Description: Housed in a historic 19th century townhouse blocks from the waterfront, 219 has for 40 years been a beacon for the most authentic gourmet creole experience possible outside of greater New Orleans. Executive Chef Marcus Olson has taken things one step further and introduced a truly unique gourmet butcher experience--USDA Prime steaks dry-aged 21 days in house and cut to order to your exact specifications. Your meal is complemented by a 750+ bottle wine list and a massive whiskey selection. We offer private dining rooms in addition to our elegant main floor, and offer tasting menus custom-tailored to your preferences. After your meal, you can unwind in our spacious second story lounge and be entertained by world class blues music most nights of the week. Whether your taste runs towards alligator and etouffee, or to succulent aged steaks, we invite you to rediscover your favorite Old Town institution.

We only visited the upstairs for the music and the cigar bar. What a great establishment. The music was fantastic, service was excellent. Highly recommend for a good time.

I know this restaurant seems to be plus or minus, but our visit here was fantastic. Our dishes, including the Jambalaya, were absolutely fantastic. Our server was a joy, and the mac and cheese was sumptuous. We thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience, and wished we had a place like this in our hometown.

The service was unorganized and spotty. While this space could be spectacular, and the menu appears appealing, they just weren't able to deliver. Little things just seem to add up to an overall subpar experience. Mac and cheese? I think the key ingredient is the cheese, here, it's Mac and essence of cheese. Hard hard is it to cook rice? Seriously, it should never be al dente, or crunchy. Come on, just because you're in Old Town, doesn't mean you shouldn't deliver good service, and good food. Some attention to detail would go a long way.

This restaurant reminds me of a bistro on Bourbon Street in New Orleans, LA. Such a classy place. I'm I'm wondering if the bar is still downstairs. They had great seafood gumbo.

Ask for Tu, she is a server there and she is amazing! The food is Cajun, and very tasty. They do have a cigar bar upstairs. The Sunday brunch is really good too. During nice weather, they have great outside seating. Go check it out, you will love it.
