We shared a meal with friends and experienced just a little bit of France. The salad was fine, the bread delicious--I could have eaten the entire loaf, and the entrees very good. All of the staff we met were lovely people including chef Louis himself. I believe we may well return despite a fairly... read more

I don't know how good the regular menu is, but we are surely going to go back and try it based on the food we received eating the Sunday Brunch. We usually go out for lunch after church on Sunday and if possible we like to eat "local". I saw them listed on trip advisor and my family decided to... More

My family and I ate at Louis le Français shortly after it opened and thought it was a bit expensive. We really wanted to like this place, though, so we gave it a couple more tries. There was a street festival in front of the restaurant once, and they were selling roast beef sandwiches for $7. There were some delicious... More

I ordered crepes and got something that a totally inexperienced cook might prepare and call crepes. Not crepes, not a tortilla, not a pancake, nothing I would want to eat. Burnt to boot. My companion had a salad which had lettuce which might have been out of a bag which had been left open in the fridge for a week.... More

We enjoyed our Valentine's eve dinner a lot. Service was very friendly. Escargot was wonderful. Old school, with the shell holder, nice. Hubby had French onion soup. Good but not to our taste. Had a sour note likely from lemon or vinegar that didn't wow us. Lobster and crab bake was AMAZING. Like a pot pie but without the crust.... More

We went for our Valentine's Dinner the week before Valentine's Day because my boyfriend was going to be out of town. The restaurant is quaint and small, which I liked. It was a bit chilly where we sat and we weren't too close to the door. I would recommend a table on the opposite side of the door and request... More

Although the restaurant is small, the dining experience is big. You wouldn't expect this french cuisine on a quiet southern Indiana street, but there it is, ready for anyone to come in and enjoy it's full menu. We weren't quite ready for such a long dinner, but it was worth it and the musician added to the quaint ambiance. Nice... More

We arrived at 6:55 for our 7:00 reservation and were told we were going to sit at a table right in the entryway. It was 8 degrees outside! We asked for another table and were told they were full and if we wanted to wait we could. Our gut was telling us to walk out the door, we should have.... More

We arrived at 6:15, seated at 6:18, and ordered at 6:50. When a waiter, not the waitress who took our order and brought us our drinks, returns to your table at 8:00 with the following question "You look like you've been waiting a while, can you remind of what you ordered"....that's not a good sign. Pork tenderloin was fantastic, but... More

My family arrived at 5:20 (15 minutes before opening, but the door was open, and the lights on.) We were really excited to close out our homeschool unit learning about France with a meal from Louis. We stood at the hostess station for a good 2 minutes watching what I think was the floor manager talk on the phone taking... More
