Cocktails were so fun and amazing. There were 5 different cocktails at our table and they were all delicious. The server did a great job making recommendations based on what we liked.

The food was super good. Chargrilled oysters were fantastic. We got the crawfish boil with the sauce that combines all of their sauces and it was so yummy. Pro tip- order some hush puppies to dip into the sauce. The okra was also fantastic.

Highly recommend for lunch/dinner, hang out with friends, cocktails, causal but cool food.

The food is all good and authentic! Try the Jambalaya Eggrolls, nice flavor. The staff was super nice and told us the story of how the restaurant came to Bishop Arts. We lived in Asia and miss the food we had there. This place gave us a taste of what we have been missing. The atmosphere is nice and they have patio seating. We will be back!

Service staff could use more training. Our server didn’t seem to know the basics. The mussels came out cold, sent them back & the 2nd order came out nice & hot.

The food was amazing, the mix of indigenous flavors in both Asian & Cajun influence resonated in every dish we tried! We ordered more bread to dip into the amazing juice from the shrimp boil! Desserts were incredible too!

Excellent cocktails. Very friendly although on the smaller side, but I didn't feel heavy after. Can't wait to come back. Only real criticism is I think outside could evolve into having a cozier vibe — maybe some more plants and hanging lighting? It's a nice space, but little details would make this great place even better.

Great place for amazing C’Asian food and fabulous cocktails. We had the crawfish boil with Krio seasoning and clams with their special sauce. Glad we tried two types of sauce. Both were great. Seafood was fresh and all the sides we ordered to accompany hit the spot as well. Can’t fault anything, we’ll be back!!

Overall very good. Couple things I would have changed would be to lower the music way down. It was mother's day and we couldn't eat inside it was so loud, and not a whole lot better outside. I would also liked to have known the full menu was available and not just the brunch. Having said that the service was extraordinary, food was excellent and we would likely go back.

Krio seems like a confused restaurant that doesn’t know it’s identity. Not quite fine dining although priced like it and our waiter was in a novelty pirate costume. The charbroiled oysters uses process cheese that doesn’t even melt. Would definitely not recommend to anyone as we were terribly underwhelmed for our date night.

We made a reservation for outdoor dining. Upon arrival, the hostess seated us at a table away from other tables, which we thought would be nice. Then we sat for 20 minutes with nobody coming over to greet us, bring water, take any order, etc. At that point we decided to take our business elsewhere. Sorry Krio, we were excited to try you out, but we won’t be returning. If we wanted non-existent service, we’d do takeout.

We had intentions for having a full dinner but after a dozen oysters and a poorly crafter cocktail we decided to move on.
The oysters were not chilled? They were not warm but they should have been served colder than they were. The cocktail sauce was Bloody Mary mix. The gin and tonics were mostly tonic. When we asked about the drinks the excuse given was we have a new bartender. $ 90.00 is a bit steep for 4 smaller than average cocktails and a plate of warm oysters

This was my second visit to Krio. Last time we dined on the patio, however.

The vibe was super dope! Great music and the mimosa carafe is a great buy! I really enjoyed the fried okra and Asian wings!

The inside tables, chairs and windows needing a bit of attention, however.

The server was courteous, jovial and helpful! We will certainly return again.

First time being there and overall had a great experience. The restaurant was nice and clean. Staff was professional and attentive, gave great recommendations! We had the calamari, jambalaya egg rolls, shrimp basket, and the boiled shrimp in the sauce with the coconut milk (forgot the name) it was all delicious, the heat definitely builds. The only thing I could say is that the egg rolls were just way too hot in temperature to eat, ended up eating them towards the end, still a great experience and definitely will be back!
