            The pricing indicates 17 meat offerings with sides and salad bar. We were offered 7 or 8 meats, which included just one fish (shrimp) and grilled pineapple. The food was delicious. The service was just okay. But not horrible. My issue is with the value, it just wasn’t there. I could have had at least as good a meal at Oak or Halls for less money and would have been able to take leftovers home.

            I'M USED TO THE CHAIN FRANCHISEES. SO I WASN'T SURE WHAT TO EXPECT. WE WERE BRILLIANTLY SATISFIED. FOR NOT HAVING A HANDBOOK PROTOCOL THAT THE CHAIN HEADQUARTERS SENDS OUT, THIS PLACE DOES AN INCREDIBLE JOB OF SERVICE, VARIETY, AND A WONDERFUL SALAD SELECTION. IF YOU WANT A BREAK FROM THE EXPECTED SOUTHERN LOUISIANA FEEL, THIS IS A NICE ALTERNATIVE.

            Excellent service. Outstanding quality-both the salad bar, and the meat offerings. Wonderful, classy music. Table layout conducive to conversation, good ambiance. Attentive hosting. Would come again! One thing I wish I could change: $14 for a caipirinha feels crazy expensive for a drink that costs $1 to make at home.

            We ordered the 17 meat service and it was excellent, but felt the servers came around too quickly at first, then a little slowly toward the end. Paolo was definitely the best server!

            Food was great and abundant but it's the first time I've paid $54 for a salad bar. My husband opted for all the meat on the skewer offerings and I asked to skip that and just enjoy the plentiful salad bar that had a nice selection of vegetables as well as a few cheeses. Didn't think I'd be charged the same as him. Live and learn. Overall it was a nice evening albeit pricey.

            The restaurant was extremely noisy which was exacerbated by a large birthday party gathering for a 7 year old placed in the middle of the dining room. Although the servers (with the meat) were plentiful and our plates were never left empty, it was difficult to find anyone to take a drink order or refill our water glasses. This steak house is not The Oak Room, it is not The Palm, it is not even Ruth’s Chris steakhouse - it is mardi gras unleashed. The price was just not worth the experience or the food quality.
