Safa was an excellent server. Thank you for a wonderful evening.

I came here for dinner and sat at the bar. Service was very slow on what seemed like a slow night at the restaurant.

I had a cup of crawfish etouffee and the oyster dinner. The etouffee was good, but I would call it just an “etouffee sundae.” There was an almost full cup of rice with a tiny layer of etouffee on top. (See the attached picture.). You shouldn’t order this if you’re expecting any reasonable value for the price.

The oyster dinner was an ample portion but there was a strange taste on some of the fried oysters. It was as if the oil used to fry some of them had a bit of crankcase oil mixed in. (Not joking — that really was the flavor.) Only about half the oysters were affected, but it made for a pretty disappointing dinner.

Maybe there are others things about this place that make it worth while, but I certainly couldn’t tell from my one visit.

Thank James B

As noted in some previous reviews I like to try gumbo whenever I get the chance. This place was highly touted by one in our group. Was there early Monday eve and the place was virtually empty (2 tables in use). The service was adequate at first but went down hill as the meal progressed. 1 in our party wanted the Pasta New Orleans but they were out of pasta. Got shrimp cocktail instead - okay but kinda pricey. The gumbo was awful. Thin and flavorless are understatements! Quite sure it was the end of a batch and the cook just watered it down to fill the bowl which was very large. Both the chicken and sausage were way over cooked. The etouffee was quite good and I was able to switch it out for the gumbo and is the only reason this is not a 1 star rating.We also had 12 of the smallest chicken wings I've ever seen. Ordered first and served last ....
All that being said, I can understand the kitchen having a bad night. The real problem was when the bill came it was way off. They had charge for the pasta which was not served and charged full price for the wings which were supposed to be 1/2 off. Took 2 attempts to resolve the issue and the server was none too pleasant about it.
