Lou's Village...thank God you are back! Located in the hip and fun Willow Glen, Lou's interior is so happening. They actually had the ceiling made in such a way it captures the sound and thus you can actually hear the person next to you and...More

We stuck with the traditional Maine lobster (perfect) and stuffed mushroom appetizer, which was simply phenomenal. Service was friendly and efficient. It's nice to have one of our favorite San Jose restaurants back, and located in the buzzing Willow Glen village.

Lou's Village is a welcome addition to Willow Glen. Same great food as former location but with a more limited menu. My favorite is the calamari. Lobster ravioli were disappointing made with wonton skins and bland sauce. Warm brad would have been an additional plus....More

I had high hopes for the new Lou's Village in downtown Willow Glen. The location and atmosphere is definitely worthwhile, and the cocktails unique and delicious! The food, not so exciting. I only had 2 of the meals on the menu, but neither one was...More

Lou's Village has the best service staff who always make you feel special and welcomed. The food is good and generous. But it was so loud, we could barely hear each other. It did not help that people gathered near us to catch up with...More
