I loved this restaurant. First visit. In town for business. Pluses: Creative flare on local dishes as appetizers (okra, oysters and boudin) and then really tasteful and well-executed entrees, including pork shoulder, tom yum and pasta with sweetbreads. Could be happier with the food. Minuses: Wines are a little overpriced (IMO) but I don’t know the local pricing model or custom. Nice and interesting selection of vineyards represented but not the top bottles from those producers (e.g. Blackbird Arise instead of its better sisters, Paramour and Contrarian). Anyways, small complaint. Definitely recommend this restaurant and will come back on my next visit.

I ordered the calamari, and the Tom Yum dish with shrimp and Florida clams. Both dishes were very tasty; however, the cost of both was pretty outrageous for the amount of food given. The calamari was I believe $11, and it was maybe a handful, and the Tom Yum for lunch was $17, and it might have been one of the smallest dishes I've ever seen. I realize our portions for restaurants are generally way too large, but I would like to actually like to be full after eating an entree. Both my companion and myself ordered an appetizer and an entree, and we still weren't really full after finishing both. I did enjoy the sampler biscuit and dessert they gave us before and after our meal.

Maypop was excellent! Biggest regret is that we don’t live in New Orleans so we can try the other restaurant and return to Maypop. Every course was so good but you just can’t order it all if there are only three people. God I wish there was one in Los Angeles.

I haven’t been to Maypop for the past year or more. I always enjoyed the creative food but my wife was not a fan. The new menu is amazing. We met Chef Michael who came out and greeted us too. My wife told him that Maypop was her No. 1 restaurant now in New Orleans. That is a big change. The chilly crab, the Tom yum noodles and the fried oysters were just amazing. Will be back very soon and many times too.

If you ever tire of the wonderfully heavy and rich servings that make NOLA famous, this is a nice break. Incredibly eclectic menu that will remind you of high end trendy foodie stops in your hometown. Definite recommend

Dynamite place. The bucatini was a top 10 pasta dish for me. We also got the fish which was swordfish that day - incredible sauce and cooked perfectly. Don’t be afraid to treat yourself and get the bread service for like $4. Great drink list and the service was top notch. You will like the food don’t skip this place.

What a fabulous experience! Rarely do you find a restaurant with such flavorful and unique dishes that cannot be imitated or duplicated anywhere else. Every single thing was spectacular: shrimp buns, Bangkok noodles, buckwheat noodles with crab, oysters, wings, pikapika and ginger smash.. everything!
And best happy Hour I’ve ever been to!
And fantastic service!

Amazing combination of spices & condiments make up each dish. Don’t go there without ordering dim sum calamari on the weekend, best is US! Our server was over the top attentive. Coming back before we leave the city.

This place always amazes, whether it’s a $5 glass of happy hour wine with an appetizer off their special menu, lunch or a full on dinner extravaganza, they get it right every time. Staff is super knowledgeable and personable without acting like they’re part of your group. They refill your wine glass like ninjas! You didn’t even see them do it. They make honest recommendations and help guide you through a menu most folks would be unfamiliar with. Truly a destination restaurant.

The flavor profiles are exotic and heavenly. If your palate is mature or you wish to educate it as to the finer things in life, this is definitely the school in which it should be enrolled. By the way, please order the bread service: amazing! The duck liver boudin balls are extraordinary and the sloe slow-roasted pork shoulder is orgasmic.

My husband & I have been twice & the good has been perfect every time. We split one dish from each section (snack, starter, noodle, & entree) & it's more than enough! The ambiance is perfect for a date night.

I would say that this is a highly experimental dining venue. They are trying to fuse several types of food (asian, french, italian) and some of it is ok, but some of it isn't. Do not try the duck pate. It's awful.
