Food was good, nothing I haven’t had before, nonetheless nothing was wrong with it. We did keep our meals simple with a cup of gumbo and the shrimp and grits. I do look forward to going back and trying a few other dishes. More

Good Food. Bit pricey for the portion size on some dishes, yet all very good. Excellent , friendly service. Very surprised however that a "fine dining" restaurant does not have black linens/napkins on hand for ladies and gentlemen in dark dresses or slacks. However, the very service oriented hostess went to a the neighboring sister restaurant to acquire a couple for our table...above and beyond to make up for the poor management planning. More

Pizzeria | French Quarter, New Orleans

My husband and I were looking for a place to sit and have pizza on our last night of vacation in the French Quarter. We had eaten many marvelous meals throughout the week, but were in the mood for something not rich, heavy or expensive. A bartender recommended the Louisiana Pizza Kitchen. We were not disappointed. The service was great and the pizzas we ordered were delicious! Sometimes on a trip, we have had the local pizza and have not cared for it at all. This was not the case here. In fact, we liked it as much or better than the pizza we eat in our home town! We had room for dessert, and the server suggested their homemade Creme Brulee. Wow, it was outstanding! We ate inside, but there was also some outside seating. The atmosphere is casual and somewhat cozy. I would definitely recommend this restaurant. More

A true hidden gem. At 7:00 all the guests arrive, only 20 or so people, and Mr. Gregory explains the sourcing of the shrimp and how the dinner itself will go. Everyone sits down in picnic-style tables and shortly thereafter dinner begins! There was a salad waiting for us when we sat down but the real treat is of course the shrimp. It is dumped straight on to the newspaper covered tables and from there it's first come first serve, but even so there were some leftover - you will not want for shrimp! We finished with an excellent dessert and left VERY full and feeling like we found a one of a kind place. Will definitely visit again and recommend often! More
