“solid trendy atmosphere & food...wish service was better”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2012

returned after several yrs (back in mke on business); menu identical and as tasty as prior...except filet special not entirely avail (seafood portion sold out) and spendy for serving---but tasty; service was under par compared to my prior experiences...wait staff clueless about menu and bar offerings...cooks seemed a bit lax (esp as open kitchen); will return only b/c of memories yrs ago and food/atmosphere good; hope they overhall the service...

“NYE perfect starter”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2012

We decided on Louise's for our NYE dinner because it has always been a decent place with a good variety even for picky eaters. We had a group of 14, and they seated us right in front, which I couldn't figure out if I liked. The table was very long, and the last person not only got jostled by the server because it was so tight, but was kind of "hanging" off the end. But that being said, the service was good, they had a great cranberry blini special cocktail and the food was excellent. It was exactly what I expected. I ordered my favorite fettuccini with no chicken and add asparagus. So good! It put us in the mood for what was to be a great NYE.

“Great Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 9, 2011

Stopped here for a bite to eat on two occasions. Food was good and the range was to be expected from every Italian restaurant. The staff were excellent, I was travelling from Australia and had many non food related questions about the city which the staff were more than happy to help me with. Overall had a good time visiting Milwaukee which was made better by the staff from Louises.... Thanks
