    Nice food and service. Flavor and presentation on spot. Thanks to our server and shift manager for accommodating our big group and helping us with the multiple tabs. It is important to understand conference assistants are under companies expense policies and individual checks are a need to get those expensed honored.

    ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Amazing service, apps, salads, menu selection, EVERYTHING! New fav foodie spot in NOLA. Definitely next level in every way. Birthday boy wanted bread pudding (his fav) for dessert. Have you ever had it rolled into balls, fried with a crispy crust and soft flavorful inside, dusted with powdered sugar and served with coffee for dipping? Then you’ve never really had it.

    Absolutely love the food, the ambience and the staff. Our bartender Timmy was second to none. We absolutely adored him. Only comment would be. They have these little side plates that are very annoying. Our forks kept falling off them and I didn’t want my forks sitting on the bare table, other than that loved love love this place

    We dined here on our last night in New Orlean’s and it was very good! The scallop appetizer was fantastic but not to be out done by the whole Bronzino which was so delicious. We finished with the floating island dessert which was unlike anything we had had before. It was the perfect light sweet treat to wrap up the meal. All around, it was a great dinner!

    The food was excellent. The service was fair. They need more people. Tables should never have to wait for drinks, and we constantly ran empty. Mainly because the wait staff was having to do too much. I can't say enough about the food though.

    Over all disappointing. It was in not fault due to our server who was great. Kevin worked very hard to get us what we needed. They sat 4 tables for him at the same time as our party of 12. Was 2 hours before we got or meal an hour after our apps. I did not have the heart to tell or server that my fish was way undercooked. I had really hoped for better

    The host was super nice, wished my husband a very happy 60TH birthday & said Damon would be right over, he wasn't. We were ready to take off when he finally came by. We said "hi, we were about to get up & go". He seemed put off by that & said they were slammed out of no where. Looked more like he was in the weeds & overwhelmed. He said was dropping something off & bringing water. He poured water & was ready to take off for a drink menu & we said we knew what we wanted. He took the drink order, said he'd bring bread & be right back. In the meantime he's running all around, finally brings the bread & runs off to get drinks, wtf? Organize my man.....My husband thought his drink was overly sweet but said nothing thinking it wasn't real sprite, it was, but we found out later it wasn't Captain Morgan, they just decided to give him Bayou Spice without even asking. Good thing the bread was served in a bag, the plate it was on was dirty. The scallops were awesome but the goat cheese grit cakes had zero flavor, couldn't tell there was any cheese & no seasoning at all. Don't use the salt grinders, the salt comes out the size of boulders. The entrees come out, he says he's going to grab more bread for us, we never saw that, comes back & asks "is everything satisfying", did he want an honest answer? My husband asked for another side of tartar for his catfish which he said was excellent) he brings a soup bowl full, sarcasm? Being from New York I know sarcasm, and it was. My chicken was very good but the lemon caper sauce on the pasta had a funky aftertaste. My husband asked for a box & the check. You normally take the dirty plates right now, nope. It was sweet that they gave him a chocolate torte for his birthday, but since we didn't have our jackets on, hadn't paid yet & didn't act like there was a rush you'd think he would have brought it on a plate or asked if we wanted it boxed to go. So no birthday picture there. 43 years in this business I can honestly say, never again.

    I really like their wine list. It’s reasonably deep but is laid out in a way that’s easy to understand for someone new to wine. The food is good and competently prepared. The atmosphere is very nice but it’s also very loud. Our server did a fine job and was professional.

    Nice looking restaurant with good atmosphere. We had a party of 8. Food was tasty but every dish came out lukewarm, soup and main dish included for the entire table ( the only hot meal was the one the waitress forgot to order, so it was made quickly and came out hot.

    Did you ever go to a restaurant and overhear the other servers around you giving great service and you got stuck with the dud? Our server “never gave her name” started out the meal by hustling us for bottled water when tap was an option. Haven’t had that happen for 20 years! Had to ask about daily specials/soup, always a red flag. One entree, “I’ve never had it but people seem to like it “. SMH Seems like a nice wine list with well curated selections thoughtfully described on the menu. Asked for Chardonnay and before I could describe which one she was back with a glass. “Which Chardonnay did you bring me?”. “I don’t know most people just order red or white”. WTF? Food was just okay. Salad was mostly dressing no greens. Halibut and Snapper well cooked with portions big enough for two which was reflected in the high price point. Would have been nice to know that with better guidance from our server but left with the impression she was more interested in soaking the tourists. To the famous tv star seated next to us, I hope she gave you better service!

    First, hats off to our fantastic server, Rich. He was helpful, engaging, and charming. The food was very tasty, with a special nod to the scallops served on a grits cake. We dined, staying there for almost three hours, and the time went by all too quickly. The gumbo was excellent, though my wife wished the gumbo had been a little warmer. Finished things off with top-shelf beignets. This was our second time there, and we'll definitely go back.

    One of the best meals that we’ve had in NOLA. The menu is extensive with fabulous seafood dishes from halibut, snapper, red fish to salmon ALL were delicious and cooked to perfection. The scallop, grit cake app and crabmeat napoleon appetizer were spot on! We had the pleasure of meeting the owner, Mr Tusa, who graciously gave us a tour of the kitchen. The ambiance and service were top notch. We look forward to returning and having another fabulous meal! You will not be disappointed if you choose this dining gem.

    i rarely give 5 stars. This deserves 5 ! food was absolutely perfect. Our servers, Will's, recommendations were perfect. The restaurant is a bit more expensive than others, so expect to pay a bit more. I highly recommend the scallop appetizer. I have rarely tasted scallops cooked so perfectly. the Ahi tuna seaweed salad was well done, but I'm not a sushi conessuier. Scallops were seared quickly and melted in your mouth. We tasted each others dishes. The pork with blue cheese encrusted coating made a perfect barrier to moisture loss and tasted fantastic. even if you don't like blue cheese, try this. It works. I had the lamb shank in a Sicilian sauce with olives and angel hair pasta. the angel hair was cooked perfect typically its over cooked, not here. all the flavor blends were perfect. Desert ... I recommend the floating island and the chocolate creme brule. these were decadent and well worth the experience

    Wonderful experience and great food. We both had the whole red snapper, one fried and the other grilled. Both were deliciously seasoned and perfectly cooked. The service was really good. Johanna made excellent recommendations and was very attentive.
