This restaurant was recommended by friends and since we were on Decatur and in the mood for steak we gave it a try. The menu prices are very high, so I'm glad we chose the evenings special (sirloin with bbq shrimp and baked potato). The food was while not bad, just not impressive. We were the only guests in the...

I had fried shrimps and my husband had the cheeseburger. Would have had better burger from Burger King, and quarter of the price. Shrimps were drowned in batter and served with bread and fries. All three components tasted the same. And the restaurant doesn't have liqour license so we bougt some beers next door and drank them from plastic mugs.... More

If you want great seafood, definitely give this place a try. We enjoyed it so much we actually thought about going back the following evening, but we opted for a different restaurant. The catfish, shrimp and oysters are superb. This place doesn't disappoint.

I'm under the assumption that they're under new ownership as it's now called Estrella Steak & Lobster. We visited right after this name change so they didn't have a new liquor license yet. They also had only two rib eye steaks and no prime rib when we visited. We ordered a variety of meals from the menu ... BBQ shrimp,... More

It is a small place and we were the only two in there on a Wednesday evening. Both had steaks and they were prepared well. Took a little longer then I would expect with no crowd but would certainly go back.

My husband and I ate here for dinner one night on our honeymoon, and we recommend it to everyone! Not only was the food delicious, but we also loved that we didn't have to break the bank. We had lobster, two steaks, drinks, and more for a VERY good price! We would definitely eat here again!

The Lobster for 2 is one the best deals in New Orleans. One of our favorite places to visit. Salad, entree with sides and a dessert.

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.
