This restaurant is large. It has 2 main dining areas, and then another in the back, as well as a lounge area upstairs. We ate in the dining room to the left when you walk in. The other room is painted red.
The decor was very nice with a lot of cute objects around the room. I ordered from the pre fix menu, so I received shrimp and goat cheese crepes, the famous BBQ shrimp and bread pudding. The crepes were tasty and the BBQ shrimp arrived with large shrimp with heads on...so I decided to use my fingers! The sause was delicious and it was a great choice. Bread pudding was good too. My husband ordered the pork chip and loved it.
Our waiter, Clarke, was super nice and accomodating. Everyone working in New Orleans for the Xmas season was working really hard for a number of days now, and I am sure they were all getting a little tired. But Clark was so great to us and we enjoyed his service sooo much. He even took us upstairs to see the 2nd floor, which I think has to be reserved for special occasions. (Not sure). So he led us toward the stairs, showing usthe table set for the resident ghost at the base...and then up into the 2nd floor landing, which had a great view of the long graceful white curtains and tables below. (There is a bar in this area as well, on the 1st floor, which is back where the restrooms are.) Clarke opened the door and we were inside a beautiful luxurious red room which was similar to the Foundation Room at the House of Blues in Las Vegas (although no where near as large as LV.)...it was all so wonderful.
I recommend this place because they don't make you feel rushed, the food is authentic and the atmosphere is very New Orleans-like.
