It was ridiculously noisy, the food was super salty, we were not given any utensils for the crabs or paper towels until we asked for them, my drink order was wrong, service was so so.
Helpful, caring staff. Serving good food and drinks
We had to sit at the bar, though we had reservations. It turned out OK, though.
I got a new server, Bree, she attentive, thoughtful , and kind.
Great place with a good vibe
Staff is the best, ultra caring and helpful, food is exceptional
Had the other half of the Restaurant Week selections, the Gulf Balls & Catfish Thibodaux. Once again the appetizer shined, would like to see them on the regular menu.
Good food. It was our first visit to clesis. There were 4 people in the party. The food was good. Service was just okay. Price was a little steep
I was the only one at the table who ordered the restaurant week deal, The others ordered fried shrimp of sorts. They enjoyed the way it was battered and cooked.
Overall a pleasant experience
Restaurant Week menu was a success, Boudin Stuffed Shrimp should be on the permanent menu, spectacular.
On Father's Day, we were shown to a table, given menus, and then we waited around for 25 minutes (with two wiggly and hungry kids). We saw lots of servers with "staff" shirts helping other tables, but no one came to us, not even for a drink order. We approached two different servers for assistance, and we were promised someone would come help us. The host who seated us walked by several times -- completely ignored us and avoided eye contact. No one ever came, so we left. It was really strange and disappointing, especially on Father's Day. We won't be back.
Nice ambiance, waitress, and food!
This was my third meal there in the last year. The first meal of boiled crawfish with shrimp were perfect.
The second time eating there the shrimp were overcooked and impossible to eat. Thinking that was a one off kind of night, I took my parents there this evening. Sadly, it was a repeat if the second time there- the crawfish were so overcooked that they were difficult to peel. For those prices, there are better and more consistent places out there.
Reliably good, comfort food served by a pleasant helpful staff.
Excellent service and food as always
an old reliable, trustworthy place. Staff & food are the best.
Great friendly service, reliable food, easily handicap available seating.
The boil pot was a bit over cooked and the crawfish and shrimp were difficult to peal. Additionally, I loved the outdoor dining ambiance but the bugs were difficult to deal with. For about the first 30 minutes we spent the entire time swatting bugs. We loved the outdoor option, but something should be done to address this issue.
Many of the tables are outdoors - an almost restaurant at the beach feeling. We were able to have a table indoors near the bar. Food was terrific. Prices very reasonable.
Great place. Great service!
Excellent service, great food, good music, a must do if you want crawfish.
Great other than extremely small greens in their shrimp and crawfish salad. Great grilled oysters!
Great food, very flavorful and huge crawfish! Everything was outstanding
Best Crayfish in the city
Glad to come here, the best we’ve had in NOLA so far!
Best seafood boil
Your staff is terrific, always helpful and friendly.
The place is consistent, excellent service, great food, and a friendly atmosphere, what more could Clesi's provide?
Ambrosio was excellent server, Jess is a masterful bartender, your entire staff is helpful.
We had reservations and were seated immediately on arrival. The staff was very friendly and pleasant, and we enjoyed the food we had from the Sunday Brunch menu.
Excellent experience all the way around. Great food and great service highly recommend!
Great food! We had boiled and fried seafood and it was delish!
The jambalaya is delicious, with tasso, chicken, andouille, pork and various vegetables
The food and service were outstanding. My wife and I plan to go back monthly.
This is probably my favorite crawfish in town. They have a great outdoor area that I definitely plan on spending many more weekends hanging out on.
Cool little neighborhood spot with good and friendly service but 8.99 per lb for average tasting boiled crawfish is insane when I can get them up the street for less than 3 bucks lb. I get charging a premium for dine in but 3x? I wanted to love it but most likely will not be back.
Crawfish were excellent and our sever was adorable!!! Great atmosphere and we will definitely return!
Lizzy is your best server, but your whole teem is wesome.
Everything was perfect
Best time! Gabby was the best. Thank y'all!
