What a wonderful place to spend a special occasion! The food is delicious and of great quality, and the service is excellent. We enjoyed every item we ordered and will definitely be back!

Me and my boyfriend went here for New Years Eve. They had decorated the tables with party hats and poppers which was really cute and for the restaurant being so busy, service was great and our waiter was very attentive. I had the filet and my boyfriend had the duck. Everything was cooked perfectly, but you may want to bring a packet of salt with you for your visit here. Everything was incredibly under seasoned and my boyfriends "glaze" that was paired with his duck had broken down to a light sauce at best. All in all, we enjoyed our experience and plan to be coming back!

Got the duck on New Years Eve
My guests really enjoyed their food, my wife and I got the duck, some pieces were over done, some were hardly cooked
Extremely disappointing

I downgraded the food in this review as they had a special menu. I ordered a shrimp and avacado salad; the shrimp were very small and had a distinctly metallic taste. The mild avacado dressing could not hide the foul taste. The fillet was excellent. I missed the opportunity to get the french onion soup as it was not on the menu. Desserts were quite small. for 2 people with 2 glasses of wine and 2 beer with tip my tab was $220.00

The food was very overpriced. You could pay the same and experience a great meal at Commander's Palace.
The food was mediocre. Our appetizer looked like a pot pie from the freezer section. It also arrived to the table cold.

The patrons were all senior citizens. I was probably the youngest in there and I'm in my mid 30s. Our waiter however was very nice.
