We always come for the crab cake and the duck gumbo but are always surprised how good everything else is on menu tonight the steak and sea bass were exceptional and the duck risotto side quite tasty. Also to our surprise on early Thursday was 1/2 price wines. Our waitress Kresse was very helpful to complete a perfect evening.

Disappointed with the steak flavor and they managed to make a tasty fish special heavy with sauce covering the taste of the fish. Also, a restaurant of this caliber and price shouldn’t charge 4% for use of credit card use. That’ll keep me from giving them a second chance.

the veal cheeks and duck were excellent!! Only complaint was when we made reservation we asked for a booth, not near a waiter's station or the music. First table we were shown was next to the hostess station and right next to the live music (frankly not a good table at all). But we were shown another much more acceptable location promptly so all was well.
(just don't know why restaurants always seem to dole out bad tables first!)

We sat at a booth in the bar area for our anniversary. Food was amazing!! We had the lettuce wraps to start followed by blueisiana salad and gumbo. Main star was the steak and cake. What a dinner!! Matched with a red wine. Great service by Riley ( not sure the spelling sorrry) in the bar. Very attentive but gave you your space and time, with great recommendations.

Steak was as bad as it gets. One had so many veins and fat that it was uneatable and both was cold including all sides. Took a hour to get entree after salad. Will not go back again.

This may be a return to more normal business after covid but this is the first time since the late 1980's that I have experienced less than satisfactory food. Sea Bass was dry, the crispy duck was not crispy and some of the dessert changes were not my favorite. It was very noisy all in all not the most enjoyable experience for our guests and anniversary.
