    Our server, David, was very helpful with the menu, made good recommendations, and topped it off with a special dessert for my birthday. The only downfall was a local musician playing very loudly right outside of the front door. You could others in the restaurant weren’t pleased with the noise. However, you don’t come to New Orleans for the peace and quiet. ;)

    Fantastic food! Ike was the best server! We did not have to ask for a single refill. He treated us like family and went the extra mile when she soft serve machine went down. One of the best meals we have ever had

    Cool place right at the start of bourbon st, a little upmarket compared to others places around but still casual so no need for a suit jacket. That food was great, bbq oysters definitely a winner, ask about the chefs catch of the day too, if in New Orleans in the future I would definitely return

    The food was outstanding and the service was good. There was a street performer outside the restaurant playing very loud music. It was annoying; but the restaurant staff has no control over what goes on in the street.

    It was or first time there, but it won’t be the last. The brussell sprouts appetizer was sweet and spicy, the red fish with lump crab meat was tender and flavorful and the service by Mr Frank was superb! Job well done all around.

    Got there at 5 PM on a Sunday before the Steve Martin/Martin Short show. Had a fantastic meal! Brussels spouts went great with our drinks. My seared tuna was great and my wife’s shrimp and grits was just as good. Topped odd with the chocolate bread pudding. We’ll keep going back.

    Fabulous food in a lovely, relaxed atmosphere. Server was helpful and very friendly. We had a great experience! The BBQ oysters, shrimp and grits, and Amberjack (that night’s special) were all amazing, but we were surprised by the fresh bread — I think it may be the best in New Orleans!

    Every part of the meal (appetizer, main, dessert) was excellent. Service was spot on. Even in the smaller room it was too loud. Need to add some sound dampening to the space. I will go back the next time I am in NOLA.

    Food was disappointing. Had the red fish with blue crab the blue crab portion was to small the get a taste of. Red fish was over cooked and the little potatoes were stale and tasted like they were reused from breakfast. Waiter lied and said they had espresso martini though it was different mixes with chocolate shavings to replicate coffee beans. Our bill was over $100 for 2 people terrible waste of money. Tourist trap don't do it!
