The cocktails are delicious as well as the food . Corey, our waiter, is terrific.
One of our( 4 pers) choices for a MardiGras meal. We knew the menu (online) and looked forward to the dining experience.
Wine pairing was just o.k. Skimpy amount
of wine in the fflights.
Reason we MIGHT NOT return, spending $200 for the meal, they have some nerve charging an extra $2 for a little more bread for the charcuterie.
It's the principle !!!
We recently moved to New Orleans, and first came to Basin when a local friend recommended their oyster happy hour. It has become our go-to place for dinner! Don't let the rustic decor put you off, this place is about great food and the wait staff are always friendly. We have eaten our way through much of the menu now, everything is delicious starting with cocktails and continuing through every course. Their weekend brunch has a seafood spin on traditional brunch dishes, delicious! The only course we can't comment on is dessert, because we've yet to make it there (yet!).
Saw great reviews but we were very disappointed. Food was sub-par especially for the prices. Waitress was a bit rude and inattentive. Maybe it was just an off night but that’s inexcusable. Royal Reds flavor was off, seemed frozen for too long. Oysters were ok, but there’s much better in town. Wife’s salad entree was just boring and uninspired. My fish entree was good but nothing mind blowing.
In Nola for a week, so wanted to find a place with good reviews and seafood. Open Table had this listed with great reviews, so we made our reservation.
We started with Brussel Sprouts and Seafood gumbo. I didn't try the gumbo, partly because I was too immersed in my own plate, which was devoured very quickly. By the time I finished mine, his as gone as well, so no opportunity to taste for myself. He said it was great.
I had the Butternut Squash Risotto, and if I were at home, seriously would have licked the bowl. It was filled with amazing flavor and texture. Sadly, I do not know what my husband ordered (and devoured) because, again, I was too focused on my risotto. I looked at he menu just now, and perhaps it was the Puppy Drum, but I can't be sure. Whatever he ordered, he must have enjoyed as both of our plates were, again, empty.
We ended with a chocolate layer cake, which after a few bites, had to ask for it in a box. We were both stuffed, and wanted to enjoy the cake with room in our stomachs.
Service was outstanding. Our server, name escapes me, was at our table often - but not irritatingly- filling our water and making sure we were enjoying our food and experience. She could not have been nicer.
We'll be back again next year, so for sure will include this in our rotation.
Strong drinks! Awesome brussel sprouts.. friend had shrimp and grits and said it was awesome. Hubby and I split the seafood plate and it was more than enough food!!!
Once happy hour ended, this was outstanding. Had 10 for Uncles 90th and the food was extraordinary and service top notch. Great spot.
Our server left halfway through our meal to catch a flight. The drinks were horrible, but the food was good.
Not much atmosphere. Cement walls and floors, with bamboo chairs. Felt rather cold. We went there for New Years Eve, which undoubtably is a busy night. Our server was very nice but the meal was super rushed. We were in and out in less than an hour and didn’t get a chance to enjoy the meal because they wanted to turn over tables. The food was good, but expensive, so disappointing that we couldn’t take our time to enjoy everything.
We were here for the Sugar Bowl and selected this restaurant for the location and menu. Service was great and food delicious.
Great food. Good beer. Friendly service. The crab beignet was one of the most delicious things I've ever eaten.
Service was wonderful and food was to die for!
Food was just okay. The "hot" chicken sandwich wasn't actually hot and the shrimp and grits wasn't as good as it looks in the pictures I saw previously before deciding to eat here.
Birthday lunch for son. Good seafood
The food was wonderful... the blackened oysters were a real treat..gluten free friendly.. our waitress made great dinner recommendations and was very personable!!
Amazing - food was great and the service was outstanding
Ambiance was date night friendly for sure. Waiter was available and helpful. We ordered Charbroiled oysters and raw oysters came out. Without so much as a hesitation he switched it out. If he would have left the raw oysters it would have been fine in our book! Ha ha. Oysters were really good. Broiled shrimp were a tad overcooked but okay. We very much loved the brussel sprouts and the entree. (Drum with crabmeat)
I like to try the Old Fashioned's when I go out to eat. The drink I was served was not very good, however It's honestly not fair since I learned how to make my own.
Overall, we had a great experience and would certainly return soon.
Great neighborhood gem!!
Service was amazing. We had 10 people everyone gave a big thumbs up on all the apps and meals.
Food was ok.
As a native New Orleanian I rated the gumbo as average. Very thick, but tasty. The shrimp and grits could have been better seasoned. Great ambience and service!
