    This is one of my favorite places in the French Quarter. I love the crawfish ettuoffee. The trick is to get here for an early to have the best experience. They have good drinks too.

    Last meal in Nola :) Bloody Mary yes!Enjoyed the jambalaya, heavier on tomato. Crawfish etouffee > chicken andouille gumbo > shrimp creole, but all were solid. Great table bread and warm service 👍

    Get a cup of gumbo and split the Creole Combination Platter (shrimp creole, jambalaya and red beans & rice). You could substitute the red beans & rice with Crawfish Etouffee for an additional $2.

    The bread pudding is phenomenal! Been back for a third time in less than a week for it (and it's not a usual favorite so hopefully that speaks for itself 😄)

    This place is amazing, and my first stop when visiting New Orleans. The chicken gumbo is perfection, and the blackened chicken po boy is delicious (and a very big portion!). A must do!

    Honestly, the gumbo was tasty but seemed to be missing that certain traditional flavor. Sometimes they have a different daily gumbo - I actually found that selection tastier than their "traditional"

    The Seafood and Okra Gumbo was great!! I also loved the Red Beans and Rice. A local recommended the place, I was very pleased.

    The chicken gumbo and the combination platter were really good. Don't be afraid if there's a big line up, it moves pretty fast. The fresh fruit daiquiris were also delicious.

    Gumbo is of course excellent but the crawfish étouffée is some of the beat in NOLA. Order a lot of side portions to try it all and ask to sit in the cozy alcove on the back side of the courtyard.

    Great food where you can really sample all kinds of Nawlins fare (gator sausage ayy) and tasty cocktails (honeydew daiquiri pictured)

    (+) The chicken gumbo was perfection! Seafood gumbo and jambalaya were great too. Start with a crab cake and end with the bread pudding!! (-) Cocktails were a little too sweet for my taste.

    The complete Créole dinner is a great deal. Everything was delicious, with highlights being the shrimp gumbo and the whiskey bread pudding. The Hurricane was a deliciously strong drink too.

    Yes, it's a tourist stop but there's good reason--this place is the holy trinity for solid gumbo, jambalaya & etouffe. Old-school quality service and a lovely courtyard to boot.

    Server appeared to hate his job and life but the food was great. Had sides of the etouffee, seafood gumbo, corn, and oh my goodness that praline sundae was divine!

    Don't let the long line distract you...great food. The Combo Platter was great as well as the Jambalaya. The service was a little slow and the only thing to lower the rating.

    Chicken gumbo and blackened fish poboy were excellent. Setting is historic, but the modern/ugly bar and the drop ceiling seem out of place with the historical character of the building.

    The gumbo was good, but the sautéed shrimp Po Boy was amazing. The bread pudding put a nice finish on the meal.

    This place is a hidden gem. No wait at all, really fast service and the food was amazing!! They bring you fresh baked bread to nibble on too. Try the crab cakes and the shrimp po boy... Mouthwatering!

    The blackened catfish, gumbo, and boudin I highly recommend. The crawfish Tasso pasta is inconsistent quality depending on the cook, so don't get IMO. Not too loud, not quiet either.

    I was skeptical because, you know, tourists, but the gumbo here is genuinely fab. Try their pepper and spice blends - magnificent.

    The creole combination platter and gumbo sampler was a great way to sample variety and not over eat! Ask for Brandon

    Went here on my last day on trio #2 to NOLA. Food is ok but it is very touristy. Try Coop's further into the French Quarter for awesome Jambalaya (and other foods!)

    Best gumbo you will have in New Orleans. Friendly and fun staff. Great location near Jackson Square. The wait is worth it.

    The bread pudding and icing (get on the side) dissolve in your mouth like spun sugar. The bread tastes like hot cookie dough. The icing was a box of confectioners sugar in a vat of butter. Decadent!

    Great gumbo! The restaurant has a cute small courtyard. Try the trio jambalaya, red beans and shrimp at once.

    Had the seafood gumbo and jambalaya--granted we got it to go and ate it in the back of a cab on the way to the airport--but still delicious!

    The vegan gumbo is not "new age vegan" but an old recipe. Made with collard greens I think? More like a soup. But tasty!

    Turkey and andouille sausage gumbo is hearty & spicy—a delicious choice. But, any of their gumbo will do just fine.

    Vegan/Vegetarians: Skip the Gumbo. It tastes like dishwater. Bland, flavorless, and off. However the Vegetarian Dish of the day was White Beans and it was amazing.

    Heads up: the closing time on 4sq is wrong. They're really open until 10:30pm. Also, the freaking best gumbo and crawfish étouffée eveeeer!!

    Gumbo was good but not great. Not much sausage in it. Try the jambalaya and a frozen daquiri (we had strawberry & melon- one of the best drinks we've ever had!)

    The alligator sausage is a must. I grew up in Louisiana and have only had gator fried — this is way better!
