We have been to the Quarter so many times over the years. Always a good experience. This visit was horrible. We waited 1 1/2 hours for our food. Even then, the food was mediocre, which shocked me because it used to be so good. The manager offered us 2 complimentary desserts for 4 people to apologize for the wait. Really? We each didn't get our own??? Seriously ridiculous. Quite frankly, the entire meal should have been given to us at no charge. So sorry that your food and service have dropped so low. I hope you use this as an opportunity to improve in all areas of your business. Very disappointing.

Food is always great here. Tiger shrimp capellini was excellent. Grace’s flourless cake was amazing as was the key lime tart. Service was a little slow but not bad for a busy Friday night.

Always a good experience. Chris, the chef creates beautiful and delicious offerings and is always willing to come to the table to ensure each diner is satisfied. Special needs are readily accommodated. The wait staff are well informed and the service is great. The tables are a bit close together but the noise level is tolerable.

The sauce and vegetables on the rack of lamb were very good, as was the salad and rest of the meal. The rack of lamb meat itself was not quite as good as the dishes usually are at Quarter Bistro. We enjoyed the meal as usual.

The food was very good. I especially loved, loved! my yellowfin tuna. My only complaint was that I was unaware the meal was a Prix fixe as I made the reservation on open table. That would definitely have changed my mind about trying this place for the first time on Valentines Day.

My husband is a bit picky and did want any of the 3 limited selections but settled for the steak. I had hoped to introduce us to the full menu as this was our first time here.

The portion size for his steak was quite small compared to my fish - I felt like I had a slab of yellowfin that covered most of the plate center, while he had a small muffin top size of steak that was dwarfed by the 2 stalks of broccolini.

Restaurants who are on open table should be required to indicate on special occasions that their menu is prix fixe/limited for an evening. Again food was VERY good, so I would still recommend it. It’s just that paying $100 per person for food that was left uneaten was disappointing.

We had hoped for a quiet romantic evening, but the bar noise was annoying. Waiter and meal were fabulous, but it's hard to talk with the level of noise. We also noticed the hostess trying to seat 4 different groups of people that didn't like the table they were taken to---the hostess was wonderful, but it was disruptive to have all the moving around to 1-2 different tables Certainly not the fault of the restaurant...just some people were terribly high maintenance
