Miami New Times' Description

If you had a back yard like Louie's, you'd brag about it too -- a tree-shaded, tri-level, oceanfront deck delivering panoramic views almost as impressive as chef Doug Shook's classically contemporary cuisine and that of his chef de cuisine Darrin Swartz. Try the seared foie gras with red onion marmalade and mustard plum vinaigrette. Try the chocolate brownie creme brulee for dessert. For that special occasion or romantic interlude (you dog, you), there's no better back yard than Louie's. Louie's has opened a top floor wine bar that serves small plates, enjoy the fine wines, liquers, delectable foods and fabulous views.

Tips from foursquare

  • Jimmy Buffett World on 08/03/11

    Jimmy Buffett lived next door once upon a time. He mentions Louie's in the liner notes for A1A and in the live version of "Trying to Reason With Hurricane Season" from Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays.

  • Steve S. on 12/20/10

    This is my favorite place... period. Come here for the sunset and skip the tourist mess at the square.

  • Donna P. on 01/24/12

    If you have an extra $100 to spend on dinner for two, you must reserve a night during your visit to have dinner and watch the sunset! The chef is awesome and the view is unparalleled! Reservations!
