The food was not good at all. The host who sat us down was so kind and sweet; she made the dining experience nice. We keep seeing bugs on the wall next to our food. The food was not good. Honestly, was turned off by the bugs.
Before event at Orpheum theater. Perfect spot. Delicious food. Attentive service.
I was ambitious and ordered catfish, andouille sausage, corn, and crab hushpuppies. Everything was tasty although the hushpuppies were fried hard - tough exterior and somewhat doughy interior.
Great! Except the restaurant was closed an
Amazing food. Great cocktails. We loved everything we tried. Service was slow and it was super cold when we went, buy loved the food.
A wonderful experience. Drinks and shared plates were all well prepared and very tasty, although we all ate too much.
One diner in our party had some food allergy questions and when our waitress wasn't 100% sure on some of the ingredients she brought in a manager who took great care of us and returned multiple times to ensure we were well taken care of. Very enjoyable evening.
Cornbread and Poutine were faaantastic - and the Tiki drink for 2 was served in a big copper piineapple adding to the festive feel. Fun.
Date night dinner here before a show at the Ace Hotel Theater- perfect meal (gumbo), great drinks, close location, just a great choice all around.
Amazing food and drinks. Servers were nice. Nice environment. Great for a date.
Amazing & eclectic food!
Enjoyed dinner here before a show at the Orpheum. Early enough to take advantage of happy hour drinks and appetizers. Everything we tried was wonderful. Will be back to explore the menu further.
We stumble upon this place while in LA. Quite the neighborhood find. They had an extensive happy hour special/menu. We tried the Carolina bbq cubano, fried Mississippi catfish, baked mac and cheese, braised collards and beignets. While I would have preferred less meat in the greens, overall the food had a great taste and was well seasoned. The house wine (Wycliff brut, I believe) paired well with our meal selection. Our server Chuey was very attentive and provided superb customer service. I would highly recommend for every day dining or special occasions.
Not a great place. Save your money, and fly to New Orleans. ;)
Overpriced, extremely small portions, bland cocktails and food.
Ran out of oysters before we arrived. Terrible service.
Downstairs stunk and the place was sticky. Thank god we only got desserts, which we did not even need. Glad we ate a huge meal before because the smell was a total turnoff.
Cool, hip vibe but the place is small and loud. Food was good but pricey, drinks were okay but the service was impeccable! Will be back but will try to hit happy hour and maybe grab a table outside on the patio.
Just have to differentiate the upstairs "Propper" from the downstairs "Preux" menus. "Proper" has the more diverse menu.
Great food and great atmosphere. Perfect for a date night.
Definitely recommend - such a find in the middle of downtown. Great for pre-concert, or post concert...excellent bar and amazing space!
Other than the oddity of needing to go upstairs to get a table downstairs, the atmosphere was nicely casual, the service timely and the food quality excellent. Sitting near the door does tend to punctuate the evening with the period boom of the shutting door, but that's easily overlooked thanks to the quality of the meal.
Perfect for anniversaries! The best customer service I’ve ever gotten.
Food is very hit or miss. Some dishes are delicious, some not so much. Overpriced for what you get—for these prices I’d rather go to Bavel or Majordomo.
Food was good, however the menu did not accurately reflect the menu posted on Open Table. There were not as many options unfortunately.
I ordered the hush puppies, which tasted pretty good but, on the menu, was listed as a $22 entree. When it came out, it was served as a small appetizer and I felt ripped off. I had ordered this as my only course thinking it would be enough to serve one person. I’m not sure why the waiter, who was very friendly, didn’t point out that what I had ordered was small and more like an appetizer. If I had known, I would not have ordered 4 small balls for $22.
Another thing that wasn’t so nice was the seating. The only option for chairs are bar stools crammed up against the walls. This was okay since we weren’t there long, but I could imagine it being very uncomfortable for older guests or small kids.
Overall the experience was nice, but not somewhere I would return to due to what felt like overpriced food and the fact that downtown parking is minimum $15 on top of what we paid for the food.
Great meal as always. Only problem was deciding what to order from the incredible menu
I always have a good experience when I come! The food is AMAZING, the opens definitely set the vibe, and service was fast.
Good environment. Quite enjoyable.
Sunday family brunch.
The skillet corn bread is fantastic!
We ordered a couple of the Bloody Mary versions and they were really good.
The shrimp and grits were okay , the grits were coarse ground- would have been better if creamier. Flavor was delicious.
The crawfish roil was good too and on the proper grilled bun!
One of us ordered the egg and sausage dish- it was delivered to our table long after the other dishes and hubby was not impressed. Eggs were over cooked and the sausages were dry. Hoping that was unusual.
Overall is was a good experience, would like to try the dinners.
Flavors that we have not found in any other restaurant. Bravo.
This was a cool place. Good crowd. Food was good with interesting textures and tastes. I didn’t realize it was a share plate experience but the portions were very generous. I tried a really good drink that was a gin pineapple mule type thing I loved! We skipped dessert but I wish we hadn’t. The beignets looked amazing!
Too many items on the menu to try. We'll have to go back and try more. Didn't quite understand the crush in the lower lobby/bar; upstairs there were many empty tables. We had reserved a table for two but decided to eat and drink at the bar. The wife ordered an Aperol spritz and reported it was light on Aperol; I can confirm it was also light on prosecco because I watched it being made. I had an old fashioned, and it was well built but, like most old fashioneds, mostly ice cube. The moules were good and nicely seasoned; crab hush puppies excellent; squash blossom chile relleno very tasty; and the house andouille sausage more like thuringer than andouille but still good.
The food is orgasmic, I was very pleased. Shared among my party were the chicken and waffles, shakshuka, French toast and shrimp and grits, all just amazing. Will definitely make a return trip.
I was too hung and busy enjoying my food to take photos, I wish I did, yet another reason to return.
My only complaint is that the bottomless mimosas are only served downstairs 🙁
Staff Awesome, attentive, very nice and helpful !! Food excellent. I Would definitely return.
Everything was perfectly seasoned, creative and delicious! My new favorite restaurant! Our group really enjoyed dinner.
Excellent as usual. This is my fourth or fifth time eating here, and it was amazing and expected. My wife and I love this place, and we let everyone know about it if they are looking for a great place to eat in DTLA. Great food excellent service and a party like atmosphere keeps it lively! Come for the food, and leave feeling full and happy.
I made a reservation for my sister's bachelorette dinner and we were able to be seated in the outdoor patio. The service was amazing and they showed my sister a great time. It was my third time at the restaurant and definitely not my last. Drinks and bar food options were great. Thank you!
The food just wasn't good. Service was nice. A couple items were burnt.
Amazing food and love the ambience
Great food! Great service!
Fun experience but very limited menu on a Saturday. The fried chicken sandwich was very good but small for the price. I wish they had offered fried chicken on Saturday.
It was good
