We went to Bar Louie for happy hour and had a great experience. The food is good but the service was even better. Our waitress Nicolle provided some of the best service we’ve had at any restaurant in quite some time. She was totally on top of her game — greeting us as soon as we sat down, explaining the specials, taking our drink and food orders, bringing everything out quickly, checking back to see if we needed anything, stopping by and chatting for a bit. For happy hour beers on tap are $3, wine is $4, and appetizers are half off.

Here’s what we got (all appetizers):
– Potstickers: pork dumplings w/ szechwan sauce. Cooked perfectly and tasted great.

– Baked Goat Cheese: goat cheese surrounded with marinara. Comes with garlic toast. Nicolle brought out more bread when she saw we were out. It was a good dish but nothing spectacular.

– Cheese Quesadilla: large enough for sharing with a few people. Tasted good.

– Crab cake sliders: decent bits of crab, with lemon aioli, not too much filler. They were a little dry but tasty. I still haven’t had great crab cakes in this city. The fried onions were pretty sad — tiny stringy pieces of onions that were over fried.

Some of the wines were decent. Beer was good. Food is about 3 stars, service was 5 stars. So, I’m averaging it out to 4 for this place.

4 Stars
