My husband and I enjoyed seeing a bit of New Orleans culinary history, though it didn't quite live up to the hype. We were seated in an odd area and didn't have a great table, despite making a reservation well in advance. It was kind of dingy, and other tables were rather loud, so not the most romantic ambiance. The turtle soup got a positive review from my husband, and I liked the Tequila Mockingbird 2. The filet mignon was good, but the sauce and accompaniments were all on-note. The bread pudding soufflé was the same. The service was on the slow side. While the busboys were great, we waited long periods to place orders and get our check as our waiter conversed with other tables; it seemed to be a busy night.
Love this place.  It has an old southern vibe that makes me feel a little weird, but the food and drinks help to negate that feeling.  I have been twice, enjoyed everything that I have tried (because a group of us go and all order different things and share).  And if the food isnt enough the super cheap martinis (they are either $.25 or $.50-cant remember) will definitely get you together!  And don't think because they are cheap they are weak...i always leave with a nice buzz.
Enjoyed a lunch here with my wife while on vacation. Lots of restaurants talk about $.25 martinis at lunch, but typically it's some sweet juice and vodka. This place had the real deal - generous and delicious! Ate from the set lunch menu which was delicious. Turtle soup, quail and bread pudding soufflé- each course better than the one before. If I go back to this city, this place will be on my must-do list.
