My husband took me to Beignet's on the Corner for my birthday as a surprise since I had been wanting to try it out for awhile. The location used to be a small wine bar, so we made reservations since it was a Saturday night, just in case it was full. When we arrived, there were just a few empty tables. It is decorated to look like a New Orleans jazz bar and the lighting is low, so if you do like to really "see" your food and what's going on, you may not be impressed with the cozy atmosphere. Service was adeqate up to this point, and our server seemed knowledgeable and able to make wine and beer recommendations. They even serve Abita beer, which is a local New Orleans brew. We both ordered a cup of the shrimp bisque, which was very rich and delicious. I had a salad, which was pretty much just a salad. For my entree, I ordered the paella, which honestly, I found to be quite bland. I had expected more, I guess. My husband had never had a beignet before, so I told him he had to try one, so we ordered some after dinner. That was when the wait came. We waited so long that our server even apologized for the wait. Then, the beignets were definitely not what I had remembered to be so tasty when I was last in New Orleans. All in all, the experience was OK and I would maybe go back, but if there were other new local establishments to choose from, I would probably go there first.
