Very special and authentic place, fits so well to Berkley's vibe. The food is delicious and the energy is great! We started with Hush Puppies - so good! Buttermilk Fried Chicken - best chicken ever! Baby Back Ribs - must order! Can't wait to go back!

I came here with my nearly two year old son on a downtown Berkeley adventure. It was a bit of an atypical dining experience but we had a good time and I think the wait staff were amused to see what was a bit of an unusual family unit (a middle aged man and his toddler son out on a... More

Food is absolutely delicious. The Ribs and the Mac n Cheese cannot be missed. Great Jambalaya (hot!). Bookings are highly recommended, especially for large groups.

My wife and I had dinner here the past week. I had the "boneless southern fried chicken" (read chicken strips) which were moist. The sides - blue lake green beans and yams were served at room temperature. My wife had the gumbo (we played a game trying to find the shrimp in the gumbo). Service was atrocious -- well below...

Amazing Louisiana food! This is by far the best restaurant in Berkeley. Jambalaya and buttermilk chicken are awesome. The deserts are also incredible. Definitely worth the extra calories.

Had a yummy dinner before a performance at Zellerbach Hall. We did not have reservations - should have called ahead and save a 20 minute wait. We ordered the Oysters Bordelaise, Gumbo, Jambalaya, Buttermilk Fried Chicken, Creole Pecan Pie and Beignets. All dishes were delicious. Once ordered, the food arrived after about a 10-15 minute wait. Because we were going... More

The restaurant is close to my place. So, I go there several times per year. The food is really great, e.g. the fried chicken, creole shrimp, mac&cheese, dessert - all outstanding. BUT, it is always packed and the room is quite tall, so it gets really loud, to the degree that you have to start yelling and it is hard... More

This place tends to be very packed, but they do take reservations! We had reservations for a group of 7, and we had a great time. The hush puppies were good and I had a gumbo type dish. It's a unique place in Berkeley and easily accessible by BART.

Went on a Tuesday for lunch between Christmas and New Years. No wait. Good hush puppies, like cornbread with a little spicy bite. Fried chicken breast was tasty, spice was in the sauce. Generous portion of greens with the house salad. Also ordered a side of mac and cheese, creamy taste. Strawberry lemonade had some bubbles in it. Overall, a... More

Friendly staff, trendy building, and, above all else, the absolute best jambalaya I have ever had in my life. The rest of my party had different dishes that they could not stop raving about. This is one of the best restaurants I have been to in California. I can not say enough about how great this place is.
