Loulay Ratings and Reviews

Always love Loulay! Our request to Seat us when we arrived 30 minutes early was cheerfully met. Food as always was creative, and very flavorful. The menu changes all the time, so we never tire of exploring. Service was great and it wasn't too noisy that night.

This was the perfect place for a rainy evening dinner after a full day of meetings. The mussels were divine, as was the arugula salad. My colleague had the trout and he said it was the best he has had in years. Will definitely go back and leave room for dessert.

Spectacular lunch as always, in a casually elegant setting perfectly suited to catching up with friends. The service was as attentive as usual, and the cassoulet main dish was a delight. But special kudos for the s'mores-inspired dessert!

I have been to Loulay now several times. Each time it has been fantastic. Yesterday a friend and I went for lunch and we both had the short rib entree. It was outstanding. When I had taken about 5 bites, I kicked myself because I would have wanted to take a picture of my meal before I took the first bite: it was such a beautiful plate! Lusciously silky mashed potatoes with the short rib on top covered with a rich brown gravy along with a few carrots, mushrooms, pearl onions and some unknown vegetable that was deep fried and served as strips on top of the whole meal -- they were delicious, possibly deep fried turnip? I would order this one again in a heartbeat. Absolutely fabulous. The service was impeccable as usual.

As always, we had an excellent dinner at Loulay. The amuse bouchée was delightful and inventive. The sommelier made a recommendation that delighted us - and it was a wine we would never have ordered without his good description. Food was delightful and dessert just the right size. We return as often as possible.

Brunch before matinee theater. Wait staff was incredible. Bartender was very welcoming and friendly. Got my "grande" bloody mary. Asked a wine question and got a little taste, which was not what i was hinting at.
Overall, a very pleasant experience.

We came in late, at 9:30pm on a Saturday night. The place had some occupied tables but most looked as they are done and about to leave. Food was very good, onion soup was amazing and the flat iron steak was very well cooked. Service was attentive and everyone was very nice and welcoming. By the end of our meal we were the last ones in the restaurant , which was a bit disappointment but we did arrive at a late hour. We will be back, but for earlier dinner next time.

Fantastic service! The trout was incredible. It was probably the best I've had with it's great preparation removing the bones, but keeping it whole and crisping the skin. Hands down, the French onion soup was the best I've ever consumed. It was not too salty, great amount of cheese, and very shareable with a date.

My girlfriends and I needed a really light quick meal before a show, and Loulay worked out fine, although the menu of small plates / appetizers is somewhat limited. They wanted to take us to an upstairs table (no elevator) but one member of our group was somewhat disabled and unable to climb the stairs. The host seemed a bit snippy when he said we should have made a specific request for a downstairs table - but with this being my first visit, I didn't know there was an upstairs (with no elevator), AND when I booked the reservation via OpenTable there was no option to request a downstairs table.

The food was great . I had a very tasty hamburger, and the variety on the menu seemed very good, though perhaps a little light on vegetarian options. The service was attentive but unobstrusive and the restaurant seemed small enough and well staffed enough that I could always see a member of our wait staff and easily get their attention. It was quiet enough to permit easy conversation at a table for 6. And it was warm but not overly so.

Had the NW Salmon and it was delicious! The owner/chef in the hat was very nice to greet us at our table and thank us for coming. My date and I had theater tickets so we could not stay as long as we wanted to but the atmosphere is so cozy and charming that it is hard to leave. Love the design of the restaurant

Overpriced , mediocre well located restaurant. The bright light of this meal fiasco was the wait person was excellent.This place is only sucessful for location and that is what you are payiong for in our estimation.

This is an annual treat for us at Christmas. Its downtown and festive. On this occassion we dined with friends who had never eaten at Loulay. We came with a sensational selection of wines not usually found on a restaurants list. Food was good to outstanding. The cote de bœuf was exceptional, a real standout. Service was attentive and sommelier gracious with our wines. It was a celebtation of many things made better by our treatment at the restsurant.

We went before the theater and had a fantastic meal, the service was excellent, and we just made reservations again to bring several friends. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to any of my foodie friends!

Lovely place for annual holiday lunch sat us at special table 70 which is private yet overlooks the beautiful decor - mirror balls and the grand mirror. Excellent friendly service and waiter took our picture. Love this place

Excellent flavors--mostly. We shared a few small plates instead of one main, and enjoyed the experience. Highlights were the Muscovy duck and the seared foie gras, both of which are best enjoyed when combining all the elements on the plate into a single bite. The crab beignets were disappointing and a bit bland. The smoked faro salad was a delightful beginning: the smokiness of the grain combined very well with the peppery arugula and radishes.

It was lovely and a nice change from the typical "Steak House" business thank you meal. everyone had a great first experience with a few new items on the menu as well. Smells and details are well thought out. No need to speak French but it does make a difference if you can get clarity from the staff on the menu specifics. Will come back!

A birthday treat. Lunch at Loulays for my birthday with a friend. Balcony table allowed for comfortable conversation while we enjoyed delicious beef burguignon and crab risotto. Our server had wonderful suggestions and overheard it was my birthday so the dessert arrived with a candle and a chocolate drizzled "Happy Birthday." A perfect way to turn 68!!

What a great find! The staff went out of their way to make us comfortable and enjoy a casual dinner after attending the 5th Avenue. We couldn't decide between so many yummy dishes that the three of us ended up ordering several items and sharing them between us.

We had the burger which was pretty good, though bun did bit seem.fresh. Service was inattentive at best. Asked for cup of coffee when we sat down, itvwaa filled part way, then not asked about refill until plates cleared almost an hot later. Wasn't very good either. Our waiter was working hard, but never stopped by after our order until the bill. Probably won't go back.

our waiter was the disappointment. overbearing, speaks before listening - which resulted in our drink order being wrong. Surprised as service is usually so impeccable here. we will consider this an anomaly for this visit.
