    We are Texans who travel to NOLA often. Of all of the many, many great choices of places to eat in NOLA, this is one of our favorite fine dining restaurants. Last night, my Husband and I brought three friends from Texas here for the first time. The hot and cold appetizers are so good, that several of us just had two or three of the appetizers. Everything is superior. You will always have a choice of both a fish or two entrees as well as a steak entre. Great wine selection, too!!

    Place didn’t live up to hype or cost. Tasting menu left me hungry. Service is as eh, bus person dropped a few pieces of silverware. Waitress forgot our first pairing (which is ridiculous considering it’s $200 pp). Loud. Clientele wasn’t what I expected given hype Was disappointed overall

    It was a wonderful evening. The Thanksgiving menu was well thought out and none of the flavors overwhelmed the others but were extremely complimentary. The food was excellent and well prepared, the service was outstanding and the noise level was relaxing. It was not loud or overwhelming. We will definitely return!

    The small serving size concept is not something I have an appreciation for. I do not enjoy a large amount of food but do appreciate an appropriately size amount of food to enjoy the composition of the ingredients of what is being offered.

    Thanksgiving. Disappointed it was a prefix menu. Not advertised as such. Main course filet was a very small poor cut and overcooked and dry and tough. They had a free amuse-Bouche but somehow we were the only table that did not get it. In general food was good but over priced

    The service was very good, the ambiance was very nice, the food was questionable and overall it was very expensive, for what we were served. I ordered frio gras and got a tablespoon size of loose pate' and so on....etc., etc. Very disappointed...

    One of the best restaurants in the city. Menu not big but everything on it is done very well. As most restaurants and dress is casual these days, this is one of the last upscale restaurants. Most men had jackets when we went on a Sat. nt.

    This is truly a fine New Orleans restaurant. While a bit pricy, it’s probably similar to other top notch restaurants. Service was excellent by the whole team. Dell was our lead server and gave us the right amount of very friendly attention. Additionally, the other service staff was excellent as well, great support overall. We had outstanding fish dishes, as well as a hot & cold appetizer. All were first class, with pleasing unique flavors. Wine recommendations were nicely paired with our food selections.

    Anniversary dinner. Ordered the tasting menu with wine pairings. One of the top 5 meals/experiences since Covid. Outstanding in every way. Food spectacular and service - food and wine - beyond comparison. My wife said it is her favorite restaurant of all time. That is a gross understatement.

    August is a favorite of mine. I didn’t give it the highest score for service because they were too efficient. We ordered cocktails, cold and hot appetizers, wine with the entree and dessert and we were done in 40 minutes! That was much too quick for an elegant meal such as what they offer. So we sat in their bar to enjoy the ambiance a little longer.

    Just ok, very pricey for the portion sizes. Wish we would have gone to GW fins for the second night in a row instead. The duck three ways was pretty good, the steak was disappointing- it tasted like it had a Lipton french onion soup mix sauce on it.

    Always delicious. Crowded which increased noise level, but not too bad. Our server was not the usual highly experienced type, but she did send a more experienced staff for help with wine choice and pairings.
