“Great Food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2013 via mobile

Great food, reasonably priced...

They were out of cobbler - and didn't tell us until 20 minutes later... But it didn't matter: we were enjoying the atmosphere and good conversation!

“Great Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2013

Staff was friendly and knowledgeable. The menu has something for everyone. Watch their special of the day menu as they had some great bargains listed. Staff was more than willing to share the recipe with you.

“Nice place but average food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2013

The building is very nice and the jazz band was a nice touch. The wait was very long and they're waiting list system didn't work very well.

The food was just average. The didn't have a lot of options and the portions were very small.

We had breakfast and didn't try the lunch or dinner.

The service was also poor. After the long wait for a table, we also waited for service at the table. By that time we had a grumpy manager serving us...Very disappointed,

“Bring your stretchy pants!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2013 via mobile

Yum! Yum! Yum! This restaurant definitely lives up to its fine dining reputation. The food was to die for. Do not leave without trying the crabmeat cheesecake. It is a savory appetizer but could easily become a meal when paired with one of their fresh salads. The staff are informative, friendly, and quick to serve. The atmosphere is classy. A MUST GO restaurant in NOLA!
