    My reservation was for 6:30.. when my meal concluded at about 7:20. Our waitress asked us to politely leave for the next guests to come in. I was unaware we were on a time limit, although we were seated well after the guests that arrived before us.

    Very up & coming place, but the food is over priced and underwhelming. Couldn't even eat the dessert (too hard to cut through). If you like chicken skin try the River Chips. Other than that I wouldn't bother. 23% upcharge for staff. Not voluntary. Had a great server (Abby). Won't return.

    The food was good with a few exceptions. The mussels were too small for November although the sauce on them was excellent as well as the crusty bread that was served with them. The rock fish was slightly over cooked. The mixed vegetables served with them was excellent. The pork belly was excellent as was the very inventive chocolate dessert.

    When I booked on open table, I listed that it was a special occasion (my husband’s birthday). I was disappointed that we did not get a quieter 2 top and we’re instead seated at a long family style table. It did not feel very intimate. Our server was great but we definitely would have ordered a 3rd round of drinks if he’d checked in sooner. The most disappointing was that our check was dropped without any mention of ordering dessert. I felt defeated and we ended up finishing the night elsewhere. Overall, the food was incredible, service was good, and we will likely try again someday but not for a celebration.

    Dinner on Sunday. Reservations needed. We were seated on time. Quick service with drinks. A small delay on appetizers and entrees. More of a delay with desserts. Starters were fried chicken skins, and the braised cabbage. Chicken skins disappointed. Not crispy. Even somewhat tough. Sauce was great. Braised cabbage was very good. One entree was grilled pork belly with field peas.The other was the "special" seafood stew. Both were very good. One thing that seems like a nit pick . We had to ask and wait for other utensils to enjoy our meal. One to get meat out of crab claws(not cracked). The other was to enjoy the field peas served in a bowl. You need a spoon. The bread pudding was excellent. The poached pear with pound cake, pecan praline and a pear carmel with toasted palmier bits was also very good, although the pound cake was too dense and somewhat dry. Boderline tough. Could have omitted the pound cake and added more palmier bits. Our server was spot on with the hint to create the perfect bite, taking some of everything together. Great! Just rather difficult to do with only a spoon. Had to ask for a knife. I know . Nit pick. Otherwise...good friendly service and good food. Would go again.

    Leah & LouiseResponded on November 9, 2022Hey there Jim! First, thank you for coming out and dining with us. I appreciate all of your helpful notes on tableware and desserts--we are a small restaurant and I am more than happy to incorporate your notes to ensure we have better service in the future.

    The food was good. The wait time on the drinks was concerning. The waiter stated the first drink would be on him yet he charged us for the drink. We waited unnecessarily long for both drinks.

    Food was very subpar for the price… Fish did not taste fresh and was very meaty. The chicken skin appetizer was hard as a rock and not crispy or savory. That being said, the drinks were great!

    I dined solo tonight and from moment I walked in, I felt welcomed. My waitress, Colleen, had me sitting on the edge of my chair with her description of the menu and her admiration for the chef. Oh and did she deliver with her recommendations! My cocktail was superb. Leah’s cabbage and the cornmeal brioche bread were incredible. I used the bread to “sop up” the cabbage sauce. To be honest, I considered requesting a spoon! I chose the special for the night which was an Amberjack served atop an almond milk corn succotash. Truly, it was one of the best meals - and experiences I’ve ever had!

    Leah & LouiseResponded on November 10, 2022We are so glad that one of your best meals could be had with us here at Leah & Louise. Sitting with Colleen is definitely a treat--she is extremely detailed and passionate. It sounds like you tasted enough dishes to know how we do things here! We hope to see you back soon! -Cherisse Hayes Front of House Manager

    had dinner last night on our 15th anniversary and happened to sit beside a couple who were having their 35th anniversary. Everything we had was just incredible. First time there. Thankfully I read a review of the place in the New York Times a few weeks ago or I probably would never even heard about it. I have not even been to camp north in before. Pretty cool spot. Grab the beer at free range Bruins bar room next-door after dinner and sat by the fireplace across the street enjoying the sunset. What a chill and wonderful evening. Our server Asia was great. And the hostess accommodate us exactly the table. We asked for it to top over by the window. Just a great night.

    Leah & LouiseResponded on November 10, 2022Michael, Thank you for choosing to spend such a special day here with us at Leah & Louise. I'm glad you found us and was able to have a great night in Asia's section. We can't wait to see y'all again! -Cherisse Hayes Front of House Manager

    The food was AMAZING! The service was terrible…7:00 reservation, drinks took more than 30 minutes (for 2 cocktails, two soft drinks, one beer and one wine). The one bartender kept a running conversation with the patrons eating at the bar and produced a drink about every 5 minutes or so. Starters arrived before drinks, 20 minute wait between finishing apps and ordering mains with MIA waiter. We abandoned hope on refills and just ordered a full bottle of wine so we could at least have something in our glasses. Couldn’t face dessert after having been sitting for 2+ hours just to get our entrees. Such a shame given how amazing the food was. Lots of staff but no one seemed to be in charge.

Outside seating on a chilly, rainy night with no heaters and poor protection from dripping awnings. Parking confusing. Would recommend with lots of caution.
