Horrible dining experience from top to bottom. In hindsight the fact that this restaurant had availability during a prime dinner hour when the rest of NOLA was sold out should have been a red flag. The staff was disinterested in helping. Server was rude and discourteous. Linen table clothes were filthy and unchanged. When asked about that, the server said they hadn’t changed them in weeks they just put more paper on top. Wow. Just wow. And gross!!!!! Food was fresh out of a microwave and subpar sloppy greasy mess. The avocado salad had no discernible avocado in site. Just a soggy wedge of ice berg lettuce. For a bill that came to $80 it was far below dog food quality, let alone passable for a tourist town known for fine dining experiences. Do yourself the favor and do NOT go to this restaurant.

When we entered the restaurant, we were greeted by an awesome host. After waiting for about 20 minutes at our table for someone to greet us or ask us if we wanted water, we approached a server to ask who our server was. We were met with a lot of disrespect and harsh comments. We went back to the host, and he immediately intervened to see what this issue was. This is when we were greeted by Tiffany. She was absolutely amazing and turned our evening around. We had a wonderful dinner, and everything was delicious. I am not sure Tiffany was even a server, but she went above and beyond to correct someone's else's mistake and make sure we had a great experience. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Tiffany deserves all the praise!!!

I understand why this restaurant was so empty in a busy town. The food was badly cooked - chicken bone dry despite being covered in a sauce not mentioned in the menu - I could only eat 2 bites and left the rest. Salad was not particularly fresh. Wait staff were great although when I offered my proof of covid vaccination on arrival (a mandate in New Orleans) I was waived away and told not to worry. I did not like this. Overall not a place I will revisit.

Our Server Tiffany was great , but the restaurant itself gets a thumbs down. Long wait time for drinks , they were out of several things and food was dropped one person at a time instead of for the whole table . We all got the red fish and all of them looked different. Several issues occurred during our meal and a manager never came to the table to check or even see how the night was going . I wouldn't recommend unless they do some revamping .

We made a reservation for 7:15 and showed up right on time. Had to wait a little more than 5 minutes to be seated, which was fine. Once seated we waited 30 minutes and still didn't have a server so we went and asked the manager(who was rolling silverware?! WTF?!) if we could at get some drinks or a server. A few minutes later, he came over and took our drink order. Ten minutes later, we got our drinks and they were fine.
While waiting for our drinks, our server finally showed up, so we ordered our food with her right away. They were out of everything we wanted to order(the reason we chose that restaurant), so we settled for just picking random items because we were hungry and it was already almost 8:30(we didn't want to try to find another place to eat that late).
Our food took 40 minutes to come and when it did, we were missing half of our order(we ordered two flatbreads, two bisque's and a shrimp appetizer, we receive one flatbread, one bisque and the shrimp). The flatbread was so undercooked, the dough was raw and the shrimp was cold.
Yes, we should have left, but it was late and busy everywhere(hence the reservation), we knew we wouldn't be able to get a table anywhere else and we hadn't eaten all day.
I do understand that they were very busy, but if you don't have the staff, don't take the reservation. And when you're the MOD(manger on duty), stop rolling silverware when your staff is failing around you and help. If your customers aren't ordering or receiving food, what do you need silverware for?

It took us 30 minutes to receive water, and hour for a bottle of wine which had to be brought by another waitress after having asked. A dessert recommended didn’t even have all the ingredients after we were told by another waitress the restaurant was out of ingredients. A manager never stopped by to ask how everything was. I would not recommend going to this restaurant at all.

Such an great experience. We made a reservation but they technically closed at that time. We got there about 10 min before they closed and I believe it was the manager who greeted us and he was super accommodating and sat us down. I’m so grateful because we would’ve been left hungry on thanksgiving day. Food was delicious! 10/10 recommend.

The service was disorganized and took 15 mins for anyone to take our order . It took even longer for the order to get to us . It was over priced for poor quality especially very small oysters . The best part was the birthday dessert , only because it was free . I may try again but won’t be my first choice .

The restaurant was supposedly closed. We had called ahead of booking the reservation and they confirmed they were open until 9pm, when we got there for our 8pm reservation they said they close at 8pm and the person we talked to was misinformed and they needed to “work out their website” so people wouldn’t be able to book reservations after their open hours.

Everyone has raved about the crawfish beignets. However, there was no crawfish to be found and the sauce was rather bland than spicy. New Orleans is the home of spice. It has inspired me to go home and perfect this meal.

Stopped in for breakfast on a Monday, fairly early. Hostess wasn't very friendly but our server was nice. Food was pretty good, pretty basic. Hollandaise sauce was very tasty! Mini beignet were good as well. Avocado toast was just OK. It needed thicker bacon to compete with the (tasty) wheat toast. Overall good for the price and service but not anything special.

So happy to have Legacy Kitchen in my neighborhood. Their beignets are spot-on. Their take on a Bananas Foster Waffle is also fun. For something savory, the New Orleans Grits Bowl is a winner. AND, having your own pot of coffee on the table for breakfast is a big plus!

We went for an early dinner, so the noise level may be different later. I can only say that EVERYTHING we tried was amazing.

Services was fast, efficient and friendly. The Old Fashioned was one of the best I've ever had - and I come from Bourbon country!

We had appetizers (Flatbread and Tuna) and two fish entrees (Salmon and Redfish) and all were to die for!!!

This is added to my NOLA favorites!

We were very pleased to walk in this restaurant after driving to New Orleans.
Food was hot and delicious with some fun southern additions to pub food.
The decor was very fun with super comfortable chairs.
I also liked that they carried local beer on tap.
