Description: The idea to establish Loewy was a spontaneous one: that there is a need in Jakarta for a casual bistro – an everyday place with an interesting but accessible menu, a well-designed but informal décor, and adding to the mix: a buzzing, energetic bar serving the best, stiffest drinks in town.The inspiration came from traditional Parisian bistros by way of New York City. The style of the interior is retro/classic with a modern interpretation. The original Thonet chairs, the leather banquet seats, the subway beveled tiles, the tin and copper ceiling panels, the white brick walls; evoking this “Paris bistro meets New York loft in the 1940’s feel. It is then combined with a modern layout and concept, creating an overall ambience that is uncluttered, clean, understated, and timeless.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013 via mobile

Great bar. Good service, food is ok. But please, change the food menu! Same menu for three years. Enough already!

“Nice atmosphere”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

Very good interior decoration, lots of noisy, big expat crowd, average food, expensive. Nice place for a night out, I don't think you'll remember what you tasted.

“Dresscode”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

Loewy is one of those places that has a true international flair to it. The food has never been any good but the bar makes up for that. Until recently...

Maybe it is a change in management that makes this place no longer as welcoming as before. My wife and I got refused two times because she was wearing a dress with bare shoulders. We've never been refused anywhere else for that matter. After pointing out to the management and security that there was a couple of which the woman was wearing a tanktop and the man boxers and slippers they didn't blink an eye. This second time refusal ended in a row with management and security at the door.

More of these stories start surfacing. A couple having dinner were told during dinner to leave due the same silly argument: bare shoulders. Another couple a similar story and the argument got so heated that the man was punched by security while escorted to the front door.

I can only hope for a similar bar/restaurant to open up soon in that area. Without the silly whimsical tantrums of the management.

“Good place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

Good food, good atmosphere. Good place to hang out with your friends. If you can find a seat, since this place is usually very crowded.

“Loewy, good drinks average food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

My wife and I dined at Loewy on 01/02/2013 and found it to be a nice setting with high end clients but the food doesn't quite match the expectations. If you like a good drink especially a well made cocktail then yes this is the spot for you. If you are planning on enjoying some tasty food then don't bother. The menu is ho hum, the portions below average and the food just doesn't zing or pop. It's not that it isn't edible but it won't make you smile and rave to the person sitting next to you. The atmosphere promises something special but it doesn't deliver that great food that so many people will have led you to believe.
