Well off the beaten path in New Orleans East. The food was all top quality. Service was excellent. This is a large, multi-room venue capable of accommodating 200+ guests.

I've been here for several wedding receptions. Beautiful house, great interior. Nice touch is the cart that picks you up from the parking lot to bring you to the house. A bit out of the way in New Orleans East, but very nice.

I did not notice any hotels nearby. We stayed downtown and it was about a 20 min cab ride. The people are super nice and if you call them I am sure they will have better information about what is near them.
