On my last night in New Orleans, after an exhausting conference and several business dinners, I went for a walk in the quieter section of the French Quarter and randomly chose Pierre Maspero's for a quiet dinner at the bar. The bartender was very welcoming, and told me to order the Shrimp and Grits. In the friendliest, most professional way... More

Came for dinner around 6:30 and was immediately seated. Colby was are waiter and he was very attentive and had a great attitude. The crawfish etoufee was delish. However, the seafood pot pie was pretty salty.

Food is really good here, but what really made our experience was our server. In my mind there are few people who can refer to others as "Dear" or "Sweetie" and even fewer people that can refer to themselves in the third person. But if you go here, make sure you ask for Miss Mary. A wonderful, friendly server who... More

We had brunch here upon arrival to New Orleans while waiting for our room to be ready and left so full and satisfied! We ordered two beers on draught and they were huge! So if you're a fan of beer you will love it. We were able to sample their draught beer before making a selection, which was definitely nice... More

Bartender at the Sheraton recommended and he was right. Very nice casual place with good food and service. The muffuletta was excellent and the Shrimp and grits were good according to my wife.

The waiter was friendly and attentive but the food was terrible. The reddrum fish had a bad taste, the bread was stale and the apple pomegrante cosmo was terrible.

An excellent place, centrally located where the staff is always glad to see you and they're "playful" too - a refreshing change from some more stuffy places - it's like coming home. Great food, can't go wrong on this menu. Bloody Mary's on Sundays - or any day really !

Stopped in for lunch and was pleasantly suprised! Great burger and fries and fantastic service! Hostess was bright and friendly and our waitress was great. Think her name was Sam. All around a good experience :)

Server was Peter. Food was amazing! Very authentic New Orleans. Great prices for what you get. Located three blocks off Bourbon St and a few from Canal, its definitely somewhere to go in the French Quarter.

The grand galette, spinach omelette. Yum. And a Bloody Mary that inspired me to come home and buy the ingrediants to make a 'bloody' at home. Cool atmosphere, wonderful history on the building, and a server, Terri B, who was top notch. Would come again.
