Correct us if we're wrong, but isn't cajun/creole food sort of known for being spicy and flavorful? The last time we ate in New Orleans it sure was. Sadly, that was not the case at LA Louisanne. The restaurant itself is very nice: comfortable seats, nice bar, live music, groovy decor, valet parking. Unfortunately it all started going downhill the moment we opened the menu and saw the prices. The downhill slide continued with the flavorless institutional salad dressing, the bland fried clams, the seemingly unseasoned fried chicken, and the gummy jambalaya totally devoid of spice. The stuffed pork chops were overcooked and again, pretty plain. For roughly $30 per person for dinner, we were hoping for more than large portions.
Pros: ambience, live music, cheap valet parking
Cons: bland food, expensive
