The food was really excellent. I had the BBQ shrimp. Although the portion was small, it was priced appropriately at $12.00. My girlfriend had the hanger steak. It was seasoned and cooked perfectly. And...the service did not exist. 20 minutes to take our order, 30...More

We popped in around 3 pm on a Thursday and sat at the bar for a snack. At the bartender's suggestion, we had the sausage (yum!), stuffed chicken wings (good but a lot of breading), and the wild boar sausage pizza, which was a little...More

We thought it would be amazing considering the reviews. However it was very disappointing! Everything we ate was either too salty, overcooked and undercooked, or lacked flavor. There are too many restaurants in NOLA to try and many less expensive options. Save your money and...More

My family are Emeril fans from way back, and wanted to visit one of his restaurants while in NOLA. We are glad we went, and tried some of his signature dishes. Arrivied about 6:45 and beat the Friday night crowd, and were seated right away....More

I like that this place wasn't 'stuffy', but it still served 'fancy' delicious food. I had a reservation during mardi gras for 4 people and last minute they graciously allowed me to add 4 more guests whose dinner plans fell through. GREAT service, delicious food....More

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs
across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied
around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the
