We had reservations for 3 on a Monday evening at 8 pm. Across the three meals, two were great, one of okay. The service was great and the atmosphere was nice. It was easy to converse with others at the table.

I had a great wine with dinner (they have an extensive list) and a nice rye whiskey as dessert. The complimentary biscuits with a pepper jelly... More

We love Cajun food and were glad to find out that our friends had made reservations for us here on New Year's Eve. We were part of the early crowd, arriving at 6:00 PM. The menu was prix fix, each coming with a cup of gumbo and with choice of appetizer, main and dessert. I choose the duck as my... More
