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.

An above-and-beyond experience as always. The service and food were both outstanding. We went for our anniversary and enjoyed our special evening to the fullest thanks to FSR

We started with the crawfish dumplings app; very rich and creamy with SO many crawfish. My filet main course was tender and perfect. My husband’s pecan crusted red snapper special was one of the best fish dishes we’ve tasted anywhere. For dessert, the strawberry trifle was one we will be ordering again for sure... my husband doesn’t usually care for fruit desserts but we both agreed it was one of our favorite desserts we’ve ever ordered.

Will be back again soon....

First we were greeted by Felecia owner and chef. It is rare these days to be greeted by the chef let alone the owner!

We were early, Felecia directed us to the bar we had a glass of wine while we waited. Then Felecia came and got us took us to our table. Then Felecia explained the specials to us as only a chef could make them sound so delicious.

We ordered our appetizers which was the Barbecue Oysters. I have never had them anywhere else but Felecia Suzanne’s, they were delicious and my date thought so to!

We both got the red fish special it was outstanding.

Then it came time for desserts. We ordered a gelato and Sorbet. Felecia in our conversation with her learned it was our first date in 46 years. Then she sent out a strawberry parfait and a praline/chocolate cake with a scoop of vanilla ice cream that was to die for.

Felecia also came by several times to check on all the tables.

We had a lovely dinner and evening!

This place seems like it's short staffed. Showed up on time for our reservation. Two groups in front of us. Took 15 minutes to see the host. Once we did we were told a table wasn't ready yet and would be a few minutes. I noticed for tables for two in the quieter section near big windows. It would've been perfect for a date. Instead we waited an additional 5 minutes and we were seated in the back with a common both bench and multiple tables. We were wedged between another couple and a birthday party of 6. It felt mildly awkward sharing in our conversations with the other tables. Especially when I saw much better and available tables before seating, so the ambiance wasn't what it could be.

We waited an additional 10-15 minutes before the host came back and apologized for no one waiting on us yet. He did make it right by comping one round of drinks. The service the rest of the night was slow even by European standards, but very friendly.

The food was definitely delicious and very well priced.

Summary: good food, good value, slow service, bit noisy.

Dinner was totally amazing from start to finish! Our waiter, Seth, met us at the door and was one of the most attentive people we have ever met, He anticipated our needs and was there with wonderful bread. or whatever before we knew we were out! His description of the entrees was so accurate and very helpful. The service was so fast but not pushy, and we always felt like we were the most important people there. The food was incredible, starting with the salad with amazing bacon and the best fried green tomatoes ever. The lamb shanks were perfect with huge flavor and the Redfish with crab was an amazing special that was exquisitely prepared and bursting with flavor. The red and white wines were wonderful as well. The dessert of creme Brule and peppermint ice cream was the perfect end to an amazing dining experience. Seth treated us like royalty and was a big part of what made this dining experience something that we cannot wait to repeat! Thank you Felicia Suzanne's!
