    What a gem! We had a Fantastic dining experience! Everything from the appetizers, main dish, waiter, maitre d, wine selection, dessert, to after dinner drinks was near perfection. I had the pan seared gulf fish. It was cooked just right and the sauce was rich and buttery. Absolutely delicious. I highly recommend this place. We will be back every time we visit New Orleans.

    My daughter and I went for her 25th birthday while celebrating in New Orleans. The bartender called off sick so they did not have cocktails that we were wanting and when we sat down the people next to us said please get up and leave as soon as you can because the food is terrible. My daughter and I ordered an appetizer because we didn’t want to be rude. The fried green tomatoes were cold on the inside and not tasty at all. We read mixed reviews but the menu I go to us. Sad. Our server was nice and accommodating he’s the only reason that we ordered an appetizer.

    The food was awful. The server had no experience. The front of house staff and bartender did not know what they were doing. This was not a place I would recommend to anyone. I had been several times before the pandemic and liked it; however, I will not be going back.

    Visiting from out of town and wanted to try some traditional New Orleans food. Started with boudin balls and those were yummy! My soft shell crab was a little spicy for my northern tastebuds but overall it was pretty amazing and I would def get again! Finished with bread pudding to end a fantastic meal.

    The staff was really kind to take our group on short notice. Our server was lovely and took great care of us while we waited. The food just didn’t impress. Brussels sprouts were recommended but underwhelming. Soft shell crab was tough. The kids were happy with their chicken tenders and fries though.

    Do not go here I was so upset. The food was awful compared to what New Orleans has to offer very blah no seasoned food. Steak had no flavor taste like I was biting into a cow. The best thing on the menu was the lamb chops. I didn’t enjoy any of the appetizers either. Huge disappointment.

    Appetizer, salad, veal was nice but filet was over cooked. Ordered medium rare and it was more medium well but was still tender. We felt very rushed which was kind of dissapointing. Staff was constantly asking us if they could take our appetizer plate when it still had food on it and we kept saying to just leave it be. Eventually the waifresss took my dates entree plate when he intended finishing what was on it so it was pretty clear that we needed to go or something even though we had a whole bottle of wine to finish. Was just an odd exchange in terms of service.

    Would not recommend this restaurant. Our meal was totally rushed we hadn’t finished our starter when our mains were brought out and then they tried to take our plates before we’d finished our meal the tempo of meal was absolutely awful . Staff were unfriendly and unprofessional. The restaurant had no atmosphere . We were totally disappointed with our evening .I would avoid this restaurant there’s too many better ones to try in New Orleans

    Horrible service. We were half way through the salads before we received the wine we ordered. Then there was a 45 minute delay between salad course and entrees. Diners who arrived after us received their entrees without delay. We raised issue with our waitress and asked to speak with the manager. The manager never bothered to come to our table and at least apologize. Even before the entrees arrived the waitress asked for our dessert order so that she could get that in before the kitchen closed. Food was very good once it arrived.

    Our experience was mixed. We ordered the oysters with Brie and the oysters brochette. Neither were remarkable and the brochette was over cooked and served in a pool of grease. I wasn’t really sure they were actually oysters at first. They were tough and the crust was falling off. Neither dish was seasoned very well. We also ordered the oyster artichoke soup as a starter. It was very lemon forward in flavor but was pleasant. It was served without a spoon. As for entrees, we had gulf fish with mushrooms and potatoes, gulf fish with artichoke and tomato and capers and also the soft shell crab Monica. The Monica was by far the best of the lot and I enjoyed it quite a lot. The fish with artichoke was also good - ok but not remarkable in any way. The other fish dish with mushrooms and potatoes was not good at all and we didn’t eat it. It was over cooked and lacked any seasoning. It did not even look appealing on the plate. The desserts were the highlight - cheesecake and lemon icebox pie. Both were very tasty and we enjoyed both, even thought a chisel and hammer may have assisted in getting through the pie crust. It was very good - just difficult to manage with the spoon we were provided. I am a fairly patient and not particularly demanding diner. We understand there are hits and misses in restaurants but this was mostly a big miss. We did let the wait staff know about the awful fish dish.
