    I had a slice of heaven when I tasted my first bite of the Baked Salmon. So good. Try the homemade kettle chips hot off the stove. Really good w/crab dip. And don't miss Happy Hour from 4-8 pm.

    I really like the food. Its New Orleans style food. The music they played on the deck upstrairs was mello and relaxing. This is a really good date spot.

    The spinach jambalaya was my favorite but they removed it from the menu. The waiter was still able to get it made for me though!

    $10 bottomless mimosas every saturday and sunday, 11am to 4pm. The sausage links are delicious.

    Be prepared for a wait... But if you choose to sit outside you might just get seated right away! Great drinks + food!!!

    They add in the 15% gratuity here no matter the number in party or how the service is. Just so you know.

    portion sizes are big, except for dessert: bread pudding was disappointingly small. Don't forget a hurricane!

    This place has AUTOMATIC GRATUITY. So it's really a toss up whether you'll get good service or not....

    Ask them to turn down the dated pop music and play some jazz

    This is not a true southern New Orleans restaurant. The food wasn't not seasoned, the service was bad, and the atmosphere could have used more of a N.O. flava (e.g zydeco music, etc.).

    Hair in my crab balls... Do you think they adjusted my bill for my inconvenience??? Nope... Slow slow service... Very pricey considering the food isn't great! Good thing they have a service charge.

    WORST SERVICE EVER! We sat for 30 minutes with the waiter constantly telling is he would be right back. We finally placed our order with another waiter 45 minutes later. Some food never came.

    The Cajun wings were disgusting & undercooked. The category 2 Hurricane was NOT worth the $11 & the crab dip was disgusting also. Walk up the street to Hikari Sake bar & ask for Jeremy.

    Fair to poor food. Service really poor and yet they automatically add 15% TIP.Only good feature. The outdoor, rooftop patio was the only saving point.

    These guys have omelets, but no option for a side of eggs...even after speaking to the manager. Doesn't make sense.

    45 minutes later, still waiting for my food. Went to the bar to get my own refills of water and coffee. Server clearly has far too many tables. Has the manager ever been to a restaurant before?

    Nice atmosphere. Service could be better. No kid's menu. Food could be better for the price.

    Chicken & sausage gumbo was way too salty! Even the server thought so. They should fix that.

    Not at all accommodating for vegetarians. Come on, folks. This is DC! But they have Turbo Dog, so it's not all bad.

    1. Took over a hour to get check. 2. The server Ericka was on the edge of tears the entire time. 3. The manager Tabitha was rude and didn't care that entire was upset. 4. Eric is the only sane person
