    Really great food and drinks! And you get to listen to great jazz? Can't beat this place. The service is fantastic. The servings are large and the bread pudding is to die for.

    Save your money & go elsewhere First started with the host pushing us aside to the bar area and promptly seating walk-in customers, mind you I had a reservation through open table Second, our server was either new, overwhelmed, not the brightest bulb or a combination of all. Walked up to the table put barely half full waters in front of us and promptly said “what ya all having?” No greeting, no mention of the bar or would we like to start with a drink or an appetizer. Just “what will you have “! Then messed up the order after repeating it back to us Third, total disappearance of our server for a good 15-20 minutes. Had to ask someone else for our bill

    We arrived for our reservation (on time), and after ordering one drink and waters, we were told that due to an issue in the kitchen they wouldn’t be able to serve any food for at least an hour. We decided to take our drink to go (since they had already made it)and try another option because we had reservations for a show later that evening as well. Upon paying for the drink at the bar on our way out, the waitress proceeded to take her percentage tip from the change before giving it back. They then marked us as a no show for our reservation on the app.

    The reservation part was wonderful. Got sat as soon as we arrived. The service was not good at all. Waited 15 minutes to get water and no drinks that we ordered. Had to ask for our tea 3 times. No straws had to ask 4 times and then only brought two of the three. Food was average not stellar for how the restaurant is hyped up to be. Waitress was just on top of her game. She wasn’t rude at all just not very service oriented.

    Great food, our server was super nice and attentive. They were out of a few things but had plenty to offer. The love band right outside was loud enough to enjoy but it was still easy to carry on conversation where we sat. Prices were great, especially compared to the average sit downs in the area.

    Very slow service maybe due to staffing issues, food was average and nothing special. Our starters came before our drinks and our mains came before our cutlery. Nachos were good to start but a lot for only 2 people. It was a real shame as there was no music in the restaurant area just the blaring music from the other events in the other rooms. The highlight was the music band in the voodoo garden which was free and on til half 8, we hurried our dinner so we could sit in there for a beer and to listen to the live music. Not worth doing in my opinion…

    Food was AMAZING! We had a crew of 8 and each person rated their meal a 10/10. Highly recommend the pulled pork nachos. The grilled chicken sandwich was also bomb. You don’t want to pass this place up. Cool atmosphere.

    The atmosphere is very neat and jazz oriented. The food not so great. It tastes like "chain food". They were out of many items including wings and po boys. I wouldn't go back here to eat. There are many better options in NOLA. Our waitress was sweet.

    Although the restaurant was clean, they obviously did not have enough staff to handle a modest crowd. It took 45 minutes to get our food. When it arrived, it was barely warm. The server removed a few of the items from the bill for our inconvenience. The food tasted good, so it was a letdown that it didn't come out on time. Not on my list to revisit.
