A very pleasant experience with great atmosphere and service. Our water glasses were never empty. Dirty plates disappeared quickly. The food was hot and delicious. Highly recommend the redfish and Sunday Sugo followed by the bread pudding. Yum.

My wife ordered the pecan crusted redfish and I ordered the shrimp and grits. We split a side of fried green tomatoes. She had a glass of Riesling and I had the Mint Julip. The redfish was cooked very well and balanced well with the asparagus and crab. The shrimp were cooked just right and the grits were a good balance of creamy but with some bite in the grits. The sausage was prevalent, but not overwhelming. The shrimp and grits comes either as an order of 6 or 10 shrimp. I elected for the 10, but technically only received 8. I was pretty stuffed after the 8 provided so I didn't pursue it. I'd order both dishes again. The tomatoes were good, but nothing extraordinary. I wouldn't recommend against them, but Id look into a different side if we go back. Riesling is riesling. I typically go for an old fashioned, but the mint julep came recommended so I went for it. The mint julep was very good and came in a chilled metal cup. It uses mint syrup instead of mint and simple syrup so it was a bit sweet even for a mint julep. For the price, it was a hair small. Maybe an 8-9 dollar cocktail, not 12. Dessert was the praline cheesecake tart. It was good, but still doesnt beat the strudel at Flight. The praline, whipped cream, and cheesecake balanced well to where it wasnt too sweet, but also not bland. The crust was just right. Not sure how best to describe a tart crust, but it was good enough that it was the first thing I noticed when eating it.

The service was good. Our server was attentive without being obtrusive which is tough considering how much of a water guzzler I am. The aesthetic was...different. It looked intentionally shabby chic, but then the floors had areas where something was clearly bolted down previously and just sealed over instead of replacing the tile. Doesn't really affect my opinion of the place, just an interesting choice for the caliber of everything else in the restaurant. Overall, I'd definitely go back and definitely recommend it.

As always, Felecia Suzanne's was fantastic! The wait staff was very attentive, the restaurant was clean and pristine. The food was amazing, I am craving the red fish again, already! The beef tenderloin was so soft it was like melted butter. The old fashioned was made to perfection. We thoroughly enjoyed, although barely had room for, the coconut bread pudding and espresso creme brulee. All around, an outstanding visit and another reason to keep going back.

They prepare beautiful and delicious dishes with quality ingredients that caters to all of our dining needs. Our server, Zach, was also fantastic.

Was in Memphis on business and the menu intrigued me. Overall it was a perfect choice. Great ambiance, outstanding service and delicious food. Very impressed with the service and completely satisfied. The shrimp and grits were amazing as was my colleague’s salmon. The oyster appetizer was also outstanding.
The chef was out on the floor and obviously cares about her restaurant and the food she serves. Again, very impressed.
I’ll certainly be back when in Memphis again

Overall, we had a good experience. The deviled eggs we had as an appetizer were excellent. Two of our three entrees were outstanding, but the third entree fell short of expectations because about 20% of our piece of redfish consisted of dark, purplish-gray meat which, in my opinion, is repulsive. I expect better from a restaurant of Felicia Suzanne’s stature. The three of us shared a warm bread pudding with praline sauce that was excellent. Our primary server fell a little short of expectations, but a utility server did a good job of covering for her.

Thank you for dining with us on Friday. Please give me a call at 901-523-0877. I would love to speak with you about your experience. Did you let anyone know about the Redfish? I take pride in the quality of our fish and it sounds like we had a portion that was not acceptable. I would had gladly remade that dish or gotten you something else. I look forward to speaking with you so I can improve our service to our guests. Felicia

We went for lunch and once again were treated to an outstanding meal. The crab crepes in a beurre blanc sauce are incredible, not to be missed. One diner had the catfish served over hoppin’ john and another the bbq shrimp. The shrimp were different from the classic NOLA dish, but excellent. We highly recommend!!

Service and menu was great. Taste was very good and staff we're all very courteous and attentive. We had the Gulf Fish and Lamb Osso Bucco for our entrees, both of which were great. The lamb was tender and flavorful without being too "gamey." The fish tasted very fresh. Wine list was expansive without being overwhelming and cocktail menu offered a lot of everything.

Had a great dinner before a show at the Orpheum. There were a couple events downtown that evening, so they were busy, but we were able to get a reservation. One table of about 12-15 women was pretty loud and you do sit very close to the next table if they sit you along the wall, so this may not be the place if you want to have intimate conversations.

I had the salmon and my friend had the gulf fish. Both were excellent. The cauliflower, green pepper, and greens etoufee that came with my salmon was delicious.

Nice location if you’re doing something downtown. We strolled to the Orpheum after and it took no time at all and wasn’t a taxing walk.

We had one of the best experiences here the other night. It was our anniversary and the food and service were excellent. We started out with the small portion of the fried green tomato salad and the ricotta dumplings, which were delicious. For entrees we chose the Triple Tail Gulf Fish and the Lamb Shank... Slap me!! It was so so amazing and we paired it with the Duckhorn Canvasback, which we were both doing back flips over! The Espresso Creme Brulee is awesome! We were actually able to speak with Mrs. Felicia that night about random stuff with the interior and she was super sweet! We will be back!

Sit in back room- lovely. Great waitstaff, warm, friendly helpful but professional. All staff worked as a team. Specials were just wonderful. Food carefully prepared and artfully/carefully plated. Fried oyster salad really good. Fresh fish dish was great, topped with crabmeat snd split for us in kitchen. Only complaint- fish portion was small for the PRICE, maybe because we are from Florida and used to more generous portions. Wide ranging wine list. Overall , a terrific place.
