I've always heard about the harlequin for steaks so finally we decided to give them a try. Early on Saturday evening we arrived and were warmly greeted by the host and promptly seated . Our waiter was prompt and polite. We started with the baked stuffed mushrooms , they were perfect. Then came the salads. It amazes me how a... More

How special to be at this restaurant for Mother's Day. The atmosphere is so warm and unique and the food superior to none.

Ten of us, age 19 to 72 ate there. Some ate the rib-eye and thought it to be good. One ordered a pork chop. I was probably an inch and a half thick. He ate two bites and didn't like it. He didn't say why. His wife tried it. She didn't like it. When I asked why she made a... More

I ate at the bar with a co worker on a business trip. Great service and the steak was very good too. Might not be the very best steak I've ever had but I would not complain and will be back when I'm in town again.

Good food, I had the crab cake and shrimp. The portion sizes seemed small to us. The server was very attentive ! The wine was perfect!

I'm a steak girl , like Vic and Anthony's steak and this place was mediocre, I could have made the salad better at home. My food wasn't hot, the waiter took the steak back and put in on the grill telling me that it would take too long to cook another. Wow... So I had to try and eat an... More

We went here before a concert and were not disappointed. The seafood was fresh and really tasty. The only reason for not being five stars is that the crab cakes were a little on the disappointing side. Every other dish was excellent and we will return.

While on our regular visit to Lake Charles, we decided to have both lunch and dinner with my husband's family (on different days. The lunch special was particularly enticing, Fried Eggplant smothered with Crawfish and a delicious sauce for the great price of $11.95. My father-in-law loved his Crawfish Etoufee and ordered it again for dinner on our return. Many... More

At nearly 10 p.m. on Friday there weren't many cars in the parking lot but still several tables full. Ordered the shrimp kabob and crab cake appetizers. Shrimp were delicious and came with little slices of onion and green pepper. Crab cake was ok but unremarkable. Gumbo was very tasty and authentic. Filets and strip elite were all cooked to... More
