I visited here for lunch and had a great meal. It's bigger than it looks from the outside. Food was good and they had a lot of choices. I'm really sensitive to spicy hot foods, and my food was spiced to provide enough flavor without the heat. The decor is unique and very colorful. I didn't get a chance to... More

I was disappointed this past weekend with the food and service! We took my father for his 71st birthday... it was not the food we have had in the past. No dressing for the salads, catfish lacked any flavor or spice. Our server was rarely around. They were not busy. He forgot to bring all of our coffees. Terribly disappointed... More

We love going to Nola's to sit at the bar and have a cocktail. The menu offers yummy apps with a New Orleans flair. The bartenders are always great. Good for happy hour.

The food was terrific, the stuffed peppers were great and the crawfish pasta was very good, but very rich. Luckily, we shared and the combination of both meals was great! The service was also very good.

I went here for a team lunch. I've never been here. I have been wanting to attend. After being in the heart of New Orleans , I had something to compare it to. I had the blackened CatFish. It was very good. Much different because of the spicy Cajun to the food. As if I was in New Orleans. Recommend... More

Great Cajun style cuisine in the North. Loved the Cajun Catfish with collard greens. They make some of the dishes gluten free, which is a plus! Make reservations, this place can get packed!

We heard good things from friends about the dinner, so read about a brunch deal and decided to give it a try. We actually ordered Brunch Jambalaya. It came in a 6-7" cast iron pan and had a smallish portion. It had two shrimp, sausage, uniform cubes of potatoes, an over easy egg mine had a hardened yolk; my husband's... More

My husband and I were in town on business. This was our first time visiting Pittsburgh. We were told we should try NOLA. I am so glad we did. It was wonderful! We enjoyed a fantastic lunch. Gator, fried green tomatoes, shrimp and grits, NOLA salad, NOLA club, beignets, praline cheesecake, and the best sweet tea. (It was Valentine's Day... More

My wife and I stopped in for a few drinks Saturday, Feb 4. We heard that NOLA has live music on Saturday nights and wanted to check it out. The music was great. The bar was not overly crowded, even with the band playing. The drinks were well made, but the service was slow.

Had an excellent meal here. Great and attentive staff, beautiful food and a small but well ranged wine list. Alligator was excellent, steak very well cooked, catfish best ever. Meal was superb. No room for dessert. Highly recommended and worthy of its Zagat rating.

Thank Geo-Cooks
