    Instead of ordering a dish I ordered different pastries and it cost as much as a brunch dish was. So I got to try different things. It is a very loud place. Don’t go here on a date.

    The valet is now $8. Might be cheaper to park at the lot across the street.

    Service is not very attentive (missed our salad), slow. Atmosphere is great (but very loud - not suitable for a meeting). Food is a joke. Carbonara had cream in it! Tiramisu was almost all butter.

    Average food. Sooo overrated. we had spaghetti, truffle pizza, mac n cheese, beef ravioli, and portobello fries.

    Macaron from Bottega Louie
  • Tucker A.
    Definitely has become a bit of a scene the last few years, but the interior is still beautiful and the beignets are outSTANDing.
  • Salem A.
    Best macrons I've tried before. There are two dine in sections, one for dessert and coffee and the other for the full kitchen.

    A place be seen...vibrant atmosphere. Food overrated and underwhelmed. Best considered as tourist trap than a place of good food. Low value in any measurement.

    Try the grand macaron vanilla with raspberries, you will thank me:-)

    Every month, Bottega Louie adds a new flavor to the lineup. Their S'mores one has all the flavor of your favorite fireside treat, but it's more fit for afternoon tea than outdoor camping. Read more

    마카롱도 괜찮고, 이태리 음식들 맛납니다. 발렛은 안되고, 옆 쪽에 공공 주차장 이용해야 됩니다

    Vale pelo ambiente descontraído, jovial, movimentado, garçons atenciosos e freqüência descolada. Sugiro pedir um Atum grelhado e Salada Caprese. Ask 4 Tyler
