Great Experience!

We had lunch reservations, and were seated immediately. I was disappointed that the fried chicken was removed from the lunch menu, and asked the waiter if I could still order it-milestone birthday and all. He quickly talked to the maitre d and the maitre d talked to the chef. My wish was... read more

This was our first meal in New Orleans, and it was very good. We felt a bit underdressed, but we were there at the end of lunch service so it wasn't crowded. Drinks went down too easily! I had the bbq shrimp and grits--delicious, and a little out-of-the-box. Daughter had the NOLA burger, which came out far too rare the... More

Food was delicious, service was good but always room for improvement. Save room and get something for each course. Although all seafood is delicious, meat entrees for this place is a must.

The best thing about this restaurant is the service. I ordered the fried chicken which was just ok. It came with a side of orchiette and pepper jack cheese. It was watery and flavorless. I expected so much out of a restaurant owned by Emeril. I will never eat here again.

We had lunch at NOLA and it was the best meal of our trip! Service, food and cocktails were superb. I'm so glad we stopped there during our stay in New Orleans.

A really good restaurant which disappointed due to poor service the food quality in the main was excellent the slow roasted duck exceptional. But slow service of the wine set a trend especially when the white wine was warm and no ice bucket created the wrong impression. Further by the failure to open the red wine meant further delay.

I had dinner with a friend around 7 on a Thursday night. The upstairs was crowded and very noisy. The staff was very attentive but performed in a rushed, robotic fashion. The food arrived just warm but was okay. I must say the Yukon gold potatoes were delicious. The salmon was enjoyable and the sauce was superb. I really liked... More

Weird experience. Food is rather good as well the atmosphere but bill was much highier than we excpected with 14 dollars for 'Total Liquor' that we haven't drunk. I'm afraid they behave in a different way with non-American tourists.

What a poor excuse for a fine dinning restaurant. Waiter was sloppy looking and could not understand what he said when he talked, no follow up, handed us menues and asked what we wanted. SPent more time talking with staff than waiting on guest no knowdledge of menu or follow up on meal, drinks or offer dessert. Got the famous... More
