We visited NOLA for a week and this is the only place we ate more than once. The charbroiled oysters were the best, as was everything else we ate there. Table service and bar service was good. Bartender Devan was friendly and made tasty drinks....More

My husband and I shared the 1/2 fried chicken dinner (comes with potato salad and a biscuit), also ordered sides of mascarpone grits and green beans. The food was great and the service was excellent. Not sure why this restaurant wasn't busier because it's great!

Never been disappointed there. I had intended to try a Shrimp Po-boy, but because it was an Italian restaurant, I had the Meat Ball Po-boy instead. It was very good, inexpensive and was a generous size. The wait staff was very friendly and informative.

Fabulous fried chicken! We dined here for dinner after a local recommended it. We liked the vibe, the ambiance, the perfectly not too cold a/c and most of all the food! We started with a caeser salad and fried green tomatoes. Both were outstanding. The...More

The gumbo was interesting, and the world famous chicken is famous for all the wrong reasons - tasteless and greasy. The hurricane was an average drink. Nothing we consumed was impressive. Hostess was friendly. Waiter was good. The owner/manager was not welcoming.

We were told that we had to have a real New Orleans po-boy sandwich and I was looking for one with an Italian background - so Fiorella's was perfect. Great French Quarter atmosphere!

Lunch was tasty - from the po-boys to their award winning fried chicken. Even better was Devin, the bartender. He made the visit entertaining, fun, and even taught us to make some drinks. What an asset to the place he is!!! Only regret is that...More

We went for the highly recommended fried chicken. It was a busy holiday and the staff was great. The chicken was good, the sides as well. It was a nice break with just simple good food

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs
across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied
around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the

We were there February 6, 2016 for dinner, it was just fine then! Haven't been back to New Orleans from the west coast since so cannot tell you any "updated news". A simple phone call to the restaurant should answer your... More
