perfect service

I had the luxury of eating at this resturant about 4 times and for two people you bare looking at about $30.00 please ask for Sarah as your waitress and you will not be disapointed she is the best waitress I have had in years

I was expecting a little more based off the crowd of people waiting to be seated. If you're planning to go with a group, make sure to get there early but if you're by yourself, you shouldn't have a problem getting seated at the bar. In terms of food, I went with the croque madame. Don't get me wrong, it... More

Good food, fast, and reasonably priced. I ate here one morning while at a conference in NOLA. I sat at the bar and the bartender was very attentive, but if you get a chill easily be warned that the A/C system blows right at the people at the bar! I ended up requesting a cup of coffee with my OJ... More

I was very impressed with how the Ruby slipper was run. There was a one hour wait at 11 AM on a Sunday morning. They had a designated line so that people waiting could get drinks. They promptly called out name after name and the wait seemed to go by very quickly. The food was delicious and they had a... More

I did not eat at the restaurant, but several of those with us did. They had rave reviews. There was also a line out the door for both Breakfast and Lunc.

We were surprised by the unique dishes on the menu, which may not be so unique if you are a local. We decided to order the bananas foster french toast and double chocolate chip pancakes and split them so we could try both. I was disappointed that the "double chocolate" pancakes only had chocolate chips and chocolate syrup on top... More

Came in for an early breakfast at about 8:30 AM on Sunday before a day of sightseeing. My party of one was seated immediately at the bar; the place was already full though and there was a line outside when I left. There are a lot of delicious-sounding items on the menu, but I don't like eggs so that really... More

We went here by our hotel recommendations. Arrived at 10 and was packed. Had to wait outside. I understand the staff is super busy but they are somewhat rude kicking you out to wait: we wanted to buy some mimosas to wait outside. One of my friends stayed and we went out to wait. They offered to sit us outside... More

Found this place thanks to the reviews and oh boy were they spot on. The food was excellent and the staff was very attentive. You could definitely see why there was a line out the door and around the corner. If you are coming to New Orleans, you need to stop in there for breakfast your stomach will thank you... More

Waited 40 minutes but once seated was served very quickly, Great Bellini's & bloody Mary's. The poached egg over hashbrowns was delicious.
