As always our experience was very good! The waitress Jennifer provided us with superb service. We’ve experienced her service on a prior visit and was blessed to have her once again. The meal was awesomely delicious! This is our favorite restaurant to celebrate milestone occasions in our lives. Our 43rd Wedding Anniversary Dinner experience was “ALL THAT!”

About the restaurant
The only place to get true Creole food is in Louisiana, or at least in someone from Louisiana’s kitchen. Come reste un peu (stay awhile) to downtown Baton Rouge and visit Chef Mark Reilly's Creole kitchen.
