The food here is creole inspired but they put a modern twist on it. I had a mirliton soap that had shrimp & crabmeat that was delicious. The crabmeat was claw meat that has a lot more flavor and the shrimp were large. I had...More

This restaurant is 'hidden' next to a bank in an unpretentious building. Easily overlooked. However, the interior is very cozy. Staff is great and food is very good. A local gem.

Excellent local cuisine. Really a gem. Less expensive than restaurants of similar quality in New Orleans proper. One of my favorite restaurants.

OMG!!!! De-lish!!!! Had intentions of trying to rabbit dish that is on the regular menu. However, there were too many great specials that made us decide to try the specials rather than the rabbit. We started with the Mirliton Bisque. It was a very smooth,...More

The food was good, the wine list very limited, and the service was a little above average. The atmosphere was less than average. I would go back in a pinch, but there are many other restaurants in a 20 mile radius that are better overall.

Been at this restaurant many times and it never disappoints. Love the mirliton soup, a favorite. The fish dinners are to my liking.
