Great food, great atmosphere.

We are a family of four and all had a different meal, all were great and all four plates empty by the end. I enjoyed my sangria. The only faults I could pick were the butter (too sweet as in many Californian restaurants) and the chairs were quite uncomfortable although the views were great. The... read more

We had one of the specials of the day which was "grilled artichoke with shrimp" which we thought would be lovely as we were in artichoke country. It ended up being half a slightly singed artichoke, steamed if I had to guess, with some wet tomato sauce and what seemed liked canned mushrooms and rather pathetic shrimp. This was probably...

There are a lot of risky options available on Cannery Row, a place can be good one year, and terrible the next time through. That is not the Case with Louie Linguini's (and for that matter their sister restaurant Cioppino's on Fishermans Warft) They have a formula that works. A nice location, comparably reasonable prices, good and efficient service, a... More

Our family stop by tomorrow and be aquarium and we needed some place to eat. We looked at multiple different restaurants and most had good menus but we decided to stop and eat at Louie's. The food was good, the service was good and it fit all our family needs.

Very busy. Only visit if you like salt - lots of it - all over your food! Service was OK but we were ignored for ages when waiting for the bill sadly. I would try somewhere else next time due to over salting!

We were walking down Cannery Row just trying to get into a restaurant and all the wait times were an hour or more. We came upon a placard for this 2nd story restaurant and there was no waiting. We were seated at a view table and our waiter was prompt, knowledgeable and friendly. We had our grandson with us and... More

I'll give the view 5-stars since we ate outside and had a lovely view of the beach and sailboats. The drinks and food were mediocre and overpriced for what we got. Neither of us finished our mixed drinks. They just weren't wonderful. We tried the overly-breaded artichokes with chipotle ranch appetizer. I had the linguini and clams. Not great. I... More

The restaurant is located on beautiful Cannery Row. It was so busy that we sat inside. The server was super nice and had some good recommendations... none of which were fish/seafood! I had the tacos and my husband had a chicken dish, which were both good. However, the children's meals were gross... especially the pizza.

Restaurant is on Cannery Row next to the water and it's located upstairs. We sat outside and there's a nice view. We got fish and chips and pizza both were really good. Menu has a nice variety especially for families. Prices are average for the area about $15 a person.
