                        Our server Jeff was fantastic! Very attentive and had great recommendations for food and wine to pair. The RedFish on a Half Shell was delicious. It was well worth the long walk from our hotel to the restaurant. My friend got the Chicken Pancee Limone and that was also delicious.

                        We eat at Briquette when we travel to New Orleans twice a year. This is the first time we were disappointed with our meal. My husband could barely eat his rib eye because it was so tough.

                        For the second time our service was pretty bad. Waited 20 mins for a bottle sparkling water and had to remove d the waiter twice. We ordered chicken and sausage gumbo and the waiter brought seafood gumbo. My husband is allergic to shellfish! Same bad service different day..

                        We got there at 6 and it was kinda slow but 30 minutes later it was full and hopping. You can see in the kitchen and watch them cook while you drink and eat. The food was amazing and the service outstanding. James was our server and he was very knowledgeable and patient with us and we stayed for desert and espresso martinis. I would definitely put this place on the top of the list.

                        My husband and I caught up with some close friends visiting from Austin. Everyone enjoyed each dish. This restaurant has lots of seafood options that are delicious! Great wine menu & cocktail list. The table shared appetizers crab napoleon, mussels, & scallops, very tasty. I had the whole snapper, potatoes, & slaw, had left overs. I was stuffed after this amazing meal. Decor is nice, open kitchen concept(kitchen is closed in with thick glass to block out kitchen noise). You can dress casual, nice casual, or business. Located near NOLA convention center. I would definitely eat here again.

                        Service and food were both great! Blackened redfish was delicious! Ate every bite! Only observation was the glasses that were preset on the tables were spotty, even had leftover residue on them. Other than that, would come back!

                        waitstaff was unsure about the specials. Had to place another order when they tried to put the first order into the kitchen. Saving grace was that it was a much better fish. Overall good though…great cocktails.

                        The appetizers were very good and overall the food is good but on 2 of the main courses the sides that came with the plates were Brussel sprouts smothered in Dijon and overcooked and fingerling potatoes that were unseasoned and dry. Brussel sprouts should be roasted and seasoned and it left a messy plate as did the potato pancake on the filet mignon. It’s very pricey but a nice atmosphere.

                        As with many good restaurants in New Orleans, the menu uses to much bacon and pork products. They were very accommodating our requests for changes.

                        Hoping for the best in going out to eat on Saturday night during Jazzfest, we were pleasantly surprised at how good Briquette was in everyway - food, service and ambiance. There were four of us and we all enjoyed our dishes of salmon, lamb shank, filet/scallops and chicken marsala, after starting with Tuna poke and a seafood bisque. Nice portions so we had some wonderful leftovers the next day!

                        Food decent. Place is too big for the prices they charge. Looks like a cafeteria. Menu and silverware were dirty. Great martini and great mussels. Good for a noisy crowd but not intimate date

                        Enjoyed our dinner at Briquette. Red fish was cooked to perfection. Pork porterhouse was huge, but delicious. Scallop appetizer is a must. Well trained and helpful server. Loved watching the kitchen work their magic, but saw service starting to back up as food sat for larger parties quite a long time. Smaller portions at a lower price point would have been welcomed.

                        We visit New Orleans a couple of times a year and we always make sure that one of our meals is at Briquette. Food is delicious, consistent and service is impeccable. We would definitely recommend to anyone staying near the French quarter, business district or convention center. Located just a couple of blocks outside the French quarter, it’s easy to walk to. Patrick was our server and he definitely knows how to take care of a good size group

                        Good was great…steak, pork chop, redfish and crab appetizer. They need more staff and service took forever. Hopefully they can get more people on board. The restaurant is extremely loud…

                        We had a hard job choosing our entrées and so came back the next day to get our second choice. Excellent food. The only issue on the 2nd night was the timing. Appetisers came before cocktails.

                        Worked great for our party of 9. Food was good, so were drinks. Place was very busy and loud. Service was a tad slow, but it was super busy. All of our orders were correct and waiter was friendly. I greatly appreciated being able to make a reservation online.

                        The restaurant seemed understaffed. Service was slow even though the place was half empty. Appetizers were good but the entrees could have benefited from some subtlety. Pork porterhouse was smothered in an overwhelming amount to f Bleu cheese and similar happened with the berry sauce on the duck.

He is such a kind gentlemen and we appreciated the way he composes himself; so gentle and very confident. We hope to always have Jeff as our waiter when we return! Thank you Jeff!!

                        The food here is terrific. My girlfriend and I had the mussels to start and we both said they were the best we’d ever had. Love the cream sauce. The bisque was good but not great. I probably wouldn’t order that again. We both got the blue cheese encrusted pork chop and it was amazing. What kills it for this restaurant is the service. The hostess was not at the front to greet us. We had no idea for the first five minutes we were there where we could check in for our reservation. We went to the bar and the bartender pointed out an empty host stand. The waiter was terrible. He took almost ten minutes to greet us. It took 40 minutes before we soda delivered to the table. When my girlfriend asked if it was diet, the waiter yelled at her, “I said it’s diet!” I actually saw the lady at the next table jump when he yelled. Absolutely insane. We had the mussels before our drinks. The bisque which we ordered as an appetizer had to be reordered and came out with the entrées. No steak knives to cut the pork chops. It went on and on. Poor service can ruin the experience and this definitely did. Despite the great food, I can’t recommend this place. The service is that bad.
