Paid for food we didn’t get. Took dessert to go and didn’t get one of the servings. Drinks were very sour and not as described Green bean side never made it to the table. Oysters were fried to a crisp. Don’t recommend!!

The best service in the city, Tessa was a true professional. The food was outstanding starting with the oysters and ending with the best chocolate bread pudding. Pork chop was to die for. Wish we found it in our first night rather than the last.

We shared the alligator creole appetizer and it came out with a dipping sauce that was very good. My husband had the New York Strip and it was outstanding. It came out on a cast iron pan sizzling hot and cooked perfectly. I had the Crawfish and Seafood Cake Pasta Monica. Delicious! For dessert we shared the Bananas Foster Bread Pudding. Perfect end of a meal. It was served with vanilla ice cream and topped with candied almonds. The sweetness of the bananas foster was perfect balanced with the creamy ice cream and the crunchy candied almonds slices. We also enjoyed a specialty cocktail recommended by the wait staff. Excellent ! Portions on everything were generous. Excellent service. Thoroughly enjoyed the entire meal.

We had eaten here before and were anxious to return. Outstanding service from Tori! Great suggestions on food choices. I had the salmon and it was delicious. Also enjoyed the Fried green tomato salad. Great gumbo! Very interesting green bean side with Bloody Mary juice to give it flavor. James, the manager was welcoming and made sure everything was too our liking. Casual but nice atmosphere and easy walk from our Omni hotel.

Pretty disappointing. Slow service. And less than average food. Only the alligator was flavorful. The pork chop was flavorless and was oddly hot. It was actually still streaming after it was eaten (hmmm). Fried oysters were soggy and were simply tossed back into the oil to crisp them up, so they were soggy then oily. There were good reviews on the gumbo but that too was a disappointment.

For the price point, there are many better options. If you couldn’t compare this place to other places in NOLA, we’d still be disappointed.

Lastly, I suppose when a restaurant requires your full order upfront, then that is a warning sign that even they know the issues. (It was not fine dining to require that).

Was very disappointed. Food was brought out cold, food overpriced (8 dollars for a side of red beans), took over an hour to get our food while there were only three other guests in the restaurant, and the waitress wasn't knowledgeable or attentive. Waste of a good Saturday evening. Ended up getting sushi to go next door because everyone was so underwhelmed with their order.

Was greeted with a warm welcome by hostess and server but that is the extent. The service was significantly poor due to length of time from placing drink order( which the bartender got wrong) and food orders to receiving the meal. When we did receive the food after an hour plus wait it was cold. The restaurant was not crowded so unsure as to why the wait was so long.

They changed the recipe to the charbroiled oysters and they were awful. They used to be the best in the city. These were barely broiled and completely lacked flavor. The service was not great, extremely slow, although the server was new. But drinks were forgotten, orders not put in, etc. The other food was ok, not bad, but not memorable enough to return, and not for that price point. Drinks were good, would recommend the cocktails. Overall, disappointed.

We really enjoyed our evening! We ordered the alligator appetizer, the 10 oz filet, and the seafood platter and all were delicious! Our drinks were perfect and the bread pudding/chocolate cake desserts were amazing! They even brought out a complimentary arancini that was seafood stuffed and should be on their menu because it was that good. Service was great as well!!! My 4 year old loved the red beans and rice that was on their sides menu ❤️

COVID service issues affect every restaurant now so service was not rated the highest but all were pleasant and tried to be helpful. The menu has changed - it appeared that the restaurant was going in a new direction, which was unfortunate. The oysters bienville and rockefeller were disappointing - mushy and tasteless. Served with bread that was so stale - even the mushy sauce did not soften it. Our go to gumbo there was disappointing as well. Such a shame - loved this place and hope it will do well - but it won’t with this food.
