    I enjoyed my birthday dinner at Trenasse. The service was excellent! Everyone’s food and drinks were delicious. My only complaint is that my scallop dish was gritty, which took away from the taste of the dish. I look forward to going back.

    Experience and food: I went here for a date with my boyfriend and we decided to order multiple dishes to try together. Everything came out perfectly, one after the other with time to finish our dishes (so our table never got overly crowded and we never felt rushed). Our server was honest with recommendations and quick with service. We never had to turn our heads to try locating him for assistance. I forgot to take a picture of the Taste of Trenasse dish, but it was great! The crawfish pie was amazing and not at all what we expected. I was absolutely surprised how much I liked the frog legs. I’m not a spicy food person (gives me hiccups) but I managed to eat them and enjoyed every single bite. Make sure to finish your bites with a touch of the honey comb on the plate. You won’t regret it! The Rockefeller oysters were creamy and delicious and tasted like a seafood pasta without all the extra carbs. The crème brûlée had a pistachio bread slice they garnish it with that we used to dip into the crème brûlée. It complimented it so well that I’m surprised I’ve never seen other places use it with the dessert because it tastes like it was made for it. Drinks: My bf got the Bloody Mary drink and said it was okay. He’s not a big Bloody Mary person but wanted to try it again. He liked the garnishes though. I tasted his and I’d recommend not doing the spicy option unless you’re used to it. The herbs were a little overwhelming in my opinion. However, I got the Cat Nip cocktail for myself and would definitely order it again. He also thought it tasted great! 10/10 would recommend if Lemon Drop Martinis are your thing. It’s that with a little extra touch of flavor, thickness, and smoothness.

    I selected this restaurant because the online menu had a little something for everyone. Upon arrival I noticed many offerings weren't on the menu. The server was very nonchalant about the mention of it. They only had 2 salad offerings both were specialty salads, which contained ingredients that were not suitable for myself or my guest to eat. Then they were out of oysters. It's New Orleans. Charred oysters are the thing. I come from a city whose restaurants are embedded in its culture, so with New Orleans having a great restaurant culture , my expectations were set way too high. I was greatly disappointed in the food and service. I would not consider this fine dining. I would not recommend, nor would I return. The crème brûlée that I had for dessert was good, but not good enough for me to return.

    The food was great, and our server was friendly, but there was a happy hour menu and a regular menu which caused confusion with the server. He didn't clarify whether we wanted the happy hour price for BBQ shrimp or the regular price. We wanted the happy hour price. There were five of us and this created a lot of chaos with the bill. He accommodated us and changed the bill to reflect the happy hour price.

    The food was great. The crawfish pie and the shrimp and grits were the best I've ever had. The steak was cooked to perfection but needed a bit of salt. I have recommended it to several people and I know one is going tonight due to my rave review. Please do not disappoint. :)

    Our dinner at Trenasse was spectacular. The food was absolutely delicious, the best we have had in NOLA so far. We ordered the Chargrilled oyster sampler, crawfish Mac and cheese and the sampler of the red fish, crawfish pie and shrimp and grits. Everything was delicious and our server was outstanding. We enjoyed our experience so much that we cancelled our reservations for tonight and plan to return to try more of the menu.

    Server took a long time to get to table. Then our drinks came 36 minutes after we ordered them. When they got to the table, they were not good. I got the ginger julep and it was a chore to finish. My wife did not finish her drink. For appetizers we got the crab bisque and the gratin oysters. The crab bisque was very good. The gratin oysters were…different. A bland flavor and not cooked very much at all, it was a very different oyster experience than what I expected (fully cook charbroiled). We each ate 2 oysters but did not want to eat the other two. I got the blackened pompano for my entree, and it was ok. Pretty bland. My wife got the roasted cauliflower pasta, and it was alright. The only reason this review is a 4 and not a 3 (and I almost made it a 5) was because of the fried green tomatoes on top a bed of corn salsa. Oh my god was that great. It hit every flavor note perfectly and I want to eat it again the next day and all days after. Kudos to whomever cooked that. That said, the fried green tomatoes and crab bisque are the only things I would recommend.
