I would go back just for the lobster dumplings! Really though the service was great both leading up to our reservation when they let us know the ac would be operating at 50% and therefore a more relaxed dress code was permitted and during the meal itself. The mains were yummy too but honestly it's all about the lobster dumplings.... More

The best restaurant in the French quarter, food was excellent, service was great too. We were tucked away at the back of the restaurant, it would have been better to be in the main restaurant part but it still didn't deter us as the food was so good

This place is to die for. The food is incredible. It is a must stop. Very pricey though. Be ready to empty your wallet. My recommended courses: start with the Lobster dumplings and Crab potstickers, then have the Caesar salad (homemade croutons are amazing) and take their famous main course Scalibut (scallops and halibut) to finish off. The ice cream... More

I was in town for business and this place came highly recommended by a local colleague. Also saw it was ranked #1 on trip advisor. That and the convenient, walkable location (5-10 min from the JW Marriott) made me decide to give it a whirl. Solid place and menu was surprisingly reasonable for a fine dining restaurant. I had a...

This restaurant is excellent in all respects - quality of food, service, atmosphere, and value. While fish, all of it fresh, is the main fare, other offerings are available. If asked what I would recommend for improvement, I would not have an answer.

My wife and I dined here on our first night in the French Quarter. I am not sure that we will find a better place to eat here. The service was top notch and anything we needed was promptly taken care of. The food was absolutely delicious. The wine list was huge and several local beers were available as well.

Excellent food as well as wine pairings. Atmosphere and service excellent. Would recommend to any who like seafood. Of course, besides seafood, steaks are prepared to perfection.
