This is a terrible establishment. I went to this location last Friday night. The bartender who looked like Tara Reid served me a terrible long island. I took one sip of the drink and the drink tasted like juice. She stated there are alcohol pour limits (I understand but the drink had no hint of alcohol!). I asked for a remake of the drink and she refused. I then urged that I didn't want the drink and was not paying for a drink that could be remade with less juice. The customer service at this place is terrible. Being a person of color I have never experienced anything more degrading then sitting at a bar and not being acknowledged until practically yelling to be served.
On top of the awful experience I called the Bar today to speak with the manager who is just as rude and disrespectful as this establishment expressing my concern about being charged initially 10.92 for a glass of juice and then the price changing to 8.82. He told me to never come to the establishment again.
Never in my life have I felt so disrespected and I am not the first person to feel this way. Numerous people have told me this place is very discriminative toward black people but I finally saw it for myself. I hope this place gets shut down!
Sonny was my Server the last two times I've gone to Bar Louie's and he's very attentive to his customer but, not over bearing. The ambiance was outstanding! The only negative experience was that when exiting I believe it's ridiculous that you'd have to go all the way around to the other side to enter into the lobby where you pay for parking. My overall experience was great!
A miserable experience. We went for my sisters bday. Had a reservation, but they didn't have our table ready until an hour after our reservation. We were served with dirty water glasses (had pieces of lemon left over on the rim of the glass), and our waitress served my sisters 21st bday martini in a short, plastic glass that was half full.
Part of our group's food came out late but they comp'd the entree and offered a free drink to the people who did not get their food timely which was nice. We had a large group but it was so loud that I could only converse with those sitting right next to me. Cool atmosphere but for a large group, may not be ideal if you actually want to talk to the people you came with.
My first time at this restaurant. The atmosphere and seating were great, but the waitress was awful. She asked us if we wanted our bill 3 times and looked at her watch each time. I finally gave her an eta for our departure. The food was ok, but the calamari and spinach dip were cold.
The food was great! The drinks were awesome. $5 martinis for happy hour are a steal and the options were extensive. The hostess and server were subpar. It took a loooong time to get a drink from the bar and it wasn't that busy. I would go again, but without expectations of great service.
We gathered to bid farewell to a co-worker. The wait staff was excellent recommending drinks and favorites from the happy hour specials. He was very attentive as additional co-workers came in and he would soon arrive to get their drink and food orders. The food came out quickly and was very good. I plan to go back.
the food was good the waiter did wanna take the time to divide our give up like he should been done and I called a head of time telling them I was runing late when I got there they was giving the run a around bout my resatvation other than that the food and drinks was good
I read some of the negative reviews and was a little nervous about going there. Took a chance and was pleasantly surprised. The food and service were great. Has a good variety of food offerings. A great location in the Uptown area and the abiance outside is terrific. If your looking for a fun place to go give Louie's a chance.
My wife and I enjoyed the scene, the service, and the food in Uptown Mpls. We are out of town a fair distance - we found the area easily navigable. End route, our server called us just to tell us our table was ready, 10 min. ahead of schedule! We sat in a U-booth off of the bar area. Pros: excellent service, great food, and signature drink variety - all very wonderful. Negatives: Being unfamiliar with Bar Louie, we followed the suggestion to dress snappy/ business casual. Being Valentine's Day, many were dressed, but a few were not. I'd update the profile. We were otherwise happy with the atmosphere and the space. Thanks, Bar Louie!
Took my boyfriend's brother and his friends here for his birthday and it was the perfect spot. Our waiter was super friendly and offered great options off the menu for drinks and apps. He also checked in with us as more of our party arrived and then throughout the night to make sure we were well taken care of.
In addition, we stayed well after eating and he continued to fill our waters and occasional check about more drinks or dessert. He was respectful at all times and it was good to know we were well taken care of all night.
I highly recommend this place for a group as long as you make a reservation.
They've got some staple items that are great - especially the burgers and of course the loaded potato tots with gardiniera (trust me). And then there's always some specials. It's a lively scene but we were able to get a table for 9 at 24 hours notice on a Friday night. Good service, great food and reasonably priced.
A high school friend and I met up after not having seen each other in about a year. This was the perfect place for us to meet up and catch up. Our server was amazing, checking in at all the right time. She was patient and kind. I would absolutely recommend Bar Louie!
Bar Louie is a great place to eat, meet with friends or family and enjoy the tasty food and excellent service. The food was a little on the pricy side for what you get although we were in a big group and split the bill so the drinks may be skewing my view of the pricing. Would definitely recommend.
I normally don't leave a review, but in this case I'm making an exception.
We show up and the host doesn't take my name off the OpenTable reservation list which I barely catch in time. Following that, we get seated, and it takes ten minutes for our server to show up. Finally she shows up and takes our drink orders - only to disappear for a full fifteen minutes. During that time I watch her chat it up with another table and flirt with a fellow server before finally making it to the bar for the drink order. The place is not full. Following that she finally brings food, doesn't even check on us until the food is gone and that includes drink and even refilling water. Second two-cent tip I've left in my life. We will not be returning - ever.
We were celebrating my son's 21 birthday. The service was terrible. 15 to 20 minute waits for ordering, long wait for food, long wait for check--even after requests. The waitress was crabby -- no smile. I asked to talk to the manager, our waitress was our manager and she told me "the service was just fine" and she was rude to me. Nothing special to honor my son--desert, drink or anything complementary.
