This restaurant had some very unique dishes to choose from, especially in desserts. They did an excellent job at making sure we were taken care of at all times. My filet was great! Cooked perfectly!

Food and service were excellent. Great selection of fresh and local seafood. My only complaint was the noise on a busy night and it was hard to hold a conversation with the people at our table.

Food was terrific...kale salad, gumbo ya-ya, and the ribeye were favorites at our table. Arrive was a bit slow and seemed overwhelmed with other guests. Perhaps short of staff that evening. Overall experience was very good.

In town for a convention and the restaurant was close to the hotel with great reviews. Started off with drinks at the bar. Vodka martini with hand stuffed blue cheese olives were perfect way to wind down from the busy day. Strawberry gimlet was also delicious. Dinner was great as well.

I thought that the prices being pretty high, meant the food would be phenomenal but it wasn't. The snapper was pretty good but the red fish was extremely overcooked. The service was not very good honestly. Server couldn't wait for us to leave and did not smile and acted like he didn't want to really be there. Like he had something to do and needed to get there

Worst meal we had in New Orleans and the most expensive even after the groupon. After our terrible food that 3 out of five didn't eat, the other two went home sick, only consolation to the three that didn't eat. Only good food was the mussels, the Distruct Tournedos, and trout almondine. Scallops were horrendous, lump crab bisque was garbage, pork porterhouse was beyond over cooked, ribeye way over cooked, and the Visiting Market whole fish terrible. Also, I ordered a drink off the specials menu...supposed to be fruity, melon, citrus...was a basic orange juice and vodka. All around biggest disappointment and an awful ending to our New Orleans trip. DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY. Too many good spots to eat.

We took a friend for the first time she loved it. She had the lam shank and felt it was the best ever, my wife had the chicken pane had enough to take some home to enjoy at a later time. I had the redfish half shell so of the best fish I ever had. All three of the deserts were outstanding and large portions. The crab bisque and crab meat Napoleon were great for starters.
Service was great and you can’t beat the owners hospitality.
It is a great place for couples dinning or groups in an enjoyable setting.
The wine list is great.
I also recommend the old fashion.

Outstanding service and great food. Being on Eastern Time, we arrived at 4:30 PM CT (5:30 PM ET), well before the evening dinner service had started, and the receptionist welcomed us as though we'd arrived at rush hour. Our waiter, Darrell, was exceptional both in attending to our needs and helping us identify our preferences. The food was also exceptional, except for the charred kale salad which was a little too chewy for my taste. It was a real treat to see the chefs preparing dinner through the glassed-in kitchen, and I think I learned some new ways of chopping vegetables. Particularly good was the Crab Napoleon appetizer - highly recommended for any crab epicures. All told, a little on the expensive side, but certainly worth it.

We love fish and so we got a whole fish called turbo. Was the most amazing taste and everyone love it.
Appetizers wasn’t impressive especially the free bee one given by the chef.
Ambience was different and a different atmosphere.
Over all a high three to a four star rating!

We Had reservations for 6:00 but arrived earlier and the host was quick to seat us. Our server was very friendly. I had the grilled fish with a crab sauce that was absolutely delicious! I also used a Groupon for half off. Perfect meal.

Greatest Gumbo! We are visiting NOLA from San Diego. We are trying seafood gumbo everyday from different restaurants. All the restaurants are known for their fabulous seafood. Briquette wins! Deep dark smoky delicious roux from someone whose family must have taught them well. Also it is served in a deep warm bowl so it stays warm to the last drop. All I can say is if your mama is too busy or was not raised with Louisiana cooking, Briquette is the place for gumbo that tastes rich and comforting. Snapper Pontchartain was amazing too. Going back for seconds. Yum!

I brought my aunt and uncle to this restaurant after a recommendation from a friend. FYI...HH is only at the bar. First course, I had the seafood gumbo. My issue was that it lacked seafood. It was mostly rice and roux. My aunt had the scallops. It was cooked well but the it was brought out cold. For my entree, I had the lamb shank. It was very tender but lacked seasoning. My aunt had the duck, which she said saved the entire meal... so that was a plus. I would try others places before going back here.

There was a fish bone in the sauce on top of my scallops.
Also — scallops don’t need a heavy sauce.
The salad was fresh
The service was good, but I was not impressed with the food
My husband had the prime rib and it was flavorless and undercooked
I was not impressed for the amount of money we spent

We chose Briquette because the original restaurant we wanted to eat at was completely booked and this one was close to our hotel. The food was OUTSTANDING, I had the Snapper Ponchatrain and loved every bit of it!!! Would definitely go back again and would definitely recommend to others!

We chose Briquette based on it being within walking distance from our hotel and the positive reviews.

The restaurant was not overly crowded, so the noise level was good.

We ordered the Chicken Panee Limone and the Snapper Pontchartrain. Both dishes were very good and tasty.

For desert we had the King Cake dessert and it was very good.

The service was attentive without being intrusive.

I would recommend Briqutte for a nice date night out.
