"Incredibly talented" chef Frank Brigtsen is a "wizard with seafood" , putting a "wonderful" "spin" on Cajun-Creole "favorites" at his "tucked-away" Carrollton cottage where the prices are "reasonable" for such "reliably" "delightful" dinners; the small, "quaint" rooms have a "warm, comfortable" vibe and the staff is "so friendly you may feel like you're at home" , so some may need reminding that it's "not proper etiquette to lick your plate clean."

I went here with a group of girls and our meal and the service was absolutely fabulous!! I would say the prices were reasonable for what you get. All of our dishes were wonderful! Some of my favorites were the scallops, seafood platter, and pecan pie! They have a great selection of wine as well! I would definitely make a reservation if you plan on eating here. It’s a small, quaint space located in a shotgun house in uptown, New Orleans. I am a huge foodie and from New Orleans and I would definitely rate this as a new top favorite for me!!

Amazing food. Amazing staff. Amazing chef. I can't say enough about the entire Brigtsen's experience. (Get the shrimp and butternut squash bisque too. You don't be sorry.) I have eaten here OFTEN and I have never hear a bad experience. Delicious!!!

Probably my favorite restaurant in New Orleans. Chef Frank Brigsten is a genius. The food is always fabulous. Don't think I've ever had anything there that wasn't very good. The restaurant itself is old small house. Which means your table might be in a hallway or one of the small rooms. But its cozy and charming and you don't feel crowded. The service is superb and it's relatively quiet. DON'T miss the pecan pie. It truly is the best thing I've ever eaten in New Orleans
