Went there for dinner on 4/12/11. Food was good. Table service was not the best but, ok. They forgot to bring a thing or 2. also, they dont tell you this but they charge you a 10% surcharge on your bill. When we asked what this was the waitress said "Oh, they dont want to raise the prices so we charge you a surcharge!!" No where was it written on the menu or anywhere in the restaurant that there is a 10% surcharge on all meals. so the $20 fixed price meal is really $22 ????? I would not recommend this place because of their business practices. Food was ok though.

I am a regular at Louie and Johnny's and find this restaurant to be one of the best Italian restaurants I've ever been to. Tried an Arthur Ave restaurant not too long ago and it couldn't even compare! The owners go out of their way to make your dining experience pleasurable. The food is outstanding!

I am a regular customer at Louie and Johnny's. The food is fabulous. There is no need to go to Arthur Ave. ever again. I have brought many friends and family there who agree the it is a great value. Roseann is a doll. She works hard to please everyone. All items are wonderfully prepared. The portions are BIG. Most of the customers are regulars who return again and again for a great meal in a delightful setting. It is one of the treasures of Yonkers.

Not a restaurant that welcomes African Americans. Shame on them for not treating people with equality.

We drive from Long Island to Yonkers to play the slots but also to enjoy the excellent food and hospitality at Louie and Johnnies.
Good value, good service and friendly ownership. Jackpot!
We'll be back real soon!

My husband and I recently bought a home in Yonkers. We tried this restaurant by recommendation. Although we enjoyed the food- the service was terrible! It was a woman who was unpleasant and very non-attentive. We were turned off and my husband was furious. A month later a few of my friends were meeting there so I had to go. Well, we had a waitress named Diana. She helped us choose great courses and checked on us with every course we received. She was very nice and made us feel as though she appreciated our business. We were all delighted and it made a huge difference on my dining experience. I would love to go again to enjoy the great food and hopefully be able to request that waitress.

Just wanted to say that i recommend this restaurant to everyone. Not only is the food wonderful, the staff, the atmosphere and the owners are absolutely the best. And for those annoyed customers that are upset that they actually had to wait for a table, waiting means the food is GREAT!!! I don't know about you but if i went to a restaurant without a wait, especially on a weekend or a time when the average restaurant should be busy, i would walk out. Who on earth wants to eat at a place thats empty on what should be a busy night . Think about it GENIUS !!!! And for the other angry customer that is mad that they couldn't eat at the bar, HELLO, it's a restaurant, you eat at a table and drink at the bar. The average upscale place doesn't allow entree's at the bar, guess that's why should continue getting takeout.

My husband and I just came back from dining at L & J. Every course was over the top delicious and served graciously as well as we were asked (on EACH course) if everything was OK. Also, the total bill was surprisingly resaonable compared to other places we go. We will ABSOLUTLEY be return customers, again and again!

As to reading the two "negative" reviews, let me say this: The one who waited and could not get seated and wanted to eat the bar...heads up, use common sense, go at an hour where the place is slower so there won't be a seating issue, duuhh, also, did you really look at the bar, tiny, certainly NOT suited for plates of food!!

For the "dry" veal chop, plainly, you were looking to score a freebee.

Ask for something else without raised tempers and you would have gottten another entree. Restaurants survive on good reputations and cannot afford to treat patrons the way you describe. Sorry, you are dead wrong, go to the diner up the street instead!!

My husband and I and other friends have ate at this restaurant for a very long time, we have been friends with the owners for a long time. We started at the smaller place on Mile Square Road and Central Avenue and followed to Yonkers Avenue which a is much larger place and very comfortable to be in. The food is delicious and the serving is plentiful. Expect a full restaurant on the weekends and the wait is worth it, if you want good food then sit at the bar and have a drink while you wait. Any place you go when they are busy you will probably not get 100% satisfaction. but if you are nice to them they are nice to you. thats goes anywhere.

I would def recommend louie and johnnys.
Have eaten in it lots of times, and each time it was lovely.
Yeah if you go a sat nite, you need to wait, as they don't take reservations and they are such a busy place.
But the food is always spectacular

I would just like to say that my husband and I frequent Louie & Johnnies quite often. Therefore, I am well aware of the night anonymous is referring to, as we happened to be there. Firstly, I would just like to state that while I did not witness the happenings of her and her husband's dining experience, much to the contrary, my husband and I have always enjoyed a delicious & extremely pleasant dining experience at Louie & Johnnies. Nevertheless, what I did witness was the owner and his wife, instead, respectfully attempt to reconcile any issues that anonymous and her husband may have had. Moreover, they did so with class, an attribute that this couple was clearly lacking. My suggestion to anonymous and her husband is that they refrain from going out to eat in the future so that they do not disrupt other patrons, owners and staff members as they did that night. Lastly, anonymous, I can only hope that readers will discount your tasteless and ??horrific? lies. Shame on you!

We chose this restaurant to celebrate my husbands birthday and what a disappointing choice it was! As they do not take reservations, we waited about an hour to be seated. Once seated we waited another hour before my husband had to go to the kitchen himself to ask for either our salads or appetizers which then were served together. When his requested medium rare veal chop finally was served it was cooked to medium well and very dry, not to his liking at all. We notified the waitress and she said she would have to discuss it with the chef. We waited and waited until two other waiters approached us to which we requested our check. She returns stating that we will still need to pay for the veal chop since it was the most expensive item on the menu - I have never experienced such a lack of customer service - we definately would not recommend this restaurant to anyone. When we indicated we would not be willing to pay for the item as she had already admitted it was well over-cooked she then added an open $$ item to the check to account for the measly little complimentary salad my husband shared with me. We did not order a salad, it comes on the table! Oh in addition, we were also confronted by this waitress, owner/chef, owner/waitress/wife, and other staff outside in the parking lot when we made the choice not to leave a gratuity based on the poor service. Oh, isn't that what gratuity is supposed to be for - good service? Save yourself the disappointment, eat somewhere your business is appreciated.

my husband and i often get their food delivered but decided to go there one night. with no reservations we had to wait... understandable. we waited at the bar for an hour barely getting drink service and when we would ask it was as thought it was a bother. the male owner (maybe the husband) was tell us hold on. then we were getting hungry and asked to eat at the bar to which the owner was bothered! with a sound of disgust he said, "i am busy sorting out checks." we felt totally uncomfortable and were about to leave as our table came up, of course next to loudest bunch of people that were disturbing every other table there!! the food was ok and service terrible. i was so dissappointed, as we had loved the food prior to this. now we just think of the nasty owner and order delivery from some where else, somewhere that appreciates our business.

My wife and I eat here regularly. We ate there last night and it was as good as ever. We spend a lot of time in Florida and make sure we get there at least
once when we are in Yonkers. The food is excellent and prices are reasonable. I recommend it to everyone

The pasta is great and the price really low for the quality and quantity. Better be really hungry or ready to share if you order the pasta!
I love pizza, but I've never even tryed it because the pasta is so great!
