    Celebration for Tulane graduation. The staff accommodated a change to the reservation time because of weather delay. The food was fantastic- all of it! Desserts beyond expectation. We willl be back- maybe tomorrow!!

    I went for their special Tequila Dinner on May 8 and I was blown away by every bite, smell, sip, interaction. Every time I leave The Bower I'm already planning my next excuse to come back

    The food and vibe at The Bower always makes me happy. This Conchiglie with Louisiana crawfish was so good it made me smile. Kinda like how the sun does on a nice Spring day.

    Beautiful establishment! The wait staff is very nice. The food was average. Initially it came out cold so they took it back and reheated it for us. I believe they just put the plates in the oven. The food was a little warmer but still not hot. We decided to just stick with it. My ratings for the items we had Beet salad - 10 Cacio de Pepe - 2 Chicken parm - 7 Beef short rib pasta - 5 Bolognese pasta - 9

    Really lovely spot, but super noisy as it got crowded. Service was nice, but the server was good but was clearly struggling with a heavy load of customers. We ordered a collection of small plates which were beautifully presented and very good overall.

    The ambience of the outdoor patio was great and our service was very good. The food was a little bit disappointing compared to our expectations. Our starters were excellent, but our pasta dishes could have been better. Mine even came out slightly cold.
