Perfect for what it is. Good food on property of the WWII Museum

Good tasting food and good service. The dinner salads seemed a little small for the price.

Everything was fine, but not exceptional. Food was a bit overpriced for what it was. The tuna tartar was old and had obviously been refrigerated. The fried oysters were great. The cocktail was fine. Ambience was nice, not too loud and it was easy to have a conversation.

The kitchen was under renovation and the restaurant offered a limited menu but the food was very good and the service was excellent.

Great service! I appreciated the vegan offering of a veggie and humus wrap. My friend liked the buffet and LOVED the salad dressing.

Salmon salad was severely lacking. Spicy Bloody Mary tasted like it had half a bottle of Tabasco in it.

Good food but the service, usually excellent, was not this time. Server was disinterested and disappeared for long periods.

This was a great restaurant to have a group dinner at. The staff was accommodating of our needs and the mixed drinks were delicious! It is worth a visit!

The service was rush, before I had finished my lunch, the waitress asked if we were ready for the check.
The worse is the food portion, my wife portion was of a child size but we paid an adult price .
We will not come back and will make sure others know.

Our experience was wonderful! We had an amazing time at the museum followed by a delicious and relaxing lunch!

The food was great, service was good, manager was awful. When we got there, our table wasn't ready. Said we did not answer phone to confirm reservations that day. We were at the WWII Museum all day. I spoke to a different manager the day before to increase the number of people in our party and was not informed that we needed to contact the restaurant the day of the reservation or it would not be honored. It only took a few minutes to set up tables for party of 15 because the restaurant was empty at 5:00pm. But he insisted that he could not set up tables for our party because we did not confirm. I would have complied with any such request but no one told me I should . We eat out often and are told in advance that we will need to confirm the day of the reservation. I suggest they inform people of this requirement in the future, especially if they talk to the person making the reservation the day before. He insisted I was wrong and the mix up was all mind. Such a rude manager. Everything else was great, thank goodness, since I was entertaining out of towners and we don't need bad representatives ruining our wonderful city.

This was a great place to eat. It was noisy only because of some construction going on but other than that it was great! The staff is awesome and so is the food.

We went here during happy hour and everything we had was absolutely delicious! The appetizers we tried we would definitely get again. And there drink specials during happy hour were great!!

The staff was friendly. The meatloaf was the best I'd ever had. Get the victory salad, worth it for the dressing alone. I would definitely return. Reasonably priced too.

The food was pretty bad. The spinach artichoke dip was flavorless and the Jasmine rice might've been regular rice also not favorable. When I pay for food I expect it to taste better than what I can do in the kitchen. I'm no Besh but sheesh... A cool atmosphere tho.. maybe I expected too much... I mean it was a Monday evening.

Average food and service. With all the great food in New Orleans this would not be my choice unless you need a break from the WWIIMuseum.

Food was fine, server Alfred was great!! But beware where they seat you, they call out names when tables are ready, and they do,it very loudly!! Uncomfortably loud. If you have to sit at a table near the hostess stand, guests waiting for tables linger over you and can almost sit with you they are so close ! The best part of the meal was our server, he was on the ball!

I would not recommend this restaurant - while the food was edible, it certainly wasn't up to New Orleans standards.

This was our second visit to the restaurant. We were visiting the National WW II Museum for 2 days and ate here both days. The experience last year was much better. The temperature seemed to be near freezing and we had to go outside to warm up. It doesn't seem to make much difference if you make a reservation or not. Everyone who wanted to eat there seemed to get seats. The service was a bit slow and the servers seemed to lack training. It took a long time to get refills on hot water for our tea. It also seemed to take a long time to get the check. Overall, you don't have much choice while you're visiting the museum but this could be a much better experience for patrons and workers alike. I would suggest that they bring or change their restaurant management company.
