Went with 4 friends. 2 said their food was amazing. Me and one other friend said it just just ok. We ordered the chicken fried chicken and it was way overcooked. But the other 2 friends RAVED about their food. Very overpriced for breakfast food. Around 15 bucks per entree.

Home cooking available. Gumbo as good as anywhere. Special touch given to every dish. Fried green tomatoes! I like this place!

Eat has no liquor license, and that's the only "bad" thing that I can say about it. We took a bottle of wine with us to dinner, as it's BYOB. I wish that it had been open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner throughout our stay in New Orleans. We enjoyed everything, but the standouts were delicious banana fritters, silky boudin,... More

My favorite brunch - I go every time I visit NOLA. Always ask if they have some jam for the biscuits - they usually have a homemade treat (orange marmalade was lovely).

Spent New Years here was a set menu with multiple options. I had quail and it was amazing. The service was spectacular. And the ambiance was great. Eat is a great place for an intimate dinner.

We had eleven in our dinner party, and the service was fine. The food was fair. I ordered the crawfish pie which was pretty tasty; I think it could have been richer. My husband ordered the cochon which was not bad. Other family members were not completely impressed. Their remarks were "not bad, could be better". Our kids tried the... More

Had a wonderful lunch here - warm chicken and dumplings on a cold day. Perfect. Any restaurant that's lasted this long in the Quarter without a liquor license must be doing something right!

Had the chicken fried chicken which was out of this world. Wife got the trio and everything about the trio was too mouth watering. I highly recommend this one. Remember they serve on alcohol but the food is worth the stop.
