    Did the wine pairing, first wine was served, but course arrived 45 minutes later. Obviously the wine gone, so not able to pair in that course. It was supposed to be a Amuse on a crostini, but was served on a terrible flatbread. Salad course was solid. Fish course was advertised as snapper but was obviously something else, fishy taste with large bloodline and soggy skin, not good. Short rib and dessert were both delish. Wine were tasty from Jackson estates, except Chardonnay was not that great

    The food and service were great! We chose to participate in the New Orleans Wine and Food Experience by booking at Legacy Kitchen's Craft Tavern. The business itself was a great place to go. It was actually one group of other diners who ruined the event for my party. They were loud, obnoxious, and rude. We heard the jokes being told, and they weren't that funny, so the obnoxious cackling hen laughter from the table was unnecessary. Pedestrians outside were even seemingly startled on occasion by how loud this group was. My party couldn't hear each other as we were discussing the chef's menu and wine pairings. I definitely recommend this place for events like this, but I hope next time the managent would be more cognizant of how loud and obnoxious the guests are getting.

    The food was mixed: the Gris Gris oysters were fantastic, some other items were a bit bland. The service was fairly slow, but the staff was courteous and helpful. Wouldn't be my first choice, but a solid option if you're in the area.

    I thought it was weird that we were sat at a table for 6 when there was just the two of us. The host said no other tables were available but I had a booked reservation. When we sat, I notice 3 small tables available. Our waiter, I believe his name is Michael (that the name on the bill-white middle aged man) he was so rude and inattentive. He came to our table to drop off water to the table and asked if we were ready to order when we just sat down. We didn’t even have a second to browse the menu. When he finally came back to take the order, he was not personable, friendly, or helpful. He took our order then hurried and ran away. We first ordered ice tea and a coke with the intention to order cocktails but he never came back to ask or even checked in. When he came to drop off the app, my ice tea drink was empty and he didn’t even asked if I wanted a cocktail or refill. He just dropped the food off and ran off. As if he didn’t want to wait on us. Is it because we’re gay? I watched him interact with other tables (which are white) and he was attentive and making small talks with them. When the entrée came, he did the same thing, dropped it off, and ran off. I had to stop him for a refill. He NEVER came back to check up on us or if we wanted anything else. We were there to celebrate a birthday and was looking forward to ordering dessert but he never gave us an opportunity to. As we were eating not no where finishing our entree, he just walks up to the table and puts the bill on the table and walk away. Not even saying anything. I was like wtf is his problem. He never came up to ask if everything ok, to go box? Nothing. I had to ask another waiter if she could give us a togo box. This was so disappointing. Well there is many places to dine we choose your place and this is not what we expect for service! On to the food, we ordered the crawfish queso which had no crawfish in it, when it arrived the center was still hard which met it was probably microwaved.

You can tell they have fun while they work and are genuine friends. My recommendation to management watch over for your staff. You have a wonderful people working there!! Keep it up.

    Like many other establishments post C19 the restaurant was insanely understaffed. They were still taking guests in left & right but had very few servers to work the tables and even fewer people in the kitchen. It took 40 minutes to get our drinks in. We ordered an appetizer only to be told 20 minutes in that they were out of the food item. We cancelled the order, left money on the table for drinks and went to eat at a steakhouse down the street. I understand being understaff - 100%. I've been in the food service industry, but at the very least get the drinks on the table and have alt options if items are sold out. It was a shame, the location was great & we were very much looking forward to the meal. Their team just didn't have it together this night.

    Kitchen closes exactly at 9 and the server did not try to remind us or give us a warning. We were not able to place anymore orders at 9:01. A warning would have been nice. Otherwise, the food was great and service was friendly. Good drinks, too. Although the bartender made the third of my drinks with rose instead of prosecco thinking I wouldn't notice after I had two of the same thing... Don't make me pay for a drink that isn't what I ordered.

    Legacy was okay. Menu had a fairly limited number of dinner entrees plus sandwiches and bar food items. I had blackened redfish which was very good, my wife had shrimp pasta dinner which was also very good. My daughter had a burger and fries which was okay. Bar drinks were good. Big group in front of us ordering which slowed things down for us.

    Nearly everything we ordered was disappointing, but the shrimp cocktail, in particular, was nearly inedible. It was fishy, soft, not cold, and served with thin, watery, bland cocktail sauce. 0/10. The crawfish beignets were not good. The crab cake sliders were not good. The honey old fashioned was not good. Highlights of the meal included: asparagus, spinach, margaritas, and cornbread. $200 not well spent.

