Limited, but excellent menu. Oysters always on menu and always fantastic. Flavors are novel and delicious. Spicy or mild options. Tasted chicken, drum, oysters, duck ham, charcuterie - all perfect! Vegetarian choices.

When Maypop first opened we were some of their first customers and have returned on multiple occasions.
Saturday was our first visit since Covid 19. It was outstanding with vibrant flavors, excellent service and a great ambience.

This was our first indoor restaurant experience since COVID. We wanted to make it special. So many times I have come home after eating out and thought I could have made it myself better. Not this time. The chef has an outstanding gift for mixing flavors, spices and fresh ingredients in a way that would be hard to replicate. It truly is an experience in flavor! The service was impecable down to the last detail. We will be back to taste everything else! My only problem was the level of loudness from the customers but that is pretty common in New Orleans restaurants.
Don’t miss out on this jewel of a restaurant!

Excellent food, service, decor, and ambiance, featuring interesting and unexpected mixtures of local and Asian cuisines. When they say "hot" in describing the fried chicken you should take that very seriously, but the dish is unusual and delicious nonetheless. The noodle bowls are wonderful. And if you like Sazeracs, be sure to try the "Sazerac du Roi": it's a sophisticated and tasty take on the venerable New Orleans cocktail. This restaurant is highly recommended on all counts; don't miss it!

Started at the bar with a delicious Pika Pika, Maypops take on the margarita and was delighted. After proceeding to our table we enjoyed the delicious bread service, a must have for carb lovers. We then had the oysters and coconut salad with Bibb lettuce and cashews. We ordered the blue crab pasta which was absolutely amazing and unforgettable as well as the shrimp and grits, also yummy and the short ribs which were satisfactory. All around a great meal and will definitely come back.

Great experience on every level. Table was ready at our reservation time. Our server, Lindsey, was fantastic: Friendly, Personable, and Insightful. She guided our food tour and steered us into some extraordinary culinary delights. The scallop and blueberry small plate was an unexpected pairing that found fans among us. From the bread service to the duck ham to crawfish étoufée curry to egg yolk custard, we did not have a bad bite all night. Even the cocktails contain layers of surprise. Cannot recommend MayPop highly enough.

Different menu listed on Open Table versus what they have in restaurant.

Waiter broke a water bottle right behind my chair. Glass went everywhere. No one asked if our table
Was okay or if glass got on us.

Everything was perfect. One of the best meals I’ve had in the last 5 years. The smoked duck ham was out of this world, perfectly paired and balanced flavors. This is will a restaurant I’ll visit every time I’m in NOLA.

The food was delicious. Not a huge menu, but our party has varied tastes and we all ordered something different and were delighted. Our common treat was the oyster dish. We ordered 1 and then 2 more.
Also, one person in our party has an allium allergy and because of the curry the chef and server steered us in the right direction. Thank you for an amazing and imaginative lunch!!!
