Waiter very nice, recommended cocktail not that nice. The oysters a must. The shrimp with Remoulade very good. Don't go for the gumbo.

Thanks for coming in. Glad you enjoyed our food and service. I'm sorry our gumbo was not to your liking. I can assure you our gumbo doesn't come from a can. All of our food is made completely from scratch. Our chef spends an hour just making the roux for the gumbo.

My husband and I stumbled across this restaurant and bar when looking for a quick meal. The food was out of this world. Try the Crab Cakes - amazing; and the seared scallops with mushroom and wild rice. As true to their name they have a wonderful range of wines. Our wait staff were attentive, informative and generally just nice people. i would highly recommend for a quiet evening meal or lunch - off Bourbon Street but not too far away from the action. Well done.

They have a happy hour every day from 4:30 to 7:00. They have great food at happy hour and great salads. Their drinks are cold and the place is nice and clean. Great atmosphere.

Let the wife and daughter go shopping and people watching. Took a stroll to see what I could find. First found Cresent City Cigar Shop where the owner Armando turned me on to a great smoke, I asked him where I should go to enjoy it, by chance right next door is this hidden gem. Interior patio with ferns, palm trees and a fountain. Had the cabernet flight and the baked brie with strawberry and balsamic jam. Yum! Off the beaten path and hustle of bourbon. The menu looks great for dinner and the wine list is extensive. I will be back. Chelsea my server was polite and knowledgeable.

Food was quite good. Great little courtyard out back. Definitely a ‘casual’ fine dining experience. Happy, relaxed atmosphere.
