Waitress and kitchen were very knowledgeable about multiple food allergies and made a concerted effort to accommodate me. The food was delicious and the flavors were unique and well put together, i.e. not just a plain protein and starch.

Absolutely amazing dinner. They treated my GF daughter beautifully. Our server asked the table up front whether any of us had food allergies, and when my daughter said she was GF, they asked whether soy sauce was ok. As a celiac, my daughter can’t have any of that. They walked her item by item through the menu, marking what was GF and what could be made GF. Between the 3 of us we tried 2 starters (octopus without the sauce and the tuna ham), 3 entrees (jerk chicken, pork belly, and the non-GF cavatelli), 3 cocktails, and 1 dessert (sorbet trio), and every dish was delicious. Charming space, excellent service, will come back every time I’m in NOLA.

Our food was so delicious! This lovely restaurant run by Top Chef alum Nina Compton did not disappoint. The menu changes regularly, so it is best to check with your server on which items are fully gluten free as written and which can be modified to be gluten free. When we dined, two of the five appetizers were gluten free and three of the entrées. Our server was very knowledgeable about food allergies and celiac disease; she made me feel confident that it was safe to dine here.
