Great stop, very good food, great service

We were looking for a nice place to stop and have a couple drinks and a late lunch. We stumbled upon Louies and were very pleased. The atmosphere in the lounge was awesome and the waitress superior. We ordered a variety (4 of us) of dishes and all were very nicely done, if not a bit pricey, but... read more

Overall good food. The filet was cooked perfect, but I thought the goronzola cheese slice was too thick so was slighly overpowering and salty. The caesar salad was good-nice twist with the polenta croutons. The chocolate torte was amazing-something to split after dinner. Service was OK, we sat in the front area. The staff got very busy with a large... More

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...

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.
