We had a wonderful dinner here celebrating my daughters 16th Birthday. We were a party of 7, and all had excellent meals. Our server was outstanding, and we truly enjoyed the ambiance and the overall experience. Deserving of the top rated restaurant in Lafayette!

Food was good but not served piping hot. No specific waiter assigned to our table so it was confusing to make requests. Atmosphere was pleasant and staff helpful

I don't believe they have a round table that big, but they can put tables together. there is also a small private room right behind the hostess station that might be a good fit for a group that size.
