“Best food we had while in New Orleans”
Reviewed November 3, 2012

The chicken dish (chicken rosemarino) was the best chicken I have ever eaten hands down. The rosemary/spices and crust were perfect. My friends had the oysters and duck and found it fabulous as well. It is a tiny, crowded place but the service still excels. Not sure the issue others had with wait times- we did have a reservation and were seated within 5 minutes. The waiting area was packed, so sounds like you should make a reservation. Don't miss it!

“Best Oysters I've ever had”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

Reservations are a MUST. I got the fried oysters as an appetizer. I have dreamed about them ever since! The pasta I ordered was to perfection. I would say its in the top three places to eat in New Orleans.

“Abominable flow management”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

We waited 1 hr 40 min and still were not seated or given any idea when we might be. Others had waited 2-3 hrs! Get a reservation system already. No restaurant should treat their patrons with such callous disregard. Hasta la vista Irene Cuisine. Thank you Stanleys.

“WOW! Maybe BEST dining experience EVER!”
Reviewed October 25, 2012 via mobile

Absolutely delightful from the moment we stepped in . We called about 2:00 for a 5:30 reservation . Got it . When we arrived the crowd around the door was unbelievable ( i guess most folks think they don't take reservations - so they go early to get on the evenings list . We chose to eat early - improves ability for a table
Our Waiter was excellent- knowledgable humorous - welcoming- & handsome !
Duck - outstanding . Lamb - unforgettable.
Veal- tender -superb . My meal was a special fish combination with sweet potato
An evening to remember !
