It was a very nice, quaint cozy restaurant. We ate early so, we were not rushed. Enjoyed the salad, it had a really nice, light dressing. The gumbo was ok. i like mine with more okra and more of a file taste. My daughter liked he sandwich. The only thing that disappointed (and I did not get a picture) was the bread pudding. Everywhere you go and everyone you speak to says that their's is the best. Well, this one was not. It was very sugary on the top, and if there was a liquored sauce on it, it was very light. The pudding part was also not very flavorful. It was a nice place to eat, but I should have tried the spumoni.

We dined here of an evening and had heard it was the only place that did not serve fried food.

The building is marvellous - very old and weathered and full of history. We asked for a table in the small outside courtyard and it was very pleasant indeed.

I ordered a meatball sandwich and my partner the New Orleans famous sandwich - muffuletta. Both were good and of ample size.

Don't think I'd come here again purely because the menu isn't very extensive but it made a welcome change.

Charming restaurant/bar though the general feel is perhaps a little 1980s with waiters in bow ties and slightly stilted service. However, out waiter was friendly, the food was good and was served quickly. They offer Pimm's (a famous British liqueur) as their house special which is often quite hard to find in the US so that makes for an unusual twist. Solid place to eat or drink in NOLA

fine lunch at this historic 100 year old spot. Good menu and good service in the wonderful building. Dining room dark so ate in patio and much better (or in the bar). Enjoyable lunch.
