Really Bad Idea

I normally don't write in all caps, but DON""T EAT HERE.

The place was nearly empty on a Friday night, which should have been the first clue. However, my boyfriend and I decided to stay, since it was right across the street from the Cafe du Monde.

We shared a fried dinner plate, and we both became extremely ill with food poisoning within hours. We were sick for three days.

Don't take any chances. There are many wonderful places to eat in the French Quarter--this is not one of them.

COOL! =) ill give it a 5

I actually liked this place. Sure, it's not some hole-in-the-wall local place that's cool because of its quirkiness or local appeal or whatever - it's kind of big and maybe a has a bit of a chain restaurant feel. Horrors! But the food was good! The waiter was very polite and attentive. I had red beans and rice...excellent. My husband and son had some weird Cajun omelets (jambalaya for hubby, seafood for son). I'm not a big breakfast fan, but they really liked them. And breakfast is ser...view moreved all day, which is what lured the hubby in.view less

I have eaten here twice, a year and a half apart. I don't know about the rest of their food, but I do know they make a fabulous crawfish pie. All the food that went by on trays looked good, too.

We read the poor reviews after sitting down for a meal here but decided to stay. I was sucked in by the promise of breakfast all day. Who among breakfast lovers could resist a cajun omelet? Not me. During our visit we enjoyed great, friendly service. And that jambalaya omelette was so very tasty! I think the difference in our experience was timing. It sounds like you shouldn't come here when it's busy or at least expect poor service, which I bet is true for many of the touristy restaur...view moreants. But Thursday night was fine. The water I asked for didn't taste like city water and I wasn't charged for it. Bottled water not required. 5 stars for a great experience and excellent food!view less

Their gumbo has always been good and their blackened fish I find quite tasty. I had the Sampler the last time we went and I was STUFFED by the end of it. GREAT bread pudding to top off the meal.

Place was great!

Took a nice Sunday stroll through the French Quarter and enjoyed a fantastic breakfast right on Jackson Square at Rivers Edge. Was seated quickly, and service was exceptional. I had a omelette and my friend who was in the mood for a Po Boy ordered the Shrimp Po Boy, in which he absolutely loved it. Wait staff was very friendly as we had our drinks refilled very quickly and their Bloody Mary's were fantastic. I highly recommend this place... the location, service, and food was all fanta...view morestic!!!view less

I'm surprised by the low ratings from other diners...I thoroughly enjoyed my meal. I had crawfish pie and grilled seafood. It was delicious and the service was great. Sat next to an open window and enjoyed watching all the folks on the street and at Jackson Square. Had coffee afterwards at Cafe Du Monde.

Everything was Good

i had to go back to my receipt to make sure this was indeed the same place i had been to. i noticed that most positive reviews are recent. i did not meticulously studied this but it seems that way to me which leads me to believe that the rivers edge is under new management or something. i can see how the wait could annoy some but you need to understand youre at the heart of new orleans. i was probably very lucky, i dont doubt it. i always am. we got seated immediately. they were really...view more busy but our server came by the table within five minutes with menus and asked us what we wanted to drink. we both got water and no, we werent charged for it. our server came back around and we ordered the crawfish pie and the rivers edge sampler. the crawfish pie was nice and spicy. i would eat two of those. the sampler consisted of chicken gumbo, shrimp creole, jambalaya... i thought everything was good, nothing really blew me away but i would definitely go again if im around, menu looks interesting. yeah, its not the cheapest place but youre in the middle of 'it'. yeah. didnt you see those two silver dudes breakdancing on a bottle crate just around the corner?view less
