Went with some co-workers while at a conference in NOLA. Other places were packed but we were able to get a great table here. Service was quick and drinks were good. Great 6 piece band!

We thoroughly enjoyed a great dinner, drinks and especially the Kevin Louis Jazz Band. The restaurant is located in the French Quarter on amain road. The band was lively, people danced and everyone was having a good time.

We had a great meal, reasonably priced and excellent service. This was topped off with a jazz band playing in the background. I would recommend this spot highly.
