This is my all-time favorite restaurant! The restaurant itself is small and intimate, only seating approximately 30 people. We cannot get over the Creole Surf and Turf and the gumbo is unbeatable as well! Service is always spot on! We have tried venturing out to other well known restaurants in the Quarter, and are always comparing our meal and the... More

It was recommended by our hotel, and did not have a huge line, as did the old famous restaurants. Frequented by locals in the know. Delicious food and wine!

Really good food.- off the beaten path. I walked by the place but didn't go in because it was small and I had just arrived in NOLA. The menu is very impressive and made me come back- in the end it was the best meal compared to all the other well-known or super famous names or chef restaurants in the... More

The food was amazing - the menu was not long, but it was just right. And it was such a hidden away treasure. Tucked away on Dauphine Street, so easy to miss. We walked past it four or five times before we decided to venture in - and we did not regret it. The waiter was truly old world -... More

Recommended by staff at Dauphine Orleans hotel for last minute late night dinner. Waiters were very attentive and friendly. I had the crab salad which was amazing! A little pricey but well worth it. :-)

Wow. We opted for the Feed Me menu, even though it meant we had to eat ANYTHING chef put in front of us. We didn't regret it for a minute. Go and give it a try, you won't be disappointed! Amazing experience!

I saw lots of reviews of this restaurant on T.A. before we left for NOLA. We decided to go here for dinner on our first night in town. When we walked there, it was very small and not many people were inside. So we wondered if we should go in. Thankfully, we did!!! It was small, intimate, super friendly, and... More

Looking at the website, I expected modern, trendy, upscale.... It's actually a little hole in the wall place with a faded red awning at the front, complete with decor circa late 1960s. But somehow it all works. Open kitchen. The chef made regular appearances at a table that was having the Chef's "feed me" deal. In addition to the decor,... More

This quaint restaurant we found on Trip Advisor. My husband saw the pictures of the surf n' turf and said " we are going there". Not disappointed at all. The building is on Dauphine and Conti, just a block from Bourbon but it is not noisy. There are 11-12 tables but you are not sitting on top of other tables... More

We (gratefully) stumbled upon this place while trying to find a place to dine for dinner one night. It's a small restaurant with few tables and excellent service. Fortunately, they were able to squeeze us in without reservations (Reservations Recommended). We were not bold enough to try the Chef's Feed Me deal, so if you are adventurous, I would suggest...
