    Another outstanding meal. This place has become my go to favorite. Great oysters, & some of the best seafood gumbo in the city. Instead of going my usual way with an entree, I decided to try the fried oyster salad & a side of French Fries. I expected a small handful of greens with 3 or 4 small oysters…& I am happy to report that my expectations were far exceeded. Lots of bacon & tomatoes in the salad, lots of good sized oysters, & the dressing had a nice zip on it. Very filling & satisfying. Pretty much a meal in & of itself, so as a warning, unless you are very hungry (I was), you may not want to order much else. Oh, fries with the aioli mayo were great too. As always, my server was attentive & polite, not rushing me even though I had a late reservation & I was one of the last people in the place.

    Would have been five stars all the way but the entrees came out almost on top of teh salads. Waiter offered to take the entrees back to the kitchen but that would just have dried them out. Other than that, great.

    Had the grilled Brussel sprouts and duck breast. Sprouts were too al dente, needed to be cooked a bit more, duck breast should have been served on a heated plate.

    Service was horrible. Stuck as at the back corner where the servers entered their orders into a big wardrobe and kept flinging the door open in my face cornering me in. We did have good food for 3 out of 4 dishes. Never got offered a second drink. Wouldn’t go back.

    The food was excellent. Was a little annoyed that we weren't allowed to order off the brunch menu (before time) but were surrounded by others that did get to, just seems inconsistent and another person would have probably been more upset.

    We dined on a Saturday night, service time was about expected. My wife ordered the burger and was good. I ordered the duck breast. The duck itself was good but very small…about 6-7 bites. I also had the diver scallop crudo, not worth the $14. It’s one scallop sliced with the sauce.

    Very tasty Prince Edward mussels. Good jumbo shrimps. Food worth the price. Perhaps serving too many tables, the waiter is inattentive (not even introducing himself and took long to deliver the check). Very crowded and noisy, not a typical Hilton standard. If you only care food and value, you may try it.

    We were given a cozy table for two in the corner which was very pleasant. The waitress did a great job describing dishes, food came out quickly and was delicious. Duck breast was sautéed to perfection, fried oysters were great (but would’ve been even better served with some house-made remoulade or cocktail sauce), and the roasted chicken was flavored and cooked perfectly.
