Good food; excellent filet. Poor service. No alcohol. Only 2 tables filed (not busy) and food took awhile. Waitress had an attitude. Bill was over $80 and she said she couldn't break a $100 bill. (Wasn't $20 in the drawer??) she auto put 20% tip on do she didn't care.

We stopped in for lunch as we saw they had alligator on the menu. My daughter and I each had gumbo and an appetizer of fried green tomatoes and the alligator bites. The menu contained the expected New Orleans fare, gumbo, shrimp, red beans and rice, etc. Unfortunately the gumbo was only slightly above room temperature which was a turn... More

This restaurant had always been one of our favorite stops but we are taking it off our list now! Even though we had reservations and they were obviously NOT busy, we had to wait for them to pull tables together and set up. We had been warned about the loss of liquor license so brought a bottle of wine so... More

I know it's Halloween time but her attitude needed a disguise! Straight nasty attitude along with a chewy steak. When it was Star steak house it was terrific. Oh well. Saving my money for Chophouse from now on.

Stopped here looking somewhere away from Bourbon. They were eager to sit us and weren't busy. I assumed it was because it was only 7ish and things really hadn't started to ramp up up yet. However, the reason became clear quickly. Once the waitress came to our table, she informed us that they were not currently serving alcohol. We were... More

Our waiter, Jason, was so friendly and helpful! I got the chicken decanter and my husband got the chicken sandwich; both ate great choices!

We stopped into this cozy restaurant which served a delicious breakfast (All American Platter & Western Omelette) and coffee! The owner, Amer, was very attentive and was a pleasure to talk to.

My husband and I purchased a Groupon one weekend when we were in the city, and we really enjoyed our dinner here! It's a very small place but it's very relaxing and delicious! There was also live music.

My wife and I went to NOLA for the first time 12 years ago and have been back at least once a year every year since. We have eaten here every time. I feel that if someone asked where to go for a steak in NOLA,I would have no choice but to tell them Star.

Staying in French Quarter

Neighbourhood Profile
French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
