My wife and I took a group of her jewelry design students and their spouses—40 through 67 age group—as part of our “Wire Fandango” annual retreat. This is a “go to it once” place for me. The ambiance is bright and elegantly cheerful. The lighting adds a beautiful glow to the ladies’ faces and is great for photographs. The service is very good. We were seated at too small of a table, but simply asking the waiter to move us resulted in being reseated at a larger, more comfortable spot. By the way—for those of you complaining about getting a “tough” table by the restroom entrance, that’s your fault for accepting it. I felt the food here was good, but for the money, I’m not sure this restaurant could make it in a city like Houston, Texas, and I’m not sure it could make it as a newly opened restaurant in New Orleans. Its history and tradition seems to be its major attraction. As for the advice to go to Acme Oyster House, forget it and go to Deanie’s instead. As I said, I’m glad I went once, but I’m not sure I’d go back.
