I was close to the five rating because the food was superb. While I chose the lounge with a view of a quaint alley in the French Quarter, it may have led to pleasant but rather uninspired service. Try the Duck times three, Full of different spices and sauces on each type of the bird. Rice dressing served under wing... More

Very nice. The wait staff was very knowledgeable about the items on the menu and gave helpful advice about ordering. The food was outstanding and the service impeccable. I would recommend the restaurant to anyone visiting New Orleans.

Excellent craft cocktail list; great desserts. The dinner menu looked great too, but pricey. Looked to be well attended by locals. Tucked away on an alley in the quarter.

Better then average, but a good, not a very good. After a visit to GW Fins, it was a little disappointing. The bench seats are lumpy and uncomfortable, the staff were ok, but nothing spectacular. The portions are huge and the food was cooked fine, but for example, the filet was good, but was not rested properly and left blood... More

Food was good but won't go back. Arrived 5 minutes before our reservation on 11-14 and was told our reservation was for 12-14. After a few minutes they decided they could "fit us in" but acted like we tried to sneak in. Never once apologized for problem or any chance the mistake was theirs. When I got back to the... More

We found the Pelican Club by accident as the restaurant we wanted to go to had a line outside and with over 1000 eating places in New Orleans why queue! The food was delicious and I had an Italian inspired seafood casserole on linguine, it was sublime! Service was professional and understated.

A local bartender recommended that I try this restaurant if I wanted a good meal. He said it was one of his favorites. You must make reservations. I walked in 15 mins before my what my reservations were made for and was immediately seated even there was a long line for seating. I am guessing the did not make reservations.... More

We all had the 4 course package and every course was superb. Usually get seafood in NOLA, but tried the rack of lamb, best I've ever had. Raves for every dish. Service and atmosphere also first rate. Don't miss this hidden gem in the French Quater.

Two local couples for my husbands 50th birthday. Were seated next to an empty table set for about 20 people which should have been a red flag' They arrived they were very loud so we were moved after complaining 3 times. Food was absolutely wonderful. Baked oysters were fabulous, drum was great, duck also yummy. Of note, we do not... More
