We had a really bad experience here, my daughter's soon to be fiance and his family were meeting our family for the first time, my daughter and her boyfriend are foodies and particular about these great occasions, they have been eating with their families at the best restaurants all their lives, and they spent quite some time picking this allegedly...

This small and intimate Uptown restaurant is high on atmosphere and even higher on producing delicious food. The mussels are the best I've ever had, and they are only one of the many stellar menu options. The desserts, which change daily, are all scrumptions. The only negative is that the floors reverberate sound, so on a crowded night, it can... More

I had to wait until Tuesday as its closed Sun-Mon, but did save the best for last. I tried the Seafood gumbo and my party tried the nelson. All delicious. I had the... More

Nice restaurant in a good location. The best item we ordered was the BBQ Shrimp and Crab 1st course - I would have licked the bowl clean the sauce was so damn good. My wife had the gumbo and the fish amandine - the gumbo was ok and the fish amandine was excellent. For dessert we had the black and... More

This restaurant is a nice little gem. The service is friendly. My food was well prepared and original. It is a bit far from the French Quarter and other tourist spots, but if you are not from New Orleans, it is worth a trip. I found Vizards to be a nice quality neighborhood place that is free of some of... More

The place is small, but it is lively. Most of the people that eat here are locals and seemed like everyone except for us knew the Vizard family; however, we were treated very well and we did not have reservations! We started w/the crabmeat w/mushrooms in an edible fried eggplant bowl. I got the redfish w/a crabmeat topping and my... More
