re: Went to Grand Isle Retaurant for the First Time Last Night - nikinik
The smoked fried oyster with the aioli is in my top 5 apps in the city. I love to order just that with a salad. They just got a new chef about a month ago, and they're really stepping up their game. He's really into using local seafood and produce. I went the party where they introduced some o...

re: Sammich Owner Responds to Reviews - nikinik
They expect the events to give them exposure to Yelpers, who are normally the type to talk about food and give recommendations to friends. It is not done with the expectation that they'll get a review on their page out of it because they are made aware from the beginning that that's not allowed....

[quote]In return they get a bunch of good reviews from those same yelpers[/quote] Negative. In fact we are not allowed to review a place after we have a paid event there. If we want to review them, we are required to visit them on a separate occasion and review that visit. We can review th...

I've never been to Johnny Sanchez. Complaining just to get a free meal vs. making a valid complaint and the restaurant deciding that you should be comped something, or all, aren't even in the same ballpark. ...

No. Unfortunately, I've never been to Peche, though I'm dying to go! Soon...very soon. Gotta get T-Bois outta the way, then catering an event next week, then a good friend's wedding. Hopefully I'll hit Peche the following week! I won't say that I've never accepted anything free. Sometimes cir...

[quote]I can recall at least a few. [/quote] Really? Hmmm...I challenge you to factually list them. I have no reason to lie about it. For the Luke incident, once the meal was over I told the owner who I was because I wanted to personally let him know how much I had enjoyed the experience this...

Close to never. Nor do I want that. If I wanted the free meal, I wouldn't have insisted on coming back without him knowing who I was. ...

re: Sammich Owner Responds to Reviews - nikinik
He really was stellar. He personally called me and we talked about how he had just taken over as manager and he too had seen the issues I had experienced. He invited me to come back in to eat on the house. I told him I would love to come back, but at a time that he didn't know that it would be me...

re: Sammich Owner Responds to Reviews - nikinik
I'm not calling him anything other than a bad business owner. He made the statement about me not wanting to be contacted. I'm telling you that I can be contacted anytime through Yelp whether it's in response to a current review, as a private message, or as a friend request. I have no idea w...
