Called and asked what was the wait time, I was told there was no wait time. I informed the call taker that I need a table for three and I would be there in five minutes. I was at the Fairmont Hotel when I made the call. He said OK. We arrived five minuted later and was informed the wait... More

January 4th holiday party at NOLA. A very nice time had by all! Special thanks to our bartenders Shane and Sean who attended to our needs, and professionally worked to make the evening a success. Again, THANKS NOLA!

We stumbled upon this restaurant as we were looking for a place to have dinner, having just arrived at Pittsburgh. We entered and stood around waiting for quite some time, since the hostess was no where to be seen. As the line of parties waiting to be seated increased (we were second in line), one of the bartenders went in... More

Really crowded and fun, great jazz band. Had a drink and kept moving since we could not get a table or spot at the bar. Will get back there when not crazy.

Our server, Cody knowledgeable, helpful with selections and made for fun experience. Appetizers tasty and dinner selections enough for all 6 of us and our varied tastes. Cajun martini very good and complimented my dinner selection.

I went with a friend for dinner. Both of our meals were "fine" - nothing you could not get anywhere else, and nothing special that added a New Orleans flare. There are many places to eat in Market Square in Pittsburgh - NOLA is fine for happy hour, as the drinks are discounted, and the fried green tomato appetizer is... More

We were glad to find a New Orleans style restaurant in Pittsburgh! Some of the creamiest grits up north! Great entertainment too!

We stopped in for an appetizer at the bar. Great friendly and attentive staff. Fun decor. Good people watching. Great wine selections. Interesting food which was good but I do not like bell peppers and I forgot Louisiana food tends to have them, so i was disappointed.

I enjoyed the cuisine with a Southern twist. Not too spicey, but enough kick to make it interesting. Had the quail stuffed with oysters on rice and the gumbo as well as a sandwich the day before. Their craft beers were also good and the staff knowledgeable. Service is swift and efficient, but it can get busy and sometimes noisy... More
