This place was recommended by a co-worker who had seen them on a food channel. I love N'awlins (been there several times) cuisine and decided to try them out one Friday evening (9/21). A friend and I got there about 6ish. We were impressed with the decor. We sat in the back garden which was nice. To start we ordered drinks. They were very expensive. 15 and 12 dollars. We then ordered appetizers. I wanted alligator bits and my friend ordered napoleon shrimps with fried green tomato. The presentation was great, the alligator bits. ..so so. The shrimps were delicious but they were served with fried RED tomatoes. I complained. Our waiter asked me if that was unacceptable. I said of course. He went back to the kitchen and came back with a plate of fried GREEN tomatoes. Why didn't we get GREEN tomatoes in the first place? The atmosphere was nice the music that night was so so. The lighting in the garden after it got dark was non- existent except for a blaring spotlight shining out from the inside area. I ordered Cajun fried chicken as an entree. The crust was very hot, not tasty hot, just hot. The chicken was not fresh. We ordered the flourless chocolate cake for dessert. It tasted like a devil dog with ice cream. Needless to say we were very disappointed and when the bill came we felt like we were robbed. I have to mention that our waiter Leo was very good and tried his best to accommodate. I will however give 4 stars to the bathroom great decor. I will not go back there for the food. High prices, mediocre quality.
