This was our second trip here. It was great the first time in 2017, and it was great tonight! We made 7:15 pm reservations for two. Upon arriving, we observed that all staff were correctly masked and the overhead fans were running. The decor is...exposed brick walls, white linen tablecloths, dark wood, open-beam ceilings. Tables are nicely spaced. Seating for 40, mostly four tops, and a bar. Nice music played, not too loudly, from a playlist of jazz and popular classics from the 40s to the 70s. Our server was Joanie. She put us at ease about taking off our masks telling us she was fully vaccinated. I am fully vaccinated and my son is halfway to his second shot. Besides us, there were only two people at the bar. It felt very safe while also knowing Nola‘s Covid-19 positivity rate is less than 1%! After our drink orders, Joanie brought out the house Sugar cane glazed corn bread. It was delicious, sweet, and fluffy. For an appetizer we had the Mississippi Style Barbecue Pork Belly — it took about 15-20 minutes to come to the table. But it was worth it! I recommend eating the corn bread with the greens that are sweet, tangy, and have a little heat. The okra is fried perfectly and a fantastic treat with the dish. It adds a crunchy texture to the dish. The pork belly is meaty, tender and rich! The BBQ sauce was very good and supplied a crunchy glaze. And the little bites of watermelon rind were sublime. This appetizer is super rich, so definitely share or treat as an entree. For an entree, my son had the Blackened Scallops — they come with crawfish & tasso maque choux, fingering potatoes, fried fennel pickles, sweet chili saffron glaze. They were perfectly blackened! The only complaint is we were expecting six scallops for $36, not three! Well, maybe not six... but at least four. They were fresh and plump. But as I told Joanie after the first bite, I didn’t now whether to sing, dance, or cry! That is how incredible all the ingredients were in that first bite. As an entree, I chose the appetizer of Fried Oysters with Angel Hair pasta. It was just delicious! Such depth of flavors, and everything perfectly cooked and beautifully plated. It was the perfect portion size! After eating 2/3 of the pork belly appetizer, I only ate half of this.... to leave room for dessert! Speaking of which, I had the caramelized white chocolate bread pudding with macerated strawberries, chocolate sauce, and powdered sugar. Crunchy on the outside and gooey in the inside. I loved it! The couple of pieces of candied pecans on the plate were like a whimsical bite of pralines and were delightful! By the time our entrees came, there were three tables filled and three people at the bar. 16 people in all. Nicely spaced. The only negative was the wait between courses. It was close to 20 minutes. They might have been short staffed, however. No biggie. We weren’t in a hurry. The chef was amazing. Joanie was fantastic. Whenever we come to Nola, we won’t fail to stop at Restaurant Rebirth!More

If I could only eat at one New Orleans restaurant for the rest of my life, this would be it. Every bite is better than the next. Be sure to start with the pork belly. Although beware, you won’t want to eat it anywhere else...again. This time we had the scallops and pork chop for dinner. The scallops are so great and flavorful. And then the pork chop is huge. And so good. And make sure to eat dessert. This time we had the coffee creme brûlée. But; the white chocolate bread pudding is also out of this world.More

What a fantastic restaurant! The atmosphere is inviting and interesting with brick walls and tall ceilings. The cuisine is deliciously and classically southern. The fried oysters were inspirational. Ditto on the pork belly. Really, every dish we had was sublime. No doubt there is some...serious aptitude in the kitchen here. One of the owners stopped by a few times to make sure we were loving our dinner. This is some blow away good Creole/southern groceries. If you’re here on vacation, you must come here to enjoy local cuisine.More

My husband and i had an amazing dinner the other night starting with an amuse bouche of a shrimp boullet over a mirliton slaw, then split oysters over pasta with a wonderful mushroom sauce (which my non-mushroom eating husband loved). He had the gumbo which...rivaled my own and I had the farmhouse salad. My husband had the filet (cooked perfectly) and green beans which he loved and i had the red grouper over veggies and gnocchi. The fish was perfectly cooked and delish. We had gone thinking they had a coolinary menu but did not. The meal was a bit pricy probably because of the alcohol but the wine list was very nice and worth it. Also got the cafe au lait creme brulee which was topped with litte beignets and chocolate covered coffee beans (I think) (OMG it was good).More

Not bad, but not up to NOLA extraordinary cuisine. Found the foods lacking in New Orleans rich, savory flavors, found everything to be particularly bland, especially the eggplant shrimp appetizer. There are so many incredible places to eat in NOLA, I’m really surprised that this...one is rated so highly, it’s definitely not in my opinion.More

I’ll start by saying our waiter was outstanding. He knew the menu in and out and did everything he could to make us happy. I’m sorry I forgot his name. The pork belly was the best pork belly I’ve ever had. Incredible. I wish I...had just gotten more pork belly and skipped the pork chop. The pork chop is massive, however, mine was overcooked. An overcooked pork chop in a restaurant like this is disappointing. They did have Uncle Nearest bourbon on the menu and that was great. I would rate the look of the interior of the restaurant as average at best.More

This was our second visit to Rebirth and a great success again. The chef cooks classic from the cajun cuisine which make you feel like you just got invited to an old grand ma cajun family table. His gumbo is the best we had after...trying the dish in every single top restaurant in NO. I almost ordered another one for dessert as I already had a craving for it by the end of the meal ... Make sure to come hungry as portions are VERY generous. Service is super nice and they have a nice selection of wines and cocktails... It might not have palace in its name but this place leaves many other famous restaurant in the dust... Make sure to book ahead: it's a small place and they are very busyMore

We stopped by for lunch before the LSU-Clemson Championship game. Started off with the country gumbo and seafood chowder. Both were excellent. One of the best gumbos - says a lifetime resident. We had the shrimp and eggplant, and the boudin and beignets appetizer. Once...again both excellent. Will be back for sure.More

Most restaurants accommodate gluten free, the other 2 I don't know why they couldn't, go online and check out their menu. I am gluten and soy free and had no problem there. Go! You will love it.

It’s an amazing restaurant with very personalized service. I suggest calling and discussing the allergy when you make your reservation.

We walked and it was just about 1 mile. Would be about a 10 min drive depending on traffic. I believe the entries were about $27+ but don’t quote me on that. Yelp might give you the price range,
