I booked a table to treat my parents for dinner, even though I am currently out of state. This is one of my favorite restaurants, and my parents reported back that the service, food, and ambiance was all excellent. They were impressed with the talented piano player as well. This is such a special restaurant that goes above and beyond to provide an amazing dining experience, even for my loved ones when I’m 1400 miles away. If you haven’t tried it yet, you are missing out!

Food was not as good as usual. Steak was overdone. Wait staff seemed disinterested.

Really disappointed outing at our "go to" restaurant! 😕

Everything about this restaurant was terrific. The wine by the glass menu is memorable. I've never seen such a selection of fine wines available by the glass in an American restaurant. If we lived in Lafayette, we'd dine there often. As it is, we'll go there whenever we pass through.

This was a disaster from the beginning. The manager was completely out of bounds with all our interaction. The the food was beyond bad. They even said our appetizer was bad. Then the main course. When the egg plant is the best tasting thing on your plate you are in deep trouble. The risotto was bad and the fish was bad. Maybe Covid has them serving something other than fresh. Been here several times, was always good. The only time the manager failed to show up at our table was to apologize for the bad food.
Run Forrest Run. Go to Ruth Chris if you want a good meal

A/c wasn’t working so we were sweating the entire time. I spent over $600 dollars to sweat. They did however keep our drinks filled. We had a very important business meeting with our top clients which was disappointing.

Food and service was great. Started with French 75, next came a dozen escargot in butter and garlic. Wife had the crawfish and corn soup. We both ordered the crispy duck. Add a glass of Pinot from Russian River and you have a perfect meal.
This place is for real.
