We called for a reservation and went for brunch. The staff were professional and very nice from start to finish. We had been to a wine dinner upstairs the night before so we wanted a light meal. We had a creative autumn amuse bouche with butternut squash served in an egg shell in an egg cup. I had the gnocchi... More

I highly recommend this restaurant! This was the best French dinner I have ever had. Each dish was a taste sensation and the service was incredible (we were served by Robert, who described each dish is such great detail and looked after us all night). The gnocchi just melts in your mouth and the trout was some flavoursome! To finish... More

After reading all the great reviews we were excited to get a chance to see what it was all about. Everything was great (location, ambience, service, appetizers....) until the main course arrived. My entrée of gulf fish with rice was way overcooked, tiny(about 3 square inches and less than half an inch thick, with the skin on) and the "rice"... More

I greatly admire John Besh, his food accomplishments, and more importantly, all he does for his community. I could not wait to dine @ august. October 17 , 2014, We had a 1:30 reservation, arrived on time, dressed in appropriate attire, per their recommendation. Our server tried to push the price fixe menu on us,. When I inquired about different... More

Heard good things about the restaurant and the chef from friends of mine. When I got there, those dishes were not on the menu anymore, so I tried something different (no big deal, I can adapt). The atmosphere and the setting were nice and the waiter was great. I chose the duck and it was good but not great and... More

I will admit that this was not the very best food, overall, that we had in our week in New Orleans; but the combination of service, décor and food put it in a tie for the lead. The amuse bouche was one of the best things I had all week. It was a pumpkin mousse on top of a bread... More

I was in town for a conference Oct 12 and went out to dinner with friends. The whole experience was incredible. The food was outstanding. I had A TASTING OF FARMERS MARKET VEGETABLES and the gnocchi. Everything was prepared perfect and the presentation was beautiful. The gnocchi was light and fluffy and had truffle shavings on top. I had two... More

Clearly John Besh has got this perfected...service, ambience and food are amazing. Formal but not stiff. His food is out of this world. I had the foie gras 3 ways and my husband had his pear salad as an appetizer....phenomenal. I had the crab gnocchi with truffles( an appetizer as a main) again remarkable. for dessert we had the pastry... More

The food here is excellent and the service and ambience was excellent as well! Definitely lived up to the name. I went with a group of 7 people for a conference and one of our dining members eats here regularly when he comes to town. We absolutely enjoyed every course and the wines suggested by the sommelier were excellent as... More

By now, everyone knows that Chef John Besh has a string of restaurants in New Orleans. We were anxiously awaiting our visit to August and came away disappointed. Perhaps it was the inattention, as the maitre d' pointed out that there were no specials, "just what was on the menu". That was fair enough as the menu was very full.... More
