“Not the GUMBO SHOP”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

Service and food were awful. The bartender is the best part of this place. Please do not confuse this with the Gumbo Shop - which is excellent

“Southern aromatic”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

This is what New Orleans is all about, the amazing blend of spices and seafood and vegetables. It's easy to get a lot of recommendations on places to eat here and I'm glad I took this one on from the hotel staff. Location was also good. Thoroughly enjoyed my meal!

“YUMMY”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

The food was excellent, we had jambalaya with chicken and sausage (broth was out of sight). We also had gumbo with shrimp. The loaf of bread they served was right out of the oven and just perfect for dipping. Service was great and the price was as expected in the French Quarter. Try it, you won't be let down.
