Being from New Orleans, I am particularly offended by this restaurant's claim on Creole / Cajun cuisine. The menu description was a forewarning of the dismal food: Jambalaya with cajun rice and Corn Etouffee and spicy sauce. Cajun rice, corn Etouffee? They don't exist back home. And if they did, they wouldn't be in Jambalaya. Etouffee is a stand-alone dish. Against my intuition, I tried it, anyway. The meal was perhaps closer to paella, but I do not want to insult Spain, because beyond not being authentic, the food was absolutely lacking in flavor. And the purported andouille sausage was no such thing. The atmosphere was nice; too bad the food isn't. I would have gone to this place again despite it not being authentic if the food were good, but it is not. I'm calling the LA National Guard out to occupy this place and shut it down.

good ambiance, pleasant service, but the peculiar menu (mixing different cuisine in an unsuccessful way) and the very poorly executed dishes are a miss. Sushi dishes below standards. not going back.

We've been going here for years. The food is good, with a surprisingly "upscale" presentation, and the comforting menu is eclectic. My favorites are the Jambalaya, the Mesquite BBQ Chicken Breast and all the seafood specials. The service is friendly and attentive, the prices reasonable. This is our default place in the 'hood.

This place is well thought out but needs less seafood for the non seafood lovers. their soups always contain some type and it leaves nothing for the non seafood eater. but everything is always very well put together. 4.5 def!

My wife and I get dinner delivered from this place a couple times per month and have found the food to be consistently fresh and good, if a little unimaginative. The daily specials are good too although they don't change all that frequently. Reasonably quick delivery and good service make it all the more appealing.
