I see most of the reviews for this place are very good. My wife and I visited and were not nearly as impressed. Service was professional and efficient. The communal tables are a fun way of interacting with others. The menu is quite limited and dinner prices are in the mid to high $20s. The food was very plain in... More

Nice dark rustic interior and the great vibe coming from the bar. The thing I love about Basque restaurants is that they really know their lamb and Louis' is no different; their lamb chops are perfectly grilled and delicious. Great food and Atmosphere.

My wife and adult daughter visited in late October. First, if you are looking for a quiet intimate dinner this is not the place. If you're looking for great food and experience it's a must visit in Reno. Seating is communal. We were a party of three. Tables seat 10 or so. Another party of 3 came in and were... More

In Reno at the Silver Legacy for a service club convention, several of us got together, walked a few blocks for dinner at this basque restaurant. Nevada has many basque restaurants and I have been to those in Elko and Winnemucca. The Reno one is a step above, perhaps because it is in a bigger city. This Reno place offers... More

Great place for family celebrations! The food is served family style, just like at home, so its very comfy. It is noisy enough so you don't feel awkward if your crew gets noisy or one of your kids cries, but not so loud that is is not enjoyable. Also, there's a drink called Picon Punch that will put hair on... More

What a great place to meet people. You sit at a table with at least 6 strangers, you order your main course and sides. Everyone shares the sides, you enjoy the meal as the conversation builds. The free wine with dinner guarantees good interesting conversation. If you do not like a loud, joyful atmosphere you should go somewhere else. This... More

The food was ok, but the hustle and bustle and the whole experience is a must. The lamb was fantastic, but the sides were just so so. The portions are generous and the place hops! Very very fun!

Louis' is a fun place to enjoy dinner with friends. Our group of 5 found it to be a great friendly atmosphere. Had dined there many times before, but it was fun to share it with someone who hadn't been there before. Love the casual, family dinning experience. Bar area can be noisy, but it adds to the character of... More

We enjoyed the 7 course meal and company a few blocks from the casino much more than the casino restaurant and it was much less expensive - win- win!
