We weren't able to get a table inside, but fortunately it was a great day, the weather was beautiful, and so we took one of two outside tables. Our waiter was very nice, but a tad slow. Probably because he had a lot of walking to do, to get out to us. But very accommodating. I don't remember what wine... More

Friends recommended this place so we had lunch here. We are frequent visitors to Nola and are foodies. My boyfriend used to own a restaurant so knows food. He had the turtle bolognese and I had the trout sandwich special. His was too salty but ok and mine was bland. The actual fish was good but the coleslaw was soggy... More

wonderful little place on magazine; interesting and creative menu (eg.alligator bolognese with a deep fried hard-boiled egg - awesome) and the butter scotch "pudding" in a mason jar was also most excellent

It lived up to the hype for me. The service was prompt and courteous, and the atmosphere, lovely. Everything we ate and drank was fantastic. Whiskey cocktails, brussel sprouts, paneed rabbit, seared tuna...I would order every single thing again. Even the bread for the table is very well done. Definitely priced to be a treat, but does not feel overpriced.... More

Yummy! One of the best meals I had in Nola! The blue crab beignet and butterscotch pudding are musts!

To be candidly honest, we stopped going to this restaurant several years ago as the food was just too trendy for me. With Pascal Manaul, La Crepe Nanou and Upperline which have better menus close by, it just doesn't work for me, but my wife still likes it. My wife always liked it more than I as it was so... More

Four of us shared crab beignets, marinated octopus salad, duck confit, deviled eggs, ricotta dumplings, excellent French bread and great service. We also shared the pudding dessert- not really a pudding consistency and it was EXCELLENT. the crab beignets...I could have them again and again.

What an absolutely lovely place. We loved every aspect of our evening there. We were warmly greeted and welcomed, and found the space to be so comfortable and very lovely. It wasn't to noisy, despite being completely full. The tables are not packed too closely together... I liked that. Our waitress was amazing... Mariselle? Very helpful, very professional, very knowledgable... More

Had a wonderful dinner for four with our teenagers during the first weekend of Mardi Gras. A little challenging to get here with much of Magazine Street blocked for parades, but glad we persisted. Funky and eclectic cocktails (heavy on the whiskey/rye which suits me perfectly). Appetizers were delicious (perfectly fried oysters, a stuffed clams special, the blue crab beignets),... More

Staying in Garden District

Neighborhood Profile
Garden District
Head to the Garden District for the full-on New Orleans experience replete with quaintly clanking streetcars, proudly grandiose antebellum mansions, picture perfect avenues lined with live oaks loaded down with Spanish moss, and a wealth of beautiful churches and many more architectural marvels. Even a brief excursion here makes plain why it’s called the Garden District. So, when you visit be sure to give yourself ample time for admiration at a languidly slow pace befitting such gentile strand of riverside living and to allow you to maximize each opportunity to stop and smell the roses – and whichever other blooms you might come across. While taking it all in, you’d do well to dine at one of the city’s most beloved destinations for regional cuisine. Gourmands from far and wide (and right round the corner) swear the age-old Commander’s Palace is the best restaurant in town – and have been doing so since it opened back in 1880.
