    Our cocktails and all three courses of food were outstanding. The vibe at the bar is great. The wine list is perfectly adequate. The ambience is fun; think Parisian seafood brasserie crossbred with upscale sports bar. There are TVs everywhere. The noise level is on the high end of exuberant, but not worse than that. Our only less than glowing critique is that the service sometimes bogged down, so that a second beverage took what felt like forever to arrive and the food (on an admittedly very busy Saturday night) was slow to come out of the kitchen. We loved sitting on the enclosed terrace along St. Charles Avenue, we also love sitting at the oyster bar. We shall most definitely return again and again, each time with more patience. The food and buzz is worth any down-side experience.

    My boyfriend visited for the holiday & I chose this spot for our dinner before he flew back home. He's a well traveled military guy & enjoys all cuisines. I keep it pretty simple (lol). He absolutely LOVES all things seafood, but shrimp or catfish being his favorite. He ordered the flounder for his entrée & declares it's the best he's ever tasted ANYWHERE! I'd agree it was really good. I ordered the Tchop chicken, so tender & flavorful! We both had frozen French 75's.........Date Night was a success!

    We were welcomed with a hearty greeting. We were seated in the covered patio which we appreciated because it was not crowded. Our server was timely and was informative regarding recommendations. We ordered the crawfish beignets which were absolutely delicious!! I ordered the mushroom and goat omelette with crabmeat and my wife ordered the chicken and waffles. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience!! Suggestion is to arrive early as this restaurant gets busy quickly

    Menu on their website doesn't match the menu at the restaurant. The food service was slow. Canceled our oyster order due to it taki.g so long. My chicken arrived wirh no sides on the plate. Asked about it and waiter shrugged and walked away. He came back with potatoes and just set them on our table and walked off. Not an I'm sorry, not a word. We asked for the check and left.

    We have always loved superior but the portions have shrunk, the prices have gone up, and the quality has gone down. The profiteroles are still fabulous but we waited forty-five minutes after ordering dessert. Also, it turned out my daughter could join us after all, but they wouldn’t let us add a chair. And we had to wait a long time to hear about that, too, from our waiter. I appreciate that the restaurant gets super crowded and busy, but there are lots of good restaurants in New Orleans to choose from

    The food and drinks were very good. The service was very slow and indifferent. 4 of the 5 entrées arrived together. Since the server never came back to check once the food was brought, he had no idea we were missing anything. Once he found out, he said it was not his fault, but the kitchen.

    We come to Nola often to visit our daughter and no visit is complete without an evening at superior seafood . Cone for the happy hour oyster special ($1) and end up staying for dinner all the while the cocktails flow freely from the very attentive service . It does have a tendency to get crowded during peaks so come early or make sure you have a table reserved.

    At Happy Hour designated bottles of wine as well as drinks are half price. Order early for dinner. We highly recommend the delicious crawfish cornbread topped with etouffe. Can serve two as appetizer. All dishes are good and service is exceptional. Kayla was excellent! Save room for dessert such as Creme Brulee or Bread Pudding. We had a delightful evening!

    Everything was scrumptious! Started with Crawfish Mac n' Cheese, Escargot de Bourgogne, Burrata & Tomato Bruschetta, and Seafood stuffed Mushrooms. Subbed our salads with Crawfish & Crab Bisque and Gumbo. Main entrées included the Beet Salad, Blackened Catfish Napoleon, Tchoupitoulas Chicken, and Shrimp & Mushroom Risotto. This place didn't disappoint and thankful to my Uber driver for the recommendation. Service was impeccable. Thank you John B
