I’ve been here several times before but this was the worst experience I’ve ever had. The server messed up a couple orders. The grits were dry and lumpy, but they’ve been creamy and amazing in the past so I expected them to be the same. We ordered bottomless mimosas but it’s hard for them to be bottomless when the server takes forever to refill them. Once we got all of the orders corrected and asked for creamier grits, everything came out tasting amazing. Then the server brought out 1 check, we asked it could be separated and that literally took him 45 mins.

Overall a good choice in French quarter if you are seeking authentic NO food. The fresh fish was excellent but a bit pricey. The desserts were terrific especially the bananas foster. Drinks were well crafted. We sat in courtyard and it was nothing too special. The big fans blowing were annoying to say the least. Overall I’d go back and would recommend.

Food is good but still need refinement.
The appetizers is okay which brings the rating down.
In general I recommend this place for dinner if you cannot think where you are going to have dinner

Our dinner there was superb. The only negative was that we did not like their bread pudding, but that is totally a matter of personal taste. We had a wonderful experience!

Lovely little restaurant tucked away on Decatur. Ate there twice on a recent trip. Once for brunch with unlimited bloody marys and again for happy hour with cocktail specials and appetizers.
The staff is very fun and attentive.
Will definitely go again next time I'm in NOLA.

I went to Evangeline's with 12 friends to celebrate my 30th birthday and it was AWESOME!!! The staff was super attentive and kind and even gave everyone in our party some birthday beads. The esthetic is just what we were looking for and the food was delicious. Overall it was the exact feel we were going for and I'm so glad we went!

It’s hard to find a bad restaurant in NOLA, but this meal stood out as our favorite over a five day stay. Crawfish and grits was perfection, with the crawfish cooked so perfectly they had none of the rubbery texture so many others do. Excellent crab cakes and fried oysters, and cocktails on point. All this plus wonderful hospitality and service, with a great soundtrack of R&B soul classics playing all evening. Didn’t really need a reservation on a quieter Wednesday night, but better safe than sorry. Street parking right around the corner - I’m sure we won’t get so lucky during a busier season!

Given all of the options in the French Quarter this is not a place I would re-visit time and again. The food was good but portions were small and I felt overpriced given quantity. The drinks were nice - definitely a nice place to have a cocktail and appetizer.

I honestly had the best meal of my life there. I had the alligator creole, it was so good and I don't normally "love" alligator. Our waiter was so nice and accommodating because my daughter is Vegan and he helped find her the perfect meal. I wish I could have revisited before I left.
On a side note, I saw a ghost in the women's restroom. Added bonus!!!!
