    Other than the restaurant not recognizing the Open Table reservation which then left us with the first come first serve seat at the bar & a view of the liquor selections the staff & the food were great. Rather noisy and difficult to hear, especially the next door neighbors at the bar, but WTH, it’s the French Quarter.

    This was not the quality fish restaurant that was described but a tourist trap restaurant decorated pretty. It was loud and hard to get the waiter's attention. It is attached to the Hyatt hotel and Hard Rock Cafe right on Bourbon Street (thus the noise)

    We ate here Easter Sunday. I highly recommend it. I was able to get reservations for two at the last minute. The selection of food was great. The quality of the food was great. The atmosphere was fantastic. There was two easter parades in the area which added to the atmosphere. The only down size was parking in the area was expensive, $37 for 3 hours.

    We went for the Easter Brunch. It was pricy and they didn’t mention that they had discontinued the bottomless cocktail specials in their promotional materials. The food was good enough and the service was also decent. That said it was loud and definitely felt more casual dining than fine or fine-ish dining. Overall-we spent over 600.00 for 4 people and didn’t leave feeling blown away.

    This restaurant is likely riding on its reputation as a Brennan group member. We were seated right away but no one came to the table for 20 minutes. After ordering drinks and food, the appetizer came within a few minutes, but it took another 20 minutes for a glass of wine and a soda to arrive (now more than 40 minutes after arriving). The rest of the food didn't arrive until we had been there 1 hour and 20 minutes. Our waiter struggled to understand simple requests; it is likely he does not understand English well. We finally finished dessert after being there 2 hours 15 minutes. We talked to the manager three times to find out what was happening to our orders. The people on either side of us arrived after us and consumed three course meals in the time we waited between one appetizer and our main courses. The food was good, but the meal was spoiled by the worst service we've experienced in many years.

    We got suckered into this place by the ratings and the menu that was online which was much broader than the one in the restaurant. This is a great place for a conference goer but it didn’t hit my tastebuds, the service was just ok but very slow and it wasn’t cheap either. Mistake.

    The food and the service were excellent! The decor is a bit cheesy and I worried, walking in, they’d only know how to fry fish. Wrong! We all had the signature dish plus three outstanding appetizers—GF fish bites, the brussels, and some of the best Fried Green Tomatoes I’ve had! The bar handled my husband’s off-menu cocktail order perfectly! Highly recommended

    We waited a full hour for shrimp and grits entree, 1 crab cake and side of Brussel sprouts. The restaurant was very crowded and there were several large parties. Which seemed to have slowed down the kitchen. Also the portions were small in comparison to other restaurants we’ve dined at. But food was good. I would recommend dining here on a none peak time.

    It’s our first time in the city and having dinner at a restaurant. The food we ordered wasn’t very remarkable. The shrimp in shrimp grits was much better and tasted fresher than that in creole shrimp, as more than a couple of the latter was soft and mushy. Both grits and fried catfish were not significantly better than what a small family diner could offer. The passion fruit crème brûlée was on spot, while the strawberry shortcake was a little off as the shortcake tasted like a scone for better or a corn bread for worse.
