    Food was good. We had the happy hour oysters and they were so good. We also had shrimp and grits which was good. Overall it was a nice outing. Only complaint is the tables are extremely close to one another. Seems like you are having a group meal with strangers.

    Atmosphere was great. Fabulous service. We got there early and they were able to take care of us quickly. Some items were fabulous and some needed more seasoning. Escargot and bone marrow was delicious along with the crawfish bread. My husband finished all his seafood bouillabaisse and trout was tasty. You have to have the bread pudding! Loved it.

    Third time here but it's been a few years. Definitely gone down hill. Service was not good. We ordered cocktails to start and we're planning on ordering a bottle of wine with the food and told the server our plan. The appetizers came out before the cocktails. Server never came around to get the wine order. Finally ordered wine while we were halfway done with the entrees and decided to just order a glass each. We were seated in the backroom. Not sure if the lack of service had to do with that. Probably won't be back on our next trip.

    Some good food, but overall a disappointing experience. Looked forward to this for awhile for a special occasion and asked for a separate table with ambience. Didn't get it. Asked for a cup of gumbo without rice, got one worth rice. A new one came out - with a separate cup of rice, which I again had to send back. Gumbo tasted good, but it had an unpeeled shrimp. Ordered the fried catfish special. First puce tasted great. The second was so tough I couldn't cut it with my knife. Told these problems to the staff. No manager came by, no adjustment to the check. Sorry. Never again.

    The service was okay. The food was good but over priced for what it is. The menu is very small and the service was okay. We came before the lunch rush and the service was slow. Our server was really nice though. Once the lunch rush came, it became so loud that we couldn’t hear each other speak so we had to shout or just stop talking. Splurge on the pricier oysters as there is definitely a taste difference but you’ll be able to get the same taste / quality of oysters elsewhere in the French quarter for half the price.. if not a third.

    Fantastic food, great ambience. Probably the slowest, most incompetent service ever. BUT the food makes up for it. Budget plenty of time to remind your servers over and over what you’re waiting for them to bring. Try and find the humor in it.

    We started with Tuna Tartare and Luke Salad. Entrées were Shrimp and Grits and Trout Amandine. None of the choices were memorable. Trout was over-salted with not much flavor; shrimp and grits not particularly flavorful and very gooey with melted cheese. Food came out from the kitchen at a very fast pace - entrées came out before we were finished with starters. At the end of the meal, the server cleared the table, didn’t bother to ask if we wanted coffee or dessert, and just plopped the bill on the table. We were in and out in 45 minutes. Not a relaxing dinner at all.

    It took almost an hour to get a salad and a bowl of soup. The matzoh ball soup was so lacking in broth it wasn’t even a soup- hardly any chicken and came out cold with no bread or crackers. $14 for lump crab to be added and it was only a tablespoon. They added a 3% administrative charge?
