I was not able to dine at Sissy's because it is apparently closed for renovation. Open Table should have informed me of this, instead of thanking me for making a reservation...I drove all the way there to find out that the restaurant was closed. Further, Sissy's website should have some sort of message relating to this closure as well.

Disappointing. Party of 9 and first reservation on a Sunday. Waiter was essentially nonexistent. Took forever to greet table and take drink order then even longer to order food. Waiter seemed to disappear for long periods and did not refill drinks, ask if we needed anything, or replace silverware. We think he knew he was getting an automatic 20% tip for party size and did not need to service our table. Some entrees were cold (crab cakes) but had already waited over 1.5 hours for food. Others enjoyed their dishes. Will not return because of abysmal service.

We are the only table that waited over an hour for our food. The server did not explain what was going on. Drinks took a long time to arrive. Horrible experience

It's a very cute restaurant and the food is good but not excellent and it was so noisy (we were seated on the enclosed patio) we had to yell to talk to each other. Service was fine considering it was very busy. I had been looking forward to trying the fried chicken and it was good -juicy and the breading had a good amount of spice. The waffle was very ordinary.

The food was okay for all of us, not particularly outstanding, however. Our reservation was for 11AM. We arrived at 11 and doors were locked then waited about 10 minutes to be seated. Service was fairly slow in arriving, then had to seek out coffee refills, condiments, water refills and finally ask for our check. It was a fairly busy morning but not all the tables were full and no line to speak of. Probably will not be returning nor will my friends. Very disappointed.

Amazing service by our waitress, Miranda and the bartender. The hostess, on the other hand, forgot about us. We had a 730 reservation and were told they were cleaning a table off for us. We didn't get sat till 8 and that was after I went and complained to the hostess. She had completely forgotten about us. It would have been understandable if it was a crazy busy night but the restaurant was maybe 75% full tonight. Otherwise, all other parts were outstanding!!!

The fried chicken was as good as ever and am looking forward to the leftovers. Collard greens were really good as were mashed potatoes. Boudin balls perfect app. My only complaint was that the music was so loud you practically had to shout to be heard. Good music but obnoxiously loud. Lower the music and the ambiance would be better.
