The food was very good and the atmosphere was wonderful. We ate outside in the courtyard. There was another couple and a table of 6 being served so I don't know why we had to wait so long for our order to be taken. The service was very slow and there was no excuse for it. That being said if I was to return to New Orleans I would give it another try. However, it was a very nice start to a night on Frenchmen St., which from the restaurant you can walk to.
