    This was the absolute best dining experience I've had in my 33 years of life. From the moment we walked in, everything was perfect. The service was unmatched. Our server, Reese, was friendly, knowledgeable, patient, and prompt. We will be requesting to be with him every single time we visit in the future. The bacon wrapped shrimp and wedge salad are to die for. The Gulf Fish Acadien with red snapper is 100% the best dish I've ever had in my entire life. I was SAD when I took the last bite. The lemon tiramisu was out of this world delicious. We have officially found our new Saturday night spot. P. S. Did I mention how awesome Reese is?! Ask for Reese! Tell him Aaron and Ciara sent ya!

    Took my wife there for our 10th anniversary. There was a card on our table that said happy anniversary signed by the staff it was a nice personal touch. It was our first time dining there I’m very happy I picked this place. Great atmosphere loads of history and just the right balance of cozy and class. Second was the other customers which is not fully under the control of the restaurant but can greatly effect the experience they fit right into the cozy/classy environment and I felt very comfortable dining there. Last but not least the food absolutely perfect we will be returning in the future.

    Food, service, ambiance and wine list was so good we came back two nights later during our short stay in Lafayette. Excellent rack of lamb, fish of the day (rock fish) and filet. The appetizer sampler is worth trying as is the turtle soup. Good selection of Napa reds and very good cocktails. Quieter atmosphere which fits the restaurant’s general elegance. Our waiter, Grant, was attentive and helpful. Highly recommended

    Started out in the bar, as we had arrived early. The person working the bar was fantastic, knew his stuff. The waiter was very frendly and knew the menu, as is he had tried every item. Very knowledgable about the specials. He was very attentative to our needs, making sure everything was perfect. When I made our reservation on line I answered that a special occasion, my wife's birthday was the reason for our visit on that night. The staff had all signed a card for her, awsome. Next time we are in Lafayette we will be eating here. John S.
