We were already in great spirits with our decision to stay an extra night in New Orleans in the Warehouse District (enjoy being near the action but not right in the center of it) so finding Mike's on the Avenue early on evening was just the icing on the cake.

From start to finish, our meal was superb. We must have gotten there during opening hour because the place was not busy yet but I regret not going back later in the evening to enjoy the "buzz" as I can very easily envision what fun it is there when the crowds start coming.

The interior is sharp and pretty but on this summer evening we chose outdoor seating. We opted for several appetizers and a few drinks and were very content with the whole spread, the service and the atmosphere. Would love a return to NOLA and in doing so would wholeheartedly dine at Mike's on the Avenue again.

This is a wonderful restaurant. I was very impressed with the house salad an excellent mixture of beets, vegetable, and dressing. The bacon roasted oysters were worderdful, topped with caviar. The Bouillabaisse is excellent. This restaurant is located in a hotel but don't let that stop you from coming here.

Ate outside on a beautiful fall evening and service was great. My dinner was fine, but my daughter in law ordered a "Crispy Duck" special which was pretty much sliced raw duck.

We were staying in the hotel next door and saved eating here for the last night of our holiday.
It was not busy, in fact we were the only people eating and so the atmosphere was lacking but the staff put on a CD which would only play one track over & over again.

On a positive note, the young man who was our waiter 'Trey'? was attentive, helpful and even got the chef to 'cajun up' our meal.

Unfortunately I didn't start looking for a restaurant for a busy Saturday night until about 5pm. I found this one in a local guide book and was able to get a reservation for 7pm, unlike other well-known restaurants. Menu has potential and food was pretty good. Service was fine, but nothing exceptional.
