Please do yourself a favor and don't miss eating the seafood gumbo. It was spectacular. The best we had in the city. The rest of the food...above average yes..but really salty. Remember to bring your own wine to the restaurant. Oh and know that if you drink more than a bottle (if you have more than 2 or 3 people)... More

We stumbled upon this place while meandering through the French Quarter. It looked like a cute little intimate bistro so we decided to stop in. They don't serve alcohol (boo!) but it's byob (yay!). We had the BBQ shrimp and crawfish boulettes. Comes with a nice little side salad. Solid eats!

A group of us came here for dinner and it was one of the best I've had in NOLA and I visit often. The food was fresh, light (as it can be for what it is!) and all around wonderful. The service was great. Don't miss this spot! One of the best around!!

We went to Eat on our last morning in New Orleans. We really wanted hash browns or home fries but they didn't have any potatoes that morning :( Their soda machine was also down so we weren't able to get seltzer water. But their food over all was pretty good. We would recommend it and possibly visit it again on... More

Totally disappointed - expected a fabulous meal based on the reviews, and that did not happen. I ordered the waiter's recommendation - the Chicken Fried Chicken (his favorite). Sadly, it was dry, tough and rubbery (likely over-cooked). I do not recommend EAT.

We waited 30 mins for our table, but I can tell you it is worth it! Walk down one block and grab a... More

Eat was recommended by our hotel staff we had a nice meal here. If you are planning to go for dinner, reservations are a must (and they do take them). We arrived early (I think around 6:30 or so) and got one of the last tables. The place quite small but comfortable. They have free corkage for the first bottle... More

Great ambience, friendly staff, nice decor and, most importantly, delicious food that combines traditional cajun and creole recipes with a more contemporary style of cooking. Everything I tried over a couple of nights was extremely tasty and the best food of my stay in New Orleans. They do not serve alcohol but you can bring your own.

We dined at EAT for Sunday brunch. I would definitely recommend arriving early. We arrived a little after noon and ended up being the last names on the list for the day because they close at 2 pm on Sundays. We waited approximately an hour and a half to be seated. The staff was upfront with the wait time so... More
