Proper attire at little village **edited w/review**



First time the wife and I will be going tonight. What's the proper dress attire at this joint (man and woman).

Any suggestions on a food order?

TIA

Casual attire is fine, but I wouldn't get too sloppy. I've seen people there in shorts and sandals.

Jeans are definitely accepted there.

However, if I was going, I would wear slacks.

I would wear whatever you like because the server is going to do whatever he likes and the cook is going to cook whatever you order however he likes it.

Actually quite true. Don't expect much of an effort from the wait staff or kitchen.

It is in our nice place rotation, we like it. That being said get the bread, but know going in they charge for it. The "specials" never change and although the waitstaff do a great job describing them, they never tell you how much they cost, I guess the reason they keep them as specials and don't put them on the menu is so they don't have to print the price ( all of them are about double other menu item prices $50-60).

Go to Ruffino's. I've been going there constantly since it was Dinardo's. I had the best meal I've ever had there Friday night.

Count in me in on this.

Last time we went there, the service was terrible. And their famous bread is only good because they douse it in butter and oil.

Me too. Unimpressed with the place myself. Won't be back.

Just got back from Little Village. Everything was OK. Not worth the $125 I spent. Bread was very good at first, but hot soggy very quickly in the puddle of butter it was sitting in. The side salad that I got with my meal was very meh as the house dressing wasn't too good. The wife ordered the seafood medley pasta, and it was quite exceptional. Probably the best item we were served. I ordered to 9 oz filet minon. While it may have been the most tender piece of meat I've ever had, it greatly lacked any salt or pepper and was pretty flavorless. I ordered a loaded potato as my side which was loaded WAY too much with cold bacon bits, cold sour cream, and cold cheese. Worst loaded potato I've ever had. Over all, I'd give it a 4, and definitely not worth a return visit. Will stick with ruffinos/Texas de brazil on our nice date nights.

Actually, LV's red sauce is something that I crave...Their $10 lunch specials (with ice cream ) during the week are pretty tasty too..LV needs an affordable gunk free bread alternative too.

i'm not going to tell you what to order, but if you go to a place known more for their seafood and italian food and you order the steak, i'm not surprised it was underwhelming. the one downtown the one time I went was quite good

Actually, for a while, LV was the best place to go get a decently priced steak that was of great quality. That's not so much the case anymore though.

But I do agree with you. I've had nothing but great experiences at LV.. but I only go to the downtown location, and it's not really a "nice" night out to me because I go for Italian food. A $15 entree isn't fine dining. I guess if you go and get the $50 specials and overpriced cocktails, I can absolutely see why you'd be disappointed.

It's a tricky place because it's completely possible to go and drop hundreds.. and completely possible to go and spend $60.

When I went with my mother, we got the bread.. 2 beers each.. and each got an Italian dish which comes with a salad. Spent $50 before tip.

Wow, rough crowd here.

Not saying I disagree with those on here who say Ruffinos>LV...but the hate is almost Olive Garden level.

Jesus H Christ. Some of you are impossible to feed.

I really don't think expecting a good effort from the wait staff and the kitchen is too much to ask when charging the prices they charge. I've gotten neither in my past few visits, so I won't be going back. There is better Italian and steaks to be had in Baton Rouge at the same price point.
