    We have dined at this lovely Cajun authentic restaurant multiple times. The first time we dined was my birthday and we asked for a booth that was so romantic. Our dining experience was so special because of our server, Steve that highly recommended certain wines and appetizers and entrees that were so flavorful.He rounded out the entire meal and it was a memorable experience. It is VERY rare for a foodie like me, not to have to season my food and the season in the She Crab Soup was amazing and I did not ask for any condiments. I had the Shrimp and Grits and that meal was amazing. My fiancé; had the duck gumbo soup that had a complex seasoning and the duck was cooked perfectly. I can't even remember the rest of his meal because I was absorbed in mine. Then, we had a bite of the chocolate bread pudding that Chef made and I have never tasted a better bread pudding. We have been back with a large group for brunch and had delicious charbroiled oysters. We went back last weekend again for the She Crab Soup and charbroiled oysters for brunch. I am going to try other items on the menu but I crave the soup and the oysters. Great Job to the Chef & Christine and to Nicole and Steve that have taken care of us. We will be back especially to see the Lights in Frisco Square and have dinner by the window.

    Dined on 11/5/2014
    The internet site calls this restaurant New Orleans cuisine. It may have had New Orleans food names but definitely not cooked in that style. My husband is from New Orleans. Fried food - not crisp. No spice. High Prices would have been well worth it if they had really served NO food. Will not be going again. Drove an hour to get there.

    Most every time we have dined here the food has been amazing. There were three of is our party and we tried the brunch on Sunday. One ordered off the normal menu and had the jazz pasta and was great as always. Another had the shrimp and grits and loved it. I tried the steak tenderloin hash. The steak was tough and not very plentiful. The potatoes had a good flavor, but overall I was very disappointed. I will definitely go back, but will avoid the steak and hash.

    Top notch in every regard! Immediately you feel comfortably with the establishment. The staff is professional in every regard, dress to greeting you as you walk in. I just love a staff that is dressed for the job. Dennis the bartender is worth a second trip perhaps this weekend for Sunday brunch. The food is beautifully presented and the tastes are over the top. My wife and I love great New Orleans style food and this is without a doubt the best we've had since eating at NOLA's in New Orleans. I had my first encounter with charbroiled oysters, grilled in the half shelf with a bit of butter and garlic and Parmesan cheese, OMG. This place is the real deal, can't wait for the weekend.

    Great little place in Frisco for Creole and Cajun food. The BBQ Shrimp and Grits were true to New Orleans style with a dark Roux. Seafood Gumbo had a great taste but was lacking in seafood content. My lovely bride has the Lamb shank - it was rich and very delicious. If you are looking for a quiet place, not it....but if you want the taste of NOLA with a bit of North Texas attitude (in a good way), this is the place to go!

    Went to celebrate an anniversary. Table was ready upon arrival and waiter immediately greeted us by telling us about the restaurant and the type of cuisine offered. Overall, the experience was a good one. The food was tasty, for the most part, but maybe light on the portions for the price. Expect to spend a c note plus some for a dinner for 2 with an app or 2, entrees, a cocktail each and dessert. Unfortunately, I was hoping for live entertainment from the grand piano but a musician was not available for this Saturday night. My wife had the shrimp and grits and thoroughly enjoyed it, along with her bananas foster cremecheese dessert. The bread pudding was very good. Overall, a nice evening.

    The food was good but over priced for what you get. Ambiance was good:) I was disappointed that I had made a reservation online and when I got there 5 min early I was told that I could go to the bar and grab a drink while they put my table together, I told the hostess I didn't drink and so she told me to wait a few minutes, so I generously waited and even went outside to meet my friend, when i came back in they still did not have the table ready and proceeded to tell me we didn't know if your party was going to show. I was thrown off because I had already made online reservations and whether my party was there or not I should have already been seated. She made the assumption that my party wasn't going to show and took forever to seat us.

    We had 7:00 pm reservations but arrived in the area earlier. We called to see if we could get seated at 6:00 and they were very accommodating... because there were only a couple of parties in the restaurant. We decided to sit at the bar so we could watch college football while we ate. The server at the bar was overwhelmingly attentive as in hovered over us for most of our meal. The seafood pasta dish we shared was good but not a wow. We also had cups of their She Crab Soup and Seafood Gumbo. Again, both were tastey but not memorable. We were only there for 45 - 60 minutes and a couple of more tables had filled when we left. This was our first visit so maybe Saturdays gear up later in the evening. Other reviews were average and we agree.

Both salmon dishes had no flavor. The red fish was fine. I will not returning to Nolla Grill. For a two hundred dollar dinner for the four of us, I believe Nolla Grill can improve.

    The food and service were excellent. We loved the trio too. It was nice to be able to try several things during restaurant week. I'm not sure we would have tried the bread pudding on a regular night. That would have been sad because it was outstanding. My dining companion asked in jest if he could lick the plate. It was that good. We wish you continued success!

    We visited Nola Grill in Frisco Square on Saturday night. They had live light Jazz and the restaurant looked great. We were seated right away but our server didn't see us. Our drink order was taken about 15-20 minutes in. It was delayed, but no so that we were upset. The Manager practically tripped over herself apologizing, gave us a free round, and our poor waiter was hyper attentive after that. The food came out immediately. It was recommended as "authentic" Cajun/Louisiana fair. I was with a foodie who didn't think they had the rue correct. His Gumbo didn't have enough rice, and overall my meal had a blacken taste though the meat was cooked properly. The duck leg had skin and the breast on the same plate did not. It was a fair meal.

    We visited for Dallas Restaurant Week and were very disappointed. We felt very rushed. Our entrees came out before we had a chance to finish our salads. Someone forgot the salt and the cheese for the grits. Etouffee was bland. Our waiter was extremely rude. When I poured the wine because he was nowhere to be seen, he rushed over and said, "I guess I need to get you a waiter's apron so you can have my job." I could go on and on, but needless to say, we won't be going back. When I spend $150 on a meal with wine for two, I expect a nice meal and experience. This place thinks too highly of itself. I felt like we totally wasted our time and money.

    Had reservation for 6pm during Restaurant Week. We were greeted and treated all night like VIPs. Food presentation was beautiful and it's obvious that the chef is meticulous and truly cares. The menu was very interesting and had some exciting looking options. The waiter we had was very attentive and truly accommodating in every way being able to discuss the menu items in great detail and even bringing us samples of the offered soups so we could decide which we preferred. Timing between courses was perfect and so we did not feel rushed at all. Gotta have the bread pudding with chocolate chips. The cheesecake was awesome too. All being prepared on site from scratch.

Reed was our server, he was very knowledgeable, polite and very attentive. The food was out of this world. you can tell it is made from scratch. If you want to eat true New Orleans food in Texas, then go to Nola Grill! We will definitely be telling all our friends about this unique restaurant and we will be back.
