My kid (grown) and I were in for lunch, he had a sandwich and I had the seafood linguine with the pesto. What appeared to be a lunch portion at first must have come in a deeper bowl, I was absolutely stuffed and I am a big eater. Service was prompt and courteous, food arrived quickly but we did have...

We have turned this into our go to spot anytime we go to Monterey. The fried mushrooms alone are enough reason to dine here. No complaints. Fast service, amazing food. Great family atmosphere.

Had a really enjoyable pasta dinner - one meatball dish, the other a prawn spaghetti - at Louie's and were ably looked after my Mr Diego. The food was excellent - rich, flavoursome, good portion sizes. Compared to the disgraceful, tasteless, watery rubbish last time we ate pasta at a Jamie Oliver's restaurant in the UK, this was heaven. Would... More

Ok the sad part here is it is very unorganized, the bar and tables operate as separate identities, this is a pain for bills. The staff would not help carry drinks but look forward to the tip. As an example, we ordered flights of wine and with no try had to manage 10 glasses to a small table. Staff did... More

Grwat food, great view, even at night! This place is in a great location, near the aquarium on Cannery Row. I had shrimp Scampi linguine with mushrooms and spinach in the light buttery sauce. It was very good for this light eater. My partner had a huge dish of chicken parmesan and spaghetti. It was great too. Nice place, decent... More

The seafood is made with fresh ingredients . I had lunch here when on Canery Row visiting the Monterey Aquarium. The Frutti del Mare Risotto was very good and filling. A great view of the bay is a nice extra. Prices were quite reasonable and I would come again.

In town for a conference; my colleague wandered over to Louie's. it is located right on Cannery Row and if possible, the seats overlooking the water are spectacular. Food is average. Service is average. It is Monterrey so the prices reflect the area. Ordered cioppino- about 28.00 for large bowl and 19.95 for a regular. It was passable; very little... More

I've been here to dine a few times in the past, so I thought I'd share some information about Louies. I had the seafood pasta, and I ate it all. More than enough to split between two, but being the seafood pig that I am, I finished it! Love the food and vibe from this place. Not cheap, but not... More

Nice place inside and location is good. On Cannery Row. Service was not very good. Has to ask for bread. Was only offered one drink refill at the end of meal. Fish salad was terrible. basically boiled fish on lettuce, with no spices or flavor. $18.95. The only good part of this salad was that the portions of the various... More
