This an old time favorite when we worked in the Loop and found this branch of Heaven convenient to our schedule. Faced with an impending large parking fee, we asked for fast service and we were done before we knew it. The Gumbo was as outstanding as we remembered and the serving of etoufee with shrimp, andouille, and gator was... More

Okay. We lived on the north side of Houston for six years and I have to say: man I miss the Louisiana cook'n! Not to worry, Heaven on Seven will fix me right up and it's just like I'm on Jackson square strolling toward the bayou. This place is fun. The food is always fresh, with the right amount of... More

Broiled oysters, red beans and rice, gumbo, po boys - if you love N'awlins food, this is the place for you. Service was super fast and friendly. Full liquor bar. Food was hot and flavorful. I will come back here again and again.

We were taken here intially as part of a food tour, but once we'd had a taste we knew that we'd be back. Excellant food at a good price.

I've been here so many times, I can't believe I haven't written a review. I have even visited a couple of the other locations; though I don't know if they are still open. This site is perfectly located for me; the parking deck is across the street and it is a stone's throw from the Magnificent Mile (about a block).... More

The location overall is amazing! I went here on several occasions. I really love how the sports bar is situated. A great amount of space for eating, playing billiards, etc. I realy enjoyed the billiards portion myself :). The food was very reasonable in cost. Not to mention, the selection was amazing also. Overall, 4 stars!

Heaven on Seven is a favorite and the original restaurant on Wabash is iconic. They still serve the same signature dishes and are probably the sole Cajun restaurant for miles and they deserve a trip. The decor, atmosphere, and drinks are also fun. In recent years, they haven't been as crowded as in previous years and I'm not sure why...the... More

Very good selection of creole food. Prices are two to three dollar signs. Nice atmosphere and several daily special offerings.

I went for a quick bite before a meeting and had a corn muffin and jumbo. Both were very good and I would recommend it. I was one of only three parties in the restaurant and it was a nice quiet place for a bite.
