    Shirmps wrapped in bacon with ground grits, and I'm on top of the world!

    We went just for the highly-rated pecan pie. It was the best pecan pie we've ever had, with a thick layer of crunchy pecans and the caramel layer soaking into the flaky crust.

    The food, staff, and atmosphere went beyond my expectations. Pricey entrees but very chill, with sports bar option, in case the game is on. Waiting with or without reservation is reasonable.

    Incredible! Service was immaculate, atmosphere very authentic NOLA. The table split: the trout pecan, lobster risotto, truffle butter filet mignon, lump crab cake, lemon ice box pie (best ever!)

    That honey ginger something or the other pork chop!!! The only other place once could find such a thing has to be in heaven.

    Really classy place for a bite to eat. Tasty bloody marys and delicious gumbo. Servers are very classically dressed and it gives the impression of being back in the 20's.

    Pork belly is so good! But the Mr B'a shrimp BBQ is definitely killing it! Remember to keep the sauce for the bread!

    The wood grilled fish was amazing! Got them to do a jasmine rice with it instead of potatoes. The sauce was a a lemon butter sauce, green beans still had their crunch! Definitely coming back here 🐠

    Every item I've ever ordered here was great! Always get dessert, the bread pudding is one by which to judge all others. The service is spotty. Sometimes great. Last visit our waiter was super slow.

    Filet was amazing!!

    Skip the gumbo, crab cakes, etc. and go for the pork belly and figs. Follow up with the lamb chop. Win, win.

    Bethany Hawkins · February 14, 2014
  • April T.

    this place has the WORST gumbo I've ever eaten, the gumbo yaya! it tasted like the rue burnt, it was more of a tasteless soup and all the meat was dry. not what you expect when you are in new orleans

    April Truley · January 12, 2014
  • Kari K.

    Everything I've eaten at this restaurant was absolute perfection. The molten chocolate cupcake with ice cream and raspberries was delectable.
