The food was excellent. The service was good. The restaurant was very loud and I would have preferred quieter dining that night. Modern chic atmosphere

This has to be the best food for the price in NOLA. You can get a fantastic pizza for $12. We had frog legs that were amazing. You can get glasses of wine for $8-$14. Nice atmosphere and excellent service.

Good food at a moderate price. Accessible wine list and attentive service. First floor is active and sometimes loud, second floor better. Third floor quiet but unattractive.

we experienced poor service and average food. I so wanted to have a great meal but our appetizers were either overcooked or greasy. The service was slow, really, really slow. I felt the ambiance was kind of strange, are we in a sports bar or...More

This restaurant serves some amazing food with equally great service. Not sure if there can be anything done to reduce the sound levels but that would be great. Our waiter recommended the drum fish and it was truly a taste sensation. The gumbo was perfectly...More

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
