Excellent restaurant. Service was great and the food was just really outstanding. The lights were a little low making it very very difficult to read the check and the print on the bill was very very small and gray, NOT JET BLACK. That would make it easier to read the bill. Thank goodness my phone has a flashlight on it!!!

Waited 20 minutes to have a server come after having to get up and tell the hostess two other tables were seen before ours
There was an apology from the hostess but really with that amount of delay the manager should have come over with an apology and perhaps even an appetizer on the house.
We ordered a bottle of wine and it was not in stock so two other bottles were suggested to us. The server left so we could decide and again we waited way to long to have her come back to see what we decided
If we hadn’t already ordered food I think at this point we were ready to just leave.
The beet salad was very bland. I needed some acid. It was almost dry.
My friends pork was good however the veggies alongside seemed like the exact same as what I got on my fish dish which were super salty and seemingly just sweet potatoes and one or two random squash pieces. My snapper was cooked well but again very salty and the spinach purée (which was described to be creamed spinach when advertised) was lacking any flavor.
Very disappointing date night spot

Ate our Thanksgiving meal here from a prix fixe menu. Very glad for vax check at door. Food was very good and our server was outstanding. We were 3 and each had a different entree, all agreed very good. A bit noisy as lots of hard surfaces.

Thanksgiving dinner was fixed menu. The appetizers (corn bisque and mac and cheese) were just OK. The salad, main courses (drunken hen and braised beef) and desserts were really good. Service was attentive and friendly. The restaurant is a bit too loud for me, but I plan to be back. I enjoyed my visit.

Excellent experience! Staff was very accommodating of our changing number of guests and the fact that we were running very late. We were seated right away, and in spite of the late hour every server was upbeat, friendly and attentive. The food was varied and delicious, and the location on Magazine Street perfect. We will add this to our list of "do-over" restaurants when we come to visit our son at Tulane for the next 4 years!

So charming and romantic. Our waiter Blaise was lovely and helpful with menu. We started with a delicious plate of 3 cheeses with a cranberry chutney, house made pickles, and candied peacans. We then had the kale salad, light and sweet. My friend ordered the carrot soup and loved it. We then had the fried green tomato’s and pumpkin gnocchi ( perfect for Fall). Definitely will go back and recommend.

Second visit; first in a long time. Service was excellent as usual. Kale salad too big. Salmon was excellent. Pork chop was very good but a little more fat than I care for. Craft cocktails intriguing.

We dined in the weeks following Ida and were a little disappointed that they were on a very limited menu. But I must say, for a menu that I wasn't quite as excited about, we left raving about all of our dishes and drinks. Everything we had was beautifully plated and delicious. The drinks were equally so and very well-balanced. Our server provided impeccable service and, although it was probably a slower night for them, he never made us feel rushed. We will certainly be back.
