    First time here. Wine list is impressive. Brussel sprouts were amazing!!! Steak/Frites were a disappointment. Presentation looked like someone’s mother had sliced all of the meat up into bite sized pieces. I prefer cutting my own steak…thank you. To me, this dish tasted like crockpot pot roast. Meh.

    LouVino was a cute lil brunch gathering for my friends and I. The prices were fair and service was great. Quick food service. Drinks were good too. I had the Hot Dam Croquet Madam and it was delish. Two friends had the steak and eggs and felt the steak portion was not worth the price and were not fans of the Demi glaze. I tasted some and I also was not a fan. Our waiter and host were great! No complaints on drinks. And again, prices were decent so no complaints there!

    We were able to get a same-day reservation for dinner. The food was a good for a casual meal. Charcuterie board was solid. The entrees were somewhat underwhelming. The shrimp and grits was tasty with big prawns, but a little too salty from the combination of seasoning and bacon.

    We made a reservation, not knowing they closed 30 minutes after our arrival time. They were more than gracious in not rushing us or making us feel uncomfortable! We were visiting with a friend we hadn’t seen in decades, so this meant a lot to us!!!

    The Prosecco flight was amazing as was the food. We got the fried green tomatoes, fries, and the burratta caprese salad with grilled salmon. The salad was wonderfully fresh and flavorful and the salmon was grilled impeccably.

    Love, love, love this place. We just discovered it last week and have been more than once;)) I did not have the shrimp and grits, what a mistake! It was divine! Also had the hot brown mac and cheese. Wowza! The wine list is extensive and the cocktails were interesting. Not one negative, I will be back;)

    We went for burger week and everything was amazing! We were seated immediately as we made reservations. The waitress was incredibly accommodating to our twin 4 year olds. She was awesome! The burgers were incredible as were the scallop and pretzel appetizers. I have been to Louvino a handful of times and I am never disappointed!!

    Fantastic food and outstanding cocktails! It's a small menu but everything on that menu was delicious! We had a party of 8 that tried several dishes. Not one person at the table was disappointed. The tater tots were amazing and the halibut was incredible. I could have licked my plate, LOL;) Will I go back....absolutely!

    Okay at best. On the day we went it was extremely hot in the restaurant to the point where we were both uncomfortably warm and ready to go at the end of dinner. The food was pretty good but very expensive. The best thing we had hands down were the loaded tots. The service was slow and wine flight suggestions ended up not being to our liking. The only reason I’d go back would be for happy hour, definitely not for dinner. Pretty disappointed, especially for how much we paid.

    I dined at Louvino last night and was very disappointed. This was not our first time at Louvino- our previous experiences were incredible: great food, service, and atmosphere. Last night, however, was not up to par to say the least. We chose to eat out to celebrate Father’s Day as my father was passing through town. Upon entering Louvino, we were seated at one of the tables by the windows. There was very little air flow, which, coupled with the extreme heat and the windows, resulted in a very hot dinner. My father commented multiple times about how it felt stuffy and hot at our table. I understand there may not be a ton they can do about that particular situation, but a simple standing fan would have helped immensely. Our service was the next disappointment. Our waitress pushed our table in and out as quickly as possible. The second we sat down, she came over and asked if we were ready to order drinks. Once we had a chance to look over the drink menu, we ordered drinks and she asked us several times if we wanted to get entrees started. We ordered an appetizer and she asked us while we were eating if we could get our order in for entrees. When she brought out our last entree, she asked if we wanted to order dessert. After entrees, it felt like a rush to get out the door. I was very disappointed with the overall experience. The food, however, was great as always and did not disappoint, much like almost everything else.

    We were so looking forward to dinner here but left after appetizers because it was so bad. The server we had was great but everything else was pretty bad. We ordered the black garlic hummus and seafood arancini. When the hummus was brought out to us I asked a question of the food runner and he was incredibly rude and condescending. The arancini was lukewarm at best and the black garlic hummus was inedible because it looked and tasted like cold refried beans. The hummus was SO dry, and was served with a bowl of cooked vegetables soaked in olive oil which didn’t really make sense. We ended up spending $100 on two wine flights and two appetizers. We will probably not be back to this location again.
