Enough veggie options. Nice atmosphere, outside, but away from the street. Service was good, nice hot towel to start with, a bottle of water on the table. Big portions of food and a tasteful cocktail.

I had a Caesar salad and the jambalaya. It was amazing. Customer service was also great. I will definitely come back. The desserts looked great but was too full to try them

Response from Rob G | Reviewed this property |
