    Service was extremely poor. Brought the incorrect drinks, didn't bring other drinks. States we never ordered them. One of our group ordered banana foster cheesecake and was brought bread pudding. Server stated that that the cheesecake was "regular".They did, in fact, have that cheesecake. Server was super sassy about their mistakes despite the fact that some of the food was actually good. Ruined the experience. It was as if we were mocked as we were leaving because we weren't happy with the server as comments were made as we left by other staff.

    So much drama to be seated. When I made reservations, I specified a single table or booth, not bench seating. Don't care to sit elbow-to-elbow with strangers. Hostess basically refused to give us a table until a waiter came by and said he'd take care of us. We ended up with a different waiter who ignored us for a long time before his first visit. Already frustrated with our experience, when our food came, my pasta seafood dish wasn't delivered; instead I got another dish. After looking for our waiter for about 10 minutes, I got up and talked with another server who apologized and reordered my food. My husband saw our waiter smoking outside on the sidewalk. How pleasant--not. The food was average at best. We had to search for him again to get our bill. Bad decision on our part for dinner but now we know.

    It was great food even though the service was a bit slow. We did notice there were mice everywhere and they were huge! There were also nice traps everywhere which made us a feel a bit uncomfortable. I know it’s New Orleans and that’s what you’ll get with the area but it was still gross to see them freely running around, especially with how big they were

    3 meals were very good. We had one member of our party with several food allergies and after focusing on only 1 of the allergies (gluten) they didn’t seem to understand that the gluten choices wouldn’t work with the other allergies. When our party member asked about other choices the waitress said they could make one choice work (the chicken). When the meal came, the chicken was dipped in flour. This didn’t work and the waitress asked once if our party member wanted something else but then never came back. So we had one member with no dinner. We ended up sharing what parts of the other meals she could eat and the waitress only came back when we were done. Although the food was good, we will not eat here again with such poor service.

    Horrible experience. Our food took FOREVER and when we finally received it, it was cold. The general manager told us for our issues (there were other problems) he would take a percentage off the bill. When we got the bill, that wasn’t done and when we asked about it, the server threatened to call the cops on us! It was a very racist response in my opinion. The general manager returned and we came to a resolution but while we were working with him, a rat crawled onto the counter. Super gross and a horrible experience so I do not recommend at all.

    Allowed a late reservation and then when we arrived was told the kitchen was closing in 15 min. Also the food was bland across the board and down right nasty in some. The sampler was unediable as the rice was crunchy. Was excited to try based on other reviews. And when we mentioned to the manager she was uninterested and dismissive. Our waiter was good which is why I gave them 3 stars for service.

    While the service was excellent and staff friendly, the quality of the food was atrocious. The Oyster Bienville was edible; however, the gator bites and the Grillades & Grits were so over salted they were almost unedible. We aren't talking creole spices or a brine soak - this was purely salt overkill. The grits "helped" temper some of the saline overload; but only because they were so underwhelming in their taste. They weren't infused with any flavor - we couldn't taste a hint of broth or stock - and save for a semi-sear, the consistency was lackluster. The Bienville and Grillade plates were cleared with well over half of what had been delivered. We truly wanted to enjoy what was presented; but it was difficult to not walk away feeling as though we'd spent the afternoon at a deer lick.

    Food was wonderful. Front of house...pooly managed. Upon seating, no silverware, napkins, driping g AC at next table, very loud busing of tables...plates/glasses thrown into bins, waiters shouting across the dinning room. Entrees delivered at different times. When pointed out to management...the lady only diverted to wait staff. No customer service. There are much better UX restaurants in NOLA!

    Not a great experience. No one from our group enjoyed their pasta dishes. Also ordered the Red Fish Pontchatrain, but it came out dry with barely any crab on top. For some reason, they brought my table plastic cups and plastic utensils while everyone around us had regular utensils and we had to ask to get regular Ute sticks once we looked around and realized we were treated differently. The service was slow and sporadic. We ordered Chargrilled oysters, which were very good, but they came out after salads and entrees were served even though they were ordered first, which wasn’t what we were expecting. For NOLA, we left full plates behind and were very disappointed.

    Food is definitely overpriced. The sampler is basically 4 bowls of rice, 3 shrimp, a few slivers of crawfish and sausage that are paper thin. Most of the entrees are mostly rice. And calamari was disappointing. Myhusband had a good piece of fried fish but over a large bed of rice. Pay for rice, rice, rice.
