The Irish coffee was the best I have ever had. The service was friendly and the food good. The Shepherd's pie was very good. Super location right on the Charles Street Streetcar line.

Great service; food more Americanized Irish than Irish. It was good, but I suppose I expected more because of the hype on the chef.

Nice place and a fun crowd that made it too noisy to even have a conversation. We were there on Trivia night.

We were cold from a day walking around New Orleans. Very warm and inviting. This was very close to our hotel. Had the short ribs and fish and chips. It was to die for!! We ended up going back the next day for brunch. 2 for 1 Mimosa is the icing on the cake!

After going to several not so clean restaurants this was a nice surprise.. We ate dinner and then did brunch the next morning and enjoyed both very much. The food was wonderful, the wait staff friendly and very helpful with the menu.

This was the best good we had while in NOLA. Prices weren't that bad. Two of us ate with drinks and tip = $50. I took away a star because there was live music the night we visited, it was so loud we couldn't talk, at all! It was good music, just way too loud.
