    I love the size of this restaurant and the simplicity. My fish was delicious. The veggies in the risotto were a bit hard. But it’s a special place with a very unique environment that’s well worth the visit.

    Disappointed in food quality. Didn't feel welcome. Server did a good job though and was very friendly. One of my guests had uncooked shrimp. It was not handled well. I know this is a popular place so maybe we just had a bad night?

    One of the best dining experiences since moving to BR from downtown NOLA. Spot on service. Terrific food that was properly prepared and served with a nice presentation. The craft cocktails were well made. Like all other good restaurants these days, the pricing was a little more for the experience. I’d rather pay a little more for the value and portions we received. No doubt this has been added to our restaurant rotation.

    Eliza is a very quaint restaurant and has a fantastic atmosphere. It was a lovely place to go for a nice dinner. While the service was great, the food was just alright. Admittedly, I didn't enjoy the risotto that came with my fish, but the meal was still fine. It was a bit overpriced compared to what was served, but overall I enjoyed my visit and would eat there again.

    Liked the setting and the menu It could be a great little place I have been following on insta and from the postings looked like a great place The reality was not so much Still looked great but food was not impressive and definitely not worth the $ Filet was tiny and part of it was fat so made the edible part even smaller The chimichurri on the steak however was pretty good The crab cakes were a huge disappointment they were filled with a lot of filler and not much crabmeat Unfortunately I will be unfollowing and not returning Dining out is so expensive these days that truly you have to give me something I want to come back for

    We decided to try the Réveillon menu, and it was delicious! They ran out of a couple of items, but gladly subbed something of equal or superior quality. The service was 100! Definitely will return!

    We were not seated for our 7pm RESERVATION for over 45 minutes. We were there for a special occasion and to enjoy a Revillon Menu. The dishes were unremarkable. The Duck Confit tasted and felt like dry overcooked chicken. There were approximately 9-10 slivers of crabmeat on one of two pieces of fish. We ordered the two desserts, and they were out of one of them. This was for a reserved seating made many days in advance. Not likely to return.

    My wife and I ordered from the holiday Revillion menu (with course wine pairings)...a great value (generous portions!) and really enjoyable. The turtle soup was some of the best I've had. Our server was super attentive and went out of her way to make sure our food came out in a prompt - but not rushed - manner, as we were out for dinner before heading to an evening concert. Definitely one of the more enjoyable local dining experiences we've had in recent memory. We'll be back (for a third time) very soon!

    I ordered a cocktail. My husband ordered a bottle of wine. Waitress forgot my cocktail. Waitress failed to take our order. We had to tell her she needed to take it. My daughter ordered a sprite and sparkling water was delivered. My daughter told her that she was allergic to shellfish. Waitress served her order of fried catfish, let her eat a bite, then said it was cross contaminated because they didn’t change the oil it was fried in. She then asked my daughter for another item to order. Cheeseburger medium well. Easy, right? The thing came out burnt. I then asked for more water for the table and she poured still water in my daughter’s “sprite”. I told her what she did and she said that she would replace it. She never did. The whole fiasco took forever. Never going back. This place has gone downhill.

    Very unapologetically out of several menu items. Should have been told this upfront before we selected our drinks or meals. Service was not great. Food was mediocre. Appetizers were the highlight.
