LUVNOLA's Reviews
 
In fall 2010, Sylvain opened its doors in one of the world’s most celebrated neighborhoods. By celebrating the city's storied past as well as creating a menu and design aesthetic that blends both the past and future, Sylvain provides an oasis of style and unmatched quality. From dining on elevated bistro classics to enjoying a wine program and cocktail menu that leans toward the classics while embracing the resurgence of cocktail culture, guests will savor the restaurant's unspoiled rawness and modern luxury.<br><br>Our tree-covered courtyard only adds to the space's timeless feel to create a truly New Orleans experience. By restoring the historic doors, ceilings, and balconies to their original glory and adding elegant seating, lighting and artwork, Sylvain feels at once historic, yet thoroughly modern — all done with a nod to the comedic opera that bears its name. And isn't a skillfully-performed comedic opera something any truly great New Orleans restaurant should aspire to be?

"It is a small rest with lots of energy. The Bar was hopping, & the vibe was fun. The menu is on the small side, but there is something for everyone. Most of the offerings presented a new & welcome twist on everyday foods & are somewhat different than most other New Orleans Restaurants .The flavors/foods were rich, but not heavy, & the ingredients were fresh. I felt the pricing was appropriate. The cocktail menu was excellent, with spirits to please everyone. The staff was FANTASTIC, the hostess graciously accommodated a change in our reservation & was eager to see that we were taken car of as quickly as possible. Our waiter, (I forgot his name, but he was so good looking!) anyway he worked very hard & efficiently, meeting our every need."

For two decades Palace Cafe has been serving award-winning, contemporary Creole cuisine in the historic Werlein Music building. Located downtown, at the entrance to the French Quarter, this Dickie Brennan restaurant is popular with visitors & locals alike.

"One of my go to restaurants in the quarter. Quality food, not over priced, friendly atmosphere, not stuffy but a "fancy" restaurant. Good New Orleans cocktails. Never been disappointed here."

Peche Seafood Grill. In French, "pêché" means "catch." Inspired by trips to Spain and Uruguay, Peche will focus on seafood cooked over an open wood fire. Diners can watch as the seafood, along with meats and vegetables, cooks over the flames. The dishes, though, will still be rooted in Louisiana. The restaurant is a partnership between chefs Donald Link (Herbsaint, Cochon), Stephen Stryjewski (Cochon) and Ryan Prewitt, although Prewitt will have primary authority over the new kitchen.<br> Housed in a restored 19th-century building, Peche will share the modern aesthetic of Cochon. According to the Link Restaurant Group, the restaurant will have "high, pickled-wood ceilings; large, soaring windows; a thick-topped Cypress bar; and a marble top oyster bar."

"LOVED IT. The atmosphere casual & comfortable, rustic feeling & smells wonderful! The food is prepared simply but in a way to bring out the best of the natural flavor. We had a shrimp/pasta that was a little spicy, fine for me, a little too much for my husband. Our entree was the grilled whole fish seasoned w/ herbs - Delicious! We had Brabrant potatoes, well done & fresh. The grilled brussel sprouts were excellent. I really liked our waiter he was friendly a& helpful, not stuffy & overly "professional", just like eating at a good friends house. I had a house cocktail, Buffalo Louie. Interesting mix of ingredients, but it really worked! I wished I could have tried everything on the menu! Lastly, the price was reasonable & appropriate."
