The waitress was awesome. Great service and interesting conversation. Food was great (Jambalaya, Crawfish Etouffee, Shrimp Creole, Creole pasta, and Bananas Foster Cheesecake). The restaurant has the old French Quarter feel to it with old brick walls. I only gave it 4/5 stars because it...is a little pricey. But still worth a visit!More

We didn't dine fully here but it was the first stop on our food tour and everyone agreed that their read beans and rice was the highlight of the food that we ate (and it was all good). Seemed like a nice place with a...pretty courtyard and outside bar, but can't account really for the full menu or service.More

The seafood gumbo has more sausage than shrimp & no oysters but it has a rich flovor. I absolutely love étouffee but not this one. It's very salty and gloppy. Sad to have spent $45+ on a not-so-good meal in NOLA! The bartender was very...nice taking my to-go order & it came out quickly.More

This fine restaurant is located very close to the river end of Toulouse Street in the French Quarter. It is accessed by a little alleyway off which there are dining rooms either side and an open courtyard ahead so affording space for quite a good...number of diners. The menu offers a good and interesting variety of dishes. With the accent being more toward cajun river and sea dishes than meat which suited us very well but I must say that the meat dishes especially the fillet mignon were tempting however we settled for fish as our main course accompanied by a nice white wine. The food and service were excellent and we were very happy with our dinner that evening.More

Up front not one of my better moments, because I lost my temper. The place was filthy. Honestly filthy. Insulation and dirt were falling on our food and on us. The vents were a 1/4 deep with dust. The general manager stated that it had...been cleaned just that morning. He wasn't a good liar. The front of house was replete with people who obviously had been yelled at before. My food, prior to being covered in insulation and dust, was very good. However as good the crab cakes were they were not served with anything over the top... no dill beurre blanc and when I asked I was told they usually just put some butter on them and he could bring me some butter. The staff was uninformed about the menu and the ingredients in the dishes. It was in my top 10 worst experiences ever. Again, before the insulation, the food was good, if not as advertised but I did wonder about the sanitation of the kitchen when the dinning room was so dirty... but hey you try it. My next email will be to whatever looks like a health inspector in New Orleans. I gave it one star because that was my only option. Oh... after all that we were told it would be 30 minutes before they could comp the meals that were covered in insulation and god knows what. Also I'm covered in insulation and god knows what. After I lost my temper with liar mcliarsson and apologized he explained that was his job to be cursed at and yelled at daily. Dude... if you are running a quality restaurant that is clean and putting out a good product... guess what? You don't have angry customers... covered in brown s*** from the ceiling. Then after we walked out the table next to us came out and stated that a RAT fell out of the ceiling at our table after we left. I called the health dept.More

I typically don't leave bad reviews but this meal was the most bizarre experience I have ever had. In fact, it is the first and only time I have left without paying my bill. 1st, all the wait staff were having a heated debate in...front of all the patrons. No one could agree which tables were which and so food was coming out to the wrong tables regularly. I get that skirmishes happen in any work environment, but typically you save those for behind the scenes and not in front of guests. It made the atmosphere instantly weird. We ordered drinks and they took an incredible amount of time to come. Our waitress truly seemed confused at all times. We ended up ordering an appetizer and as we waited, we happened to see a rat come out on one of the rafters. I am not under the impression that every place I go is squeaky clean, but it was super offputting. Our eyes went wide and we immediately told our waitress we would just be having our app and wouldn't be doing dinner. The app came out and we just didn't have the heart to enjoy it or the drinks at that point and we left everything untouched. The final straw for me was our waitress gave us our bill in a used wine glass. I immediately went up to the manager and explained that this was a very bizarre and off-putting dining experience. He honestly didn't seem very surprised, he crumpled our bill up and we walked out. I hate doing this to local establishments it was just too many things to look the other way on.More

This restaurant is a very nice place to have dinner. I ordered the Boiled Gulf Shrimp that came with sausage, corn, red potatoes, and shrimp. The sausage was cold in the middle. I also order an order of the Seafood Gumbo. It was really good.

First off the restaurant was beautiful... Reservation was at 7:55 on June 25th 2022... We came from Atlanta for this trip... It was a party of 8 an socially we had amazing time but food it was bad... As we were asking for information about...certain things on the menu the waitress said I'm new after maybe 4things ok no problem (we understand when u new on a Saturday night) we said we'll keep it simple. The simple way wasn't the easiest way either out of 8 of us only maybe 2 of us ate our food.. All the appetizers was cold from Gator bites to fried pickles to stuff mushrooms X8.. My shrimp and grits was horrible only 3 shrimps in a big plate of grits with a brown gravy that was my 2nd plate my first plate was beautiful but had to send it back bc it was cold... My niece a seafood boil but the corn was tough and shrimp was over cooked and the potatoes wasn't seasoned and the sausage didn't taste like sausage and other people were complaining about their food... We won't be back.. We did better at Waffle House..More

I ordered the crawfish étouffée which only came with four tiny crawfish. When I asked for more I was charged an extra $11. I felt sorry for the waitress. She seemed exhausted. I can only assume she had a long day. When I asked to...see the dessert menu I was looked at like this is a foreign concept. After 3 tries, she finally brought it over. Not a large selection. I had the key lime pie and it was outstanding. It was the only part of the experience deserving a five star, everything else was unfortunately very poor.More

We first visited here in 2020 and loved the place so much we specifically sought it out when we visited New Orleans again in 2022. The creole pasta is like nothing I’ve ever eaten- it’s the best pasta I’ve ever had. (My wife loved the...Gumbo.) they also offer the traditional New Orleans foods. The courtyard is beautiful and the service was great too. This is on my must go list every time we visit.More
