    This wisteria covered courtyard is one of the most beautiful outdoor spaces in the city. Enjoy delicious Creole-Cajun food, soothing jazzy tunes, crawfish, shrimp, and even made-to-order Benedicts.

    We arrived without reservations. When we inquired about the wait, we were advised 10 minutes. As we were approaching a hour, we inquired and were told we were next, only to have 3 more parties seated prior to us. We were seated next to the kitchen, with a wobbly table. Service was extremely slow - 10 minutes before we saw our server. We placed our order immediately. 45 minutes later one person in our party was served soup. It was another 10 minutes before everyone else's food arrived. The waiter mentioned he'd be back with the Caesar salad which was an entree for one person. He did return with the salad - when everyone at the table had completed their meal. Even getting the checks involved a long wait. The couple seated next to us commented about their extremely disappointing service which involved exceptionally long waits and cold food. Upon returning their food they were told it would be 10-20 minutes before they would get a replacement. Ink marks were on the tablecloth, one menu was missing an insert, the view of the kitchen from our table included a wet floor, silverware that remained on the floor the entire time and a lack of cleanliness.

    We have been to brunch here several times and always had a pleasurable experience. This time, however, we chose to sit outside under the beautiful canopy of vines. Seemed like a good idea until the birds pooped on the table a couple of times. Luckily not on our plates, though! Recommend sitting inside or under an umbrella if you choose outdoor seating. Good food although the small buffet area can be quite crowded at times.

    They were gracious enough to accommodate us even though there was a goof with the online reservations. The waitress's name was Alicia, and she had a wonderful personality and went over the menu with us answering all our questions. The atmosphere was very beautiful with the tree-filled courtyard strung with lights. It was the perfect place for a quiet, romantic dinner. My fried green tomatoes were really good, will definitely be ordering those again. We topped the evening off with a complimentary glass of champagne for my birthday. Can't wait to go back the next time I am in New Orleans.

    Whenever I am in New Orleans, I come to this great place. This trip, as always, didn't disappoint. The server, Alan, was exceptional. He was patient, funny and told great stories. I got the Crawfish Napoleon with fried green tomatoes which was amazing. I got the bread pudding for dessert which is a must! The atmosphere is always great and so is the service! Varied menu too!!

    We went here with a fairly large party (8 of us). We had reservations so they seated us promptly. The staff were nice and friendly, even the kitchen staff were engaging and friendly. The buffet is very large and had a wide assortment of food with a made to order egg station. I enjoyed the eggs benedict and various southern/cajun dishes especially the turtle soup, creole pasta, and creamed spinach. We were seated in the courtyard area which I would recommend if the weather is nice. They rotate new dishes during the brunch so revisits are recommended.

    Imagine enjoying your meal surrounded by small trees; birds flying around; and even a little jazz being played live ...the buffet was amazing ... a chance to sample all the new orleans cuisine ...

    Jazz Brunch - food was buffet style with one server station for the roast beef. We sat for over 10 minutes before a waiter came for our drink order. Chris, the assistant waiter, did welcome us and bring us water. The decor is very nice and I cannot remember when this restaurant was not in business. But, this was our first and last time to eat here. The food was average at best, The "Jazz band was ok. The indoor dining room was very noisy. Located on Rue Royal. Not easy to drive and park in the French Quarter,

    Two drunken sisters went to the Court of Two Sisters. The staff were gracious. Drinks were good. But more importantly they indulged my sister and I. We were not pressured to order up or leave. We did not order food so I can't comment in that regard but I would go back any time I am in NOLA.

    This restaurant caught the attention of one of your companions and they made reservations for us for brunch. I had heard about the restaurant but buffets are not my first choice. We were seated at a table in the courtyard, it is really pretty, there are jazz musicians that move from inside to outside providing music. Our table was not quite comfortable as it wasn't level and kept moving around. The food was ample but not great. Lots of options. You would never leave hungry. We all had bloody Mary's and champagne. I will say the buffet was kept picked up and it was impressive that a cook was taking the temperature of all the hot items to make sure the food was correctly handled. Pet peeve, hot plates on a cold buffet station. What made the experience good was our server, Cece (I hope I have her name correct), she was adorable. Very very friendly and caring. A keeper!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Courtyard setting was perfect for mid morning brunch. Buffet was expensive but food was great. Traditional breakfast offerings along with large salad bar and peel and eat shrimp.

