Great food! I exceptional service! Everyone really enjoyed their meal. I got the Spaghetti & Meatballs and I have to say it was some of the best I’ve ever had! The cotton candy dessert is also fun. Highly recommend this one!

Small portions for the prices and more items need to be added to the menu. The food was good though and the service was excellent.

The only thing that would have made dinner better (2 nights in a row by the way) would have been eating it with Emeril himself!!

It was a bittersweet meal as it was my last before this dreadful closure of all businesses in the hospitality industry in Orleans Parish. May you survive & thrive in spite of the draconian measures taken by this city. Good luck to the employees and I hope to see you all very soon! I'll be tipping 30% when I get back.

Disappointed. It was noisy and server was inattentive. Long time between courses and pasta was cold. I would try it again maybe it was an off night. The flatbread special was delicious.
