Simply, a true 4+star national restaurant.

The best gourmet restaurant I know located between Atanta and New Orleans. Very good wine list. Great service, excellent presentation, and an unhurried quiet atmosphere. Good for business lunches/dinners as well as romantic celebrations. Expensive - certainly by local standards. Not concentrated... read more

Good for business lunches/dinners as well as romantic celebrations. Expensive - certainly by local standards. Not concentrated on "Southern" foods or local favorites.

Very Dark and dingy. Did not look clea. I ordered vegetable soup. I believe the cook spilled a bag of salt in it, it was terrible along with the other food. Blue cheese dressing had no taste. Tried to pay with Visa cash card and they would only accept $10.00 of it.

At last Hattiesburg has a nice (very) dark bar with an imaginative drinks list and small plate food, but I miss the piano; music is canned and a bit too loud. Service was smooth when we were last there. We'll go back on occasion. It seems to still need some settling-in.

Purple Parrot/Crescent City Grill/The Mahogany Bar are in one building owned by the same restauranteur. My son and I ate dinner at The Mahogany Bar on a Friday night because the Crescent City Grill had a wait and it was the same menu. Bar was a bit loud for conversation, but it was fine especially since the basketball games were... More

We had a birthday celebration there on Saturday with about 15 diners. The staff was friendly but not very attentive. The crab and corn bisque had a weird taste; the salads were fair. Some ordered their $48 ribeye... not worth it, although it was tasty. The duck special had to be some of the worst duck I have ever had... More

Restaurants in close proximity of a university are usually of the franchise variety, but not in this case. I had a delightful Veal Shank dish making me want to come back for more. Pass on the salads and try the incentive appetizers.

It usually is a good restaurant but last time I went the service was very slow and forgetful. The bar was full and apparently affected the service in the restaurant area. It is a pity that it ad to be like that. Otherwise, all good.

First off let me say that even though I have lived in this area most of my adult life, this was the first time that I have been to this restaurant. When I started planning something special for our 20th anniversary it just kinda popped into my head. So one week before I made a reservation and let the Hostess... More

A couple of concerns first- in the table waiting area the ceiling tile is water stained, not what you would expect from an upscale dining venue. Also felt seating took long, we waited 5 minutes and the place was empty. Now to the food- we had grouper, Mahi mahi, tuna and black drum-- all were excellent! The house salad with... More
