Overall the food was decent. The bartender was attentive and friendly. Although, the general cleanliness of the entire bar room was subpar at best. I didn’t realize until I got up from my seat to leave that I had crumbs and other remnants on my pants from where I had been sitting. Also, the menus were dirty and could not read part of the cocktail menu due to the fact that the pages were stuck together from food and drink spills.

Shrimp overcooked and rubbery. Crab cakes were pure mush. The waiter never asked if we wanted a drink or if we liked the food. We clearly did not as he took almost all of if back. Sad.

Fried catfish over jambalaya was awesome. Shrimp boil dinner was awesome. Service was slow as death. 20 mins until drink order was taken. 80 mins for food to arrive. Thank god food was delicious, or I would have screamed. By the way, it was not a busy night. Early seating and dining room half full. Highly recommend for food and hoping they fix the service.

Went here for lunch. A/C was blasting and felt really good. Service was fantastic. Got the house Bloody Mary, gumbo, Bourbon Street Combo, and the key lime pie. Everything tasted delicious. Would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a great meal.

We came to this place based on a friend’s recommendation and were not disappointed. The food was amazing with each dish having its own unique but wonderful flavors. There was a lot of plate sharing going on at our table
Some standouts where the duck and seafood pasta trio but they were all good
The bananas fosters pudding is also amazing
A huge shout out to our waitress Trenika who never wrote anything down and get everything right for a party of six. She was spot on in both her service and personality and it a huge asset to the restaurant.
Well done and thank you for a great time.

New Orleans Creole Cookery was recommended to us by my granddaughter and i'm glad she did. My wife had the new york strip steak and she said it was good and juicy. I had the seafood tower. When I got it I thought I was in heaven. Our waiter was wonderful, the atmosphere was great. It seems as if everyone in the place was enjoying themselves also. I would recommend you to anyone.

Took 45 minutes to get a glass of wine. They said it was due to a confusion over which wine we wanted. There was only one resiling on the menu, don’t know how you can confuse that.

The server was not properly trained, she placed my order even after I said to wait until my daughter figure out what she wants. My food came before my drink and it wasn't even good. The server ordered the wrong drink for my daughter and the manager refused to remove it from our bill. It was just a bad experience all around!

We went early on a Saturday afternoon and there were a lot of staff on duty. There were three orher tables of customers when we arrived. Apparently, we were wearing our cloak of invisibility because no one came to our table to bring water or anything. After sitting, ignored, for 15 minutes—as staff buzzed around us—we walked out and went somewhere else.

This was by far the worst experience we have ever received at a restaurant. It was so disappointing. The server was beyond awful and the manager was useless. Food came out cold and drinks showed up after meal when ordered at same time as meal. When complained about food being cold manager said well I’m sorry the kitchen is now closed but I can heat it a little. Still came out awful. Drinks were watered down mess. Don’t waste your time and money on this one. Worst $250 spent…

Terrica was our server and she was the best service my family and I had during our entire stay in New Orleans. She was professional, nice, attentive, and all around on it! I ordered a Manhattan and the Taste of New Orleans. The food was decent but the red beans and rice were absolutely delicious. The restaurant was very nice and had lots of exposed brick.

I went against the Yelp reviews and thought we would give it a shot. Unfortunately, I should’ve went with my gut and steered clear. Service was horrible. We were there to celebrate our one year anniversary. Took us 15 mins to get our drinks, had to ask where they were… they arrived and one of the drinks wasn’t what we ordered. Food was mediocre. Way overpriced.

When I’m in town every other month. I have been visiting this restaurant for 3 years. I take friends every visit to this place. Sadly, every visit the service continue to be consistent “poor” but the food is excellent. That’s why I continue to come back for the food. The service needs improvement.

Alligator bites were not described as ‘sausage’ with some gator meat added; very misleading.
Full meal delivered with no utensils. Had to ask for silver, she brought it out in her bare hand, wet, like it was right out the sink…invest in more utensils!!
No crab/lobster tools
Wine came in a tiny ‘shot glass’, had to call manager to fix

Was there an hour, waitress stuck her rear end in my face at least 3 times,managed to get water and 2 salads that were wrong. When we requested to see the manager, his lack of concern for his staff's performance was unacceptable. He only offered further excuses. We were there twice before, our bill both times was no less than $125 for my husband and I because we loved their oysters. Needless to say we will not be returning, we will be taking our patronage elsewhere for future visits to New Orleans.

I went to this establishment during happy hour, for happy hour for my mom's birthday. The hostess asked was I there for Happy Hour and I said I was but preferred an inside seat which was granted. My waitress even made mention of the oysters I was ordering for happy hour.
Our party finally finished and we received the receipt we were charged "FULL PRICE for the oysters. The manager NICK sent message back thru waitress saying "the oysters are only happy hour price at the bar and there is a sign at the front". I asked to speak to the manager at this point. I told him I interacted with 2 employees that knew we were there for Happy Hour and neither of them corrected me or told me any different and he still wanted to charge me full price and said there was nothing he could do bc he wld get in trbl. He stated with the Happy Hour oysters I had to get a drink (not listed anywhere) (Nick said if I wld have set ay the bar they wldve told me) he cldnt split the checks nor cld he do 2 discounts on 1 ticket (I had a Groupon too). After about 15 to 20 mins of telling him that this was not my fault and he needed to rectify this bc he was the Mgr he finally corrected the issue. I really feel that the happy hour stipulations shld be listed on the electronic menu and the hard copy menu and all employees shld know the rules as well. OAN: the oysters were amazing!
