“Neighborhood Restaurant - One of the Best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 14, 2013

Wife (Poached Shrimp Salad); sister (Arugula Salad); brother-in-law (Rare Tuna, Arugula and Tomato Sandwich) and I (Seafood Gumbo) thought this restaurant was/is a real find! Off the beaten track, reasonable prices and great food!!! The Seafood Gumbo was to die for. The Tuna was absolutely excellent. We recommend this restaurant to all who visit NOLA.

“Good food, very slow service for drinks and food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2013

Place was not packed but busy on a Thursday night and the waitress promptly got our drink and food orders, but then there was a long delay between getting our drinks...and then getting our food...for drinks, ordered the drink specials of sangria and mango mojitos - no flavor of mango in the mojito. We ordered oysters charbroiled and raw - both were good but took awhile to get them. Then there was another delay of finally getting our main entrees. The food was solid, but with so much time between drinks, apps, and dinner AND all the other restaurants to choose in the area, not sure I would head there again.

“Great seafood! Will return!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2013 via mobile

We got the crab meat boudin balls & the crab Benedict .... Both were original, but delicious!!! I would definitely recommend this place! Perfect location on Magazine and very clean/modern interior with a outdoor courtyard area as well. Most of the staff was very helpful and nice also!! :)

“Variety of oysters.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2013 via mobile

Very friendly service and good variety. We only tried the char grilled oysters and spinach salad. The oysters were good but needed more charing and garlic butter. Spinach salad was good but more dressing needed. They were very nice to split the salad. They have outside dining as well.
