  • Venue is quite far away from the main French Quarter strip - about 25 minute walk - and all the better for that. There is a bar, a dining room and a music room. I was told I'd have to book a concert before I could book a table for dinner. Fair enough. Did all that and booked a table. When we arrived at the restaurant they didn't have the booking for dinner. But - despite being very busy we were seated fairly quickly. The waitress serving us was really friendly and efficient. Food was excellent. Highlight of the evening was the concert in the music room after dinner. Outstanding Jazz in a relatively small, intimate room.
  • Amazing! We saw Charmaine Neville and she was divine! Small intimate venue and she took the time to speak to guests as well. Staff out at the bar, along with cocktail servers were great! Made us really feel welcome as if we were regulars
