The waitress was nowhere to be found. Had to flag her and flag her all night. We were there for 30 minutes only, mind you.

Ordered
Mojito - $9 (average)
Salad w/ Chicken - $14 ( Chicken not prepared to order, I have had better at home)
3 Spiced Oiled Pieces of Ground Beef on a stick - $9 (Is there a chef in the house)

Save your money and go elsewhere. This is simply a bar that serves re-heated food.

We actually ate at the Old City location. It was good food, a unique menu. Service was lacking - slow, uninterested in their jobs, food sat in the window for at least 10 minutes.

With a very contemporary feel, Continental on Chestnut is a great spot in the French Quarter for both couples and small parties. Mostly Tapas choices, nearly everything we tried was top notch—baby back ribs, grilled octopus, hanger steak. Only the lobster mac and cheese was a bit disappointing. If they used 2/3rds less mac and cheese we might have been able to taste the lobster flavor. Hanging basket seating at some 2-tops made the experience different. Great service, good fun.

Just happened to stop in for dinner, and was very pleased by the atmosphere and the food. The sea bass was absolutely delicious. Will return.
