    Of all the amazing restaurant options in New Orleans — a city that has some of my favorite places I’ve eaten in over the last 10 years — I really regret I wasted the time and money to come here (and invited our friends to come with). The service was some of the worst I’ve had in any restaurant, but for the price of a 5-star restaurant. It all started well enough: we were greeted, got seated, our server introduced himself, we ordered cocktails, and they brought us some bread. Fast forward us asking for the wine menu, never getting it, asking someone else, finally getting it halfway through our apps, asking for a sommelier, finally being able to order a bottle of champagne, having a random server take glasses away from 2 people at our table while we had more champagne chilling somewhere, bringing them back, another random server dumping the last of the champagne to fill up one person’s glass to the top while 2 of ours were empty, no one asking if we wanted anything else to drink, etc. We had to ask for an extra piece of bread 3 times before someone brought it, and then someone took my friend’s plate with bread still on it right out from under her nose. No one asked how our entrees were. No one checked on us for most of the meal. I’m not even sure the server actually asked the chef about being able to order items off the chef’s tasting menu since he forgot to let me know his answer until I asked again. It was almost laughable… if appetizers weren’t $25-30, mains $50+, cocktails nearly $20, a glass of champagne $30, etc. We honestly should have known, since my friend came here last time and spent $1k to have a similar experience. What a joke.

    This is a very high-quality dining experience. You have the option of a price fixe multiple course option including wine pairings or à la cart. The restaurant is lovely and very quiet. The service and staff are a large part of this rating. This is a special restaurant that you may want to take part in for a special meal, or to celebrate. The attention to detail, from the service to the carefully prepared dishes is one that we won’t forget. This is as good as a fine dining experience you can have in New Orleans. We highly recommend this for that special meal. The wine and cocktail list is also excellent.

    Due to distance to the hotel and rate I had to twice. First dinner was the experience and it was much better than the second time. Last time the service was not good and we have to keep calling the server for food and wine. Also, we had two bottles of wine and dinner and at the end they offer some “in the house” chocolate. One of the guest ask if we could have one more and they denied it after a 1200 bill for 5 people. Food was on small plates so not to fond of the experience.

    If in New Orleans, do yourself a favor and dine and this restaurant. The food was incredible, especially the duck. Service was attentive, but not overpowering and the ambiance was soft and romantic. Highly recommend this place if you want something besides creole dining options.

    Absolutely superb meal and experience. From the amuse bouche to the chocolates with passion fruit center everything was delicious, the staff were extremely attentive. One of the best meals I’ve ever had. We had the white asparagus crayfish tart and red snapper and shrimp main dish. The spoon bread and the creole cheesecake with banana balls and pineapple ice cream were also excellent. The recommended wine pairing with the fish was perfect. Great place for fine dining.

    The service and food was outstanding. We did the chefs tasting menu (well my partner did I ended up feeling not so well at the start of our meal) they were gracious enough to cancel my half of the tasting menu because I struggled to stomach food at the moment. Time and time again they offered me different beverages to settle my stomach. I really appreciated that, thank you for allowing us to still have a lovely time on my partners birthday 🥰 Ps it will be some of the best food you’ve ever had. Must hit while you’re hear in Nola!

    This was a “dining experience” rather than a “dinner out”. We were a little intimidated by the menu, but were delighted by the outcome; we had the shrimp and the oyster starters, the snapper and striped bass entrees. The vegetarian choices were a bit limited, but the chef’s surprise and the spoonbread muffins were awesome!
