Shrimp Remoulade, House Salad, and a Large Ribeye 16 oz. Having a relatively sparse menu, I expected it to be the "We do few things and do them extremely well" establishment. I thought that my steak was good, the shrimp were decent, and the salad was a salad. My server was genuinely friendly and... read more

On Bourbon Street there are so many places to get drinks and food. This is one of the places you should certainly get food from! My husband and I both got "Pop's Po'Boy" and not only was it delicious but it was giant! Fried shrimp, oysters on fresh bread topped with debris gravy, which if you don't know what that... More

Fine Dining all the way. I had the catfish and it was awful! I have not had a bad meal here in the past, so this will not prevent me from returning. The gator was outstanding as was the rest of our meal. Staff is second to none. Pricy, in contrast to portioning....but fresh and tasty. Nothing wrong with paying... More

Looking down onto Bourbon Street while having dinner and drinks - not a bad proposition. The food was good, the service not bad. Overall a good experience.

The Embers is our "go to" anniversary dinner place when we visit New Orleans every April. If the weather is nice, ask for balcony seating. Great people watching while you are waiting for your meal. The steak is always cooked to perfection, loaded baked potatoes are a must try & staff is always great. The bathroom stalls are a little... More

My wife and I were looking for a different place to eat. We visit New Orleans on a regular basis. On Friday night August 15th we chose the Embers because they were not that busy. The bar didn't have anyone so we decided to sit here because the bartender was nice and friendly. She was very efficient and make very... More

I believe they have changed the name to Retrouvailles. We have eaten at Embers several times during our travels to New Orleans and when we were there in July went down Bourbon street to eat at Embers and found this restaurant in it's location. The dining area downstairs has been turned into a bar area and you are directed upstairs... More

Bourbon street is gross. But this is a cool, old style bar that is not loud with a bunch of crazy revelers. I did not eat there just had a drink at the bar and really enjoyed it.