    Where do I start? The food and service was terrible. This isn't the first time I've eaten here, but I loved it in the past. The food was good, a nice selection (not the best, but good), service was pleasant and of course, there's the jazz music and the courtyard. I ate here in 2012 and liked it, I wouldn't eat here if it was free now. The food has been cut in half, there's no running omelette station anymore. All the the hot food was mush and dried out. I think I ate half a plate of food at the most. When I asked about the omelettes which I always enjoyed, they said you could order them still. We ordered 2 omelettes, but they never came, so after almost 1/2 hour staring at my plate, asked. Then they came, but were cold and mine was full of jalapeno peppers, which I hate. If they still had the omelette station, I could have chosen my veggies. Now for the service, after we were seated, we didn't see our server for a long while. It was not busy at all and our server had 3 tables, total of 7 people, including us. It took 25 minutes to get a water refill from a table clearer, not our server. My father was a waiter here, years ago, so it's an embarrassment now that he ever worked here, in my opinion. Our server only checked on us once the entire time we were there. Again, there is no excuse for this bc they was hardly anyone there and plenty of staff. I actually didn't even want to leave more than a 10% tip bc service was so bad, but I left what ever it said on the check to leave. She knew that she had done a bad job and that we were sort of pissed, but didn't apologize. Apologizes go a long way in my book, but I got the impression she just didn't care one way or another. Everyone said it has gone down hill, but my husband had never eaten here and wanted try it. I actually consider it the Golden Corral of the Quarter. I noticed that the price $32 per person has remained constant over the years, may be they need to just raise the price, to have it what it once used to be. But for $70 plus tip, it was ridiculous. I probably only ate $5 worth of food. The only positive thing I can say was the courtyard is still beautiful and live jazz music was relaxing, but this wasn't enough to make up for the food and service. I wonder if their regular, a la carte, menu is at all good anymore.

    We came here with a coach tour group on Saturday for brunch. There was around 20 of us. This place was super without us adding to it but none the less we enjoyed our experience. There was a good range of food to choose from and plenty of it. From salads to fruit, dessert , omelette station and entrees like gumbo and beef short rib it was a lovely spread for everyone. I'd try the Bellini if you like peach, mine was delightful! Our servers Derrick and Jamal were very friendly quick and helpful. We had a nice time here and would go again.

    We were seated at 5:30. At 6:45 we had not received our order. I spoke with the manager who gave me the worst attitude and blamed it all on our waiter. All 6 of us were also very cold and asked for the ac to be turned down and it was not. The waiter was nice and the order came after 2 hours. The food was good but we were all tired and cold and not enjoyed it as well. The manager never came back to check on us.

    This place is expensive, but the food is great, as is the live jazz. We probably won't come here every time we visit Nola, mainly because of the price tag ($210 for 4 of us), but we'll definitely go back for specia occasions.

    We just stopped in for some drinks at the bar and Zac and Kailey were great. We told them what we liked and they delivered some great drinks! I had also heard about a drink that they make, the "Kentucky Frenchman" which consisted of blueberry, bourbon, mint and chambord.....it was great! I cannot believe it is not on the menu!! #secretmenu also, Zac and Kailey should be considered for employees of the month....they are both excellent at suggesting drinks and also serving a large group in intense situations.

    Went here with a party of four and as usual it met our expectations!! Food was great, service was great! Atmosphere is truly New Orleans! A little pricey but this ain't Waffle House!! No offense to Waffle House!

    We were disappointed in this restaurant. It was supposed to be a great place to go, but it didn't meet our expectations. The atmosphere was great! The courtyard was very pleasant to enjoy dinner. The service was good. The food was below average. I ordered the shrimp pasta and I thought Olive garden made better pasta. My wife splurged and ordered a steak. The steak had no flavor and was below average for us. Maybe we are spoiled in steak from Texas. It was also overpriced for the quality of food. The banana dessert was good.

    Beautiful surroundings, tasty food, good music! The perfect trifecta! Made reservations here for Sunday brunch and it did not disappoint. We sat outside amidst the lovely fairytale like foliage listening to the band play softly. The catfish dish was absolutely divine. Almost didn't have room for dessert but had a couple of bites of pecan pie. Delightful. Only downside was the floor was a bit slippery and could cause some problems if you're wearing more delicate footwear. So just be careful as you're getting in the buffet line ;)

    I was here 1 time, for a birthday brunch for my mother. It was a Sunday, champagne brunch. Our waiter gave us a nice bit of history about the restaurant and the 2 sisters. There were the usual offerings of a Sunday brunch, and some of the lines could get a bit long. The food was decent, we sat outdoors in the fresh air, and the best part for us was the most amazing "Happy Birthday" rendition the jazz band came over to play/sing for my mother - New Orleans-style! We were in NOLA for 4 days, celebrating 3 birthdays, and doing the rounds of many of the top-rated restaurants. This brunch ranked in the top 2 for enjoyable meals. I'd definitely come back.

    Had a business meeting here today and the service from Tyrone and Ernest was beyond excellent! The food was very good, the music was PERFECT in the courtyard and the hollandaise sauce on the eggs Benedict was literally the best I have ever had. I hope to go back again soon because I can't stop thinking thinking about it!
