Chef-owner John Harris "can flat-out cook" as evidenced by the refined French fare that "sweeps you off your feet" at his "elegant" Uptown bistro staffed by a crew that "aims to please" ; the "small" , "high-ceilinged dining room" "can become loud" , so some recommend grabbing one of the "cool cocktails" and dining on the patio.

This is the first time ever rode a zero dollar tip I normally tip 20 to 25% for great service my service here was an absolute zero Hence zero dollar tip. I was going to write a very long detailed review on this restaurant but I decided to keep it simple. My food he was very good at the drum fish which was delicious butternut squash and kale. I had asked myself or four times for a drink meanwhile he came back to my table to pour Everybody else a glass of wine and still hadn't a brought me my drink tequila in a glass neat by the way I said 4 feet from the bar.I was never asked for one dessert when everybody else's table was asked for dessert. The manager was weak while we were complaining to the manager the server was behind us making faces laughing like it was a joke very disrespectful. When you're at a table to table spending $2000 for dinner and you get to service of McDonald's it makes you shake your head. The manager was incompetent it look like he was strung on painkillers. Go here if you want to overpay for terrible service never again worst $150 ever spent I might even dispute with my bank.

Of the over 200 restaurants I've been to in New Orleans, this is always the first that comes to mind when I hear "poor service." My friends and I weren't dressed as nice as the other guests there for a wedding, so the the staff seemed to cold shoulder us. They were inattentive to our needs and came off as pretentious. I was interested to read that others had experience with snobby waiters as well. The food was fine, but it is everywhere in New Orleans--not enough to get me to come back.

Met friends here for lunch. What a disappointment!! My husband ordered their hamburger. It came out burnt and shrunken to the size of an Oreo. I am upset I didn't take a picture,..it was pathetic! I ordered chicken "stew" it was a leg and thigh in a black broth with onions. It was horrible! Don't recommend lunch! There is way better food in New Orleans
