    We have visited T's a number of times. The venue is great; perched on the picturesque river of the same name. The pear salad is special and easy to share. For a sweet tooth try the chocolate mousse cheesecake, which can be shared among 2 to 4 persons. In between is up to your interests. The burger is gourmet-class. The tuna salad is delicious but not at all generous for the price. The admin fee is a slap in the face that will discourage future visits for us.

This visit I had the Sea Bass, my husband the Ribeye and my brother the lasagna. All excellent. You cannot go wrong. This is officially my favorite restaurant in the S Louisiana area.

    First time here was great----second time not so much. Server took about ten minutes to bring us wine and cocktail list ---seems to me it should've been on table to begin with or given to us when we were seated. Waitress's helper was fantastic, though and he was very attentive. I was told after the fact by a person who saw the bill that we were charged a $13.00 administrative fee (we paid cash on a $481 bill!!) Seems a bit shady. Friend who was served at the bar for a drink before meeting us said service was slow and took a bit to get her bill before she could join us at bar. We were a group of women, I hate being the person who says that we get sub standard service, but this did appear to be the case.

    We absolutely love this restaurant! We go a couple of times a month because it’s beautiful, the staff is trained so well and the food is great. But last night , as other nights, we were turned off by the music choose. This has a huge impact on the overall dining experience. We have been told that the chef prefers the aggravating blues music. Well we do not and it does not fit the the restaurants look and feel. At least the volume was lower last night! Who pays the checks at the end of the night. I don’t think it’s the chef.

    Curtis and Patrick were our waiters. Both were knowledgeable and attentive. Food was delicious. Chef's Cuban beef stew taste was yummy. I'm SO glad carpaccio is back on the menu. The fried oysters were a nice addition. My husband's yellow fin tuna was cooked rare to perfection. We had a lovely evening.
