I am always a little suspicious by celebrity restaurants as they tend to try to get by on the name of the chef and not the meal but this one doesn't do that. The atmosphere was upscale but friendly. The food was terrific. One of the few places in the French Quarter where it would make sense to make a... More

We picked this restaurant based on the 'best nearby' and are very pleased with our choice. We walked in without a reservation on Tuesday night and were sat immediately on the second level. The decor was sophisticated, white linens, dressy servers but very welcoming feel. Server, I forgot his name, made recommendations saying he 'knew what we really wanted' and... More

What can you say about this establishment that is a staple in New Orleans for years. Nicely prepared foods with a flare for the unexpected. Service is awesome at this white table clothed restaurant.

This is your typical Emeril restaurant! Great food, a bit pricey...but worth it! The service is fabulous! My only con is that it can get a bit noisy!

The hostess in front (wished I knew her name) was truly gracious, bubbly and a highlight if the dinner experience, as she would stop by the table every time seating parties to say hello again. Eric our waiter was personable too. Here's the thing.... The food? Not all that. The stuffed chicken wings outstanding, the sweet mashed potatoes, right up... More

The Garlic Crusted Drum from here is the best piece of fish I've ever eaten. Also, make sure to try Miss Hay's Stuffed Chicken Wings, the BBQ Gulf Shrimp, and the Boudin Balls. This place lives up to all the hype! You def get what you pay for. Awesome

This town has so many creative chefs, look beyond the chains. We asked for anchovies for our Caesar salad and they didn't have any. This tells me that the dressing is bottled and not house made. The veggie pizza should be removed the menu , biggest flop ever. The shrimp as the appetizer I recommend and the salmon entree very... More
