We visited today and we were delighted with the ambience of the courtyard garden. The food was terrific and there was a great selection of wines. The staff were friendly and helpful. My only criticism was that our entrees were brought to the table before we had finished our starters but this was soon resolved. Wish we'd found the place... More

This is a hidden gem across from Bourbon Orleans Hotel. Go eat in the courtyard. The wine list is terrific and the food is fantastic.

Waiter very nice, recommended cocktail not that nice. The oysters a must. The shrimp with Remoulade very good. Don't go for the gumbo.

Thanks for coming in. Glad you enjoyed our food and service. I'm sorry our gumbo was not to your liking. I can assure you our gumbo doesn't come from a can. All of our food is made completely from scratch. Our chef spends an hour just making the roux for the gumbo. More

My husband and I stumbled across this restaurant and bar when looking for a quick meal. The food was out of this world. Try the Crab Cakes - amazing; and the seared scallops with mushroom and wild rice. As true to their name they have a wonderful range of wines. Our wait staff were attentive, informative and generally just nice... More

Let the wife and daughter go shopping and people watching. Took a stroll to see what I could find. First found Cresent City Cigar Shop where the owner Armando turned me on to a great smoke, I asked him where I should go to enjoy it, by chance right next door is this hidden gem. Interior patio with ferns, palm... More