    My waiter was amazing. It was only his second day on the job (I think) and he was very attentive. Unfortunately, the steak frites I ordered was less than amazing. The frites were fine but the steak was tough. I ordered it medium and have NEVER eaten steak that tough at a restaurant before. Although I didn't ask, the waiter immediately had the charge removed from my bill. Other than that, the brussels were fantastic as well as the crawfish beignets and pecan-smoked chicken wings.

    Food was good! Service, not so great. We had reservations and were seated AFTER several other couples came with the same reservation time. I actually think the host 'forgot' about us. We came for the oysters... Got the wrong ones and then were told they were out of raw oysters, the ones we wanted. The oysters were small. This experience was a bit disappointing.

    Absolutely excellent dinner! I had a shrimp po'boy and the shrimp was delicious, tender, and lightly breaded (not heavy). My sister had the roast beef po'boy and I tried a piece of the beef and it was excellent. They must have simmered it the whole day to make it so flavorful and tender. The bread pudding was also excellent for dessert. The french fries were matchstick style and batter dipped, nicely crunchy with great taste.

    Horrible dining experience from top to bottom. In hindsight the fact that this restaurant had availability during a prime dinner hour when the rest of NOLA was sold out should have been a red flag. The staff was disinterested in helping. Server was rude and discourteous. Linen table clothes were filthy and unchanged. When asked about that, the server said they hadn’t changed them in weeks they just put more paper on top. Wow. Just wow. And gross!!!!! Food was fresh out of a microwave and subpar sloppy greasy mess. The avocado salad had no discernible avocado in site. Just a soggy wedge of ice berg lettuce. For a bill that came to $80 it was far below dog food quality, let alone passable for a tourist town known for fine dining experiences. Do yourself the favor and do NOT go to this restaurant.

    When we entered the restaurant, we were greeted by an awesome host. After waiting for about 20 minutes at our table for someone to greet us or ask us if we wanted water, we approached a server to ask who our server was. We were met with a lot of disrespect and harsh comments. We went back to the host, and he immediately intervened to see what this issue was. This is when we were greeted by Tiffany. She was absolutely amazing and turned our evening around. We had a wonderful dinner, and everything was delicious. I am not sure Tiffany was even a server, but she went above and beyond to correct someone's else's mistake and make sure we had a great experience. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Tiffany deserves all the praise!!!

    I understand why this restaurant was so empty in a busy town. The food was badly cooked - chicken bone dry despite being covered in a sauce not mentioned in the menu - I could only eat 2 bites and left the rest. Salad was not particularly fresh. Wait staff were great although when I offered my proof of covid vaccination on arrival (a mandate in New Orleans) I was waived away and told not to worry. I did not like this. Overall not a place I will revisit.

    Our Server Tiffany was great , but the restaurant itself gets a thumbs down. Long wait time for drinks , they were out of several things and food was dropped one person at a time instead of for the whole table . We all got the red fish and all of them looked different. Several issues occurred during our meal and a manager never came to the table to check or even see how the night was going . I wouldn't recommend unless they do some revamping .

    We made a reservation for 7:15 and showed up right on time. Had to wait a little more than 5 minutes to be seated, which was fine. Once seated we waited 30 minutes and still didn't have a server so we went and asked the manager(who was rolling silverware?! WTF?!) if we could at get some drinks or a server. A few minutes later, he came over and took our drink order. Ten minutes later, we got our drinks and they were fine. While waiting for our drinks, our server finally showed up, so we ordered our food with her right away. They were out of everything we wanted to order(the reason we chose that restaurant), so we settled for just picking random items because we were hungry and it was already almost 8:30(we didn't want to try to find another place to eat that late). Our food took 40 minutes to come and when it did, we were missing half of our order(we ordered two flatbreads, two bisque's and a shrimp appetizer, we receive one flatbread, one bisque and the shrimp). The flatbread was so undercooked, the dough was raw and the shrimp was cold. Yes, we should have left, but it was late and busy everywhere(hence the reservation), we knew we wouldn't be able to get a table anywhere else and we hadn't eaten all day. I do understand that they were very busy, but if you don't have the staff, don't take the reservation. And when you're the MOD(manger on duty), stop rolling silverware when your staff is failing around you and help. If your customers aren't ordering or receiving food, what do you need silverware for?

    It took us 30 minutes to receive water, and hour for a bottle of wine which had to be brought by another waitress after having asked. A dessert recommended didn’t even have all the ingredients after we were told by another waitress the restaurant was out of ingredients. A manager never stopped by to ask how everything was. I would not recommend going to this restaurant at all.

    Such an great experience. We made a reservation but they technically closed at that time. We got there about 10 min before they closed and I believe it was the manager who greeted us and he was super accommodating and sat us down. I’m so grateful because we would’ve been left hungry on thanksgiving day. Food was delicious! 10/10 recommend.
