Thank You so much for taking the time to review your experience @ Bourbon Street. We value each and every clients feedback to make our restaurant stand out !! Thank You for your comment as everything was well worth the wait as we have an extremely large menu. Thus we take our time with the preparation of each and every customer order. Which takes a bit longer when the restaurant is at capacity. Again, thanks for applauding the staff and the restaurant with your kind review, and we look forward to seeing you again in the near future.

“Wonderful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

We went to Bourbon Street with a couple of friends for a birthday. It was lovely, the food, the service, the atmosphere, the saff even helped with the children. The waiter forgot 1desert order (but we were 18 people) so that's no trainsmash! It was a perfect afternoon! PS- The BEST desert I have ever tasted!

“Too noisy”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2012

The evening ambience was fine until it was interrupted by the heavy trucks that came past regularly.

I found the waiters a bit cocky and a group of us were served in stops and starts so that by the time the last person's food was served, the first person was long finished.

A pity. Otherwise it could really be a great pace.

If you are there with a group of friends for drinks only and it's late at night, sitting away from the open seated area would be an altogether different experience

Thank You for your review! We appreciate you taking the time to comment on our restaurant. I'm very sorry that your experience was not up to your expectation. In response to the noise of the trucks passing by on the national road I'm sorry that we can not control this. If you would be so kind if you have a copy of your invoice or credit card slip I can look into the matter of "cocky waitrons". Again thank-you for assisting us with your comments to strive to always improve our clients experience @ Bourbon Street. Kindest regards, Lea
