    It was the worst dining experience I’ve ever had. We had to wait over an hour for our meal. I ordered the lamb chops and they were cold. Luckily, our waitress was gracious and took it. Once I received my meal, the lamb chops and vegetables were not seasoned. The lamb chops were overcooked and I did not receive the chimchurri sauce. The drinks and gumbo was ok. I don’t think I will ever eat here again.

    Worst experience ever. Had a reservation was sat by the front door. The table was rocky. Took 30 mins for someone to ask if we had been helped another 10 before someone came to take our order. They had only 3 beers available and their mixed drinks were on tap. Ugh!!! Food came out cold and hard. Horrible.

    Our server was great, and our apps came out fast. We were waiting for friends who unfortunately went to the wrong restaurant. Once we did order our entrees took a long time to come out. My co-diners food was cold and dry, mine was good, but a hugs portion. In the restaurants defense, it was Ash Wednesday and Valentine's day, so it was packed. Maybe the place has some kinks to work out, so I would give the place another chance.

    We went the night of Mardi Gras after a long day. Our waiter was tired and did a great job considering it was the end of, what I imagine was, a horrible shift. The gumbo was cold but he heated it up, there were other food issues that I chalk up to the day. I would try it again on another day.

    Both myself & friend love this place. That night we both had heartburn untilAM- I don’t know what was different- didn’t taste different ( I can’t remember the appetizers or main dishes we got) LOL, maybe we just ate too much?! Look over the menu (And the cucumber cocktail is great- go for happy hour. ) and maybe see what’s in the dish.

    “A MUST go to” in NOLA for an unexpected taste / quality experience of food and liquor! Seek out Tony at the bar, he is a true Drinkspert!! The chef definitely knows what he’s doing, the pork osso buco served over grits with brussels sprouts shouldn’t be missed!

    We ate here while staying at the Hilton Riverside for a convention. It was a great little eatery. The crawfish Mac and Cheese was phenomenal. Every part of our visit was enjoyable. The hostess and waitress were friendly and helpful when ordering. Their homemade pineapple seltzer made with their vodka was delicious. I would definitely go back when in the area again.

    It was a good experience for my first time at the restaurant. Our server was good/great with giving good food recommendations. Though we had a hiccup with the appetizers. They corrected the problem quickly and it almost came out better! I will be recommending this restaurant to my other out of town friends!

    Our waitress was not good on checking on the table. We had to ask for refills several times. Our gumbo came out barely luke warm. One of our entrees was supposed to have roasted potatoes and we had none. The steak was soo tough it was almost not edible. The flavor of the food was good.

    The bartender (whose name wasn’t given) wasn’t personable with my party but quite chummy with the party that sat down after us. He was very short with us and wasn’t welcoming. It felt as if he didn’t want us to sit there. The food was good, but the kitchen dropped our appetizers so they arrived after we started eating our entrees.

    It was a great place to eat dinner before NYE. The cocktails were original and the lamb chops were cooked perfectly. The crawfish Mac and cheese was accented with breadcrumbs making it extra good. The lump crab and avocado dip was a great appetizer too.
