Don't call yourself a Cajun restaurant if you don't know the difference between etouffee and gumbo. I ordered the gumbo but got etouffee. It was just 'ok', nothing to write home about and I wanted gumbo. This is a really cute and clean restaurant but be ready for high prices. My husband ordered shrimp and they were shrimp, at least!

The food and service was amazing. Pricey but worth the cost. The waiter made great suggestions. We all had seafood and everyone was happy with what they got.

We visited while in a recent trip to WP. A thumbs up from the wife and a thumbs down from me. We both had the seafood bouillabaisse. She loved it I found it rather bland. What I did not expect is the gumbo I ordered to taste and look the same as the sauce/soup of bouillabaisse. From my perspective they... More

We took our 3 teenage boys to dinner here and it was great food, but the boys got back to the condo and were hungry. I wish my husband and I would have just gone here on a date and enjoyed a glass of wine and a nice meal...without the kids.

My husband and I were the first dinner guests on Sunday night. I ordered the salmon special and my husband had a burger. The downfall was the wait, 40 minutes until the food arrived. The upside, when our meals arrived they were well prepared, hot, and very tasty. Salmon was medium and tasted very fresh. Veggies were also very fresh... More

There isn't a lot for vegetarians; they did have the token vegi entree - harvest pumpkin ravioli. It was very good but at $21 the most I've paid for a vegi plate in a long time. The desserts were yummy and the service in the restaurant and from the bar very comfy, professional, and friendly. We were a group of... More

Good food and good service. We had a party of 14 and our waitress never missed a step. I had the salmon and it was quite tasty. The bananas foster was good (but in my opinion would be even better with a biscuit/shortbread of some sort). It was simply bananas and sauce. Still good, but could be improved upon. The... More

My mash potatoes were cold, and the grilled veggie flavor I didn't care for..the shrimp were jumbo and serving size generous....the batter was not what I'm use to but we are from East Texas and eat Cajun regularly. The ambience was just okay for me. Service was fair from our waitress.

Group meal. Good food. Quiet at lunch. Slightly more expensive than typical lunch fare, but still a good value.
