Small Out of the Way Place worth Finding

EAT was recommended by our hotel desk clerk. We were tired of a week of traditional Louisiana food and wanted something fresh and different. It's a small place, and you walk in the door into the middle of the seating area. It had a nice, quiet atmosphere, lights were low at dinner. Waiter was... read more

I rate this place a 3 1/2. It has nice potential but is lacking focus and more sophistication. The menu is confusing at times, needs to be better organized. Many people read their outside menu but no one came in. It is BYOB since they are located across from a school. The service is pleasant but also lacks some polish.... More

They have a small menu but the food is deliciously prepared. We have been here several times and each time we are impressed with just how tasty the food is. I have had their eggs Benedict and have never had better. Today I had their catfish and again, outstanding. Not greasy, just right. Really crunchy fresh taste. Did not want... More

Great brunch but get there early! Ambiance is very cheerful and bright and the fried green tomatoes are great.

Servers were down to earth, as was the food. Small but not crowded with tables. You can BYO wine. Nice music and little fireplace.

Dropped our bags at the hotel and started walking. The lunch menu looked great and we found a table. The two of us split the potato leek soup, fried catfish po boy and butterbeans with shrimp. Charming atmosphere, local art on the walls. Fresh Southern comfort food- what I would picture having at a friend's home who happens to be... More

This is my first visit to New Orleans and like everyone else, I am staying in the French Quarter because that's where the conference is that I am attending. After walking up and down Bourbon Street on a Saturday night, I decided to avoid that street as much as possible. Good to see what it is all about, but unless... More

We were directed to the Eat Restaurant by the bartender at our hotel. You can take a bottle of wine to have with your meal and no corkage fee. You can also take a 6 pack of beer to consume. After your first bottle of wine or beer; there is a charge. We started with the chicken liver appetizers and... More

Real home cookin' served up by friendly and pretty carefree staff. It is really good to have a place with such a great option in the quarter. Excellent traditional fare in a setting like you have gone over to someone's house for lunch. I like the fact that there is no corkage as they do not offer alcohol. And then... More

We were so surprised to find such a delightful place to eat. I get the wedge salad with shrimp and my friend had the oysters. It was so good, the food felt good in our mouths. The wait staff was very friendly and accommodating. We're going to be here for four days and we will come back.
