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.

Had a bad experience so wanted to try again. Fish...WAY...overcooked. Service slow despite only 3 tables seated. We had to ask for our server to come take our order. I feel bad writing this review as this is a great concept we've just not had a good experience...TWICE. I wont be going back.

We started off with the eggplant crawfish appetizer and everyone loved it. The eggplant was fried to perfection.
One of us added the petite greens salad and it was anything but petite!
I had the redfish with the beurre blanc sauce and fried artichoke hearts (sorry, I forget the exact name) and it was delicious. It wasn’t my first time getting it and it won’t be the last.

The atmosphere is nice and on the casual side. Dress was anywhere from casual to business casual. Conversation was loud and has been that way each time I’ve been. It’s a nice date atmosphere but I wouldn’t call it romantic.

French 75 was excellent. Appetizers of BBQ shrimp, and eggplant napoleons were excellent. Nightly specials of duck and lamb lollipops were even better. Overall it was a very good meal. The abbreviated menu is expanding with great specials. Life is slowly returning to normal. Hooray. Oh yes, the service was excellent as always. Thanks Lisa.
