This is a premier spot in the Northgate area if you love good Cajun food, nicely prepared, seasoned, and presented. I would recommend this for families, couples, office crews, road warriors, guys or gals night out-- you name it. Friendly atmosphere and very personable staff. No complaints. Keep up the great job!

This is possibly the best Cajun restaurant north of NOLA. The food tasted as good or better than being in NOLA. The staff is friendly and very happy and upbeat making the enjoyment even better. The atmosphere also made you feel like NOLA. I know there are other restraints that try like lost Cajun but this is the best. Worth the drive from wherever you are in the state.

We waited nearly an hour for our food. I tried to take into consideration the possibility of low staffing but there seemed to be plenty of servers as everyone around us was taken care of. Some seated after us were even served before us. We were only a party of four. So that was a bit disappointing. Especially since we’ve been to Momma Pearl’s multiple times without any problems. And we had our-of-town guests with us. Food was good but the wait was excessive.

We ate way too much and enjoyed every bite. The owner stopped by to check on us which is always appreciated. I can imagine my Creole grandma and Mama Pearl swapping gumbo recipes.

I believe this is the best restaurant in town. Most of the menu is rather spicy as it is Cajun Food at it's best. They do have dishes such as crab cakes that aren't spicy at all for those that can't handle spicy food such as a good friend of ours that knows crab cakes coming from the north east coast that indicated these were the best she had ever had. Great ambiance and really enjoy talking with Chef "BB" Brunet. He really has a passion for what he brings to the table.

Wanted to try some good Cajun and found Mamma Pearl’s. The crab dip and the desserts were great. Amazing red rice and beans. The saffron crawfish was good too. The gumbo and shrimp étouffée was not very flavorful and was a little runny. We were disappointed in it. The catfish had a muddy, dirty taste to it. We wouldn’t order those again. Restaurant was clean. Service was just okay. We had to flag them down for drink refills and anything we needed. It is very pricey! Next time I’d try a po’ boy.

Mama Pearls took us back 30+ years to living in Louisiana and enjoying regular crawfish boils. The crawfish super platter was amazing and the three of us barely finished it.

This was our first visit to Momma Pearl's kitchen and we enjoyed the food and the scene! My husband is from Louisiana and it made him feel right at home from the seafood gumbo all the way to the beignets. We will definitely be back with friends.

Food is awesome but the service was slow. We had a new server and he was struggling to keep up. The other server were helpful but a woman, who appeared to be the manager, did nothing. The server have to make their own drinks. That really slows down the service. Frankly having a manager who, in the 75 minutes we were there, cleared two plates from one table doesn’t help the servers. Stood hands on hips and watched.

Horrible. Have eaten in NOLA for 30 years. This was mediocre at best. Charged us $3 for Cajun rice and gave a large pile of rice and poor quality etouffee. I wanted a martini, but they couldn’t do it, they only were allowed to make the drinks on the menu. There are no substitutions allowed for anything!! The charbroiled oysters were lukewarm as was the etouffee. Ordered a mint julep, took 2 sips, it was awful. Did get that taken off bill. Catfish filet was paper thin with thick, flavorless crust. Prices too expensive for the quality.
