“Brunch”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

Went here for brunch before a football game and was very disappointed. Several of us ordered bloody mary's with different spicy levels and they didn't taste that way. The food was not very good. Several ordered different omelet stuffed crepes and no one was impressed. Only half of our table got water and we were almost done eating once the second round of drinks came. Also, no one came around asking if anyone wanted coffee until the end of our meal and then only filled the cups halfway. Was not asked if we ever needed anything else, just received our bills after waiting awhile for them.

“Amazing martinis, interesting great food.”
Reviewed September 27, 2012 via mobile

Lobster corndog with Mac n cheese? Absolutely!!! The Jambalaya also refreshingly authentic and wonderful. Go early if you are wanting quiet dinner for two. Stay later for live entertainment.

“Cajun Flavors”
Reviewed September 18, 2012 via mobile

Our business group went wandering for dinner, and a Downtown Guide recommended this place. It is in a pocket of downtown with other small restaurants, shops, and industrial lofts. We were the only group here on a Monday night, save for a handful of folks at the bar. It looked like there was a small stage for entertainment.

Service was pleasant, helpful but not overbearing. The place was clean, but drips of water kept falling from the ceiling- annoying, but not enough to ruin the night.

Food was enjoyed by all- the salmon and the crepes were a hit, and I enjoyed red beans and rice. In all, it was worth the 10-block hike from our hotel (that gave us time to walk off the rich food).
