Lovely from start to finish! The cocktails, sesame bread appetizer and entrees were incredible!! We had a sweet server who brought us some gifts from the kitchen which topped off a delicious meal. Love the fusion of SE Asia with Louisiana cuisine. Highly recommend.

So happy Maypop is open again! The service was impeccable - both our main server and the bartender were very friendly and provided excellent suggestions. Almost all of the food was 10/10 - the only thing I didn't love was one of their specials, a crab and avocado toast (I'd give it a 7/10 - so still very good, but the other dishes, which included their hot chicken, one of the noodle dishes, and a dragon bean appetizer that was a special that day - were perfect). I will be back for my perennial lunch menu favorite - the braised lamb with roti!

Great food but very small portions for the price...two people for lunch shouldn’t cost $90, service was wonderful and would go back just not prepared for my first visit to spend that much

My wife planned carefully to be the first in line when Maypop reopened this morning at 11.
We had the last table just before they closed and pledged we would be there when the next chapter began. The sheer intelligence and inventiveness of the cooking here still shines through, as we were sure it would. The staff knows the menu well (even on the first day back) and can make good suggestions. The ingredients are superb. And everything dish will have that special extra taste that will grab your attention and reward your tongue.

To our surprise, we learned on arrival that we were the last booking for the foreseeable future. Rather than cutting corners so everyone could leave, the bar, kitchen, and servers went out of their way to make the meal a memorable one. Maypop adhered to its alway high standards, which we really appreciated. As we left, several staff came out to say goodbye. We told them we hoped to be the first booking at the eagerly anticipated reopening.

We arrived at 6pm for our reservation for dinner for four people. We had tickets at the theater across the street for a show starting at 8pm, and we informed our waiter of this. We thought we had allowed plenty of time for dinner. The service was very, very slow. The entree portions were also very small. By 7:45pm we still did not have our desserts or our ticket and had to cancel our desserts and ask our server several times to please get our ticket taken care of quickly. There are a lot of great restaurants in New Orleans in the CBD, so I doubt we will return to Maypop.

First, and foremost, the food is evocative and wonderful! Would absolutely recommend everyone step out of the usual NOLA fare and give Maypop a try! I am sure it was just a fluke but we did have some service issues - they directed us to sit with a 6-person group that was already seated (we were NOT part of that group - awkward!, brought an appetizer to our table that was not ours (no big) and didn’t bring the bread service we ordered (sigh - it looked wonderful on other tables!). Again - I sincerely believe this was just an off service night and will head back to Maypop next time in NOLA!

Love this place! We've been wanting to try this place forever and walked passed it tonight and decided to try it out. The cocktails were inventive and tasty and the food was to die for. I'm usually not a curry person but oh lawd this place does it oh so right. Our server Neha (spelling?) was so attentive, warm and friendly and always had a genuine smile on her face. I'm so glad we stopped in. I just wish we had room for dessert! Next time :)

Truly fantastic food with incredible service in a lovely setting. I cannot recommend Maypop enough. As for what to choose, I don't think you can go wrong. I had the fresh fish and fried oysters, and my companion had the duck ham. We also had a side of bread rolls that were to die for. And the salted carmel cake?! Good Lord, it was good.
