This cute little place was perfect for a spontaneous night wandering around town after a conference. Kept it simple with the jambalaya, which they said is naturally GF without modification. Even on a Friday night, it had a chill vibe and we were fortunate to be seated in the lovely back courtyard- quite a nice surprise!

Multiple gluten free options and it was amazing. Don’t let the website fool you they have multiple options on the menu that are gluten free. We had the Acadia Crawfish and Grits and we licked the bowl clean. This is a must try!

The menu has gluten free items indicated, however if you have celiac disease like me, I would definitely recommend double checking with the server as some of the other reviews mention. After telling the server I had celiac disease she pointed out a few items that are marked gf but would not be safe for me, some of which I could not order at all and some of which she said the chef could make separate and ensure zero cross-contamination. I still had a good amount to choose from after that and was happy she was so knowledgeable. The food was also very delicious, I had the crawfish and grits. Overall, this was very enjoyable!

Menu is VERY incorrect, and many items marked GF are not…however, our awesome waitress knew better, and before even taking a drink order asked us about our allergies. When we told her Celiac, she could tell us what was really GF and what wasn’t. Only a few items were truly GF, but were good. Atmosphere is quaint and peaceful, and service is fantastic. Just make sure to double check everything.

Gluten free items are clearly listed. They are gluten free as prepared. I’m gluten sensitive so not sure if it’s safe for celiac. They have qui a few GF items on the menu. The fried crawfish tails and pickles item was excellent with a mild remoulade sauce. The jambalaya was so delicious, I went another night to have it again. It’s a pretty spot with friendly service and reasonable prices for the French Quarter and the quality and quantity of the food. Would definitely go again.

The cocktails were fabulous! My family enjoyed their food, however, I did not (the Celiac in the bunch). They claim much of the menu is gluten free, but it’s not for someone with Celiac Disease. They use the same oil for everything they deep fry.

I rarely eat somewhere without having read some reviews about the place beforehand but we happened to walk by and saw the menu posted out front with almost everything listed as GF. I spoke to the host at the front door who was a total crack up and he said they were very well versed with “people like me” and they would absolutely take care of me. They did!!! The waitress was SUPER helpful and double checked with the chef about the sausage in the crawfish (gluten free) and also checked ALL the ingredients in the Bloody Mary, with the bartender. I’ve never been able to have a Bloody Mary in a restaurant before but they make them from scratch with Absolut Vodka, so I indulged. First time eating crawfish too! Thank goodness I got mild because holy cow, my lips were on fire! But I didn’t even get a twinge, so absolutely no cross contamination, as I can tell if I’ve even had a crumb. All in all, an amazing experience for someone who rarely gets to eat out.

We stopped in here for brunch after reading that there was a GF menu. I ended up staying safe with grits and bacon and didn't get sick. I read really good things about this place and I think our server was just super busy and not quite as trained as he should've been?

I plan to go back next time we in New Orleans. The courtyard in the back was wonderful but it was raining so we sat inside.

The staff is knowledgeable and happy to accommodate gluten allergies. Shared kitchen and fryer, so not celiac friendly. Delicious, and great atmosphere!
