Attended the Preview Lunch at the Restaurant today. Of course, you would expect the staff to need some additional training, since it was the preview, but this was certaining not true. From the moment we arrived outside, we were greeted by a pleasant staff who were more than accomodatable. We started with two appetizers, Crawfish Cornbread (5 star rating) and Spinich Artichoke Dip . A salad was served , which I enjoyed, but some commented that they did not care for. Thereafter, we enjoyed the Shrimp Skewers, with vegtables and grits, New York Strip and Filet. Everything was cooked as we requested and the steaks were served sizzling at the table. Desert was offered afterwards, Creme Brule' , Bread Pudding and Chocolate Cake, no flour, with scoop of ice cream. My only suggestion was that silverware needed be served with the appetizers. The food was very good, staff excellent and the atmosphere was upscale but relaxing. The pricing seemed a little high, geared towards more of upscale restaurants.
As a native of New Orleans, I know how seafood support to taste & look, I know all about Southern Hospitality, but what I didn't know was about "Superior Seafood and Oyster Bar on 4338 St. Charles Ave. I was told by some friends to check it out. My husband & I went during a Sunday brunch, which was very busy to say the least, but the service we received was passed 5 stars; from the time we sign in, until we left, The person who seated us to the manager him self (John Michael Rowland) we were treated as a very special guest, While I was waiting on our food, I notice that the manager (John Michael Rowland) and the entire staff was treating every guest special, so if you want some great seafood, and want to be treated as some one SPECIAL; check out "SUPERIOR seafood and oyster bar". We shall return. (The McClouds)
In town on vacation. I called for a reservation and was told I could be put on the wait list if I could tell them when we would be there. Good thing since there was a long line that would have been ahead of us when we got there. Following our GPS to find Landry's, we didn't know the waterfront drive was only one way on the weekends. It was after dark and we got stopped by a policeman. When we told him we were from out of state and were lost he gave us a police escort to Landry's. Since this location is right on lake Pontchartrain we wanted to sit outside to enjoy the view and warm weather. Our server couldn't have been better. We both had Red Fish meals and both were delicious. The price was reasonable and it turned out to be a very enjoyable experience. I would highly recommend this location.
Two of my friends were in town from Denver over Labor Day weekend and my BFF, who's another local, recommended we all eat there after partying all night in the French Quarter. I ordered the bbq roast beef poboy with potato salad and a drink. The poboy and potato salad was absolutely delicious! I felt like I swallowed the whole meal in whole without even inhaling :-O. I was reluctant to try their seafood gumbo because after having homemade seafood gumbo from my dad's girlfriend, doubt anyone else can touch that. I will be going back to Gumbo Shop real soon and try something else. Hopefully their other food items is just as good as the bbq roast beef poboy that I had.
I have always been a fan of K-Paul's dinner service. Definitely a must when in New Orleans. I had a chance to try the new deli lunch service this past Saturday and it was equally amazing. Definitely a departure from the white linen dinner service, ordering deli-style at the bar was a refreshing change. The staff was very friendly and helpful and the food was amazing. I had the best roast beef po-boy I have EVER had. My friends had the Chicken and Audouille Quesadilla and the Fried Oyster Po-Boy and were equally as impressed. The price was perfect for lunch. I would definitely recommend the deli lunch and the superior dinner service to anyone.
My two friends from Denver were in town visiting me over Labor Day weekend. We stayed at the Hilton Riverside New Orleans hotel where I ordered the half dozen of charbroiled oysters. One of my friends do not eat oysters but I kept telling him to try at least one because they were so good. I know good seafood as I am a native of westbank Nola. He tried one and loved 'em! Those were the best charbroiled oysters I ever had in my by far. Drago's is really pricey though so I won't be eating there a lot but it'll be a once a year thing for me maybe. My star rating is solely on my judgement of their charbroiled / chargrilled oysters.
Very well known, upscale restaurant in the French Quarter. It has a great menu which was not inexpensive but very well worth it. The food was most excellent. When dining out, I appreciate the food, the atmosphere and perhaps most importantly the service. The staff was friendly, respectfully and seemed to genuinely care about us enjoying our dining experience. I would give the atmosphere an A, the food an A and the service an A as well. I would definitely dine there again while in New Orleans and highly recommend it to others.
I have been to several Bubba Gump's around the country and I have to say that they are normally an easy 5 stars! New Orleans is a weird town with more nostalgia for it's heritage then it's environment actually lives up to, and I found the city pretty dumpy and dirty. Thank God for Bubba, which has a N.O. feel without the grunge getting under your nails and tongue. ;) Not the best Bubba, but still very awesome and the best food anywhere!
Have eaten there twice now and it was great the first time and just good the second time. The atmosphere is awesome, great music and great service. Bring the puppies for the outside seating, they are extremely pet friendly outside and will even bring you ice water in a bowl for the puppies too. I would recommend this for everyone and every family. Get the steamed buckets you won't regret it.
I don't care what The Food Network says...Parkway serves the best poboy to date. This place is hidden and really hard to find, but when you get there...the treasure unfolds. Another good thing is that they are open every day except Tuesday. Don't go to Domilise or New Orleans Hamburger & Seafood...come here. It's just so mouth watery.
