Creole / Cajun / Southern
The Warehouse District’s only destination for farm to table Cajun Creole cuisine. South Louisiana native Chef Ricky Cheramie creates food for the soul such as Mississippi Style Barbeque Pork Belly, Blackened Scallops with a lobster tasso maque choux, and Cafe Au Lait Creme Brulee with Calas and dark chocolate covered coffee beans. They also squeeze their own sugar cane juice for their simple syrup, sugar cane vinaigrette, and creole mustard sugarcane glaze.

Lovely small space in warehouse district. Attentive, engaging service. Fantastic food. We had the gumbo, fresh fish of the day, and blackened scallops. All well seasoned and delicious

We wanted to try “better” Criole/Cajun, and this place surpassed our expectations. Everything we ordered was even better than we imagined! Definitely a cut or two above the typical fare. The service was extraordinary considering it’s a casual restaurant. We loved our server and his knowledge of the cuisine. In our 4 days in New Orleans this was the best we found, and it was not expensive at all. RECOMMENDED!

We enjoyed one of our best meals during a week-long food and music trip to NOLAat Rebirth. Out of the way and a little hard to find (even by our cabbie!), it was definitely worth seeking out. Small and bustling (but not too noisy), a bit warm in the back corner (no a/c?), we were only put off by the kitchen's requirement that we order our entire meal at once (we usually prefer to order a couple of apps then see how we're doing).

The fillet mignon tartare and carpaccio was a brilliant combination, beautiful to look at and delicious. The quail app stuffed with foie gras boudin was equally good - the pickled mustard seeds that accompanied it were a delightful burst of flavor. A last-minute addition of a cup of their country gumbo (after overhearing another waiter describe it as the best in town) was a wonderful and rich combination of chicken, andouille and Tasso in a deeply-flavored dark stock. The duck Bajeux (order medium-rare!) and blackened scallops were both delicious but suffered from a few too many accompanying side elements which confused our palates with a few too many flavors.

We will definitely return and recommend Rebirth.

BRAVO!!!! We started with the fried okra, then each had the gumbo. Unbelievable! I had the oysters and angel hair. OMG! So wonderful! My husband ordered the duck. Very nice! This is a MUST Do for this part of New Orleans! There are so many amazing options on the menu that we had a very hard time deciding on what to order! We will definitely be back for more!

Loved it so much we came back for dinner with a bigger group. The pork belly appetizer is a must! We also enjoyed the oysters & angel hair and the gumbo. For mains, highly recommend the duck or the stuffed fish (depending on what the fish of the day is -- ours was mahi)

Food and service was outstanding. I really enjoyed the elevated southern cooking; it feels like a Commander's in the making. They had great recommendations for cocktails, and you could tell they were passionate about food. All gumbo has its place in my world, but theirs was truly outstanding. It also came out bubbling hot in a small cauldron which is really nice to have hot soup these days (I feel like there is a fear among restaurants nowadays of serving soup that is over luke warm).

From the moment we walked in we were treated like friends coming in to dine at their house. We had drinks, the country gumbo, farmhouse salad, grilled romaine w/fried oysters and everything was just delicious! For our mains, filet mignon, pork chop, duck bejeux and the veg plate de le soir. I was a little skeptical of the veggie plate as it sounded like it might be too 'busy', but the flavors and textures in that dish were amazing. Thank you to the owner and our server and all of the chefs in the kitchen...it was such a wonderful experience!

In town for a business meeting and got lucky to get in for a meal the other day. Service was attentive, great wine list, outstanding food. Only thing to point out - the portions are very large. The restaurant is not very large so I'd recommend reservations for sure. We tried several appetizers to share that were all very good and a wild boar special was out of this world.

The ambiance was nice - small and intimate. Our server was a bit odd but there's no law against that so that was fine (he may have thought that we were odd too!). The fried oyster salad that I had was good. The lettuce was grilled just right but could have used more dressing but I could have asked for that so no worries there. My husband liked his seafood chowder but I didn't care for it. I prefer a cream-based chowder. The cornbread was ok - would have been better warm. My husband had the scallops. Lots of different flavors going on there. It wasn't his favorite but the scallops were cooked perfectly and were a decent size. I had the mahi-mahi over a bed of gnocchi, greens, and vegetables. The fish was chewy on the outside and flaky on the inside. I thought that the outside was tough but overall decent flavor. However, the gnocchi, greens, and vegetables were virtually tasteless as was the broth that came with it. I would say that my meal was disappointing. When the waiter asked about my dish I told him that, to me, it was tasteless and that I didn't care for it. He seemed surprised and said in a slightly snarky tone, "I'll tell the chef that you thought his dish was tasteless." I told him that wasn't necessary as I was just ready to go. I did see what other people where eating and other things looked good. Fairly small menu. I had a drink that was very good, pineapple, mint & tequila but expensive - $13 for a small glass. Including tip our entire meal was $171. While I don't mind the price, I did feel that it was overpriced for a meal that I didn't like. We originally had reservations for GW Finns but canceled our reservation as we would prefer to patronize small local businesses. In this case, I wish we would have kept it. I am not recommending not going to Restaurant Rebirth but I am recommending that you read the menu carefully before making your selection.

We’ve been eating our way through New Orleans for three days at all the “best” restaurants from world famous sandwich shops to world class brunch establishments. We did not not shop up here hungry (actually quite the opposite). The concluding comment from one member of group at the end of dinner, “this is it... this is the best food we’ve had.” No one could deny it.
