Great martinis in the bar, attentive friendly service, perfectly grilled steak and shrimp (special of the day) and a seafood hot pot sadly lacking in substance. Described on the menu as one of the chefs signature dishes I was expecting great things. Thai inspired red curry was flavorful however the quantity of seafood and salmon was shameful considering the dish... More

Thank you for taking the time to review us on trip advisor. And our apologies for the hot pot not living up to its usual standards. I actually spoke with the server regarding this dish, and was informed that there was definitely a portioning issue in your situation. And although this dish is by far the most expensive dish on...

Went on a little drink/appy date with a friend before a movie. Had the half litre of a recommended red wine (which went went down WAY too easy) as well as fish tacos. Plate arrangement was nice and flavours were on point. Service was good too - attentive and never leaving u rubber necking around the room wondering where the... More

Can't comment on their other menu items as we only ordered pizza from there for the first time recently. It will be the last time too. Literally tasteless pizza, VERY thin on toppings, no seasonings it seemed...almost inedible. We ordered from there as our fav pizza place (Leo's) was closing early that day and thought we'd give Louie's a try.... More

Dear GJ L, Sorry to hear that your experience with our pizza was not to your taste. We make every effort to prepare our pizza in as close to the Neapolitan fashion as possible. That is to say, thin crust without overdoing the amount of toppings, as the crust will not hold up if the weight of the toppings is... More

My wife and I had dinner at Louie's last night. I had the peppercorn NY and my wife had ginger beef pasta. Both meals were perfect. We loved the service, atmosphere, and the dinners rank at the top of the best we've ever had. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone coming to Nelson. Great job!!!

Comfortable place with 3 seating choices, dining room, lounge or patio. Wok fried squid to start was excellent. Nice wine selection. My wife and I both had different cuts of steak and wow, they were off the chart! Service was excellent. Was a little pricey but you get what you pay for. Treat yourself.

The lounge is dark comfortable environment and the main restaurant dining area is a funky modern decor. My wife and I had a Caesar salad which was excellent... More

Four of us ate here...it was ok, but nothing special. My ginger beef pasta dish at $21.50 was pedestrian, and the meat was tough. The others in our group of 4 were satisfied. The server was loud and a bit full of himself...added nothing to our experience, and a bit annoying. The room...the back part is a bit of a... More
