    Food was great, but the service left a lot to be desired. We only learned of the specials by seeing entrees hit the table beside us that we noticed weren’t on the menu. When we asked about specials, the server almost seemed annoyed we asked. We were enjoying our multiple appetizers when all of our entrees showed up. Terrible timing. We hadn’t had the apps for longer than 10 mins. There was no room on the table to put the entrees and I asked in earnest where we should put them on the table. The food runner basically snapped at me to move plates so she could drop them. A lot of attitude. Food was really good overall, but the service left a bad taste and left us all shaking our heads.

    I have been this restaurant several times. Definitely, one of my favorite restaurant in New Orleans! Their food is always great! and great value for the potion! However, I felt the service was a bit in a rush this time since it was Friday night and packed with people.

    The food was too salty. The crab claws had turned and service was lacking. I was very much looking forward to coming here and was disappointed. I hope it was an off day for the kitchen.

    The food and service were amazing. The chicken thigh confit fell off the bone and left me wondering when I can come back next. The cornbread and whipped butter made me feel like I never wanted to have cornbread anywhere else. The drinks did not disappoint.

    While they did have a transformer break, which I would expect to slow down the kitchen, it took over 30 minutes for our waiter to actually take our orders. They didn't offer up much in conversation and they never brought our rillons. However, what food was brought out was absolutely phenomenal and I WILL be coming back for that alone. That's not to mentions the friendliness of the rest of the staff and the overall mood of the place never broke despite the electrical issues.

    My food was way overcooked. I couldn’t even cut my meat. . Waitress did offer something else but I declined. Food shouldn’t come out of kitchen that way. I ordered a beer and waitress gave it to my husband. I ordered a second beer and she completely forgot. Even though I complained about the food and didn’t eat it I was charged for it.

    We sat outside on a really hot evening. We were the only ones outside so they were kind enough to seat us in the shadiest area near a fan that kept us quite comfortable. The food and service were great, as always. Highly recommend!

    As always Toup’s knocked out of the park. Their specials are always amazing. My husband had the double cut pork chop and I am not exaggerating when I say that this thing was probably the biggest cut of meat I’ve seen. They’ve been featuring these pork belly corn dogs that are just out of this world. The corn bread with the pork belly is just a flavor over load. Definitely worth the stop through. We live nearby so we stop in at least once a week. Definitely recommend reservations to guarantee you a spot, but they do have a nice bar top that’s full service as well.

    Food was very good. Service marginal. Requested a small dessert for two guests’ birthdays. After the meal server just dropped the check on the table…no offers for dessert, drinks, nothing. Service is part of the dining-out experience. Brocato’s is a short walk away.

    First time here, on the recommendation of a friend who's lucky enough to get down to New Orleans a lot more often than I do, and this was one of the most impressive restaurants I've visited there or anywhere else. Definitely the best charcuterie board I've had in New Orleans. And the service was as sweet as the dessert we didn't save room for. Next time.

    A group of us are working in Nola and have several restaurants on our list before we head home. We were excited for this one and were incredibly disappointed by the food. Everything was so salty, we had a hard time even eating it. I regret not saying something due to the price of the bill and not enjoying anything aside from the corn bread. The service was underwhelming. Our waiter seemed very over his job and over us.
