Solid Dining Experience
The food was great, presented well, and the staff fun and attentive. Great wine recommendation from the waiter and the food came out quickly. Would definitely return if I was around Lee's Circle. Oh and the view is just outstanding.

The sliders were great. The polenta was outstanding. The fried brussels sprouts weren't exactly what was expected, but tasty nonetheless. Even the braised greens were delicious.
The vanilla bean dessert was less than stellar, though. Too much espresso, not enough vanilla.
A very enjoyable evening. Will be back.

I was able to try T&L in its first week of opening. Typically, restaurants are working out their kinks and finding their groove in the first week. Not T&L. From the kitchen and timing, to the staff and service, T&L had all the makings of a seasoned restaurant and team of people who seemed as if they had been working together for some time.
First off, Andouille Tater Tots?! Yes, a tator tot with Andouille sausage in it. A word comes to mind: addiction. So good. I think we had 3 plates. Then we moved to jump lump crab, fried oysters, ricotta dumplings with kale, pork belly sliders(drool). For a main, I had the crispy pork belly with Brussels sprouts - never had sprouts like this before. The meal, the food, service - excellent. Must go.

Fantastic New Restaurant
My wife and I tried Tivoli & Lee for the first time this past weekend and had a fantastic dinner. One of the biggest reasons we wanted to try it out was because one of our favorite mixologists (Steve Y)was working there and makes some of the best cocktails in the city. As expected, our cocktails were amazing. The menu was impressive...some of the favorites that we ordered were the Andoui Tots, Dumplings (absolute favorite), Fried Brussel Sprouts (and i normally don't like brussel sprouts), and the Chicken entree. The service was very prompt and friendly as well (had previously read reviews about slow service but looks like they worked that out since). We'll definitely be back!

Great fresh food
Food and service were great, particularly the brussel sprout appetizer which our whole group loved. Four of us went for a business lunch, and though the restaurant was only half full it was very loud with the acoustics, but it wasn't like we could hear specifics of other peoples' conversations or vice versa. Service and ambiance was good and free valet parking was very convenient.

This restaurant is in a quieter area on Lee Circle but is definitely worth seeking out! We would travel any distance just for the to-die-for Brussels Sprouts appetizer! Service was wonderful! Menu was not extensive but food was fantastic and we will definitely return on our next visit to New Orleans! One of us is a vegetarian and she was VERY pleased with her meal! She's still raving about the Brussels Sprouts appetizer and the Brussels Salad. Sort of took a chance on this place and are SO glad we did!

Mothers Day Brunch
We made reservations at this new restaurant and were very pleased with our choice.
The food was delicious, staff knowledgable and friendly. the manager sat down and chatted with us about our experience as well. We recommend this restaurant as a must try. Be sure to check out the Bloody Mary bar and the fried chicken appetizer for brunch.
Great for kids as well. The kids had many choices off the regular menu that were served with their kid friendly instructions.
We look forward to returning for dinner very soon.

Still feels new but good eats
My Dining Companion and I stopped in for a late lunch one Saturday. There weren't many people there but we were attended to just fine. We both had a bloody mary from the bloody mary bar which was great. The bar was set up so you could make your own with any and all of the ingredients there from pickled veg to bacon and cheese. Very cool. $7 for one or $15 for all you can drink.
For food we had the chicken and waffle appetizer. I had the lamb burger and my DC had the shrimp and grits. Both entrees were quite good and quite filling. I'm hoping in the fall their brunch hours start about 9am during home Saints game as noon because it's a great location and easy walk to the Dome.

Fun Bloody Mary Bar
My wife and her friend really enjoyed the Bloody Mary Bar before going to the Theater. Food was great to taste and share. Egg Benedict were delicious. Keep doing what you are doing.

Dining at Tivoli and Lee
Food was fresh and local not the typical meat and potatoes it was exact antithesis of a chain restaurant .. Very refreshing. And I liked the fact that small portions were offered made it a plus

The andouille tots were relish and loved the $3 mimosas

Best meal in New Orleans
We spent 4 night in New Orleans and ate a variety of local food and recommended places, and our final dinner at Tivoli and Lee was hands down the best food and overall experience we had dining in the city. It was a fitting way to end a great trip to a great city.

Our experience for my boyfriend's birthday was amazing. Excellent food. Everything tasted amazing and fresh. It was only sad to see the place was so slow!! Everyone should be eating there.

We went for an anniversary
We went for an anniversary brunch to change things up a bit. Having eaten dinner here before and loved the food and come for the happy hour, we decided to try brunch. The food was outstanding-he got the chicken and waffle app-which he loved and I got the soup of the day, which happened to be a chilled Creole tomato. As a tomato lover this was right up my alley. Our entrees were also great. Their take on shrimp and grits was loaded with flavor and my simple classic breakfast was perfect. I loved the hashbrown balls-small and manageable and the multi-grain toast was perfect. The real draw were the $3 mimosas. Overall great food, comfortable and cozy booth perfect for a romantic meal. The service, though, was lacking.

Amazing food! Amazing prices -- even for the cocktails of the night for only $5.
Service was a bit lacking, but seemed like they were understaffed. The food was enough to easily make up for it!

This place was a great surprise! It's attached to the hotel modern and I've seen it many time but it's always empty. I decided to go for ease and give it a try and wasn't disappointed. Great food, great cocktails, great service!

Such a subtly charming ambience with equally warm and welcoming service. The gnocchi stood far out with pillow-like delicacy and crabmeat, corn and warm enough flavors for the cool fall night it was. Beet salad with cured pork and and crunchy praline candy, impeccable! Short Rib was amazingly well executed!! So tender, moist and perfectly paired with spoon bread and root vegetables. I can't wait for my next trip and I am incredibly excited for the chance to enjoy a Sunday or (Saturday) brunch. This was exactly what rustic Louisiana cuisine is and what the Cochon's and Boucherie restaurants strive to do! Chef Marcus thank you!

Great brunch before the game!
We met friends for brunch before an afternoon Saints game. We had drinks from the Bloody Mary bar which had a lot of cool extras like bacon and a variety of sea salts. The mimosas are only $3. The food was great and so was the price. All of this while you overlook the historic Lee Circle.

Quietly doing everything right
Enjoyed a fantastic lunch here recenty ... The food was terrific and service outstanding. The only curious thing was that we were the only diners there for a Friday lunch. I imagine the dinner crowd is more robust - and I certainly hope so, because the restaurant is absolutely fantastic. This place deserves to succeed, and hopefully the word will get out about how good it is.
