This restaurant really has potential of being a gem in BSL, key word potential, but unfortunately it is lacking in service. Apparently I should have visited on Tuesday instead of Monday as my experience was not so pleasurable. My business partner and I were traveling thru and an acquaintance suggested we try them out. We arrived for lunch around 1:00 pm and they appeared not so busy, so we thought we could get in and out in a reasonable amount of time as we were traveling to New Orleans to catch a flight out. I will have to say the young lady that greeted us sat us outside as we requested in a timely manner but we waited what seemed an eternity to have a waitress come and take our drink order. Once she finally did (10 minutes ) after being seated, another 10 minutes passed to get our water and drinks. Not to draw this review out lengthy, so I will spare the minor details. Our appetizers Oyster Rockefellers came out cool as well as our gumbo. We called for our waitress and ask if they cold reheat the oysters, she obliged and brought them back out at the same temp as she did the first time.
Then...our entrees came separate and my business partner was finished eating his (cool) stuffed shrimp before I received my Spinach Salad.
The positive thing I can say about this experience is the waitress did appear to be apologetic and removed the appetizers from the bill and offered two free glasses of champagne.
I hesitate to rate it average as it truly is in a very nice area and the décor and ambiance was very nice as well.
But I truly hope that the owner Ms Ann reads this review and holds a business meeting with her staff and brings to their attention these reviews that are stating their service is substandard.
Would I return? Maybe if I knew that I was going to be waited on in a timely manner and my food would come out hot.
