So this restaurant was recommended by our B&B hosts. It was our last night in the Maritimes, so we decided to go for broke. First off - the location is very interesting - in an industrial park - very easy to miss. Kind of cool that you have to go on the elevator to the 2nd floor - and volia - you enter the restaurant. The food was excellent - excellent presentation. The wine list is eclectic. The atmosphere is extremely pretentious - the kind of place that makes you worried about saying something wrong - so maybe 'snooty' is the word. We are used to dining at 'fine dining' restaurants. This one tries so hard to be 'all that' - it needn't be like that. The food and service is exemplary - why the airs? I had the Bison Carpaccio - fantastic! My husband had the oyster app - two kinds of oysters - pricey (6 for $19). They offered a small cup of chowder which was exquisite. I had the surf and turf (lobster and veal) - yummmmmm; my husband had the duck - cooked perfectly. Excellent dessert choices. Total bill = $189, including wine, not including tip. I would recommend if you're looking for a higher-end dining experience.

We went on a Monday night in June 2011. The restaurant decor was nice, and the service was good. However, other than our table, there was only one other party in the private dining room. When it came time to order, we were looking forward to a variety of oysters, but were disappointed to find that there were only 2 different varieties. The staff didn't really give an opinion on the oysters either. We ended up ordering surf and turf, etc.
Overall, the food was good, but don't come here expecting to feast on oysters.

Little Louis is the best restaurant in moncton, for this special evening. It's very romatic with a grand piano being played in the background. And the food. The food well I'm not sure there's words. Just fabulous. It is a bit pricy, but like I said it's the best place for any special occasion.

We enjoyed everything we had and would recommend it. I guess if you want to spend lots of money good place to spend a few hours.
