I am always reluctant to write review that rate a restaurant poorly. Even good restaurants can have a bad evening, as can cooks and waiters. But sometimes the experience is so bad that a poor review seems warranted. That is especially so in this case, since I perused TripAdvisor reviews for this restaurant and found most of them to be...

We went for Mother's Day brunch, we had reservations, it was very busy. The food was excellent the atmosphere was delightful. There was a live guitarist playing mellow tunes at a reasonable volume that did not interfere w/ conversation at all. It was a great experience, we will be returning for sure.

While on business in the New Albany area our host had suggested Louis Le Francais for lunch. Walking into the place reminded me of the coziness I found in restaurants in the old town of Nice, France. The food was excellent and the host was excellent. The homemade soups were like home and portions where filling just enough to save... More

My family wanted to try Louis Le Francois for quite some time and we finally made it. We tried a drink that was a special for the week and it was delicious. My salmon with dill sauce was excellent. My husband had the beef bourguignon and thought it was good but a little too rich for his taste. Our daughter... More

Dinner with family at an excellent French restaurant,looking for cassolet,exceeded all expectations.Great food--escargots,mussels,duck,cassolet,beef bourguignon and delightful dessets. Very good wine list and some very tasty holiday drinks. Personable chef,hostess and staff,and warming ambience.Reminded me of dining in Paris. Just across the river,about 5 minutes from downtown Louisville. Can't wait to return.

I'm so impressed with my lunch today. I just got back from a France and maybe had slightly fancier food than at LLF, but not better prepared, and certainly not with more cordial wait staff, and at probably twice the price. Looking out onto New Albany's Market Street doesn't rival the view at Cassis, but it was just outstanding for... More

Just got through eating here for lunch for the first time and I can say that I will be back. The price is awesome and the food matches the price. I strongly recommend the creme brulee for desert. I have eaten it in France and I am not sure that this isn't better!.Service was great,and the hostess was wonderful.Can't wait... More

Drove to New Albany to dine at the little French restaurant my husband had talked about after eating lunch there recently. In the middle of downtown New Albany’s revitalized restaurant district, this restaurant transports you to France as soon as you enter. It definitely has that cozy French country feeling. What made the atmosphere even better the night we were... More

My wife and I enjoyed our dinner. The zucchini soup is a must. The service was good and the guitar music was appropriate and enjoyable.
