Food was good. I had the lamb chops and my husband had the seafood cannelloni. Our plates were clean! Pleasant service. On the downside there were people seated very close at the bar with no effort to socially distance.

Restaurant week: appetizers and entrees were very good. Dessert was so-so (creme brûlée) was not fully caramelized. Hostess didn’t give us all menus. The server was good and attentive. Cocktails were unique, but not all a big hit—though drinkable. The food though was quite good and we do definitely plan to return soon.

Not on par with City Pork in all areas. Food was adequate but not outstanding. The service was below par, except for the manager's excellent attention to detail. Ambience was fine.

We arrived at 5:30 pm on a Saturday with reservations for 4. Which was good timing because the restaurant got filled up within the hour or so. It's not a quiet type restaurant environment. The bar is within the main dining area, music is constantly playing in the background and you'll have the echoing of conversations (which gets worse when the room gets filled). I'm a light drinker so I always ask for something delicate and fruity. Our server recommended the Miss Honeypenny. It's similar to a Mojito and a little too strong for me but it may be good to others. Ok down to the grubs. For appetizers, we got the mussels (sorry, couldn't get pics fast enough. The guys were hungry but it was topped with skinny fries) and also Mushroom Bienville. Both were very good. Only complaint was I wish there were more mushrooms (only 4 to the order). Main course we had the lamb chops, redfish, rouj ribeye, and roasted chicken w/ red beans. No complaints here, all dishes were cooked well and tasted very good. Lastly for dessert, we tried the apple nachos. Weird combination but interestingly delicious. The service was good and the staff was nice. I didn't give 5 stars because of the level of noise. Other than that, food and staff were great. Will definitely come back.

What a great experience. The food was absolutely delicious. The waitstaff was friendly and helpful without hovering. Even though the bar is part of the main restaurant the noise level was low.

It was too bright. We were at the restaurant for dinner and they had the lights on full blast. I felt like I was being interrogated.

Excellent fresh fish dishes and very creative sauces. Try the PeriPeri on fish or quail! My favorite. Wine list is innovative! My weekly dining spot for both lunch and dinner

Our girls’ night was awesome thanks to the wonderful service and delectable food. We had a sampling of several appetizers that were all delicious, as well as several cocktails that were perfectly blended. Marcus, our server, was a delight and very helpful on making menu choices

Made reservations for date night, still had to wait fifteen minutes for our seat. Our server, PJ, seemed very busy that night and wasn’t able to check on us very often. Food was outstanding- if a bit. However, the noise level of the restaurant brought down the experience significantly.

Had a lovely booth and felt very safe from Covid there. Cannelloni is excellent, and so is the rack of lamb. Desserts are very creative and delicious. The hot chocolate brownie was fantastic.

Had a wonderful waiter Phillipe who gave us great service.

1st time dining experience and it was very enjoyable. Service was great and food was delicious. My husband said it was one of the best duck gumbos he had ever eaten and we were told it was Stephen’s recipe.

My fish was undercooked and when I sent it back it’s like they didn’t touch it and it was still under cooked. Although they did not charge me for the meal which was very decent of them I’m not sure about going back. My friend with me felt the same way. I don’t understand how they could have left it raw in the middle and not noticed if they really redid it

Sat at a high table in the corner by the window - noise level is much better in this area than the rest of the restaurant. We love this place. Service is great always.

Three of the four for our ladies lunch got the Lunch Fish Grill three-course special, each trying a different fish. They all enjoyed it very much. One in our party tried the West Indies Avocado Salad. That salad had a very small portion of crab, and not a lot else in the salad in sufficient proportion (except lettuce), so it did not meet expectations for the price. Would not order again. We shared the bread pudding dessert and enjoyed it as well. We also liked the big booth seating. Server was friendly, professional and very knowledgeable about menu and wine. Will go again and try something new.

My family was in the area and looking for dine in options. We had the brunch menu and all enjoyed our meals even our children. The decor is wonderful and I hope to go back soon on a date night to enjoy some of the cocktails.

Our server was great. The food and bar did take a while but I would expect that during COVID time because of shortage of workers. Food was nothing to right home about it was just okay. The bread pudding was very good. The atmosphere was nice. We dressed up but you could wear jeans.
