This restaurant needs a good cleaning, floors, tables and mini blinds on the windows were all filthy. Coffee was served to me in a cup that looked like it had never been washed, finger prints and smudges. I had to take my napkin and dip...More

First time trying Cafe Rue, not a bit disappointed! The service was excellent, very friendly. I loved the trivia cards on the table. Restaurant was a bit chilly, but quickly changed once the food was served. Flavorful crab cakes. Shrimp pontchartrain was creamy and spiced...More

Small but really good food. Atmosphere lacks but it,s a good place to go for dinner. The White chocolate bread pudding is to die for. Recommend for Creole foodies.

There are not enough Cajun restaurants across the country and this one is definitely good. I like freshness and quantity of most of the food but it does seem like salad is made too far ahead and was wilted. The fried crawfish is lightly fried...More

Another hole in the wall near the Pesto Cafe which we loved. The food was really mixed, as was the waitperson. There were only three tables on the night we visited, and the server forgot one order, got another wrong, and forgot to bring the...More
