    Had tried this restaurant before, thought it had a cool vibe. Unfortunately our experience wasn’t great this time. Our food took an extremely long time to come and most of the group did not like the food. Wonder if they have staffing issues that was a problem? The management seemed to realize service was off, they comped one of the cocktails. So, disappointed with our experience, but I hope they recover soon

    Made a reservation for 4. Upon arrival was told our only option was 4 seats side by side facing out the window, not conducive to conversation. When we raised objections to this arrangement we were told we could pull a 4th chair up to a small outside table that was set up for 3, however we could not pull the table out from the wall, or rotate it to access the 4th side. When we again expressed our displeasure we were told that they were sorry, but that another table of 4 had shown up 15 minutes earlier insisting they had a reservation, when they did not (staff confirmed this). Staff did not explain why this group was given priority of an group that did have a confirmed reservation. Needless to say, we left and ate elsewhere given that we couldn’t even be offered proper seating.

    This restaurant has some of the best Asian/NOLA fusion cuisine I’ve ever had. Lemongrass Crab Bisque! Who knew? It’s so delicious, be sure to order some bread for sopping up every drop! Unfortunately, they ran out of the pork chops, one of their more popular dishes, so we both had the duck. Succulent and delicious! They make their white chocolate mango cheesecake on site, and it’s excellent. Want to try a truly different dessert? The Indian beignets in rose water syrup are a treat. It’s a round fried cake donut they have soaking in the syrup full time, but it doesn’t penetrate into the cake part for some reason. So the inside isn’t soggy! Our server was wonderful. She’d been there three years and was incredibly knowledgeable about the food and the restaurant. Come a little early so you can choose for yourself from their extensive, yet reasonably priced, wine selection. I’m definitely planning my next trip back to eat at this amazing place.

    The staff was rude and indifferent. Gratuity of 20% was included in the form of “service charge,” which was itemized along with drinks, entrees, etc. as a purchase. When the bill was presented, the receipt was folded in half with the tip line face up and a suggested additional gratuity of 18, 20, or 22%. The staff is grifting the customers. The food overall was good.

    We were ignored as well as others around us the whole night. The waitresses went outside and smoked cigarettes on the back patio right next to the dining area. It caused the whole place to smell like cigs. Overall pretty bad experience and it was automatic gratuity which is pretty annoying considering the service. Would not recommend. A gentleman next to us had to get up and go grab the waiters to get service. He said they were behind the bar eating chips. You could just tell everyone around us was getting annoyed with how bad the service was. We were sat down got our orders in and after that no more service.

    Beautiful, romantic environment. Great acoustic violin band added so much to the ambiance. The best part about this place is that they have a great bottle wine selection and we shared a great bottle of wine for shelf cost (~$20). The waitress did not tell us how the bottle buying worked so we had to figure it out.

    Absolutely delightful! Had the drum with coconut sauce which was enormous, perfectly cooked, and of a piece with this treat of an evening. We were warmly welcomed and took a high top that had clear privacy screens which were tastefully blended with the existing decor and let us tete a tete even though the atmosphere was thrumming with the other guests joyful conversations. We were taken care of quickly but never rushed so we made our show at the Mahalia Jackson with no stress and lightly socially lubricated with the Hendrick’s gin and Sangria generously poured and kept fresh throughout the evening. Love these guys and this place and thank you for your part in a magical night.

    We went for the Coolinary special. Most places, the coolinary is pretty limited, but the options at Silk Road all looked good. We had the samosas, wings, short ribs, and red curry chicken, plus the cheesecake and bread pudding for dessert. We also opted for the wine paring. The dessert wine was really sweet. All of the food was very tasty and we’ll definitely be back.
