    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 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.

    My family and I went to Nola the other night for dinner. They had a pianist playing that evening, that was nice, nothing like that in the Frisco area. 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.

    This was my 1st time here. There were only 3 waiters and they all seemed really busy. The salad was the best part of my meal. It was a tomato mozzerella salad w/balsamic glaze. The red fish was a little overcooked & bland. The grits & crawfish were great! The strawberry cake was dry as a board & the whipped topping on top still had chunks of agglutinated cream in it. So I only at the strawberries. My sister had the rootbeer brisket. This was just a sliced up pork loin that was super salty. The gouda mac and cheese was pretty good. A little on the gritty side, but good. Her bread pudding was her highlight of her dinner. It was a chocolate chip bread pudding that was nice, warm, and saucy. Sorry to say, I probably will not be returning.

    NOLA offers a great blend of traditional creole and southern cuisine. Blackened redfish over cheddar grits in a bowl of crawfish etouffee was amazing and the pork brisket (yes, pork brisket) with asparagus and baked mac-n-cheese might have been better. And to finish things off was a perfect bread pudding, the way it should be made, without fruit! This would be a great spot for a date or small get-together. Highly recommend it.

  • Great Restaurant/Bad Service
    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 8/12/2014
    Alright, I'll try not to be too harsh. It's likely our water was new. He didn't write down our order (messed it up initially which is why I was wondering). My wife pointed out that they don't do that in Rhse restaurants. Fine. This guy is new. He's got a ton of things to remember, so writing it down for starting out isn't a bad way to transition in. We ended up getting a free coke (he forgot for a long time), free dessert (he brought out the wrong one), and a free hurricane (compliments of the manager). Great food but bad service. Love the restaurant week menu.

    My wife is from New Orleans. She loves the food she was brought up on. NOLA helped her go back for a while. The chef trained with Emeril Lagasse and has brought true New Orleans food to north Texas. My wife got two appetizers and the She crab soup. The shrimp and grits would be a great entree if they just put two more shrimp in it. I had the pork brisket and the flavors were wonderful but the meat a little tough. Not, so I would not order it again. Our server was new and needs more training and the three piece band was a little loud when we were sitting two tables from them. The food was so wonderful I can't wait to go back.

    Excellent find & a very good surprise. Food excellent with that New Orleans slant. Fun to be entertained by a "good sound" jazz trio while dinning. My negative is the amount of time between food servings - took most of 1 1/2 hours for a three coarse meal plus an opening glass of wine. This Saturday evening, we had plenty of time and did enjoy the jazz music, but did began to worder if the food servings would ever get to our table. The wait staff very courteous, but "table service servings" left a lot to be desired - 1st waiter took drink order, after wine serving, took our meal order. 2nd waiter brought our wine from the bar. 3rd waiter brought first and second course, 4th waiter brought main entree, 1st waiter brought final billing.

    We were skeptical this restaurant could meet our expectations as we love New Orleans, and try to visit regularly. We were delighted with our meal! My husband declared their sazerac better than at Tujague's where they originated. The etouffe was sublime and made me wish for a trip back to one of my favorite cities. The jazz combo playing that night was great. We could have stayed there inhabiting that table all evening just to listen. Service was good, albeit a tad chatty. It took a little while to get the ball rolling, but once we had a drinks and our orders turned in, everything was perfect. I think the only thing I can recommend is a little more flavor in the bread pudding. It was rich, but lacked spice and/or bourbon sauce!

    second time here, this time for brunch with three friends. Veronica gave us very attentive service and the chef was also accommodating to the gluten free needs of one of us. not a huge or expansive menu but what they do, they do extremely well. great brunch special of the day and super drink specials as well. not crowded at all, (once this place is "discovered" that will change) so we were not rushed and felt we could visit rather than give up the booth as soon as our forks were down. will come back here and the two others that live locally said they would also.

