My neighbor and I have celebrated our birthdays with a dinner at Lou's Tivoli Gardens for the past two years. This year (in June) I ordered their rib eye steak dinner and it was by far better than I had just two weeks earlier at a very upscale Scottsdale restaurant that specialized in steak dinners. Not only was Lou's steak... More

Tivoli is actually in Surprise, AZ. I'm told its in a new location. On south side of Bell, east of Grand. In town for a wedding so thought we would catch an early dinner before rehearsal. Being Friday night near a Sun City the place was packed. I saw earlier posts of "slow robotic" service but our server was wonderful.... More

Good food, attentive staff and good value. I had baked sole with red potatoes and Cole slaw. It was very good. The clam chowder was thick and yummy. If you are in or near Surprise AZ stop in for a good meal.

Service was slow and robotic but food, as always, was superb. Access is not easy unless you know the area and tricks.

We try different restaurants in the area and we always end up going back to Tivoli Gardens. The prime rib they serve on Sundays is to die for. You need to call for reservations in the winter time. They are extremely busy, especially the holidays.

The back room was hot...new a/c was not working correctly per owner. He couldn't even turn the ceiling fans on high cause he couldn't reach the pull chain.(???) Just my... More

I have not been to Lou's in long time. The last couple of times were a big disappointment. Friends invited us to go this time. What a change. The food was prepared as ordered and was delicious,. The service was outsanding and our party all enjoyed our meal with one exception. That exception was not the fault of the restaurant... More

We stopped for an early lunch. The place was fairly crowded but the server was pleasant and quick. The corned beef sandwiches were very good but a little too much butter on the grilled toasted bread. The decor is not great but the food, service, and price were all good.
