at once. Bummed to have missed out on the soft shell crab which was on the menu but apparently at the tail end of the season. Appreciate the chef making the call though that he wasn't serving anything he wasn't pleased with regarding quality. Prime location on Mass Ave and right around the corner from the Murat for plays and shows. Will be back!

Half Price Wine Bottles on Sunday, specific wine only. However, they ran out of the wine.
Menu is fairly small and ran out of scallops. Also didn't have a specific bourbon that was requested.
Seems like they are still trying to figure out inventory. Overall the food was good. For a two people, 2-3 entrees are plenty. Some are clearly larger than others. I would go back again, just with different expectations.

Good atmosphere and good maybe for brunch, a quick bite, and maybe a glass of wine after work but not a good place for a business work dinner. Service wasn’t extremely friendly, food came out “as it was prepared” and not In a normal fashion (Apps 1st, then main course, then dessert, etc.), and portions were extremely small (so had to order 2-3 things off menu at $9-$14 per plate for a dinner).

Upon entering for brunch there was a strong unpleasant odor that some in our group said it was sewage others thought it could be eggs cooking yet we were in the first seating at opening so that would mean items were precooked.
We were seated upstairs and coffee was located downstairs so it took the overburdened server awhile to bring coffee upstairs - who would want coffee in the morning? The server did not seem to know the menu when asked questions and the brunch menu is very limited?!? One person ordered a biscuit which was served with no accompaniment ie no butter or jam. She asked for jam & server brought a blueberry dipping sauce which had no taste whatsoeverAND she was charged an additional dollar for it on top of the $4 single biscuit. All diners were disappointed with the food as it was extremely salty. The scrambled eggs tasted as if a teaspoon of salt was dumped upon them. The scrambled eggs were not throughly warm. The biscuits & sausage gravy consisted of 2 biscuits with a small amount of milk gravy and a 2x2” extremely thin piece of dried out sausage coated in salt. The menu said it was served with a sunny side up egg and when I requested a scrambled egg instead the server said she didn’t know if they could do that. She never got back to us after placing order, but the egg did appear scrambled when served. We had to request refills on coffee too. We had $2 mimosas that were okay.
We were entertaining an out of town guest on her birthday and were embarrassed by our selection of LouVino’s as none of us had any positive remarks.
