                                            Very imaginative menu and interesting melding of several different cuisines & cultures. It all worked out very delicious. Some of the portions were a little scant [not skimpy].

                                            Five of us were there to share so we ordered one of each item on the main and dessert menus. Everything was delicious and we also enjoyed a cocktail and bottle of wine. The berry sherbet and jasmine ice cream were sublime.

                                            I should have ordered one of everything on the menu. I did get to try the flank steak, the duck and the pork entrees, all were excellent. Bone marrow and fried oyster for appetizers and they were excellent as well. Only complaint would be the noise lever but I will return.

                                            Maypop has a unique creole flair to its Asian cuisine. The food is great. Portions are on the small side but adequate. The only drawback was the wait staff. They were aloof and cold.

                                            The food was fantastic - I had the pork shoulder and could have licked the plate. Very good service - server was knowledgeable and friendly. The cocktail was lovely but not a standout. Desserts were interesting and enjoyable. They made a special effort to accommodate our increase in number when I called the same day -- much appreciated!

                                            Our waitress didn’t tell us the dish of the day. I over heard it from the waiter telling the next table after we placed our order. Food is underwhelming: crawfish Mac n cheese was too salty. Louisiana seafood hot pot was Asian fusion done weirdly and overpriced for 3 shrimps and 3 clams.

                                            Food was very good. We were looking for a light meal, and this was the right choice. Interesting combination of SE and S Asian influences with Cajun/Creole/regional cuisine. Cool vibe to restaurant, service was friendly, and the amuse bouche of a beignet with curry was a very tasty surprise. Prices a little high but not to be unexpected.

                                            We were one of the earliest to arrive and they were already out of a lot of things. No charcuterie, out of some liquors for front page cocktails, none of the beers on tap because they weren't refrigerated yet. Food portions were small but it ended up being enough for your stomach since the food was so rich in butter and oil that you don't want to eat anymore after that. We ordered the roasted bone marrow, fried oysters, skirt steak, chiang mai curry, pork shoulder, blue crab dumplings, and bread service. Pros: The free beignet appetizer with tom yum was delicious and so were the fried oysters. Cons: The portions for the skirt steak were small and too buttery, the pork shoulder too salted and the grits were swimming in butter, and the chiang mai curry had great flavor but again was so rich with butter no one wanted to finish it. The blue crab dumplings were the most disappointing dish. $25 for 5 of the flattest dumplings filled with cream cheese, no blue crab taste in my opinion. I was very excited to try this restaurant based off of the menu and the asian fusion dishes it offered. I have heard many compliments about this restaurant however a friend who joined me did mention the change in food quality and portion size compared to pre-COVID. I enjoy eating out in New Orleans and spending the money for the experiences but the hefty bill was not worth it. Lastly in terms of service, even though we were one of the first tables to come for dinner time, the food came out very slow, and it took a long time to pay the check.

                                            We've been to Maypop a half a dozen times, but this one was disappointing. We had an early reservation and the restaurant was nearly empty, yet the maître d took offense when we asked to be seated at a table instead of high top. We discovered that Maypop's weekend menu is less extensive than during the work week. Food was good and sauces interesting, but portions run small. We were charged $5 for two extra pieces of bread to mop up the sauce from a $24 appetizer. We will not be back soon.

                                            Inventive Asian fusion cuisine. The fried oysters are a must. Maypop is a true hidden gem in NOLA.

                                            Excellent meal. Portions are on the small side, but I appreciated having room to enjoy appetizers and dessert without being stuffed. Service was very good. Food was served quickly. Great date night!

                                            The service was really snoooty. Our waiter barely cracked a smile and it was as if he was doing us a favor by letting us eat there. The portions were really small and overpriced. We paid $5/dumpling that was so small. There were only 5 on the plate. We ended up overpaying and leaving really hungry. I don’t understand why this is top 10 New Orleans restaurant.

                                            Good was creative and delicious. Fun casual atmosphere. The host was a bit rude and condescending. Our waiter was knowledgeable about the menu, and while not rude, was a bit condescending.

                                            Innovative cuisine (Cajun with an asian theme/flair) in attractive space. The host was very nice and engaging. The waiter was competent but not as friendly and a bit slow attending to us. The food overall was quite good but consistently spicy. Also, one dish was over salted.

                                            This was a bit of a disaster as the evening went downhill from before I got in the restaurant. I was finishing a call at the front door of the place and it seems they sent a server out to see what I was doing. Now I understand as a tall Latin man I may look ominous but I think I dress well??? Anyway, I called them on it and thankfully the young male host was able to smooth out my arrival. He is the best thing that establishment has in terms of staff. The food is an interesting mix of flavors but they never coalesce into something spectacular. I had dinner during happy hour at the bar. The worse part of the evening was the bartender server who seemed bored and uninterested in being a friendly service provider. She let me know this was her Friday. I guess she was ready to go home. I had the oysters which were great! And would have stayed for a full meal but after 2 glasses of wine and another app, I just didn’t feel welcomed. They need to get over their hipster wanna be attitude. It’s NOLA for goodness sake. I went and found a more welcoming restaurant for dinner.
