We found this gem of a restaurant hidden in a strip mall off of I35 and Parmer. The four of us each had a different entree and we were delighted with our choices. I had blackened catfish topped with a gumbo of seafood that was amazing and one of the best bread puddings I have had.ever. Could not have asked for better service. The host and hostess made you fell like their best friend. We're definitely going again.

The restaurant is located in a shopping center and you would not expect to find such good food but it is a real treat. I was visiting from out of town and ate there twice and both experiences were great. The food is great. I felt like I was in New Orleans. Not too spicy, just right. And a pretty wide range of entrees on the menu. The wine list is limited but satisfactory. The place does fill up, reservations are probably not a bad idea. I hope to come to Austin again on business so I can eat here!

The catfish gumbo and blackened red fish are amazing taste treats. The bistro style atmosphere is nicely done. The wait staff and service are top notch. Highly recommend reservations for Friday & Saturday nights.

Went to eat here for my 25th wedding anniversary. Had a fantastic dinner (blackened red fish Pontchartrain) and a great bottle of red wine. This place had great service a great food. Would highly recommend making reservations though as they fill up, especially on weekends.

I went there during a business trip because of the good reviews I read about it. The experience was good overall, however I developed severe stomach pain as soon as I left there. It is 72 hours and counting, and I still have stomach pain and I need to see a doctor tomorrow. And, I do not have any allergies or other issues to seafood, I eat seafood fairly regularly at our city.
