Had a great dinner with girlfriends. I asked for a gin martini and they suggested a certain brand, then kept them coming all night! Food was delicious, and it was fun talking to the chef about the meal. Great experience and the friendly service and attitude made it that much more fun. Don't be shy: ask questions about your meal... More

We had a lovely meal here last weekend. Atmosphere is conservative with a certain charm. The wine list is extensive with something for everyone. Service is impeccable, but not stuffy. We started with a truffled beef tar tar, very nice, and a corn cappuccino (a chowder), really tasty. I was looking forward to the seafood bouillabaisse. I can only give... More

Beautiful restaurant and bar inside of the Royal Sonesta hotel. We were staying in the hotel so we entered through the gorgeous courtyard. The menu is fabulous. Don't eat before you go because if you are anything like us it will be so hard to choose what NOT to have as everything sounded great. It was better than that. Foie... More

Everything was perfect from the moment we stepped in the restaurant to the moment we left. We were greeted warmly by the host when we arrived. Since we were early, we had a glass of wine at the bar then were escorted to our table by our outstanding server, Troy. He guided us through the menu and pointed out his... More

This is not a place that you want to pop in for a quick dinner. The service is very good, but they take their time between courses, and that is fine if you aren't in a hurry -- which we weren't. The menu was extensive. My husband and I shared an appetizer and both had an entrée. We thought everything... More

The food here was beautifully presented and very good. Of our two servers, one was great and the other seemed to be in a hurry to get us out. Unfortunate, because most of the staff was exceptional, but we left feeling very rushed. I discovered (too late, we had finished dining) that there is a tasting menu available upon request...that...

The Service and Food was Exceptional!! I gave it an overall rating of Very Good because the reservations were frustrating. We had to go at 5:30, since that is all that they had available, but by the time we left at 7:00 the place was still empty. We could have easily come at 6:00 or 6:30 without causing issues for...

This was hands down, one of the best meals we've had in NOLA. Every dish was delicious and beautifully presented. The menu had such a large variety that it was difficult to choose. The desert was also excellent. It's great for couples or a larger party as there are some private rooms.

Great meal and service! My wife and I went for for my b-day and we're treated like royalty! Service was on point, especially Jeffery, Liz and Alford. Want to give a special thanks to Ryan. You are a true asset to the restaurant!
