The crawfish boil here was hands down the best in New Orleans. We had them every day we were here and these were outstanding. The flavor is amazing and the spice is just right. Give these guys a try. You’ll be so happy you did!

This is our first time to Clesi’s restaurant. Our cousin that’s recently moved to New Orleans recommended it... it was his first time as well. We loved the ambience, the food and especially loved the outdoor seating.
