Our company rents out the Embers (now named The Cornet) every year for a corporate hospitality event. The staff is great, the food is wonderful, and the location can't be beat.

The food here is tasty and delish. If you like sea food this is the place to eat, warm and comfortable surrounding and easy to get to. Just walking distance located in the French Quarters.

The location on Bourbon Street is awesome. Sit on the balcony and see all the happenings down below. The fried oysters were absolutely outstanding. I ordered the seafood platter. I liked the shrimp and catfish, but the oysters were my favorite.

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
