The bread was excellent and the gumbo a great start...the corn/chicken chowder was tasty as well though a little on the sweet side. And that goes to the heart of my concern. The sides were especially sweet...butter was laced with honey, sweet potatoes were almost a dessert, even the greens were sweet. There were plenty of bottles of hot sauce... More

This was my first time to this establishment but I was very impressed with the food. I purchased the shrimp po'boy sub and it was very tasty. I wish I would have purchased two so I could have one on the road. It was made with a cajun sauce and was very fulfilling.

A New Orleans themed restaurant with mainly Cajun flavors. Being the adventurious, I started with a bowl of their gumbo, followed by a blacken, Cajun blue burger: both outstanding. I absolutely would return again for a meal. My wife the less adventurious type had a salad without Cajun flavoring that she rated at very good. The area of the restaurant... More

Having been to New Orleans twice, I hoped that I would be reminded of the flavours and I was not disappointed! I had the Carb free Jambalaya, which meant it had all the usual meats and shrimps and vegetables without the rice. It came with a bowl of soup, and of course, I chose the gumbo. Gumbo was good, would... More

The foods is second to none. The service is very good. I tried the one of their pulled pork dishes and I wassimply blown away. The one dish that everybody was recommending was the chicken on a waffle so that is what I will try next time. The one thing to improve would be some music ambiance. At one point... More

We paid over $30 to park and would do it again for the opportunity to have lunch at Heaven on Seven. Wonderful selection of Cajun/creole food as well as American food for those whose taste buds are not yet burned to a crisp. The etouffee of the day was a LARGE portion with wonderful stuff in it. There are dozens... More

I hadn't been to Heaven on Seven in a long, long time but jumped at the chance to go recently. After finally getting to the right location (more on that in a minute) it was all as I remembered. From the wall covered with hot sauces to the dozen hot sauce choices on our table to the wonderful menu and... More

My wife has been looking forward to our visit here for a month. The cornbread and honey butter is awesome. My wife had the red beans and rice which was absolutely delicious. I had the chicken breast with mashed potatoes, steamed veggies and cream gravy. Add a little of the jump up and kiss me hot sauce and you may... More

At first glance we were excited - a whole wall of different hot sauces available, and many of them on the tables. At second glance, the second wall - gallon jugs of mayonnaise and kero syrup. And trust me, they're using both in almost everything on the menu. Fat laden, carb laden, sugar laden, and as much fried as they... More

I cannot help but agree with the other reviewers. I had the 1 - 2 - 3 trio of soups. Gumbo, cream of chicken and turtle which I love. Starter portions of red beans & rice and crab cakes. More than enough for me!! Good quality, very attentive staff and I didn't feel rushed which I have found in some... More
