Had glass of ok wine while waiting for our food. Wife had saserak mussels and I had steak and frites...both... read more

Went here yesterday, wow what a great little place. Food was yummy. I got the gumbo and if was really good, and quite a large portion. Also ordered the fried chicken and was one of the best in the city. Drinks were decently priced during sour hour with live music. Kinda loud but a great atmosphere. Will be going again!... More

We tried to stop in on the suggestion of our Vancouver host, but were turned away at the door. Looked like it was hopping! Can't really speak to anything other than the importance of booking ahead of time.

Wanted to love this place but just liked it. Waitress unhappy to be at work and took it out on all her customers. Come on, you're in a service industry. Drinks good, musicians friendly and fun. Food-well. Ordered the fried chicken which was tasty but 2 of my 3 pieces were part raw. Waitress could've cared less. Not happy.

This is a different little place with a relaxed fun atmosphere. The live band were playing a touch of New Orleans rock and roll - not jazz in case you were wondering. Food was plentiful, it appeared to be cooked on the premises and the gumbo is highly recommended. Owner and bar staff all very friendly and overall a nice... More

This place reminds me of Portland, OR - BUT with a comfortable amount of people (not packed full, thankfully). They had live entertainment, which was awesome! The crowd was especially lively since the Vancouver Canucks had just won! The food is very worth the trip. The gumbo and jambalaya tastes so very good. Hearty meal. All in all - worth... More

Visited for drinks/dinner while stopping over in Vancouver. There was a 3 piece band playing jazz/blues/soul..felt like I was back in New Orleans! Waitress was very attentive, cocktails were imaginative and food includes jambalaya, spicy slaw and st Louis ribs. Great vibe, close to gastown, I would visit again.

Came here with a group of friends for the music, and was super impressed with the creative cocktails! So much so, that I had to go sit at the bar to watch the bartender Chris for a while! His use of fresh herbs and fruits to make the infused liquors and syrups for the drinks was imaginative. I loved the... More

I loved this place, so quaint and lively. Food was amazing, good sized portions and great prices. Signature cocktails were pricey but sounded really interesting.
