    I guess I expected more for the price and reputation. Ambience was fine, tho it certainly would’ve been improved with a guitarist in the corner, or something else live but light. My chicken Marsala was good but nothing spectacular. My husband was very pleased with his surf and turf, but I honestly don’t understand the pricing structure there; $7-12 dollars per side - when you’re already shelling out $50 for a steak - seems a bit much. But overall, for a special occasion, it was a nice experience. Just don’t think I would choose to go back at that price point. The one thing I truly enjoyed was the crème brûlée. Oh, and the drinks are very strong, so that was nice.

    Nothing special. They use good cuts but the first steak was undercooked, and the lobster mac was small and barely had any lobster in it. Crab cakes were good, but not worth it. Service is good, but Rey’s is overrated for sure

    Service was really good. The fillets were good. I was a little disappointed in the ribeye. There was more gristle than I would expect in a $50.00 ribeye it was also thinner than expected. The au gratin potatoes were a disappointment as well. It seemed to be just potatoes and cheese will very little seasoning. As a whole the service was impressive however, the food was somewhat of a disappointment.

    Our server provided outstanding service. She was properly attentive and asked the kitchen to prepare Cherries Jubilee as that was the dessert we wanted, and we did not know, nor did their website indicate, that they would have a limited menu for Valentine's, which would not include Cherries Jubilee. Strange, they had Bananas Foster but not Cherries Jubilee on Valentine's. Also, I saw no valid reason for them to have a limited menu as the restaurant did not seem any busier than a normal Friday or Saturday. If a restaurant is going to have a limited menu, it should be posted on their website. Our steaks were very good and seasoned properly. We ordered them Oscar Style, and it had a good amount of lump crab, but there was not nearly enough Hollandaise Sauce. We ordered mashed potatoes and sauteed mushrooms as our sides. The mashed potatoes were fine, but too creamy.....no much texture or body to them. The sauteed mushrooms were more steamed than sauteed. Pretty flavorless and way under sauteed, if they even were. Our starter, the calamari was average. The basil aioli sauce was very good, but again, very little of it. The Cherries Jubilee was very good. Based on the steak and the Cherries Jubilee, I am generously giving the food 4-stars, but because the starter and sides were lacking, the food overall would be 3 1/2 stars.

    Very disappointed, would not recommend. It was poor from the minute we walked into the door. The host put my wife and I outside in a secondary room and we were the only ones out there. And there were a lot of open tables in the main restaurant. Not sure why we could not get a later reservation.

    Good food and attentive wait staff, but price exceeds value. They seem to be overly keen to turn around tables and cordially wave you out of the door. Okay for a special occasion. Be sure to request a table or booth not in a main travel area.

    Amazing pre-Valentines dinner with daughter and girlfriend! Ambiance was perfect, all hostesses, servers, waiters, were quite friendly and knowledgeable. Our waiter was JT. He was so personable and answered every question we had, including specials of the day, and great suggestions! With that being said, there were 10-12 tables in our particular section (French Quarter), I think there should have been at least one more waiter/server in that section. JT kept am amazing attitude even with being stretched pretty thin. We encountered a couple of hiccups. My daughters filet mignon was supposed to be medium well, it came out medium rare (picture). My spinach salad was not supposed to have onions nor mushrooms. It did have those. My girlfriend's wedge salad was supposed to have Danish Blue Cheese crumbles, no blue cheese dressing. There were no crumbles. I will say, all those issues were corrected promptly after being informed. The filet was perfectly tender and seasoned well. My 9 year old ate it with no sauce, speaks volumes! The hand cut fries that came with her filet were AMAZING! My companion got the Grouper Lafayette! I'm not a fan of fish, but I even liked it! The New Orleans butter and lemon were perfect for the fish topped with lump crab. The au gratin potatoes were perfectly buttery, awesome texture with just a bit of freshly ground pepper. Lastly, my airline chicken breast stuffed with herb cheese was absolutely enchanting! Even with small speed bumps in the process, we were extremely satisfied, and will recommend and return!
