One of the best meals I've ever had! The real star of the show was the amuse bouche -- curry beignets w/tom yum cream cheese. WOW. I asked for the recipe!

A very unique menu, and descriptions of dishes were not clear. One entree was so spicy we couldn't eat it; the happy hour special of fried oysters was almost inedible because they were fried too long.

Last evening in NOLA and wanted a great meal. Ever dish was fantastic! The smashed cucumbers, bread service, pika pika cocktails, pork belly steam buns, gulf fish, bread pudding and ice cream were all amazing. The same can be said for all the staff - the service was professional, prompt and super friendly. Prices very reasonable. This is a must try while in NOLA.

Excellent service and lunch! We're still talking about the cocktails, apps, mains, and our server (whose name we can't recall, unfortunately, but she was great!) Can't wait to go back!

We had:
- Crispy Fried Oysters
- Blue Crab and Fermented Black Bean Gumbo
- Gulf Shrimp in Smoked Paprika Curry over Cheesy Grits
- Spicy Buttermilk Fried "Hot Chicken" in Vindaloo Curry

I don't know how this place remains under the radar. I really don't. The lamb with roti alone is enough to go crazy over. And today's tomato and melon salad with basil was extraordinary.

I have never had food like this in my life. This changed my entire perspective on what flavors could go together. The chef is a genius, and no food will ever be the same. I was speechless at the end of the meal. Best food I've ever had. Ever.

In town to see my daughter for my birthday and we literally came here for happy hour straight from the airport-
This was a fave haunt pre-Covid and I was so excited to see them open again
Right back to my favorite oyster plate and pika pika cocktail! Daughter loves the pork belly bao buns-
And all the social touches: complimentary amuse bouche and sweet to end the experience
As before, 5 star service and good Vibes

Reliably good. Hard to complain in these times. They were a little understaffed but given the current state of affairs people who still work in restaurants should be praised for hanging in there. Micheal Gulotta is a hell of a chef.

Server was so friendly, ambiance was very nice. Food was good! The curry wasn’t very flavorful which was a bummer. The bread service is DELICIOUS. We were a bit confused as the entire time we were two of four people in the restaurant and it took almost an hour before we got our entrees. So definitely recommend ordering apps and bread as those came out quickly! Will absolutely be returning, happy to have y’all back!

The food was wonderful. I had a pan-seared fish fillet that was just awesome. The bread is sooo good. The kitchen sends out little treats too, which just adds to the experience. The only downside was the chardonnay, which was weird and very unlike most chardonnays. They know it's weird too, which begs the question of why it's the house chardonnay.

Excellent service. Charcuterie plate was an outstanding share plate for our table of 3. However we were less than impressed with the rest of the meal. The bib salad had too much dressing and the lettuce wilted under it. I told the waiter and he immediately relayed it to the kitchen. They took it off my bill without being prompted. Excellent service. Our other 2 entrees were cooked properly but lacked the seasoning that we would have preferred. That is just a preference however. Id3 try again with different dishes.

Very nice place, pretty and clean. Interesting menu, all dishes were unheard of before, and takes a good bit of explanation. Everyone in our group really enjoyed the food.
Don’t go if you are afraid to try new taste.

Food very good

In an almost empty restaurant we were brought to the closest table to the kitchen and server station.

They became grumpy when we pointed to a better table and requested to be moved. We had reservations and were on time.
Put a palor in the meal.

I was really excited about this meal going in, but it turned out very underwhelming. The quality of the ingredients and overall food quality was great; however, there was just way too much going on in each dish and they were VERY heavy. The most disappointing dish was the Tom Yum pasta dish, which our waitress talked us into. It cost over $20 and was terrible. Our waitress saw that we only took a few bits of it. She should have compt it, but didn't.
