Great upscale brick & mortar restaurant for seafood, cajun, creole specialties for that special date night or high roller business meeting meant to impress. The entryway is like walking through a manicured showcase landscaped model home garden. I would definitely go back to try their other menu offerings and especially the Seafood Mixed Grill [salmon, unknown white fish, jumbo shrimp (sweet & fresh), & scallops that had a wonderful char-broiled aroma] and tasty Dirty Rice. The oven-heated (not microwaved like at other lesser places) bread loaf was pleasingly toasty on the outside and soft on the inside, accompanied by whipped salted butter. The Seafood Trio Appetizer was a meal fit for at least 4 people, great for leftover midnight snacks that included fried alligator (a white meat) on a bed of fried crisp potato strands, lemon pepper batter fried calamari (seasoning was too lemony potent for the bland squid), more of the same bread but sliced into long thick sticks and broiled with a cheesy garlic topping, and shrimp (unfortunately, unlike the jumbo shrimps on the skewer, these smaller shrimps tasted like they were treated with chemical seafood preservative and tasted like medicine) & crawfish fondeaux (don't know if it was my taste buds, but the sauce tasted off with the flavor of cooked unseasoned crab innards and was bland, but I liked the spinach & mushrooms in it). The server, a tall handsome young chap was very personable and paid attention to detail, as was the genteel manager who noted that our food would be awhile in coming, a ~40+ minute wait. The young female hostesses/greeters at the entrance were gorgeous, the best-looking staff I've ever seen at any establishment -- more signs of attention to detail by the management. Bathrooms were plush, on the caliber of a high-end steak joint. It's pricey, but still I would recommend it highly.
