    Ladies - try the "Cock & Balls" for dessert. It's actually not on the menu, you have to make a special request for it. It's a brownie & banana split shaped like... uhh... you know.. ;)

    Whoaaaaa nelly -- 80% of my nights out at Stanford ended up with a few hurricanes at Nola. Beware, they are not for the faint of heart.

    There's even less standing space in the main bar after they moved it further out in the remodel.

    The oysters are amazing. Be sure to go for the whole dozen and get the basil gimlet. I recommend going for a tapas tasting here. The mains are too big--and appetizers pack a punch.

    Food was meh and overcharged. They add unnecessary element to the food to jack up the price, eg. etouffee with scallop. Gumbo was bland. Not gonna go back. I miss good southern food!
