I had recently visited the establishment for the first time with a group of co-workers and had the most fantastic evening. We were very impressed by the extensive wine list, the friendly and knowledgable service, as well as the nostalgic atmosphere. The cuisine was prepared perfectly by the executive chef and offered the perfect combination of Norther Italian and creole influences to present innovative and creative dishes. They are able to maintain very reasonable entree prices and the large, family style servings are more then adequate. We were offered a tour of the historic building by the general manager, and found the story of The Old Absinthe House to be simply enchanting. Tony Moran's truly delivered an unforgettable experience for me and my friends, and we will be going back to try the French Creole restaurant upstairs (Jean Lafitte's Bistro).
