I had the shrimp platter, with turnip greens n mac n cheese. I did not care for mac n cheese, didn't seem like the cheese was extra sharp, n the mac were long, like from instant mac n cheese. 😕...So, I returned it for potato salad. The potato salad was excellent. The shrimps were big n tasty, not bland at... More

Germainia, the manager and Joseph, the waiter made our eating out experience the best. We had traveled from Houston to vacation in New Orleans and had been to Praline Connection before. The evening of Aug. 9 we wanted some fantastic food,so we decided on PC. There was a huge private party coming in shortly and the manager made room for... More

Loved the veggie plate, red beans and rice with mustard greens. A plate for breakfast, and a plate for lunch.

It's great that both your visits went so wonderfully, Sarissa! To hear how much you enjoyed things during Essence Festival and on your visit in July is music to my ears. I hope the rest of your trip was just as heavenly as the fried chicken and yams. All the best, Curtis Owner More

We come to NOLA every 2 years and we had eaten here in June of 2014 and the food was excellent, the staff was excellent and we couldn't wait to eat here again. This time it was a horrible experience. To begin with, no one came to our table for at least 10 minutes and the restaurant only had folks... More

When you walk through our door, Roger, you should always expect friendly and attentive service from us. That's something we've been proud of since we first opened up back in 1990 -- that certainly hasn't changed between the two years you stopped by! I'm honestly surprised that one of our servers would have presented himself this way. This doesn't sit... More

Not awesome. We stopped in here Saturday evening while just exploring Frenchman Street. I ordered the Red Beans and Rice with a Pork Chop side. I should have just stuck with the Beans and Rice. The pork chop had a strange smell (almost like a freezer burn then microwaved to thaw). One guest had a po-boy and the other, shrimp... More

Like I mentioned on your Yelp review, Don, you should always expect our pork chops to be properly prepared. I'm sorry if they didn't impress like the po boy and shrimp etouffee, but rest assured that my team would have looked into it if you brought it up. With that being said, I thank you for giving us a try... More

Very friendly staff and busy. Family friendly and staff was great with our kids. Meals were pretty good but all of our dishes were delivered cold to luke warm. Would have been 4 stars if the food was delivered hot.

Sorry if the food was cold, Brad. You're right to expect our meals to be hot, so my team would have for sure looked into that if you brought it up. Still, I'm glad that didn't take away from the ambiance. Thank you for giving us a try. All the best, Curtis Owner More

Staying in Faubourg Marigny & Bywater

Neighborhood Profile
Faubourg Marigny & Bywater
Nestled between the French Quarter and the Ninth Ward, the Faubourg Marigny & Bywater environs are largely residential. Of course, folks around here love to go out and have a good time as much as they do anywhere in NOLA. And if out-of-towners want to join in the festivities, well then so much the better! Home to some of the most revered live music venues in New Orleans, an eclectic gaggle of gourmand dining destinations, and a come-as-you-are vibe that’s as infectious as it is alluring, this is real deal New Orleans oozing with southern hospitality and the promise of a most epic night out. For endless opportunities to boogie, to admire row upon row of lovingly restored homes, and to escape the fray of the more touristic parts of town (but still live it up in grand style) head to Faubourg Marigny & Bywater.
