    Don’t book via Open table. We booked weeks before and they didn’t have our reservation. They told us they recently switched to another reservation platform and they lost all reservations booked on Open Table. No fault of Open Table. If they were making this operational change, the restaurant should have proactively called this with existing reservations. They told us they had a large party and we could walk in , wait and we might get a table.

    Delicious food and unique/inventive cocktail selection! We had popcorn shrimp & jambalaya egg roll apps. My husband raved about the shrimp /rice entree. My blackened cod was cooked perfectly- flaky and moist with just the right amount of spice. The red beans/rice and spinach were not "just sides".. We shared the Taro mudpie which was creamy and delicious ! We will be back. Good price for 3 cocktails, apps, entree and dessert!

    After two visits I'm sold on this place. My first time was for brunch with friends who suggested this place. The very open and bright restaurant is very welcoming and the staff is just as friendly. Danny the bartender is great, he made very yummy drinks and even sometimes take orders at tables not just at the bar as he came to our table and took our order all mentally no notepad. Brunch with Friends - Shrimp & Grits - Sausage & Grits - Cauliflower & waffles - Oysters - Drinks drinks drinks I decided to return and take my husband for brunch and now that they are on OpenTable we made reservations and enjoyed a nice Sunday FunDay DateDay during Mardi Gras week-end. Thé music was super good this day as I got to back that thang up with Juvenile and slow motion with him as well LoL. HusBae Sunday FunDay - crawfish bisque - Oysters - Shrimp & grits - Drinks for ME Definitely a place to check out and return too.

    The service at Krio was pretty good, but the food was sub-par for the price. All of the portions were much smaller than we expected and the mussels were very over cooked. The fried seafood baskets were mostly fries with barely any seafood (6 pieces of shrimp in one and three skinny slivers of cod that probably made up one fillet in the other). Also, they were out of almost every type of seafood and bread (!) when we arrived at 730 for our meal, so that really limited our options. It took a while for the food to come out and the restaurant only had 4 tables seated. I did enjoy the K’reaper wings, but there weren’t enough of them on the plate for me to go back to order them again.

    Food was good. Service was not good. No one checks on you after they drop the food to see what you need. I finally flagged someone down to let them know we needed syrup for the waffles and they still did not bring it.

    My parents live in Dallas. So when I come to visit them, I'm always interested to see what new places they have that I have not tried. My mom recommended Krio and I'm so glad we went. The staff was really nice and welcoming. The restaurant was clean and I thought the menu was simple with reasonable prices. I highly recommend trying the Banh Mi and Jambalaya egg rolls. Overall 10/10.
