Tope La is located in downtown Hammond, Louisiana. There is parking along the street but there is a free parking lot across the street from it.

For busy times or holidays, I suggest you call to make a reservation.

I'm not sure how to categorize the food - maybe American with Cajun flare. These are upscale dishes ranging from $15 - $25 per plate with very nice presentations. They have a separate wine list and you will more than likely find something you like.

The atmosphere in the evening is dimly lit and cozy.

This was our 2nd visit to the restaurant - introduced to us by a relative who is local. We visited Dec 23rd, but they could not find 2 wines we requested and the service was so slow that we left. I assume they were understaffed due to the holidays. We tried again Dec 24th in the evening (we knew they were open until 8pm), but they told us they were full unless you had a reservation (they only had a few tables that were seated) - I assume they were ready to go home for Christmas. The previous time we visited (not during a holiday), the service seemed to be good/typical of a fine dining establishment. We will probably try it again when we go back in another year or two.
