    Inventive cuisine in the 4 Seasons hotel. Menu is somewhat limited with no specials. Setting is casual and attractive. Open dining area is noisy. Food is expensive, even for NO.

    Over-priced and overrated. I felt out food was just alright, which is really surprising to me considering this is an Alon Shaya restaurant. I typically love his restaurants. Also, I think it is ridiculous to charge $11 for a single biscuit, but that it is just me.

    Had reservations at 9, seated at 9:15, not bad. Very welcoming and friendly waiters and waitresses. Love the blue crab au gratin, tried clay pot dirty rice very tasty and but on the salty side for me. My hubby liked it. The Baked Alaska was huge and very good. Drinks were great! Wine was excellent. Would come back and try other dishes.

    For such an expensive and high end restaurant, I was not impressed. Food is overpriced for the quality. A lot of it was over salted it under seasoned. Don’t get the fish that’s to share with the table. While it’s cool to see it encased in the salt, it’s bland… really just plain boring fish. They brought out our side before the main course so by the time the main course came the side dish (spinach) was cold. Just underwhelming for what it is. Spend your money at a fine dining location where the food is actually good.

    The service was outstanding. The ambience was excellent. The food was mediocre. We ordered the fried chicken for the table and it had no flavor. Two of us had the duck and andouille gumbo—the roux tasted as though it had been burned—I could not even finish mine. Two of us ordered the crab omelette and it had absolutely no seasoning. The shrimp and grits were delicious and very well seasoned. The beignets were very bready and thick and not light. The candied bacon and truffle French fries were delicious. The smothered okra had too much tomato base. Overall I would skip Ms River and go to Chemin instead.

    Well we are from New Orleans so we wanted to tour our own town. So The Four Seasons is the new spot now. So we tried the restaurant it was a ok atmosphere. The food is over rated the fried chicken shareable was $68.00 but it was not the best chicken I have ever tasted. Popeyes is better. Also we tried the clay pot dirty rice it does not taste like New Orleans food or dirty rice it’s different to each it’s own. But overall very overrated. So if you want the experience of some expensive not so good food that’s your place.

    It’s difficult to know exactly what this restaurant wants to be. The menu, with expensive caviar and 70 dollar duck entrees suggests a very high end experience. However there were many patrons wearing shorts and T-shirt’s. The food was good, particularly the appetizers, but there wasn’t any single dish that competes with the top of the New Orleans restaurant options. There wasn’t any single dish that would have me racing back. I will probably go back in a few months. Maybe they just need time to figure out what they want to be- high end or good solid middle of the pack restaurant.

    Our waitress was fantastic, super attentive, sweet, and helpful. Food was good but not for the price. Price was a little much for the food we received-$38 for not even a full snapper filet maybe half a filet. But food was good.

    Great service from the time we arrived at the hotel. Very attentive valet service and it’s wonderful that Miss River covers a good portion of the cost of that. It is very much appreciated because my wife has difficulty walking. We were greeted at the restaurant with warmth and sincere interest. And the food there is always fantastic and reasonably priced when you consider the great ambience, the service, the attentiveness of all the staff members and a great bar.
