“I was very impressed with the delicious meals we all ordered at this restaurant.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2012

I have eaten meals in Hammond several times at a couple of my favorite restaurants, but a business colleague recommended Tope La, which I had never heard of, and all of our meals were very delicious. And the service was excellent as well.
My grouper with eggplant medallions and crab meat with a delicious sauce was one of the best meals I have had in a long time.
My three colleagues also enjoyed their meals so much that nothing was left on their plates. They were from Jackson, MS and remarked that there is not a restaurant in Jackson that could hold a candle to Tope La for the flavor and freshness of their food. Them were very impressed with this creole dining.

“Great food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2012 via mobile

Great food in downtown Hammond! Go early and relax in the beautiful bar area. Love the fried green tomatoe appetizer. Really I have never had a bad dish here! The shrimp and grits is my favorite.

“Great place!”

Very friendly service, appealing atmosphere, excellent food. The salmon dish was the best! The rice and vegetables were very tasty. I would go back here anytime. It's well worth the drive!

“Average to good food if you're in the Hammond area”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2011

My food was decent but my co-workers enjoyed theirs. Restaurant was overpriced and portions of fried dishes at lunch time were miniscule.
