We had a friend tell us to go and try it out. This place was great. From the food to the waitstaff. Very clean and unique if you are looking for that special occasion.

The food and drinks were delicious! I ordered the rabbit and it was as good as advertised. The service we got was outstanding and our waiters, Robert and another gentleman, were very warm and welcoming. If you are in NOLA, you have to try this restaurant.

Everything we had at Kingfish was out of this world great! The rabbit dish is incredible and all the Prohibition-era drinks were divine. Our waiter, Robert, was absolutely fantastic and we loved every minute. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone. Robert took great care of us!

A stylish restaurant. Small but perfectly formed cocktails - Doctors Orders (bourbon, creme de cacao, Benedictine) and a Blueberry Hills with blueberry vodka. Great olives. Our mini buffalo 'slider' burgers were so slow in arriving but tasty. As were our mains which took so long the manager took the time to reassure us they were on their way and chase our order. We were then well looked after with complementary large glasses of Merlot and two fabulous deserts in recognition of the long wait for our dinner. Don't let our experience put you off as the food is good and the excellent wine and delicious desserts demonstrated their attention to customer service. My chicken and smashed potatoes were excellent, as was the other entree, seafood and alligator cassoulet!

Stuffed Jalepenos were great to start. Olive salad with the french bread was a nice touch.
We had the Kingfish and the Seafood Cassoulet.
Dessert: Sweet Potato Pecan Pie and Caramel Apple Bread Pudding for dessert.
Everything was great!
Loved the cocktails (although they were on the small size).
Staff were all wonderful / our server Jeremy was excellent.
