Ambience? Decent. I came here with my friend and boyfriend around 11:30pm on a Friday night. We had been trying to find an open restaurant around the French Quarter, and Coop's Place seemed to receive high praise.
From the moment we entered, the server was relatively rude. It wasn't particularly welcoming, but he seemed busy so I brushed it off. The menu wasn't particularly vegetarian friendly, but being the only vegetarian at the table, it wasn't too difficult to accommodate me. I ordered a plain veggie burger with fries, which is generally pretty foolproof. My boyfriend ordered a duck quesadilla as an appetizer, lamb ribs, and blackened redfish. First of all, I told him that he'd ordered way too much food, but that ended up being the least of our worries. My friend ordered red beans and rice with fried chicken.
My veggie burger patty was dry and tasted like dirt. My boyfriend liked his ribs and redfish, but said that the duck quesadilla, which was floating in a pool of orange sauce, tasted like vomit. My friend didn't particularly like her food, either.
Maybe we just had poor luck, but I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone!Recommended for:Vegetarian

I would definitely recommend this place if you're looking for great jambalaya, and if you're going to be in New Orleans you must be! I've grown up eating authentic creole food since my father is originally from New Orleans, and this place served great jambalaya, dare I say even better than my old family recipe? Try the fried chicken too. I haven't personally had it yet, but others says its the best.
