Love the food, not what you might make at home but what you would find in New Orleans. Staters with crab puffs and sauteed hrimp almost a meal. Amazing that their chef has delighted diners for all 25 years they have been open. Wine menu offers nice variety. Both our Chardonnay and Spanish Rioja were yummy. After dinner foot taping... More

It seems this is the kind of place that is busy enough that they are not concerned with those of us who have a bad experience. Neither management nor owner are concerned with reviews or bad experiences. I posted this over a month ago and there is still nothing resembling an apology from anyone in charge. Our experience has now... More

Such great food! I started with a salad and chose a raspberry vinaigrette dressing. All their dressings are homemade and gluten free. I had the special which was modified gluten free. It was dirty rice with a wonderful creamy sauce topped with grouper and butterflied shrimp with a light drizzle of chipotle sauce. It was outstanding!!! I paired with a... More

We've always enjoyed Louisianne's in Middleton and just ate there again recently. The atmosphere is great, which you wouldn't necessarily expect from a restaurant in the basement. Very charming - great food!

We ate there as a group, and tried most of the appetizers. All of them were fantastic. Each of the entrees were amazing in their own way, and we all sampled everyone's dishes. There was plenty of food to go around--no one went hungry, and we still had money left in our meal reimbursement! (Sadly, the Pecan Pie was nothing... More

We have been dining with Louisiannes for 20 years! Love the quaint atmosphere, excellent service, and fantastic dishes! My husband and friends always get the special and I get the tenderloin and Cajun fettuccine. Rich, wonderful and beautiful presentation. Owner Gwen, on site with recommendations and wine pairings! Our spot! Jacqui Carpenter, Mssw

If you haven't been to Louisiannes you just have to go. I love everything about the restaurant: food, atmosphere, wait staff, bartenders, the owners, and chef. I am headed there tonight for dinner and am having a hard time deciding what to have because everything is so delicious!

We arrived without a reservation at about 7pm on a Saturday night and chose to grab a table by the bar instead of waiting 20 minutes for a table in the main dining room. This was my first time at Louisianne's and will probably be my last, which is a shame, since I love Cajun and Creole food, having lived... More

Excellent service. Immediate seating at the bar even though we did not have a reservation. The piano player spun New Orleans style music which was charming. We were very disappointed that the crab puffs contained *gasp* fake crab meat! This might have been acceptable in 1990, but hugely disappointing in 2016. Cosmopolitan was the best I've had in Madison but... More

A step in, or should I say a step down into Louisianne's restraurant harkens back to the 1980's-90's. The ambiance is dark with a low ceiling. Small alcoves with a bar in one corner. The menu is classic New Orleans with little attempt to contemporize with fresh, local ingredients that is more in keeping with cajun cooking today. Madison is... More
