My pecan crusted flouder had a few tiny pecan pieces and had been cooked earlier and microwaved. Horrible!!!! Cheddar potatoes were good as was the gumbo. Usually good but quite disappointing tonight. No excuse for quality tonight!

The customer service in this restaurant is as excellent as the food. We come here at least once every time we are in New Orleans. We love this restaurant! The only thing that they could add to the menu is a couple of more vegetarian options.

Phenomenal. Shrimp and grits were the best I’ve had. Not over seasoned and fresh. Grits were creamy and tasty and shrimp were fresh. I could drink the shrimp broth.

The food was good, but a little pricey. The drinks are very overpriced for a brunch menu!
The server we had forgot two of our orders and looked very out of sorts that morning.

Wasn't sure what to expect but turned out to be a great experience! I had the shrimp and grits...YUMMY!!! Hubby had the pecan crusted flounder...Not great but not terrible either. Overall, we enjoyed it very much.

We went for valentine's day and decided to partake in the set menu. There were 4 courses and we really only enjoyed 2 of them (lamb was fantastic and dessert was good but the tuna crudo was less than impressive and there was hardly any duck breast for that course). I had really high expectations for this restaurant based on reviews but was left with an "I mean it was good but the price wasn't worth it" feeling. I'm sure their other menu items are delightful though

The food was great. Bloody Mary bar was fun. Our waiter though was very short with us and pretty rude. I don’t know if he assumed we wouldn’t tip well because we were four girls in our early 20s or what but it seemed like he was a lot friendlier and more attentive to other tables around us. He basically ignored us. I’ve been to this restaurant 5 or 6 times and never had a problem before though so I’d still recommend it for the food.

Dinner was wonderful and the service was top rate. We started with cocktails at the bar, which was fun. We didn't have dessert, but only because we were so full!

Food was amazing at this unassuming restaurant in NOLAs garden district. Really interesting takes on classic creole food. Our server was great. Only downfall were the desserts. Not a lot to choose from and one was blue cheese flan! Great wine list. Would definitely recommend and come again

Came for Sunday jazz brunch, live band was great! Started off with the boulettes and cracklin rose, both delicious. We got a shrimp and grits & chicken and biscuit. I liked that they kept the head on the shrimp for extra flavor. The chicken with the gravy was good, the biscuit was a little dense but still very good. Definitely worth going and you get your bang for the buck. By far our best meal in NOLA yet

We love this restaurant, and have been many times over the years. Great unique food and flavors. Crabmeat ravioli and gumbo excellent. Shrimp and grits is one of the best versions in the city. The steak was fantastic. Frozen Chocolate mouse type dessert excellent as well. Great service from Luis. We went for dinner. This is also a fantastic brunch place. Some of the best egg dishes in the city.
