    Noisy surroundings and a somewhat distracted waiter took away from our appreciation of the food which was very good. Would still recommend. Could just have been an off night.

    Lovely place, atmosphere, and people. Service was careful and patient. And when it came to the food, the only way I could possibly describe it, beyond savory. We had Rillons, Porkchops, & crab claws along with some wine. I wanted to try more but could only get seated around the end of the night. Nonetheless, It’s truly a meat-lovers paradise, and lives up to its name.

    The meat platter was overall quite tasty and well executed. Loved the pate! Only thing that I couldn’t finish was the pork belly bites, there was too many and they were a tad too salty for my liking. I thought there could have been something better on the plate than fried pork belly; it’s been done 1000 times before. Loved the drinks I had too. I had some sort of strawberry cocktail which was wonderful, not too sickly sweet like most fruity cocktails are.

    One of the best meals I’ve had in a long time. I went with two friends and we had a great time. Wait staff was friendly and attentive. Everything we ate was incredible. The food is rich and well-seasoned and unique. My one complaint is we ate on the patio and they didn’t have heaters.

    Excellent service and menu was interesting and diverse. Really enjoyed the food. Specifically the 1/2 smoked duck was huge, almost too much, with the dark meat way more moist than the breast. Hard to get it both right. Seafood and pork dishes were amazing and really enjoyed. The foie gras and accompaniments were amazing only let down by the slightly meagre and stale bread; and a charge for additional bread (even more stale) when the dish was $30++ already. Fresh baguette would make this dish sing. Great place for good food and drinks. .

    I have been looking forward to trying Toup’s for about two years after discovering Isaac on Instagram. That being said, it was definitely hyped up in my head. While I was only able to stop in for lunch it did not disappoint. I enjoyed the crispy pig ears and burger cooked to perfection (in my case medium rare). We also shared the pickle plate that was fantastic. So many unique pickled styles and options. The staff was very helpful and friendly and since we went mid day it was fairly quiet in the restaurant. Enjoyed the atmosphere and the fat washed cocktail (riff on an old fashioned).

    Usually a great place but failed today. My hamburger was super salty (the bacon) and my friend’s chicken sandwich was way too spicy (and she likes spice) - cornbread was great as usual. Noise level was very high! This place could use some acoustic tiles and maybe some pelts or curtains on the walls!

    Although not under the restaurants control, we were placed in a large room with a party of 10 to 12 including 4 to 5 small kids, and the noise level was nearly unbearable.

    We had an incredible evening at Toups. The food and drinks were delicious. Our server went above and beyond. I am gluten intolerant and she made sure to identify everything I could and could not eat. We were also celebrating a birthday and they brought out a special plate to end the meal. We will definitely be back.

    The wait staff was amazing. The food just wasn’t good. We had the boudin, meat board, breakfast plate with pork chop and shrimp and grits. Most everything was over fried to the point of being dry and difficult to eat. Maybe we just caught them on a bad day but probably won’t be back.

    Fabulous lunch! Have been trying to go here for the past three years. It lived up to expectations— yes, there’s lots of pickles. I’d challenge you to find better Dirty Rice. The Cracklins were a real treat. Over-indulged on those things so couldn’t finish The Toups’ Burger but it was exactly as billed. Wife had the Red Fish sandwich and was pleased. Out from the press of The Quarter, it’s such a delightful spot.

    Very disappointed in service, first server was very abrupt and rude. Said she was coming off a long shift after negative attitude. When it changed didn’t get much service at all, forgot my drink until after end of meal and all dishes cleared. Food was ok but not the level we thought, 2 of 5 of us didn’t eat their food due to covered in sauces that were not well liked.
