impressive service and dishes – I just visited Louise's on Larchmont for the first time and I was really impressed - if I lived in the city, I would come here more regularly. The service is great and the Fettechini Alfredo was the best that I've ever had! My only complaint (and this is really more of a suggestion) is that I wish they offered more steak items on the menu - but there are tons of other options so I really can't complain.
I'm a regular and love it – Service was great! Food was great! (as usual) I am a regular customer and I come here as often as I can. My server last time - Christina - was really wonderful - very attentive, personable, and I didn't have to wait much time for anything.
tasty, high quality and not too expensive – I brought my girlfriend here for her birthday this year and we both had a really great time. The food was excellent and our server was personable and very professional. I will definitely be back again sometime soon. A great place for a high quality dinner with good ambiance - not too expensive either (which is always nice).
quality, value, excellent – Our last visit at Louise's was perfect. Rob, our server, was very attentive to the needs of our table and a very personable and charming guy. The food was excellent and brought out from the kitchen at the perfect time intervals - you never felt rushed and you never felt that you were waiting too long for your food. The quality and value of this food they offer here is really wonderful - I'd recommend this place to just about anybody looking for a good dining out experience.
peaceful, friendly, calm – When I came to Louise's on Larchmont, it was getting very late; the restaurant was very quiet. Instead of rushing us out the door, the manager, Kelly, came and talked with us - she was very pleasant and friendly. Our waiter, Paul, was also very friendly and efficient. I would definitely recommend Louise's as a great place where you can come and have a calming meal.
unbelievable food! – Whether its Santa Monica, Larchmont, or Wilshire - we always love going to Louise's. The food here is unbelievable! The staff here is accommodating and helpful, especially Philip. This place just has a warm and friendly feel to it.
Great Watier – Waiter - attentive, quick, congenial personality with a can-do-attitude. I love coming here :) Nice atmosphere.
Great! – Simply put, It tastes great! I want to go back right now and try this other thing I was looking at cause the chicken I ate was sooooo good.
Light and lively McTrattoria satisfies the masses with homemade pizzas and pastas. – In Short
This SoCal mini-chain uses blond-wood tables, cheery primary-colored details and piped-in hits from Sinatra to Armstrong to bring new meaning to the phrase "happy meal." Families and low-key diners are endlessly plied with herb-encrusted focaccia and olive oil. Wood-fired pizzas are topped with California-style ingredients (bean sprouts, Asiago cheese). Other Americanized Italian fare includes lunchtime favorites like finely chopped salads and dinner entrees such as grilled salmon with artichoke relish and a slate of seasonal pasta dishes.
Bad service at lunch, everytime – I keep forgetting that the service at this location is so bad. At less-than-half the size of its sister locations in Los Angeles, one would think the servers could handle their tables.
Today's disappointing lunch break began with my party of three and I sitting patiently drinkless and menu-less for (at least) ten minutes until the manager stepped in. Another ten minutes later he finally returned with a dirty glass for my co-workers water.
Our visibly flustered waitress was unattentive and distracted. We waited 45 minutes for two salads and a panini, all of which were only ok.
It always annoys me to see servers, bussers, and yes, even the manager, chatting it up when the restaurant is really busy. Also, it was obvious we weren't the only table having problems.
I know Louise's is the McDonald's of Italian food but when the $50 check graced the table I found myself wishing I had eaten a Big Mac instead. At least you get what you pay for at the golden arches.
My previous visits have been equally as unsatisfying. If you like the food, go to the Melrose location, its bigger and nicer.
