    If you want a table by the window in the sunroom, ask for it specifically when you make your reservation. We forgot because they always seat us by the window, but this time, one of the owners said the table by the window was reserved. However, we were there two hours and no one was ever seated at that table. Then they seated very noisy children right next to us. This is the ONLY time we have ever been uncomfortable in this restaurant. Very strange circumstances....

    What an experience we had with the best food we’ve probably ever had! The eggplant and filet were to die for! Our waiter Zach was so personable and sweet. The ambiance of this place was perfection! Very romantic for our 40th anniversary! Definitely a must go to!

    We had the best Mardi Gras dinner at St. Francisville Inn! Our waitress Shay was excellent, she made our dining experience extra special. Not to mention the food, my wife is still thinking about the perfect filet that she had, and the pork chop was the best I’ve ever eaten! We can’t wait to go back.

    Our first visit to treat my mother for her 83rd birthday. Everything from the atmosphere, to the waiter, to the food was perfect. We will definitely be back. The only issue was her ambulating the steps; we needed a more flat entrance.

    Setting is in a quaint Victorian mansion. The Crab Brie Bisque was "heaven in a bowl", just as our waiter Xavier described it. The Chop Brie salad was crisp with a rich dressing. The Honey Salmon had a wonderful smoky flavor throughout..My wife doesn't care for bread pudding, but she tried some of my Blueberry Compote Bread Pudding and really enjoyed it! Also, everything was served at the appropriate temperature.
