    Charming and beautiful (pet friendly) terrace, friendly staff and the food was among the best we had in New Orleans. Delicious. We will definitely come back here.

    Favorites: catfish sandwich, shrimp and grits, cochon de lait, only complaint was the French toast was a bit dense and dry, make a reservation and request the courtyard

    Gumbo was excellent, couchon de lait very garlicky, yummy, and huge! The star of the meal was the Chocolate melting cake with chicory coffee ice cream- amazing!! We might have to come to get it again!

    The courtyard cocktail, which changes regularly, was a superb start (a Moscow mule variation that still haunts me). The food was all superlative, particularly the creole poutin, shrimp grits, gumbo.

    I love the Shrimps&Grits and Cocktails: ask for the Mambo Mule or any other with ginger; excellent service. Stay in the terrace and enjoy the view.

    Awesome outdoor ambiance, indoor was nice too, the shrimp and grits were delicious, the Louisiana linguine was yummy but very heavy

    Gorgeous courtyard with some good food. The crawfish linguine, shrimp and grits, and gumbo are tasty! The 9 layer cake is good too but a little too sweet.

    A great place to bring a date. The Chicken gumbo was absolutely incredible. I enjoyed the rye cocktail as well, but it was a little too sweet. You really can't go wrong with the menu.

    The Smoked Salmon Smorrebro on Challah bread with a side arugula salad w/ fresh dill and cherry tomatoes was just perfect. Sit outside if you can, the courtyard is adorable!

    Nice courtyard to sit outside. Order the shrimp and grits! Would skip the baked oysters with spinach next time.

    South side Fizz and Ruby Slipper cocktails refreshing and not too sweet. Shrimp and grits small plate just right for lunch and very tasty with a bit of spice to it

    Simply the best I've eaten in Nola. 3 people vs 6 starters is the way to go!

    It's worth the wait for brunch. Really wonderful food and the most attentive service! A really quaint place, too, feels like the old South.

    The seating ladies weren't very professional but our server was delightful! The brunch menu and cocktails were great!! The outdoor seating is quite lovely but can get hot in the summer.

    Absolutely yummy! I can also say that the corn linguini (forgive me for not remembering the exact name) was amazing.... And so was the berry crisp with vanilla bean ice cream!!

    Tip: Make reservations bc they have quite a bit of wait. It's the prettiest little place ever. Didn't have enough time to wait 45 minutes but next time will plan for this.

    Protip: order the meatloaf, cochon du lait, and two shrimp and grits. Share them between the two of you.

    Overrated I thought when there's so much good cheap food around. I was hoping for and craving super clean, produce driven cooking. I got greasy crab cakes and pasta with an overly sweet Riesling
