“Good service and good good”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014

My standard for New Orleans is very high. In most cities I would say it was very good, but this is New Orleans. The food was good. The oyster were good but Acme is better. Eating on the balcony is the way to go. The staff is friendly and helpful. I would not go out of my way to eat here, but it is good if hungry and in the area.

“Great food, but over-priced”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2014

We really enjoyed our lunch at The French Market. We ordered the fried green tomato appetizer, which was delicious, but small in portion for a lower price, much less what we were charged. My daughter and I split the Blackened Catfish and the Seafood Muffaletta sandwiches, both of which were delicious. We were told by our waiter when we ordered that the muffaletta was not served on the usual muffaletta roll, so we were prepared for that. Drinks were also expensive. I think you are paying for the restaurant's location directly across from the French Market. I can't comment on the dinner or banquet services, not having used them. Service was good. Our waiter was very helpful with recommendations of places to go that weren't as touristy as the French Quarter. I'd return, just be careful to ask questions about portions and order accordingly.

“Good spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

Good food, nice service. A bit cramped for seating. The drinks are expensive, bloody mary was $10. Create sea food and traditional New Orleans food.

“Reasonable feed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2013

We were looking for something for dinner - bit more southern style. Decided to give this a try. Wasn't too bad. Food had enough flavour but nothing brilliant, think somewhere a bit more 'authentic' may have offered more of what we were looking for. Bit on the pricey side for what it was - particularly the po-boy (the one vege option offered) one of our party ordered. But tap beer was nice and staff pleasant enough.
