The BBQ Shrimp were ok, but the stuffed mushrooms were a tad bit on the dry side, so I tried to sneak more shrimp b/f the wife noticed. My steak& crab cake were both extremely dry & the sauce for the crabcake didn't help at all. Overall, it didn't live up to my expectations.

My husband and I come here every visit to New Orleans! We have never had a complaint. Our steaks were cooked to perfection and the mashpotatos were out of this world. We will continue to come back for years to come. Never have we been dissapointed! Excellent food, Excellent service & Excellent atmosphere!!

Mouth watering lobster

Star Joey is fabulous. He was so friendly that we kept hugging him. The lobster tails for wonderful and there is nothing like fresh lobster. We walked the entire French Quarter and got the best prices for lobster at Star. I had two lobster tails, a salad and a baked potato with everything on it for only $25. I got an extra side dish. The lobster tails comes with one side. Service was great and everyone there is extremely friendly and anxious to help you. You can't find a better place for lobster. Be sure to give Star Joey a big hug from the two women in St. Louis.

Best please in the French Quarter

Penny was our waitress.... she works every day but Thursday and she was fabulous!! We went on our 2nd night in the city and we're going back again before we leave. The whole experience was just wonderful. Joey at the front door told us all about the menu as we were walking in. We were very impressed and would recommend this to anyone visiting New Orleans

Fantastic Find

My husband and I travel for business and eat in many restaurants every week. This was one of the best meals we have had in recent years. The seafood (lobster, shrimp, crab and Oysters Rockafeller) were cooked to perfection!!

Amazing Food ,Terrific Service - Great Find ! A Must Try Restaurant

We recently spent six nights in New Orleans over the New Year's Eve Holiday. For five nights we walked right passed this restaurant - on our way to and from the ""Known Name"" restaurants. Each Night Joey would greet us coming and going. He would smile and invite us in for drink, or bite to eat. Finally on our last night in New Orleans we decided to have dinner at Star. What a nice surprise ! The food was terrific, the service was prompt and attentive. We enjoyed our dinner while listening to some great jazz music. We enjoyed our entire stay in New Orleans, but our last night was something special. Star Restaurant is truly a 5 Star Restaurant in all categories. I had the twin lobster tails, and my honey had the porterhouse steak. Both dishes were cooked perfectly - the garlic mashed were to die for, Although we did not have much room for desert, we ordered the chocolate cake. We cleaned the plate - scooped up every last crumb and bit or cream !!! Yummy Place. Be sure to wear something that stretches when you eat here!

looking for a good steak and seafood restaurant? you wont find it here.

Although the environment was atmosphere was delightful, i dont see how any of these people have rated this below average establishment with 5 stars. in addition to it being extremely over priced (i.e. a 1 and a half pound lobster for $30) it doesnt even taste half as good as the other reviewers claim. The lobster was just boiled and served with butter, the t-bone tasted like soemthing from IHOPS value menu, and the ""baked"" oysters were half-assed.

The all beef entrees were served with extremely soggy and bland patatos and ""vegetables"" and the lobster came with a baked patato, which was the only thing i actually enjoyed there.

All in all, this is only a restaurant that pleases your sight not your taste. There are many other quality restaurants that i would rather go to than here. If you are a local, dont come here. there are TOO many good restaurants you can go to other than here. if you want quality seafood and steak go to Dragos. Excellent steaks and beautiful lobsters, priced accordingly to their size. (a 3 pound lobster goes for $35). Also Acme oyster house has great baked oysters that actually taste great and resemble actualy oysters. Not to mention, Drago's char-broiled oysters are the city's best.

Best Lobster dinner in town.

My friends and I go to New Orleans at least twice a year and never fail to have dinner there at least once. The lobster is oh so good, melts in your mouth. My friends enjoy the steaks which are excellently prepared.
Joey is the Best, he goes the extra mile to please everyone. We love him! He always remembers us. The recently remodeled decor is beautiful. The service is excellent. The prices are reasonable too.

Star(Joey) Best Restaurant in New Orleans

Star ""JOEY"" he's the star and the restaurant is terrific. My colleage and I are from New York and have traveled on business to New Orleans for the past 12 years. We happened upon Star about 8 years ago and have been eatting there ever since. We take all our clients to Star and Joey makes everyone feel as if they are the ""Star of the evening"". We stay at the Marriott on Canal this past trip we stayed 3 nights and ate at Star (3 nights). We could eat anywhere. We cancelled out of Commanders, just to be with Joey. Yes, they're stuffed muchrooms are wonderful, steak perfectly cooked, lobster tails unbelievable, soft shell crab to die for ( by the way listen to Penny if your lucky to get her as a waitress her suggestions are right on. Oh yes, let's not forget the Bread Pudding, to die for. Well I think that 's 3 nights worth of eatting. As I said it's the best, it's relaxing and what more can we say about JOEY. You can't miss him, he's always outside greeting everyone as they walk by. The best customer service in New Orleans. Thank you for making our evenings restful and enjoyable. mb/gz
