Texture and taste was supreme. Next came a rational New air leans Oyster soup. It was absolutely fantastic. Next was a craw dad... More

We dined here for my birthday and were not disappointed. The service was sharp and the food was magnificent. We had the degustation menu and it was all executed like a well oiled machine. The guinea hen dish was divine and my banana dessert luscious. Loved it.

Ok let me qualify - this is a well established restaurant with a celebrity chef so it has to be measured against the restaurants in the same league - therefore I unreservedly give it 3 of 5 stars.

I've thought about the best way to approach this review of a restaurant I had really come to love over the years. I have had so many remarkable experiences over such a significant stretch of time, that August had long since entrenched itself on my short list of highly recommended restaurants in New Orleans. In short, I had issues with... More

My husband and I had dinner here to celebrate our 10 year anniversary on a recent trip to NOLA. I had what was one of the best meals of my life and am still fantasizing about much of it. The service was absolutely stellar - very attentive and professional without being stuffy. The food...oh the food. We started with the... More
