Mint Julips!

The bartender here is amazing! He is knowledgeable, skilled, and funny. (The Barback was very attentive as well.) I always stop here for a mint julip. They are STRONG! And I have never found a better one anywhere. It is worth the stop in.

We were here in the days following Mardi Gras. We had some of the best mixed drinks of our life. Try the Pimm's cup, among others.

Had the crab cake appetizer and rabbit gumbo as appetizers. Main entrée was the King Fish. It is cooked and served on a salt block. It was excellent, great piece of fish with exceptional flavor. Will definitely return!

First of all, the stone faced hostesses at the door acted like they were guarding Fort Knox and did not have a friendly welcome as we entered. It was a cold evening so we stayed warm in the bar until our table was ready. There was an empty table that we had in our sight for over 30 minutes. When... More

We decided to dine at this location after having passed by the bar several times on our various walks to and from places from the Hotel Monteleon. We were here on Super Bowl night and although tables with views of the bar were at a premium, we were only passively interested and figured that we would end up back at... More

This place for being in the heart of the FrenchQuarter sort of sets it self apart by being different. The cocktails a Great and the interior is dark and sort of what you would expect. The space is a little disjointed but not uncomfortably so. The waitstaff is FRIENDLY just a little exuberant for my preference but I'm sure most... More

The kingfish restaurant's menu was not large or complex but the food offered was intriguing. A good selection of local delights prepared suburbly. Alligator wings were delicious as well as the golden beet salad. We also had the rabbit and the cassoulet. Service was again friendly and welcoming. A great meal!

We had a 12:30 lunch reservation for six. We were seated, had our order taken and received our appetizers in a reasonable amount of time. We didn't receive our entrees until 3:00pm!! Almost all the other tables were empty by that time! The worst part was that we never got a believable reason why our order was held up. Three... More

We came during marti gras, and though they were busy we got seated right away and got started with alligator wings which were soooo stinking good! The sauce it comes in is to die for. I got Bbq shrimp for dinner which was amazing! A must go to!
