Very highly ranked in OT and TA ...expected a little better based on feedback but it was really just an average dining experience at slightly above average price.

Food was great, our waiter was new, and really trying hard. He did a great job. A little noisy, but we expected that. Would definitely go back.

Our server Ike made the experience great for us! He was so congenial and outgoing, we would come back just to see him again. He made several recommendations that were spot on. Good food, great service!

Simply the best snapper I have ever had--perfectly seasoned and cooked and veggies underneath were also delicious.

Great food. Although they have other options it’s predominantly a fish place.
Staff was very friendly and accommodating although very busy.
Even though it’s in prime “tourist” real estate it’s a great place to eat. Drinks, apps, dinner and dessert will run you $100-$150 for 2.

Pretty good food, slow service, wait staff hustled but ours had too many to serve. Drinks took close to 30 minutes to arrive.

Had read great reviews about how tasty the seafood was here and it didn't disappoint. I had the grilled redfish with lemon vinagarette sauce and my husband had the snapper and both were delicious. I only wished the serving was a little bigger because it was so good. It did, however, allow me to have room for dessert and so I had the double chocolate bread pudding which was heavenly. I loved the atmosphere in the restaurant too. All in all, a great first dinner on our trip to New Orleans.

Valentine’s Day. Cute ocean themed decor. BBQ oysters were amazing—- could eat a pile of them alone for dinner. Chocolate bread pudding soufflé was almost too rich but definitely hit the spot for chocolate lovers.

Good option for a casual seafood meal on Bourbon Street. We were there on Valentine's Day but, though the restaurant was crowded, the service was very prompt and correct. James was an attentive waiter who had good suggestions on food and drink. I appreciated the fact that the manager (lead hostess?) came round to our table to have a nice chat with us about our experience in New Orleans and to be sure everything was OK food wise.

The meal was OK, but this is a restaurant a long way from the top of the tree when it comes to dining choices in New Orleans. Don't expect too much, even when it comes to local seafood dishes. Average gumbo and red fish for me, whereas my partner had a red snapper that was grey and tasteless. Main dishes were all served on a bed of "seasonal vegetables", old and overcooked they were very unappealing. Sauteed spinach was however a very good side dish.
