“This restaurant is worth every penny and more”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2012

This would be the perfect location for a proposal. The food was fantastic. The host even gave us a tour of the entire building. They have an amazing chef's table in the kitchen.

“Very Good, Maybe declining a little”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2011

We discovered Mabry House restaurant about 8 years ago based on a referral from a colleague. We were looking for a nice, quiet place with excellent food for a special occasion like an anniversary or birthday. My wife and I love to eat and when we do on these occasions, we like to talk while we eat. Not a lot of places in Shreveport are places were you can have an easy conversation over food. Mabry House was exactly what we wanted. Other have described the setting. There are three serving rooms downstairs with 6 or 7 tables in each. The upstairs can accommodate a larger party and used to be a hot spot for pharmaceutical company reps to wine and dine local physician groups. The food has always been excellent although we may be getting jaded or maybe the food is a little less fantastic recently (the sorbet is commercial rather than home made as in earlier visits). Waiters had worked there a long time and knew the food as well as the chef. I have noticed that both the long term waiters have left for other restaurants. While the Mabry House's small size serving areas are nice, the tables are a little closer than I like, and it is not uncommon to find a table of four sitting beside my wife and me and their conversation becomes part of our table. It doesn't take a lot for a close table to be "loud". Several have mentioned the Chef Table. We tried to book this one time but were told that the table could only be reserved for a group of four or more and could nnot be booked by a couple. Seemed a strange policy to me, but I assume they want the Chef's Table to generate more revenue. Mabry House is not cheap by any means, but continues to be one of those few places that is good for a quiet special evening of grown-ups (without a gaggle of young children) eating some very well prepared food.

“Big Bucks are needed.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2011

I took my wife there for a birthday dinner.
Yes, the food was really good.
Yes, the service was also what one would expect.
Yes, the ambiance was very nice.
However, expect the price to be high, very high. The cost did not equal the value received.
