Restaurant was closed when we showed up for our reservation. Turns out they are only open on weekends now, but haven't updated their reservation system.
Hotel restaurant. Very busy Holiday. Shortage of busboys and waitresses for crowd. Food was okay. Waitress did not get drink order correct. Could have resulted from language barrier. Overall manager needs to reassess staffing for the high volume on certain holidays and high volume convent.
As several people mentioned in comments, we didn’t realize it was a hotel restaurant until we arrived. We needed a place that could accommodate 6 people on a Saturday night and were happy to see good ratings and a menu that would work for everyone. We should have read the comments and not just looked at the ratings. There were about 10 total people in the restaurant yet we waited about 15 minutes for our table to be prepared, even though we had a reservation. Service was incredibly slow - although very kind. Food was not very good. Oysters were small and tasteless. French dip was over cooked. Fish tacos were bland. The gumbo and shrimp and grits were pretty good. Overall a very disappointing experience. I wouldn’t go back.
Make sure you have a reservation although we still waited a good 10 min to get seated. Very crowded during conventions
Will not be back. They closed the dining room and we sat at a dirty table in the lounge. The food was ok except for the cold loaf of bread which we asked for with the gumbo. However, good food does not make up for poor service and not being able to eat in the dining room.
It was a busy Saturday night in NoLa. Had trouble finding reservations for our food needs. Hit upon this by chance while surfing Open Table. Didn't realize until arrival that it is the hotel restaurant at the Marriott. That meant the lobby bar was full and the noise level fairly high. The food was of the quality expected from a good hotel restaurant. While I wouldn't go out of my way for another experience, I would also not hesitate to eat there if I were in the area.
Food and service was great
Delicious vegan entrees, like blackened tofu! Cheerful and attentive wait staff. Reasonably priced entrees. Please add vegan desserts to round out the menu!
Wonderful service and ambiance.
It was fabulous!! Food was awesome and the service was perfect!!! A++ time
This was our 10 year anniversary. The staff was very pleasant and accommodating. We appreciate everything they had done for us above and beyond. Thank you!
We had a great meal and look forward to returning! I didn't realize it was a hotel restaurant. I may not have gone had I realized the venue... so I'm glad I went!
The flatbread and salmon were great.... can't wait to try other menu items.
We went for brunch. Best part was made to order omelette with choice of seafood. Other selections were typical of a Buffett.
Food very salty and spicy hot.
Not a large selection of wines
Fell that was a cafeteria food rather than cooked by a chef
The menu was exciting, the food was excellent, and the service was great. We enjoyed eating at 5 fifty 5 for breakfast and for dinner. The breakfast buffet had an excellent array of food, including mini-beignets and omelets made to order. The dinner offerings were very good, and the portions were ample. We really enjoyed our experiences here.
