Went for dinner with some friends who live in uptown. We were visiting. Eat where locals eat in a converted house on a quiet street. Superb meal from apps to mains to dessert. Good wine selections and not over the top.

The service was amazing, the food and wine was delicious. the menu items were unique, the atmosphere was intimiate but not too quiet and it was easy to make a reservation. Highly recommend a reservation. We had a blonde girl as our server and don't remember her name but she was fantastic.

This lovely small restaurant in the upper garden district definitely earns its place among New Orleans' best. Starting with the bread -- the best sourdough I've had this side of San Francisco, every course was marvelous. A pasta starter included prosciutto flash fried like bacon -- a first for me and oh so good. I'd never had Cobia before but... More

Deciding on a restaurant in New Orleans for an anniversary celebration is no easy task, yet we couldn't be happier or more enthusiastic in hindsight with our selection.... This slightly out of the way establishment in Uptown NOLA is truly exceptional in all aspects of the dining experience from the brilliant and accommodating service to the extraordinary cuisine. Words cannot... More

My husband and I loved every aspects of this charming French neighborhood restaurant in the Garden District. The atmosphere is so charming and intimate and owner and staff so gracious. I had the red snapper special of the day and my husband had the grouper and both were so excellent in preparation and presentation. We throughly enjoyed the chocolate torte... More

This was nothing special in matter of fact the food was terrible, very expensive and limited street parking. If I were you looking for a quant, romantic resturant pick some place else. The food was very small portions with hefty price tags and the food was not good. Overall this place should be embaraced for what they put out

This place is a great find. That is, if you find it. Which added to the experience in my opinion. Who doesn't love a great little restaurant that's out of view? It's a small place but I don't think it really took away from the experience. My wife and I went here recently and came away amazed. All I can... More

I joined a group of 5 others for a business meal on a Wednesday night. I had a superb seasonal chilled cucumber soup with a touch of crab meat as a garnish. It was a beautiful key lime green, perfect consistency and was awash in garlic, which I loved. Others at the table ordered the highly rated duck confit salad... More

One of the best meals we have ever had. Started with scallops, then okra/pickled quail egg/heirloom tomato salad, followed by duck breast and beet gnocchi, finished with chocolate hazelnut terrine. Every bite was amazing. What a wonderful experience. Decor was a little stark, felt like eating in a hotel lobby but who cares when the food is this incredible.
