 (Baltimore)·Dined 5 days ago

Had a great time eating dinner in their outdoor court yard. They sat us near the fireplace which was nice as it was a cooler evening. I got the beer sampler and all 6 brews were great examples of each of their styles. We will definitely eat here again next time we are in New Orleans.

Great place to have a few drinks overlooking one of the highest walking traffic in NOLA. Enjoy people watching from the upper floor balcony and make sure you order some great food. Draft beers are worth every bit of the cost!

 (Washington DC)·Dined on November 9, 2017

We had a large group for a birthday party. The server continued to up the price by suggesting add ons to each person ‘s selection. She would say, “would you like to add gumbo to that?” Etc. She would not bring a birthday cake without a special order. She did not refill water glasses but always brought drinks right away. The prices seemed to be very high for a casual place. I️ am guessing many would call this place a “tourist trap “. The worst thing was that they added 18 percent gratuity to the bill and did not give us a chance to express our annoyance with this waiter through the tip. I️ will only go back to drink the beer. That was very good.

This food was a disappointment. No one in our party of 9 likes anything that they ordered, with the exception of the boudin ball appetizer. I personally ordered a pivot and it tasted like chemicals. The fries on the side were so hard and over cooked I couldn't eat them. The drinks were terrible as well. Over all I was embarrassed for bring my friends there with the experience we all had. I am not sure if it was an off night or this is all of the time. All I will say is eat at your own risk.

Excellent service and food but greatly let down by only having one single person male restroom to service 100+ customers due to a private party upstairs preventing access to the usual number of restrooms.

Went for Coolinary menu. The food was better than I expected and our server was great.

Disappointed that they only had 5 out of the 6 beers available when we got there. At the end of our meal, I overheard the waitress at another table say that they were down to 4 beers. Seems like poor planning to have run out of 1/3 of the options, especially considering it's a brewhouse.

We tried 3 different entrees and shared bites amongst all of us. Every entree was very tasty and plated with artistic display. Our favorite appetizer was boudin. Creme brulee was the favorite dessert. All 3 of entrees were 5 stars.

 (Philadelphia)·Dined on August 12, 2017

We ate off the coolinary menu (fixed price for 3 courses in august...ask your waitress). The redfish st. Louis was delicious & fresher tasting than most heavily sauced things you get in nola. I would definitely get that again. Their beers were good as well. Live jazz was great as well. I Definitely recommend this place and I've eaten at lots of quarter restaurants.

We had a very nice meal; good beer brewed on premises.
The staff is friendly, but they seemed to be too eager to see us leave as they wanted to clear the table too soon.
Overall, this is a good place in the French Quarter.

Server spilled hot gumbo on me ruining a pair of fairly new shorts. Gave me some soda water some 10 minutes later and a credit on my check for the cost of a $15 dish that didn't come close to the cost of my banana republic shorts. I am a local and will not likely be returning.

Good food and attentive service, although we were there on a Monday and at 6:30pm before they started to fill up. Modestly loud, but very pleasant for a New Orleans restaurant/bar/live music venue. The jazz group was good. The food was solidly prepared although the pasta Jambalaya was really mild to the point of bland. Really good bread pudding, but disappointing that they don't automatically serve it with a scoop of ice cream (do ask for this if you order!). Pleasant and engaging wait staff.

The waitress was snarky and rude. The appetizers (shrimp beignets and boudin balls) were very good. The seafood effoute had no seafood, the shrimp and grits was decent at best and the jumbalya pasta was dried out and over-cooked. The place was not busy and it is easy to see why. There are so many good restaurants in New Orleans...this is not one of them.
