    My daughter and I were visiting NOLA for her first time and she wanted to try some authentic Cajon and Creole food so after some research we discovered this restaurant in the Drench Quarter. We sat outside and were handed menus right away and asked if we wanted any drinks besides water. Our waitress was very knowledgeable about the menu and was able to answer our questions since we were unfamiliar with some items. We ended up ordering the Taste of New Orleans (sampler of four items) and the Creole pasta. Both were a little pricy considering the casual atmosphere of the restaurant (plastic cutlery and paper menus). However, the food was delicious— spicier than we are used to with our California palates, but really good! The Jambalaya and red beans and rice were standouts in our opinion. The pasta was very generous with shrimp and sausage and a little bit of chicken. We didn’t have appetizers or drinks and they include a mandatory 20% tip but our waitress told us she didn’t actually put it in the bill, however it was suggested at the bottom.

    We were seated quickly having reservations. It took awhile for our waitress to come get our drinks or food orders. I ordered chargrilled oysters and they were delicious. My husband order the pecan crusted redfish after being told they didn’t have the grillades &amp; grits. It was bland and had not flavor, the fish was so thin it was basically just crust &amp; pecans. I expect more for $34. My son ordered snow crab and they plate bring butter or crackers to open it. My daughter had fried shrimp and they were ok. The waitress seemed off put when we asked for butter and tartar. My husband spoke with management as 20% gratuity was to be figured it because of a holiday and our waitress was so rude with us. I would say over all the oyster were the best thing about it and they were subpar compared to the other places we had them! If your after good food and good service I wouldn’t recommend.

    The place is on a busy street in the French Quarter, old historic building with poorly maintained dining halls. The servers were friendly and helpful. The food was poor- salty, oily, deep fried dishes were 80% of the offerings, the crawfish etoufee had a bland gravy from a grocery store packet. Overall disappointing experience.

    Management is unprofessional and rude. Our server put in the food wrong. She told us it was be a 5-10 wait for the correct food. 20 minutes later, the food was still not there. When asking management to remove items from our check because we didn’t eat it, they told us we had to give it back in order to void it. We also were seated 20 minutes prior to anybody attempting to serve us at

    Food was delicious but food delivery timing was a mess. Almost 30 minutes from first dish to last dish. We had 9 people. Apps came out fast. 3 meals came out fast. Then had to wait another 10 minutes for the next 4 meals. Then they realized they were missing 2 meals which we had to wait another 10 minutes for. Then they still missed the side for one of the meals which arrived after all meals were already eaten. The server smiley was sweet and did a fine job. The drinks were good enough but the overall execution failed. Manager only offered a free frozen hurricane as a consolation prize. No discount on the food because it was “already eaten”. Who says that?!

    Like many establishments, NOCC seemed short-handed. We waited a long time for water, to even place an order, to get our drinks, and our food was not warm. It was overcooked. We ordered blackened redfish, and redfish pomtchartrain. The drinks were very small (sazerac and frozen hurricane). Total bill was $100+ for a very mediocre experience.

    I got the pecan crusted redfish. It was extremely overdone and cold not to mention over priced for the quality. The mixed potatoes and carrots accompanying the dish were cold and mushy. Our server was extremely unpleasant which added to the horrible experience. Will definitely not be returning nor would I recommend to anyone else.

    I want to be clear my rating for service has nothing to do with our waiter. We had an 8:15 reservation and when we walked in we were 12 minutes late. There was no host. We waited and waited. And a gentlemen came up and told us they weren’t seating anymore we said we have a reservation. He left and out come the “manager” jaide who was the most unprofessional manager I’ve ever met. I get it. It’s late they want to wrap it up. But the dining was still pretty full. She told us she had no more reservations and we said we were for 8:15 but late. She said well your more than 15 minutes. But we were there she want. Anyway, She told us we asked to sit at the bar and that’s where we will be sat. Not exceptions. If it weren’t for the food and the waiter “smiley” and the bar tender we would never go there again. Yes the food is excellent.

    Our waiter seemed like he didn't want to be bothered with us. It was Friday night and 30 minutes before closing so I get it, nevertheless it's a service industry. But that wasn't the main issue. In the middle of my meal, we saw a huge rat running down the wall. I screamed and ran out and they comped the meal. However our waiter made it his point to walk over to us and advised us that we need to leave him his tip...and we did because he did wait on us. Overall, would not recommend.

    Terrible service! Ridiculously loud as heavy tables and chairs were being rearranged…servers didn’t attempt to even lift them, they just drug them around on the hard floors. I noticed as we were being seated that the table beside us appeared to be newly set, but was covered with big drops of water making it look like it had not been bussed after last service. Once we were seated at our table, which was directly beside aforementioned table, and our drinks were delivered, water started dripping from the exposed pipes onto our table and our bodies. We told the server we wanted to move and explained why, and she told us we could move to “that table,” and she pointed to where WE should move to. She didn’t offer to help or apologize. When appetizer of raw oysters was delivered, they were “dropped off” as server was talking to another server. There were no crackers included, server never returned for us to ask for any, and we knew it was time to leave. We spoke to manager and said we were not going to be staying for the meal.

    The location is fine; though there isn’t much to see if you are tucked in the back. Our server seemed to be new as she didn’t know much about the menu. The price does not line up with the quality or presentation of the food. For $60/person (dinner) I expect more than just generic food slipped into plain little bowls.
