Staying at the hotel so we have eaten here a few times. Food is usually excellent, there one time the selections were overdone and dry. There isn't a wide variety of choices and the prices are a bit high. Breakfasts have all been good.

The service is excellent and the food is amazing! We enjoyed a late breakfast - the blueberry scones are a must have and the eggs are perfectly scrambled.

The ambience is good so was the service . The creole omelette was average with no real depth to it. The flavors were average for the bacon. No specialty breads.

Central Business District
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other
parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title
might suggest that this area is all about business and
little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you
away from the Central Business District. The CBD
offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be
touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the
world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts

Breakfast is casual. We did not eat dinner there but did have drinks at the bar and lounge. We did not see anyone in very casual clothing. So if not long pants then dress shorts. Hope this helps.
