Success! Thanks for posting your review of Mara's Homemade. You’ve done the world some good today.

Worst EVER

have been to my fair share of restaurants ,

I am a gourmet cook and commercial fisherman.

I also know what New Orleans food is suppose to at least emulate, THIS IS NOT THE PLACE i would NEVER go again .

From the crappy jalapeno cornbread to the soggy jambalaya,, the shrimp feast was horrid they were soggy spongy shrimp that are claimed to be shipped from the bayou,cooked FOUR ways and ,covered in zatara

Homemade fun.

I challenge you to find someone who would not consider the atmosphere charming. And the food is quite good, at reasonable prices.

Best Restaurant in the City, hands down.

I've been dining here for years. Ive read all thr reviews about the staff being rude, mean or rushing people out. Ive NEVER EVER experienced any of these.

The staff has ALWAYS been courteous to me and my wife.Ive had birthday parties here and family gatherings. Ive taken half the restaurant and Ive taken a single table by myself, Ive always enjoyed myself. Food has always been spot on (especially the BBQ). After e

Will not be returning

Went there last night to meet a friend for dinner and was asked to leave after inquiring about a table and a fifteen minute seating wait (with 3 tables avail). I was told that a big party was leaving and that we would get two seats up front. Those tables were cleared and they sat others waiting who had arrived after. I asked about our seat, reminding that we were also waiting, and was told, ""Probably will not be abl... view more

Key Lime Goodness!

It's hard to find good Key Lime Pie in the City. Too often, the taste is wrong, the texture is off or worse: it tastes pre-packaged. That's why it was a delight to discover the perfect Key Lime pie at Mara's Homemade! \r
The taste is sweet with the right balance of key lime. The texture is firm but creamy, complimented by a thin graham crust. Best of all, there's no whipped cream or other frippery to dist

Smells like a public TOILET!!!!!!!!!!!

I can't believe this place is once again a top NYC BBQ spot. The restaurant smelled like an open sewer when my brother and I went last summer after it had just made the list. The food is horrible, the drinks weak, and the atmosphere like something out of a Third Avenue, frat-boy nightmare.
Anyone who thinks that this is good BBQ has never had it...and has no palate.

Never AGAIN!!

I do not recommend this place to anyone. It was by far the most awkward dining experience of my life. First, they couldn?t seat us right away even though we made reservations (no biggie, pretty normal). But, literally 5 minutes after we were seated, both Mara and her husband came to our table yelling at us because we had not ordered yet. On top of that, it took 20 minutes for our drinks to come, not to mention, they ... view more

Mara has inspired me to write my 1st review on CitySearch in 8 years of using the site. If you are looking for the best po boys short of going to the Washington metro area, RUN to Mara's. Being a New Orleans (N.O.) BK transplant, I have tried them at most other other New York area restaurants (Cooking with Jazz, Mardi Gras, Delta Grill, Stan's Place, Bayou, ect) and another that has since closed in Hell's Kitchen. \r... view more

Best Etouffe, Hurricanes & Barbecue - Friedliness Abound

We love Mara's for the great New Orleans food & barbecue. We also enjoy being there because we are always welcomed by Mara & her husband David & usually served by daughter Hannah. What more can you ask for?! This cute little restaurant serves great food that ishard to find anywhere else in the city - like crawfish boil and crawfish etouffe. One bite and it takes you back to New Orleans - pre-Katrina! The barbecu... view more

So Much for ""Southern Hospitality""

Upon arriving to this restaurant, we were rushed to sit down because another party was coming to take our place at 7pm...we arrived around 5:15pm. The woman seating and serving us was very nasty...whom we believed to be Mara herself. The food was authentic according to my good friend from New Orleans who was in our party, but extremely overpriced. Mara acted like it was a chore to wait on our party of 8 and tried ... view more
