“Reality was less than the expectation”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2013

Over salted food, steak was OK but not great (have had better) and for $100 per person (with wine and dessert) it did not meet the hype.

“Very good, still prefer the original Emerils in NOLA”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2013

Atmosphere:Very Romantic. Dimmed lights, live piano player/singer. We where on the first floor, which has maybe 10 tables which makes it very quiet and intimate.

Service: The service was good, our waiter was very knowledgable. In the original Emerils we had our own waiter which stood by our table for our entire dinning incase we needed anything. Drinks where refilled before we had the chance to put down our glasses.

Menu Options: This is a steak house which is reflected in the menu and maybe why I still prefer the original Emerils which, has alot more options. My hubby is a Steak lover and it was his birthday dinner. I would have prefered more sea food / poultry options.

Trolly: The St. Charles trolly drops you off right in front. They also have vallet parking.

Romance: They have a Private booth which is very nice and private. By request only its right by the piano player which may be a nice proposal spot ;-)

filet Mignon was good not amazing
Rib Eye was amazing
Jalapeno Corn bread was great

They have alot of unique drinks, I tried the lindsy it was good.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2013

Very Nice Place..piano player in the bar,low lighting, good food,strong drinks and sweet deserts, oh Boy New Orleans! I was late we had a 7:15 reservation I thought it was 7:45, They saved our table, they did call us the night before to confirm our reservation. It was worth it...... I loved the entire experience ahh! Lets do it again!

“Great spot!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2013 via mobile

Great dinner! Great service! Would recommend both the gnocchi and sausage appetizers as well as the duck entree! The food was incredible. Our waiter was great! Their signature cocktails were all fantastic! MAKE A RESERVATION! Only down side is its location is fairly far from bourbon st. Approx a 15$ cab ride, but worth it!

“BAM”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2013

All I can say is that this restaurant is a must! Great service and excellent food. We arrived 15 minutes early for a 7:15pm reservation. The hostess was very accomodating and said that we could wait in the bar and our table would be ready shortly. We had just sat down and the hostess returned to tell us our table was ready. She lead us to the upstairs dining area where we were greeted my several waiters. We had one main waiter and all the other waiters came by at different times to check on us. The sausage stuffed olives were excellent. I had the veal special of the evening and my friend had a New York Strip. Both dishes were prepared to our likings. Overall, this is definitely a 5 star restaurant.
