Neat restaurant with excellent food. The crabcakes and scallops topped our list. The warm bread with seasoned butter was a great treat. The courtyard was full, but we had a great experience inside. Everyone there was very friendly and attentive. Our waiter Ron recommended several wines and we enjoyed them immensely. A must for those staying nearby. Luckily for us, we were staying closeby. Highly recommended.

Our NO landlord recommended this restaurant for quality and price and he certainly was right! We ate in the courtyard which is intimate and peaceful which is surprising given it's close proximity to Bourbon St. The highlight of the meal had to be the Saffron Mussels. I love mussels and have eaten them a lot and really haven't had a better dish anywhere. The gumbo was exceptional as were the barbequed shrimp (although they still had the heads on). Our friends had the crab cakes and stated they were exceptional. We stuck with several appetizers all within the 9-13.00 range. The service was excellent and overall we would highly recommend.

When you go to New Orleans, it really depends on what you want to do (and remember!). For us, this place was a saving grace. It is right in the heart of the famous and extra-noisy Bourbon Street, in the French Quarter. It must be the buildings in between, but the noise disappears here, leaving you with the nicest atmposphere. The people who eat here are both locals and tourists, with a range in age from the 20s to the 80s. The food is very good, some is comfort food at its best, some more innovative. The wine list is really well assorted and so are beers and cocktails. Even if your table is ready, stop at the small welcoming bar and speak to Oosha, wonderful addition to the team and very knowledgeable about the area and the place. We were blessed to have met the owner of this place, who also owns the "hand granade" bars, who gave us a bit of history of the place! This place saved us from the terrible noise (too much too often) and terrible food (and cheap drinks!) of Bourbon.

we sat in the courtyard on a cool night in March and could not have been more comfortable. they have heaters in the umbrellas which kept the temperature perfect. the service was excellent and knowledgeable. we had three appetizers--barbecue shrimp, crabcakes and angus medallions all of which were delicious. sitting in the intimate courtyard you feel far removed from the bustle of the french quarter. highly recommend for the food and the atmosphere.

We needed a dinner spot for one night of our trip and decided to take a chance on this place when our top choices were booked. BEST DECISION! We were seated in a cozy lit-up courtyard outside and our waiter, Bennett, was super attentive without being overbearing. We ordered the spinach salad, scallops, crab cakes and bread pulling. Scallops were AMAZING, the other items were delicious as well. Hands down my favorite meal & dining experience in NOLA.
