My family and I frequent Louie because my niece loves the beignets. The last 2 visits have been less than stellar. The first disappointment I let slide--all restaurants have bad days. After the second fiasco, I have to speak up. The ambiance is a given terrible--it's the noisiest restaurant on the planet, but we know that. The service is friendly--yet... More

The scene was probably the most noteworthy aspect of this restaurant. The place is HUGE and the open design definitely adds to a fun environment... though it was so loud that our table of 4 had trouble holding conversations. Definitely a cool space. Loved being able to see the food being prepared. It was hard to decide on the menu,... More

I had lunch and dinner at Bottega Louie, Downtown LA several times. I was always very satisfied. Today was no exception, in this restaurant everything is perfect: the seating, the food and the service. Waiters are great! A little bit noisy, but acceptable. For me the best place downtown LA! Not only for Italian food. My medium rare steak was... More

My friend raved about this place prior to dinner and it certainly lived up to his review. Surprisingly we were seated straight away without a reservation and the service remained excellent throughout our meal. We ordered one large pizza and they offered to do 50/50 for our toppings when we couldn't decide. We also a couple of sides. After the... More

Stayed down the street at the newly remodeled Los Angeles Athletic Club and walked down the block for a light dinner after a Dodger game. Fantastic - big, open, WHITE restaurant, gourmet market, incredible patisserie and café - and the staff is excellent, too. The open kitchen is a show-piece. Food is very good. Good wines. Desserts: WOW. Very pretty... More

After traveling to Italy last year we really missed the pizza. We couldn't find anything that came close until we tried Bottega Louie. I would say it's the closet I've had out side of Italy, but pricey. The desserts are amazing, so many to choose from, and they have a dessert counter so you can just pick some up to... More

Fun place to eat in downtown Los Angeles. Great pastries and pastry display case where you can take things to go. The menu is diverse enough for most palates. Vegans, meat lovers, dieters can all find something to eat on the menu. Portobello fries a must try. Only down side is the acoustics. It can get a little noisy if... More
