Great service from Patrick, delicious food. Very quiet ambience but also just a quiet night due to covid. Pricey but large entree portions, definitely had to take leftovers home! Creole coffee was amazing to end the night. Would definitely return.

The wait staff was very kind and timely. Atmosphere was cozy and modern. The cocktails were delicious, and the appetizers were heavenly. The main entrees and desserts were okay, not quite as up to par as the apps. Overall, would still go back!

We were really disappointed given the reviews we read. We are from New Orleans and the food didn't seem fresh and wasn't very flavorfull. 2 people got steaks, they wanted medium rare. one steak came med well, both steaks have no seasoning just alot of butter. Blackened redfish, really no flavor and not anything I would get again. My daughter said her fish had no flavor so the hollandaise helped. They did like the Crab bisque.

The waiter was really awkward and seemed distracted.

I wouldn't go back. We don't mind paying alot of money for food that is delicious, but to pay what paid for these meals, and it was nothing special.

I ordered the scallops they were a bit rubbery and burned, but the Grits on the bottom were awesome,we also got the salmon dish with the crab it was great,my husband got the chicken pasta it was okay but chicken was extremely greasy. Our reservation was for 7:30 they close at 9 I felt like I was being rushed the whole time. I will really come early for better service because all the chefs were sitting at the bar, I had to ask about dessert the waitress talk to the older Caucasian couple almost the whole night they gave us a printed menu because of the covid, the words were very small. Overall really nothing special so I wouldn't waste my time going there again. Also there were only four diners including me and my husband so you would think service would be incredible 🤔

At first we were little hesitant to go because of the Covid pandemia but immediately they made us feel comfortable. There was appropriate social distancing and all the staff were wearing masks. We have a wonderful meal consisting of crab bisque, halibut and my wife had a steak. All of them superior. For dessert the floating island is like a dream for your taste buds. Strongly recommend.

My husband and I chose this restaurant for our anniversary dinner, primarily due to the seafood focused menu that included several types of fresh fish prepared in a variety of ways other than fried, which is rare in south Louisiana, in addition to having a nice balance of fresh salads and veggies. Having said that, there are several options for meat-lovers as well, including lamb and steak options. The extensive wine and spirits menu was also excellent. Our waiter was superb and the manager also stopped by to greet us. This elegant spot is certainly worth checking out, and we look forward to returning soon.

Very pleased with the entire experience. Our server was excellent and very attentive. The food was phenomenal. To start, we had the Oysters Bienville Casserole which was awesome. We also shared the salmon salad. For our entrees, my husband had the snapper and I had the lamb. Both were very good. I will definitely return!

Underwhelmed. There were less than half the COVID open tables occupied but service still struggled. We sat near the kitchen window and saw several bowls of soup waiting to be served to a large table behind us for well over 10 minutes.
Scallops on Goat Cheese Grits Cake was the highlight of the meal. Oysters Rockefeller was served in an overabundance of gloppy creamed spinach. Main course of tenderloin medallions and scallops were overcooked and swimming in butter making almost inedible.
When we decided against dessert, since there were no gluten free options, the waiter did not even ask if we wanted an after dinner drink or coffee and just brought the check.
Definitely not worth the $200 bill for the two of us.
