The service was good and the place was cute. The m offers average diversity and fresh vegetables, but the presentation is unimaginitive and the quality is nothing spactacular. While the blackened catfish was well seasoned, the preparation was soft and rather flimsy. The roll it came upon arrived soggy and the effect was reminiscent of a serving from Denny's rather... More

Food was Great and some a New Experience. For a Starter, We Ordered a Blue Cheese Tort With a Fig Sauce over it With French Bread rounds.....It was to Die for (and I Don't care for Figs). My Main Course was a Chicken Fried Chicken Breast/ with Garlic Smashed Potatoes. Can't think of anything I didn't like there....You Got To... More

We went for brunch and lunch. We were sad to find out the second time we went that brunch was only on the weekends. However, both were great. Blackened catfish was amazing.

Biscuits are huge, with huge taste southern style. Eat anything with greens in the dish! MMMMmMMm! They cook better than yo' mama. Vachiere Lousiana is the inspiration-- and these peole are inspired! We love the bring your own beverages policy, too!

Had dinner and the food and service was very good. Fried green tomatoes were excellent, cheeseburger was large and high quality (be sure to order it correctly, I ordered medium to play safe but wished I ordered it medium rare). We also had fried catfish which was very good. We forgot to bring a bottle of wine as there is... More

My boyfriend and I went to Eat NO on a Saturday night as we were passing through the city. We had no idea that a reservation was required, so we ended up waiting (standing) outside on the sidewalk for 20 minutes while tables were available and no one else was waiting. There is no space inside to wait, and no... More

We tried without luck to make reservations on a weekend, but two nights in a row (close to closing, when they rearrange the letters of the Open sign to Nope) we were cheerfully seated right away. Even though they'd run out of glasses and one of the special appetizers, we were so happy with the modern twists on classic southern... More

I was in New Orleans for my birthday and set aside Sunday Brunch for having a meal at one of my favorite restaurants - EAT. They do a steady business, so get there in plenty of time - you might have to wait outside - which is a consideration when it's August. Brunch was great - we stared out with... More

Went for brunch, the reviews are a bit overrated but the food was pretty good everything very fresh. The chicken and andouille gumbo was OUTSTANDING, one of the best i have ever had. They did a cute bacon butter waffles special which was just OK, they let us get a side of that instead of the full entree, The Fried... More
