    Really nice restaurant. Food was great. Nice ambience. Great service. If your looking for a little more upscale place but not crazy expensive- this is a great choice.

    The food and drinks were very good. The service was very slow and indifferent. 4 of the 5 entrées arrived together. Since the server never came back to check once the food was brought, he had no idea we were missing anything. Once he found out, he said it was not his fault, but the kitchen.

    We come to Nola often to visit our daughter and no visit is complete without an evening at superior seafood . Cone for the happy hour oyster special ($1) and end up staying for dinner all the while the cocktails flow freely from the very attentive service . It does have a tendency to get crowded during peaks so come early or make sure you have a table reserved.

    At Happy Hour designated bottles of wine as well as drinks are half price. Order early for dinner. We highly recommend the delicious crawfish cornbread topped with etouffe. Can serve two as appetizer. All dishes are good and service is exceptional. Kayla was excellent! Save room for dessert such as Creme Brulee or Bread Pudding. We had a delightful evening!

    Everything was scrumptious! Started with Crawfish Mac n' Cheese, Escargot de Bourgogne, Burrata & Tomato Bruschetta, and Seafood stuffed Mushrooms. Subbed our salads with Crawfish & Crab Bisque and Gumbo. Main entrées included the Beet Salad, Blackened Catfish Napoleon, Tchoupitoulas Chicken, and Shrimp & Mushroom Risotto. This place didn't disappoint and thankful to my Uber driver for the recommendation. Service was impeccable. Thank you John B

    I was seated within 2 feet of a band - a music playing band. I was stunned. Extremely disappointed. Food was fine, but the experience was awful because of where I was seated. Had I known beforehand, I would have left or requested another table. I’ll return, but if it happens again they’ll lose my business.

    This is a great choice for early dinner during happy hour. Raw oysters for $1.00 ea and a bottle of house wine for $14. The scene is lively and the service is good. I go there regularly and have never been disappointed. I recommend you get reservations if you're going after six pm Recently after having two dozen raw oysters I had the seared sea scallops and they were cooked to perfection!
