Louie’s by the Bay is a modern Italian steakhouse located on the waterfront along picturesque Mariner’s Mile in Newport Beach. With a 180-degree view of Newport Bay, a warm elegant design, and exceptional service, Louie’s brings an unparalleled concept to Newport Beach. The restaurant is owned and operated by longtime restauratuer, Ron Salisbury of The Cannery Seafood of the Pacific and El Cholo fame. The menu features authentic charcuterie, unique fresh pastas, prime steaks and chops, and a truly exceptional wine list.
"Louie" Zamperini befriended everyone, he would walk down the street and talk to everybody he met. The restaurant's inviting atmosphere evokes his fun loving spirit and restaurant owner, Ron Salisbury felt he wanted to pay homage to his longtime friend and babysitter. Louis Zamperini is a World War II hero whose life was featured in the film “Unbroken” - we feel it has never been a better time than to remember his tenacity, courage and will to survive.
