First of all, It took 30 minutes for us to receive our complimentary bread...which was good..however it took an hour and 30 minutes to receive our entrees..one order out of seven was completely wrong..one meal was over cooked.. the rest of the food was good but not great at all..You will over pay for your meal at a vacation spot...

Definitely an overrated dining spot. Tried to order wine by the glass but told we needed to guarantee at least 2 glasses each if the glass was $12 or more. Fine...we ordered the bottle....they didn't have the bottle so had to spend $20 more on the next option. Ordered raw oysters....received Rockefeller...sent them back immediately and waited over 35 minutes... More

Our 2nd visit here. Service was excellent. Setting at the marina and inside ambiance very pretty. Enjoyed the Eggs Florentine and my friend liked her Andouille Sausage Hash. Check their menu online. Nice presentation. The servings were way too big to finish. I liked my Margarita...it had a hint of grapefruit. We'll be back.

First the restaurant is hard to find on your first visit. Large sign telling you go left, we /drove till road dead ended and no restaurant. After backtracking we found it. Turn right at the first street after left turn. Certainly an atmosphere all of its own. (For you former Detroiters, it reminded me of Pinky's on E. Grand Blvd.)... More

Arrived at La Barataria and was pleased with the restaurants vibe and atmosphere. We had looked at reviews prior to our visit and was expecting higher prices, but they were comparable to that of Flemmings Steakhouse in Houston and the meal was really not worth it. The wine selection was superb, but they don't disclose that if you're purchasing a... More

We needed great food in a relaxer Ng and non rushed atmosphere... we got exactly what we wanted with fresh bread to die for, Caesar salad and a delicious filet cooked perfectly along with creamed spinach and lobster mashed potatoes.... Don't miss the awesome bread pudding and very attentive staff... We will hurry back soon.....
