We had a lovely lunch at Louis. We were impressed with the food, service and ambiance in this restaurant. It has an upmarket, sophisticated feel with excellent quality food to match. Christchurch needs more fine dining restaurants of this calibre! It is now one of our top choice for special meals out.

This was our second time here and just like the first time it was amazing! We first came when they were just open so there weren't many people but this time the restaurant was basically full! The service has definately improved since our first visit which is good to see, very classy establishment.
We had Oysters (of course) the mignonette was our favorite fresh and tasty flavour. We also had the scallops and chicken, and the Pork. All the food was so perfect we just stared at each other in astonishment. Will definately be back!

A first class experience. The seafood, chicken, and steak dishes were all cooked to perfection with amazing sauces to compliment. The crispy duck fat potatoes and vegetables tasted delicious. One of the best restaurants we have been to for both high quality food and excellent service from our waitress Tessa.
We will definitely go back and highly recommend. So pleased we found this restaurant through First Table.

I wanted to take my parents out for lunch for my Dads 87th birthday and this was the perfect place. First of all the décor is beautiful so you don't feel out of place if you dress up, which we all did as it was such a special occasion. The service was very attentive but not intrusive. The food was beautifully presented and very tasty. We were offered more bread with the platter when it became obvious that we were going to finish it all! The background music suited the ambience of the bar and was quiet enough so that we could have a good chat. We would all go back again, sometimes its hard to impress 87 year olds, but this restaurant did! Thank you.

The oysters were outstanding as usual. We also had the scallops + chicken, beef fillet , and banana parfait which were also exceptional. One gripe with the good was with the fish croquettes which we also tried. They were extremely bitter and completely inedible which was a shame . I think the chefs should address this asap. Otherwise, it was a lovely experience as usual

I have been here many times and it has never been short of perfect. The service is impeccable, the food is amazing (even if you don't like oysters, but if you do I highly recommend the apple and grape), and the prices are very reasonable. The best place in the city to be fancy without breaking the bank, even if you weren't going through First Table.

Beautiful surroundings and the staff went over and beyond for us.
I asked for a chai latte which they don’t make, but no effort to them, got one made for me from the coffee bar next door. I really appreciated this as it completed a lovely meal.
The staff are very attentive and pleasant.
Will be back, thanks.

I would not have contemplated dining here without the First Table offer. The name does not do justice to the high quality of food,presentation and service our group experienced. It is not just a venue to consume oysters and expensive bubbly!
I would visit again for dinner because the place has a great atmosphere and a dining experience to match. Excellent wine list as well.

We had an amazing experience at Louis Champagne & Oyster Bar. The food was absolutely fantastic, and the service equally as good.

The food was all fresh, delicious and the presentation was outstanding. The waiter even tailor made a couple of specialty Gins to accompany our meal.

Would definitely dine here again, and won't mind at all paying full price for a such a great dining experience,
