Hostess was a witch. Nathan was an OK waiter at best. Food was very good but overall I would say there are better places to eat in NOLA. don’t go here, find other places like Mr B’s or Cafe Amalie

We love their happy hour, which includes drink specials and reduced prices on raw oysters. And since we live a couple of blocks away, we go often. Lots of outdoor (and along the windows) seating, which is our preference. I don't recommend indoor dining because it is very crowded and noisy. But as long as you are in the patio-like sections, the ambiance is wonderful. The oysters were great. We had some good side dishes. And ways love the frozen French 75's.

Didn’t get the room I requested. Too loud where we were seated close to band. There was a sewer type odor in the area we were seated.

The frozen mojitos had us thinking about them when we left. So the next night we came back. Also happy hour oysters were fantastic. Definitely great ambience and great food. We’ll be back for sure.

We have eaten here twice now over the span of a few months. This time our entrees were middle of the road. The watermelon and feta salad was a close second to the wonderful raw oysters.

I had the shrimp and risotto, the was not good, I did not finish and the hostess who clears our plates commented it was a heavy dish. I would say yes, very heavy and quite mundane on the pallet.

Our server was fantastic and attentive, just hoped for more for the entrees.

Wanted seafood but didn’t want to stick with our default place. Had the salmon salad and it was super good. Decent size piece of salmon with a fair amount of other veggies mixed in which I totally appreciated so it was more hearty. Would definitely go back just for that salad. Also want to go back during Happy Hour since they had some decent specials.

Downsides were noise level and service was a bit slow. But neither of those are complete deal breakers.
