Birthday Dinner! We tried a bit of everything. Shrimp and crab bisque, jambalaya for appetizers then Shrimp CreoLa and my favorite Etouffee for my main dish. Fresh, warm beignets for dessert.
CreoLa does not disappoint!!

Food was very good though some portions—the catfish—was on the small side. Service was very slow.

We were disappointed for the first ever time! Service was not good and we asked to split a salad ( which is what we always do) and they brought it in a metal bowl , for us to split with no side plates. Just disappointed as we always have loved it.

Introduced two new friends to CreoLa. As always, CreoLa didn’t disappoint. The food and cocktails - creative and delicious. The service - friendly and knowledgeable. The ambiance is great- comfortable and relaxed. Always love suggesting CreoLa for a taste of New Orleans

They were having a large party for a customer so the usual dining area was taken over by this party which meant we were seated right next to the bar & front door.

Our party of 5 enjoyed the food, the service, and the atmosphere and felt the "nawlins" vibe. We are regulars and have never had a bad experience. Thank you to Edwin and staff for another exceptional diining experience. The new addition of the Root Beer Float is definitely a keeper!!

the perfect spot for brunch with friends. a triumph! the food was excellent. in fact, everyone cleaned their plates. many in my party have not been to NOLA, and Creloa gave them a taste of what the food is like in NOLA - yum!

i am from New Jersey and whenever i am in the area, i will make sure to stop in for a bite.

The food was good but service could’ve been better. They closed the kitchen without warning and wouldn’t let our last guest order. There was no manager on duty to talk to. The waiter tried but the cooks refused. It was a disaster for our family dinner.

Custer service was great, unfortunately we had to cut our dinner short due to a toddler tantrum. We ended up taking our food to-go but they forgot to add all our meals and didn't realize until we got home. The food that was packed for us wasn't as spicy as we were told it would be. We definitely added those hot sauce packets to our food and some pepper/salt for flavoring/seasoning

This is a “go to” place for my family and I. We have our favorites like Creole Jambalaya and the Buttermilk Fried Chicken and Combo Pie for desert. Service is always friendly and a kid friendly environment. We bring friends here to celebrate events and for business.

The food here is amazing!!! Unfortunately maybe we got a night they were understaffed because the service was pretty bad. My boyfriend had to flag someone down to order drinks, food and every time we needed something along with piling our dishes at the end of table and every time someone got a new drink no one would take the old glasses. Even had to wave down someone for the check and get our own silverware for the desert. Maybe it’s because we were a party of 7 so the tip was already included not sure. We don’t complain much so we didn’t mention it and went on with our evening but everyone was bothered by the lack of service. However the food is phenomenal so we’ll be back. Hopefully with better service :)

We were greeted and seated promptly even though we were early. The food was good, with the right portion size so that we got to try several dishes. They were also reasonably priced. Service was good: non-intrusive yet there when you need anything. Overall, a very nice experience and we will be going back.

I tried the shrimp and crawfish etouffee which was just OK. The seafood was plentiful but the flavors were lacking. My sister ordered the catfish po boy, and while the fish itself was fine, the sandwich itself could have used better bread and richer flavors besides the remoulade. The beignets were good. which were my favorite part of the meal. If you're looking for a solid southern/NOLA inspired restaurant, I would recommend Brenda's French Soul Food instead. For the value and flavors, I would not return to Creola.

Did not want to do the large entrée portions so we headed to Creola which has a wonderful array of tasty appetizers. We ordered up Shrimp, Boudin Balls, TunaTacoTT, Fried Okra Splayed (new presentation of this dish, Yum), Jambalaya Appetizer, Red Bean Appetizer. This was paired with Creola’s perfectly blended Sazerac’s up. Just the right amount of food and beverage. And the service was top notch.

It was great to revisited after many months. We had a great food and service were excellent.
Now they added vegan option to the menu, that makes easy for my other friends to join us next time.
