A New Orleans institution - saw some great music and and an enjoyable night. I would not call this a food destination - New Orleans has so many of those - go here more for the music and atmosphere. The food was OK - nothing to write home about. The night I was there Topsy Chapman sang - she was great (she featured as a slave singer in “12 years a slave” and also has been in several documentaries about the New Orleans jazz scene)

Nina the owner and your host for a truly wonderful N O meal has put together the combination of atmosphere, food, music that you will be telling your freinds about for years. This is old school dixieland, don't be in a hurry, call for res. this place is popular.

Wanted to hear some jazz with dinner. Palm Court fit the bill. The music was nice but not outstanding. The food was good but not great. But the thing that hit us was that the people who owned and worked there, loved the place. Stories are true about the dancing owner by the stage. It was quirky but I think goes back to loving the place. Wish we could have been there on Saturday night when a special performance was scheduled with a trumpeter, age 102. Would have loved to have seen that.

The food at this quaint Louisiana restaurant is amazing. I highly recommend the pork chop, the oyster Rockefeller soup and bread pudding. Also, the jazz is outstanding and the atmosphere is lovely for couples and is appropriate enough for families.

I made reservations and took my husband and father there for their Father's Day dinner. What an amazing place. The dinner menu was simple yet explosive. YOU HAVE TO TRY THE PORK MACCONAIS!!! Omg! It was amazing, melted in my mouth. We were also serenade buy an amazing band that included Mr. Mark Braud! It was a magical night of dinner and dancing, be prepared to dance with the restaurant's owner, she was great!!! You do NOT want to miss out on this establishment!!!
