The food was very good, however the service was very slow. The Restaurant was not real busy and it took almost 30 minutes for someone to come by for a drink order and another 30 before someone came by for the dinner order. We seemed...More

They make an outstanding penne alla vodka. Portions are large and the service is excellent. The parking is very difficult. A night I believe they have valet parking. Try to sit in the dining room as the bar area can get a bit loud. The...More

You will most likely have to use the valet for parking. The interior is very nice, bright and clean. Service is very good, and food is very, very good, but can sometimes be on the salty side. Bar is lively (noisy), if you like that.

Over several years, I have eaten at Louie's a number of times with inconsistency being a theme. Some visits are great in both food and service. Others are average and some are downright "I am never going back there". We no longer live in Greenwich...More
