It's okay

Not my favorite in New Orleans. It was okay but not great - which, in a city known for excellent food, is a disappointment.

Found this place in January and went twice during our visit (lunch and dinner). Came back in November and had to have it again! We did breakfast this time and then for a snack that same night because the banana fosters beignet is AMAZING. And I am not a big fan of sweets. Staff is really great.

This place serves the best Gumbo ever. We ate here twice enjoyed it so much. Busy all the time, locals come here too. Fantastic creole food, must give it a try.

Excellent service - from start to finish. Good food - we ordered oysters, po-boys, etc., and it was all good! Great atmosphere - sort of an indoor/outdoor vibe with some tables situated halfway in/out of openings/doors, out onto the busyness of the FQ streets. Lots of people-watching opportunities!

We have been here on our pervious visits to the Quarter and had good experiences. The servers are usually very energetic and fun. The food is usually good. But this last time we went for breakfast my omelet was way underdone. It was totally runny. The croissant for the breakfast sandwich was as hard as a rock and the cheese... More

We ate here a couple of times during our stay and the star of the show each time was the chicken and sausage gumbo, it was the best we had in NOLA. In fact the larger portion was so filling that we didn't need to eat anything for the rest of the day after having it for lunch. That said,... More

We enjoyed a light dinner of Gumbo and Jambalaya (sausage & chicken). Both were excellent and served piping hot. It was a bit spicy for my wife, but very tasty. Service was a little slow but it was worth the wait. This restaurant is about a block from Bourbon St and is a more conservative area. Enjoy!

We looked around during the day looking at the menus and atmosphere. This placed seemed to fit the bill. And it did. The food was excellent. My wife had a crayfish dish (?) which she said was excellent and I had a very good steak. But the best part was the service. Thank you Kim for making our evening fun.... More

First, I probably would not be writing this review if I was offered a discount on my food because I onlyI ate 10% of it. I also told the server it was pretty bad, but no discount was offered. PROS - The staff was nice. - The place has so much potential. It's on a corner with open air windows.... More
