Went here for drinks and apps with friends. Jason was an excellent bartender. All the staff were friendly. I recommend the meatballs and also check out their old fashioned made with sazerac rye. Beautiful building with great food/drinks that makes for a classic New Orleans experience.

When you start with Tattingers and French Fries it has to be good. Very simple and elegant. A nice departure from creole heavy restaurants and steakhouses that all parade as upper tier in the quarter. Great presentation and good combinations of seafood and the salads are awesome. Will always be a stop for us in New Orleans from now on

Everything on the menu is wonderfully prepared, service is excellent and ambience is old Quarter. The bar is excellent and often mentioned as a place NO bartenders go for a drink.

I enjoyed my meal but it was not exceptional to the extent that anything stood out. My Cobia filet was well prepared and the salad was, a salad. I was non-plus see by the chocolate pudding. Again good, but not great!

Every time I come here I get the fish special and it's always great. I thought the shaved Brussel sprout salad sounded strange but I love it so. There are some nice wines and cocktails and the desserts are interesting.

Great service. Very average food. Amazed it has ranked so high on TA. So dark inside I literally could not see my food to cut it. Super noisy. Did not know about patio or would have sat there but even at that, not worth a return visit.

So first off the food is absolutely delicious. One of the best burgers I've ever had but that's saying something. The one issue we found was with the hostess who gave us a serious attitude because we were a party of 8 and "obviously" we should've known better. That's a bad way to start your dinner.

Came based on recommendations from a friend. Made reservations same day and asked for a patio table. When we arrived there was not a patio table available. Our table was not ready and it was suggested that we go to the bar because we were early (5 minutes) so we did. Just as we ordered our table was ready (sigh).... More

Found this restaurant while searching on the web for new places to eat in the French Quarter. I have been going there for 25 years and have eaten at almost every restaurant/café there. This was a real treat, small, just a few tables, great bar, and a beautiful eating area outside in the back courtyard. Our table in the courtyard... More
