4 of 5 stars: minor flaws

The downstairs is sleek, new and ultra-modern. The upstairs is quaint, old-fashioned and is in need of some minor repairs.

Can’t beat the food. Love the jazz brunch.

I’ve seen some complain this is pricey: I disagree. You want pricey? Try Restaurant R’evolution or August!

About $40 per person before gratuity (jazz brunch ordering a la carte).

(see explanation of ratings below)

About my ratings:

Only fine dining establishments can garner five stars. Until menuism realizes that a fast food joint cannot possibly be ranked equally with a $100 per person place, I need to draw the line somewhere. If we were only talking about the quality and presentation of the food, it would be a different story. But, as we know, menuism’s rankings take into account the entire dining experience.

Therefore, I divide restaurants into three categories (and I wish menuism would do the same):

1) fast food (no table service)

2) casual dining (table service)

3) fine dining (linen napkins, no plastic cups, no TV’s in dining room, typically more expensive than casual dining)

Fine dining can earn a max of five stars. Casual dining can earn a max of four stars. Fast food can earn a max of three stars.

Service and food is exceptional!

This is best place in the city to go for a special occasion. I had my bday here and my mother could not make it and they had a card and champagne from my mother waiting at the table with balloons. The service is wonderful and the food is superb!

This is one of my favorite restaurants and I've never had a bad experience there. The food is spectacular and it truly gives you a taste of what New Orleans cuisine is all about.
