First time at The Warehouse for Saturday Brunch - the food was excellent, I had the seared crabcakes with vegetable medley, hubby had the steak and eggs - both were absolutely delicious, we wanted the chocolate mousse for dessert, first they thought they were out, but our waiter managed to find one for us back in the kitchen - service was excellent, champagne and strawberries a wonderful addition for brunch. I also had a Peach Sangria that was one of my favorite drinks. Definitely coming back.

The atmosphere was upscale and the ambiance was refined; however, if you are looking for New Orleans inspired creole food, this is not it. Seasoning was not robust. They opted to fry the catfish instead of blackening it and rice was not dirty. The crabcakes lacked seasoning as well. The basics are there; however, the restaurant appears hesitant to commit to the cajun genre. Disappointed.

Service was great but the gumbo and veal were heavily salty. Others in the group had the rockfish which tasted great.

My date and I had a wonderful time at Warehouse. We arrived at our reservation time and were seated immediately. Our server was very courteous and completely focused on our enjoyment of the dining experience. The scallops with chips appetizer was exceptional. We fully enjoyed our main courses which were the crab cakes and salmon. We will definitely return.

We are from Louisiana and have missed the southern cuisine desperately. The Warehouse deserves 5 stars all the way around!! The sauces were excellent, the fish was fresh, and everything was prepared perfectly. We will definitely return !

I enjoyed everything about The Warehouse. We were running a few minutes late for our reservations & received a courtesy call to make sure we were keeping our reservations. Once arrived we were seated right away. The service & the food was excellent. We also had a beautiful view of King Street. I can’t wait to go back with friends!!!

Great atmosphere and service was prompt and courteous. The dinner menu offers New Orleans style seafood with several of the fish entrees including crawfish, and meat entrees that are very large portions of beef with few vegetables. I do recommend the Warehouse as the environment is so pleasant, if you like crawfish, shellfish and steaks.

In my open table reservation, I added a comment that we would have one diner using a motorized chair. I was concerned with the need to accommodate storing it out of the way of diners and staff during dinner. The restaurant provided us a table with room for the chair nearby. We then enjoyed excellent food, in a quiet atmosphere where we could hear each other.

We had dinner here early (5:30) on a Sunday night during a holiday weekend. It was pretty quiet when we got there but filled up quickly and was relatively packed by the time we left. The dining room is a cool large first floor of a townhouse/brownstone with a small bar in the middle, and the kitchen seemed to be upstairs. Service was excellent throughout, both quick and attentive, yet perfectly unobtrusive for our quiet date night. The food was great, as well, and I ordered completely off the specials menu, which is unusual for me but worked out very well. Fried alligator appetizer and braised short ribs for me, surf and turf for my wife (the surf is crab cake which is awesomely DMV), and everything was done well and tasted great. The menu had a lot of range, leaning towards Southern/Creole seafood, but there were plenty of other options if that isn't your scene. Based on this experience, I definitely want to go back and try the crawfish etouffee, fried catfish, and pasta jambalaya, as well as to see what other specials might be in store. Honestly, the only changes I might have asked for in a perfect world was to dim the lights and turn up the background music a little bit for ambiance, but I think that hardly counts as a complaint.

We were excited to finally try the place after hearing how good it supposedly is... but we will never return! The oysters on the half shell were mediocre... the crab cake appetizer was heavily fried, lacking in flavor, and tiny... the wedge salad was also lacking a lot of flavor and it needed a better blue cheese dressing, more tomatoes, and it was missing green onions entirely!... the filet I ordered medium rare came out WELL, sent it back and it came out between a medium and a medium-well. And there was a large party right near us full of young twenty-something girls who were so obnoxiously loud and even singing occasionally (really?!?). We decided to skip dessert and instead headed across the street to a favorite of ours, Sonoma Wine Cellars... finally we had a great dessert and wine pairing... so glad we didn't stay at The Warehouse any longer!
