  • Easter Lunch 2014
    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 4/20/2014
    Made a reservation for 1:00 p.m. originally - called and changed to 1:30. Was told by the waitress at 1:45 they would be closing at 2:00. Was never advised to this when changing the reservation. Felt a little rushed but overall was good experience. Will return but just earlier

    We had Easter Brunch and it was perfect. Admittedly the great weather added to the experience. Good selection, great taste, timely service, and a very nice atmosphere. We plan to go back for other brunches.

    Previously known as "Vieux Carre," this local gem is now under new ownership as "The Afterthought." I highly recommend this spot for a weekend brunch! Our coffee cups were kept full, the music and overall ambience is lovely, and the pancakes are TO DIE FOR. The crab cake eggs Benedict is good, but not my favorite. The real winner is the banana pancakes with strawberries and whipped cream. You won't be disappointed.

    I took my wife here for Valentines Day. Great service and fantastic food. I'm not a "fancy food" kind of guy but I ordered the steak and it was absolutely amazing.

    Took my daughter and friends. The food and service was excellent. Everyone enjoyed their dish. The maui-maui was wondering. The pasta dish had fresh well seasoned, plump shrimp. Definitely looking forward to coming back. My regards to the chef.

    Reservations for 2 thru OT were easy & raised to 5 thru phone call an hour before reservation. New owners have maintained pleasant ambiance, friendly staff, and enhanced it with new decor. More than ample time was allowed for conversation, aided by low noise level and aptly spaced tables. Food was delicious from an adequately diverse menu. Portions were generous but not super-sized. No comment on either alcoholic beverages or dessert, since none were ordered. Altogether it was a very enjoyable lunch which added to getting acquainted with new friends from out of town.

    I've been a fan of Vieux Carre for years. It had been a while since my last visit. My most recent experience was unfortunate. The server was friendly and polite, that was the best part of the experience. The place was empty, not surprising given the cafeteria quality of my meal. The crab cakes used to be the best in Little Rock. They have deteriorated to a small pile of unfresh mush. To that point, we left crab on the plate...this NEVER happens in the crowd with which I frequently dine. The recipes have changed and most have simply lost their flavor, elegance, and freshness. Think thrice before choosing this as your destination. I will not return until something dramatically changes.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 7/14/2013
    After a long 1 hour wait, we enjoyed our brunch--especially the salmon enchiladas and the BLT with egg. The strawberry crunch salad was too salty but the staff was very nice.
