First off let me say it was easy in and easy out. Usually restaurants of this caliber makes getting seated difficult at best. Had a great waiter with 6 stars on his lapel, signifying 30 years of service. He was gracious, sarcastic, helpful, and let us eat. Great combination of wait staff for our table as well. The food was... More

Our 5 checked in and were quickly seated. No reservations but we got right in. We were seated with a nice view of the restaurant. The tuxedo wearing waiters were bustling & hustling all over the place. We ordered 3 appetizers: Duck spring rolls, fried shrimp and scallops. I loved the duck, the shrimp was ok and the 2 scallops... More

This is a very classy restaurant with excellent food and service. The BBQ shrimp is phenomenal and the French bread to dip into it is amazing. The gumbo yaya is delicious as is the seafood gumbo. The roasted red pepper and goat cheese soup was excellent. The redfish grilled and topped with lump crabmeat was wonderful. My only complaint is... More

Had to look a lot to find a bistro similar to what we have in Montreal: nice food and wine, nice ambiance. It was hard to find. But Mr B was close to what I was looking for, except that the place is really big. So more noise from people talking than actual ambiance with background music. Food was good,... More

OMG. I took my husband there for his birthday dinner and it was amazing. Service was impeccable. I had shrimp and grits and he ate the pork chop. I would recommend this for a nice dinner. Make reservations because it was a full house.

Stopped in for dessert and a drink and had a fantastic time. The drinks were amazing (best Sazerac ever), Pecan Pie was second best I have ever had and the bartender was one of the best I have ever come across.

Staying in French Quarter

Neighborhood Profile
French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
