Vizzard's on the Avenue-Opinions?

I'd appreciate everyone's opinions on this restaurant. I'm coming to New Orleans for a visit and considering all my options.

  1. i've been 3x and have had great food every time. In particular, some outrageously good scallops. I like the space, too.

      I've been once. The food was unimpressive, and not particularly unique, and the hotel-restaurant atmosphere permeated the meal.

        "The food was ... not particularly unique"

        Are you sure you're talking about the right place? If you weren't impressed by the silky-smooth scallop flan and blue-cheese chocolate cake, you need to go back and try them. That you mention a hotel atmosphere also makes me think you're thinking of a different place. Vizard's has about as much hotel atmosphere as Matt and Naddie's.

        OP - When I went, Vizard's was unusual, unique, and interesting, but like Mike, I've only been once. However, I was just talking about it with some friends this weekend and they shared my opinion, so I would definitely put Vizard's on your short-list.

        Agreed. That scallop flan was amazing.

      2. We were there in September and our dinner was excellent.

              Yes. Moving to the former Alberta location on Magazine St. Should be open by New Year's Eve.

                why are they moving, he has changed locations a lot, who is going to his avenue location?

                  I've recommended this place before on the boards i believe. My old roomie Meatball is one of the guys on the line. Kevin, is a genuinely nice guy to boot. The food is very good and not too pricey for the quality. I think there has been a bit of a hang up on the move but it is happening by February according to insiders.

                  I remember last Gras. Walking into the kitchen with Meatball to use the bathroom and having the Soux take my lady and I into the freezer to eat local caviar off a spoon...

                  I love this place sometimes.
