In an area known for the food, it's hard to stand out, but this place does. Amazingly tender ribeye steak, cooked to perfection, then with the Louisiana shrimp topping was beyond exceptional! If I had gone here earlier in my trip would have had it 3-4 more times, it;s that good. Service and atmosphere was fine, but go for the... More

We truly enjoy this place. It's conventionally located off 210 loop on the south side service road. There is plenty of parking. Reservations are recommended, but often you can walk up (esp midweek). Steaks are too quality and well prepared and seasoned. We've had a variety of seafood, and it's all been good. Gumbo, as an appetizer, is quite good... More

No one can ever claim they had bad service or a bad meal from here unless they are trying to get it for free. Had a wonderful dinner, ribeye with the large lump crab WOW husband had soft shell crab. Everything was perfect and Holly our service was outstanding! Every time we have a great time.

Client recommended this restaurant when I was on a business trip to Lake Charles. Nice selection of steaks and seafood with some conventional appetizers and some with a touch of Cajun. I had the red-beans/rice/sausage appetizer and it was tasty but could have been a bit spicier. The small rib-eye steak was delicious - done perfectly. Decent choice of wines... More

Great food, great service, good prices. Air conditioner is the best in town, always cold in this place in the summer. One of my favorite places to eat steak in Lake Charles. It is always cooked just right, tender and tastes greats. Wait staff is good, place is clean. Local favorite for steaks. Parking is ok, have to go early... More

Based on a client's suggestion we dined at Harlequin for lunch. Upon arrival we received a warm greeting from the manager and were promptly seated. The restaurant is comfortable and friendly. We started our meal with the best Crawfish Bisque I have ever had. The lunch special was a grilled Redfish and I enjoyed every bite. The asparagus was tender... More

Great steak, Appetizers so good. Can never decide which one to select. Seafood is also very good.Great place to go for a special occasion. If you want to save a little money go for lunch.

We have received a gift certificate for the past three years to this restaurant. Last year we noticed that the food was pretty disappointing. We went last night. The first thing was we ordered a appetizer of the crab trio...it is "market price". When we started eating it, it was FULL of shells. We couldn't eat it. When the waitress... More

This is a hidden jewel in Lake Charles. Skip the overpriced dinners at La Berge and the mediocre buffets. Treat yourself without spending ridiculous money. The steaks are so tender and juicy. The bread appetizer with shaved Parmesan dipping sauce was to die for. The crab cake - yummy, yummy, yummy. Finally the atmosphere was romantic and beautiful, especially the... More

The fillet mignon here is excellent. Good quality meat, prepared perfectly. I did try and order the Ahi Tuna on 2 occasions only to be dissapointed in that they didn't have any!!
