Cozy and quiet with great food!

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.

Found this place as it was near to where we were staying. Did not try the breakfast but stopped in for a late dinner. As it was late I went with a cup of gumbo which was well prepared though it conatined one small piece of chicken and on slice of sausage, you could put both on your spoon at... More

Eat had a nice atmosphere with decent food. It's charm for us was being close to our lodging when we landed the first night in NOLA. We got on the waitlist (they'll text you when a table is ready) and then headed over to Lafitte's for hurricanes (better than Pat Obrien's, IMO). We were welcomed kindly with our go cups... More

My wife and I first noticed EAT when we were walking from our hotel to Bourbon Street. There was a couple sitting at a seat in the window and as I walked by I came to a complete stop by what I saw. One of the biggest, best looking biscuits I had ever seen. It took us another 3 years... More

My wife and I had another great dinner at Eat, with a wonderful redfish special an fried catfish for my wife and I. I would recommend making a reservation and bring your own wine - no corkage fee for first bottle.
