Initially we sat out to dine across the street but the wait was long so we ventured over and peeked inside Maspero's. The history of the building, architecture and mood drew us in. We visited during the July 4th weekend, they were very busy but...More

I normally wouldn't write a review if we'd only been to a restaurant to have cocktails but I need to make this exception. This place is beautifully laid out, small but intimate. The bartender was personable and knowledge. In addition, she was funny and so...More

A very quaint restaurant. Loved the setting which really made our dining experience. Service was good, prices average around $20.00 per plate. Food was good and tasty. Everyone in our party enjoyed their meal. Bathroom was not the greatest, NOT the cleanest.

Barkeep was friendly and observant but not overly asking if you were doing good. I stopped for lunch and had the alligator, which you should try! It was good! The atmosphere is bar and grill so fun. Enjoy a quick stop in.

of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs
