Any place that makes the grandiose statement that they are the emanate choice for Louisiana cuisine better make a competent effort. We have enough dive sports bars in this town. So why not up the kitchen skills a bit. Most places of the bayou and
Louisiana style ilk usually can be judged by the basic red beans and rice dish.It is basic Cajun cooking, Yet the Bayou falls way below and even into incompetence in creating this dish. This Should be Cajun Cooking 101. My belief is more emphasis on the kitchen and less on the big screen sports broadcasts. I'm not saying do away with them. It is just the opposite. But get your customers hungry for what's on the menu. I promise they'll stay and watch the games.
I have eaten at Cafe Ole twice. The food was ok but not the best mexican I've had. I am vegetarian and can usually find good veggie dishes on most menus but the food here is just not quality. The waitress are very helpful she recommended a veggie soup that was really good. The guacamole salad is also pretty good and the margaritas and kaluah cheese cake is the best. This place is pretty much a nice midtown hang out for drinks!
I've heard many folks raving about this hip little spot on Main, and so I'm hoping my first-time lunch experience was just a fluke. They were out of many key items (including all chicken and tuna) and so our dishes seemed to be lacking a bit of what was listed on the menu. I tried having a salmon rather than tuna tostada, and unfortunately it didn't quite work, but my friend thoroughly enjoyed the meatball sliders. Although I wasn't entirely impressed this first trip, I definitely will be back to try their dinner menu. It is a bit pricey, but the dark & chic atmosphere make it seem like an ideal date night place.
Went to the new restaurant which opened on August 4th and the food was excellent. Menu reasonably priced, fresh, well presented, salads cold, entree served hot, generous portions. Great atmosphere, servers could improve a little. Overall a great place for the money!
We went once, mid-October, and it was fine--good food, average service, no delays. The charm of the decor, etc. was somewhat offset by it being pretty empty... but the view is nice.
Obviously, since I haven't been back and I live in the area, it wasn't anything too memorable. I'd go again but wish they had outdoor seating. Maybe they do and I just can't tell for all the road construction.
this place is tasty but the service is ridiculous. i have tried it several times, but the service never improves. ONE TIME i had good service, but it was because my friend and i were the only people in the place. bums me out, because the food is good and it's right down the street. dont eat here if youre low on patience.
Awesome food, but need Security for the parking lot. My new truck was attempted stolen. I am scared to come back.
The food is good, and the service is very good. The place is like a full-service version of Pei Wei. This is not a slam; I like Pei Wei.
A nice place, a beer lovers dream.. The menu isn't the greatest selection.. but you can find something to snack on.. wonderful atmosphere with trivia nights.. I would absolutely recommend for beer drinking social people..
Food has always been pretty good, but over the last few years the service has been abysmal.
Its good BBQ but thats really not saying much in memphis. I really do not understand what all of the fuss is about. The sauce is a little too sweet for me.
Service is nothing to write home about, pretty much what you expect to see at a Red Lobster or Chili's. The atmosphere is pretty good. The steaks are good, but on the pricey side. Overall impression is that is good but there are better places in Memphis.
Chez Phillip has lost it's luster. It used to be the Best of the Best in memphis. They have gone to a fix price menu. At the price, every course should be exceptional. I had a soup with truffled popcorn that was just nasty. However the pork course was exceptional. The decour is a little over the top, but I would still recomend this resturant to a non foodie looking for a romantic night out.
I so want to give Bosco's a great review. The beer is great, and the appitizers are very good, try the fried artichoke. I have been to Bosco's three times over as many years, each time my food was either, burned, or raw. My companions food as been excellent. Each time they have corrected the problem with no issues. I want to like the place, but just have no luck when I order food there.
Good, service was very good, but for the price the food should be much better. Honestly, at this price point, I either expect rare and exotic ingredients, or an impressive presentation. Over all I would say that it was good, but there are better choices in the memphis area.
The food was good but the service was sloooooooooowwwwwwwwwww. Went on my lunch hour, and by the end of my lunch hour I still hadn't been served.
Sekesui East is better.
Went a few saturdays back they were all booked so an over zealuos manager in a horrible sport jacket rushed me off to the bar where i had diner ,the bartender(a very cute young lady) was very helpful with the wines flights a great concept but they were served warm,also enjoyed the beef flight seemed to take a long time but was prepared well, I might go back to see the bartender ;)
I think this should read "Dinner for one $18" or Dinner for two $36. This is what I call sneaky advertising! Because nothing I read said "per person" until I went to the restaurant and the card says Dinner for Two $36. Why not just advertise it for $36 not $18. I don't care how "Bang Bang the shrimp is" it doesn't speak much for there advertising to lure people in. Let your food speak for itself because it is good.
I have been there several times. I consider it middle of the road. The prices are not too bad and the service is pretty good. The ribs are most of the time slightly overcooked. Every now and then you get them perfect.
Our first experience was good, but the second time was amusing, in a bad way. We called ahead about desserts and were told they had stuff that they really didn't. Then, the desserts we got were not even fresh. They were dry and crumbly.
