We left disappointed. There's a window to order food, we found the server unhelpful and disinterested. When the food came, the portions were small and the quality average. They had live music later in the night with a $10 cover charge.

New Orleans musical landmark on upper Canal Street. Heard John Clarey perform. The music is the thing. The cover for superior talent is expected and gladly handed over. Great New Orleans experience for two first time visitors
