Place isn't open. Even though open table took my reservation. We showed up and found some legal conflict going on as evidenced by the locked doors, nobody present, and notices stuck to the window

The menu here looked very good with traditional meals and it was someplace new to try. They had some problems starting up and no one would answer the phone, so I wasn't sure they were open. I finally got someone early afternoon and was told they were open for business that evening. They should have stayed closed. I ordered the Oysters Rockefeller. They looked beautiful; large, plump oysters with a nice sauce. However, they were over ladened with Pernod where the alcohol had not been cooked out. I do not like the taste of raw alcohol in food. Next came the entree.....a prime filet, which was prepared like the Filet Stanley in the original Brennan's restaurant. I ordered the filet medium rare and it came out dry and medium. The server took it back and out comes another one the same way. By now I'm done..... obviously medium rare was not going to happen. The manager came over and offered complimentary desserts. One of my favorites is Crepes Fitzgerald, another Brennan's throwback. Sorry, no strawberries so I had to order the crepes with the same filling, but chocolate, whipped cream and almonds. The crepe was as thick as a tortilla, the whip cream was fake and no almonds. I really felt sorry for our waiter Ron. He comes from the original Brennan's and you could tell that he had the skills of the old line waiters that is so missing today. Too bad, this could have been an excellent restaurant if they had only opened after they had worked out all of the problems.

Probably the best combination of food and service I've ever received at a restaurant. While we did have some minor process issues – the overall experience was amazing. Would strongly recommend this restaurant to anyone wanting to experience excellent food, a relaxed environment and great service.
