“Sophisticated and delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013 via mobile

Why have I not heard of this place earlier! A definite B Back! Had the Scallops and Short Rib on butternut risotto - best meal in the Quarter and I've have been to Nola many times. Don't miss!

“What a disappointment!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013 via mobile

No way is this restaurant worth the money. Although the staff are very pleasant and friendly the food was a big let down.

All the dishes we had were misconceived, with overly sweet sauces or sweet elememts which clashed with the main flavors. The steak was basically good meat, but spoiled by the sauce.

Save your money and go elsewhere. We won't return.

“Breakfast buffet, So So”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

Found hair in my scrambled eggs. Told waitress, she said "I'm so sorry" and that was that. Whatever. Also coffee was very weak.

The fruit selection was nice, lots of berries. Breakfast potatoes were great too. The "made to order omelet" is weird since it's not at the buffet bar, you have to give the order to the waitress and she has to tell you the ingredients available.

Oh, and the toaster takes forever to toast a bagel.

Overall found it disappointing and overpriced, did not return.

“AWESOME breakfast!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

Kathy is a fantastic server and will really take care of you in the mornings. The made-to-order omelets/scramblers are to die for and the fruit smoothie is divine.

“A little disappointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

This is the hotel's restaurant, we chose it because we were staying at the hotel and having arrived jet-lagged didn't want to venture out. So, the food was good generally, the service great, my criticism is the Irish coffee which was awful. Also not a lot of beer choice either. Good fish dishes, but quite pricey overall.
