Weekend of the Jimmy Buffett concert. No staff to assist resulting in our sitting for long period before service and ran over to dinner meal so we could not use the lunch menu. Waiter said their staffing sucks. That was true. Food not great and very overpriced. Would not recommend.
Never a bad meal there.
Mother's Day brunch. Was OK. Not worth the price - neither the food nor the service. Nothing really wrong - but nothing outstanding either. Meh.
Maybe we caught them on an off day...
We will never go back. Bartender was unfriendly to the point of borderline rude. She was unattentive. Our waiter wasn't much better. The restaurant was extremely disorganized, under staffed, no management present and wound up only having 2 appetizers, one of which was overcooked.
I've been in the restaurant business for 40 years. I haven't seen anything this bad since I worked at Denny's when I was 18 and I was dishwasher working the graveyard shift.
This was our second visit and it's official, we LOVE this place. Fantastic food and wonderful wait staff. Can't wait to go back!
Nola has always been a favorite spot, until this past Saturday night. Service was good but the food was very lacking. It was so mediocre the disappointment we experienced will make us not want to return any time soon. The char-broiled oysters, which are always a favorite were not very char-broiled, but dripping in butter (greasy). The flat iron steak was dry and not very tasty. The grits, were very substandard and that is always a must to have. It will be a while before we want to spend $200+ for a meal & drinks and not be wowed by the food.
Excellent food! Always cooked to perfection. They know how to cook seafood. The duck gumbo is to die for!
Our evening dinner was somewhat inconsistent. We were greeted by a friendly server who quickly brought our food and appetizer. And then.....the wait began. It appears that the kitchen was not prepared for the patrons who arrived and our order just disappeared. 45 minutes after our appetizer, our food finally arrived. Either they were unprepared or they were really proud of their work in the kitchen. Not sure. In the end, the dinners were pretty average for what we paid. This restaurant has potential but they need to figure out the process before they look to fill the tables.
Service was attentive, but food actually came too fast. Oysters, She Crab soup, and Duck Andoulle Gumbo all good appetizers, but not really enough Duck to add that flavor profile to the dish. Redfish with Gouda Grits and Crawfish Etouffe was very good. Shrimp with BBQ reduction and Gouda Grits was tasty, but the shrimp was a little overcooked. Great experience overall.
Food was fantastic! I came with a group of 4, Friday night, not too crowded even at 7. I had 2 White cosmos which were delicious, char-broiled oysters and the fried green tomatoes were to die for! Gumbo was pretty good and I also had the BBQ Shrimp and Grits for my entrée which was great. Only compliant was Service was extremely slow. Our server would disappear for 15 minutes at a time and just wasn't very attentive and it was not busy at all.
