I went on a Wednesday night as I wanted to hear live Zydeco music. The 4 piece band with accordion, fiddle, drums and guitar were excellent. The Mulate Cajun fried fish dish was large but nothing special. My server Mary Alice was very efficient. I...More

Delicious! Family shared onion rings, jambalaya, and muffaletta. More than enough for us all to fill full. Best part of the dinner was the bread pudding. Can't wait to go back.

I put this restaurant as a "must-visit" after my favorite travel website called it "legendary" for its Cajun cuisine and live music. I don't know about the live music as I went on a Sunday afternoon, but the food certainly didn't live up to the...More

Loved having the Cajun music to listen to while eating. Good food and the staff was friendly. They even had CD's that you could buy from the band.

A block from the HILTON and river, this large old building contains delicious and reasonably priced food. At 8 a band strikes up and locals hit the dance floor—they even ask you to join them and learn the steps. Terrific experience —don’t miss it.

This place needs to step it up a notch with so many other options nearby. The food isn't bad at all, just so so.

I ate here with some colleagues while at a conference. The place is huge. The portions are big and the food is really good. You can get both grilled and fried fish items and the side salads are nice. The staff is super friendly and...More

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

Any of the above but you might want to do appetizers with drinks. Most people will have dinner then stay for The evening to watch the dancing.
