Food was delicious and would go back when in Staten Island. Service was outstanding. Waiter could not be more accommodating and moved our table of 6 without hesitation.

Not our first and we are never disappointed. We did take a couple for the first time and they absolutely loved it. Our server Kristen was great. The food was fantastic as usual. Had a tuna tartare app special that was excellent. They recently finished their outdoor space and it came out great can’t wait till our next visit to sit out there.

Food was delicious and flavorful. Didn’t love decor but fits theme. Yard could have more festive feeling.

This is the best restaurant in Staten Island. I feel like I’ve been transported to New Orleans every time I go. The food and drinks are outstanding and the staff are friendly, knowledgeable, and provide excellent service.
