Sunday Brunch

I went here with friends today for Sunday Brunch. They take a Southern spin on brunch, by offering up gumbo, jumbalaya and more. They have the staples of french toast, bacon, eggs, watermelon, and an omelette station. Your first mimosa is free, and they give you quite a bit. The brunch itself is... read more

I came here years ago, was in town for business & loved the food. Came again for business with colleagues and while the food was delicious the service was below average. Only one waiter for porch and asked 5 times for water, then went to bar to get a pitcher and was told it's not allowed, the owner doesn't want... More

For years was our favorite place to eat. Consistently good. Sunil is a great chef. His blackening spices mix and his sauces were the best. But it's going downhill. We went about 2 months ago and what was a 4 page menu was down to one page. No more salad with the meal. The tomato-basil dressing was so good. And... More

Ordered the shrimp cocktail as an appetizer. When the shrimp arrived it was under cooked, warm, and had a horrible smell. I can not emphasis how bad the smell was, honestly I can not believe the shrimp even left the kitchen. We cancelled our order and walked out. Very disappointed. I tore up the gift certificate I bought my wife.... More

Sorry to say our visit on May 24th was a disappointing one. We were seated in back room at two seat table that was cramped against the wall which was badly beaten by previous guests who obviously kept hitting the wall with the chair. Waitress was obviously untrained, sweet but not trained in what we thought was an upscale restaurant.... More

Creative cooking has an extensive menu and huge portions. subtle flavors make an incredible meal. inside the atmosphere leaves a bit to be desired, but the quality of the food will trump it - to be sure!

I love creole world of food. Having spent two years in New Orleans many years ago. I've been reluctant to try this place because I had a bad experience 4 or 5 years ago. Well, that's two really terrible food experiences now. My gumbo was tough and the sauce was glutenous, like it hadn't been heated thru... Waitress was very... More

We were excited to find a restaurant that offered traditional New Orleans cooking. We ordered the Gumbo and Crawfish Bisque, both were very good. The Gumbo had an exceptional Flavor. We had Chicken and Shrimp Jumbalaya and Pan Blackened Chicken Mamou as out entrees. Both were full of flavor and met every expectation we had, The portion size could easily... More

Four of went here after a day of outlet shopping. It was a Monday and the place was empty. We were seated in the lounge and served by the chef/owner.
