Do yourself a favour and avoid this place! I can't remember having worse service in a restaurant. We were headed for another restaurant when we came across this place and saw colleagues dining there. Our friends mentioned that their waiter had given them a hard time for combining tables to accommodate their party of 12. Our waitress should not be... More

Stopped in for a late lunch. Waiter practically nonverbal and actually showed hostility when I didn't order an alcoholic beverage. I understand the concept of upselling but such a response was unwarranted. The meal quality was poor. My salad was filled with rotten (gelatinous black) lettuce. It was inedible. Waiter dropped off our lukewarm gumbo with a literal bang. I... More

This was the first place we ate when we got to NO, and it pretty much got to be our "go to" place for the rest of our visit. We had a different server each time we were there, and the service was always excellent. Breakfast, lunch and dinner served. Lots of variety, good prices, convenient location for casual meals.

Are here on my first night in New Orleans. Was eager to experience food I had never tasted. Got a combination of étouffée and shrimp Creole. And The barbecued shrimp for an appetizer or. While the shrimp were large they had a pasty texture that I can only assume came from freezing, thawing and refreezing. I'm from Florida and have... More

As my first and only meal in New Orleans, I was left extremely disappointed. The food looked great as I walked in and saw others eating. Everything on the menu sounded good, too. I ordered a club salad and my husband ordered the red beans and rice with fried chicken special. The food looked wonderful but was served at room... More

The atmosphere, service and food was great!! We had the all meat omelette, Ragin Cajun Omelette, chicken and sausage gumbo and the beignets. Everything was delicious!! The decor was beautiful as well.

I went here with three guests. Two meals were brought out together and the third was brought out after the first two meals were already eaten. The third meal was brought out at least a half hour after the first two meals; however, the manager refused to acknowledge this issue. The manager claimed that it had not been long enough... More

We went for lunch here twice over the New Year's Weekend. The place was packed so we ate at the bar. They have a terrific dish: the New Orleans sampler which consists of seafood gumbo. red beans, jambalaya, and bread budding. The first three items were wonderful, but the bread pudding was too sweet and we left it. They have... More

Service was very friendly and attentive. Food was mediocre, at best. Location was beautiful. I think this place is only worried about getting tourists in the door. With so much good food in New Orleans, I was surprised at how "Meh," their oysters and catfish were. Fries were blah. They know tourists won't come back but there will always be... More

Service was HORRIBLE! Food was okay but when you can't get you waiter to fill water or anything else I'm done. There was a large group in corner window table of "regulars". Probably 12-15. Their chair was literally touching our table and blocking the walk way. When they moved they bumped the table causing a glass to spill. They went... More

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.
