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.

If you are visiting Nelson BC and looking for a great steak, this is the place for you. The restaurant is separated into two separate parts , a lounge and dining room. 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

Had the NY steak which was perfect and the taste of the steak tasted outstanding. Service friendly and efficient. As well the NYSteak with peppercorn sauce came perfectly cooked. The sauce tasted like it came out of a bag (too much water used) and peppercorns added. I think a plain steak is the better choice and I would go back... More

Dear Ngosi, Thank you for your comments, and we are so glad you enjoyed your steak so much! I am sorry that you didn't enjoy the peppercorn sauce with your steak. I can, however, assure you that it is made in house, and does not "come out of a bag". In fact, we are proud to say that all of... More

Our first stay in Nelson and after viewing the reviews in TripAdvisor we thought we'd give this establishment a try. Absolutely beautiful view and excellent location. We sat on the patio and tried some of the local beer. The pepperoni pizza was excellent. We both had desserts and enjoyed them. The only and our biggest concern was the lady that... More

Dear easytrvir, Thank you for your comments. And we are so glad you enjoyed your meal with us. With reference to the small dog on the patio… You are exactly right, it shouldn't have happened. My understanding is that the guest was told by the server at the beginning of the night that the dog was not permitted, and the... More
