Moved to beignets and they were so heavy and thick, not light and airy. Very disappointed. Steak was tasty.. Full review

  • Rating: 5.0 out of 5"Jul 13, 2014 · by Andy C. from YelpNOLA is my go-to for Happy Hour in downtown Palo Alto. They have great variety on both cocktails and their tap list and the prices are quite reasonable. The chicken and waffles are solid, the gator po'boy isn't bad, and the grits are marvelous. In particular I'm a huge fan of the ambience--the front voodoo room … Full review

My friends and I stopped in for a quick drink before the Caltrain came. It's only an 8 minute walk to the train station. We popped in without knowing anything about the bar and I was in heaven because it looks like a New Orleans … Full review

  • Rating: 1.0 out of 5"Jul 09, 2014 · by Liz G. from YelpIn the past Nola was my favorite bar but since the bartender Jason insulted me I decided not to come back. My friends and I could not believe how unprofessional and rude he was the night he disrespected me. The manager should have a talk with him and tell him that he should never yell at a client or call a client names without a reason! Full review
