I've had this place bookmarked for a long time and finally made it out here now that I live a few blocks away. It's only open on the weekends since the owner couple does catering during the week. The interior is tiny and only seats like 15 people, but I rather like the coziness with the NOLA decor. My very credible source deemed this place extremely authentic in flavor, so you really can't go wrong with what you get. I highly recommend the fried green tomatoes, crawfish pasta, and the pork chop. The pork chop was pretty darn amazing. The dishes are a little pricey though, and takes a little while for the chef to churn each one out. Worth the wait though. PS: the complimentary cornbread is BOMB.

There's not much to look at in the way of decor, and the place is very small (the chef/owner can stick the key in the keyhole and break a window) but the deliciousness of the food more than makes up for it. Service can be slow, but that's because everything is made to order. It's a worth it. Make sure you make a reservation.

Intimate, friendly, flavorfull food made in the same room. All 3 appetizers were excellent, all 3 main courses were delicious. No meal is ever perfect but overall when 3 distinct people agree it was far above the norm, it must be something special.

The food was pretty good here, the decor was a little lacking. I felt the service as a whole could be better. Would come back again.

I do not know what got 1974"s knickers in a twist, but I have never had anything short of marvelous from this restaurant. The husband and wife team are a delight, the food is exquisite. It is tiny as a postage stamp but that is one of its pleasures. The dog tied up to the door is a beloved fixture and adores tummy rubs. I introduce all my local and out of town friends to it and from there on in that is where they demand to go...."We will be in town this weekend and please make reservations there". Given all the choice of restaurants in SF that is a strong recommendation. Definitely a cult following. Today is my birthday and only one guess where I will be. As urbanspoon said, "cornbread is heavenly" but so is everything else. Give yourself a little extra time as parking can be a problem, but try along Lincoln or along the beach and walk back.

First of all the waitress acted rude and rushed us to get there on time for our reservation, as if there would be a line around the corner. When we arrived there was a dog tied up to the door that kept us from entering because of the leash. The place was as big as a handicap restroom. They had no Abita beer or hurricanes. So, I got wine and they barely poured me a glass of it. They were cheap with the portions and quality of food presented. The cornbread was good, but burnt. The fried tomatoes were RED tomatoes go figure. The BBQ shrimp were already peeled, definately NOT gulf shrimp and may have come from Costco. The gumbo was a little smokey flavored a little spicey and watery. The meal was nothing like NOLA would have served even during a hurricane. The garlic mashed potatoes were good. The cook added way too much salt to my Crawfish pasta so I couldnt finish my entree. The Crawfish pasta was more like Mac n Cheese with crawfish added. The side of corn looked like something someone threw up and served to you. Nothing authentic about this place. It lacked the spice and zest that New Orleans food is about. Appparently anyone with out NOLA knowings can decorate a place with beads and call a whole in the wall Creole/Cajun . If you dont know southern cooking or Cajun style food very well then you will be fooled with this immitational restaurant. We were totally dissapointed and would highly recommend a trip to New Orleans if you really want to experience the TRUE hospitality and flavors of Cajun/Creole cooking and people. Do not waste your money. It was over priced for the UNAUTHENTIC low budget FOOD that was prepared.
