Fun vibe with extremely friendly service, solid food, very reasonable prices, generous portions and BYOB. I agree with some others that the food was a bit salty but wouldn't hesitate to recommend this restaurant. I had the crawfish pie and had nothing to compare it to. The filling was yummy and the pastry more doughy than I expected but perhaps... More

Good restaurant in NO. Bring your own alcohol since they dont serve any. Food although tasty was salty. Best of all was the stuffed peppers with meat and shrimp. Great decoration and fast service Prices not too bad

Food here at EAT is consistent as is the service. We really enjoy the brunch on weekends (no reservations taken) The first bottle of wine there is no corkage fee. It's good to order some OJ and make your own Mimosa's. Lunch and Dinner is great, I like the Fried Green Tomatoes, also the Butter Beans with Shrimp last night... More

In NOLA, it is hard to pick which restaurants not to go to. We have so many we have eaten at over the years. We decided to give this place a try based on great reviews and it lived up to the hype. No corkage on the first bottle and $15 on additional bottles kept the price down and let... More

This place feels great. Reminded me of one of the wonderful little places in Paris where food rules. As it does here. I would mention my wife's "special": a flounder on vegetables that was the best fish either of us (I got two bites) could remember. And the bread pudding - a NOLA standby, and here the best we have... More

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
