I’m so happy a friend who recently visited NOLA put this stop on my must-do list while I was in town for a conference. The food was wonderful, staff just as memorable. I dined alone and the staff was able to make Demi-portions so that I could try a few things. So far my best restaurant experience in NOLA! More

The beet salad was as good as it was with the last chief, I loved the pomegranate seeds . It added a special garnish and complimented the greens. My red fish entree was crispy on top and served hot . The orange buerre blanc sauce w the gnocchi was superb. I always have a wonderful meal there . My server was a little hurried taking care of different tables but the owner is always attentive and welcoming to his guests. I highly recommend this restaurant as a neighborhood secret. More

This was easily one of the best meals we’ve had in many years, from the beautiful cocktails to the friendly yet polished service, to the remarkable food. Everything we ordered was off the charts delicious. More

First time there and loved it. Great ambience and real New Orleans vibe. Inventive cocktails, nice wine list and by-the-glass. The charred crab appetizer was terrific--would have loved a bowl of that sauce for dipping! Entrees were the fish soup and braised pork shank-- both full of flavor and generous in portion. Our initial cocktail service was somewhat slow and we were delighted to learn that the drinks were comped, without us saying anything! Loved the entire experience and will be back. More

Kenton's has a great ambiance and excellent service (though sometimes a bit slow). The food is generally very good, though a few items seem expensive for what you get. Drinks are generally outstanding. Though Kenton's may seem on the expensive side, the overall experience makes it well worth it. More

We were pleasantly surprised by this neighborhood gem in the Uptown area. We tried the Chicken Schwarma, gyro Schwarma Plate, and our friends tried the lamb kabobs. All were very good but the Chicken was a little better than the Gyro which was slightly dry. Our friends said their lamb kabobs were outstanding. Portions were generous and there was wide variety of side dishes. More
