    Love the duck. Gumbo is good. Biscuits with the jelly are good. Actually, everything I've tried is good.

    Charbroiled Oysters are fantastic. Corn and crab soup is amazing. If you're in Washington DC, you must visit this restaurant.

    We sat outside on a weeknight and the service was rather mediocre, at best; however, the BLT salad and duck were pretty good, and I was told the same of everyone else's entree.

    I live on the other side of the country, when I'm in DC I always come here at least once! Quality, creativity, flavors, presentation to portion size I give this place 5 stars!

    Good for lunch or dinner with a nice menu of the Louisiana classics. The gumbo & jambalaya are good. Plenty of nice seafood option. Sunday Brunch is a must try too.

    What's good here? Sadly, not the gumbo that they're supposed to be known for. Lacking in flavor, lacking in heat (spice). The jalapeño cheese grits were tasty, however.

    The free biscuits with pepper-jelly butter, BBQ Shrimp, Turtle Soup, and Chargrilled Oysters. Po'boys are the best in DC, but are only available on weekdays at lunch.

    Extremely comfortable "table for 1" section above the bar area that's got great chairs and relatively quiet compared to the rest of the restaurant.

    The best dish on the menu is by far the CHAR-BROILED OYSTERS- smothered in butter and Parmesan, grilled on the half shell and served with a baguette!!! OMG! Orgasmic!!!

    Their happy hour cannot be beat. Three signature cocktails for $5 each and bar bites at $5 make this a great after work/early evening option. Sit on the patio if the weather is nice!

    The crab cakes were delightful. I was very pleased with my duck entree. Other items to try are the beignets and pecan tart. The grillades and grits with veal are also good.

    Charbroiled oysters are phenomenal. Eggs acadiana crab cakes are a good choice- generous with potatoes- maybe too much. Seafood crepes are a good appetizer
