My husband and I had dinner on a Tuesday night at 8 pm. We had reservations and we were seated immediately. We had cocktails which were very good and the sizzling oyster appetizer was a nice touch. The real star was the buttery smooth scallops entree I had. I mean it was just perfectly cooked and presented so well. My husband had the scalibut which was also very good. We had a couple desserts to top it all off- creme brûlée- awesome! and the bread pudding with chunks of dark chocolate and too many nuts- did not enjoy it very much. We had a great evening and we will definitely go back next time we are in town.

I had my food at the bar. They were able to mix and match my fish plate with sides from another plate. Food was tasty. Worth a visit.

This was the BEST FISH WE HAVE EVER HAD... I can not state enough how wonderful our meals were. We loved everything. And they pulled out the red carpet treatment for my boyfriend's birthday!

It was our 15 yr anniversary. I noted that on the reservation without any expectations. They gave us a menu with our names and occasion printed on the menu. They brought a plate with a candle with happy 15th anniversary written on it. Just an example of how they go above and beyond. None of this was requested.
The food is great. It always is our best meal on each trip to New Orleans. When we visit new orleans this is the only thing that we put as a "must" for the trip.
If you go on a weekend I recommend reservations. There were several that attempted to walk- in at 6:45pm but there were not any openings for the night.
