One of the best restaurant experiences I’ve ever had! Everyone in our three person party love the food. It was amazingly good. Everything our waiter recommended was exactly what we needed and more. I’d recommend the scallops entree and gumbo appetizer.

Everything was fabulous except the music which was not live. It was a taped collection, some was good but most of it was awful.

It was one of the best dining experiences I have ever had. The food was outstanding; compliments to the chef. We had the pork belly, gumbo, and oyster angel hair pasta appetizers. Service was great; our waiter was incredible. Only negative (sort of) was our pork chop and duck entree sizes were enormous. Lol.

Overall great experience, service was excellent as was the food. We had multiple appetizers, fish as the entree and dessert. All cooked perfectly, served in a no rush atmosphere that allowed for good conversation and after dinner drinks.

Service and food are top notch here. Ms Sierra, Ms Sophie, and the General Manager are some of the best people i’ve met. All that said, the atmosphere here lends itself to easily meeting and befriending new folks. My brother and i had the pleasure of befriending an awesome local couple who made the night so much more enjoyable. Blessed to meet Josh and Taysha this eve…love you guys 🤙

We will not be back. The gumbo had way too much sausage in it The pork chop tasted good but was clownishly large. Premises were not exactly clean, and the service was slow.

My steak was perfectly cooked. it came out on a sizzling cast-iron skillet. the outside had a wonderful crust and the inside was still medium rare. Topping it off with the chimichurri sauce completed the meal perfectly. My date ordered the mahi-mahi which was also fantastic. I would highly recommend this restaurant for a romantic dinner for two!

Friendly wait staff, very tasty and well-prepared food. The pork belly was unbelievably good! As were the scallops, gumbo, creme brulee with beignets, and white chocolate bread pudding. Wonderful local food, including PJs coffee! We often like trying new places in NOLA and not necessarily returning to places we've been, but Restaurant Rebirth is one that we plan to revisit!

A quaint, intimate small restaurant nestled in the warehouse district of New Orleans on Fulton Street. Food and service was outstanding! However, the menu is somewhat limited, but you should find something that you like. This place is pricey, but overall worth it. It is a farm-to-table restaurant, which I like a lot! A fine dining experience. Expect to spend $150 - $200 on dinner for two, plus tips. I'll be back.

We wanted to eat authentic southern cuisine for our anniversary dinner and man we were not disappointed. The food was to die for, everything tasted delicious. The menu is limited but I would sacrifice lots of options for good ol’ tasty and delicious southern food. Compliment to Chef Cheramie! Will definitely go back on out next vacation to NOLA.

Fantasic dinner! All dishes fit together and did not compete with each other. My blackened redfish was moist with lots of flavor and the bacon green beans I would pay the chef to watch him make the dish. She had the Oysters and Angelhair pasta, lots of flavor in the pasta sauce with the crawfish and tasso mague choux. Sagenhaft!

We might come back to NOLA just to dine here again. Truly an inspirational meal!

Hands down best food in New Orleans! And, trust me… I have gotten close to eating at them all! Everything was amazing! Flavor combinations, presentation, and the bread pudding is the best I’ve EVER had! Naomi and Alyssa (please don’t butcher me for the spelling) were our servers and we couldn’t be more please with them! They even explained to us the story behind the naming convention of the restaurant! If you don’t eat here, you’re missing the best meal in the city! Cheers!

Just a terrible dinner! The waiter paid no attention to us. Eventually he apologized but did not attend to us any better afterwards. I had to go to the bar to pick up my drink (which was crappy). They had only one meat option - pork. The fish was overfried and salty, smelled a bit too. My stomach did not take well to it. It cost like 'fine dining' but everything else was anything but 'fine'.

Due to the rain leaking into the restaurant, a couple of tables we unusable. Because of this the management told the staff to quicken their service and made us feel very rushed. This made our experience just awful. The food was good and our waitress was great. It wasn’t her fault.
