James our server was fabulous. From the moment we sat down to the minute we left he was attentive, knowledgeable. Food was fabulous. We had the boudin, brussel sprouts, fried green tomatoes, to share. Drum fish special, veal for entree. Everything was well prepared and delicious. Highly recommend.

The food and people greeted us well however the service was very slow . Though our reservation was for 8:15 . We didn’t get a table until 8:40 and the food was served after ordering at 9:45 . Disappointed with the delay , otherwise the waiter and the host were at their best behavior. The food tasted good .

While in New Orleans I like to order similar dishes at different places. The oysters with Brie were a delicious variation I had not tried before. The bartender also knew how to mix a proper Sazarac. Wines by the glass limited but had some nice bottles for under $50. Excellent service Motown background music was a break from Zydeco. The homemade pecan pie was above excellent but needed a higher quality (fat content) vanilla ice cream to make it perfect.

Very nice space with exposed ceiling beams and some exposed brick. Felt intimate and classy.
Service was very attentive and friendly. The tuna entree was delicious, everything else (soup, étouffée and butterscotch dessert) was quite good but not outstanding.

We were visiting New Orleans and our criteria for a restaurant was “nearby” and had a wide selection on the menu. What luck to stumble onto this jewel. Had the Drum with kale and sweet potatoes. Far exceeded the similar meal at Emeril’s the night before. Simple and perfect seasoning that made all the flavors pop! It was my favorite meal while in the city. Great for gluten sensitive people like me. Highly recommend!

This was one of many return trips. The fish entrees were cooked to perfection. We all had different fish main courses. Oysters Rockefeller and salads were well presented and were great as well.

Service was good but not smothering. Will continue to go back.

The waitress’ first night. She was very green and we had to ask for silverware, plates... she brought the 2nd course with the first course. She hovered a lot and didn’t pick up social cues. I was not impressed and expected more.

Had a reservation for 6 at 5:30 pm. When I arrived, there was no one else there. Part of my party was 5 minutes late. During that time 2 parties of 10 came in and they gave our table away. We waited 45 min to be seated, and did not get our entrees until after 7:30. Had to gulp our food and pay early to get to our 8 pm event. The food was good, except for the etoufee, which was not even a little bit spicy. If you go, get the black drum, but not the creole food, and don’t be late!

We were excited to try an authentic creole restaurant and we were impressed by the atmosphere and service. The food was underwhelming and there were a significant amount of items on the menu which they were out of, most notably coffee which we found extremely odd.
We were visiting from out of town, but not sure I would recommend with so many other options available

We really want to love this place. Nice people pretty room but the food is not up to expectations. The pompano was served over very undercooked potatoes and the shrimp remoulade dressing was much too sweet. Shrimp etouffee was better suited for a Morrison's cafeteria. They can do better PLEASE

The food was awesome! We started with oysters rockefeller and bienville combo. Very old school NOLA style, but I really enjoyed it. For the entree, I had the eggplant stuffed with crab and shrimp. The eggplant was lightly fried which provided a nice textural contrast. It was rich and decadent and worth every yummy calorie. My husband had the seared drum with crimini mushrooms and brabant potatoes. I had plate envy! For dessert we had the banana bread pudding. I'll admit, this wasn't my fav. I'm just not a fan of dense bread puddings, but my husband loved it! Lastly service was fantastic!! Our server was accommodating, respectful of my limited time and knew the menu well. We will be back soon.

Wonderful date night place or dining with friends. Noise level was low enough to allow for dinner conversation. We went on Valentine Day and the restaurant and staff made it very special for us which was an unexpected surprise. In an area of New Orleans with a lot of charm, away from the tourist hectic noise but the ambiance of the city life.

Valentines.
Oyster artichoke soup was fantastic and oyster Brie app was lovely. Tuna was exceptional. The second main course, the shrimp etouffe, dropped the food score. Needed a bit of acid to brighten flavors and a bit of work on presentation. It had been sitting and sauce had skinned. The wine we selected was great. The comp champagne to begin was an excellent touch and matched our appetizers well. Atmosphere was fantastic and service was attentive. Don’t say this often... we’ll be back . Nice evening. Thankyou, Annunciation !

We booked a table for 6 for 7pm. Arriving at the restaurant 10 minutes early, our table wasn't ready until 7:15pm. After being seated, we ordered drinks and an appetizer in a reasonable amount of time. They arrived promptly. The appetizers and drinks were both quite good. We then ordered main courses, at some point before 8pm. And then we waited. And waited. And waited. The waiter came by once with more bread. Then he told us ours was the next out of the kitchen. Guess what? The next out of the kitchen went to a different table. So, we waited some more. Then we asked what was going on and he said that our food was being plated. 15 minutes went by, and... no food. The food finally arrived around 9pm and just wasn't that good. They offered to "make it up to us" by giving us dessert, but we instead asked for them to comp us some items. They credited off 70 bucks worth of drinks, so that was positive. But, rest assured, next time we're in NOLA, we won't be making a the trek to this restaurant.

From the moment we arrived the staff couldn’t do enough for us. The place is a converted warehouse; done very nicely. Lamp lit outside, clean cut within, and airy but in no way “cold”. A really nice bar for pre-dinner cocktails and then a nicely sized dining room with maybe 12 tables (there is more seating upstairs for groups I believe).
The menu was intriguing and the food, once we’d made our choice, absolutely sublime; both in terms of presentation and quality (the yellow-fin tuna and rice will have me back sooner rather than later)! A great wine list topped everything off nicely.
If I am asked “where?”, for an evening of NOLA fine dining (and a welcome change from the boisterousness of the French Quarter), my answer right now is easy... ANNUNCIATION!
