Sunday brunch is unbeatable. Delicious, authentic, great value. Appetizer, entree, and dessert included in the price with the option to add bottomless bloody Mary’s or Mimosas for $10 more. Great vibe with live jazz during our Sunday brunch.

Outstanding service. Excellent food, and great ambiance. I went with a friend as part of our quest to find "the best Shrimp and Grits in D.C.". We ordered the Shrimp and Grits as well as the Seafood Gumbo....both were outstanding(as were the Grilled Oysters).

First let me say that I lived in Louisiana for 26 years, so I know Louisiana style cooking! I really wanted to like this place but it really fell short. We started with the charbroiled oysters, which were fantastic! Lots of parmesan, butter and garlic and served with a loaf of soft bread for sopping in up. Then the fried green tomatoes with shrimp remoulade started downhill. The shrimp were very good, but the tomatoes were sliced so thinly I don't know what the breading was attached to. The seasoning was good, but there was not tomato flavor at all. My husband had the fried catfish served with hoppin john. It was a beautiful plate, but sadly the catfish was bland and the vegetables were underseasoned. I had the barbeque shrimp. Now, I've had them at Pascal Manale's in New Orleans where they were invented, so I always end up comparing. The sauce was not the same, but still very tasty. It also came with a loaf of soft bread for sopping up the sauce. The good news is that the shrimp were peeled except for the head and tail, which makes it so much easier to eat! The bad news is that the shrimp were so overcooked that they were mushy. Having cooked many shrimp myself, I suspect they cook up a big pot of shrimp and sauce and just leave it simmering until someone orders it. If they had only been freshly cooked it would have been outstanding. The sauce was so good my husband dipped is bland catfish into it! We finished by splitting the pecan tart and asked for vanilla ice cream instead of mint chip. It was delicious, but so rich! Good thing we split it because it was a challenge to eat the whole thing!

We enjoyed our Valentine's Day Dinner here and it was a fantastic experience. A wonderful place to enjoy a romantic dinner for two. Food, service and atmosphere were 1st Class.

Went for Valentine's Day and had the Prix-Fix pricing. The food was great and the service was fantastic. Thank you for a great time.

I took my wife for Valentine's Day dinner. They chose to have a special package menu and double the price of an entre which was a little tacky...basic meal with 1 beer and 1 Chardonnay should not have cost $148.00. All i had was a prime rib and wifey had the catfish. Food and service was great though!

The food is absolutely A1.. surprised it was a little more noisy from what I expected but that did not take away from the quality food and good atmosphere. Went for Valentine's day...highly recommended

Went for valentine's day 2018. My first visit. Food was bland, had high hopes about this place because of my friends. Not sure I'd want to return.

As a return customer, I was disappointed with the food. Not sure if it was just the new items we tried, but very disappointed.

I went for Mardi Gras lunch and wasn't disappointed. I end up ordering most of the appetizers because they are so good. Charbroiled oysters, deviled eggs and the "pies" are fantastic. This is the best Cajun food I have had outside of New Orleans -- very authentic. Laissez les bons temps rouler!
