    I loved almost everything I put in my mouth, and our waitstaff could not have been more accommodating or helpful! The lobster tom kha was delicious, and I had to refrain from picking up the bowl and slurping the broth. The pork belly with potato mochi was a mixed bag - I didn't love the mochi, but the pork belly was insane and tender. The spaghetti with crab was my least favorite, very salt forward, but the crab was plentiful and yummy. The annato sesame rolls were exceptional and the jam on the side was so good! They brought a starter of beignets which were very good, and they brought the vegetarian amuse bouche for our friends, which was reportedly unbelievable. I ordered the coffee miso old fashioned which was not to my liking, but it was quickly replaced with the Pika Pika which was perfect and spicy. I should tell you that our server went out of their way to accommodate and listen to our friend with a shellfish allergy and our vegetarian friend. It took them some extra time and creativity, but they were so patient and kind! This food is next level!

    If you're looking for a wonderful change from New Orleans' extensive cajun/creole dishes, treat yourself to Maypop. Gorgeous place away from the Quarter, and the food is wonderfully inventive Southern Asia. Not an extensive, overwhelming menu which is nice, great wine selection, and competent, attentive service. I'm thinking of making Maypop one of my "go-to" places when I visit New Orleans. Do yourself a favor and try Maypop!!

    Loved the idea of Asian twist on Louisiana food! However dishes were small and Louisiana fish dish flavoring was off. Other than that atmosphere was great and service was splendid!

    Great spot if you are ready for something other than traditional NOLA restaurant fare. The fried oysters with manchego were quite good. The octopus was very tasty . The pork belly was a little more fatty than I care for but the lobster tom kha was great; get it with the Jasmine rice as the sauce is perfect with the rice. The Annatto rolls with the shell fish pepper jam were soft fluffy and delicious and the negroni sorbet - wow. Service was very good and wine selection was better than most.

    I have visited Maypop twice and the menu was different each time. Every time the food was fresh, delicious, and flavorful. The cocktail I ordered was amazing. I highly recommend getting the sesame bread (which seems to stay on the menu) as a starter. The vibe in this restaurant is cool, relaxing, and fun. Be adventurous and try something new. You will not be disappointed.

    Overall good with one exception. We asked for a champagne/sparkling wine recommendation. Our waiter brought who we assumed was the sommelier over. She did a great job of describing the options and recommending a bottle. She proceeded to open the bottle without a towel and overflowed onto the floor. I offered her my napkin which instead of using it on the bottle, she mopped the floor with it. Then she started pouring glasses and dripped all over the table. The ultimate oddity is she served it warm. We asked why and she said she’d put it in an ice bucket…after she already poured most of the bottle? The auto 20% gratuity was tough to swallow after that. Post review - The restaurant followed up to explain that they were understaffed for the holiday and off their game the night we were in. They were very gracious and apologetic which we really appreciated. We will definitely give Maypop another try.

    Just an amazing meal! The fusion of flavors…and the perfection of bringing rhetorical most out of every dish, every ingredient. We enjoyed the octopus, eggplant, cauliflower, bone marrow, lobster dumplings and fried cereal milk custard will forever be top 5 meals we’ve ever had coast to coast. Ambiance is perfect for any occasion.

    Food was amazing. We stayed in NOLA for a week and tried many highly rated restaurants. I would say I probably had my favorite bite at Maypop. However, service could be improved. We went with our 4 year old daughter. While replacing our utensils, a male server brought 2 sets for my husband and I, but nothing for our daughter, even though she was sharing the food with us. Again, at the end the meal, the server brought 2 caramel bites for my husband and I, but nothing for my daughter. We have brought our daughter to many different restaurants, from Michelin stared fine dining restaurants to neighborhood eateries and never had any other server treated her like she did not exist. I thought that was a little disrespectful.
