Had lunch there. The gumbo ya-ya was disappointing. The service was poor--waiters bumping into people who were standing and in their chairs. Couldn't get a waitress to give my the check. Chaotic.

Our final day in NOLA, had a wonderful lunch at this restaurant. The shrimp were the biggest and best I have ever had, and believe me, as a Floridian, we do shrimp. Steak is also wonderful. Highly recommend.

So other than the pretentiousness of the place, this is one of my favorite restaurants to eat in NOLA. My go-to is crab cake and the shrimp and grits entree. It's so good! Make sure and get reservations in advance! It can be a long...More

The grits in the shrimp and grits were a cloud of cheese and butter. Yum. The BBQ shrimp were plump and tasty. However, the bowl of gumbo was not worth $18. Not sure I'd come back.

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
