El Gato Negro was one of my must stop restaurants on our recent trip to New Orleans. I had heard such great things about the margaritas, I just had to have a couple. My wife and I both ordered the Pineapple Cilantro & Lime margaritas which were delicious. We had two each. :) If rating the restaurant only on the drinks and complimentary chips and salsa, I would rank it 5 stars, however the service left a lot to be desired. After informing the waitress that we would only be ordering drinks (as we had eaten lunch a little earlier), she became disinterested and it showed on her face as well as her actions. It took at least 15 minutes for our margaritas to come up, and another 15 minutes for a refill on our waters. This could have been a one time instance, but we were taken aback. All in all, we would visit the restaurant again, but probably would get our drinks to go.
