    We had the Wagyu Steak, the elk and the cheese plate and we're very happy with our selections. The atmosphere was very casual and eclectic - Space Balls was playing on the TV over the bar and the music was not what I would have anticipated. The service was a bit slow and it was a little chilly inside, but the tenderness of the elk rib made up for all of this. A1 steak sauce on the Wagyu was a bit odd... Would probably leave that off next time.

    We visited for my 40th birthday as I was a huge fan of Chef Isaac from Top Chef. I hate to say that, overall, we were disappointed. There seemed to be some confusion between the wait staff. They brought us someone else’s order and then took it back and brought it to the other table. It sat at our table long enough for us all to take pics. The only reason my friends hadn’t already eaten it is because we were waiting for the rest of the order. I would have been even more upset if I’d been at the other table. They seemed to still be confused as to where our actual food was, but we got it…eventually. Let’s talk about the food. The small plates and appetizers were fantastic. Exactly what I was hoping for and we all loved them. I cannot recommend the cracklins and corn dogs enough. The large plates were a different story. My friend and I both ordered the wagyu, medium rare. I’ve had wagyu before and this wasn’t it. It was so tough and half of it was fat. It was SO salty. My friends didn’t have the fat but it was still tough and salty. I couldn’t eat much of it. A friend had the pork chop and it was good. My husband had the confit chicken thighs and this was also very good.

    Food as always was excellent. Service is usually quite good, but today it was quite poor. We were offered dirty share plates, a not so nice server and the wrong type of sausage came out, but we didnt have the heart to send it back. This is an excellent restaurant under normal circumstances.

    Started with a brown derby to drink and the torchon of fois gras. Stellar! Lovely glass of red wine and Mustard-Crusted Rack of Elk for the main course. Damn, so good! Finished with salted caramel ice cream (so rich and creamy!) and another brown derby because … well, just because. Great casual vibe and AMAZING food! What more can you ask for? Highly recommend trying this spot.

    Toups is one of our go to-s in New Orleans- great food, great drinks, always an interesting wine list with lots of options for all prices. Every time we go we Have To get the cracklings and the hogs head cheese because they are simply the best. We missed having the bone marrow appetizer (it wasn’t on the menu last night!) but we’re totally happy with our entrees of lamb neck, wagyu steak, duck breast and couvillon. Can’t recommend this place enough and can’t wait to go back!.

    Celebrating 22nd anniversary of our first date. Toups has been on our “to do” list for a long time. So glad we finally got to try it. We had several appetizers and small plates and shared the rack of elk as a main course. Portion size on the main course would have been disappointing if I hadn’t had all the other stuff but everything was delicious.

    As I read in other reviews, service is lacking. Not a welcoming atmosphere. Although the bartender was friendly. We had the marinated claws and the meat board. Both were good. We had every intention of eating entrees but were too full. We opted to go straight for dessert which was, no joke, the worst brownie I have ever had.
