We arrived without a reservation at about 7pm on a Saturday night and chose to grab a table by the bar instead of waiting 20 minutes for a table in the main dining room. This was my first time at Louisianne's and will probably be my last, which is a shame, since I love Cajun and Creole food, having lived... More

Excellent service. Immediate seating at the bar even though we did not have a reservation. The piano player spun New Orleans style music which was charming. We were very disappointed that the crab puffs contained *gasp* fake crab meat! This might have been acceptable in 1990, but hugely disappointing in 2016. Cosmopolitan was the best I've had in Madison but... More

A step in, or should I say a step down into Louisianne's restraurant harkens back to the 1980's-90's. The ambiance is dark with a low ceiling. Small alcoves with a bar in one corner. The menu is classic New Orleans with little attempt to contemporize with fresh, local ingredients that is more in keeping with cajun cooking today. Madison is... More

I visit the greater Madison area in October of every year for my father's birthday (I'm from Hilton Head Island, South Carolina). A trip to Louisianne's is always in order. I'm always made to feel very welcome by the owners. The food is nothing short of amazing! Being in easy access to Charleston, SC and Savannah, GA, I'm no stranger... More

The food here is truly divine. Seasoned perfectly, great combinations, an utter joy to eat. The live music is lovely. The restaurant itself is beautiful. I can't recommend this place enough. Looking forward to going back soon!

The atmosphere of this place if wonderful. I visit this restaurant weekly as do many others. Tuesday nights are especially nice as the bartender is outstanding as is the music.

This ranks right up there with one of the best restaurant experiences I've ever had! The food- starter combination plate, wine, martini, main- beef tenderloin cordon blu, dessert- dark chocolate crenels brûlée... All just fantastic! The service was really good also- my daughter didn't even alert our waitress that it was my birthday, but she happened to overhear us mention... More

Amazing flavorful food and beautiful unexpected ambiance! Try the mussels and escargot! So good! Enjoyed the hurricanes too and don't skip dessert. Probably some of the best desserts I've ever had, delectable!

Delicious food - variety of dishes - all excellent. Quiet, intimate dining. Nice bar area and if the "usual" guy is there be prepared for some amazing music that is wonderful to listen to, but not so overwhelming as to interfer with conversation. - I do not believe it is handicap accessible as it is down a flight of stairs...
