    We had a great server. He was patient with us and attentive. The hot food was served hot and the cold food cold. We were there for lunch, but the brunch menu was still available so some of us did brunch. The fried potatoes served with my omelette were probably my favorite. Additionally, I had a peach Bellini. Mmm… It was a little hard to hold a conversation, but that’s to be expected in that location. High ceilings, hard wood floors, brick walls. An added delight to the experience was live music. Terrific restaurant. A little pricey, but it’s only money! And I had a great meal with the family!

    The Mother’s Day Buffet Brunch was delicious!! At $35 a person I thought it was slightly high, but only because us ladies just eat 1 plate. I love the variety, the live music, and the beautiful flower boxes outside!!

    We visited Mouth of the South for Mother's Day brunch. Overall, the food was ok and edible, but nothing was hot. In fact, it wasn't even lukewarm. My family's favorites were the cocktail shrimp with remoulade sauce, tasso benedict, herbed roasted potatoes, sausage links, and the salads and fruit were fresh and delicious. The gouda mac n cheese had a good flavor, but it was cold. The fried chicken was screaming for salt and was fried so hard that it was difficult to bite into. The live music was a bit on the loud side, and were thankful we were sitting in the adjacent room or else it would've been way too loud to have a pleasant brunch. Our server was great. For $35 per person, not including drinks, we could've had a much better meal for less money somewhere else. I would try them again and order off the menu, but I wouldn't return for a special occasion brunch.

    We visited Mouth of the South on Mother's day and had the Sunday brunch. The omelette station was great and I really enjoyed the Egg Benedict and the boiled shrimp. Finished it off with bananas foster and french bread.

    When we were first seated it was at a two seat table-top that was close to the kitchen with staff going in an out. I don't believe the table was assigned to anyone as we waited for approx. 8 minutes. I requested that we be able to move to another table because of the staff traffic. While we were waiting for another table, server Lea came by and found out the situation and did her best to let her supervisor know. The manager moved us to a better table and Lea happened to be the server. She was great! She was pleasant, attentive and made the Mother's Day/birthday experience a positive one.

    Disappointed there was no mimosa special this year, but mostly disappointed in waffles this year. They were hard & stale. The sauce, which was what I most looked forward to, was cold & too thick. Last year’s buffet was the BOMB! This year was just ok, especially considering it was $5 more along with higher cost of mimosas. Waiter was superb, same as 2024. Might consider another option next year.

    Very disappointed. Expected much more for 36 dollars each. Eggs were cold and tasteless. Pork loin at carving station was dry and tasteless. Grits were clumpy and dry. French toast was placed in small bowl and there was not enough as it was right by the carving station and was gone as quickly as they put them out. Potatoes were very good. Service was good. I really like this place normally, but this was a disappointment.

    For this being their first time doing a holiday buffet it was very well done. They efficiently sat us and got us drinks and to the buffet. The buffet was kept full and the food options were sooo good. Would definitely do this again. Mother’s Day? 😉

    We have eaten at both locations. Went to the Old Market for their Easter buffet. So much food to choose from and all delicious. They had a carving station that had pork tenderloin and banana foster French toast. Also a salad table, a fruit and pastry table and an omelet station with a ton of options. The main section had numerous selections of main courses and side dishes. Our server, Sam, was excellent. She was engaging, a delight to talk to and made sure we had everything we needed. We will definitely be back for their next buffet.

    I ordered the "BOURBON STREET SURF & TURF" which specifically says it includes a 'Center cut filet.' What I received was definitely not a filet, it was a strip with a line of fat down the side. I brought it up to the server and he actually told me it was filet which was just a bold face lie but I guess what else is he going to say lol I won't ever go back here to be honest.

    Chose MOTS for a birthday and pre-event dinner. The place was FULL and buzzing. Our server was very attentive despite all that was going and very willing to assist with our slight rush. Two of us ordered the featured M&C, one Kickin Chicken Pasta and one the catfish perdue in addition to the boudin balls and mussels appetizers. Several had drinks. Probably one of the best visits. Jennifer our server helped immensely.

    Unfortunately when we arrived at 7pm there was a packed house due to a Creighton game and an event at the orpheum. Plus a party room of 50 people. This was our first time at this location so we definitely had bad timing. Kitchen was slammed which meant it took almost an hour to get bread and salad. Fries under cooked and my prime rib seemed like a bad cut of meat. The waitress did give us credit in the fries. The waitress was very transparent on the situation and very nice. We still did tip 20% due to her being so nice. We will have to try again at a better time where its not so busy with downtown events.
