It was a busy convention week and few dining options remained, but we really lucked out when we chose Rue 127. We loved the creativity the chef showed in combining unique flavors and textures. Classic selections were served with a twist that made the meal very memorable. Steamed mussels were in a creamy aoli sauce and served with seasoned pomme frite for dipping. Scallops were served on a bed of fennel puree, with grilled leeks/fennel and a light grapefruit salad. My husband loved the combination of grouper with a pickled mustard condiment. The bread coating on the fried oysters was a bit too heavy...could only get the taste of actual oyster on the largest one. We enjoyed speaking with the chef, who has a local farm for the produce and steeps numerous liqueurs. These are used both in cooking and in unique cocktail options. The restaurant is located in a quaint home, with tables set up in rooms and a side hallway. We found our hallway table-for-two to be cozy and intimate. Half-price special on some wines didn't hurt. Definitely worth the price of a cab ride!

Stopped in here one night on a whim. The dress code seems to be smart/business casual and we were dressed very casual so we opted to eat in their patio area. The atmosphere was cozy and could be considered romantic. The server was attentive even very close to closing time. The food was AMAZING. The marrow bones were melt in your mouth delicious and the sweetbreads were creamy, buttery and overall just incredible. They also have a tasty cocktail menu that did not disappoint.This was definitely an exciting find. I would recommend this place to anyone!

Rode the cable car from the Frech Quarter. Decided to just sit in the bar and talk with bartender. Great choice. Full from a lot of New Orleans eating and drinking. Decided to order all the appys and sides! Everything was great! Fried chicken skins for $3! Really enjoyed this place.

What a great choice for dinner on a recent New Orleans trip! As a lone diner I was very comfortable and enjoyed the experience as well as the food. The duck was nothing short of amazing. I heard another diner talking about her wonderful roasted chicken, which she had also had on a previous visit. Friends have described the scallops as the best they have ever had. If you need a taxi, let your waitress know when you arrive. Don't miss this terrific restaurant.
