Loved the food and upstairs area, music, cigars, drinks.
Valentines dinner with my wife. They offered a 3 course meal with options. We had the salad with beets and beef filet with Brussel Sprouts, mushrooms and potatoes. Everything was great! Our compliments to the waiter staff and chef! We will return to try the other dishes.
If I could give more than 5 stars for the service I would! Eva ws wonderful! Attentive and enthusiastic!! It was a wonderful experience!
We had quite an enjoyable time at 219! We went this past Sunday for brunch. We ordered the shrimp & grits and the blackened salmon at the suggestion of our waitress - Eva the Diva. :) She was an uncommonly friendly & inviting host. She was SUCH a warm and personable presence & makes an awesome team member especially at a place that seems to be intended to exude southern charm. And if that’s indeed the case, Eva is steeped in it! The beignets were excellent. They were light & airy with just the right amount of sweetness as they’re supposed to be. I found the collards that accompanied the salmon to be a smidge too vinegary, acidic for my particular taste but they were still good. The salmon was excellent at a perfect medium rare. And the dirty rice was a great addition for the entree. My guest enjoyed the shrimp & grits although I noted that I’d have liked more shrimp & grits with less sauce/broth. Our entrees came with a complimentary Bellini & it was well-made. Keep at it, 219. We enjoyed ourselves. And Eva, don’t change a thing about yourself! We’ll be returning.
Lovely ambiance and wonderful server!
Wonderful food, appetizers, entrees, desserts. Attentive staff. Charming dining..
loved having our meal by the fire place next to the bar. Very nice treat on a cold night. Excellent Creole food
The food was excellent! I had the Salmon and it was cooked perfectly and flavorful. The staff is extremely friendly and will take care of your every need for a wonderful experience.
Bartender made an excellent mock tail!
The food was delicious however there were two other parties in the room so we found ourselves screaming to talk. Our waitress although sassy and fun was very slow; she messed up checks even though she gave us all a number; she forgot to bring change.
Came here for brunch and just loved it. The staff was thorough without getting too involved, and the food was perfect. We loved the beignets! Although we were clearly the first customers for the day, everyone was ready to go and we never got that awkward feeling that sometimes comes with being the only patrons. On another note, I found the decor to be absolutely lovely and romantic. It felt like sitting in a New Orleans restaurant.
Incredible food and even better service. New Years eve dinner was worth wonderful. Highly recommended.
The food was very good, starting from the Amuse all the way to the dessert!
Superb spot for Saturday/Sunday brunch. Menu has a heavy New Orleans Creole influence but has a few touches from the Chesapeake Bay mixed in. Menu choices were not extensive but balanced well so that there would be something that would appeal to anybody. Food was well prepared and not overly rich or spicy. Attentive and friendly service. Fireplaces in the dining room were crackling and were most welcome on a bitterly cold day.
Everything was very nice except my mother wanted the fried chicken & the waiter said you were out if it. She was NOT happy about that if you DON'T have an item then remove it from the menu !! Other than that everything was fine.
