It was as expected. We are on vacation. We knew it would be expensive. The food, service and ambiance was superb as we thought it would be. It was a very enjoyable experience.

Simply fantastic- one of the best meals I’ve had in New Orleans (and I come for business every month). The wine list was exceptional - talk to Emily, the Sommelier or Jake, the Asst. Sommelier for great recommendations. I had a Chassagne Montrachet that perfectly complimented the seafood ordered. I had mixed East and West coast oysters, Beausoleil and Kumamoto. Beausoleil rulez. Both Incredible. Fried crab appetizer. Incredible. Gulf Shrimp and cauliflower rice. Incredible- and amazing how they transformed the cauliflower. Views are best in New Orleans looking on Mississippi and a damn good bar to boot for pre-game or a nightcap. Expensive but worth every penny,

CC was our server, and she was wonderful. My wife and I have wanted to come here for years and this was our first opportunity. It did not disappoint. The fried chicken hummus may have been our favorite dish – which was recommended by our server. I would never have thought of that combination and it is spectacular. We also had the lamb which was some incredible. The only downside whatsoever is that the restaurant is a little bit noisy. (Also be prepared that the air conditioning works VERY well, so even though it was hot outside, it was icy inside). But that did not interfere with us having a wonderful evening.

Great food prepared in fresh and creative ways. Classic southern meats that please the 21st century palate. So damn good! Nice, relaxed ambiance and great, attentive service. You need to give Toups a try.

Everything was good. Thanks not criticism is the person who took us to our table did not speak and if she did her voice was so low you couldn’t hear her. She never made eye contact. Didn’t seem friendly or welcoming.
