The service was good, & the waitress attentive. I had a Caesar salad - mediocre, and a bowl of chicken & sausage gumbo, which was plentiful but also mediocre. This restaurant is not up to the standard set by the previous owner or the Cajun House in St Albert. I will not eat there again. Not recommended.

One of my favorite places to eat over the years. Have been here many times and will continue to come back for the food quality and service. Great taste! and the new Fried Green tomatoes are a must to try.

Great evening right from the welcome from the manager to the waitress not rushing us as we caught up with our friends. And the gluten free was truly gluten free

We have been to Louisiana Purchase a 4-5 times over the years. It has been a bit of a novelty but food has never been out of the park. Have went with a few groups and tasted most items. Nothing I’d hurry back for but the zydeco music can be fun.

Our waitress was great, the speed of the service was great as we were in a hurry. One glitch though. One steak order was sent back because it was over cooked and did not come back out till everyone was done. A little frustrating. However to their credit they did not charge her for her meal. Overall it was very good.

It was a little pricey for what I'm use to paying but being it was for an Aunt and Uncles Anniversary it was worth it. The food was very tasty. I will probably go again.

We enjoyed the visit and the food was very good. I was sort of hoping the satisfaction plate would have more flavour. We make something similar at home so it was a disappointment that ours has more kapow than LP.
However dem bones were so good I'll be back for them for sure!

The food, service, ambiance, and location were excellent. I had the Special that day, the portion/presentation was spot on. Service was perfect, my coffee was topped, conversations flowed (without constantly being interrupted with requests to top up, it was simply a questioning glance with the carafe and it was done); our waitress (crap I am an awful reviewer, I forgot our servers name after the fantastic service *facepalm*) was knowledgeable about substitutions/diets concerns, and suggestions. We were in the early lunch period, so it was quiet and beginning to fill as we left. Easy parking and easy to find. Overall a great lunch with friends.

Food was ok, service was ok. Really liked the room. Maybe a little pricey. I'd go again, just not right away. Weird how they brought out very stale bread and, after I'd mentioned it, said "yeah, we don't order it very often so all of our bread is stale". Pretty half-assed.

Overall very disappointed! Use to go frequently many years ago ( >15 yrs) and was awesome, thought would try again; brought an out of town guest. Food was terrible, it was embarrassing; I've had fast food Cajun much better! Absolutely outrageous prices for what was served. Only able to eat 1/4 of the meal. Will never return. Server was friendly but didn't know the wine list or menu very well.

The food was good but the Jambalaya could have had a few more pieces of protein: more than one piece of shrimp, a few more pieces of chicken and sausages. There was a sufficient amount of rice and veggies. The service was good with the servers smiling and taking care that we enjoyed our meal. Request for special seating when reserving was honoured and a good spot was kept for us to visit and chat. The ambience was conducive to a good evening.

Food was amazing and fast service waitress was very pleasant and fun to deal with. Over all a very good experience the only mild downside was the overall noise level is a little loud but for most it's not a big deal.

Usually I can't wait to get back to Louisiana Purchase. Now not so much. We were seated at one of the worst tables but the restaurant was not full. When our guests arrived they were not asked if they would like a drink. We were never asked if we wanted additional drinks or if our meal was okay. I've now moved it off my top ten list.

Have been going to Louisiana Purchase since the late 1980's when this restaurant opened. Have always loved it and in my history have never had a disappointing meal. This is a really nice restaurant for any reason to go out!
Don't forget their chocolate pecan pie! One of their many awesome in restaurant made desserts.
High recommendation for Louisiana Purchase as a great choice for a restaurant outing.

Great service stood out in what was overall a good Cajun dining experience on a Saturday night. The prices were a bit more than one might expect for what is primarily comfort food on the menu.

We enjoyed the Grilled Heart of Romaine Salad, the lightly charred romaine lettuce a first time experience. The Bon Ton Poulet was both tasty and filling. The same can be said about the "Satisfaction" Plate, a Louisiana jambalaya dish.
