“Excellent for fish eaters”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2014

This is a nice place to have fish with a twist. Very different from your local fish&chips. Nice combinations and fresh stuff .

“Disappointed”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2014

I am not an expert in Gajun specialities, but still like spicy food. So, I don't know what was wrong, yes it was spicy, but not tasty. We took gator and seafood gumbo. Too little seafood in seafood gumbo. gator one was just eatable. Blackened catfish was ok. We were disappointed,especially taking into consideration, that specifically visited Farmers Market for Gumbo Pot(.

“great gumbo”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 13, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

The Gumbo pot at the LA Farmer's market is like a taste of creole Louisiana.
Their gumbo ya-ya is rich and flavorful and spicy.
You can't beat it

“disappointed with blackened salmon”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2013

The menu offer lots of great Cajun specialties. My husband did not enjoy the blackened salmon sandwich. He said it was bland and he actually didn't finish it.
Sorry Gumbo pot, maybe he should have tried something else.
Service was friendly and timely.

“Oyster po'boy was like manna from heaven”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2013

Unfortunately I wasn't very hungry when I ordered . We were loading up on food instead of spending a fortune at Dodger Stadium . I had the oyster po'boy and it was absolutely fabulous . It was quite large and everything tasted very fresh . There were a fair amount of oysters and they made me wish I could have the sandwich every week or two for the rest of my life !
My son and I also shared the gator bits , but found they were bland . It would have been nice to have some season salts or something on them .
The pink lemonade was also excellent .
The service was fine and the wait didn't seem too long . Will definitely return for another po'boy on our next trip .
