The service and food were excellent. Our only complaint would be the location and tiny table. There was a large group in the center of the room and our table was next to it against the wall. We were barely able to squeeze into our chairs and the waitress had a difficult time serving the large group as there was minimal space between them and us. As I said the food and service were fine and we will try again in the future.

My husband and I enjoyed a lovely New Year's dinner at Restaurant L. The food was fresh and delicious, as was the White Cosmo, the service was perfect, and the environment warm and festive.

Lovely small restaurant there was a loud party next to us , and when they left much more intimate and quiet. The service was great up until the end when the waiter seemed to forget us even though we were there at off hour and it wasn't busy. The food was outstanding with a very varied menu at reasonable prices

Totally unexpected little gem in what seemed to be the middle of no where. Granted we were not from the area and it was dark and late (9:30 p.m.) when we found it after a long day at a field hockey tournament at the Superdome Sport center. The staff was very accommodating and kind given we weren’t really dressed for the occasion or the surroundings which were wonderful. The perfect end to a long day!

They were out of many of the wines on the wine list because the owner didn't order more before leaving on vacation. In a situation like that where you're forced to spend more, the restaurant should have offered the wine at a discount.

Seems like a family restaurant. The lack of a Chef is reflected in mediocre food and a poor presentation of the dishes. Salads are the worst, it seems that they buy bags of salad at the supermarket and put them on the plate. There is no creativity or delicacy in the food, they are far from becoming a hierarchy reataurant. Inadequate and cheap wine glasses. Service, ambience and noise level are ok.

Perhaps the chef was not cooking the night we were there. The main course dishes we could always count on to enjoy were just not good. A real diappointment. The service was good so we didn't want to offend the service staff...

We had a 6:15 Saturday reservation which was honored. Really enjoyed the food although a bit expensive. By the time we left at 8 the place was full and very loud. Valet parking a nice touch but really not necessary.

Fresh hot rolls served immediately after ordering. Meals were delicious and seasoned perfectly. Bar is a hopping place too for mature adults. Would recommend this restaurant to friends.

I realize you cannot do anything about the noise level when people are gathering with friends for
a night out, but it got extremely loud to the point I found myself yelling at the person I was dining
with in order for her to hear me.

Shrimp tequila was slightly over cooked and shrimp jumbo, but small for price. Pecan chicken was breaded, thin and sauce cloying. Salad - I don’t remember name but it had lack olives - aaa smoke but just ok.

The food was excellent as usual but unfortunately for us the waitress had on cologne that was so heavy that two people in our party that had asthma had a difficult time whenever she came to the table and we could not seem to find an courteous way to inform her. I would think that her boss would have advised her that some things can be overdone and the scent she was wearing was offensive.

First visit there it was good but not great. My pink lemonade martini was very good and the lobster and shrimp quesadilla was good but the soft shell crab entree, which was a special, was so breaded and fried it tasted like a well done French frie, I was very disappointed with it. Hubby said tilapia entree was good.

Me and my husband frequent this restaurant and was shocked at how terrible it was this past trip. First they ran out of something that is always on the menu as soon as we ordered it then we waited for our food only to find out the waitress never placed my husbands order !!! So we had to eat without him. They packed it to go. After 15 years We won’t be returning !! Maybe management or owners recently
Changed but somehow this place went from a 10 to a 2

For whatever reason they don’t have happy hour anymore. Usually we like to sit and get a drink or two before we eat. Never heard of a place not having any kind of specials. Strange.
