About Louie's Wine Dive - Omaha
Louie’s is obsessed with really, really good grapes, creative gourmet comfort food, and a funky, fun atmosphere to share them. We search all over the world to find you great wines. Many wines come from our relationships with smaller undiscovered vineyards, which offer a great value to our guests.
Wine is supposed to be Fun! We pour BIG and will open any bottle for our guests to try by the glass. When you taste a new varietal at Louie’s, let us know how it changed your concept of what wine is supposed to be.
Our gourmet comfort food is made fresh, using eco-friendly and local ingredients. As for the fun, we instigate it, but count on you to see it to fruition (literally through the fruit!). Louie’s is your place, so please enjoy it as much as we do, grab one of our unique bottles when you leave!

Louie's Wine Dive - Omaha Ratings and Reviews
I really wanted to make my Mother's Day extra special for my mother. We got there, made polite small talk banter with the host and the guy basically ignored us, did not look up from his iPad table seater thingie at the host desk once. Somehow sat us without acknowledging us. My mom smiled at him, excited for her day- and he literally just kept looking down. He distinctly was unpleasant and immediately made me regret choosing the establishment. The waitress we had hustled, but we sat by the kitchen and watched our food sit there not coming out to us for no exaggeration 10 minutes. Our waitress even walked over to where our food sat, asked the kitchen staff, and then returned with nothing. We got two orders of eggs benedict, and a french toast. So we essentially ordered bread and eggs. And they managed to come to our table brick hard and cold. And we where at the restaurant for nearly two hours. We ordered two bloody marys to the table and the waitress came to clear them without asking if we wanted another one, my mother had to finish her bite and rush to say "OH I WOULD ACTUALLY LOVE ANOTHER." I think our waitress was a solid waitress, just had a lot going on- and a lot of people in her section- and by no means was her performance the reason I was displeased.Just the overall thing borderline on stressful, and was in no way shape or form what I wanted for my mom. I sure as heck didn't want to spend $80.00 ( without the 18 percent tip I left) for a meal that I had to apologize for. Will never return. As we walked out the same man who sat us without engaging with us, or smiling at us, or looking at us, smiled- a little bit too late. Because I was no longer smiling.
None of the 10 of us will be going back there! Terrible experience! For a place that touts itself as a wine place, there should have been more selections at a variety of prices! All the wine was very expensive and there were only two Chardonnays by the glass on the menu! Both of those were very expensive at $11 and $17! I finally decided to break down and buy a $40 bottle of Chardonnay knowing that I could take the rest of it home with me that evening. The waiter never came back to take my order. I had to flag down somebody else that works there and I ended up ordering just a beer – at a wine place. Then we had to flag somebody else down 20 minutes later to let them know that we would like to order some appetizers and then dinner. (The food was only mediocre, to boot.) Not sure what was going on with our server but he did not seem happy to be there. After dinner we asked him to take our group's picture, and he started taking shots of us while we were still lining up and talking and fixing our hair. He wasn't even laughing about it as if he was kidding around with us. Our experience there was very unfortunate because we had all been looking forward to trying it out!
I am gluten free and find it hard to find great food choices in Omaha. My husband and I met a gluten free friend for drinks and the gluten free fish and chips which is spectacular. We also had the gluten free calamari and it was equally good. The wine, of course, is always great!
Made an online reservation and showed up on time only to find out that the place was closed. No sign on the door or notification as to why. So I called the number only to find out that the place was closed due to the super bowl Sunday football game. It would have been nice to know that before I drove all the way out there. Maybe a message on the website or something. There wasn't even a sign on the door. Very disappointed.
The man at the door chastised us for showing up for our table of 8 reservation early, but we had no other choice since we were with kids. On the way to the bar we passed a table of 8 that was ready to go, and were eventually seated at that same table 50 minutes later after being empty that whole time. Could have been a shortage in wait staff since we got very slow service and food delivery the rest of the night. Could have also been received more politely at the door. Would not go back in a busy night.
We went here on New Years Eve and didn't consider that there would be a set menu. Because of that I can't really comment on the food. What we had was good, but what a regular meal would I can't comment on. The wine selection was good, although some desert wines would have been a nice addition. The waitress did a great job.
This was our first time at Louie's. We found the menu limited and a bit over priced for what we received. And we have poor service from our waitress. She spilled water all of my husband's laminated menu and said "yes I did that". Never apologized not came back to wipe it up so he wouldn't end up with a lap full of water when he picked up the menu to look at it. We won't be back. Too many other good places in Omaha to waste our money on poor service.
Our food was mediocre and willing to correct food that was cold. The vegetarian food was the best. This is my third visit and the food did not impress me. Fish and chips were French fries, no chips! Tuna was on a huge bed of lettuce. Not very imaginative salad. The apple dessert was very good.
The food was decent, but the service was far from great. It took ten minutes before we were asked about drinks, another ten before the appetizer was mentioned and another twenty before it arrived. We had been there fourty minutes before the waiter took our order, and I had to ask him if we could order. The rest of the experience was so, so because I think he could tell I was agitated. He tried to be better attentive at that point which was good.
The service was great but the guy at the door did give me a bit of a hard time for being about 10 minutes late for our reservation even though the place was clearly very slow. Maybe he was joking, I don't know. The food was delicious too. The thing is it was just so very expensive for what it was. I ordered a bowl of pasta. It cost $15 with the very few pieces of chicken. I thought I'd end up taking home leftovers but there wasn't even that much. The only person in our group who got what looked like a lot of food ordered the fish and chips. As for the wine the least expensive glass on the menu was $9. That put my tab at about $30 (including 20% tip) for one drink and a plate of pasta that didn't come with a salad. I won't be going back. If my husband had been there he'd have been eating cereal before bed...which is unacceptable after eating a $25 meal, IMO. But if you're looking for a quiet place with good wine and food but don't care how much you're going to pay you might like Louie's. There's even outside seating for the rare day it's temperate enough in Nebraska for that so the place does have its charms. Oh and if you're not a wine drinker they have other (equally expensive) drinks...a few beers and cocktails.
