Service
 
This "hidden neighborhood gem" rewards "locals and tourists" who venture "off the beaten path" Uptown with an "excellent" menu full of "creative" Contemporary Louisiana offerings, all served by a "charming" staff in an "intimate" space trimmed with salvaged materials; the "awesome" weekend brunch entices patrons to "spend the day slurping up the Bloody Mary bar and swaying to live music" – just "make sure to make a reservation" ; P.S. brunch, minus the music, is also offered Monday, Thursday and Friday.

So much fun! This is a smaller venue that can get packed up fairly quickly, but don't let that turn you away because the crowd was fun. They had a live jazz band there on the weekend, and it really lifts people spirits. We went for Brunch and the food was amazing. I would highly recommend their Shrimp and Grits creation and make sure you have an appetite. They had two bartenders that were quick, efficient, and creative; So be sure to try on of their craft cocktails. Or, you might enjoy their Bloody Mary bar where you can create your own drink. I would plan to spend some time at the restaurant, and make sure to place your reservations. The food comes out in a timely manner and the wait staff was very attentive, but you'll want to sit and enjoy the atmosphere.

Pricey but big portions! Got the pork chop and it was easily 2 full meals for me. It was tasty but other items fell a bit flat (the fish, cornbread, greens). Service was incredibly slow; on a Tuesday night it took over an hour to get our food. Wouldn't recommend this as a good place to bring young kids nor if you're not ok with having a 2+ hour long dinner.

Nice restaurant, upscale, slightly off Magazine street. Food and atmosphere were great, focused on local cuisine - different from the fast/pub food focus on Magazine street. Pricey but worth the splurge for a special occasion like a romantic date. Very limited parking in the area. Reservations recommended.
