Our expectations were very high, and reality came no where close. We were expecting Mulates, as my friend had eaten here before. This is now a different restaurant, and by my friend's judgement, it has fallen far. I wouldn't go back. The tilapia was uninspired and overcooked, and the salad hardly worthy of the name, but the grilled shrimp was excellent if a bit salty, and the jumbalaya was pretty good. So, mixed bag on the food, but definitely not worth the price. My problems were with the noise level and the rude staff. We were expecting zydeco, and expected loud music. But this was so loud that you could not hear the wait staff questions. Even if they stood right next to you it was hard. But our primary waitress insisted on standing on the other side of the table, and she considered my difficulty in hearing her to be a huge inconvenience for her, and not something that she was going to move an inch to solve. She also was very huffy about my wanting to know some of the ingredients; I have serious allergies and food sensitivities, so it's important. I've never been treated so rudely on this issue. Louisiana must not hold restaurants liable for mistakes in this regard, based on her attitude. Our meals were also expensive - over $70 for dinner and drinks for 2. The atmosphere was pretty good - kind of wooden saloon meets Cajun. Plenty of room for dancing and lots of tables. The zydeco was pretty good as well - not great, but certainly enjoyable. Go here for music and drinks, preferably with a large party. Don't bother for dinner.
