We enjoyed the dinner and the setting. I am especially fond of the chicken Florentine. My only complaint is that it was too loud. The music was a nice selection of classical, but combining that with the noise in the dining room and it was hard to hear.

This salad is not on the menu so one has to ask for it--do ask. Service atmosphere and food were perfect for our group of 4. The tiramisu was devoured.

Wanted to eat at a local place. Getting in and seeing a hostess to be seated was a little strange. But after getting seated, the service was good and the food was great. Someone had suggested we try the Goat Cheese salad...it was EXCELLENT!

I laugh that this is all Monroe has to offer for upscale Italian eating. Looks like a place that has stayed in business from the "old money" clients. Located in a run down area of the garden district. Food was alright, service had a lot to be desired, if you want to come across as an upscale restaurant, the staff... More

We were visiting New Orleans and headed northwest to see family. Genusa's was chosen as it had a varied menu for our group with mixed dietary needs. Every single dish was absolutely delicious and they even prepared on amazing vegan option. The service was impeccable.
