The "family style" aspect of Louis' Basque Corner was not well-advertised on Yelp, so when we got there we were quite surprised by the long tables and boisterous conversations going on around the wood-paneled room. We decided to go ahead and eat there despite the...More

I really wanted to like this place. After all, I had never been to a Basque restaurant before. I am very forgiving of dives, and thought the seating of groups together on long tables by our surly, old waitress was... interesting, but the over-worn plates...More

A fun place to dine. Order one of their excellent entres and the whole table shares an aray of sides: beans, bread, salad, soup, wine, potatoes, mussels & rice and dessert. WE all had fun

Overall, good food. Big portions, multiple courses, including picon punch (must try). Chicken was memorable, though New York strip was pretty grizzly and undercooked. I'd definitely come back, looks like a hole in the wall from the outside, but good value for sure.
