“Glad I took a chance and ate here”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2013 via mobile

During our trip to Market Square, I walked by Nola a few times and finally looked up the menu online. We decided to go on a limb and try the place even though its menu was very unique. Best decision I had! Servers are very friendly( a little slow but I think they just wanted us to enjoy our lunch and not rush ). I highly suggest going at lunch and doing the combos so you can try a few selections. A little pricey for lunch but food was awesome. Best pastrami I've ever had hands down.

“Do expect a New Orleans Restaurant”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2013

Even though they called it NO LA for New Orleans Louisiana don't expect food like in NO. The gumbo is average. The friend alligator is not tasty and overfried. Salads are OK. Portions could be larger for the price. Red Snapper nothing great and skip the overpriced desert.

“Lively Place in Pittsburgh”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2013

Great jazz, good food and a fun atmosphere. I would recommend eating in the bar area if you want to listen to music. If you are with a large group that would like to talk, get a table in the back room. Shrimp and Grits were very good as well as the desserts. Excellent wait staff.

“Impressed !!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2013

We went there and completely enjoyed our meal. We ordered the Jambalaya, Shrimp Po Boy and Pissaladiere and were impressed with all three! Our server Cody was attentive and pleasant..and served great Sangria and Hurricanes. Had just enough room for beignets ..and they were awesome. Thanks for making this such a special occasion. We will be back
