We're glad to hear that the sangria comes so highly recommended! We hope that another drink or menu item earns another star in the future. Either way, we'd love to see you again! -PB

Bar Louie is the "go to" restaurant/bar for my wife and me. We love the food and drink and our favorite servers, Peter and Mara in particular and our favorite manager, Adam. The service is outstanding and the happy hour pricing gives great value.
