    Server took a long time to get to table. Then our drinks came 36 minutes after we ordered them. When they got to the table, they were not good. I got the ginger julep and it was a chore to finish. My wife did not finish her drink. For appetizers we got the crab bisque and the gratin oysters. The crab bisque was very good. The gratin oysters were…different. A bland flavor and not cooked very much at all, it was a very different oyster experience than what I expected (fully cook charbroiled). We each ate 2 oysters but did not want to eat the other two. I got the blackened pompano for my entree, and it was ok. Pretty bland. My wife got the roasted cauliflower pasta, and it was alright. The only reason this review is a 4 and not a 3 (and I almost made it a 5) was because of the fried green tomatoes on top a bed of corn salsa. Oh my god was that great. It hit every flavor note perfectly and I want to eat it again the next day and all days after. Kudos to whomever cooked that. That said, the fried green tomatoes and crab bisque are the only things I would recommend.

    Slow service but that very well may be the “Big Easy” way. Ordered the 3 course meal for restaurant week but they ran out of the 3rd course. No discount applied. Food was good but wasn’t great.

    The presentation of the shrimp and grits lunch portion that my colleague ordered was amazing. I had the buffalo shrimp CBD salad with green goddess and ranch dressing which was delicious as always. The restaurant wasn’t busy which is unusual. We had attentive servers and give our experience five stars!!!

    I was excited for a restaurant with NO flavors but 1) the restaurant (or at least where I was sitting) smelled like smoke and 2) the dish recommended as a house speciality (fish tacos) was over-seasoned; the fish was overly salted and the slaw was so acidic to be inedible. I wish I had picked a different restaurant.

    Shrimp and grits and, for dessert, creme brulee were okay but not especially flavorful. Maybe other things on the menu are better. The patio had the aroma of the kitchen; might not be as distinct in cooler weather.

    Wonderful food and outstanding service. We read the menu online and had a good idea of both the menu options and what we wanted to order. The wine list in person will likely not match what is online, so be prepared to make substitutions to your wine plans. Overall, a great dining experience.

    Continuing my birthday activities, we had dinner reservations for Trenasse. I’m not a fan of crawfish but gave the crawfish pie a try. It was delicious. For entree, I had stinkys stew. The broth was tasty and had chunks of seafood in it.

    My wife and I enjoyed Sunday Brunch at Trenasse today, and it was delicious. We really enjoyed our two selections: shrimp and grits, and the Triple Benny (eggs Benedict three ways). Most scrumptious. The manager, Tiffany, was gracious in greeting and seating us, and filled us in on a little background information on the place. I would most definitely recommend eating here and we look forward to coming back again to continue our culinary exploration of Trenasse’s menu.

    Ate here 2x since being at the intercontinental New Orleans. I am vegetarian and I had the cauliflower steak which came with Brie and was delicious! Also the vegetarian fried green tomatoes were amazing and the house salad with lemon vinaigrette was sooo good. I can’t speak to the meat entrees, but most of my coworkers liked their food! They said grits were not the best but that’s the only negative I heard. I would recommend. Especially if you’re staying at the hotel.

    The food was scrumptious, food presentation was on point. From the group that I was dining with; we ordered the steak and that steak soooo tender to be well done and so amazingly flavorful. Another person ordered Stinky’s Stew which basically is seafood in a tomato Basil broth although there wasn’t any crab legs the shrimp, mussels and clams were good. Trenasse sampler which has the crawfish pie was perfect! And last but not least the Brie Burger; yes a simple dish, but the burger prepared just right. Service was okay; our waitress was working her tables and I think she might’ve been a little overwhelmed because at some point we didn’t see her for a good 20 minutes. Overall the finishing touch of the meals was outstanding, the food was yummy and service was acceptable for the time and crowd.

    We were seated promptly at our time of reservation. The space is pleasant but non distinct. However, shortly after sitting we were pestered by fruit flies which got worse once the meals were served. Service was so lack luster that it was clear the waiter did not want to be there and did not care that the appetizer was sent back after two bites. Now the food, first, the chef must have an obsession with salt. A delicate fish like pampano (a special that night) was buried under a salty layer of potatoes, sauce which I had to clear off so that I can eat it. The bienville, a house specialty baked oyster almost broke my tooth with whatever it had in it and was a grease feast with salt to go with it. Lastly, the beignets were doughy, not cooked properly and the coffee it was served with was completely cold. The waiter could not even tell me the name of the prime white wine, the vintage just saying it was from California. What a disaster!

    Arrived on time for reservation hubby ordered the Taste of Trenasse & I ordered the bisque and CBD salad. While waiting on our food to arrive we ordered drinks - frozen hurricane & lemon drop martini. Great choices as they were really good. Then the food arrived and boy we were SURPRISED. The food tasted great - the right spice combination that was pleasing to the palate. Dessert choice was bread pudding and they got it right. Chef Mike made an appearance at the end of the meal & visited every patron in the restaurant. Overall Trenasse was a great dining experience.
