Rare Form is now at this location. Had Easter brunch at Mojitos in 2014. The service was beyond terrible and the food average. Luckily the drinks were strong.

$18 for a beer and a Mojito at 3:30 in the afternoon was a bit pricy for the old man - we'll pass next time. They have music most nights but with all the competition on Frenchman there never seemed to be a crowd.

Basically my first port of call that night in New Orleans. I was attracted by the excellent three piece blues/rock band they had playing. Good staff and the drinks were reasonably priced.

Just walking on Esplanade one evening and the lights from a distance (along with the strains of the band) caught our attention. Not really hungry but the gentleman at the gate "twisted" our arm to try his oysters............ Well a dozen later and a few drinks, was really an enjoyable experience. Will definitely go back.

If you like it spicy this is the place. Jerked food galore. Taco Tuesday, $2 tacos are great deal. The brisket was the best.

loved this location. The performers sounded great and had a fun interaction with the audience. The outdoor seating is wonderful, one wall is shrub covered so you don't feel like you are surrounded by buildings (and you are) Smoking is allowed outside so that was really awful - couldn't seem to get away from the smokers.

As per another review about Frenchmen street, we couldn't find a place to have dinner listening music while being with teenagers under 18. We were close to give up and walk back to more central NO, when we saw the Mojito Bar & Grill. The place was not full at 8pm and the musician just had a break, but we... More

The location of this restaurant seems tucked away and my wife and I stumbled across it while looking for a different restaurant. I ordered pork ribs and my wife a shrimp type meal. Both were good. My wife became somewhat dismayed when ordering a glass of wine. The waitress, twice, had to come back and tell her the restaurant was... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Faubourg Marigny & Bywater
Nestled between the French Quarter and the Ninth Ward, the Faubourg Marigny & Bywater environs are largely residential. Of course, folks around here love to go out and have a good time as much as they do anywhere in NOLA. And if out-of-towners want to join in the festivities, well then so much the better! Home to some of the most revered live music venues in New Orleans, an eclectic gaggle of gourmand dining destinations, and a come-as-you-are vibe that’s as infectious as it is alluring, this is real deal New Orleans oozing with southern hospitality and the promise of a most epic night out. For endless opportunities to boogie, to admire row upon row of lovingly restored homes, and to escape the fray of the more touristic parts of town (but still live it up in grand style) head to Faubourg Marigny & Bywater.
