My husband and I ate a fantastic dinner here and the owner was attentive and amusing.. at least I found him so. He explained in detail all of the specials, as he held up the small chalkboard displaying the entrees. We settled in at a table intended for four, which allowed us to sit side-by-side, near the door. The free... More

Had reservations for Saturday night. Service was not great but the food was worse. I ordered the Beef Tenderloin Tanune at the waiters suggestion. Cook in a tangine and have had this type of food in many places. This was all very dry. Little rice on bottom. Undercooked broccoli and green beans very dry beef and a couple of carrot... More

I brought my wife to La Lou Bistro on a "date night" and we both really enjoyed the food and the service. We shared a bowl of the Vichyssoise soup. My wife had the Tri-color salad and the Bouillabaisse and I had the Mussels and Sea Food Paella. All of the dishes were excellent. The service was fantastic as well.... More

We talked to the owner earlier in the evening and said to come back, no problem with seating. When we arrived a large party of 20 or more were sitting outside. We really wanted to sit outside after having come from Chicago's polar vortex! The owner himself brought out a table and chairs and seated us in the middle of... More

Just had lunch here because of reviews. We were not disappointed one bit. What a fabulous lunch and quaint place with fresh delicious food. Five in our party and everyone was more than pleased with their selection. Definitely need to return for paella.

Great atmosphere, owners, and food! We went there last night for my birthday dinner. The owners made us feel welcome and comfortable. The meal started with a tapenade that was outstanding, served with flatbread. I was too embarrassed to ask for more, but would have been content to make a meal out of it. Next, for appetizers we ordered the... More

I believe from reading other reviews this tiny family run spot could provide many different experiences. We happened to be there on a very busy night in Leesburg. A car show was happening in the street and a live band in the Tally Ho. We were able to sit outside on a beautiful evening. Inside I think the music from... More

Great decor, excellent food, and outstanding hospitality. Every dish ordered was tried by everyone at the table and all were delicious! Will definitely be a repeat visitor!

I went here with a friend of mine and we were the only two diners; it was around three o clock. We were greeted immediately by a man who I supposed was the chef and he was very nice and conversational. The menu here is well curated, full of variety and great things to eat. It had been a long...
