“After several visits where we explored the classic Creole menu, we began sampling the nightly special. With that we are told, the chef creates a meal from what is best in the market that day.

“Arnaud's Richelieu Room offers a completely different experience than the main dining room, which is gloriously sparkling from beveled glass windows and crystal chandeliers. The Richelieu provides a live Dixieland Jazz Band accompanied by the full menu of Creole specialties - it was a rollicking go... ”

Asian Pacific Cafe

   (08/21/2008)
“If you crave authentic sushi, the Asian Pacific Cafe stands out in a town full of fake sushi. Everything is fresh and prepared before your eyes.

August Moon Chinese Restaurant

 1 star(s)  (06/06/2008)
“This is easily the worst Chinese food I've ever eaten. The hot & sour soup was nothing more than egg drop soup with a spoon full of sweet & sour sauce stirred in. I couldn't taste the shrimp in the sweet & sour shrimp. I removed the breading and all that was left was the smallest size of shrimp ava... ”

Bayona

 5 star(s)  (09/05/2000)
“Bayona is the quintessential New Orleans restaurant. Susan Spicer is the talented chef of this French Quarter restaurant. Her food preparation is imagitive,but refined. She uses local ingredients to a great extent and makes magic with them. I think it is the best dining experience in New Orleans and... ”

Big Easy Billiards & Sports Bar

 1 star(s)  (05/11/2012)
“Ordered lunch to go for five. Fried shrimp salad scary...small peices of pre-breaded shrimp way too salty so I tried to peel off the breading but impossible because they were so overcooked. Not as described on menu, lettuce looked fresh but tasted like chemicals. Waste of $10.00. Did not have time... ”
