Great food, great location

This restaurant has a very good menu to choose from. The drinks and appetizers were excellent, try the "Angels on horseback" shrimp wrapped in bacon. The chef is excellent. Cocktails are well made and generous. We ate next to the window and had a great view of the people walking by. The... read more

Ughhh. I had the Crawfish and Crabcake Pontchartrain - the crabcakes tasted like sawdust and paste - honestly the worst I've EVER had. If there was any lemon in the "lemon butter" sauce it must have been two drops - tasteless. Avoid this dish at all costs, there was just absolutely no flavor whatsoever. Maybe it's hit and miss, my... More

Had a great late dinner here. Wanted cajun food and was not disappointed. The three of us all ordered something different and at family style off of each others plates. The food was great and the service was excellent. Our waiter Stan was so helpful and very friendly. His recommendations were right on and he went above and beyond to... More

Don't even bother with this place. The staff are great but the food is absolutely horrible. We ordered the crab cakes, seafood jambalaya, and Cesar salad with grilled chicken. The salad was the only thing that was edible. I sent the crab cakes back. They were a burned hard crust filled with gray mush that tasted nothing like crab. The... More

On our short stay in New Orleans we ate hear three evenings. Friendly and helpful advice for our introduction to cajun and creole cuisine. Second evening came with lots of fascinating facts about the French Quarter and more great suggestions on the menu, thanks Johnny! Each evenings food was packed with flavour and first class. Great menu. I would thoroughly... More

Great location in the heart of the French Quarter. A lot of charm and nice place to watch people on Royal Street. Now it's not the most modern place, but the service and the food made up for that. I actually went there twice in the same week because "Paul" the server was OUTSTANDING! I watched the other servers and... More

The restaurant has a nice appearance from the outside and the service for the staff is very good. However the food is a huge disappointment - re heated, not fresh and very expensive. You can find much better value in the quarter. Left feeling it was little more than an over priced tourist trap.

Chose this because of the rain but it turned out to be a excellent choice. Waitstaff was friendly and attentive. Orders taken and delivered in a timely manner. Best of all, the food was good and reasonably priced. I had the Mardi Gras Pasta, linguine with shrimp, sausage, bits of pork in a tomato based sauce, slightly spicy. My mother... More
