Second time dining. The food and drinks have been GREAT both times but the service leaves something to be desired. Servers seem distracted or maybe there aren’t enough of them? I would dine again but maybe sit at the bar. More

Seafood | Warehouse District, New Orleans

We vacationed in the New Orleans area for the first time ever from Mid-Missouri. Briquette was chosen based on their offering of a voucher on Groupon, and the restaurant's ratings. I am so glad they chose to advertise on Groupon because the experience we had was amazing. We were a table of four guests dining and we all ordered something different from the appetizer, main course, and dessert menu. Each of our meals was well cooked, well seasoned, and plated beautifully. The food was excellent and the service we received from our server, Darrell, was topnotch. He seriously made the experience for us. He was knowledgeable about the menu, wine pairings, even the history of the building, and had great recommendations. If you are looking for a "casual classy" (upscale but definitely not pretentious) restaurant with great happy hour specials and delicious food, I highly recommend Briquette. More

American | Uptown, New Orleans

I really wanted to love this restaurant - had heard some wonderful things about it. I do like the location, ambiance and menu, but unfortunately I received uneven and unfriendly service. Another table (both 2 tops) was seated just before me, and they received all of the server's attention and good humor. He lavished them with repeated visits, long stories, loud laughter, personal anecdotes, etc to the point that it was distracting to us and made us feel unwelcome. Finally, during one of the server's extended visits to the other table, he actually tossed the check onto our table. No gentle placement, no eye contact, no 'thank you'. That's never happened to me before and I was shocked. It was made worse by his failure to recover with a 'thank you' or 'good bye' as we stood and departed - of course he was busy entertaining the other table. More

Discover New Orleans

French, Spanish and Creole influences evolved New Orleans cuisine into a genre all its own. Combine Gulf coast seafood, a butter-based sauce and Cajun spices, and you’re looking at a classic Nola dish. Take the famed crawfish boil, for instance, which locals advise is best eaten as a family. In the aftermath of hurricane Katrina, the restaurant industry banded together to support their city in the wake of serious devastation. New restaurants began opening their doors, and today you’ll find a wealth of cuisines that span the classics to modern reinventions to everything in between.
