    The waiter we had was interesting. another member of my party asked for a soda and a water, then i said make that two. He brought them the drinks they wanted and brought me 2 of the same soda. Wtf...?

    Our server was terrible :( not one of the employees smiled, the food tasted like it had been cooked in cleaning supplies, & they said 15 mins to seat us but it took almost an hour. Eat at CPK instead

    I am world traveled and I have never seen a server as poised and graced as Alex via. Make sure to sit in her section, and tip big.

    If you don't want a whole Orleans steampot order the crawfish alone!
