  • This place was literally next to my hotel, best potato soup I have ever had! I ordered the half sandwich with a cup of soup for $11. The Italian sandwich on chibatta bread was great too. Everything tasted fresh. The servers were friendly and attentive. The food came quickly. The atmosphere was relaxing with soft background music playing. I will definitely be returning during my future trips to Springfield.

    Goivanna Iaffaldano

  • Very friendly and attentive staff! Very upscale and fancy without making you feel like you need a jacket and tie. Great place for gatherings and receptions.

    I ordered the cheeseburger for lunch and was very much impressed with the quality and taste! A *cheeseburger*! Will definitely be returning sometime not only for lunch but to also see what the steak and seafood offered for the evening meal is like!

    David Layne

  • My family and I went here for my birthday a few nights ago. I would highly recommend this place for a special occasion. The food and presentation was simply outstanding. We tried the chili lime calamari. The best calamari I have ever tasted, and I have it everywhere that has it!! Also, my husband had the filet and it was cooked to perfection. A few of us had the roasted chicken over gnocchi. The chicken was SO flavorful! And the gnocchi... I am Italian and gnocchi is my absolute favorite, but most places don't have it on the menu. If they do, it's never done right. This gnocchi was absolutely perfect!! Perfect consistency and absolutely delicious! Now that I think about it, why wait for a special occasion?? Treat yourself and try Loukinens on 4th!

  • It is refreshing how chef manages to make the environment both open and bright and intimate and exclusive. The hosts are well versed on the menu and welcoming. Quality and presentation is better than I expected.
