We had a great experience last Monday night! The happy hour specials were great! The drinks and food were amazing! Get the cauliflower taco!!!! I would definitely recommend. Service was also great! Even dealing with a big party. I will say they will NOT split checks, but they are pretty clear about that on their website and before we sat down! More

This is a great place with a great bar It has a fun vibe and is worth a nice evening out. Oysters are fantastic and desserts are great. The one problem we had was they seated a party of 20 instead of keeping our reservation for a table of six. We had to wait for over an hour to get a table. However, the manager was great and comped is a bottle of wine and dessert. So, overall it was a great experience. More

This is a great place to eat before an event at the Superdome as it is an easy walk from the restaurant to the dome. The food is excellent. Two people In my party had fish - Salmon was excellent and the other fish dish had brown butter sauce which was crazy good. They had wonderful crawfish etouffee which has a bit of something in it that was just different enough to place their own signature on it. Really excellent! Another person had the panned veal with fettuccine alfredo which was very good, too. Highly recommend the deviled eggs with crab for an appetizer. Gumbo also wonderful! The service was ok, but they were very busy due to a dome event. I would definitely eat here again. More
