Some friends and I went here for Ann Arbor's Restaurant Week promotion. Two of us ordered off the prix fixe menu (3-courses, $28, only valid that week). Two others ordered off the regular menu. Overall, everyone was pleased with their meals. Highlights from amongst the four of us were the Gumbo YaYa, the Caribbean BBQ Shrimp, the Jambalaya, and the Catfish Beignets. The serve excellent rolls with a hummus-like spread (odd for this style of restaurant, but good), have a nice selection of wines and cocktails, and great desserts. There is truly something for everyone on their menu. Not everything is cajun spicy, so don't let the threat of "heat" scare you away.
The only reason I rated this as Average was that the preparation of some of our dishes was not what I would expect for the rather high prices we paid. Two of us had dishes that included grilled chicken and in both cases, the chicken was overcooked and dry. Mine was borderline, but my friend's was so dry it looked stringy when she cut it. I also got bread pudding as part of my prix fixe deal. I was expecting something lavish and rich. It was just so-so. I had far better at Olga's Kitchen a week earlier with the same group.
Service was impeccable and we were never hurried. Atmosphere is wonderful. Elegant and warm... you feel like you're in New Orleans.
