Maybe they weren't expecting diners? Yes it was a Saturday night.. but with Mardi Gras crowds, maybe they were expecting drinkers and not eaters? Not sure what the excuse was, but they seemed understaffed and unprepared to serve food. When our party of 6 sat down the restaurant was relatively quiet. Though we were ready to order everything at one... More

I had the lunch special...beef teriyaki with tempura shrimp/vegetables. It was excellent and included soup and white rice. The proportion was ample. The service was fine and the restaurant was clean and inviting inside. Dozens of sushi choices are available. Note: It's about two long blocks from the jazz clubs on Frenchman Street and much quieter.

I would expect that this will be the last time I ever spend my money in this place. In my experience, this place has usually had ok food with mediocre service. Well, the service (even though this waiter has been working here for a LONG time) just doesn't get better - even though I am a big $ ticket and... More

This is one of my favorite places to eat in all of New Orleans. Our friends live in the quarter close by, and many locals visit as well on a regular basis. The sushi is phenomenal, the wait staff is attentive, the drinks are perfect, and the regular entrees taste great. I tried numerous types of sushi and wasn’t disappointed.... More

Listen to me. Order the BBQ Eel sushi, the Frenchmen Scallops, the Wasabi House Roll, and the Baked Salmon. I'm trying to remember the names of all of the delicious dishes I've tried over my countless visits, but it's all a blur and I blame the sake. When visiting, please understand that this is NOT fast food. This is good... More

Went there for lunch during the French Quarter Festival and had great food in a quiet atmosphere, away from the maddening crowd of the Jazz Festival. Portions were large. Had the Assorted Tempura while husband had the Steak Teriyaki. Loved the Lychee Martini made with Sake.

I came in at 8pm on a Thursday night. The lounge was virtually empty and the restaurant was about half full, although most were already eating. I ordered the honey shrimp appy and some sushi rolls. The appy was good but after a 45 minute wait, the rolls were not quite as good as your average mall food court serves.... More

Staying in Faubourg Marigny & Bywater

Neighbourhood Profile
Faubourg Marigny & Bywater
Nestled between the French Quarter and the Ninth Ward, the Faubourg Marigny & Bywater environs are largely residential. Of course, folks around here love to go out and have a good time as much as they do anywhere in NOLA. And if out-of-towners want to join in the festivities, well then so much the better! Home to some of the most revered live music venues in New Orleans, an eclectic gaggle of gourmand dining destinations, and a come-as-you-are vibe that’s as infectious as it is alluring, this is real deal New Orleans oozing with southern hospitality and the promise of a most epic night out. For endless opportunities to boogie, to admire row upon row of lovingly restored homes, and to escape the fray of the more touristic parts of town (but still live it up in grand style) head to Faubourg Marigny & Bywater.
