“An undiscovered jewel in the Home of Racing”
Reviewed August 10, 2012

We visited this beautifully remodeled turn-of the-century home, which is now a terrific restaurant, after a day at the races in Saratoga Springs, NY. We've lived in this area all our lives, but had not been to or even heard about this gem, but we know we now need to spread the word that this is one "not-to-be-missed". We arrived at 5:30Pm, just as they began to serve dinner, and since we were early, Sara, our server and daughter of the owner, gave us a quick history and tour of this beautiful restaurant as we sipped our adult beverages. I'll leave her to give you the history, when you go there, but, suffice to say, the story is fascinating. Food is fabulous with a full compliment of New Orleans dishes, but, if Cajun isn't your thing, they also have a delicious entrees and appetizers for any palate. We had the salad of the day, mixed greens w/ grilled peaches, goat cheese, and grilled tomatoes and a wonderful dressing. Appetizer was the crawfish beniges, excellent. I had a flatsteak ( thin rib eye) cooked perfectly and my wife had the shrimp creole. Both were superb and we left there stuffed to the gills. The only reservation we had would be that it wasn't clear where the place was. York Street in Saratoga is impossible to find. Try it this way. Go to the Hampton Inn (High Rock Rd.) and look across the street to a large free parking lot.....the Mouzon House is a the very end of the
lot. Drive down to that end. Park easily in the lot and get set to enjoy a wonderful dining experience.

“What's good is very good, what isn't isn't”
Reviewed August 9, 2012

We always like to try new (to us anyway) Saratoga eateries when we spend 4 or 5 days there for August racing season. The traditional Wishing Well, the terrific eclectic Maestro's, and the fledgling Japanese Duo please us greatly and we weren't totally displeased by our first visit here. A lively band at the outdoor bar awaited us while our table cleared. On to the food.It's got a strong New Orleans touch.. Much was good, but the "signature crab beignets" lacked crab flavor.The stuffed poblano, vegetable tapas board pleased other of our party. My choice of a quail gumbo had plenty of bird and a very tasty sauce but the venison sausage and wild boar stuffing seemed to be AWOL. Fortunately, someone shared some venison sausage from another dish..it was great. The fried catfish was too busy without strong flavor (a tough combination to achieve). The sweet potato accompaniment was excellent. My maiden aunt says just a sliver" when offered pie or cake. The portion of tasty flourless cake meets her criterion. The mansion is unique in structure but the air conditioning (not central air) varies by room and the staff varied from young and friendly to young and disinterested. An earlier poster complained about terrible wine service. I second that. The waitress simply said she couldn't FIND either of our two chosen bottles-not that they were out of stock. When one of our party asked for vanilla vodka as an after dinner drink, we were told IN ADVANCE that she couldn't find that either. When we said "just bring the bill" , the vodka somehow miraculously appeared. If they had more consistency to the unique food and staffed better, this would be "a find". I'm afraid it's not at the moment.

“Quaint and great!”
Reviewed August 8, 2012

Atmosphere is small town. We sat at the outdoor bar surrounded by beautiful plants. Bartender was friendly. Moved to upstairs outdoor covered deck. Antique tAbles and chairs were comfortable and the Victorian chandeliers were a nice touch. Our waiter was helpful and very friendly. Food was fresh and delicious! Highly recommend this restaurant!

“Go elsewhere”
Reviewed August 5, 2012 via mobile

We had a party of eight after a nice day at the track to celebrate our winnings. Unfortunately our mood sank as we were seated on the stifling hot rooftop deck on a table that was clearly too small for our group. Chairs were uncomfortable and some left our guests slammed against a brick wall. The disinterested hostess said she was out of menus and we would need to wait our turn for menus. Things did not get any better:
1. When we voiced our concern about Mosquitos, the waitress gave us a bottle of Bug spray next to the bread!
2. After ordering a bottle wine, it came 55 minutes later, only it had been opened, served, and rejected by another guest, and finally served to us!
3. After waiting for 75 minutes, a complaint was registered to the manager, who then rushed out the first courses some 10 minutes later and oddly they were lukewarm.
4. For the food, the beignets, jambalaya, fried chicken, & shrimp and grits were all barely edible. The BBQ lamb and the duck were average at best. The only things that were good weres the stuffed poblano pepper, quail gumbo, and crawfish pie.
All in all, we would NEVER return here. If you feel you really must go, bring a beach chair and sit in the parking lot and listen to the great live music.
