Restaurant was very crowded. Which was good for them, but a bit off putting during the pandemic. Tables could have been spread out better. Service was either stretched to thin or just not great at their job took a while to be waited on. The menu also seems to have been reduced from our last time.

As a personal friend of the chef, we (4 ppl) got to try more of the menu at one seating than most people. Appetizers we ordered were the portobello mushroom w/ olive oil and garlic, bisque & the char-grilled Oysters. Chef Lincoln then sent out fryed eggplant w remoulade & 2 each of oysters rockefeller, bacon and bleu cheese and bankok. We cleaned our plates !! We all had steaks which were excellent. One of our party had the garlic mashed which were great and the rest of us were leaning in that direction until our server listed Jalopeno Corn rice...wait...WHAT !! The rest of us had the rice !! Our dessert order was Coconut cream pie with carmel sauce but after hearing our friend was a bread pudding fan, that also came out as did a creme brulee. Needless to say we had a wonderful reunion with Chef Lincoln, met the owners and we will definitely be back the next time we are in New Orleans

I brought a special friend from Uruguay (Marko) who travels the world and is quite a cook himself.
We had the specialty charbroil oysters and eggplant with crawfish sauce ,,,,, Marko said , " my lips are still crying for more".
The waitress, Brooke was delightful, polite and she "floats" with service.
Also the cook Lincoln came and sat with Marko to converse in Spanish the various dishes ,,,,special.
Marko told the owners Rae Ann / Chuck he will be back in January with an entourage of guests.

As always, everything that we look for in our dining experience was perfection. We had a friend who came in from out of state and wanted to bring her somewhere nice. This was the ONLY choice for us. The food and service was on point! The owners really strive to make sure everyone has what they need and do a good job accomplishing their goals. The bartenders really know how to make a good drink too! The interior of the place is very appealing. This is a nice, upscale place if you’re looking for a fine dining experience or a laid back one. It’s an all around good choice.

The grilled oysters were good. The seafood gumbo was horrible. Found 1 shrimp and hardly any rice. It was like a bowl of thick roux. My 30 plus dollar T-bone was very thin and cooked beyond medium. The meat had alot fat and hard membranes running through it. Service was good.

Overall the food was very good, prices very reasonable, and the service was excellent. The spinach dip too heavy and too salty. The homemade taco chips were delicious! It was more of a creamed spinach with mozzarella melted on top. Not your typical spinach dip. The hamburger was grilled medium as requested. Meat was tasty, but the outside was very dark in color and over seasoned. The soup, pork porterhouse and filet was excellent. So were the bar drinks and the dessert. The owners and staff were very friendly and attentive. I will be going to this restaurant in the future.

The food was great however all 3 of my courses were nearly brought out at the same time. I didn’t even begin to eat my 2 course and my entree came to the table. That is just a huge pet pieve of mine.

Almost everything was great. The cream spinach was salty & watery. It tasted like a lot of garlic salt was sprinkled on top. For those that have blood pressure problem the salty food is a no-no. Also didn’t understand why it was watery, not cheesywater, plain watery. Everything else was real good, the oysters & the steaks.
