Awesome! Nice to have a great place to eat in a hotel if you chose not to leave the comfort of the hotel! Drinks at the bar are amazing!

Stopped in with a friend who took us here; it was great! We had a couple of their appetizers and something to drink; everything was delicious! Nice, intimate setting, friendly staff, and modern design. Will definitely go back for a meal on our next visit!

Met with friends for a weekday lunch birthday celebration. We were seated by a large window looking out into the French Quarter. The 25 cent martinis were great and definitely added to the fun. I ordered the gumbo and found it to be quite thick, but very good. I especially enjoyed the dollop of mashed potatoes on top. Several of... More

Went for dinner with friends - 'W'esque type decor - clean, minimal but seating arranged so that it feels more private. Friendly service, albeit a bit slow with plates coming out of the kitchen, but we didn't mind. Cocktails were quite tasty and quirky. We shared multiple plates. The sweet potato beignets were just ok (didn't taste any duck or... More

I went for NYE. I have a wheat allergy and emailed ahead to make sure that I would be catered for. I was told that there would be several options for me to choose from. The menu denoted which items were gluten free, of which, there was one starter and two mains. I asked to see if there was anything... More

Visited this restaurant twice, and both experiences were terrific! The food and craft cocktails are amazing and will definitely be returning. Upscale ambience, and also has an awesome bar. Highly recommended!

We stopped by for a quick drink and we were not disappointed. The bartenders are so friendly and recommended some great drinks. I recommend the Honey Buzz Milk Punch! It was delicious!!

Recommended by the Ritz-Carlton Concierge as the experimental kitchen for the venerable Commander's Palace, we enjoyed the small plates but struggled with our entrees. The vaunted ceviche cones with avacado ice cream were awesome, we also enjoyed the mushroom pate. Pork crackins were ok but could have come from a grocery store bag. Two of us has the foie gras...

Stopped in for some snacks and drinks on the cheap. And we were not disappointed! Gumbo was not super traditional gumbo, but still tasty, the chicken on the bone was awesome, smoked pork taco was great, and the drinks (I had the Yule punch) were lovely. Great service with a smile, nice to talk to, and even got to watch... More

Staying in French Quarter

Neighbourhood Profile
French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
