    The waitress made us feel welcomed right away and was helpful with selections. The kitchen staff delivered the food and we never saw the waitress again until the bill. We would have ordered wine with dinner but never had the opportunity so just decided to pass. There was only one other table with diners so that was not the issue. Portions were good and the prices are reasonable. Food was good but not knock your socks off flavor. I’d say great for everyday but not for that something special.

    Food was the worst we have eaten in NOLA. Oysters were actually burned and the waitress just shrugged her shoulders! Fish was ok….outside hard…and just asparagus. Nothing else. Go somewhere else

    We had a reservation and we were requesting a window seat. He said there were other reservations, too but he reluctantly sat us there. The restaurant was mostly dead the whole hour we were there so not sure why the hassle with the window seat. Our waitress was nice but she would leave for long times. I could see her sitting in the back. Food was really good.

    Gene and Dior provided excellent service! We had two delicious appetizers that we shared. The corn and crab bisque was excellent. The pot of seafood gumbo was delicious and full of crawfish and shrimp. Seafood stock was evident in the flavor of the rue. So good! Finally we shared a shrimp Poboy which was overstuffed with shrimp on delicious French bread. We have dined at many restaurants over the years in Nola and we will be back! Thanks Gene and Dior!

    Took 40min for Server to take our order. She kept saying, I will be right with you, then told us about the menu, but instead of asking were we ready she jetted off. My coworkers chicken was burnt and overcooked, my oysters were over cooked. Out of salmon at 7pm, then when my coworker sent her food back there was no more chicken for that particular entrée. So she had to get a different dish.

    Despite the reviews we wanted to give it a shot as we were staying across the street at the Roosevelt. We ordered oysters on half shell, chargrilled oysters and pimento cheese app. Oysters came out before our drinks did and we were curious on how they could shuck and grill them that fast, and the chargrilled ones were Luke warm at best, tho they were very tasty. The pimento cheese came out hot, which we’ve only ever had it cold, which was a unexpected spin on it, but came with nothing to eat it with- aside from a spoon, no crackers/bread/chips or anything. And when we asked the server on what we were supposed to eat it with she said she didn’t know… so I asked her for some chips which they didn’t have and then ate it on saltine crackers…we didn’t stay to order dinner and kindly paid our bill and left. There’s the potential to be really good. It just wasn’t there that night.

    We had 10:45am reservations for breakfast/brunch and I would say the only thing positive about this place was the Bloody Mary which took about 10 minutes to get to our table. Things went downhill from there. The beignet and gravy were cold and our server forgot to add the scrambled eggs which came about five minutes after that. As far as our server is concerned let’s just say if you look up Apathetic in the dictionary you will see her picture! After bringing out our food we never saw her again. The other server working that morning had to get our check. I would tell you to stay as far away from this place as you possibly can.

    We were hesitant to try Legacy because reviews seemed a bit mixed, most of the negatives were seemingly service related . We loved the food but the service was INCREDIBLE! We were seated immediately (we made reservations), we were waited on immediately, and the waitress (I wish I had gotten her name ) was so energetic, very friendly, made our experience perfect !

    Service and food delivery were very swift. The food was well-prepared and tasty. I had the "Cajun Trio," that involved jambalaya, gumbo, and red beans and rice. All were good, solid dishes. Pricing was good. The noise level was fairly high, as the restaurant was packed, even on a Wednesday night.

    We made our reservation for 8:30 many days ahead of time. We were seated directly behind the hostess stand, which was a very inconvenient spot. Our waitress was very sweet, and tried very hard, but the bar and kitchen were in a state of confusion. She told us, after we ordered drinks, that the bar was backed up and we should go ahead and order food because the kitchen closed at 9:00. We didn’t get our drinks from the bar until after part of our dinner arrived. And even then, the person delivering the drinks didn’t know what the drinks were, and had to return to the bar to verify. Our two fish dishes came out first. One was piping hot, and the other was room temperature. One of them had been ordered with the sauce on the side, but came without any sauce at all. When we asked about it, we were told they ran out. The fish was pretty dry, so the sauce would have made the dish more palatable. It was a good bit until the two orders of the Cajun trio were brought out. Those two entrees were as expected, but did little to make up for all the other issues. We noticed problems around us. Wrong food was brought to the table next to us, and since we were at the hostess stand, we got to witnesses a to-go order bungling as well. Overall it was a disappointing dining experience.

    Came in for Mother’s Day. First Mother’s Day I have been able to spend with my mom in years. Food was pretty good we both got brunch dishes. I got the brunch burger it was good a little dry but good. My mom got the bananas foster waffles and she really liked them. We also got the powdered sugar beignet bites and they were amazing. Now to why I am not giving this place an overall great rating. Ordered an iced coffee when we sat down and it was full of coffee grinds then got a replacement but it then it was really weak coffee. The service was pretty terrible. My mom had to ask three times for a refill and we ended up having to get someone else to end up bringing it. Going to be honest wasn’t really impressed and won’t be going back.

    They were severely understaffed. Waiter and hostess were friendly and table was ready on time. Our appetizer and meal order were taken, but that is where the wheels fell off. Our food orders were wrong when they arrived. Our second round of drinks orders were taken but never delivered. Our waiter and any help seemed to disappear as soon as our erroneous food orders arrived. The place was packed, and there seemed to be hardly any help behind the bar, in the kitchen or on the floor. We complained to the manager and he was apologetic, but there was a certain “deer in the headlights” look as if it were the impossible situation to deal with. I feel his pain, but this was a total embarrassment for me entertaining my clients.

    Largely understaffed, especially on Easter Sunday. Unable to honor reservation times, what few servers and waitstaff that were present were completely inept. The busboy was an absolute rockstar and was more concerned with our meal than was the waitstaff. Customer experience was not remotely a concern. How on earth do you ask “How do you want your eggs cooked?” When ordering eggs Benedict??! The food was shockingly bland and flavorless, which is a difficult feat for any New Orleans eatery. Very disappointing experience. Not symbolic of a locally owned New Orleans establishment.
