Got seated right away! They accommodated our request to move tables! But I’ve been to this restaurant on a weekend and during the vacation season the live music was better. Also the waiter was SO attentive and wanting to constantly clear and on to the next. It felt rushed and that I really didn’t like. But still would recommend.

This place gets an enthusiastic 5 stars for decor and ambience. Service is also good, but the food is a false note here. Uninteresting, bland and neither authentic nor inspired. The live Jazz performances were nice, and together with the ambulance prop up this place.

I read the reviews and reviewed menu prices before I went so nothing was a surprise. It was Fat Tuesday and 2 bands were playing. Unfortunately the doors to those dining areas were closed so unless you were seated in that room you couldn’t hear the music. We were celebrating a birthday, it was nice that the staff said happy birthday but there wasn’t anything special, beads or dessert that were given. Food was ok, which it was hot rather than lukewarm. We had red beans and rice entree and jambalaya. They were ok. Didn’t knock your socks off. The Mardi Gras cocktail drink was the highlight. Beignets again, not hot out of the fryer but slightly warm and ok. Won’t be back. Service was ok, no complaints. Appreciated the server’s opinion when asked about the different menu options.

The best restaurant in Downtown Disney, hands down. Fantastic New Orleans style dishes. The shrimp and grits is absolutely delicious, the corn bread with jalapeños is just as good. Very nice wine selections. The service is just as outstanding, our server was the best. On our night there we also had life music, a wonderful jazz pianist with a great voice. Every time we come to Disneyland this is the first restaurant we will visit.

My reservation was honored as soon as I arrived. The live music was entertaining but a little loud because we were seated right next to the stage. The food was great. My steak was cooked perfectly. They also validate parking.
