Stopped in for a late lunch and the place was still packing folks in but it could have been due to the NBA All Star game this weekend in New Orleans. No wait, plenty of seating indoors, enclosed patio and outside patio with large beautiful fountain. No Smoking on the patio. Servers are of local fare so feel comfortable asking... More

The environment was bustling and the servers were local and knowledgeable on the menu. The menu offered very good value and nice portions. Seafood was front and center. Crowd was mixed and quite loud, typical for New Orleans. Patrons beside us were very demanding of our server with requests every 1-2 minutes. People please you are not the only table... More

If you take a trip to New Orleans you will probably find plenty of well-known eating destinations advertised; but I recommend New Orleans Food and Spirits for the best oysters bar-none!

Have eaten here a number of times as a neighborhood restaurant. The food is always consistently good, hot and tasty. They also give you a liberal serving, so you never leave hungry. Last week, I had the sautéed redfish and since on a diet, did not want the French fries. The wait staff was so accommodating to help me pick... More

This is THE place. My wife and I come here more than I can even count. I bring friends from out of town and warn them: You will be mad at me ... because you cannot come back tomorrow. It is ALL good!

My friend and I went to this place last night , first time there. The server was very friendly. The food was fresh and hot when it came out. I would say that maybe adding just little bit more seasonings to the cream sauce would be one recommend. Other wonderful experience.

Our first time eating here. If you want a true Cajun food experience...eat here. The 1/2 order of hushpuppies came with 6 hot and scrumptious hushpuppies. We ordered the Catfish Loouisiann which is crawfish stew over blackened catfish and rice...so good. The gumbo is exactly how a Cajun gumbo should look, smell and taste...sa bonne. The shrimp and fish platter... More

We arrived for a late lunch, which ran into Happy Hour (will get to that later). We had gumbo and po-boys and they were excellent. The po-boys were so full it was a struggle to close them, and the gumbo had nice roux, good spice and lots of seafood. We're planning to try other items the next time we're in... More

My uncle and I dined here for lunch in December, 2016. He had been here before, and I had not, so I didn't know what to expect. What a pleasant surprise!!! There was a great choice of items on the lunch and dinner menu--primarily seafood, but there were sandwiches, and some Italian-themed choices as well. We ordered hush puppies as... More
