Overall, it was a good experience. Started off with a complimentary meat ball. The Who Dat Shrimp was probably the best thing I had. All the sides were well done. Most of my table had perfectly cooked steaks with great temps. Personally, the two "Cowboy" steaks I had were overcooked (I sent the first one back and just wanted to eat the second after that point). Dessert was good as well. Definitely suggest the regular brownie over the red velvet cuz the portion size was waaaayyy bigger and softer.

Great, pricey, but what you would expect for a high end steakhouse. Service was impeccable. Almost to efficient. Their signature New York Strip was fabulous. I’m normally a ribeye guy, but went with the strip. Fantastic.

I will go back when I visit New Orleans.

This is a steakhouse, very nice, clean, ok service, and typical steakhouse menu. Our friends wanted a steak for dinner and we thought we’d try this place. They were happy with their meal, but I felt like my ribeye was just average and not worth the high price.

The food was quite good. I ordered a ribeye medium rare, and while nearly half of it was cooked to medium status, the remainder was medium rare and delicious. Our waiter could not have been more gracious under the circumstances that brought my wife and I to New Orleans. He brought us samples of the house meatballs and sauce decorated with a candle for my wife and then treated my wife to her Tiramisu for dessert.
