PHONE # – THERE NUMBER IS NOT CORRECT ON THIS SITE, THE NUMBER THAT STARTS WITH 3 IS WRONG. I CALLED THE OTHR NUMBER
Casual Greatness! – I was in town with a cowoker for training and several students suggested Nolas! Great, casual, friendly environment. The owner served us - suggested the Chivito and other dishes - and willingly gave us smaller portion is so we can try them all.
The price was just right and exactly what we needed at the end of a long work day! I never take the time to post reviews, but the experience was yummy, fun and friendly - I just had to write a review.
Great cajun food – This was my first visit to Nola's. I had small portions of both the Crawfish etoufee and the jambalya. Both were deliciious! The service was prompt and friendly and I liked the informal atmosphere. It was also great value for the money. I will definitely return the next time I am in town.
Awesome food - everything is great – This place has an absolutely incredible menu. My parents come down from St Louis and love to have the oyster po-boys because her oysters are so fresh. The shrimp pasta and the bbq shrimp apetizer are other allstars on this menu.
Stop by and have a great meal.
Nice fusion restaurant. – This restaurant is a fusion of latin american, and cajun. I went on the recommendation of citysearch, and nashville scene. I ended up loving my sandwich. the chivito, is a steak sandwich with egg, tomato, lettuce, mayo, and an chimmichuri like Oil sauce. I loved it, very flavorful. My girlfriend got the crawfish etouffee, and she liked her's as well. I will return!
Increible y delicioso!!! -- The best Uruguayan/Argentine food outside of South America – As a Uruguayan living in Nashville, I had been craving the home-comforts of parillada, chivitos, milanesas, mate, and a great vibe. Nola's is the epitome of great cooking and amazing friendly service. It is an amazing place to watch a "partido" of "futbol" or soccer as ya'll say. The only thing it's missing is waves crashing on the beach. Also the best part of every month is the 29th, when Alexia cooks up her special gnochis with a delicious red sauce...a Uruguayan tradition. They also have a good selection of cervezas but nothing from my homeland, and a kick-ass desert cannelonni. All in all, BARBARO/AWESOME!
Expensive, Bad service – I'm from New Orleans, so when I saw that a NO-Themed restaurant opened right down the street from my school I was pumped. Big mistake.
Cajun cuisine is built on two foundations:
1. Being inexpensive
2. Filling you up
NOLA's restaurant fails on both these fronts. Their cheapest entree starts at $8, which is an affront to NO cuisine, which you can get locally for less than $4. Secondly, i ordered their crayfish poboy, which normally is enough for a meal and a half. It barely satisfied my for one ( I made a turkey sandwich afterwards ). Finally, not only did I get an over-priced, insufficient meal, but instead of the red beans and rice side that I ordered, they gave me fries, which I did not notice until I got home.
Ignore Pcall's comments, they're misguided – Apparently Pcall railed against Chef Alexia "stealing everything" and accused her of carbon copying the menu from the once great, now defunct Patrick's Cajun Restaurant. Patrick's was great in it's day, both Patty & Brandt (mainly Brandy) did a great job with the food and everything. But apparently Pcall wasn't aware that Alexia was the cook there at Patrick's. Brandt taught her everything and when he step away she handled it. It's no wonder she followed pretty much the same recipe's and menu items...it's what she had cooked for quite a while...and those of us marooned regulars from Patrick's Krewe still enjoy going into NOLA's every now & then and remembering the great days at Patrick's....God, this town needs a good regular crawfish boil during the season.
One of the best food and speediest deliveries around! – I get Nola's restaurant at least once a week and I am always impressed with their timeliness on deliveries. I very much love their crab bisque soup and their catfish fingers. I have tried to order almost everything off their menu because I think it is fun to do so. They have awesome Jambalaya with just a lot of flavor to it!! I would rate them so high because not only is the food quality awesome, but you are not going to break the bank either and I get my food delivered so quick. Getting the food delivered quick is important to me because I have ordered from other places and waiting over an hour for food is just ridiculous. Last think I want to mention is try their Bananas foster, it is d*mn good!!
I am a manager of a very popular restaurant here in Nashville and it is always good to see smaller restaurants hopefully succeeding in what they do best and Nola's is doing that!!
Great small cozzy and delicious – I am very picky. I do not eat at places where the food score is less than 83. I love this little eatery!!
Nola's is not luxury kind but it is quality and very affordable. My partner and I went there for a bz lunch and we loved it.
Since that every saturday lunch is at Nola's, not only the place, the service and the food are excellent.
Wish she open another place at Green Hills, we will be there every day. The etouffee (spell check) is amazing, it has lots of crawfish and it is perfectly seasoned. They have a cannelonni (spell check) that is to die for. I can't resist not ordering a dessert called dulce de leche crepes because it is an rainbow of flavor.
Besides that you'll see the owners always there, they both work every day full time and that is very important when you are looking for great service.
We are waiting for their wine license, is the only thing that place is missing.
