    Make sure time is on your side and your very dependence on alcohol is low as well as your standards for good service

    Tried the alligator, first time trying it. Was a bit chewy and over seasoned (too salty). All in all though the food and atmosphere was great

    Avoid the fried chicken & waffles!! It's not boneless and the chicken was overcooked and dried out. Yuck. The other dishes, well, they're really not authentic New Orleans. Skip this place.

    Located in the heart of downtown, NOLA provides the best Creole food with an ambiance to match. There's no better location for dinner and a drink on Mardi Gras.
