French Quarter New Orleans Kitchen
Wonderful!!!I found this place online when I researched romantic restaurants. I took my husband just to have a nice dinner and we both loved it. The food was awesome. The service was fast, friendly, and the waitress explained everything. We will defintely make this a regular get away.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMA great surpriseI'm so glad I viewed the negative Yelp reviews afterwards, not before. We were promptly seated at this festive-designed restaurant. The wine selection by glass was good and my specialty drink, a martini with pepper vodka and sour mix was fantastic! We. Had two apps, the grilled and raw oysters, both of which were excellent. My wife ordered rib tips which smelled a little better than they tasted. I had the crawfish étouffée, as a good standard assessment of sorts, and the roux was fantastic and the dish was everything I'd hoped it would be.
The service was friendly, professional and very knowledgeable. We eat out very often and this visit, our first here, really stood out.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMHidden gemVery good food and drinks.

Definitely recommend!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is a hidden gem. HavingThis is a hidden gem. Having spent an enormous amount of time in New Orleans I am a huge fan of Cajun food and most places up north don't even begin to get it right. This place does!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMSome of the prior reviewsSome of the prior reviews complained about the service. For us, the service was very good. (Maybe they read the reviews and adjusted accordingly?) Oyster po'boys were delicious. We definitely plan to go back.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMCame to listen and dance toCame to listen and dance to Downtown Charlie Brown. Unfortunately there was no dance floor and only three couples including me. Very disappointing. When that band plays at Pete Miller's in Wheeling the restaurant is packed, people are dancing and having a good time. After I left French Quarter I went to McGovern's in Glenview and the place was crowded, people dancing, drinking and having fun. So, the problem isn't spring break or Holy Week.
Food was very good.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWe really like the FrenchWe really like the French Quarter Kitchen. Great atmosphere and friendly service. We weren't nuts about the fried fish platter...not super fresh...but the pork was amazing! We'll be back again and again. :)3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat chef & staff = great diningPrior to reserving at this restaurant we saw several negative reviews so we were hesitant, but I am so glad we ignored them. This restaurant was wonderful. We ordered the Chef's 5 course dinner and had no idea of what we would be served but the selection was delightful, the service attentive without being intrusive, the food well seasoned and very fresh tasting. Each course was served not only fresh and hot, but attractively arranged and garnished. Several of our party have been to New Orleans and the flavor and quality of the dishes we were served were in keeping with that city's reputation as one of the great dining destinations of America. I give this restaurant, it's chef, wait staff and bartender 5 stars1/1/0001 4:00:00 PM