    Lamb was out of stock so server offered to substitute with filet mignon. Sent it back because it was undercooked. Chef grilled their regular steak dish instead. I ordered medium but still came back very red in the middle. Wife order a pasta dish that was just ok at best. Pianist couldn't play a single tune literally. She was just messing around playing different chords that didn't even make sense. She tried to Alicia Keys but quit in the middle of the song and played some other nonesense. It was like someone practicing at home. Sounded terrible and had to listen to it for an hour. Definitely will not be going back ever.

    I invited my sisters and stepmom to Mothers Day lunch and it was great! We had a reservation - luckily, as it got quite crowded. The restaurant even called to confirm the reservation the day before. We arrived early but were seated right away. Free mimosas for moms was nice. Try the Andouille Sausage appetizers - with Red Beans and Rice. I had the NOLA Benedict - fried green tomatoes, crab, poached egg and creole mustard sauce -mmmm. My sister had the BBQ Shrimp and Grits - delciieux! The bread pudding was to die for! Our server was energetic and friendly. The only issue was that it took a while for our food to come once ordered, but then, it was a full restaurant.

    The husband was disappointed to find that they took off the pork chop. He went with the pasta which I had gotten before. I noticed that the portion has shrunk on that (before it was definitely enough for 2, so it was still large enough, but they kept the price and reduced the portion for sure). I tried their new pork dish - pork brisket. I'm pregnant so I had to get it med-well (it comes med-rare). It was still good but took some extra time to prepare. I think I should have chosen differently, but I had already made up my mind. The new potato salad that came with my dish was very mayo-heavy and I did not care for it. The charbroiled oysters are still a fave. Service was fair that night. I had to ask for bread/butter. Didn't see waiter much.

    My wife and I tried this one for a date night and it was really enjoyable with some areas of improvement. The starter cocktails were excellent and so was the Charbroiled Oysters for an appetizer. We also started with the gumbo for my wife and I had the lobster bisque. Both were great with the right amount of heat. For dinner, my wife had the special for that day. Unfortunately it was a bit bland (no heat). I had the special for the day before (red fish). The dish was excellent. The service was excellent and conversational. We really enjoyed having a server that knew the food and was enthusiastic about our visit. Try to sit far away from the piano. The music was loud for the size of the room and the floors really amplify the sound.

    The food is good, but the dining experience is not worth the price tag. Have tried the duck and sampled the steak. Both delicious (steak slightly overcooked for medium). Have visited twice for dinner. The first time the service was stellar. Second time it was only adequate. The hostess staff is young...again, does not fit the price tag of the meal. Ambiance leaves something to be desired. Maybe if someone were playing the piano that sits right at the front door, the ambiance could be taken up a notch. Love the location off Main Street Frisco.

    Having heard mixed reviews secondhand, we were a bit apprehensive about our visit. That changed quickly upon our arrival. The hostess and waiters were very friendly. Drinks were quickly served and appetizers were outstanding! My fiancée had the crab soup and we shared fried green tomatoes. Our entrees followed and exceeded our expectations. The NOLA Benedict was as good as anything I've enjoyed in New Orleans, and I've dined there many times. We would rate Nola as the top restaurant, actually in Frisco proper.

    The restaurant was a nice place tucked away. The food was good, out waitress was great, and the live music made for a very enjoyable dinner. The Hurricane's were very tasty and dessert so sweet. The meal was good and present very nicely. The pricing is a bit high, but still would recommend. Also I would add that even being a Saturday night and a soccer game going on. Service was good even with a pack house.

    It was our first time at the restaurant, We have been to New Orleans & the food was not quite there. We have lived in California wine country, the wine list was lacking variety, especially for spicier food & was way overpriced for Texas. We ordered wine just to go with the appetizer, & it took took 45 min to receive to appetizer. The server forgot to enter our order until our entree came & I asked what happened to our appetizer. The ambiance was low & it was noisy.
