    Fantastic experience, after a great dinner the building manager gave us a private tour of the old theatre which hosts the House of Blues special events. Incredible history in this place and truly a hidden gem of the French quarter. Go and check it out!

    We went for dinner on the early side (6:30) on a Thursday night, but we were only 1 of 3 tables in the entire place so it was very quiet and really no atmosphere. However, the decor vibe was very cool, the entrance was unique and I could see the potential for great energy on a more crowded evening. Food was ok. We had the Arancini, Beef Tartare and the Brussels. Would go again in hopes of getting the real atmosphere experience.

    When we arrived there was not enough chairs for our reservation number. The food and drinks took over an hour. Lots of menu items they were out of or had limited amounts of. Not great for large groups. Waitress Jalyn was awesome, the only reason we stayed.

    0 out of 10!! DO NOT RECOMMEND!! This IS NOT IT! Nothing More Then A Tourist Trap. Online it looks warm and inviting… In actuality it’s Dark Dismal and Basic. The Lounge and Dining Room are only separated by a Bar…with the live music it’s makes it louder then it should be. Table of Lushes on one side and loud Blaring Music on the other. The “FOOD”! OMG…No! Just No! A Caesar Salad is a Staple at any restaurant, How you make it and present it determines the level of quality for restaurant… IT TASTED LIKE SALAD OUT OF A BAG! The Beef TarTare… Poor Quality of Meat and there’s no way that internal temp was correct DISGUSTING! The Carbonara?! Had a Whole Can Of Peas in it!! CANNED PEAS!! LACK OF CUSTOMER SERVICE! The wait staff is very friendly and attentive. When walk in the door he greets you with a smile very friendly and puts you at ease. The servers do an excellent job HOWEVER IT ALL FALLS APART…. The Chef Came Out Touched Each table EXCEPT OUR TABLE THE MANAGER comes out and She DOES THE EACT SAME THING WHILE GLARING AT US THE WHOLE TIME!! WALKED PAST OUT TABLE SEVERAL TIMES NOT ONCE ACKNOWLEDGING OUR PRESENCE It Takes forever to get a dish! It’s a 30Min Gap between each serving!! BY THE TIME YOU GET ANYTHING YOU’RE FED UP AND JUST WANT TO LEAVE!! 3 HOURS OF POOR QUALITY FOOD SERVED IN A REFURBISHED DARK DINGY GARAGE FILLED WITH GRANDMAS FRIENDS AND HER FURNITURE FOR THE LATE 1960s!!

    What a wonderful experience! We had gotten our reservation time wrong and everyone was so quick to help us. They gave us free champagne to sit in the lounge and wait to see if they could feee up a table, then seated us promptly. James the chef, Sam the host, and everyone were amazing from start to finish. The food was outstanding (the pork chop was one of the best things I ever ate) and the drinks were delicious. We wound up sitting with Sam and the manager for a while after we had finish and they gave us recommendations for things to do and go while visiting. Overall an amazing experience and would 1000% recommend.

    The atmosphere was amazing. It looked great for sure. Their elevator is broken though so you had to go through some weird back alley looking thing and end up in the kitchen. They didn't have many things on the menu, and I don't think they had steak because I basically wasn't allowed to order

    I am so disappointed with this restaurant. I made sure that I read all the reviews on the food and drinks. Dress code etc.... First things first.....There was no one to greet us when we walked in. Turns out that the band that was playing that night, was on there way back upstairs to the restaurant. So they said to follow them, the elevator was out of service. So they said to catch a ride with them. (Service elevator) once we made it upstairs they greeted us and showed us to the table. The place is beautiful and the gentlemen was so nice and professional. Where things went south (bad) was our server. She was not dressed appropriate for that restaurant. Her stomach was exposed, (there is a place and time for that). Not when your going to pay almost $100 for a steak. She took forever to get our drinks. The 1st round came quick not the 2nd round. Then she kept coming over talking to us about restaurants and food, where to eat. This was my wedding anniversary dinner with my husband. And our cousins birthday celebration. So 4 of us. All dressed up. nice restaurant. We flew in from Chicago for this. We could have picked any restaurant but we didn't. We picked the Foundation Room. Then she had the nerve's to sit next to me as if she was having dinner with us. chatting for over 20 minutes. so much for romance, hell! she would not go away. So no intimate setting for us.

    We were so impressed with the chef and the new menu- Foie gras and charcuterie were yummy! Cocktails awesome. Great wine list. Got pasta and the chicken main courses - far surpassed our expectations. Prices very reasonable ~ ambiance meets the wow factor - in the midst of the Foundation Room! On the top of my list!
