Believe the hype. The inside was very cool. The waiters were out of this world. I don't think I've ever experienced service quite like this. Moreover I had ordered a dish that didn't end up fulfilling my expectations and they took it off our total. It had nothing to do with the food itself, it was really well cooked, just didn't seem tasty to my pallet. I felt so bad but it was very nice of them to do that. Other than my dish (which I am sure others will love) everything else was exquisite.
I had a wonderful time here! I had made a reservation online well in advance, knowing we were coming from out of town, and they were very accommodating when we had to change the number of people due to a couple of cancellations. The décor is older but fancy with chandeliers and comfortable seating in the booths, with dim and soft lighting to create a more comfortable ambiance. Pretty upscale but not stuffy or overly formal - perfect for a nice dinner out or a special occasion. Like many others, I heard about their famous turtle soup, so I had to have it. It seemed more like a tomato-based gumbo, not too thick and not creamy like I thought it would be, finished with dry sherry. Very flavorful and the small turtle pieces are not very chewy. I would definitely give it a shot! For my main, I couldn't decide at all what to get since there were so many dishes I wanted to try, so I asked the waiter to tell the chef to just make something up, and my GOD was it ever good. What he put together was like me as a person - did he know me? It was crispy pork belly with house cornbread? stuffing, fresh figs, and blueberry hot sauce. It was absolutely amazing!! The wine menu is intense - you can find it online on their website. It's almost 150 pages long! They had a few on special when we went, so we got a bottle of white wine to share, though I can't remember what kind it was exactly. We were treated to three different desserts, including the Creole bread pudding soufflé, cheesecake, and some other whipped cream and chocolate tower of awesome. They were all so good, though a little too sweet for my taste but great to share. The soufflé is also a must-try - just make sure you order in advance at the beginning of your meal so that they have time to make it. We had THE best food and perfect service. I can see why it continues to do well! Definitely recommend it for both locals and tourists. Lives up the hype for sure!
I just want to say that the service at this restaurant is impeccable. The waitstaff was so nice and Accommodating. My family and I went for my sisters birthday and they made her feel like a princess. When she asked where the restroom was one of the waiters held out his arm and said he would show her. The restroom is also super cute and very clean. The food is very good. I ordered the filet mignon and it was the best I had ever had and I have eaten filets at many restaurants. When they brought out the French bread they served room temperature butter which is important to me because I can't stand chilled hard butter. Lastly the dessert was excellent! I had the cheesecake and it was out of this world.
