Briquette was absolutely amazing. Our waiter Timmy was phenomenal and the food was the best we had during our entire vacation. We will definitely go back when we come to NOLA on vacation again!!

Great food! Very clean, nice ambiance. Had a little trouble redeeming a groupon, so be careful with those. Everything else was excellent.

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!

Once again, great meal and great experience! We had family and friends in town and Briquette was a wonderful choice for them since the menu covers many choices.
Darell, the really terrific server, was serving our table and once again, he was wonderful!! Had everyone’s order delivered perfectly and with such a friendly manor that we had a SUPER time!!

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.

Let me start by saying I do not care for fish at all but with us visiting New Orleans I wanted to try all of what the city had to offer. I ordered the blackened red fish and when I tell you it was phenomenal I truly mean it, the fish did not even taste like fish, I mean wow! My waitress was new but I wouldn’t have been able to tell because she was so attentive and professional in addition my order was place correctly and arrived quickly. The building was exquisite and the bar looked inviting. I recommend this restaurant to everyone!

We vacationed in the New Orleans area for the first time ever from Mid-Missouri. Briquette was chosen based on their offering of a voucher on Groupon, and the restaurant's ratings. I am so glad they chose to advertise on Groupon because the experience we had was amazing.

We were a table of four guests dining and we all ordered something different from the appetizer, main course, and dessert menu. Each of our meals was well cooked, well seasoned, and plated beautifully. The food was excellent and the service we received from our server, Darrell, was topnotch. He seriously made the experience for us. He was knowledgeable about the menu, wine pairings, even the history of the building, and had great recommendations.

If you are looking for a "casual classy" (upscale but definitely not pretentious) restaurant with great happy hour specials and delicious food, I highly recommend Briquette.

The food at this visit was just super!! The pork chop and the salmon were perfectly cooked and the flavors were outstanding. We tried the appetizer special was a crab cheesecake that was light and so good!!
Our server,Darrel, was great fun and VERY knowledgeable about the menu and the wines.
The noise level is high even though they have tried to dampen it with ceiling panels. Never the less, the atmosphere and the food trump any noise level shortcomings.
We had a throughly delightful evening with friends

This was our 5th or 6th visit here. We had a Groupon & I noted thAt when I made the reservation via Open Table. We were seated at a nice table & actually had a wait person who we had as a trainee a couple of weeks earlier. I ordered the restaurant week menu & my husband ordered the fried catfish which he usually gets. When the bill came & I informed the server that we had a Groupon she said that he Gropius wasn’t accepted for the restaurant week menu. Why wasn’t I informed of this when I ordered? Clearly it was muted on the reservation that I had a Groupon. We paid the bill without the Groupon. Upon leaving, I asked to speak wit the owner, Anthony Tusa but was told he wasn’t there but his wife Anna was. I explained to her what happened and her response was “sorry”. Completely unacceptable. I dud my part by informing the establishment that I had a Groupon when I made the reservation. I’d like to know how I wad supposed to know that the Groupon would not be accepted for the restaurant week menu???? The waiter did not inform me when i ordered that the Groupon would not be accepted for the restaurant week menu yet my reservation clearly stated i had a Groupon. Completely unacceptable especially for a local resident report customer. I’ll have to rethink dining here in hue future. Apparently Briquette doesn’t need or want my future business.

Lesley, Thank you for your feedback. Groupon is actually a coupon purchased for dining. You purchased $60.00 worth of food and beverage for $35.00, and Restaurant Week is a discounted menu for three courses at $39.00. The Groupon coupon can not be combined with any other discounts such as Happy Hour. Restaurant Week Menu is a discount, and can not be combined with a Groupon. The Groupon states these stipulations. Sorry for the position you have taken. We hope to see you again.

Every time I visit New Orleans I look for deals on Groupon. Luckily Briquette was offering a Groupon during my visit and I’m so glad I purchase it. For starters, I had the creole gumbo and my husband had the lump crab bisque. They were both really delicious but the gumbo was by far the best I had while visiting New Orleans. I also had the blackened redfish and I really enjoyed it! My husband had the snapper Pontchartrain and he loved it. Our waitress Rachel was really sweet and helpful with food and drinks suggestions. We will be returning!

It was our 1st time going and the first restaurant after getting off plane. We enjoyed ourselves and the food was delicious. My pasta had a good flavor. Need more veggies on the menu. Also, the chair are hard and we were hoping the place had booth orncushioned seats. However, the decor and art work was nice. We will definitely be back again when we are visiting New Orleans.
