This was my first time dining here. The food was delicious. I had the duck and sausage gumbo, it was all that and some. The seafood platter was huge everything taste very fresh. Great place. Make sure you make reservations, because the place is rather small, but wonderful. You won't regret it. A little pricey but worth it.

We were thoroughly pleased with our selections for dinner as well as desert! I enjoyed the 12 oz buffalo rib-eye and my date, the lobster ravioli. Everything was cooked exactly as requested and tasted wonderful. For desert we had the bread pudding which was some of the best I've ever had, and my date agreed. Last but certainly not least we shared the crab cakes smothered in sauteed craw fish tails. They melted in our mouths! The wine list was great, as was the service. All in all it was a great dining experience. I will not only be going back but would certainly recommend Schilleci's New Orleans Kitchen to friends.

Had a great business meal here. Food was very good but the bill was quite high. We had a $40 bottle of wine and spent $195 for etouffe, jambalaya, one small gumbo and crab cake appetizer. No tablecloths. Restaurant feels like you are in a strip mall. All that said, I would go again on business but not on my own dime. This was convenient. I will do a bit less convenient if on my own.

The food was great. Atmosphere was cozy and peaceful. Had a nice birthday dinner with my special someone for their 40th bday. Only con was that I reserved on behalf of his birthday. But, had not received acknowledgement from the server in regards to the birthday preparation I made prior to our arrival.

Chef sampler was very bland. No bar so mixed drinks are out of the question. The chef leaned on the counter the whole time we were there. The best part of the visit was the owners upbeat conversations with other customers.

The food was awesome and a very attentive staff. I was really shocked when my wife slipped and fell when we were leaving our table. What made it even worse is not 1, not even waiter, asked if my wife was ok. They just looked away like nothing happened. Beware if you ladies wear heels the laminate floors are extremely slick.

Clever and inspired options. We had chicken and sausage gumbo and crawfish bisque to start, both really well done. For entree; fresh fish is brought in each day. We were delighted to see traditional creole and Cajun recipes paired with non-gulf fish. Everything came together very well and was a terrific dinner.

Had lunch here and loved it. There were three of us, and we had gumbo, jambalaya with shrimp, and jambalaya with chicken. And of course we had to try the hush puppies! Everything was absolutely delicious. Wonderful service, fun atmosphere. Thought about having dessert but we were all too full.

Save room for beignets! We had a lovely lunch. They were busy, but when our waiter couldn't tend to us, someone else rushed in to fill the void. The bread for my poor boy was just right, crunchy outside and softer inside. Gumbo was flavorful. Other dishes lacked a little spice but were serviceable. The beignets come in a generous portion, perfect for sharing - just don't wear dark clothes because you're sure to wear powdered sugar home!

We always enjoy our occasions at Schilleci's. The food is great, the fish fantastic. I love the choice of fish with choice of topping and method. Service is great. It's small, intimate and lovely. We also love sitting outside in appropriate weather. I hesitate share my pleasure - I love the ambience and coziness! But Schilleci's does deserve being bragged on. Well done!
