“2nd Time as good as the first!”
Reviewed April 13, 2013

This is one of the wonderful hidden gems in the city inside the W Hotel french quarter. The food is creative, flavorful, and whimsically presented. The cuilnary team does a great job of mixing various flavors and presentation for some of the most unique items I have had in New Orleans. The decor is very trendy and they have a wonderful beer and wine slection along with a full bar. They do have mixologist at the bar (not bartenders) that will create any type of drink your heart desires. Just let them know what you like and they will create it for you! The squash beignets were over the top, the blue crab mousse amazing!!! The Kobe beef slider out of this world! Just sample anything you have a craving for and you will not go wrong here! Great atomosphere and great service! Can not wait to go back!

“Small, Delicious Portions”
Reviewed April 12, 2013

Minimalist in décor and menu. Our table had fried chicken, SoBou burger, mac n cheese, fries, and apple & pear salad with shrimp. Don't be fooled by the homey sounding offerings, because the servings are smaller than average; however, the food was delicious. While we enjoyed our food, I do wish SoBou offered more variety. On the night we dined, the majority of entrees involved duck or fois gras, which are not our favorites.

“BY FAR the BEST food in NOLA”
Reviewed April 7, 2013

Hands down, we had 10 items off the menut and all were top notch! You cannot go wrong here! Staff was great, place was very trendy and chic, went for lunch, great alternative to traditional NOLA foods. The tiny ice cream cones were amazing...won't tell you what was in them. Just order them! You won't be disapointed.

I had heard good things about this place, now I understand why. Interesting twists on classic Southern dishes. I will be back.

“Only went to the bar, best cocktails ever”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

The bar here is exquisite . It is a mixology bar. The drinks are handcrafted with precision, and thy are spot-on delicious. The will make any drink you want. Tell them what spirit you like, and they will make you your own personal drink. I had them make me a cucumber-jalepeno martini...it was superb. Abigail I think is the head bartender, she is creative, she is a master. There were 3 guys there as well. They were just as good. One even went out of his way to try and make us reservations at another restaurant. Another saved us from an annoying drunk guest. We had the Boudin balls as an app, it was very good. My advice, just sit back, enjoy some handcrafted excellence for a few hours.
