We have always loved Sala and lately with the beautiful weather we have eaten at a table outside. It is one of our favorite restaurants in New Orleans.

Sala was excellent. The service, ambiance and food was great. I will definitely be back to dine there! The spinach dip and calamari were outstanding. My entree was great (golden fried drum) 10/10 recommend.

I had made a reservation for 4 people and an hour before our reservation time our party expanded to 8 guests. I called and spoke to the owner Joe who made some adjustments in his reservations to accommodate our party. Always very nice and accommodating to our needs. Thank you Joe and our favorite server Kelsey.

While the food was good but nothing to write home about, Sala is a great cocktails & appetizers restaurant where if you do get hungry enough after that their food is definitely good enough. There are better places around for Italian entrees, but this place really is a happy hour heaven for the neighborhood.

Food was not seasoned at all. A shrimp and calamari pasta dish was not tasty at all--only 3 shrimp and a couple rings of calamari - for $21! Will not go back.

The service was not very good . Had to wait a long time for food and I don’t think the waiter ever asked the table if we wanted additional drinks. Food was delicious. I would definitely go back. Everyone has an off night!!!

We were here as two couples to spend time catching up with each other. Once the drunken ladies at another table left, the noise level was lowered quite a bit. Ivan, our server, took very good care of us, being attentive without hovering. We had almost every small plate/appetizer on the menu and they were all delicious. Food came out quickly and it was hot, fresh and attractively served. Specialty drinks were a bit on the pricey side, so this was not a "cheap date" site, but we'll definitely be back.
