I live very close to La Barataria. I like to go and relax at the bar and to eat dinner as well. The entire staff is very friendly. The drinks are good and the food is excellent. I love thieir fruit and cheese tray. The steaks and fish are always a good choice. I find my out of town guests... More

Arrived at La Barataria and was pleased with the restaurants vibe and atmosphere. We had looked at reviews prior to our visit and was expecting higher prices, but they were comparable to that of Flemmings Steakhouse in Houston and the meal was really not worth it. The wine selection was superb, but they don't disclose that if you're purchasing a... More

We needed great food in a relaxer Ng and non rushed atmosphere... we got exactly what we wanted with fresh bread to die for, Caesar salad and a delicious filet cooked perfectly along with creamed spinach and lobster mashed potatoes.... Don't miss the awesome bread pudding and very attentive staff... We will hurry back soon.....

This place is way overpriced for whatever it s trying to be. Where else can you get a 52 dollar steak and eat it on a beach towel . Napkins were dish towels. ...and you want 4.50 each for shrimp. They screwed up the order and told us the would adjust it.....nope did not. Not worth it at all. They... More

A little pricey, but excellent none the less. Libbey was a great waitress and hostess. The bread and peppers before the dinner were a delight. The food was nicely presented and big portions.

We had an adult family table of six, with orders of sushi, tempura shrimp, grilled shrimp, fillet mignon, Caesar salad, and soft-shell crab. Starters: The bread (with dipping oil) was delicious, however the salt added to the oil (from a salt-lover's perspective) was much too heavy and the garlic flavorless. The sushi dishes were very nice...but at about $22 -... More
