My friends & I shared a fantastic meal here. We were greeted warmly & just loved our waiter, Leon, who guided us through the menu. The corn bread was hot out of the oven and we all decided on having the fried chicken with sides...More

This old fashioned soul food restaurant really knows how to fry up chicken and seafood. The red beans and rice and candied sweet potatoes were so good. I wasn't crazy about the dry corn bread and lukewarm mac and cheese but the stellar fried dishes...More

We stopped here because of its simple local diner-type appearance. While not starving, we decided to split a 'Taste of Soul' platter. We were assured that the serving would satisfy. We received the Gumbo starter, and the waitress also dropped off a Etouffee (not part...More

The food here is so good you will want to go back the next day. The catfish is yummy and the seafood platter is enough for the whole family. We always plan a dinner here when we travel to NO

We went to this restaurant twice while in New Orleans. The food was excellent. The service was even better. Comparing the Praline Connection to other restaurants in the area this restaurant feels down right elegant. It is quiet and the staff is very professional and...More

Our large group had a pre paid meal at this out of the way, strange and seemingly scary neighborhood. But what a wonderful surprise when we entered the restaurant. It was large enough to accommodate us, it was neat and clean, the employees were friendly,...More

It was overpriced or priced to the area- touristy Frenchmen street but portions were WACK. Gumbo & oysters were just ok. They get a 3/5 because they had thee best sweet potatoes (despite the fact that it came in a condiment size "bowl") and the...More
