Louisiana lagniappe is one of those restaurants that are consistently good. In fact, their food gets better and better. And, it is definitely worth the wait!

This is a very special restaurant - great ambience, great service, and great food! I love to take out-of-town visitors to experience real Louisiana fine cuisine, and also love it for family celebrations or just a night out with my husband. C'est magnifique!

This moderately priced restaurant features seafood, but also includes a few steak and chicken choices for our friends who don't enjoy seafood. Each menu item is seasoned with that little something extra (lagniappe) for a delightful dining experience. My guest and I enjoyed an appetizer,...More

I could eat here at least once a week, my favorite dish to order is the stuffed Bell Peppers, but any Fish, Shrimp, or Oyster dish is awesome as well! Boudin Balls as appetizers are a must as are Martinis! Time for another visit, Hubby...More

There is a semiprivate room that holds a small number of people. I'm not sure how many people. You will need to phone the restaurant and ask.
