Dinner with friends and never disappoints. The service is outstanding and the food is delicious. You will need reservations and they will not sit until everyone is there. I used OpenTable and had no problem. One of my friends told the waiter to box up leftovers to go when the table was cleared. The server did not hear her, we... More

We did not have reservations but arrived close to 6:00 p.m. for dinner and were seated immediately. The staff was welcoming, friendly and attentive without being overbearing. The food (duck, filet) was delicious. It can be a bit noisy.

I made a reservation for 6 on a Saturday afternoon. This was the weekend of the All Star game and the parades. I thought it would be more busy but to my surprise the restaurant was about half full. The service here is great as well as the food. We had shrimp and grits & shrimp and crawfish etouffee. Both... More

Awesome service by all the staff. I had spare ribs and they were great didn't even need a knife. My husband had the fried chicken which he enjoyed. The triple sampler desert of creme brulee was awesome. I have to say my favorite was the coconut. Can't say enough about the great service and nice atmosphere. Would definitely visit again... More

I wanted and authentic southern meal and this was a great choice! Starting with the gumbo of the day, I was able to experience a spicy sausage gumbo which hit the spot. The portion was just right for a starter and the flavor was perfect, just as I had anticipated, a rich and creamy gumbo. My main dish was the... More

Had made a reservation for dinner in Dec for 3 people. The greeting was not overwhelming and our table was in a corner which was very cold from the AC. Service was ok - nothing exceptional for the large number of staff. We ordered cocktails and a beer plus a bottle of Chablis ($68!) Appetizers were nice - shrimp x... More

My experience here was overwhelmingly disappointing, starting from the time my friends and I entered the restaurant. Now, I must admit, the ambiance and atmosphere were both very nice. And, Greg, our waiter was amazing. But, aside from that, the dining experience was just not that great. We had reservations and still had to wait an additional 15-20 minutes before... More

Service was perfect and not one meal out of the ten was terrible. Crab cakes are delish, the Drum was OMG!!! Shrimp and grits was the best I have ever had. And their version of the Manhattan was so perfect. Worth the wait and the price.

Many famous restaurants lose their edge when they become famous. Not NOLA . The food was absolutely perfect and the service was even better! My thanks to Nat, our waiter, he made the evening for us.

Staying in French Quarter

Neighbourhood Profile
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 Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
